CANESFAN SATISFACTION METER: GAME 6: Latest results are certified in the Canesfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show a big leap to 85.3 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Saturday's 30-24 victory over North Carolina in Chapel Hills, a result putting the Hurricanes' season record at 3-3 overall and 1-2 in the ACC.
The level is the second highest of the season, trailing only the 92.8% satisfaction that followed the Game 2 victory over Ohio State.
In its third season, the CSM is a continuing weekly gauge of how Miami Hurricanes football fans are feeling about the team and the program's direction, with a new poll appearing in the blog after every Canes game. Criteria for voting is your own, but I suggest you consider the most recent game's performance and caliber of opponent, season as a whole, program's direction, and your overall degree of optimism -- all in the context of reasonable expectations. This year I also suggest making this about the team and how it performs on the field, not about the NCAA or Nevin Shapiro.
Polls never close, but results are certified official the morning after one full day of voting, in this case that was around 9 a.m. today/Monday.
