CANESFAN SATISFACTION METER: G9: Results are certified in the latest Canesfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 85.1 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Thursday night's 30-12 victory over visiting Virginia Tech putting UM's season record at 5-4 overall and 4-2 in the ACC. In its fourth year, our blog's CSM polls are your invitation after every Hurricanes game to vote on your overall satisfaction with the team and season. The CSM is a continuing weekly gauge of how UM football fans are feeling. 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. Polls never close (you may stil vote), but results are certified official the morning after one full day of voting. In this case that was around 8:45 a.m. today/Saturday.
