Canesfan Satisfaction Meter: 65.2%

[Main game post on UM-USF and more (including NASCAR poll) is directly below this in the blog. Also, join us on Twitter @gregcote]

CANESFAN SATISFACTION METER: GAME 11: Results are certified in the latest Canesfan 1aa1csmSatisfaction Meter, and they show 65.2 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Saturday's 6-3 Hurricanes' victory at South Florida, a non-conference result putting UM's season record at 6-5 and making UM bowl-eligible (though Miami since self-imposed a bowl ban).

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 off-field NCAA matters.

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.
