Miami is the Jobu to my Pedro Serrano. I'm good to them, I stick up for them, and they help me look good by getting thumped by Virginia. Finishing drives has been a major issue in all of Miami's losses this year, and ... well, it was certainly an issue on Saturday, huh? Still, Virginia was easily the more efficient team and earned the win regardless.
