I saw so many tweets about the Miami Miracle and many were helpful. In the end and IMO, this is the best summary, though:



What else is there? Duke was a 10-point favorite at kickoff. Miami's QB had completed 6 passes in college. Miami helped as much as they could with 20+ penalties. Duke still would've just barely won with **** play calling all night, **** QB play until 5 minutes left, **** special teams and **** coaching. A kickoff out of bounds wins the game barring a 65 yard TD with your best defense on the field. Not playing Boehme ever probably wins the game since Sirk would've scored on the opening drive. Duke so *** for letting that happen, is exactly right.

Sorry, was at the game. Will be looking at downloaded clip of the full play tomorrow to pick out the 4 (by my count) blocks in the back and clear knee down before lateral.

According to ESPN, Miami had a 0.1% chance to win the game on the final play.

This was worse than the Mets loss. That was on the players/manager not getting it done. This wasn't.

They're not going to overturn the result--there's no precedent for that (outside of maybe MLB, which has a process in place). I'm surprised we got as much as we did out of them--was expecting something a lot more insulting and patronizing.

Not that you guys want my stupid and simplistic perspective, but I posted this elsewhere:

Who cares about a suspension? As a non-football guy, I'm not as invested in this. But it seems to me that zero punishment for the officials and an overturning of the results would be much more meaningful. What are you stating by suspending them? Either you're saying that they screwed up, in which case fix the mistake, don't punish the people who made it. People should be allowed an occasional mistake on their jobs. Or you're saying they purposefully made the wrong call, in which case a suspension is less than a slap on the wrist. This is akin to the phenomenon of public apologies: an utterly pointless PR move.

I agree with that, Lhys. It's just a lame PR move to say "we did something" but it doesn't really have any impact or rectify anything.

Another group of officials gets to eat and drink for free for the rest of their lives in a very desirable city to do so in, with the sacrifice of officiating two ACC games they didn't care to be at anyway. What a harsh penalty.

If I were an official, I would get into baseball and make a disastrous call that gifts a World Series to the Yankees over the Marlins. No one would care about the Marlins getting screwed, and I would live like a king in Manhattan for the rest of my life. What is the incentive not to do this? No one is going to overturn results after the fact, so there is no downside.

I have no horse in this race, but that's nonsense. Miami was playing it's first game after firing it's coach, was playing with their back-up QB and committed over 200 yards worth of penalties. This was absolutely on the Duke players and coaches for not getting it done. They trailed by double digits at home against a team and program in turmoil coming off of a 58-0 nothing loss to Clemson.

Was Duke wronged at the end? Absolutely, but it's Duke's own fault for even having been in that position to begin with. They should've blown Miami out of the water when you consider Miami has an interim coach, back-up QB, and 200+ yards worth of penalties.

Nope. Disagree.

Mets have **** themselves. Duke may have played poorly, but put themselves in a position to win.

That happens in football. I was not sold on the big line favoring us at all, because of the intangible factors at play. This always had the potential of being a trap game, well before the emotion of playing for a new coach and the off-field stuff with a player's parent's death. Did we play like crap? Sure, we did. But in spite of all that, we were in position to win the game and seized the opportunity.

And then it all got ripped away so painfully. ****, all I am is a fan, and it hurt me. And using my kids as an example, exactly how am I supposed to explain that yes, the referees made a big mistake, and their bosses have said so, but yet, that big fat L still goes against us?

Oh, they got suspended. Yippee. Sure does help.

I am not. I don't support a college football team. I post a lot on a Miami message board, however. Like a lot. They actually gave me a 2 day ban for trolling them with Duke stuff.

If you insist. I've done a lot of trolling on TDD, so it's quite possible I said that. If I recall, however, I posed as a Notre Dame football fan on TDD.

My sports fandom has always been:

Yankees, Knicks, Giants, Rangers, Duke. soccer: Liverpool, Juventus, USA and Italy.

I only will watch certain college football games. For the most part I think college football stinks. I like a lot of the SEC battles, and I'll watch a lot of the teams filled with kids from the southern state savages from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, etc. The Big 12 and Pac-12 have no understanding of defense and the quality in the ACC is horrendous. Miami football stinks. Duke football stinks. Vtech football stinks. The entire coastal division is a steaming heap of crap. I refuse to watch that garbage.
