Yeah, but the way Miami handled the bowl bans were genius. They didn't announce their withdrawal from bowl consideration at the start of the season but did it more than halfway through the season when they knew they weren't going to a good bowl anyway.
Obviously those self-imposed bowl bans were the right thing to do, but I would have respected the decision even more if they announced it before their 2011 season. If they did so, they would have had that hanging over their heads, and recruiting would have been much more difficult. Again, a genius move.Edited by JUS3 - 10/23/13 at 3:52pm
