"When you really look at it closely, you're looking at a Miami team that as great as they've been all season long, this loss was not entirely out of the realm of possibility. When you look at how close they came to losing their two previous games against Virginia and particularly against Clemson. So I think these narrow victories by Miami of late signify a drop-off in their overall level of play, and at least for the time being drop them off the top line. They're at No. 5 overall, so it's not like they're completely off the radar for a No. 1 seed. In fact, they are very much in position to come back up either if a team ahead of them loses or if they earn it with their own play."
