Earlier this week, I laid out the argument for how the ACC had not one, but three national-title contenders. Florida State is the obvious one, at #2 in the BCS rankings after its 51-14 demolition of then-third-ranked Clemson last week. But Miami came into the week ranked seventh, with a game at FSU next week and a game at home against #14 Virginia Tech, the other contender in my argument.
Why did Mike London flub the end-half scenario that left at least three points on the field after a Virginia drive that got stopped at the Georgia Tech 1 as the first-half clock expired?

The Yellow Jackets maintained a tenuous 14-10 lead despite committing four first-half turnovers, and pulled away in the fourth quarter to post a 35-25 win over the hapless Cavs Saturday in Charlottesville.
The endhalf sequence Saturday against Georgia Tech is why Mike London is not the right coach for Virginia.
