This article makes no sense at all. We're far better than Miami.

Virginia Tech has to be considered the third best roster in that span. Plus they own Miami. And Miami hasn't even played for an ACC crown since joining the league. Only by looking at some recruiting ranking could you make such a claim that their roster is better than ours. And even then its a weak argument. I prefer to see how a roster performs on the field.

Let's take a look since 2008, Canes are 45-31 overall and 27-21 in ACC play. Clemson is 54-21 in that span and 34-14 in the ACC. Also Miami has only finished ranked once (#19) in that span. Clemson finished ranked in 4 of those 6 years.

Also of note, Miami hasn't won a bowl since the 2006 MPC Computer's Bowl. Anybody still think we aren't leaps and bounds better than Miami? There is a reason 80,000+ show up @ Death Valley while significantly fewer attend UM games.

It's not even close. Go Tigs!
