these excuses are always tiring, but when we all know how bad the ACC officiating is, the phantom pass interference call early in the game, and also the 15 yard face mask call, plus several calls that kept one of virginia's scoring drives alive, you should just complain to the ACC as a whole, but not blame the loss in any on the refs.

2 fumbles, 1 int, 18 penalties for over 80 yards, your team only had one penalty called for 5 yards, spent the entire third quarter in or near UM territory, 4 possesions worth i believe, and you want to try to hang this on the refs?

groh just lost a ton of my respect, as if his team being arrested left and right wasn't already hurting my opinion of him.

Groh should really be careful of complaining about referee calls in a game where Miami was called constantly for every little thing including some phantom holding penalties, while Virginia was only called on 1 5-yard penalty, despite what looked like at least a few holds.
