The penalties, turnovers, the many dropped passes, the inability of the line to win the battle from the 1 yard line and last, but not least the refusal of the refs to call even 1 holding penalty on Miami’s O line. For a line that was dominated all game I am amazed they never held. Or did they hold every play to the point where old Smokey with that deep Southern drawl just ignore like they typically do? Yes I would say that is embarrassing and very discouraging to the loyal fan base that shows up every week.
