The 2001 Miami team was probably more talented than Nebraska, but they weren't a better team. A lot of their players did well in the pro's so people confuse talent level with being the best team. However, they had some big drawbacks versus the 95 Huskers. The most important was coaching, Osborne vs Coker. Also, even with all that talent their QB wasn't great. He played well, but considering the talent level of the 2001 Hurricanes he wasn't that dynamic. I would argue that Miami did not live up to it's talent level, which is why they almost lost two games. The Huskers were very talented too, but we're coached better which is why they blew everyone out.
