BLACKSBURG, Va. -- This reminds me of 2008. The Canes were on a five-game winning streak heading into their game at Georgia Tech, they were the talk of the ACC, and then, well, you all know what happend in Atlanta. They were embarrassed.

This is a similar situation, but it's only the Canes' third game of the season. Miami reminded us today that it's still a very young team. Virginia Tech has outplayed the Canes and looked like the better team, but it's hard not to wonder if the hype didn't start to go their heads a little bit. Are they mature enough to handle national title talk, and a top 10 ranking? Are they good enough for the national title talk and top 10 ranking? Not today they aren't.
