The Miami Muff- Miami's failed kick fit perfectly into the field goal saga between Miami and Florida State. It was labeled the Miami Muff by media outlets and Seminole fans alike. Here are some sources which reference the "Miami Muff". The first is a Miami media source, the second is a Tallahassee media source. [[1]]

Wide Right IV was removed because it was not game deciding like the others. After FSU missed the field goal they ended up getting the ball back and had another chance to win the game.

  • I reinserted it. The exact timing of the kick isn't the only relevant portion to the outcome. The Miami Herald and South Florida Sun-Sentinel both dubbed it "Wide Right IV" and there are many other sources as well. A simple google search will confirm it. AriGold 14:31, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Not trying to make this an editing war but I feel like we can discuss it atleast. I did a Google search and the only sources which referenced "Wide Right IV" were random blog entries. Besides, we can determine if it belongs anyway, regardless of sources. I feel like it takes away from the nature of the others kicks if you keep Wide Right IV on the list. FSU got the ball back regardless of the kick and had a chance to win the game. The other kicks sealed the game.
