Miami University
I wish all of the sports reporters at the Enquirer would adopt a fair and consistent means of referring to Miami University as opposed to Coral Gables U. (University of Miami). I hope Dustin Dow starts by not referring to the University of Miami as simply Miami. The Enquirer offices are less than 90 miles from Oxford, Ohio, location of Miami University. Most readers of the Enquirer would know that Miami is in Ohio, and Coral Gables is in Florida. What could be confusing to some non-football fans is when his article headline reads: "Miami bolts, leaves Big East vacuum." I know Miami is not going to the ACC, Miami of Florida is going to the ACC, but I don't like the ignorant misinformed. This is a very simple request and a bit of respect they Enquirer could make to a local university. In the article the only references to the state of Florida are in reference to the University of South Florida and the University of Central Florida.
