What team would I be talking about if I said "the Devils of New Jersey?" That would be the New Jersey Devils. Are some of you computers? Are you unable to find "Miami of Ohio" in your databases?

The school's name is Miami, and they play in the state of Ohio. It then necessirly follows that they are Miami of Ohio. I make no claim that that is the official school name, and I know that it is not.

I used "Miami of Ohio" to differentiate between the University of Miami, which is in Florida, and Miami University in Ohio. If someone doesn't follow NCAA hockey, I thought that he or she might think of the more famous university in Florida known for great football and baseball programs.
