Notwithstanding the current quarterback Christmas that Virginia Football is experiencing, when you ask what single position UVA has perhaps been most successful in the past decade, it's hard not to think of the University of Virginia as "Tight End U," and while the current state of things might not suggest that, there's at least one tight end in particular who turned heads while in college and has not one, but two Super Bowl rings to his name.

That guy of course is Heath Miller, and he is one of five tight ends who have been nominated for the SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame, together with Iowa's Dallas Clark, Missouri's Kellen Winslow and Boston College's Pete Mitchell. The fifth, Arizona's Ozzie Newsome, was already inducted after having been selected by a panel of SB Nation writers.

The remaining four are up for a fan vote, and just like forest fires, only you can help Heath Miller.

For those of you too young to remember, or even for those of you too old to remember, "Big Money" graduated from the University in 2005, amassing 144 career receptions, 1,703 career yards and 20 career touchdowns, each an ACC record among tight ends. Miller was awarded the 2004 John Mackey Award in 2004, given to the nation's top tight end, and was the conference's first ever unanimous All-American tight end.

But you have to vote today! So go now and take a quick second to vote for the former Wahoo to be inducted into the SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame!
