N’Kosi Perry Proving Why He Should Have Been The Starter All-Along

N’Kosi Perry Proving Why He Should Have Been The Starter All-Along

Needing a win to become bowl-eligible, N’Kosi Perry put the Canes on his back in Blacksburg. If there was a defining moment that told me N’Kosi Perry should clearly be the starting quarterback for the Miami Hurricanes, it was yesterday against Virginia Tech. The moment? Miami has the ball on their own 29-yard-line, and just over three minutes to go before the half, trailing 14-10. To say the redshirt-freshman was masterful would be an understatement, but he was so much more. Perry went four-for-five, converted a third-down, ran for a 13-yard-gain, and then finished off the drive by...

Film Review: Miami 38 - Virginia Tech 14

Film Review: Miami 38 - Virginia Tech 14

Hurricanes come alive in a desperate situation Miami won. The Hurricanes broke the four game losing streak with defensive adjustments and the offensive scheme looking more like 2015 than 2005. The growth was there and Cam Davis looks like the next Miami star in the backfield. Now the offensive staff has to build on that growth and Perry’s maturity to beat the Panthers and get a bowl win. TE Screen I really like this play for the Hokies against Miami’s front 7 that is aggressive by nature and by play call. Virginia Tech, coming off a long play-action pass up the seam,...

Miami Hurricanes Football: Bowl Options for 2018

After having a simple and direct bowl placement last year, let’s revisit the process for this season. The Miami Hurricanes earned bowl eligibility with a 38-14 win at Virginia Tech yesterday. That win, Miami’s 6th, secures a post-season game for Mark Richt’s Canes. With that being the case, the only thing left for Miami to find out is not if they’ll be bowling, but where.
