Very well said.OP pretty much hit all the points. Good win against a tough defensive team in a spot where Miami has shown a propensity for flopping after an early season loss.
The youth movement a lot of people have been asking for is now in effect. 11 and 6 are the best linebackers we have. Flagg, in particular has been impressive. He’s around the ball every time he’s in the game and he makes the sure play instead of chasing (and missing) the highlight reel play. Couch looked very solid and made some nice PBUs . Our corners as a whole looked solid in man coverage but he have issues with zone and not matching up correctly. Not sure if that’s on the players or the coaches or both. Dee Wiggins, thanks for participating. Here’s your diploma. Now kindly take a seat on the bench. I don’t know what the record for worst catch/drop ratio in UM history is but he’s got to be near the top. Pope had a quietly solid game. I think he’s a decent #2 receiver. We don’t have a WR1. Maybe it can be Keyshawn Smith? We’re going to have to continue to attack the outside in the passing game because our quarterback is a midget and our interior line gets shoved into the backfield on ever play. We can’t create throwing lanes to throw over the middle. The tackles do a generally great job in protection. They ride their guys outside and upfield but King can’t step up in the pocket because our interior is horrible. Scaife is the most disappointing player for me so far this year.
But yeah, it’s going to get easier for our offense into the coming weeks. We survived the storm of facing the two best defensive fronts on the schedule in back to back games and hopefully we can continue to make progress. It could be much worse than being 4-1 right now.
Especially on the last part, we played the 2 best Defenses we'll face in Clemson & Pitt, UVA, Va Tech, NC St, GTech, Wake & UNC are all pure trash Defensively, as long as we come prepared to play every week & keep capitalizing off explosive plays for TD's we should win out, not saying we will, but we should.
All we really have to do Offensively is find a Deep vertical threat to take the top off of Defenses & we'll be a very hard team to beat the rest of the way. Gotta hope KeySmith gets his shot in that role. Wiggins has been such a disappointment this year.
