Miami-Georgia Tech Postgame News; Other Odds and Ends

November 15, 2010 at 3:06 pm Leave a comment

After Miami’s dramatic win against the Maryland Terrapins two weeks ago, some writers suggested the performance of true freshman QB Stephen Morris would generate a quarterback controversy in Coral Gables.  After the ‘Canes 35-10 victory against Georgia Tech this past Saturday, talk of a permanant change at the QB position is only going to occur more frequently.  Morris played beyond his years Saturday, throwing for 230 yards and a touchdown against the Yellow Jackets.  Even more impressive is the fact he did not turn the ball over.  Perhaps a more important story was the Miami defense, which limited the potent Georgia Tech spread offense attack to just 10 points in four quarters.  Here is some media reaction from the game:

A few notes before this weekend’s must-win contest with Virgina Tech:

  • Even with a quarterback controversy brewing, it appears Jacory Harris is still not ready to play and will likely sit in Saturday’s game.  Harris sustained a concussion on October 30th against Virginia and has not started since.
  • The staff at CaneSport reports (subscription required) that Virgina Tech head coach Frank Beamer “isn’t taking any different approach to practice this week regardless of whether Jacory Harris or Stephen Morris is behind center for the Canes on Saturday.”
  • The Washington Post reports that Miami’s “massive offensive” line has drawn Beamer’s attention.

Other News:

  • Over at the Sun-Sentinel, Gorten notes that the team is still confident in K Matt Bosher despite his recent struggles.
  • Gorten also notes that C Brandon Linder was named the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week for his performance against Georgia Tech.
  • In recruiting news, it appears ‘Cane committ and QB Teddy Bridgewater did not make the trip to LSU for the Tigers’ victory against Alabama a couple of weeks ago.  Newberg also reports that Miami is hoping to close with a strong recruiting class.
  • For those interested in seeing Bridgewater in action, here are some highlights of his play during this summer’s Nike 7 ON 7 Tournament.
