We mentioned four sacks. The Miami Hurricanes were the number one rated offensive line last week and were the only unit who graded in the 90th percentile. This week, some confusion and different looks up front by Southern Miss confused the hog mollies. The running backs in conjunction with the big men up front need to do a better job protecting TVD.
Miami’s defense suffocated the Southern Miss run game. Southern Miss’s super run offense was limited to 33 yards on 24 carries. Star running back Frank Gore Jr. was bottled up and battered. The Golden Eagles however found some success in the passing game.
On this play, you will see a bunch formation and some slick wide receiver leverage as the catalyst for a first down. The Miami Hurricanes under Kevin Steele were in a better position to play the quarterback run this week. Corey Flagg was a quarterback spy and the rush lanes were intended to keep the quarterback in the pocket.
