Boys and Boos Texas A&M edition. The Miami Hurricanes traveled to College Station to take on Texas A&M. This was the first primetime, measuring stick game of the Mario era. I had the audacity to pick against my beloved Hurricanes this week in our pick’em. I just did not feel good about this game at all and unfortunately Miami suffered their first loss of the season 17-9.
Self inflicting wounds was the name of the game last night, Miami beat themselves. The Hurricanes had more yards, first downs and TOP. A giant key to the game was some special team miscues. This game shows growth with the Hurricanes though, there was plenty of good to come out of this. Here is my BOYS (things I liked) and BOOS (things I didn’t like) vs. Texas A&M.
The run game was great in my opinion. Henry Parrish Jr. had 85 yards on 16 carries that’s an average of 5.3 yards a carry and Rooster had 77 yards on 14 carries good for 5.5 yards a carry. That’s a bright spot in this offense, I have no worries about the Miami rushing attack going forward. That offensive line was mauling the A&M front, huge props to those guys. Also we didn’t give up a sack, that’s a win.
DJ Ivey, after all the slander he has received from the fans (I’m guilty) the man showed up and balled out. Ivey had two pass breakups and 3 tackles. The Defense as a whole played phenomenal besides the play where Achane broke 100 tackles to score. The D came up big time and time again with key stops.
Will Mallory had a game, he was the Canes leading receiver with 6 catches and 56 yards. Glad he is okay after that nasty hit, could of been very bad.
