GIVE ME THE KEYS – OBB GAME TIME- MIAMI HURRICANES vs. PITT
Keep it together. The season hasn’t gone to plan and the offense is anemic. But no matter how bad things get you need to keep your composure. This isn’t the week to come unraveled with senseless penalties or mental lapses. Miami ranks 79th nationally in penalties averaging 57.3 yards a game. Let’s try to hit the under on that this week. That is something the Hurricanes can relatively control.
Let Ponce call plays. What used to sound as senseless call to arms should at least be considered. Miami is only netting you 17.0 a game vs. Power 5 competition and it is painfully obvious that the offensive personnel have stopped responding to Josh Gattis. Gattis was on record this week stating that the offense had changed three times this year. I suggest we change it a fourth.
Stare at the recruiting section. Yes. That is a key to the game. Any time the Hurricanes fail to convert on 3rd down, or just trip over themselves, look to future. If you stare at the recruiting section long enough, you’ll realize better days are ahead of this program.
