Wisconsin 35, Miami 3: 5 Thoughts On The New Era Pinstripe Bowl

By

4. Miami really, really, really needs a quarterback

Jalen Hurts might be a grad transfer. Buffalo’s Tyree Jackson is available and a desperately needed fit. Maybe Steve Walsh has a little eligibility back, or Vinny Testaverde could step back in, or Ken Dorsey could show up out of the blue.

It’s been the big failing of the Mark Richt era – his quarterback play isn’t good enough.

N’Kosi Perry was a big-time recruit, so either he’s not remotely close to being ready, or the coaching staff isn’t developing him the right way.

Malik Rosier was a serviceable veteran, but he hasn’t been able to get the offense going.

The receiving corps wasn’t good enough to provide any help, but the quarterbacks weren’t making anyone better.

Rosier got the start and completed just 5-of-12 passes for 46 yards with three picks. Perry completed one of five passes for two yards with an interception.

How ugly was the Miami offense? Rosier led the team with 90 rushing yards, and Perry ran for 11. The rest of the Hurricanes netted 20 rushing yards.

By the way, Wisconsin backup Jack Coan completed 6-of-11 passes for 73 yards and a touchdown with a pick.
