The Miami Hurricanes cruised to a 35-14 win over the Georgia Yellow Jackets on Saturday afternoon. The ‘Canes took a 14-7 lead into the half and by no means appeared again at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Miami is now 5-5 and doubtlessly bowl eligible, GT is 4-6 a barring a miracle will miss out on a bowl sport once more.

The Canyonero keys to victory over the Jackets had been:

1- Maintain strain on the QB- There wasn’t sufficient strain, particularly contemplating how unhealthy the GT offensive line is. Miami had two sacks and two hurries. Nevertheless, Zach Pyron was knocked out of the sport by a extra aggressive Miami protection than we noticed every week in the past.

2- On offense, run the rattling ball- GT has one of many worst run defenses within the ACC. It was good to see Josh Gattis be capable of dial up the run sport. 43 true carries (one sack allowed) plus Jaylan Knighton and Jacurri Brown going off for large video games.

3- Be much less unhealthy at kicking than GT- Each groups confirmed stable kicking sport performances. All seven mixed PAT’s had been made, GT would possibly’ve had one iffy punt however the remaining for each appeared tremendous.


The Doppler

The most important change for Miami was third down conversions on offense and protection. Miami completed 7-of-12 on offense and didn’t have to aim a 4th down conversion. GT completed 4-of-12 on third down and 1-of-2 on 4th down.

Miami was nonetheless manner too rattling penalized to beat a median to good staff. 9 penalties for 79 yards for the Hurricanes towards 4 penalties for 30 yards for the Jackets.

Miami didn’t flip the ball over… superb! Tech turned it over 4 instances, all 4 on interceptions. Gattis can sleep nicely tonight- Miami dominated time of possession by 11 minutes.


Miami O

I used to be completely impressed with Jacurri Brown’s efficiency. Brown completed 14-of-19 for 136 yards and three TD’s with NO TURNOVERS. Brown averaged 7.2 yards per passing try, practically double his season common. Brown additionally rushed for 87 yards and was solely sacked one time.

Jaylan Knighton took over the characteristic again position with Henry Parrish Jr. out once more. Knighton rushed for 118 yards on 7.4 yards per carry with a TD of his personal. He appeared easy towards the Jackets and didn’t fumble.

Miami’s move sport has been determined for explosives and had two. Frank Ladson and Will Mallory each had an explosive reception. Ladson caught two balls for 42 yards whereas Mallory caught the 22 yard landing on the wheel route.

The ‘Canes O-Line dominated the GT protection. They allowed just one sack, three TFL’s and 0 hurries all sport. GT had been a staff that might get a move rush, however not towards Miami’s again up O-Line.

Above- Streaming the sport off of Ugandan TV forces you to remain off Twitter. I noticed Cam’s SOTU account tweet earlier than this throw. It’s a ball Brown couldn’t drop in for less than 17 yards with out Mallory having to show again.

Had the GT defender not fully stop it might’ve been a PBU. I believed it was going to be a lil extra in-stride however take what you may get!

Above- Fin routes are good and simple in routes. The CB was head up and Ladson simply eased himself inside. No inside assist brief due to the empty set / movement. Good simple one learn pitch and catch. If the CB had inside leverage I ponder what Brown would’ve completed… go to the opposite facet pre-snap or simply ran?

Above- QB designed run with a guard wrap as a lead blocker. The entrance facet down blocked and the guard picks up the skin defender. It’s good to lastly see Miami use the QB run sport as an alternative of simply struggling towards another person’s.

Above- Double learn on this post-snap RPO. Brown will learn the D-Finish. If he “squeezes” (comes inside on the run) Brown pulls for the FB slip into the flat. If the DE “Sits” Brown offers to the RB.

Above- The DE squeezes, the skin LB is now caught in a 2-way difficulty. He both has to play the QB or the “FB.” Both manner he ought to lose.

Above- Now that he’s performed Brown, it’s a high-low learn and Mallory is clearly coated. Skinner isn’t coated and it’s a simple dump off for a TD.

Above- Athletic QB with a tall, lengthy, athletic TE and it’s a cash play. Some basketball gamers make for nice soccer gamers and Skinner has that written throughout him.

Above- Malik Rosier was the final Miami QB that was cellular, and he wasn’t this cellular. Brown provides that fashionable dimension- a QB that may prolong time as a result of he can create area, but additionally can bail out a play name or O-Line difficulty.

Above- Mesh towards man is an attractive factor. Colbie Younger comes free and catches the TD from Brown. Safety held up and Brown didn’t panic on the lengthy arms going up.


Miami D

Kam Kinchens had that sport all of us knew no.24 might have. Eight tackles, 1⁄2 a TFL, one PBU, and 99 yard defensive rating and three interceptions.

Above- I felt like Kinchens would hawk on Pyron on related throws. If you happen to’ve adopted the SOTU account within the low season, Kinchens was the man I had essentially the most religion in from watching All-22 movie of Miami.

Your complete protection got here away with two sacks, 9 TFL’s, 4 PBU’s, and two hurries towards Georgia Tech. Once you play unhealthy groups, it’s a must to dominate them. Miami’s protection smothered GT’s move offense- permitting solely 5.4 yards per move try.

There are nonetheless areas to scrub up- Miami did enable explosive receptions to occur a number of instances. Nate McCollum had 101 receiving yards and a rating, plus a 42 yard reception. Malik Rutherford and Peje’ Harris additionally hit explosives.

The Jackets rushed for 4.8 yards per carry as a staff, primarily on missed tackles. However GT solely managed two TD’s and just one when the sport was inside attain.

Above- Kinchens is a man you simply should let play soccer. When he’s on, he’s manner on. When he’s off, he’s manner off. However these are the forms of gamers that simply should preserve taking pictures, finally they get out of their hunch.

Above- Nyjalik Kelly, no.32, out in area trying like a child deer caught within the median on Franjo Street. It’s not even an actual inside-out transfer or something. Pyron within the younger DE’s head.

Above- The fashionable period is cellular sufficient QB’s that may choose up powerful yards. GT motions into empty, identical to Miami, and runs a guard wrap. Miami is in man and when the RB motions the sector ILB is taken away.

The ILB that stays within the field (seems to be like Keontra Smith) bows over, however then acknowledges run and over runs the play. Te’Cory Sofa, a pound for pound hardest dude on the sector, makes the cease.

Above- One in all my favourite move ideas due to how exhausting it’s to defend. Two outdoors WR’s run zig-outs to maintain their CB’s from floating again and the within (#3) menace runs a nook route. Lovely throw and catch there. If Pyron will get a greater OC in than Chip Lengthy I feel he can actually enhance.

Above- I really feel like for some cause GT and Pitt each attempt to go trick offensive play towards Miami, and it by no means works. GT goes full Tecmo Tremendous Bowl Minnesota Vikings playbook and it’s beneath thrown for a choose.

Above- From beneath thrown to over thrown. Kinchens was ball hawking. He took full possession over the air area and made the acrobatic play.

Above- Kinchens with ANOTHER choose, this one for six. Letting him float extra because the 1-high man allowed him to reap the benefits of Pyron throwing into double protection all sport.


The Wrap

In contrast to the UVA sport, this was the win towards a nasty staff that made you suppose Miami is an okay staff. Brown is clearly a greater in-game participant than Jake Garcia. Gattis and Cristobal gave Brown the outdated Jordan Travis playbook and stored it easy with if/then reads, fast sport throws, RPO’s and move run choices. Nothing too complicated for a younger QB getting his first begin.

I do know this reads like pleasure, as a result of it’s. It was enjoyable to observe a… enjoyable sport. I additionally realizes this can be a bottom-30 GT staff in comparison with a top-20 Clemson staff on the nineteenth.

The Clemson protection goes to be overwhelming for Brown. They’re unique, they gained’t line up the identical manner twice on a drive. They’ll carry strain and simulated strain and rotate and roll by means of coverages Brown has by no means even seen.

Get pleasure from at this time as the following one may not be as enjoyable, however at the very least the followers received this sport and doubtlessly a win over Pitt to rejoice.
