Miami spring game storylines
By Heather Dinich
Miami will play its spring game at noon on Saturday. Here are your three main storylines to watch:
- Quarterback. This is the most obvious one, and if you watch anything BUT Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris, I'll be impressed. Both have had their moments this spring, but neither has separated enough to be named the starter for this fall. Both threw one interception in the last scrimmage. This is the key to Miami's season.
- Running back. The Canes have a three-headed monster at running back, where Lamar Miller, Storm Johnson and Mike James are all too good to keep off the field. How will the carries be divided, and will Miami run more than it passes?
- Depth at linebacker. Miami has capable athletes here, and Sean Spence is the leader of the pack, but some players moved from outside to middle, or middle to outside, and it will be interesting to see how the rotation works out.
