Is this Miami's offense?
By Heather Dinich
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Is what we're seeing Miami's offense? Or will it change by the time the Ohio State game rolls around?
Miami coach Al Golden has said that the quarterback competition between Stephen Morris and Jacory Harris will continue after Harris serves his one-game suspension, and that both were dead-even before the news of the NCAA investigation broke. Right now, Morris is making a good case as the Canes' starter. He's managing the offense well, distributing the ball to the playmakers, and making good decisions. He and his good friend, receiver Allen Hurns, have had a good connection, and with a 14-13 lead, they're playing well enough to win. Morris has completed 7 of 10 passes for 105 yards so far.
Of course, it's still early, but as Miami struggles to get through this game with eight players suspended, win or lose, odds are it will continue to search for its offensive identity.
