Miami D gives Harris another chance
By Heather Dinich
CLEMSON, S.C. -- Jacory Harris isn't the only quarterback completing passes to the other team today. Miami linebacker Sean Spence tipped the ball and Marcus Forston intercepted Kyle Parker. The play led to an immediate 18-yard touchdown pass giving Miami the 20-14 lead.
As expected, turnovers will continue to be key in this game. Whoever makes the fewest mistakes will win. It seems as if both of these offenses are operating in all-or-nothing mode today. They're either hitting home-run plays, or three strikes and out.
One more thought -- Harris deserves credit for shaking off that interception and coming right back and throwing a touchdown pass. The kid has ice in his veins. That's why offensive coordinator Mark Whipple isn't afraid to gamble with him. His greatest strength, though, is also his biggest weakness.
