Jarren Williams was the surprise pick when he was named the starter leading up to the game against Florida. Williams didn’t have the attention with the transfer of Martell and return of Perry.
Now Jarren Williams has a tall task when he opens up against Florida and it starts with fixing an inept offense.
Building Off Last Season
Mark Richt was a good coach but he the game had passed him by. Now Dan Enos is here to fix the team and develop Williams to turn around the mess of last years offense. That won’t be easy as Williams will be running for his life.
Miami has a young line and a true Freshman that was ranked the 100th tackle in his class as a three star. Now he has to anchor the left tackle spot and play against an incredible Florida defensive line. But the cupboard isn’t bare on offense.
The receiving core got a major boost with transfer K.J. Osborn from Buffalo. Osborn teaming up with Jeff Thomas could become a lethal duo. The two have shown they can be productive and have been trending up the entire offseason. Williams could be the hero of week 0 just by showing up and performing adequately. Everyone is writing off the Hurricanes offense after the horrid showing last season. Williams was a top 100 overall recruit and is a talented player. He has talented receivers and one of the best defenses in the country.
Florida has a talented defense, no question about it. But Franks isn’t a great QB. Like Shea Patterson, somehow Florida has tricked the country into believing he is a top notch quarterback. He passed for over 250 yards just three time last season. People also point to his 24 touchdowns to six interceptions. He had five touchdowns against Charleston Southern, not as impressive when you consider he struggles against better teams. Pulled against Missouri, bad against LSU and Kentucky, but man did he give Idaho the business.
Miami comes into the game a 7.5 point underdog. But don’t buy in to all this Florida hype. Unfortunately, Miami just missed out on the preseason top 25 because Dan Mullen can’t buy a win against a ranked team.
