Miami Hurricanes vs Michigan State Spartans: Three Stars of the Game
Miami Hurricanes vs Michigan State Spartans: Three Stars of the Game.
The Miami Hurricanes’ second game of the season at Hard Rock Stadium did not go as planned. The game was a total catastrophe, with Michigan State Spartans running back Kenneth Walker III dishing out cutback after cutback to crucial drops from Will Mallory and others. The Canes never had control of the game due to poor execution, mistakes, and penalties. Once we were able to change the channel to anything else, the greatest stars of the game were our eyes. After the Canes’ performances the previous two weeks, D’Eriq King’s fumble on the first drive, and the high amount of missed tackles throughout the game, we should’ve expected the game to go this way. However, Miami’s ability to close the game to a 3-point deficit with 6 minutes remaining gave us some optimism. After a strong fourth quarter by the Spartans, the game finished in a huge blowout.
Today’s assault was met by three players who tried to halt it.
Third Star: D’Eriq King
This is strange since a player who has four turnovers in a game should never be considered for the all-star team, particularly if those mistakes result in points. However, a 38-17 thrashing doesn’t leave you with many choices. The defense was unable to establish and keep the edge or tackle, the offensive line was inept, many pass-catchers, such as Will Mallory, had massive drops, and there were blown coverages in the secondary in the fourth quarter. Essentially, everyone else was so bad that King’s mistakes and liability plays were simply another examples of the afternoon’s awful play. King completed 38 of 59 passes for 391 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, and two fumbles.
Miami’s top defensive end might be Chantz Williams. During the remainder of the season, he must certainly start. In this game, he had several tackles for loss, a sack, and a key incompletion on third down in the fourth quarter. Williams demonstrated his play recognition and instincts on a swatted pass. Miami reduced the deficit to three points on the following possession, courtesy of Williams’ brilliant performance.
First Star: Charleston Rambo
The offensive standout of the game was Charleston Rambo. He recorded five receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown on one drive in the second quarter. The score occurred in a 4th-and-goal situation. Rambo had ten receptions for 117 yards at halftime. With 3:53 remaining in the third quarter, he scored his second touchdown of the game. While absorbing a heavy punch, he demonstrated his very powerful hands. Rambo has a total of 12 receptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns.
Miami is currently 0-2 on the season and is in search of solutions. It’s time to quit deceiving ourselves about the true nature of this group. There is no sense of identity or continuity, and everyone, from the coaching staff to the players, is now average.
