Well, now we know why Garcia was never going to start. He has a LOT of heart, and a LOT of guts and LOT of desire to win games… But unfortunately he does not have the skills needed to compete at this level. He may have been awesome in HS, but his skills don’t translate to the FBS. To be fair, his OC did him no favors. I was really puzzled by the Gattis playcalling.
Watching that train wreck of a game at UVa, I was having flashbacks of the 2007 NC State @ Miami game with Kirby Freeman at QB and Patrick Nix at OC…
Freeman was another highly rated HS prospect that could not cut it in the FBS and I am afraid Garcia will suffer the same fate. I really feel bad for him.
I completely understand your point, but what I am basing my opinion (and let’s face it–it is the opinion of a rank amateur) on what I see during plays. Underthrowing passes, overthrowing passes, reading defenses, etc. It just looks like he’s struggling.
Maybe some time and gametime experience will do the trick, but my gut tells me he just doesn’t have what it takes.
For sure struggling. I think based on how all 3 have struggled though, it’s a lot more to do with offensive planning. I mean I wonder if our first drive is even scripted it’s so haphazard, especially with routes.
And I can understand the criticism that maybe our WR don’t understand the trees and options…but then why are we putting out an offense where none of the QBs and WR are on the same page?
I dunno, offense is a mess. Gattis a terrible OC. Makes it hard to figure out if the position coaches and players are trash too or just covered in the Gattis stank. People say you can’t make chicken salad out of chicken shit in defense of the coaches…:the inverse is true too.
I didn’t think anyone could be worse than Patrick Nix. I was sorely mistaken.
Sometimes I think the hate for Miami is so so so strong that people kamikaze their careers to come fuck it up for us. Who knows, maybe they getting paid by boosters from other programs to come make sure Miami doesn’t rise again.
