Mike's Thoughts: BCC game (offense)

Miami defeated Bethune Cookman today by the score of 38-10. Read on to get Mike's take on the offensive side of the ball for the Canes.

• For the second straight week, Stephen Morris didn't play a real good game. He continues to miss high way too much. He's leaving the pocket earlier and earlier and missed about a dozen throws that could have been completed. Despite having a strong arm, he is not showing any type of accuracy on deep passes. He simply hasn't taken control of the offense like you thought he would, especially after his Boston College performance. • Duke Johnson continues to play well. I heard that he was only the 10th BCS player in the last 5 years to score a touchdown three different ways. He's a gamebreaker. It certainly didn't take him long to become Miami's best all around football player.

• I thought it was interesting that Eduardo Clements did not serve as the short-yardage back early in the game. When the offense got down inside the five in the first quarter, they went with Mike James and then Johnson – not Clements. He didn't have a big role early in the season and now it seems to be even smaller.

• This team really lacks a downfield threat at receiver. The only real deep threat on the outside id Rashawn Scott and he simply isn't getting open down the field. Morris threw deep twice to him today and it's disappointing that the two aren't connecting more down the field.

• The offensive line recovered and turned in a decent performance. Penalties are still hurting them but they played better than last week. I thought it was a good sign to see Seantrel Henderson playing so many snaps, and on both sides. He has worked his way back into being a legit number six guy on the line.
