Post-Game: Jacory Harris

Jacory Harris turned in an excellent performance against Georgia Tech in the 33-17 Miami win. Read on to see what he was saying after the game.

On how significant losing the last four years to Georgia Tech was…
"It mattered the most to this team because it gave us fire and motivation to go out and beat this team. They came out with their tricky offense that most teams can't stop, but our defense went out there and did a great job tonight. We had lost to Georgia Tech the last four years and it would've felt bad walking off the field and losing to Georgia Tech another year in a row."

On making it look so easy…
"It's not easy, you just have to have trust and have faith in everybody. As long as you have faith and trust that your receiver is going to run the right route, your o-line is going to protect, your running back is going to protect or catch the ball… We watch so much film throughout the week with Coach Whipple, he shows you that in a certain coverage, if this man drops here, this man is going to be open."

On protection from the offensive line…
"Last game was the last time I had this good of protection."

On what's different about the offense…
"We are just having fun and executing like we were taught."

On the touchdown to Jimmy Graham
"He was my first read, but Georgia Tech may have blown their coverage and had the mike linebacker shaded to the left, nobody covering the tight end, with the safety dropped back 10 yards. So I was hoping Jimmy didn't run his route, and he was on the same page so he didn't. He just ran to the open spot on the field and scored a touchdown."

On whether they opened up the playbook…
"I think we ran some of the things we were supposed to run last week. Last week we ran a lot of plays, but there were some repeats and some things we left out that we ran this week. Mark Whipple is a very creative man and has a lot in store for this season."

On taking it game by game instead of thinking about the first four games all together…
"One thing I want to congratulate this team on is our ability to stay focused. There's a lot of people in the community that are praising us now and they are hyping us up, but this team isn't taking anything to the head. We are very humble we understand we have other teams at hand we have to beat. In order to stay undefeated you have to win the next game."
