Beating the Jacory Harris-led Miami Hurricanes from what I've seen over the past two years is often dependent on putting pressure on him because he isn't the most skilled or refined passer. He's accurate, but is not sharp with his reads. If you pressure him, you can force him to make a bunch of mistakes.

But with Romeus done until apparently the last week or so of the regular season, I'm not confident in our ability to put pressure on him to create turnovers for our very young QB. I didn't see the game vs. New Hampshire, but we didn't have great success putting pressure on Utah's QB for most of the game.

So basically unless Dion Lewis and Pitt's running game dominates this one, I don't expect Miami to break a huge sweat.

I know Sunseri is the future, but through two games vs. Utah and Miami, I haven't seen much from him that makes me believe he gives us a better chance to win football games over the No. 2 Pat Bostick.

Bostick played a little tonight, and I liked how he went right for Baldwin on his first few throws. I like Sunseri's toughness and moxy, and he definitely has a much better arm than Bostick, but his lack of experience negates some of those advantages.

So I'm wondering why we're not giving Bostick, the senior the job, and then hope that next year Sunseri can make things happen with another year to watch under his belt.
