The Arms Race QB Video Series: Chase Brice vs. D’Eriq King

Hello darkness my only friend. Well it seemed that way after the covid layoff. But the Miami Hurricanes led by D’Eriq King will face off vs. long time coastal opponent the Duke Blue Devils. Chase Brice is under center and now under fire on the arms race.

Chase Brice is a graduate transfer from the Clemson Tigers. He was a three year member of the Dabo brigade before joining the Cutcliffe clan. I guess his hair wasn’t flowy enough or his game wasn’t strong enough but Brice ultimately decided to drive further north on tobacco road.

Brice is a 235 pound Redshirt Junior this year and makes way from his hometown of Grayson, Georgia. His current season is not up to snuff as he has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns and his accuracy is right along the N’Kosi Perry line. With a 53.4 completion percentage and 13 picks vs. 9 Bangs, not good.

When Brice and the Blue Devils fell 56-33 vs the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, it was clear early that the gunslinger’s sights were off. Just some forced balls and the penchant to put the ball in harms way were apparent early on in the film. Brice would finish under 50% on the day.

Meanwhile D’Eriq King was being battered and sacked while trying to maintain the rudder on a successful Miami campaign. King would navigate another late heroic comeback and the stoic captain certainly has navigated troubled waters multiple times this season.

Recently on a nationally syndicated podcast (I shall not name) a talking head (I shall not name) said D’Eriq King is a one read guy. I would openly challenge him to a game of X/O chess and simply say “King me.” On some of these clips you find King’s penchant for finding tertiary reads amongst the confines of a heavy diet of quick hitting RPO’s.

Popcorn and Pencils it is another edition of the Arm’s Race. The opponent suddenly changed but the format remained the same. Two men enter, one man wins. This one is going to get lopsided quick hopefully like the score this Saturday. #Gocanes.
