Student of the Game Film Review Series: Miami Hurricanes vs. Duke

The Miami Hurricanes drubbed the Duke Blue Devils 47-10. This was more than likely the last game of the Rhett Lashlee Hurricane era.

The Miami Hurricanes final regular season game ended with a 47-10 beat down of the Duke Blue Devils. The Hurricanes totaled 47 and mercifully took the foot off the gas in the fourth quarter pulling Tyler Van Dyke. Miami did not score a single point in the fourth quarter.

TVD was special once again. The freshman finished the day 34/49, 381 passing yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. This was Van Dyke’s sixth straight game where he tabulated over 300 yards via the air and three passing touchdowns.

If the Miami Hurricane program was smart, you start the TVH 2022 preseason campaign now. Tyler Van Heisman. TVD will be the quarterback face of the ACC and his meteoric rise this season is proving not to be an anomaly. The numbers he puts up week to week prove it.

Here you will see the freshman gunslinger’s ability to keep a safety at bay and lace him up with some cement cleats. The Blue Devils came out in an uncharacteristic (for them) 3-3-5 defensive alignment and you sensed their urgency to limit the big passing play. They still couldn’t do it.

Records were broken on Saturday. Charleston Rambo is now the single season receiving yards and receptions leader all time for the Hurricanes. Mike Harley is now the respected all time leader in total receptions.

The Hurricanes under Rhett Lashlee came out firing on all cylinders and there was no way these two weren’t leaving Wallace Wade stadium without breaking records. It was a fitting end to what many believe is the last game in the Rhett Lashlee era at Miami.

The Miami Hurricanes defensively did not allow a single touchdown rather the special teams kickoff coverage unit did. #patkeyourbag. In this clip you will see a perfectly timed zone blitz that got them off the field on third down.

Amari Carter came across the field to erase a shallow crosser and the awareness of the line to go by freshman Kamren Kinchens was clutch. The Blue Devil quarterback was lucky he was erratic on the throw because Kinchens was in prime position for the interception. Kinchens jumped the angle route perfectly.

This is the last regular season game and it was a pleasure to breakdown this season with you the SOTU crew. Unless USC comes calling I am going to Lincoln Riley it here for a little while longer. :) Popcorn and Pencils friends. #Gocanes #BANG!!!!
