Five topics to expect for Miami Football at 2019 ACC Kickoff


A year ago the Miami football program was coming off a 10-3 season, ACC Coastal Division title and Mark Richt, Ahmmon Richards and Jaquan Johnson were the Hurricanes representatives at ACC Kickoff days. What a difference a year makes.

Mark Richt retired after the Miami football program turned to a three-game losing streak to end 2017 into a 7-6 season. Jaquan Johnson graduated after leading the Hurricanes in tackles as a junior and senior in 2017 and 2018 and Ahmmon Richards had to withdraw from football because of a neck injury.

Manny Diaz has replaced Richt as head coach, moving up from defensive coordinator following a 17-day stint at the head coach at Temple. K.J. Osborn is a graduate transfer wide receiver representing the Miami offense in Charlotte. A year ago Osborn was playing for Buffalo.

Four-year starting linebacker Shaq Quarterman is representing the defense. Quarterman is the perfect spokesperson for the Miami defense. Quarterman has started all of his games with the Hurricanes during his career. He has been named All-ACC in Miami.

Quarterman has gone from third to second to first-team All-ACC. He should finally challenge to earn All-American honors this season. Quarterman has been second in Miami in tackles in each of his three seasons with the Hurricanes.

Osborn was a questionable choice to represent the Miami offense. It could have been a strategic decision. The Hurricanes offense was abysmal last season. Osborn was in Buffalo during the ineptness of that offense. Osborn will not be able to speak much of the experience that went wrong with the Miami offense in 2018.

The more sensible choice to represent the Miami offense in Charlotte would have been junior running back DeeJay Dallas. Dallas was Miami's second-leading rusher in 2018. Hurricanes projects starting with Hurricanes starting running back. Travis Homer in 2019.
