CHAPEL HILL, NC – OCTOBER 28: Malik Rosier /

Richt had to bench Rosier just like when a head coach pulls his Ace pitcher after giving up an eight-run first inning. It was like watching that time when former New York Yankee Chuck Knoblauch had the yips and airmailed a throw from second base managing to hit Keith Oberman’s mom in the stands.

But the unequivocal truth here, Richt did the program a favor by quickly announcing Rosier was still his guy. You dance with the one who brought you. Miami is 10-1, Coastal Division Champs, and playing in its first ACC championship game because of Rosier, not in-spite of him.

Rosier is mechanically flawed. He reverts to baseball throwing idiosyncrasies and his feet are all over the place. Rosier is by no shape of the imagination a polished quarterback. But Rosier’s ability to rise above adversity this season has ascended the Canes up the precipice of prominence.

You simply need to come to grips with the fact that quarterbacks like Rosier might not always look like Sunday versions, but they can be captivating entities on Saturdays. Rosier has accomplished what no other quarterback in Miami history has done since joining the ACC.
