3 of 4

In spite of struggling with his accuracy, Rosier led the Hurricanes on two fourth-quarter scoring drives in the last six minutes to give Miami the lead. Some speculation after the Miami Hurricanes trip to Chapel Hill is that he might have broken his collarbone.

"Susan Miller Degnan of the Miami Herald reported that Rosier said after the UNC game “he spent much of the rest of the season getting multiple daily treatments. Coaches told him to tough it out…Rosier told reporters.” “They wanted to make sure I didn’t break anything or break a collarbone…I was going to have to suck it up and play or I was going to have to just give the job up,’’ Rosier said. “And I’m not ready to give the job up.’’"

In the second half of the season, Rosier’s threshold that be held up in the first half of the season did a reversal. The only game Rosier was over the 57.7 percent completion rate that was his second lowest of the first half of the season in the second half was the victory over Notre Dame. There were other issues that contributed to the Hurricanes losses to end the season.
