That led to a lot of indecisiveness by Richt at quarterback against Duke. Perry continued to struggle with accuracy issues in last week’s loss to Duke. He finished 5-16 for 35 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions against the Blue Devils.

Perry almost led the Canes on a game-tying drive in the final minute. An offensive pass interference penalty called against Cager prevented UM’s chance to tie the game with a two-point conversion.

Leading the Canes down the field for the potential tying touchdown was impressive, but Perry was also just 2-6 on the drive and took two sacks. Some followers of Miami Hurricanes football have blamed the play calling and others have blamed the protection.

There are many reasons why the Miami offense has been putrid over the last three games, but the lack of accuracy from both Rosier and Perry has been troubling. Rosier is in the final three to four games of his college career.

It makes sense to play Perry at this point. If he can’t improve his accuracy Jarren Williams and to a far lesser extent, Cade Weldon will challenge to be the starting quarterback in 2019. There is also the possibility of the Hurricanes signing a graduate transfer quarterback for next season.
