Miami Star Transferring After Embarrassing Bowl Loss?
Is a Miami star transferring after the embarrassing bowl loss?
Fallout continues from the Hurricanes’ humiliating effort on Thursday night against Louisiana Tech.
Miami entered the Independence Bowl as seven-point favorites and ultimately ended up getting blown out 14-0.
After the game, quarterback Jarren Williams told Don Bailey Jr. on WQAM what most people could see just watching the game: the team was unenthused about the game.

“We were going through the motions,” he admitted.
Williams went 9-of-20 for 94 yards and a pick before eventually getting benched.
In the immediate aftermath of the lopsided defeat, rumors began to circulate that Miami would not mind terribly if Williams transferred elsewhere.
Williams won the starting job as a true freshman, but underwhelmed for much of the season. He finished 2019 with 19 touchdowns and seven picks on the year.
Miami came into the season with a ton of hype. While nobody was picking the ‘Canes over Clemson in the ACC, there was a general consensus that the team was talented enough to at least challenge the Tigers to some degree.
Instead, Virginia ultimately ended up having the sort of season a lot of people thought Miami would have.
It remains to be seen if Williams really will transfer. Generally speaking, though, when the administration makes it publicly known that they don’t back you, it is time to go elsewhere.
