News: MIami (OH) quarterback Zac Dysert was again a one man wrecking crew against Temple, throwing for 365 yards and three touchdowns at Temple.
Analysis: His main man, wide receiver Nick Harwell, hauled in 15 catches for 229 yards and two scores. The rest of the RedHawks managed a total of 215 offensive yards, which makes it pretty obvious what is coming at opponents. Dysert went over 300 yards for the fifth time this season, while Harwell has topped the century mark in seven of his nine outings. Expect at least this kind of production next week against Western Michigan.
News: Miami (OH) quarterback Zac Dysert threw for 215 yards and two touchdowns in a blowout win over Akron. He added 32 yards on the ground and another score.
Analysis: Yes, the Zips get credit for holding Dysert to just 215 yards - because they might be the worst offensive team in America! Dysert saw a season-low in attempts as the game got ugly quickly. The good news here is he managed positive rushing yards for the second straight week, and mixed in with a 100 yard rusher (Justin Semmes) could this line finally be coming together?
News: According to head coach Don Treadwell, Miami (OH) will continue rotating running backs against Akron, waiting for a hot hand to emerge.
Analysis: Last week's answer was Tyrone Jones (15-58-1), but Treadwell indicated Jones isn't big enough to shoulder the load alone. Sacks aren't the only reason the RedHawks rank dead last in the NCAA in rushing. Look for another huge performance from quarterback Zac Dysert tonight against Akron, and if you are considering a running back here, let us know and we'll recommend some professional help.
News: Miami (OH) quarterback Zac Dysert tossed for 313 yards and five touchdowns in a route of Buffalo.
Analysis: Dysert's rushing yards are down considerably, thanks to the ridiculous number of sacks he's taken, but he's now tossed 12 touchdowns in his last four games after just two in his first four. With Akron, Western Michigan and Ohio still on the docket, Dysert should finish 2011 with a bang.
News: Miami (OH) wide receiver Nick Harwell had three catches for just one yard against Akron, while also fumbling once.
Analysis: Simply ugly. The entire game was ugly, and Harwell and quarterback Zac Dysert never got things cranked up. It won't get easier for these two, as Toledo comes calling next week. But you still have to think a rebound performance is in order.
News: Miami (OH) has named Zac Dysert its starting quarterback for the season opener at Missouri.
Analysis: Dysert beat out Austin Boucher during the first few days of camp. Not that this is surprising news, but it's nice to feel secure in drafting Dysert nonetheless. We had Dysert pegged for a breakout in 2010, and he was well on his way before injuries cut the season short. If he stays healthy, he can be a top 20 quarterback nationally.
News: While both Miami quarterbacks shared time with the first unit, Zac Dysert was better statistically than Austin Boucher, finishing 8-of-18 for 83 yards.
Analysis: Boucher was 6-of-11, for just 25 yards. Neither quarterback was intercepted. Similar to their MAC colleagues in upstate New York, the RedHawks emphasized the run in this weekend's scrimmage. We still fully expect Dysert to secure the job before Week 1, and put up some pretty enticing numbers in the right matchup.
News: Miami (OH) is taking a look at as many as ten different running backs this fall. Getting the most reps currently are former linebacker Erik Finklea and converted fullback Justin Semmes.
Analysis: It's an interesting conundrum head coach Don Treadwell finds himself in. The Redhawks are expected to compete for a conference title, and their backfield returns a total of 90 career rushing yards. The winner of the Zac Dysert/Austin Boucher battle looks like a one man wrecking crew right now, but if a true back can emerge, he'll see his fair share of scoring chances. Semmes has me intrigued as a touchdown vulture. He's worth adding to your watch list for a little while.
News: Dysert has sore ribs and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Akron, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Dysert's status will be determined at game-time. If he plays, he should put up decent numbers against an Akron team that is 107th in the nation in defense.
News: Dysert completed 19-of-25 passes for 221 yards and a touchdown against Bowling Green Wednesday while running for 20 yards and a touchdown.

News: Dysert completed 29-of-47 passes for 399 yards and three touchdowns against Central Michigan Saturday.
Analysis: We'd imagine he won't do as well against Ohio, but his MAC-only league owners probably don't have a better option.
News: Dysert completed 31-of-46 passes for 294 yards and a touchdown against Kent State Saturday.
Analysis: Dysert hasn't progressed much since his freshman year, so he's not a great option in any given week. His next game, against Cincinnati, doesn't look particularly appealing, but it could be worse.
News: Dysert completed 18-of-22 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns against Colorado State Saturday.

News: Dysert completed 16-of-25 passes for 164 yards, one touchdown and an interception while running for 43 yards against Eastern Michigan Saturday.

News: Dysert completed 25-of-44 passes for 191 yards and four interceptions against Florida Saturday.
Analysis: Dysert's worst days are officially behind him now. He has good value in MAC-only leagues as he takes on Eastern Michigan in his next game.

News: Dyster completed 23-of-25 passing for 137 yards and a touchdown Saturday as Miami (OH) played its annual Red and White Spring Game, MACReportOnline.com reports.
Analysis: Dysert said following his performance Saturday, "It's a lot better with that [year in the] offense under your belt." Look for improved play from Dysert in 2010, especially if the offensive line, which allowed a league-worse 38 sacks for 258 yards in 2009, can offer better protection in the pocket.
News: Dysert completed 24-of-37 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown and one interception against Buffalo Wednesday.
Analysis: Dysert finished his redshirt freshman season with acceptable fantasy numbers, but his interception-to-touchdown ratio (4:3) will need to improve. Dysert was a fairly high recruit, so he has the physical ability to do much better in 2010.
