08:23 AM ET 11.16 | Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch held up his end of the promise, letting freshman running back Duke Johnson throw what turned out to be an 8-yard touchdown to Allen Hurns last week at Virginia. "I told the whole offense the first time 'we get inside the 10-yard line we're calling this play.' And when we got to the 10-yard line, I didn't want to be a liar," Fisch said. ... Fisch's faith in Johnson is strong, but so is his belief in trick plays -- especially of late. In UM's past three games, Fisch has called on three non-quarterbacks -- Johnson, receiver Phillip Dorsett and third-string running back Dallas Crawford -- to throw four combined passes on trick plays. So far, there haven't been any disasters.

Miami is banged up. If trickery is what they've got through the end of the season, so be it.

Trick plays have their place in the game. Fun for the kids in practice, entertaining to the fans, and if you have a good selection of them, something to slow the defense down.

Not so much fun for the other teams' fans when it works. Thanks for reminding me of the good times. :-)
