Mario Cristobal was critical of the way Miami’s wide receivers played against Texas A&M on Saturday night.

Miami’s wide receivers struggled and the offense suffered as a result. 8 different players caught passes for the Hurricanes. Miami finished the game with 217 receiving yards. The receiving yards could have been increased if the mistakes from the receivers were limited.

Cristobal talked about the dropped passes that cost the offense scoring opportunities.

“We had 6 or 7 drops. It wasn’t all the wide receivers,” Cristobal said.

He was pleased with quarterback Tyler Van Dyke’s adjustment to the new offense. Miami will put an emphasis on supporting Van Dyke.

“I think he’s done pretty well,” Cristobal said. “We have to do a better job as players and as coaches to make sure the quarterback is successful.”

Cristobal wanted to see improvement from the entire group of wide receivers. The best wide receivers will play, but Miami is still trying to see who belongs on the field.

“I like having the best guys on the field…we’re not there yet,” Cristobal said. “We need to improve there. We need to improve there quickly.”

Wide receiver Brashard Smith dropped a pass in the 4th quarter, which turned out to be a costly mistake. Cristobal wanted Smith to move on from the drop.

“It’s real simple: You’ve got to get over it,” Cristobal said. “I’m not mad at him. I’m disappointed for him.”

Will Mallory led the Hurricanes in catches and receiving yards with 6 catches for 56 yards. Miami did not record a receiving touchdown against Texas A&M.

Miami hosts Middle Tennessee on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
