Harris and Pryor embracing chance to match skills
Their favorite discussion topic?
There’s no way that would be possible this week.
Potentially Heisman-contending quarterbacks _ and more importantly, potentially championship-contending teams _ will meet in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, Harris leading No. 12 Miami (1-0) into a stadium filled with 105,000 or so fans, most of whom who will be there to root on Pryor and No. 2 Ohio State (1-0).
“We talked earlier this week,” Pryor said. “We just said, `Stay injury-free, have a good game and let’s make this game go down in history.’ We don’t have too many words for each other. We’re just trying to come out and get a win for our team.”
Comparisons of the two starting quarterbacks are inevitable this week, considering they’ve been getting made for years anyway.
The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Pryor is two inches taller and 40 pounds heavier, yet there’s plenty of statistical similarities. Both have played 27 games. Pryor has combined to run and pass for 5,079 yards and 46 touchdowns, while Harris _ more of a thrower, not so much of a runner _ has 4,636 yards and 42 touchdowns.
“I told him I owe him a show,” said Pryor, who’s urging Ohio State fans not to boo James _ who scorned Cleveland to join Miami this summer _ if he shows up on Saturday and calls the two-time NBA MVP his mentor. “Next time he comes, I told him I have to give him a show, because we lost the last time he came to Penn State, 13-6.”
Given that, maybe having James there would be good luck for Miami, even though he predicts an Ohio State win.
Even if James is there, most eyes will be on the quarterbacks.
And that speaks volumes about how vital they will be on Saturday.
