CBS Sports' Todd Fuhrman has a warning for any potential blue chip quarterback prospects that may be thinking about coming to Miami to play for Mario Cristobal:

Don't.

After Tyler Van Dyke was benched in the Hurricanes embarrassing loss to Middle Tennessee State, the college football analyst took aim at Cristobal's history with QBs on Twitter.

Saying, "If you’re an aspiring [5-star] QB I have absolutely no idea why you’d go play for Mario; QB regression and suppression is his specialty."

Many point to how Cristobal handled former Oregon QB Justin Herbert; whose full potential was unlocked once he reached the NFL.

That said, that didn't stop the Canes from landing Jaden Rashada, a top-three quarterback in the class of 2023.
