Interception Rates (Fun Stat Nerd Tidbit: Miami)

Miami's Jacory Harris was a big play waiting to happen in 2010 -- either he was completing a long pass or throwing an interception. New Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is tasked with getting into Harris' head that checking down to the running back is not the end of the world. If he's successful, then perhaps Harris will rank a little higher on this list. Harris ranked the lowest among prolific BCS quarterbacks last fall.
