Hello party people! Last minute, we went to the game! Best Canes football game I have seen in a LONG time. Saw BK actually run the ball ! Crowd went crazy. Came out throwing not running and never reverted to the conservative plays. Caught up with Ricky and Carlos before the game. All in all a great day!

I was looking at the loses in the top ten and thought that if the canes would have had a perfect record up to this point would have had us at least in the top 5? What might have been.

TruCane81

Ahhh, I couldn't resist.

Just worked to straight 16 hr shifts. Watching the game at 1:00 am on dvr.

I'm only two drives in. Yeah, those two. All I gotta say: DAMN, CMR. WHERE YOU BEEN HIDIN THIS OFFENSE!!!!!!

Mu phukkas been on here talking out the side of the mouth like CMR critics don't know football. You know who you are.

Brad looks like a completely different human being fromthe THREE STEP DROP!

Richt's play calling is simple but creative. Most importantly, unpredictable. Short passes opened long ones. No big runs, but some decent ones to keep them honest.

Brad is getting serious about his footwork. He couldn't run that naked bootleg to the left for shit at g tech. Today, he looked like Tom Brady
running that play.

This is what we been roasting CMR for, because this offense was the all along.

Sad thing is, if he called it like this from fsu game, WE WOULD BE UNDEFEATED, WARTS AND ALL.

Props to CMR and Brad for apparently, leadinv a nice win. Like I said, I'm only two drives in.

TruCane81

Brad is UNSTOPPABLE FRO THE 3 STEP DROP!

WHAT FUK WAS THAT OFF PI CALL? HOW DO YOU GET CALLED FOR PI WHEN GETTING JAMMED? WHEN MIAMI SCORES A TD, THAT'S HOW.

Go Canes!

Given time, Brad Kaaya shows what he can do for Miami

Dave George Palm Beach Post Sports Columnist
7:17 p.m Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016 Sports

Brad Kaaya only got sacked once by Pittsburgh on Saturday. You can probably guess the rest.

Does four touchdown passes sound about right? Well, actually it would have been five if not for a penalty that wiped one out.

And how about a career-high 32 completions? That’s how it works when you give the 6-foot-4 junior time to throw, and all the better when you make time to get Miami’s fleet receivers off and running downfield.

If Kaaya could just FedEx the tape of this 51-28 victory to every NFL scout and get rid of most previous images from 2016, his dream of being a first-round NFL draft pick as early as next spring would be right back on track.

“We had a different philosophy this week,” Kaaya said. “We had to realize that a couple of our quick passes would act as runs, in a sense. It was like a West Coast offense where you just get the ball out fast.”

The West Coast is where Kaaya made his name as a high school prospect, and the way he carved up Pitt’s corners on Saturday it might as well have been one of those 7-on-7 tournaments that he breezed through as a teenager in the Los Angeles area.

Kaaya’s first 13 pass plays were completions, just one off Vinny Testaverde’s school record, and two of them went for touchdowns. Without a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Pitt, that might have been enough to set the Hurricanes homecoming crowd at ease.

Instead coach Mark Richt was stoked for a shootout, calling plays by the handful that would put Kaaya’s deep-ball accuracy to the test. This was fun, and after four consecutive losses, Kaaya must have been wondering if there was going to be much of that left in his Miami career.

My guess is that he’s gone in the upcoming draft, that the NFL’s personnel pros will understand that no quarterback can blossom on a 5-4 team or any other when he’s getting deeply planted (eight sacks by Virginia Tech and five by Notre Dame in recent Miami losses).

They’ll yawn at Kaaya’s excellent stats in this game, for the simple reason that completing 32-of-47 passes for 356 yards is fairly common practice in certain places around America, like the Pac-12 or the Big 12 or any stadium where Pitt (34.4 points allowed per game) shows up.

Then, however, the scouts will sit up and take notice when Kaaya makes a decidedly NFL throw.

They’ll get out the magic marker and make bold and brassy notes about the perfect fade he threw for a 1-yard touchdown to Coley, who was well-covered but available all the same to a precision touch-passer like Kaaya.

And that 38-yard rainbow to Ahmmon Richards, the freshman from Wellington High School? Affix gold stars next to the scouting notes on that one, with a smiley face or two for the way Kaaya dropped the ball so beautifully into the bucket, falling straight down from the sky where only his teammate could catch it, over the shoulders and right on stride.

“It was just a great day, I guess,” said Richards, who’s probably too young to know that there may never be another Hurricanes quarterback with the innate skill to deliver him a miracle like that one. “The coaches were trusting me, and Brad Kaaya, he trusted me, too.”

Richt, who has a long way to go before he can really trust anything about this first-year Miami project, should be able to know what Kaaya is giving him if nothing else. On this hallelujah of a homecoming day, all was finally revealed.

“When people play man coverage, you throw to your first progression,” Richt said in clinical description of what got the ball out of Kaaya’s hand ahead of almost every desperate blitz and stunt. “You don’t have to hold the ball very long. That’s what they (Pitt) do … It’s ‘One, two, three, hitch, fire.” Just about everything we had schemed up and dialed up had a chance for success.”

This is how it was supposed to work between the crafty coach and the elite quarterback, Now that it is, the question is whether it’s too late for Kaaya, No. 3 and closing fast on No. 2 Jacory Harris on Miami’s all-time passing yardage list, to really make the program shine.

Time, either way, to stop talking about losing streaks and focus on what makes Miami attractive to future quarterback recruits.

The schedule syncs up nicely for that. Virginia comes next, another probable victim of Kaaya’s finishing kick.

Go Canes!

/\/\/\/\
Really should have been six TDs but Richards dropped one too.

Go Canes!

Posted by: HAPPY SOUP | November 05, 2016 at 09:47 P

The ONLY negative about a great win is the disappearance (permanently?) of ANGRY SOUP!

The total joy of victory is tempered just a bit by this unforeseen turn of events. I'm torn, definitely don't ever want the Canes to lose but without that we may never see him again.

Man, life ain't easy sometimes....

TruCane81

“We had a different philosophy this week,” Kaaya said. “We had to realize that a couple of our quick passes would act as runs, in a sense. It was like a West Coast offense where you just get the ball out fast.”


But Brad just like to hold the ball, right?

Gotta let your guys do what they do best, what they did that made you sign them.

GC ANGRY SOUP is a double negative....

So assuming Richt stays away from retard mode and continues doing what we've been begging for.. do we want kaaya to stay?

Go Canes!

I never wanted him to leave.

He'll give us the best chance to win, week in and week out, for the rest of this season and next year.

It's CMR's job to put together a game plan that works with his lack of mobility and a sub par offensive line.

The last six quarters he's done a great job doing that and the results have been day and night compared to what he was doing before.

Go Canes!

Kaaya did tuck it and run more Saturday, which helped.

Yes, we saw the guy that was talked about as a first rounder.

We saw just how important coaching and scheme really are.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | November 06, 2016 at 07:24 AM

Nice question Epi...

IF, and that's a BIG IF... Richt keeps his head out of his a$$ and can continue to call the O with some smart and aggressive "quick passing" stuff, I say, "come back Kaaya." How much FUN that style of playcalling must have been for him and the rest of the O yesterday!

But, IF, Richt wants a 1990's ProSet GA Bulldog "run first" Offense, (with NO QB mobility happening), Kaaya should just go. We fans will just turn on him, and he'll get pummeled by opposing D's.

I also think that after his performance yesterday, Kaaya is gone. (Supposedly, there were lots of Pro Scouts in the stands for that game. )

C'mon CMR... keep your foot on the accelerator!

Let's Go CANES!

TruCane81

Someone here said yesterday was all about execution.

They were half right.

Granted, we ran many things yesterday we have failed at executing all year.

The difference is the RHYTHM in which the plays were called, the tempo of the o, and allowing Brad to get COMFORTABLE/CONFIDENT watching receivers catch easy throws.

The scheme got the ball out quick, and we see the results. We left extra blockers in, Brad stayed.

This what happens when you gameplan for who you have.

Running the table no longer sounds like the depraved outburst of a crack fiend on a 3 day bender that just took a long, slow drag off the pipe.

We may actually win a few more games this year.

TruCane81

It took alot of balls for CMR to do what he did yesterday and actually make changes.

He could have easily played the blame the player's game. He took the responsibility for team's success squarely on his own shoulders and made a plan to let them do what they do.

If he will stick to this, he can make us very happy as a coach and give us something worthy of our cheers.

I sure hope he continues to make us eat crow on our criticisms of him.

Hats off to you CMR for an excellent showing.

Damn right, Roach.

BigWindyCane1

The Canes still have a lot to play for. If the Canes win these final three winnable games, This could turn out to be the best season in a decade.

The Canes looked very good, but not great. But you can see the potential for them to play much better. The Canes have a very good chance to finish the regular season on a 4-game winning streak and a solid bowl game - and if they do that, they will finish as a top 25 team, which will be a very successful first season for CMR and his staff. Kaaya and several other teammates will receive individual accolades and the Canes will enter 2017 with a top 10 recruiting class and one of the favorites to win the ACC.

There is still a lot to play for

TruCane81

If it means taking losses, then to hell with Angry Soup.

We just gotta make due with regular Soup and enjoy the wins.

All correct, Windy.

We don't have to be great. Just keep getting better from the top down every week.

CaneRock

I think that INT vs ND might've been the turning point for Kaaya & the O.

Seems like before, He was throwing the ball to a pre-determined spot, resulting in INTs, or the DB making a play on the ball.

Whereas now, He's reading the relationship of the DB to the WR, and throwing the ball AWAY from the DB, but TO the WR.

IOWs, He's making His WRs adjust to Him, instead of vice versa...make them make plays.

TruCane81

Epi, he gotta see what his flexibility did for the team. When he watches the tape, there can't be no going back.

This win was all CMR. This is what leadership and experience can do.

If he can get the run game humming AFTER the quick passing and tempo, then LOOK OUT!

Posted by: roachcane77 | November 06, 2016 at 07:46 AM

I think that the "run first" we've been seeing previously was more kaaya and his checks than Richt.

I hammered coach about it, but then I rewatched some games and I think kaaya was being fooled by the D pre-snap, and also he was gun shy.

The RPO by definition gives kaaya the option to hand off or throw, that's on him. He also was audibling into runs. My gut tells me along w route and protection changes, Richt worked on decision making.

Posted by: TruCane81 | November 06, 2016 at 08:34 AM

I think it's a fallacy to suggest a team needs to run to win games. The rules favor the receiver to such a degree now that a savvy gameplan wins regardless of how the ball is moved. Not to mention that talent in the backfield doesn't have to get the ball on the backfield to make plays.

Obviously running the ball has a lot of benefit, but take what the D gives. Play to your strengths. Get first downs.

It doesn't matter how.

orange 'n green in the vein

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2016 at 09:57 AM

No, one was pulled down and ran off tackle for a three yard slide to the ground last week too so it's been in the gameplan for at least that long unlike how the macjones said it had been specifically coached away from being an option.

By the end of the game the same bad habits for the last month led to the only sack by Pitt's depleted line attempts to rush. So old habits die hard as usual.

Luckily Virginia is putrid in most phases of the game and they don't matchup well with UM, much like UM didn't matchup well with Notre Dame even if Navy didn't mind the individual match-ups themselves too much Saturday.

TruCane81

Now... if we can only find a DC??? LMAO

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2016 at 10:01 AM


The defense will be ok.

All off season long, we said that if the D improved from being the complete disaster it was before, we could lean on the O and have a good season.

They did more than hold up their end ooff the bargain, but O entire O never stepped up, starting with CMR.

We just have to grind on in the face of the lack of depth, experience, and the injury bug. They have to play more disciplined on their assignments, but to be fair, they have played some crafty offenses.

We just need CMR to keep the ball rolling and double down on what is working for us.

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2016 at 10:06 AM

If Brad stays and gets outplayed, well, that's the nature of competition. He can try to take the Tom Brady route to the league.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | November 06, 2016 at 10:47 AM

Damn, right, Epi.

Being the old school guy I am, I can never say the importance of the run is a fallacy.

But what will you do if the front seven is a bunch of dogs that won't give up an inch?

You adjust and use their aggression against them.

The short pass will open up the run eventually.
Just don't abandon either. Keep the defense of balance.

Question...presuming Kayaa returns, will next year's wide receiver corps be collectively stronger or weaker next season?

2016: Stacey Coley (Sr), Malcolm Lewis (Sr), Braxton Berrios (Jr), Dayall Harris (So), Ahmmon Richards (Fr), Dionte Mullins (Fr)

2017: Braxton Berros (Sr), Dayall Harris (Jr), Lawrence Cager (So), Ahmmon Richards (So), Dionte Mullins (So), potential freshmen

TruCane81

Good observation, CR.

If we keep him clean and doing west concepts that made him a four star recruit, he will get even more confident and hit more off those deep ball attempts.

If that happens, uh oh for the rest of cfb.

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2016 at 11:16 AM

Brad gives us the best chance to win IF you gameplan around his strengths.

If the young guys can't beat him out, no biggy.
Just let them develop good habits with no pressure on them.

If it's close, I would go with experience to win now and get more top prospects interested.

Others would want to see a young guy take his lumps.

I don't agree with this unless you really think you got the next Jameis or Johnny Football.

Throwing Brad to the wolves is maybe the biggest reason for his bad habits now. Don't repeat past sins.

WWIN

Posted by: TonyCane | November 06, 2016 at 11:19 AM

I think it'll be the same or better. The only real loss is Coley... and one could argue that Richards is just as good as him as a freshman without the penalties... then if Holloman can come in and duplicate what Richards is doing now... with the possibility of adding another freshman... plus Mullins should be ready this year

**The legitimacy of nationally ranked receiver Jeremiah Holloman�s interest in Miami has been more than confirmed this weekend.

Deejay Dallas warned Canes fans earlier this week on the CanesInSight podcast that Holloman was being real with about Miami�s chances of landing him. The 6-2, 190-pound 4-star receiver arrived in Miami on Friday with both of his parents, was another signal of where the Canes stand with Holloman. Sources say that Holloman�s parents were extremely engaged in the game, cheering on the Hurricanes. It doesn�t hurt that true freshman receiver Ahmmon Richards had 8 receptions for 144 yards.

After the game, people who had been with Holloman during his visit said that he even considered making his decision this weekend and they would be surprised if he was not a Cane by the time he enrolls at a school in January.

My prediction is Miami.

**Tight ends coach Todd Hartley is aggressively working to flip his second commitment of this cycle. Hartley was the primary recruiter of linebacker commit Bradley Jennings, Jr. who made the switch from FSU. Now Hartley is looking to add the 2nd TE commit of the class in Oregon pledge Tre McKitty.

McKitty was on campus on Friday with IMG, marking his 2nd trip to campus in the last month. McKitty took his official visit in October. He was not at the game yesterday as reported elsewhere. He is an early enrollee and right now I have him pegged as a flip to the Canes. Brian Polendey, Miami's current TE commit, was in town this weekend for his official visit as well. Hartley said this week with a smile that there was definitely room for another tight end in the recruiting cycle. Polendey has told me before that he had no problem welcoming another player at his position either.


**There are no concerns from Miami's end on the commitment level of Navaughn Donaldson, who was at the game against Pittsburgh yesterday. Donaldson said yesterday that he will visit Florida next week, FSU on the 26th, UNC on December 1st, and then the Canes will get his final official before he enrolls in January.

Donaldson has been up front with the Miami staff for a long time that he planned on taking visits, but he has indicated that he is solid with the Canes. As I've said countless times, Donaldson is a starter at Miami from the moment he steps on campus.

**Miami commit Deejay Dallas thinks of himself as a trendsetter and this move certainly classifies as trendsetting. Dallas told me he plans on majoring in Real Estate at the University of Miami. School reps confirmed that if Dallas follows through with his plans, he would be the first football player to ever major in Real Estate, which is a relatively new program.

The program began four years ago at Miami, and just last fall it became a designated major under the finance department with its own set of classes.

Dallas officially visited Miami this weekend and a lot of credit would go his way if the Canes can land Holloman

**Offensive line commits Zach Dykstra and Zalon�tae Hillery were also on their official visits this weekend. I will have full updates with them this week.

Bad as this season has been, any of the remaining games can be the start of us turning the ship. Hopefully we can close out strong 4-0, get to a bowl, and use those EXTRA PRACTICES! So just imagine that the season starts this weekend and we're 0-0 with 4 games to play.

On a positive note...

The offense seemed like it started to turn the corner and figure things out the second half... O-line even started blocking better...Kaaya even had that look in his eyes...I thought this looked like it might be the turning point of the season...maybe it was?

I'm interested to see if the offense will pick back up where it left off the second or go back to the last four games???

Yep!

For your eyes only, Ohio Cane.

I told U to bet the bank account on mighty Ohio St.! LMFAO

And like I said. Mighty Ohio St. would not only COVER the point spread handily. Ohio St. would BYTCH SLAP that Herbie Cornhusker team back to small town capital town stinkin' Lincoln!!

Buckeyes 62

Nebraska 3

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!

A royal arse BYTCH SLAPPING is what happens to Nebraska. When the Big Ten SETS UP the early portion of Nebraska's conference schedule with a CREAM PUFF array of teams. Heck, even Oregon has a losing record. And that was Nebraska's only difficult non-conference game ( At home ). Go figure.

Oh, and one more point. ESPN'S BPI had your Hurricanes ranked AHEAD of that Herbie Cornhusker team ( 7-1 ) entering this past weekend.

No. 25 Miami

No. 28 Herbie Cornhusker's

TheeMackJones

OhioCane's. I'd wager some SERIOUS money on your Canes pronto. While the point spread is - 12 1/2. Because my insider source ( The dude had some SERIOUS dollars on the Buckeyes last night. ) says that MAJOR ACTION will be wagered on the Canes. Which will drive up the point spread by Thursday and on to game day.

In other words, I SENSE another Cane THREE TOUCHDOWNS, or more, victory against Virginia!

The three-step drop and shotgun HELPED the offensive line yesterday. Miami also had a seven man UMBRELLA protecting skinny hoe handle hips yesterday. LOL

The bottom line: I don't believe Richt will revert back to the previous offensive techniques. In other words, yesterday's offense was akin to last year's offense in all facets.

Not surprising, everybody love them some SOUP!

When he graduates after wining 58 Straight I'll be his mentor. We can see houses to NFL players one day. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Carter is average at best, not a difference maker. Diaz smoke and mirror show this year is one of the better ones I've ever watched, too bad it was wasted on bad QB play when the chips were down.

"Posted by: The Dude (Casual Fan) | November 06, 2016 at 12:30 PM"

No, they can go green once a year at home. Throw in twice a year in the chrome helmets at home and in the big road game or on a Thursday national game or bowl finale and that's enough of that gimmick shat. The helmet stickers are better as an addition than the tiger walk ripoff. As if Smart Mark being better than the fatso loser he replaced in every category was ever in doubt, but that's still another point in his favor.

They are the worst FBS team from any of the former auto qualifier BCS leagues or teams UM will play this year. Edging out Duke for the worst spot.

This game was in the winnable road game category even when the losing streak was running last month, no way it's moved out of there now, UVA will be playing spoiler so they don't have much to play for on that front while UM can go toilet bowling so advantage UVA in motivation. If the election concession doesn't come in Tuesday night though who knows whose attention will really be where so here's looking at an early call and our constitutional peaceful transition of power.

CIS:

Takes From Yesterday's Game (semi-long)
It was refreshing to see us put up 50+ and end that miserable 4 game losing streak.

Some quick hitters I noticed:

-If Richt called games like this all year, we could be 8-1 if not 9-0. Glad he allowed Kaaya to rip it

-Kaaya did very well...including running from time to time. Was impressed w a bounce back performance after being sauteed by 98% of us.

-AR is the future, period

-Walton showed a lot of want...just need him to continue to improve his vision and feet. The feet are getting a tad bit better

-Appreciated the OL adjustments.

-This team still lacks discipline and I'm hoping that's fixed next year. Drop balls, late hits...enough is enough

-No more Gus Edwards talk, OK? Like ever

-Can't wait until Carter is gone. Literally saw him run away from a tackle, poor angles, and his hips are stiffer than anyone I know 6ft under.

All in all, I'm glad the adjustments were made. Let's b real, our record is our record but we have beat ourselves in 3 of the 4 games we lost.

I've been critical of the staff and some of the players, but we have some freshmen who are really talented. We need to improve speed overall, we need that Miami speed again, but seeing class of 16 leading the way, I truly believe the future is bright.

Wanna see us finish strong w a bowl victory, even if it's the Carmex Lip Gloss bowl. We need momentum heading into an important recruiting season.
