Based on what?

Posted by: Go Canes! | August 16, 2017 at 09:15 AM

The total lack of ANY excitement about the qb position.

Its Nkosi or bust in just about everyone's mind.

Like I said, I have not heard a SINGLE complement on any of our qbs THROWING ability except for the guy who just got on campus.

Richt likes to throw outside and deep. Thats not the skill set of our upperclassman.

We should be hearing more about explosive plays in the short game with our speed upgrades.

Instead we hear things suggesting mediocre qb play.

Remember last year? Turnovers should be the only reason our qbs struggle. Everything else should be pitch and catch to our skill guys, cause we dont have Matthew Stafford( Richt wants a mobile guy like this).

There are oc's out there that can make THIS group of guys really good, really fast.

Based on his track record and what we have heard
this off season, I'm just not sure Richt is one of those guys.

But hey I will accept whatever comes as long as he learned from the losing streak and calls games more like the end of the season.

TruCane81

All we need is some Alex Smith style okey doke vanilla game management and we are an 11 win minimum team.

The great Wall of Miami will be the key to kicking that Seminole Azz.

Walk-on quarterback from Long Island was taking snaps with first team me is now a contender

Posted by: Crayon Cabe | August 16, 2017 at 12:41 PM

That story is bogus! First off the walk on was from Vermont and has a cannon for an arm and was running the second team. What I also heard from my sources was that they are looking at a bag boy that Richt met at Publix or are just going to run wildcat 90% of the time with Dee Jay Dallas at QB.

Maybe it's one green and three not so good QBs facing a defensive roster with 20 future NFL players on it?

Not being sarcastic, mean that as an honest question.

Crayon Cabe

Sorry. Edmonton not Long Island. He was taking snaps with first team and looks the best out of anyone

Crayon Cabe

*Vermont

UMike

One of these QB's needs to step up and get the ball to the play makers and avoid turnovers. I'm not excited about position but we have talent around them. I think a big wildcard is Home...we need him to step up and I think he will.

The Stav

DB Teddy Stavetski is being looked at as a QB. He is from New Jersey and has been looking great. They are trying out a lot of new quarterbacks this week. Not sure if Teddy is a walk on

All faith in Rosier

It's definitely between Rosier and Stavetski at this point. After that big drop off to Shirreffs. As far as the freshmen go, Augie Debaise has outplayed N'Kossi. And so has the Vermont kid

All faith in Rosier

FYI Stavetski didn't play QB in high school. He was a receiver. Scary

SOUP

BREAKING NEWS...UM is trying out a baseball pitcher, a javelin/shot put thrower and even a women's volleyball player at QB. All are running with the first team and could be named the starter by Friday. Combined they have thrown for 7 TDs and no INTs in practice today.

#WeGood

All faith in Rosier

SOUP,

LOL

All faith in Rosier

Honestly, don't understand why there isn't more support for Rosier. He has clearly won the battle and has playing and starting experience

UMike

I would be a lot more comfortable with Rosier then Sherriffs...just don't think Rosier is a 9-10 win QB

Posted by: Go Canes! | August 16, 2017 at 02:30 PM


You took the words out my mouth, Go. This was my next point.

I was gonna say maybe Im just being guarded after so many hopeful offseasons.

The D is usually ahead in the offseason AND we have one of the nations best units. Tough sledding for any first team o but especially break8ng in a new qb.

I was just hoping hear that we were developing an identity in the passing game. We don't need Manziel or Winston for a good season.

Complete 60% and keep turnovers around 10 or lower and we DOMINATE everyone but fsu.

I think we can dominate them too cause Im not sold on their dc and they dont have Dalvin to save them. Francios is good. We gotta hit that fool.

TruCane81

Homer reminds me of Robert Smith.

Upright style, much stronger than he looks, and ends up running away from the d looking like a 4.8 guy.

That smooth long stride looks slow but he out ran some of the best defenders in Florida.

My prediction is he hits some serious home runs and blows up as a fan fave behind Mark.

Just secure the ball!

TruCane81

What is Rosier's problem?

Is Is he the starter and Richt is doing a motivation game?

Is it poise, accuracy, leadership, no command of playbook? Really what is it? I still cant get over how he played better than expected on the national stage in a tough situation.

Thought that would count for something. Guess not.

All faith in Rosier

Tru,

I think Rosier does not have superstar potential but I do think he can lead a team to a national title. Championship teams do not need superstar quarterbacks. They need someone to lead them to the end zone and not make mistakes

WWIN

Most people don't like Rosier and Sherriffs because of what they did in high school

UMike

Or maybe because that have done zero on college? Lol

WWIN

Rosier started one game on the road as a freshman won and played well!

Let's not act like Kaaya was all-world last year lol

The ONE and ONLY time fans saw Rosier he played well... everything else is he say she say

Terrance Sullivan

Yes WWIN if 3560 yards 27 Touchdowns and 7INT's that BK had last year was just putrid. Thanks for setting me and anyone with a IQ higher than salad dressing straight Brotha.

C mon TS. He aint say Brad was terrible.

Come on my Arse. I stand by my statement.

Go Canes!

Posted by: WWIN | August 16, 2017 at 06:07 PM

Silly talk.

He's obviously done nothing to separate himself so far and never once threatened Kaaya for a starting position.

REPORT: Miami Hurricanes and Alabama Crimson Tide in negotiations for 2021 season-opener

Terrance Sullivan

I believe The Combination of Malik, Evan, N'kosi, Cade can help lead us to Great heights. I am just beyond annoyed at the constant swipes at BK like he was a bum on here and other avenues on social media. I am thankful that he more than panned out for us because if he hadn't oh boy. But as we have a deeper better overall team with better coaching hoping we stay relatively healthy we can have the best season we have had since we left the Big East in 2003. This is our 14th season in the ACC time for us to at least win ACC Coastal, Win 10 Games, and Win Bowl Game, and Finish in the Top 10.

Go Canes!

I just got a chubby /\/\/\

HillViewCane

1) Who was the last bad Miami starting quarterback?

2) Who was the last below average Miami starting QB?

Honestly I think whoever wins the starting job will be fine with better o-line play and OC play-calling.

who will be QB?

If Stavetski can get the ball in the hands of our playmakers, then start him. I don't care that he didnt play QB in high school

Dude

Come on my Arse. I stand by my statement.

WWIN

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan |ย August 16, 2017 at 06:21 PM

Yeah that's why NFL scouts were drooling over him right... and why Richt was BEGGING him NOT to leave??? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Stats can be VERY DECEIVING!

Terrance Sullivan

If Richt was so happy for him to leave he wouldn't be still deliberating who the QB would be he wasn't I don't recall him doing that last year but OK play that crazy game I'm your mind and others that feel that way can play that game in their mind the rest of us are laughing at that game of mental gymnastics. Stats are Stats and they speak for themselves.I stick to facts. I don't do Alternative Facts lol.

WWIN

Posted by: Go Canes! |ย August 16, 2017 at 07:47 PM

Do you really think that Richt was going to come in and bench the GOLDEN boy (pun intended) in his first year??? Positions are OPINION based... meaning you and I might be at practice watching and you might think Harley looks better and I might think Thomas looks better... so if Harley starts over Thomas that DOES NOT prove for a FACT that Harley is better. You do know that coaches are NOT 100% correct right?

Ask yourself this? Did CMR really want Kaaya back? Do you think he was recruiting Kaaya back???

WWIN

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan |ย August 16, 2017 at 11:16 PM

First of all this post is real simple... Just answer this question please... Do you think CMR was recruiting Kaaya to come back???

1. Just because CMR hasn't named a starter PUBLICLY DOES NOT mean he doesn't know who the starter is.
2. How do you know he's not comfortable with all 4 QB's to start? He might be like me... and think anybody will be just as good as Kaaya! Lol
3. Is it wise to name a starter right now?
4. Will it give us an advantage over our opponents?

Stats are VERY DECEIVING!!! Kaaya throws a 2yd pass to Richard's... he takes it 90yds to da house... Kaaya gets credited for 90yds and a TD. So someone looking at the stats could say Kaaya must have thrown a bomb to AT! So you wouldn't know unless you were actually WATCHING! #StayWoke

Dude

True WW,

Stats can be decieving, but its not really what you described. Its more 2 straight average to poor performances followed by straight dominance for 3 games. The kid was streaky. But it seemed towards the end, he was really becoming an outstanding QB. I wish he came back, no questiom that we'd win the Coastal with games to spare.

Terrance Sullivan

So how does Ahmon Richards have 925 receiving yards and broke Michael Irvin freshman record if his stats and he doesn't get credit lol. But keep on playing mental gymnastics brother and thanks for the laughs.

Terrance Sullivan

So Richards, N'Jokou, Coley just magically had those receiving yards and touchdowns, A QB named the Zodiac threw it to them. These Mental Gymnastics is too funny brother. I owe you a 6 Pack of Sam Adams Boston Lager. Thanks for the laughs.

WWIN

Remember when you laughed last year... then Brad got drafted in the 6th round where he magically received another GOLDEN opportunity and you had to come back and apologize? Good times ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

WWIN

If only those NFL experts would have ONLY looked at the stats like you instead of what their OWN EYES were telling watching film he would have been a first round pick! Damn those game tapes!

You just WITNESSED being wrong about this... yet you still don't see it! SMH

Terrance Sullivan

Nice and I see you didn't answer my question. Nice job. At least I can apologize when I was wrong something you seem incapable of. Sad.

WWIN

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan |ย August 16, 2017 at 11:55 PM

You missed the point! The point was... Kaaya gets credit for the 90yds AND AR gets credit for 90yds... difference being Kaaya didn't EARN credit for it, he ONLY threw it 2yds... AR did ALL THE WORK!

WWIN

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan |ย August 17, 2017 at 12:30 AM

What question... I'll gladly answer any question? You never answered mine!

When was I WRONG about this? Take off your orange and green shades and you would see that Kaaya was a AVERAGE QB!

WWIN

Posted by: Dude |ย August 16, 2017 at 11:48 PM

He played bad vs FAMU and FAU to start this season... TWO CUPCAKES!!! FAMU and FAU!

We'll still when the coastal with games to spare! Just think if we had just a LITTLE QB mobility last year ๐Ÿค”

Dude

Mobility wasnt the issue, if anything mobility would have been worse. Mobility turns a 4 yard sack into an 8 yard sack. Miami's biggest issue in 2016 was the OC.

WWIN

^^^^^^^
Never heard of that before... new one on me!

thirstybuzzardcane

This is why A perfect example of Tebows career! I always thought the guy was trash. When you have Harvin and Hernandez of course your going to have good stats.

thirstybuzzardcane

The NFL exposed how bad Tebow really was!

thirstybuzzardcane

If Kaaya had mobility, we only lose 1 game last year!

thirstybuzzardcane

That loss is VT by the way

Terrance Sullivan

Lol WWIN you made my point again yes he played bad against FAMU and FAU I think only had like 4 touchdowns. So he had 23 touchdowns against better competition. Thank you.

Terrance Sullivan

BK through first two games against FAMU and FAU he had roughly 300 yards passing with 4 TD's and 2 INT's awful. Remaining 11 Games over 3,200 yards and 23 TD's and 5 INT's against better competition any more questions lol.

canezilla

OMG...IS THE GREEN LOT OPEN YET?

WWIN

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan |ย August 17, 2017 at 01:28 AM

Lol! I just listed the first two games because they were CUPCAKES and a junior QB who's supposed to be a 1st round pick... SHOULD NOT SUCK VS FAMU and FAU... true or false?

I could list more games... let's talk about his FINAL game here when he had a MONTH to prepare for! He threw a pass so bad that everyone thought it was deflected lol! His grade for that game was ranked like 6th or 7th on the team!

NOT ONCE in his whole time here did I feel like he could ever lead us to a comeback victory!

WWIN

According to you and his "STATS" he should have been a first round pick right???

Why was he drafted in the SIXTH ROUND??? And if Golden wasn't with the Lions he might have not been selected then!

Apparently those NFL EXPERTS feel the same way I do right? But keep talking yourself into believing whatever you want to believe if that makes you feel good! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

U KNOW IT!!!

Go Canes!

Dorsey went in the 7th round, Morris went undrafted.

Does that mean they weren't any good here either?'

Your argument is nonsense.

Kaaya played at an elite level going down the stretch last year and was the biggest reason we ended the way we did. Where he got drafted after that is irrelevant.

WWIN

Dorsey had NFL talent all around him! Morris had 1-2 good years here.

If a player is REALLY good based on what he did in college he'll get drafted in the 1st-3rd rounds of the draft. I STAND behind that!

Non Miami fans that Kaaya was garbage. Just one instance I was watching the game over my parents his and my moms said "y'all need another QB is he all y'all got?" I said "they have him going in the first round of the draft"... then my pops turned and looked at me and said "who said that, they couldn't have been talking about him?" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Who is the kid that nobody knows getting first team QB reps this week???

Kaaya was terrible under pressure.....just my opinion though.

HillViewCane

If you think Kaaya was garbage then yoi can't be reasoned with. He was Above average at his absolute worst.

WWIN

^^^^^^
Tell that to the NFL experts because apparently they didn't think too highly of him. A PUNTER was drafted before him and he was coincidentally drafted by a team that his ex head coach is employed by... but carry on sir!

Damn right.

If Brad came back and Richt expanded everything we did well last year and cut out the bullshit, we would be undefeated Acc champs going to the playoffs.

This is undeniable.

We still have a grand opportunity to ride our defense and speed to new heights.

Just call competent games coach and play the guy who protects the ball.

D will be SPECIAL.

I am calling 7 defensive touchdowns.

Just protect the ball and use the ENTIRE field.

TruCane81

Mobility wasnt the issue, if anything mobility would have been worse. Mobility turns a 4 yard sack into an 8 yard sack. Miami's biggest issue in 2016 was the OC.

Anyone watch Hardknocks? Can't believe Tampa traded up to the second round to get Aguayo and release him 1 year later. Probably one of the Top 10 bone headed moves in football!

BigWindyCane1

This line from the Herald article says a lot: D-line coach Craig Kuligowski, on signing day in February, said this about Ford:

โ€œJonathan has gained 50 pounds in a year. He has great length and is extremely physical. He was the best defensive tackle we saw live in action during the recruiting process. His upside is through the roof.โ€™โ€™

I trust Coach Kul's opinion. I saw Ford play in HS, and thought he was very, very good and I was happy to hear that he was coming to the U. I was surprised he was a three star prospect, because I have seen four star defensive line prospects play in HS, and Ford was as good if not better. I hope Ford puts in the work and makes an effort to live up to his potential. Coach Kul will do the rest
