Sorry for your loss Tom!

Terrance Sullivan

Love the Photo Soup!

YooperCane

Can't wait to break out the captain and coke! Time to get phucked up! Go canez!

PapaCane

Is it save for me to assume Rozier will be the starting QB for The U.

UMike

Papa.. I would think so IMO

PapaCane

He should be able to at least manage the game I hope. Our success depends on that.

Malik Rosier

The Dude as I was saying.....

SOUP

Thanks everyone for the condolences and support.

Dude

Ah f*ck Malik, I cant even remember what I said.

He managed it pretty good during his one start

Terrance Sullivan

Malik will be fine. I have confidence that he and our collection of quarterbacks will get it done. I am more concerned about our offensive line, and our depth at RB, and TE. That's what concerns me.

Go Canes!

Have no issues whatsoever with Malik starting. He's been here a long time, has talent and the respect of his teamates and seems to have reigned in the hero ball streak we heard a lot abuut.

Perry will still get his chance the first two games imo, and if going into FSU he hasnt sntached the job away, well in we go to Tally with a JR QB leading us.

Much worse positions to be in.

Yes sir!

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Mark Richt says that behind Rosier, Evan Shirreffs is No. 2 on the depth chart. N'Kosi Perry and Cade Weldon will "learn and compete."

Go Canes!

Ok Malik, let's see what you got.

SOUP

Big mistake, should have gone with The Crow.

He was already at UM for 9 seasons. I think that's the limit.

Terrance Sullivan

Lol Gray Crow has been at Miami for 10 Years even the legendary Buck Ortega is impressed with his tenure at Miami passing Ortega 9 Years of service. Gray Crow is starring in National Lampoons Van Wilder the Miami Edition.

UMike

Question for you guys..and try to be unbiased...do you think Rosier can beat FSU, VT or UNC? Not asking as a rhetorical question, looking for opinions

Go Canes!

UMike VT and UNC will both be breaking in first year starters just like us. Don't know who they are but I question if they'll be as tenured as Rosier.

So for them that position is up in the air like ours imo. Only time will tell how all three do. I do think our defense and offensive skill position players will be much better than what both those teams will have, by far.

So for those two teams I say he won't have to play big for us to win.

As far as FSU goes...it ain't going to be easy.

UMike

Good points Go... I actually didn't know that about their QB. tSully made a good point about our RB and TE depht... We need Homer to step up and I think he will. If the OL can block and Her son steps up, hopefully he can manage the games enough to get us some wins.

Go Canes!

Pitt also breaking in a first year starter:

#Pitt has named #USC grad transfer Max Browne as its starting QB.

Go Canes!

And they don't have Canada up there as OC anymore.

Go Canes!

Hard to believe FSU, starting a redshirt sophomore, is pretty much the envy of the ACC.

UMike

Do we just have the one qb commit right now? I'm kinda out of the recruiting loop lately

UMike

Go, I don't care who their QB is as log as Cook is gone lol... Kills me to see kids from Miami kill us on the field

Yes, Art Sitkowski (IMG)

Oh, and our D and skill positions will have to beat those 3 teams, not Rosier...

Go back and watch the Duke game and look at all the throws he made... and that was 2yrs ago with Golden's staff!

WWIN

Posted by: UMike | August 22, 2017 at 01:34 PM

Yes... but he'll probably just be a career backup lol!

If he decommits tho I see us entering the Justin Fields lottery

UMike

WWIN...I remember we needed a miracle play to beat Duke lol

WWIN

Duke Johnson kneeled during the national anthem last night.

Good for him!

WWIN

Here we go... Nancies gonna Nancy lol! SMH

Or was it Duke was given a PHANTOM TD with 6sec on the clock after TWO PHANTOM pass interference calls on that drive? How many penalties were called on us that game? Take away our miracle TD and take away their PHANTOM TD and we still win if you wanna make things fair.

Were we not winning the WHOLE entire game until the PHANTOM TD??? Didn't Rosier do enough to win the game for us???

WWIN

Duke deserved that miracle TD after all that cheating they did that game!!! 💯

herbieibis

Good choice. Perry needs to get bigger. Should handle UNC & Va. Tech. Rosier gives us a little bit of a dual threat. At least he should be able to dodge the rush a little better and remember, he was a baseball player, so he should have a good arm. What scares me about him or any other qb we have is their decision making, that will be the key! FSU could be brutal for our Offense. Our defense will have to be the difference in us winning that game.

Go Canes!

WW I wish Rosier the best and want him to succeed, but in that game he made the same throws Kaaya did a hundred times while he was here.

You've made his performance into Vince Young against USC at this point.

We'll see how he does. Hopefully that game will be representative of what he'll do game in and game out.

WWIN

^^^^^^
One of my other points... He can't be any worse than Brad... Who was HIGHLY OVERRATED!!!

You missed the point! What he did at Duke on the road for his first start wasn't good??? That was 2yrs ago so that just shows he's more than capable for the job!

UMike

WWIN...you have called our only about commit a career back up and I'm the negative Nancy lol..that wasn't a knock on him, just saying it's not the best body of work to point to. Like i Ive Said more comfortable with him then Sherriffs

VA Cane

Dear Friend,

so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my Dad 10/2010 and it still hurts. I know he was proud of his family, and it is obvious hid family inherited many great traits from their parents.

amazing about you Dad; my Dad served as a Captain in the Corps in Korea and was wounded there; he did his basic at Lejune.

May The Almighty grant you and all of the families peace, serenity, and understanding during this time.

I think the world of you for all that you have done for your family, community, school, and all of your Canespace family for a long time.

Sincerely,
VAC

Thank you Sir!

Go Canes!

No one is saying it wasnt good. It was a nice performance and gives everyone hope he's the man for the job.

But Kaaya had that game 25 times here, yet you call him overrated after everyone of them.

Last year he threw for 400 yds, 4 TDs and no pcks against that same Duke team. But I'm sure you'll turn around and say the receivers did all the work and any QBs could have made the throws.

We'll see how Malik does. I hope he kills it.

But one game doesnt mean he'll blow up or fail. All of us have to wait and see.

Fingers crossed he does a great job.

PapaCane

Love your optimism Go Canes!

You don't want to hear my comment! This is why I don't watch the NFL anymore!

thirstybuzzardcane

Jason Whitlock is spot on about the players kneeling! If the NFL was smart they would do the national anthem when the players are in the locker room, just like they do in college. Just my opinion!

herbieibis

Copycat,
I don't care if they squat, stand, kneel or get on all 4's. I'm tired of listening about it. The field is for playing games. If u want to make a difference, do it on your off days or off season.
Just like first take, does Max or Steven A. know anything about other sports besides, The NBA, Or Pro football or as The Herb calls it the LBSN, (LeBron James Sports Network).

thirstybuzzardcane

Agreed, Herb. Good points!

BigWindyCane1

Rosier is the QB with the most game experience, and he appears to be the one to run CMR's offense and give that Canes running game, speedy playmakers and top ten defense the best chance to win. Rosier needs to manage the game and not turn the ball over or give up negative plays.

If Rosier can do that, Rosier can finally get the Canes over the hump in Tallahassee

BigWindyCane1

This season, Mark Walton will be for us what Dalvin Cook has been for FSU in the past - that talented, explosive difference-maker at RB in a close game

TJL

Duke used to be my all time favorite cane....until last night

Go Canes!

It's not the yards Cook got it's when and how he got them.

We havent had a back take over a huge game since when, McGahee?

WWIN

Posted by: UMike | August 22, 2017 at 05:46 PM

No... you was giving Duke credit pretty much saying we won by luck... when in actuality we should have never needed the TD because of their PHANTOM TD and the refs marching em down the field

NOT about to keep going back and forth with you about Kaaya... we'll just have to agree to disagree lol... but I'll finish with this lol.

First and foremost I appreciate Brad's time and service at The U and thankful that he came during hard times... plus he's a GREAT kid! I wish him nothing but the best and I hope he turns into a great QB one day in the league. But truthfully speaking he was average at best. Proof... he was selected 6th round ONLY by his former head coach... Peterson from Pitt was drafted before him and even a punter! So I'll side with the NFL scouts and experts! Who's on your side? ONLY Canes homers you say? Ask yourself why CMR DID NOT TRY TO CONVINCE HIM TO COME BACK KNOWING THE CARDS HE'D BE LEFT WITH IN HIS HAND???

CMR knew he would be working with Rosier, Allison, Sherrifs, Testaverde, Weldon, and Perry this year BUT YET HE DIDN'T ASK KAAYA TO COME BACK... WHY??? Seems to me he has more confidence in one of those guys instead of Kaaya.

Sorry if the truth hurts 😔

Yeah they should have locked him up for committing such crime!

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

TonyCane

It was unfortunate. I'm hoping he lost a contact lense and was trying to find it at an inoportune time.

Go Canes!

That was some amazing story.

Ive seen JFK conspiracy theories with fewer twists and turns.

None of that makes Malik's game against Duke as amazing as you try to make it or Kaaya as ridiculously bad as you try and make him.

Here's a stat for you:

Malik's start vs Duke: 20-29 for 272 with 2 TDs and 1 INT
Kaaya's career avg: 19-31 for 262 with 1.9 TDs and .6 INTs

He had every Kaaya game, plain and simple.

Not dogging Malik, not saying I'm not confident in him either. I'm praying he has an unbelievable year.

Just find it funny you tout so highly a guy who put up the same numbers the guy you love to dog did every week.

WWIN

Lol! SMH Why can't you just answer ONE of my questions???

"My guy" ONLY had ONE start... Kaaya had how many and had a grade of 59 for his FINAL game which was a bowl game. Took my guy how many tries to beat a ranked opponent... how many did it take Kaaya???

Answer one of my questions please! NFL scouts agree with me yet it's a amazing story with twists and turns to you? 😂😂😂😂😂😂
