Any Dolphin predictions for tonight? Buffalo has had Miami's # for so long now that I never go into this game "knowing" the Dolphins will win. It's uncanny. The Dolphins had all the tools to beat the Bills earlier this year and then...they lost!!

I feel really good about their chances tonight but I've said that soooooooooo many times since 1985 that I can't pull the trigger and guarantee a win!

Anywho, Go Dophins!!!!!

It was cool to watch tonight's game thinking that in two days...THE REAL GAME BEGINS.

SEE Jaemis Winston throw not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven, but eight interceptions in the first half!

SEE Jimbo Fischer break out into a fever sweat as his dreams of a national championship ebb away. And strangely, Sunlife Stadium seems to morph into the contours of the old, beloved Orange Bowl.

SEE Duke Johnson rush for over 150 yards and two scores on a tired FSU defense, that has never seen the likes of this level of competition throughout the year.

CRINGE as Joe Theisman call for Miami to call off its season...because they were too dominant tonight and that was just not fair!

WITNESS Brad Kayaa throw for over 300 yards and three scores, and immediately make himself the frontrunner for the 2016 Heisman trophy.

LAUGH as banner planes fly over Sun Life with the message "Save the Seminoles - Bring Back Bowden"

CHEER as dozens of four and five star prospects in attendance toss aside FSU swag and race to Twitter and other online accounts to announce verbal commitments to the Hurricanes

LISTEN as far away, Terry Porter throws a yellow flag in frustration.

ROAR as the Hurricanes do as what one of their more famous alumni often says (to paraphrase), "Finally, the Canes have come back...to dominance!"

UM's Brad Kaaya ready for his next test: FSU
By Christy Cabrera Chirinos, www.sun-sentinel.com

James Coley remembers the phone call, the excited voice on the other end of the line.

As he watched his former team win the national title, Miami's offensive coordinator exchanged a few brief words with the young quarterback prospect he hoped would one day lead the Hurricanes to a moment similar to the one Florida State experienced this past January in Pasadena, Calif.

At the time, neither the coach or Brad Kaaya likely imagined the moment they could share now as the freshman prepares to lead Miami's offense Saturday when the Hurricanes host the third-ranked Seminoles in the latest chapter of one of college football's most storied rivalries.

"He called me from the game and said, 'Coach, I can't wait to come down and be a Hurricane,'" Coley recalled of the conversation he and Kaaya had that night while the quarterback was at the Rose Bowl to see Florida State's 34-31 win over Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game. "He knew then this game was coming. This game is part of Brad Kaaya's history at the University of Miami."

Earlier this year, few around Miami's program expected Kaaya to be in the position in which he now finds himself. But projected starter Ryan Williams tore his ACL in spring practice. Then veteran Jake Heaps transferred to Miami and brought three years of college football experience with him, making himself one of the early front runners for Miami's starting job.

But when Kaaya arrived on campus in May, days removed from his high school graduation, his strong arm, incredibly sharp football mind, work ethic and an uncanny understanding of Miami's quarterback history quickly impressed coaches and teammates.

"A week into it, it was like, 'Holy cow. He knows as much as everybody else,'" Coley said.

In August, it was Kaaya who earned the starting nod and since, he's done plenty to reward the faith the Hurricanes have had in him. He enters Saturday's game as the ACC's touchdown leader with 20 scoring passes and is also the conference's leader in quarterback rating (157.6).

Kaaya, who has thrown for 2,087 yards, needs just 243 yards to break Bernie Kosar's freshman season record set when the former Miami great was a redshirt freshman in 1983.

But Kaaya, as expected, has made mistakes while adjusting to the college game. He's thrown nine interceptions this season, all of which came during Miami's first six games. There have been moments when Coley admits he nervously wondered if the quarterback would buckle under the pressure.

"It can give you an ulcer. You take 50 shots of Cuban coffee a day and you're a nervous wreck when you're home because you don't know what's going to happen," he said of starting a freshman. "You're always nervous. Is this the game where he completely collapses? But you have to say to yourself, 'What are you talking about? Watch him in practice.' You have to have a lot of confidence in what you're doing, what you're evaluating, whether or not it's the right thing and you have to stick to your guns."

And that's what Coley and Miami's staff have done. They stayed the course with Kaaya, something Ed Croson, Kaaya's coach at Chaminade Prep in West Hills, Calif., said has made a difference in the quarterback's development.

"He's really come of age," Croson said. "We're really proud of him and very impressed with how the way they've handled the whole situation at the University of Miami. . . . They're not hanging him out there."

Now Kaaya prepares to enter the fray against Florida State and the Seminoles' defense, a unit determined to rattle the 19-year-old who was seemingly unflappable while playing in front of more than 90,000 fans at Nebraska's Memorial Stadium in only the second road game of his college career.

His numbers and performance have been compared favorably to the ones put up by FSU quarterback Jameis Winston, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. And that alone makes Kaaya smile considering he spent much of his senior year watching film of Winston and several other top college quarterbacks, preparing for the day when he'd get the chance to match wits with them.

Now that moment is here and those who know him best say he's ready for what Saturday will bring.

"Their 25-game win streak, they're a really good football team, but it's really not Florida State. It's really Cover 2, Cover 3, Cover 1, Sam and Mike blitz, corner fire," Coley said. "That's how the game is played in the helmet. It's not played looking at the helmet."

And for Kaaya, playing Florida State really is that simple.

"It's part of why I came here," he said with a smile.

Unity Dinner tonight at Duke's house: barbecue chicken, ribs, steak -- and of course, crab legs
By Susan Miller Degnan, miamiherald.typepad.com

Just talked to Cassandra Mitchell, Miami running back Duke Johnson's No. 1 fan, who also happens to be his mother.

Cassandra is having a feast tonight for the Miami Hurricane running backs and defensive backs.

It's called a "Unity Dinner,'' and Cassandra said that UM coach Al Golden started the tradition when he began coaching the Hurricanes in 2011.

"Every Thursday before home games they have a meeting,'' Cassandra said of the players, "and all the position groups break up and go to dinner.''

Usually, the running backs head to Cassandra's house in Miramar.

But because this week is the heralded UM-FSU game, the Mitchells invited the DBs as well.

"I wanted to invite the O-line,'' Cassandra said, "but I didn't think I could feed them all.''

What's on the menu for this week's Unity Dinner? Just a little something special in honor of FSU quarterback Jameis Winston.

"Barbecue chicken, barbecue ribs, corn on the cob, baked beans, seafood rice, salad, steaks and... crab legs,'' Cassandra said, laughing. "That was my husband's idea. He had to have crab legs."

Duane Mitchell, Cassandra's husband and a Miami Beach police detective, "does the cooking,'' she said. Her dad, Alvin Williams, "does the barbecuing, and I do the seafood rice. They cook enough for an army.''

She said it's a pleasure to watch the players "interacting without being serious -- relaxing. They're laughing a lot. Everybody is on their phones, on Twitter, but I make them put their phones down.''

I asked Cassandra how excited Duke is for Saturday's game.

"You know,'' she said, "I can't get any emotions out of Duke. The only think he keeps saying is, 'It's just another game, Mom. Don't change anything, don't do anything extra. Let's keep it the same way since we've been winning.'''

Here's to some hearty appetites -- on and off the football field.

When Miami Dolphins rookie receiver Jarvis Landry dived into the end zone for a fourth-quarter touchdown, he was just getting started. A replay review upheld the score, and Landry then sprinted up and down the sideline in a celebration of redemption.

Landry bounced back from a potentially disastrous fumble, and the Dolphins ended a streak of three consecutive losses to Buffalo, overcoming a third-quarter deficit to win 22-9.

Ryan Tannehill shook off five sacks to throw late touchdown passes of 7 yards to Brandon Gibson and 8 yards to Landry. Tannehill went 26 for 34 for 240 yards, and Lamar Miller rushed for 86 yards.

Miami trailed 9-3 before outscoring Buffalo 19-0 over the final 18 minutes. The Dolphins improved to 6-4, their best record after 10 games since 2008.

The Bills, trying to end a 14-year playoff drought, fell to 5-5 with their second loss in a row.

Stymied by Buffalo's front four in recent meetings, the Dolphins had scored one touchdown in 33 possessions against the Bills before late TD drives of 80 and 63 yards. Otherwise a stout defense did the heavy lifting for Miami, which scored a safety on a penalty.

Go Canes

Are you sure USC's coach hasn't said that? If he's not he definitely should be.

Cause last time I checked they have three losses, including an embarrassing one at home to unranked Boston College where they gave up over 450 yards rushing.

Is that better or worse than the 300 we gave up on the road to two of the top five or six rushing teams in the country?

Like us, they've been facing a total rebuild. Like us, they are recruiting very well and doing an excellent job getting back to national relevance.


Go Canes

Great article on Kaaya 30. Coaches over there seem genuinely impressed with the way Coley and the rest of our staffing is developing him.

Hope that continues to open up the pipeline back to California where we have picked up some of the best players in our program's history.

FSpoo's POV:

Florida State football: Miami preview and prediction:

"Miami's defense is a multiple 3-4 look with a ton of experience -- 10 of 11 starters are upperclassmen, and many of the reserves as well. As a result, Miami has managed to remedy its problems of years past, as the Hurricanes are now 11th in stopping explosive drives, a huge improvement over ranking 66th in 2013 and 62nd in 2012. Miami does this by keeping a safety very deep over the top to deny the deep ball, and by being more comfortable in the system thanks to experience, which has resulted in far fewer blown assignments. Other measures back this up, as well.


The strength is big-play prevention; the Hurricanes rank fourth in IsoPPP, which measures the magnitude of an opponent's successful plays. Basically, the Hurricanes allow smaller big plays than almost anybody else.


...


Golden stuck with defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio despite iffy years, and it appears to be paying off. And defensive experience is finally not a weakness. Of the 26 players on Miami's two-deep, six are seniors and 11 are juniors."

Posted by: CaneRock | November 14, 2014 at 10:34 AM

I agree with CaneRock. I would like to see them mix up the run and keep them off-balance with the run as they have done the last few games. For example, running from under center, running out of the shotgun, running stretch right and left, sweeps, off-tackle, from shotgun, from wildcat with Duke at QB, etc.

Kaaya and the Canes are best when Kaaya makes 20-25 throws and the Canes run the ball more than 40+ times, control the clock, rest the D and make timely big plays on offense. Keeping turnovers to a minimum is also important when you play against a very talented defense like FSU's. When you run successfully, the big plays in the passing game will be there.

Duke and his OL are on a roll. It seems they have found a rythm. The return of Flowers is huge (no pun intended). If the Canes run 40+ times they Willl win this game convincingly. I am confident of that.

I agree. And besides Duke's performances running the ball, His blitz pick-up have been just as good, or even better. Another guy that doesn't get credit for His blocking, is Tucker...I was worried about that FB spot when Mo graduated, but Tucker has filled in nicely.

If we keep their O off the field, we win convincingly.

That means running the ball well and a lot, keeping chains moving on 3rd down, and scoring TD's instead of FG's

Go Canes

Been saying it all season, but it's never been more important than in tomorrow's game.

We must win third down on both sides of the ball to have any chance to take this game.

We cannot have multiple/consecutive stalled drives on offense and expect to compete. In my opinion we should be able to run the ball, but that mail also lead to a lot of third downs.

Convert a majority of those we win, fail on those we lose.

Go Canes
