Dont forget that absurdly awful pick six.

Kaaya sails two or three high passes early then finishes 19 for his last 21 with 4 TDs and he still gets hammered here by the usual suspects.

Imagine if he threw up a 9-27 with a pick six...

If we could keep our talent home, we'd have Cook and Michel!

TJL

Cook has declared 4 the draft- lets see if Jumbo can win without riding cooks coat tails

^^^ Oh for f*cks sake. Of all the retarded sh*t. 1st it was Jameis, then its Dalvin... lol. Some real comedy on this blog some times. Lets see in 3 years if he can win without Francios... lol.

Huskies D is pretty good, eh? I can't quite remember who was saying they were good before the game. Who was that?

It's like I always say..if you. set expectations low, you can't help but to over achieve.

The number you posted for Kaaya is wrong, it was 83.

WWIN

Washington messed up when they let Bama answer their TD with a TD the following possession!

^^^^^^
GC... No sir! 58.4

Top offensive grades:

RG Tyler Gauthier, 76.2

WR Ahmmon Richards, 71.3

WR Malcolm Lewis, 68.9

"Where his a$$ was at" Go Canes???

BEERicane

Washington messed up when they were getting a drive going and fumbled, flipping field position for the remainder of the half. And then obviously the pick-6. Also, Bama getting away with major holding,

Browning is looking like a rattled Kaaya.

Dude on a Pale Horse

UW gonna be alright. But Coach Pete should have tried for the FG throw at the end there.

WWIN

U-Dub is U-DONE! 😂😂😂

Herbieibis

Huskies doing the right things defensively, making Hurts beat them throwing. Not that good of a passer, yet. Wash. Will need a t.o. Or 2 to get back in the game, if not this game is over.

BigWindyCane1

College football polls which matter the most.

ESPN Power football index

14. Miami, Florida

Sagarin's ratings

13. Miami, Florida

The bottom line: Richt's team is a LEGITIMATE solid on down Top 15 team!

And the expansive sky is the ceiling on how far Miami can go in it's quest to become a MAJOR PLAYER in college football again. huh.

Posted by: TheeMackJones | December 31, 2016 at 02:39 PM

I Agree that these rankings are about right. The Canes team that finished the season on a 5-0 streak could beat most ranked teams

BigWindyCane1

Canes men basketball winning 35-26, with 1:59 left in first half

Yes, it reminds me of the 90s. First it was Warrick Dunn. Then it was Peter Warrick. After seven years of that hype at FSU, I was half expecting a "Dunn Peters" to emerge and be a thorn in our side for four more years.

BEERicane

You guys have to be talking about different metrics. QBR only applies to one position.

BEERicane

The officiating here is awful. That was roughing!

BEERicane

I take that back. It wasn't roughing, it was acting!

BEERicane

UW is having to max protect in the passing game. It's a major issue.

BigWindyCane1

Washington is finished. Washington just isn't good enough

Dude on a Pale Horse

Well, UW has all kind of fight in them but as expected Bama D and talent over all is just too much.

Petersen is an amazing coach.

Less than 5 minutes to go down 17 and Wash. still trying to run the football. Been time to get the A-1 sauce out, they're done.

Canes BBall destroys the Wolfpack by 18. Solid ACC win.

BigWindyCane1

As much as our defense has accomplished, it would be nice if they could get more interceptions and more sacks. Still, it is a good thing to see steady improvement under DIAZ. He really did a great job with young players.

Look for Jaquan JOHNSON to lead the secondary next season, and I expect a lot more turnovers caused by this D

BigWindyCane1

Coach L never disappoints. The Canes men BB are finding a way to win

TruCane81

The good news is, I need a new Lurker. I used and abused him throughout 2016. I'm looking for a new azz to slay in 2017. Dr H has a strong application to be his replacement going,

Go Canes!

No I actually thought you meant QBR since we were discussing both QB's bowl performances. I dont know what that stat is, I guess some type of season long rating.

You see, the key to playing devils advocate is to actually have a valid point about what's being discussed.

When staying on topic, which would you rather have:

24-34 passes, including 19 of your final 21 passes with four touchdowns, no interceptions and 282 yards

Or

9-27 with two TDs, an interception returned for a touchdown and 222 yards.

Posted by: CaneRock | December 31, 2016 at 11:32 AM


CR, I agree with most everything you post, but not this.

All Brad needs is consistently good playcalling to be a very good to great COLLEGE QB.

He is a good college qb. Just don't hang him out to dry and he will make plays.

The big thing is keeping him out of 3rd and long ALL GAME like he was ALL YEAR because of run run sack punt.

Design the play so he can throw quick and not think to much cause he gets antsy. This is no surprise with the way our line has whiffed.

He aint Peyton Manning or Vince Young, but he does have the tools to be a heisman winning SYSTEM QB .

Problem is, Richt's system sucks for talent on hand.

TruCane81

How did the 2016 Heisman trophy winner look today?

TruCane81

I worked the RAB and Citrus bowl.

Louisville fans were filing out before half down just 10.

It was one of those games where they were down 10 but it felt like 40.

TruCane81

think I'd rather lose on a gutsy call for the win than losing to a deeper more talented team in OT.

Posted by: The Dude | December 31, 2016 at 12:48 PM


Hell yeah.

BEERicane

But Bama was COMPLETELY BEATABLE.

Posted by: HAPPY SOUP | December 31, 2016 at 06:55 PM

Agreed. Their offense leaves a lot to be desired. Take care of the ball against them (albeit a tall order), you are in good shape.

WWIN

Posted by: Go Canes! | December 31, 2016 at 07:01 PM

Here you go again... I posted GRADES for both players! The same grades that everyone has been usually lately... but since that GRADE didn't look good for Kaaya you had to search for something else 😂.

Kaaya was ONLY pressured SEVEN times on 35 attempts. He didn't make any throws that you couldn't have made.

While on the other hand Francois was pressured NINETEEN times on 32 attempts... imagine how many sacks that would have been for Kaaya. But let's keep complaining about how bad our O-line is lol!

Another thing...Kaaya has had NFL talent to work with EVERY YEAR here so can we stop this talk about him not having the talent around him like Francois and etc..

WWIN

One more time for ya GC...

Miami Hurricanes
Quarterback grade: Brad Kaaya, 58.4

Kaaya benefits from work after the catch

While Miami QB Brad Kaaya amassed 282 passing yards, 65 percent of his yardage was collected after the catch by his receivers. Regardless, Miami walked away with the bowl victory and Kaaya led the way by tossing four touchdown passes to four different receivers.

Ohio State Urban get way too many calls.....the fiesta back when....first down against Michigan, the first down at the 30...way short.

Watson is the only real QB I see in the draft....he is pretty good....even the picks...hew does not worry at all...

OSU getting their ass whipped.....kinda like Rousey....she aint so rowdy now....that girl whipped her ass...I never respected her game....bending an arm is BS....when she has to fight....not so good...gled to see her act and mouth go away...bunch of talk act...too much for me...

Clemson is going to beat Bama.

One of my old players looking good for Clemson #99 Clelin Ferrell, RS Frosh...he's 6'5" about 260...played on me 8th grade team...good kid very athletic...went to Benedictine College Prep HS instead of public....military Roman Catholic school....very good school. He was a beast at 13 14.....giving Urbans boys fits....very quick.....he was funny too...he loved Freddy....it shows..his footwork and technique is natural....proud of him. Talked to his Dad last week....they are great people....go Tigers!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

I agree, Dude! Bama won't score many points in that game.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Speaking of scoring points...

Hire Mark Helfrich.

I have to give it to Clemson. They are deleting a more powerful Ohio State.

I personally invite any and all 2017 Buckeye recruits to reconsider their commitments and attend the University of Miami, rather than a deleted, obsolete achool

Dude on a Pale Horse

Miami has its Brent Venables in Manny Diaz. It could have its Chad Morris in a Mark Helfrich.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Our D will be Clemson good if Richt can get the O on board.

Dude on a Pale Horse

The spread is no longer the future of college football. Its the most dominant offense in the game. Miami has to evolve. Hire Mark Helfrich. Carthago delenda est.

This Ohio state performance looks like a loss I think two seasons ago. One of the O players after the game ripped Meyer for being too conservatice

Nothing special. Just a part time gig doing grunt work in event services. Gate, usher, that type thing.

It sucks but the extra money is helpful keeping my head above water til I pass the state real estate license exam.

It also gave me a chance to watch my first live Cane game at RAB, so it aint all bad.

TruCane81

Development and game planning are superior to recruiting SHORT TERM.

Getting the most out of lesser talent anda confident, charismatic pitch is the key turning around a struggling program by getting recruits excited about building something special.

Better playcalling ( I will beat this horse ad nauseum until changes are made) would have made us THAT program right now.

It looks like it will be Chris Peterson and U dub though.

How bout that end to the Noles UVA game? Wild.

Go Canes!

Only thoughts on yesterday's game outside of the obvious is if you're Jerry Jeudy, why the hell would you go to Bama.

The starting QB is only a freshman and there's no sign he's ever going to be used as a passer, Ridley is already higher up the pecking order and he's been basically eliminated from the offense and you just lost your offensive coordinator so you have no idea what's coming next year and beyond.

Outside of rare, rare situations WR at Bama and TE at FSU is where careers go to die.

CaneRock

All good points Go Canes.

Even guys that come to UM as 2 or 3* TEs (Walford & Njoku), get drafted in the top half of the draft.

Hell, even guys that didn't come to UM to play football (Graham & Swoope), get drafted, or make somebody's roster some type of way.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Then what the hell is going on? Why dont we have 4 & 5 star TEs knocking down our door?

UM isn't sexy anymore. High school seniors today have no memory of Miami as anything other than a second rate program.

WWIN

I can understand Harley not coming but not Jeudy!

Jeudy's mind set should have been... I'm not going to UM as long as Golden and Co are still there but I'll go if they hire a good staff.

Harley was invited to Paradise Camp and was the best WR there according to multiple people and still didn't get a offer!

Herbieibis

And the last 12 years we are average at best, to many coaching changes, can't even win the coastal division, etc, etc!

WWIN

1mg... you right! And actually I think these kids think it's cool to burn UM and play the game with em!

Happy New Year Canespace!

BigWindyCane1

Richards is a very special player. Richards will continue to strike fear in defenses and draw double teams going into next season.

I am anxious to see how Mullins has developed and will perform. I thought Mullins, Richards and Bruce were the best receivers in one class for the entire country, getting the best from Miami-DADE, Broward and Palm Beach Counties in one recruiting class. They were all big time playmakers in high school, and Richards did not disappoint. Bruce is gone, but Mullins is still here. If he picks up the playbook, he will make some plays for the Canes next season

VA Cane

I think people think regardless of the U, I am going to places to where I can play for titles. Bama, OSU, Clemson, FSU....and even lower programs like Washington, OK, Ok State, USC.....they have some kind of relevancy.....

when we died....after the Fiesta....(well it was several years into clappys regime...for me 2003 fiesta....) we died big....we fell off the map...we sucked...then RS burned so many bridges with his bad rep as a person...hateful resentful behavior....that killed FL....then AlPa came in and destroyed things....the program is unknown...these kids have no idea about 2001 team and others.....and do not care...in their minds little u is like USF, FIU, FAU.....just another average team in FL not big time...who has no cred with winning...hopefully CMR and the team improves our image...i would think so....i look forward to better recruiting and a good 2017.
