Ray Rice's Agent

✋ how was Joe Mixon, oh nevermind, Mr.Kaaya how would you like too.....

Go Canes!

Brad was a heck of a player, imo he was much better than many here give him credit for.

He certainly wasn't the best we've ever had here. He certainly had flaws.

But he helped us win a heck of a lot more than he made us lose.

Looking forward to a new chapter under center.

Going to be an interesting 2017 that's for sure.

A year from now, everyone will be bemoaning the premature departure of QB Brad Kaaya from the Hurricanes . . . including BK himself.

SinisterCane

Goodbye Bradley!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Canes!

Kaaya won't be starting for anyone next year so his only regret may be missing playing instead of backing up Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers or some other established QB.

Doesnt matter anymore. He's gone.

The only important thing going forward is that Epi is a big, fat jerk.

KAAYA COULD HOLD A GREAT CLIPBOARD THO

If he can play OL that's exactly the type of guy we need.

Gino Torretta won the Heisman Trophy in his senior year at Miami.

He has no issue with Brad Kaaya giving up any chance to do the same.

Torretta, who won the top award in college football in 1992, said he supported Kaaya’s declaration he will enter the NFL draft a year early, and said he will likely have a good pro career.

“You look at what he’s done: [throwing for nearly] 10,000 yards, [holding nearly] every record [at UM],” Torretta said on WQAM. “If he thinks there’s a chance to win a national championship based on what they have coming back, then you make a different decision.

“Just a hunch, but when you get your tooth broken” — as Kaaya did against Florida State — “and I think he’s been knocked out a time or two this season,” Torretta said. “I think he’d rather get paid to be knocked out.”

Torretta, a Sirius XM commentator, said Kaaya experiencing a college head coaching switch “will work in his favor” in the forever-changing NFL. Asked if he would recommend an NFL team draft him, he said it depends on the scheme and coaching staff.

“I like the kid,” Torretta said. “I think he’s done everything Miami’s ever asked and hasn’t complained, even though he’s had some crappy teams and some crappy schemes at times. … He can make all the throws. He could improve his mobility a little bit, but some of that stuff is [him being asked] to stay in the pocket.

Assessing him from a physical standpoint, Torretta said Kaaya has “fine” throwing velocity, “he can make the deep comeback, the 15-, 20-yard out route, which is the hardest throw in the game,” and is “a lot bigger than you think [and] will run a faster 40 time than you think.

“You always need good quarterback play in that league because of the injuries those guys have. I see him being very successful at the next level.

“It all comes down to the guys around him.”

If you look at his personal stats, obviously he broke all my records a long time ago. I think it’s really hard to compare guys who played in my era or [Ken] Dorsey, who had phenomenal talent around him.

“Name one guy Kaaya’s played with who could even play with Dorsey. I don’t think you can compare. I think he’s been a great kid, a hell of a player, done the best with the hand he was dealt.

“‘Quarterback U’ became Quarterback U because of great players around [the quarterbacks] and great defenses.”

Exactly what I've said every time the comparison comes up between Kaaya and Dorsey or any other great QB.

UMike

haha... I like this Pickney kid..

@BradleyKaaya Brad you remember that smoothie I brought you at smoothie king for 20 dollars well I need that back but plus interest 😂 😬😬

I could only think of maybe a few at the WR spot. Dont think any of the RB's see the field, not the TE's, none of the OL, maybe Flowers. But if there is any, its a short list.

Go Canes!

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 04, 2017 at 09:17 AM

Put Andre alongside Richards, McGahee, Gore or Portis next to Walton, McKinnie next to KC, Taylor or Reed next to one of our safeties and what's our record this year?

Just one of those guys change our season. Now imagine having all of them.

Kaaya will be missed, now it's time to move on.

SinisterCane

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 04, 2017 at 09:17 AM

Coley, Richards and Njoku

2002 Outside of Andre Johnson and TE Winslow the WR was OK

SinisterCane

Kaaya win not be missed

CaneRock

Yup...mmmmmmm hm...now I see what Blu was talkin' about. Gonna be hard to keep this kid off the field next year, and good luck keepin' em' at UM beyond 2020:

Ohio_Cane

Coley is a no.

Richards probably, but he's gonna be one of Miami's greatest ever, IMO.

Njoku may translate to back then, but I think he's Shockey's backup.

Ohio_Cane

Perry is ridiculously athletic and talented. MUST ADD WEIGHT. Kid is a bean pole.

I wasnt sure about the guy at first. I had high hopes for him (Epi). Now this news about him kicking puppies, I just cant support that. He's a monster and he needs help.

Duke Johnson.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Dorsett.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Dalvin Cook, Amari Cooper, oh wait... nevermind.

Go Canes!

Posted by: CaneRock | January 04, 2017 at 09:40 AM

His senior year highlights are crazy impressive.

UMike

I forgot about Duke...I will give you that. Not sure he starts over MGahee or Portis, but he definitely sees the field. PD4 maybe

SinisterCane

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 04, 2017 at 09:44 AM

Please stop making excuses for Kaaya your better than this OC

Winslow and Johnson were receiving threats with Beard playing the possession guy. A Johnson Winslow Coley and Richards combo would have been sick

SinisterCane

^^^^^^
Winslow and Johnson were the only receiving threats

UMike

Reggie Wayne, Santana Moss

Shockey

is the boy bowlegged?? And hes gonna need a big ass mouth peice hahaha

Mark from Atlanta

Mcgahee was a beast. ..pure speed and power. ..Edge...Portis...all start ahead of Duke. ..love Duke. ..but he fumbled a couple games away. ..if I recall. But, his runs vs BC fresh yr were a thing of beauty.

Anyone think Njoku would look great in Fins gear on Sundays? They surely don't want bellichek to get his hands on him. ...
God bless you and Go Canes!

I ain't never kicked a puppy that didn't deserve it.

Go Canes!

Right now I'd love to see vegas set the odds on Perry vs. the field for 2017 starting QB, then see it again if Allison and Rosier each throw up a 5-12 for 80 in the spring game.

UMike

The argument can be made a few players Kaaya had could be plugged into the Dorsey era, guys like Coley, Duke, Flowers, Richards, Perryman, but Doresy had elite UNITS all around. Doresy had elite RB's, TE's, OL, the entire defense etc. Had automatic kickers and punters, had elite returners etc.

SinisterCane

Potential Spring 2-deep: OFFENSE

QB Allison--Weldon

RB Walton--Homer

FB Gray

WR Richards--Mullins

WR Cager- incoming Recruit

TE Herndon--Irving

LT Donaldson- St. Louis

LG Darling--Milo

C McDermott - Linder--Gaynor

RG Gauthier--Jones

RT Brown -St. Louis

SinisterCane

^^^^^^
Exchange recruit for Berrios

UMike

That line-up isnt all that impressive IMO... but some talent there. I think Homer will get a lot of carries, the WR's will be talented but very very thin.

SinisterCane

WR's comin'

UMike

WR's comin'

Posted by: SinisterCane | January 04, 2017 at 11:40 AM

Not from what I see

SinisterCane

WR Depth chart for the fall:

WR Richards-Recruit-Mullins

WR Njoku Jr.-Cager

WE Recruit-Berrios

UMike

How many little brothers have turned out better then the big brothers? lol

UMike

IMO, no way Evidence comes in and starts over Cager. Cager was playing great before he got hurt. I think Mullins will have an impact and Berrios is underused.

raizecane

Will we be back to a full 85 after this signing class??

Go Canes!

I don't think we're even going to be close Raize.

UMike

Id rather not be close to 85 then fill spots with long shot projects like Golden would.

WWIN

Will we be back to a full 85 after this signing class??

Ask that question 2yrs from now 😂

Thomas Brown said this morning on the joe rose show that "we have some solid commits that haven't became public yet"
