Dos.

The Dude

Went back and read the blog. Good stuff Mr. SOUP. Thinking "Make your wife breakfast in bed for enduring your general lack of attention, at times ridiculous behavior and other nonsense you exhibit during football season," is probably the best idea you've ever had.

Go Canes!

Someone needs to turn in their man card after posting that drivel.

We're only 90 days from spring practice.

welcane

Live Every Moment. Go 'Canes!!!

SOUP

I don't have a man card, I turned it in years ago along with my hard core fan card. Life is so much easier and better. So much weight lifted off of my shoulders, much less stress.

#CasualFan

Go Canes!

Just messing with you Soup. Anyone who knows me knows family comes first under any circumstance.

Desperately wanted to go to the bowl game but didn't only because it was our last day with my step kids before they went away for the weekend with her dad and one of mine was leaving town as well.

Could've pulled it off, but spending time with them is always the most important thing.

CaneRock

Look at SOUP lookin' like Cal Ripken Jr. in the 6th pic from the top. But you burnt the hell outta the top toast in the 5th pic from the top LOL. Nevertheless, great blog as always SOUP!

Go Canes!

No reason this couldn't be us next year :

Hale: Fun fact: With two more in the nat’l title game, Clemson will lead the nation in tackles for loss for the FOURTH straight year.

Mark from Atlanta

Amen to that said the brother in the third row!
Words to live by SOUP.

Thank you for your time and efforts to all of Us..
With canespace!

God bless you and Go Canes!
Best wishes to all the Canes brothers!

Happy new year to you all and here is to an awesome 2017 for us Canes fans! Go Canes!

Anybody watch the UA game yesterday? DJ Johnson and McFarland were playing so was Jeff Thomas and CJ Henderson.

They should, they play 3 more games than us. Stats should go back to counting just in the regular season.

 Baby New Year

To answer my own question, DJ had 2 sacks.

CaneRock

BNY...no worries with Kuligowski coaching the DL. Our sack total will go up this year. Just gotta get our guys on the back end to anticipate INTs.

SOUP

Nevertheless, great blog as always SOUP!

Remember when I started talking about this being the key defensive stat as to why Mark and AG's D sucked. Some people here said I cherry picked it.

Go Canes!

Posted by: Baby New Year | January 02, 2017 at 10:32 AM

We had 77 through 13 they have 102 through 14. By game we're at about six and they're at 7 1/4.

Very attainable number considering a huge percentage of those tackles came from true freshmen who are hopefully only going to be better as they mature.

Go Canes!

Lmao. Satan already creating a scapegoat for when he loses to Clemson:

Alabama announces Lane Kiffin won't coach the national championship game. Steve Sarkisian becomes offensive coordinator.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: Go Canes! | January 02, 2017 at 12:14 PM

We cant over state the job Diaz has done. Just goes to show how much improvement a team can make with just 1 capable coordinator. Last I checked, Mark Helfrich is available. If I had to hire a coach to help make the inevitable change to the spread offense, he'd be the guy, him or Chip Kelly. Plus its an offense that shredded FSU.

CaneRock

TFL don't mean nothin' if the QB play and/or play-calling sucks...we had 115 TFL in 2010.

With the exception of U-Dub, I hate(d) the rest of the teams in the Final 4. Can't wait to get back up there and start whoopin' their @$$E$ again.

BigWindyCane1

Looks like the ACC is 8-3 in bowls going into today, with no conference having a chance to equal their win total for this season. The ACC also has a team (Clemson) in the national championship game after they crushed a Big 10 team (Ohio St.) that probably had no business being on the same field.

The SEC has Alabama, but the ACC may be the strongest conference this season, top to bottom, with the Coastal Division as the strongest division.

Go Canes!

Clemson is going to win.

They outplayed the Tide last year but let the game away on some busted plays to the TE that cost them dearly.

Offensively Bama has regressed and Clemson is playing solid D.

BigWindyCane1

Gators beating Iowa pretty good. Not good for recruiting battles with Henderson and slaton and other commits the Canes are trying to get or flip. At least the Canes will be ranked higher than Iowa in the final poll. I hope the Canes can jump past Weatern Michigan in the final polls. I didn't see one team play today that is better than the Canes

Steven

Great Cane discussion forum, my friends. Happy New year to all of you.
For the first time in a decade I am looking forward to next season as it looks like Pastor Mark has things looking OK.

I am now looking forward to turning my attention to all things Cane basketball. After finally getting to watch a replay of the game against NC State, I am stunned at how good our defensive effort looked. This is a bridge year for our squad in a brutal ACC conference, but it looks like Coach L, again, will give other teams as much heartburn as we will receive. Izundu may end up being a force in the middle.

Support the squad and get out to the WATSCO Center during ACC play!

Killing me. The good news; after next year when the O sucks for a stretch again, and finally everyone says we need an OC, someone good will be available. I just hate how coaches either wait until the last possible moment, or get themselves fired before they admit to the truth. Wish we had a Pete Carrollesque, Tell The Truth Monday.

Go Canes!

Wow...did not see this coming:

Offense has been more than fine since halftime is the Irish game.

We haven't even had a close game come to think about it.

Prescott has opened a new door for the big & mobile QBs...but I wasn't very impressed with Evans when we played em'.

Go, the D was the far superior unit when comparing national ranks.

Offense was outside the top 25, while the D is top10

Nice blog soup. Tomorrow going to the beach and riding the pony which is playing outside at its finest.

Go Canes!

Of course they were but the offense was damn good the second half of the season.

20-Second half ND
51-Pitt
34-Virginia
27-NC State (more than FSU or Clemson scored)
40-Duke

4-3 attacking defense

Thanks, defense!

No problem

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ The points have been enough to win those games for sure. Its the lost feeling the O has for long stretches. The game planning has been stale. I'd love to bring in a Mark Helfrich, you and I both know that'd put us over the top.

Go Canes!

Kaaya gone.

Go Canes!

Miami Quarterback Brad Kaaya to Enter NFL Draft

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Junior quarterback Brad Kaaya announced today that he has elected to forego his senior season at the University of Miami and enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Kaaya started every game during the 2016 season and was a mainstay for the Hurricanes under center since stepping on campus in 2014 as a freshman. During his three seasons at Miami, Kaaya started 38 games and became the school’s all-time career leader in passing yards (9,968), completions (720) and attempts (1,188).

β€œWhile I am looking forward to pursuing my future endeavors, I am going to miss our fans, media, students, administrators, coaches, families, and most importantly my teammates, who were with me through the good times and the tough times,” Kaaya said.

β€œAttending a University this far from home wasn’t the easiest transition initially, but this program provided me a home away from home ever since my arrival in 2014. Since then I have registered as a resident of Florida and am proud to call Miami my long-term home. I plan to be involved with the University of Miami moving forward as I pursue my degree in communications. I also plan on giving back to this university and the South Florida community, two places that had such a positive impact on my life. I look forward to watching Coach Richt and his staff, and our team do even bigger and better things for years to come.

β€œThis was one of the toughest decisions of my life, however, I have zero worries that The U will indeed be back. No matter who is under center next season, I have no doubt in my mind they will have the platform and the resources around them to bring a major championship back to Coral Gables. Miami will forever hold a special place in my heart and I am proud to say that I will always be a Miami Hurricane.”

The Los Angeles native threw 69 career touchdown passes, which ranks third in program history, and his 60.6 percent career completion percentage also ranks third on UM’s all-time list. In addition, he is the only quarterback in Miami history to surpass 3,000 yards through the air in three straight seasons.

β€œBrad informed me of his intention to declare for the NFL draft,” said head coach Mark Richt. β€œI want to personally thank Brad for all that he’s done for the University of Miami. He has been a blessing to the program and I know he’s going to have a wonderful professional career. I want to wish him the very best!”

During his junior season, Kaaya posted single-season career highs in completions (261), attempts (387), yards (3,532) and touchdowns (27).

Over the final five games of his collegiate career, Kaaya threw 14 touchdown passes and had just one interception.

In his final game as a Hurricane, Kaaya led Miami to a 31-14 victory over West Virginia in the Russell Athletic Bowl as he went 24-of-34 for 282 yards and four touchdown passes. His four touchdown passes tied a Miami bowl record.

β€œOn behalf of University of Miami Athletics I want to thank Brad for the wonderful job he did representing our program on the field, in the classroom and in the community,” said Miami Athletics Director Blake James. β€œWe wish him the very best as he starts the next chapter of his football career.”

Kaaya was a two-time All-ACC selection and was named the 2014 ACC Rookie of the Year. In the classroom, Kaaya earned CoSIDA Academic All-District team honors this past season.

The 2017 NFL Draft will take place on April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Ok is it Rosier to start things out, or Perry, and wonder if this will effect recruitment?

WWIN

Nothing to see here... keep it moving... I told y'all "He gone" 3 weeks ago!

Thanks, Brad. Good luck.

ColaCane

Wow CR do I sense disdain in your post?

thirstybuzzardcane

I like Weldon a lot. I wouldn't be surprised if he makes some noise next year. He grew up with a QB dad who knows Richts system well.

thirstybuzzardcane

Seriously though, those officials in the USC game ate the worst I've ever seen! Even worse than our buddy Terry Porter.

WWIN

Posted by: ColaCane | January 02, 2017 at 08:37 PM

Recruiting can't get any worse πŸ˜‚!

By that I mean positions that depends on the QB like WR and TE

thirstybuzzardcane

Good decision by Brad. He won't improve his draft stock any more. Plus, there are some good QBs coming out next year's class.

WWIN

Good luck Brad... knock em dead!

We'll miss you!

Go Canes!

Sad to see him go, think he would have given us the best chance to make a serious run next year.

Perry missing spring ball just got that much bigger.

Hate the thought of breaking in starting QBs back to back years, especially when I think about us opening with LSU in 2018.

So here's hoping Perry overwhelms the field and makes it impossible for CMR to sit him.

ColaCane

BK THANK YOU for giving it up for the U. Yeah wished you would've seen this through to the end, but you've EARNED the right to leave early and take your shot at the big leagues! Nothing but success for you dog!

Right on cue, Ariz posts Perry's senior highlights:

thirstybuzzardcane

Is Weldon coming in for spring?

thirstybuzzardcane

Well, we have a lot of QBs to choose from. Surely we can find at least one out of them

CaneRock

Wow CR do I sense disdain in your post?

Posted by: ColaCane | January 02, 2017 at 08:43 PM

Time to move on to bigger & better things.

CaneRock

And frankly, we can get the same results with either Rosier or Perry. Least now we have several options that can extend plays with a young & inexperienced WR corp.

ColaCane

Whoever we start hopefully they'll be more mobile. One of the few things that hurt BK.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Was hoping Brad would come back... knew he wasnt. Hopefully a good team drafts him and gives him a good chance.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Even more reason to hire a Mark Helfrich now.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Best case scenario is Jack Allison takes command of the team like a champ.

KYcane

doesn't matter who the QB is as long as we are winning.

thirstybuzzardcane

75% of Brads sacks could've have been avoided if he was mobile. Its going to be nice to see a QB that can scramble.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Need the OL to improve bigly.

Dude on a Pale Horse

When's the spring game? It just got a whole lot more interesting.

Go Canes!

Posted by: The Dude | January 02, 2017 at 09:10 PM

That would be great, but so far it doesn't seem like he is wowing them over in Coral Gables.

Obviously just speculation, hope it's not the case.

The Rose Bowl

Hi, Just saying. 206 on DTV 403 Xfinity

Don't be surprised if Richt reaches out to Malik Zaire...Zaire says He won't make His decision until the Spring.

Posted by: The Dude | January 02, 2017 at 09:13 PM

Why??? We'll have a MOBILE QB now

Malik Rosier(R.So)

Hate the thought of breaking in starting QBs back to back years, especially when I think about us opening with LSU in 2018.

So here's hoping Perry overwhelms the field and makes it impossible for CMR to sit him.

Posted by: Go Canes! | January 02, 2017

Just look at my handle, I got this RPO shizz on lock.

Posted by: WWIN | January 02, 2017 at 09:34 PM

I just don't want to have to break in a starting QB in back to back seasons.

If he wins the job and gives us the best shot at winning, I'm great with him starting.

But all things being equal I'd love to see one of the young guys take the job by the throat and not let it go.

Go Canes!

My bad, I thought Rosier was also a Jr.

We'll see what happens. Going to be a very interesting offseason.

Malik Rosier(Playmaker)

Jack and Perry going to have to marinate. RPOs work best when you still have the read in the run instead of just inside zone hand off. I'll leave you guys with this final nugget.

Brad made some amazing throws but I'll make the amazing plays.

That was a classic.

Take another hit.

BigWindyCane1

I wish Brad lots of luck in the NFL. I was hoping he would return, but his decision is logical. Brad is projected as a second round pick and might even sneak into the late first round. Brad was part of the turn around.

I haven't seen any of the QBs play, except Rosier. I liked his 40 yard run against Duke on an option read to end the game. I think he could bring a different dimension to the offense and open things up, especially with the RPO. Also, I have seen the other QBs like Allison, Sheriffs and Testiverde, in warmups before the game, and they all have good arms and are pretty accurate, and relatively mobile. So it should be an interesting competition for the starting QB position this season. I think CMR thrives on evaluating QBs, so he will have his chance this offseason. This will be a great spring and fall to watch closely

The Rose Bowl

Posted by: Crack Pipe | January 02, 2017 at 10:18 PM

Make sure the Sugar Bowl takes a hit.

BigWindyCane1

From what I have seen, I expect Donaldson to start. I saw him play in high school, and he is the real deal. He is big, strong and moves well. He is the one OL prospect that was a must get. The Canes need another 1-2 good tackles. I don't know much about Brown, and hopefully, Sunny will improve and return stronger than ever. St. Louis and the others struggled in space and was inconsistent, but showed some flashes.

Go Canes!

I think with a healthy Sunny, Linder, Darling, Donaldson and what we already have we can put together a more than adequate line for next season.

WWIN
