Sarasota 'cane

I am 1st!

SOUP

As I have stated on MANY occasions, Kaaya is a Hurricane for life and we appreciate that BUT he is just an above average QB. He has a good arm, below average physical assets, decent accuracy and a good command of the game AND what he lacks is the intangibles.

1. He is not a LEADER of men.
2. He has no will to enforce on his opponent.
3. He does not HATE losing.
4. He does not make those around him better.
5. He is just a guy in practice and on the field.

I am thankful for his service to The U but he is not winning any Medal of Honor for his actions while in Coral Gables. Maybe a Purple Heart for some of the hits he took, but that's about it.

Ouch! And the truth shall set you free!

Soup on point and a very sharpened one at that

BigWindyCane1

Great points Soup!

AfriCane

I don't agree with soup's rant/point.
It's a mixture of pseudo fact and opinion.
I think the only thing that should be said about kayaa is, he is our best QB since Dorsey.
No more need to be added.

Go Canes!

I wonder if those making proclamations about Kaaya with such absolute certainty feel the same about Duke Johnson?

HillViewCane

Kaaya will be great in the Pros. Remember this post. I want my props later. He gets traded to NE and the Dolphins suffer for years.

False.

Dude

What does Duke Johnson have to do with criticisms of Brad Kaaya?

What round did Duke get drafted vs what round Kaaya got drafted???

Go Canes!

Posted by: Dude | May 01, 2017 at 02:13 PM

Aren't their careers are mirror images of each other?

Go Canes!

Posted by: WWIN | May 01, 2017 at 02:24 PM

That's irrelevant.

RCCF

Wait So 2 Kids Who Set Records for TheU are Now Considered UnderAchievers????


How??

Dude

^^^ Is that the comparison?

Go Canes!

No only one of them.

BigWindyCane1

FSU v UM from October 16, 2016, is on ESPNU right now

BigWindyCane1

Our defense was hitting and aggressive. Can you just imagine how the defense will play this year?

RCCF

How GoCanes?

BigWindyCane1

The front seven will be more experienced in Manny's defense, and should be ranked among the best in the country. The secondary will actually be more talented next season. Jaquan JOHNSON will be our defensive leader. This defense should have a few shutouts and opponents will dread playing the Canes.

Go Canes!

What a throw and catch, Kaaya to Coley to make it 10-0 in that game.

Why didnt we throw more.

Ugh.....

Go Canes!

On 3rd and 19 to boot.

I would take Morris over Kaaya!

BigWindyCane1

The Canes need our new QB to play as good as Francois played this past season against us, and Walton and the improved defense will do the rest.

Herbieibis

It's great that we stock the pros but it would be even better when we're stocking and clocking the comp.

No it's not... Duke was ACTUALLY good hence he got drafted higher... and you could see that dog in Duke!

Per Athlon Sports:

Coastal Division

1. Miami
There’s not much separation at the top in the Coastal Division. For now, let’s give the edge to Mark Richt’s Hurricanes as the early favorite for 2017. Quarterback Brad Kaaya left early for the NFL after throwing for 3,532 yards and 27 touchdowns as a junior in 2016. Malik Rosier worked as Kaaya’s backup and should get the first opportunity to start next fall. However, Rosier will face competition from Evan Shirreffs and incoming freshmen N’Kosi Perry, Cade Weldon and Jack Allison. Until a quarterback emerges, expect to see the offense lean heavily on running back Mark Walton. The supporting cast also has to be retooled. Receiver Stacy Coley expired his eligibility, and tight end David Njoku left early for the NFL. Standout guard Danny Isidora will be missed in the trenches. Coordinator Manny Diaz has to replace a couple of players in the secondary, but the strength of this team should be the defense. Three freshmen – Shaq Quarterman, Michael Pinckney and Zach McCloud - return after anchoring the linebacker spots in 2016. Joe Jackson, Chad Thomas and Kendrick Norton are back to lead the way for a talented defensive line.

BigWindyCane1

That BS holding call on the Mark Walton TD run was the difference in winning and losing

SOUP

Soup's post, imo, is ridiculous.

Posted by: Go Canes! | May 01, 2017 at 05:58 AM

First off NOBODY cares about your opinion.

Secondly the only thing ridiculous here is YOU!

You are so damn predictable it is SAD.

Let's see 20 VOTES for me, 2 against.

Yeah I'll take my odds on that VOTE!

Who is RIDICULOUS now?

SOUP

Yes, yes and YES!

TruCane81

Kaaya would win games under Bellicheck. But how much longer will he really be around?

He will more than likely be a Charlie Batch type guy. He could start on a west coast passing team looking for a stop gap at qb.

His awareness deteriorated due to inept line play. He was a pocket passer with no pocket or run game way to often against the big boys.

His coach hung him out to dry and killed his confidence and draft stock. Go back to unc game and look at those escapes he made and completed passes.

The footwork is there. I am just not sure he will ever regain the poise to be anything more than a career backup.

CaneRock

Damn, Rockets whoopin' Spurs @$$ 69-39...in SA!

CaneRock

LOL...D'Antoni saw Kerr stealin' His style and came back! Dude's offenses were dynamic in PHX (Nash,Matrix,Stoudemire,Joe Johnson,Barbosa)...the West is right up His alley now, He doesn't have Shaq & Kobe, & Duncan & a younger Parker to contend with anymore.

Terrance Sullivan

Or Kobe and Pau to deal with as well.

CaneRock

Yessss Sir Terrance.

A conversation about Kaaya has to include the OC. Kaaya would be viewed much different around here if his coaches used his (and others) talent, instead of leaning into the weakness.

Kaaya isn't all world. He isn't a bum.

Oh and by the way, the key to a happy life..... naps.

Yawn. Have another scotch.

Your proclamation was the worst parts of big mouthed talk radio caller all rolled into one.

You have no first hand knowledge of ANYTHING you so certainly spewed.

Just like Duke had that dawg in him.

At the end of the day they were the same. Record shattering, winless against FSU, early departing players. Both had the opportunities to put the team on their backs but never made the huge play in the huge game.

Yet one is a legend and the other a bum to you.

Give me a break

Go Canes!

Posted by: 1mg Of epi | May 02, 2017 at 03:07 AM

Exactly.

Go Canes!

The reality is both guys helped put their teams in position to win big games plenty of times in their careers but we're let down by bad coaching, bad defenses, dropped balls, poor o-line play just to name a few.

SinisterCane

Hmmm how should vote????????

Kaaya went 0-3 vs. FSU, he shouldn't even be allowed to throw up tha U. Even we he had time Kaaya still overthrew WR's and TE's

I'm so glad Kaaya has taken he losing DNA out of Miami. He'll fit right-in with the architect of Pillars and used cars deals
