Lurker, question was asked about the punishment the walk on got for the sucker punch???
I don't know anything about the AQM episode, but unless it was ongoing bullying or extremely violent with injuries this seems harsh.
To give us the best shot to have a real ACC season, Coley needs to revamp his play calling and we need to take the Kayaa training wheels off. A little earlier than anyone wanted to, but have to let Brad play as if he had a lot more experience. Someone better be kicking Kehoe's butt who in turn better be kicking a lot of OL butt. Not sure why everyone busting on the inexperienced right side of the line---the left was no better.

Sarasota, I think the Golden extension thru 2019 was really dumb. But, it is what it is. Miami is a notoriously cheap, rather small school. There is exactly 0% chance that Golden would be bought after this season or next, because it is just too expensive for them. Maybe eat the last couple years, but that is AFTER the 2017 season if this thing doesn't get fixed in a major way.

The offensive line couldn't run block or pass block. The D played well enough to win. Is it Coley's fault? Kehoe's? I thought the Oline stunk last year also-----usually called a team strength and hasn't been anytime recently.

Horrible in just about every dimension. To be fair, defense probably a bit better overall. Offense poor, especially the O line which was simply awful. Special teams anything but special.

Thx, Dude. I think he will help us exert some much needed pressure.
Remember, Matt also said Kayaa would redshirt.
Any word on AQM? I think he's set to break out---hope nothing serious getting in his way.
As the rules have changed and the schemes and play calling with that, the highest paid football positions changed also. Today QBs are obviously number 1. We are a country of almost 320 million people, and apparently have fewer than 10 guys who can reliably play NFL qb. Don't believe it? The Bengals looked around and gave the very average Andy Dalton over $100 million. Next are DEs to rush that highly important QB and a left OT to protect that asset. A true shut down CB is worth a ton of $ also, since so few guys can cover fast receivers that you are no longer allowed to give a mean look to, much less touch. Bottom line, RBs just not as important as they used to be. If you can;t reliably pass, the league will shut down your run game. Last, give the short career of NFL RBs, Duke leaving after year 3 is the only reasonable thing for him to do, especially with a degree already in hand. For similar reasons, the numerous RBs considering coming to UM should not be concerned about the #s. Spreading and limiting their carries will add longevity to their career. Need enough touches to show your stuff before heading to NFL, but teams now knocking you down if they think you've been worked too much in college.
Heaps should have gotten his PT promise from Golden and Coley instead of Thirsty and UMike.

I said that yesterday. Matty is pretty clueless.

Based on that "news" from Mattyports, we don't need any more from him.

there is zero chance Kayaa redshirts. No way he is here for 5 years, so why would anyone do that?

If Williams ready for tune up before Nebraska, he has a chance, depending on how Kayaa/Heaps handled first game(s). If not, he will be victim of some very unlucky timing. If Kayaa is playing and playing well, there is zero chance Williams replaces him.

Thirsty, so your conclusion is that it was edited to make Kayaa look bad and justify the heaps nod? Or Kayaa throws a ton of interceptions. Or, it was just random footage?

Ohio Cane, totally agree on Berrios. Obviously, we were simply dreadful on 3rd and short/med passing game last year. Not sure we could put it all on Morris, but it wasn't his strong suit for sure. I think Berrios has a craftiness to him that we haven't seen much lately. As the Welkers of the world have proven, with a good qb/slot combo it is virtually impossible to stop the 5 yd pass.

Interesting interview. I think Coley spoke for quite some time without giving anything away. Did anybody detect a "lean" in his talk? I didn't.

I was thinking about all the high level recruit RBs teed up. It makes sense for several to be at the U at the same time. The way the NFL contracts work now,t here basically is a 3 year deal essentially at scale for your draft position. The real big $ is made after that when have more control. The average lifespan of an NFL back is shockingly low, so----don't pound it 20 times a game in college. Play 3 years, spread the carries around, do your 3 1st contract years in NFL, the big $, then retire in kinda 1 piece.
How can we not have a #10?
The over/under for the game is 55 points. Doesn't that sound low for these offenses unless the weather turned crappy?
Dude, seems simple to me. Start the QB who you think gives you the best chance of winning. No one here close enough to the practices, what kids are being asked to work on, etc to make the call. The only interesting discussion, imho, is if the competition is really close.
Is it really THAT hard to imagine a coach promising a kid some playing time? lol Posted by: UMike | August 21, 2014 at 11:36 AM Obviously it is easy to imagine. Can't imagine why he would though.
