Lurker - here are the records: Game record - 566 yards - Stephen Morris vs. NC State, 9/29/12 [26-49] SEASON 3,642 Bernie Kosar, 1984 [262-416] CAREER 9,565 Ken Dorsey, 1999-2002 [668-1,153] I don't think Morris record will ever be broken. That guy could throw the deep ball better than anyone. He struggled in the intermediate area necessary to keep drives going. In some ways, under appreciated in his junior year. He was magical before he was injured. Not so much after that. Single season may be safe as well for this year. First two games kind of set that back. Kaaya will get his chances tomorrow. Bud will blitz during this game. If the line blocks, and the running backs pick up the blitz, our receivers should do well. To get the career record in three years, Kaaya would really have to perform beyond imagination to go over 9,565 yards? That's an average of 318 yards a game. Don't think that happens. 4 years have to average - 239 yards a game. Tall order but doable.

Looks like the weather will be okay. Kickoff should be about 46 with clear skies and a light 6 mph wind. Wind chill will be 43. That is cold for Floridians but really not so bad for up here. One the guys start running around, they won't feel it. I posted the Kaaya stats earlier because I knew he was playing great and those did confirm that. I mean by God this program has waited a long time for a QB like this and he should be the talk of the town. Remember the lost decade of QB U stuck with guys like Kyle Wright (not bad until he got beat up and lost his confidence), Kirby Freeman, Robert Marve, Jacory Harris, and Stephen Morris? Kaaya is a flat out stud and I predict he will break all UM records if he plays here four years.

Enemy Scouting Report on how well Kaaya has played this year: The Freshman Quarterback Brad Kaaya (6-4, 209, Fr.) is a true freshman quarterback whom Miami fans should be very excited about. He has completed 63% of his passes for 1,806 yards this season. He has 16 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. He is one of just 12 quarterbacks in the country who have already thrown for 1,800 yards and 16 touchdowns this year, and the fact that he has done it as a true freshman makes it even more impressive. Kaaya started out a bit slow, but it’s hard to ignore his progress: @Louisville: 17-29 179 yards, 1 TD - 2 INTs FAMU: 12-22 177 yards, 2 TDs - 2 INTs Ark. State: 16-24 342 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT @Nebraska: 28-42 359 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INTs Duke: 20-34 223 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INT @GT: 16-25 245 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs Cincinnati: 17-24 286 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT Through his first two games, Kaya was 29-of-51 for 356 yards, with three touchdowns and four interceptions. That’s a QB rating of 119.22. However, his performance really started going up beginning with the Arkansas State game. Since that game, he is 97-of-149 for 1,455 yards, with 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. That’s a QB rating of 169.21, which is very impressive for a guy his age. How good are the pass defenses that Kaaya has faced? Here’s a looking at the pass efficiency defense ranking of each team they’ve faced. Louisville: #2 FAMU: 1-AA Arkansas State: #53 Nebraska: #8 Duke: #5 GT: #85 Cincinnati: #124 Kaaya has faced a couple of duds in Georgia Tech and Cincinnati, but he has also faced three of the most efficient pass defenses in the country. His numbers against those three teams: 65-of-105 for 761 yards, with six touchdowns and four interceptions. His QB rating in those three games is 134.02. That’s not great, but it’s hardly bad either, and he took a big step forward against Nebraska and Duke after struggling in his first career game at Louisville. It’s impossible to predict how a true freshman quarterback is going to do on a game-by-game basis, but I think it’s clear that Kaaya is a very talented player, and his ceiling is higher than any quarterback Miami has had in the last decade or more. He might come into Lane Stadium and struggle in his first Thursday night game. After all, he is 0-3 on the road this season. However, he’s already played road games at night at Louisville, Nebraska and Georgia Tech, and two of those places are tough places to play. I think he’ll be more ready for the Thursday night Lane Stadium atmosphere than any other true freshman could possibly be. Kaaya, combined with Miami’s young skill position talent at wide receiver and at running back, could give Miami a very powerful offense in a year or two. It’s good now, but their ceiling is pretty high, assuming the Canes continue to have a solid offensive line. http://virginiatech.sportswar.com/free-content/2014/10/21/hokies-host-miami-on-thursday-night/
Great question Soup!

I am with Lurker on this whole banner thing. It is absolutely wrong. First, when you come to visit someone, you leave your family squabbles at home. That's just basic decency. Second, it is entirely disrespectful to the players. You going to do that to Duke Johnson, who gave part of his knee for your watching pleasure? You going to do that to Kaaya who is the best QB we have had since Dorsey? Really? That's in any way fair to him as he is trying to win the game for U? I don't care if the guy is a Veteran or not. I appreciate his service but he needs a class in enemy recognition because his action is bush league and not in the best interest of THIS team trying to win THIS game!

From the blog - Obviously the numbers have inflated under Golden, but this could be reflective of the overall talent level. Overlay that with the number of 4 and 5 star players on each team's Week 1 roster: 2007: 45 2008: 42 2009: 42 2010: 40 2011: 28 2012: 28 2013: 23 2014: 24 Notice the lack of 4 and 5 star players that Golden recruited the last two years? That is a significant difference. I think the real issue is the DL and has been for the last 6 years. Forston flames out his last year or so here, and we haven't had that dominant Defensive lineman since. There hasn't been a Ted Hendrix, Rubin Carter, Jerome Brown, Warren Sapp, Cortez Kennedy, Russell Maryland, Danny Stubbs, Rusty Maderis type of guy who can dominate his side of the line in a long time. Until that gets fixed we will be an average team. You have to have that difference maker on the line to excel at defense.

UNC - FSU type offense Cincy bad Defense.

This is some game between FSU and ND. Both teams playing at a high level.

I don't know. I hope so. I said cautiously optimistic. Truth is we have a good chance to win if we play the aggressive D we played against Duke. We have a 50-50 chance if we play passive D and try to rely too much on Kaaya. The strength of their D are the corner backs. That is why we need to ride Duke and Yearby.

VT ran for 26 yards against Pitt. 26 yards. Not if we play the Duke game defense, how exactly is VT going to score more than 21 points. And don't you think Duke and Kaaya are worth 21 points? I think Duke should be fed the ball against VT, 25 plus runs, and we beat VT. I know that doesn't fit with the idea of Golden getting canned but VT is just not very good this year.

UNC scores with 11 seconds left. Seems like they score at least 40 a game. Reminds me of us in 1984.
Toggle Commented 4 days ago on Things That Need Fixing at Canespace
Did you watch VT last Thursday? Not exactly a juggernaut offense. I am staying cautiously optimistic. I think there is more than enough talent to hold them down and Kaaya and Duke are worth at least 21 points a game which should be good enough.

But DNo is working on making the necessary adjustments to shut down VT. I read that somewhere...hoping that is true.

Well VT took the first step on the comeback trail. Can they pull it off? They haven't won in Pitt since 1999. Their season is basically over if they don't win this game.

Can't decide - is Pitt this good or VT this bad? Brewer was so good against OSU - I don't recognize this guy playing QB tonight. Pitt is coming off three straight awful losses but has dominated this game. I hope this VT shows up next week because we can beat them. Pitt is committed to a power running attack and might actually be the tougher opponent of the two. Can't believe I just typed that...

I don't think anyone disagrees that there was a cloud. I do think the affect of that cloud has been greatly overstated. Let's look at schools who had a thick cloud over them. USC had real sanctions, lost 30 scholarships over a three year period. Recruiting during period, never worse than top 20 and a couple of years top 5. Record during four years of sanctions - 35-17. Penn State 8-4 and 7-5 with NCAA letting their best players transfer to other schools. Their 2013 recruiting class was ranked anywhere from mid 20's to 40. These teams not only had a thick cloud but actual crippling sanctions. In contrast, although much noise was made about it, the Canes sanctions were not significant in comparison. But lets look at recruiting rankings during the cloud. Miami had three straight top 15 recruiting classes during the investigation. Did Miami lose out on some upper echelon top players during the investigation? Probably but the record on the field doesn't match the rankings of the recruiting classes. Miami is an easy sell. Great city, small classes, history of the program, great weather etc. The disconnect between recruiting and record on the field is obvious and has to be coaching related. I am not hating just stating the facts. I actually like the chances of this team IF it beats what is a very beatable VT team in 2 weeks. FSU is beatable this year unlike last year. Not saying we will but it isn't an impossibility. But the Duke defensive game plan has to be the game plan each week and not the exception.

It was a great offensive performance. If Al Golden was not head coach, we would all be saying how great Kaaya is (and he is the best qb we have had in a decade) and how Duke and Yearby give us an unstoppable 1-2 punch. Yes, Cincy has been decimated by injuries and their defense was not good but the offense took care of business. I want to add something about what a good head coach does and what we have lacked for a long time. Golden is good at selling himself but not so much at selling games to fans. Howard, Jimmy and even Erickson could get fans riled up for games. Not only did they sell players on games they sold fans on them as well. I don't see much that suggests Golden gets players up for games and certainly nothing that suggests that selling games to fans is anything that Golden thinks is important. Like he says, fans are noise and do not seem part of his process. It also would not hurt for the Board of Trustees to be less arrogant about how they are keeping Golden no matter what. They could say something like we are not happy about the record but that we don't evaluate coaches during the season. They could also say all things, both good and bad, will be considered in that evaluation. That sounds better than saying Golden is our coach no matter what.
