Miami fans have selective memories.
They have forgotten that coach Al Golden signed Brad Kaaya, one of Miami’s best quarterback prospects in years, one who has been ecstatic to be a Hurricanes player since he set foot in Coral Gables and projects as a four-year starter with limitless potential.
They have forgotten that Golden, rather than cast off Joseph Yearby, a former high school all-American dealing with serious family concerns this year, allowed the player to take an extended leave of absence. Yearby has returned to the team and thrived.
On Saturday, those two players and senior wide receiver Rashawn Scott combined for more than 650 yards of offense as Miami beat longtime intersectional rival Nebraska 36-33 in overtime.
