Louisville’s Bobby Petrino prepares for UM QB Brad Kaaya

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino gave some cursory impressions of Miami true freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya during a news conference.

“We studied his high school film,’’ Petrino said. “He’s a big guy. He makes a lot of good throws.

“He looks like a guy that gets the ball out of his hand quick, has a quick release. In the video that we watched, he’s not like a run-around guy and he’s more of a pocket passer. But he was impressive in his high school video.’’


The red-carpet premiere of ‘The U Reloaded: The Rise for Five,’ a documentary chronicling UM’s rise to its fifth national title in 2001, is at 9 p.m. Wednesday at O Cinema Wynwood, 90 NW 29th St., Miami. Screening entry is $20 a person.

Miami lawyer Platon Alexandrakis, who directed the project with former UM running back Najeh Davenport, also wants Canes’ followers to attend the “fans’ premiere’’ of their film that will precede the Miami-Louisville opener Monday night.

The fans’ event, also $20, is at 4:30 p.m. at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ in the Shops at Sunset Place, 5701 Sunset Drive, South Miami. After the movie, they’ll turn on the game.

Former Hurricane greats are expected at both events.
