YUP! We gotta take out a few people first, grind them up, dump them in the ocean, but other than that we are clear. U got plans or boating experience? LOL

Meph - I think Canes getting drafted since '99 is a showing of how they're still being able to get some nice players

I dunno how good Erickson could've been without the Tommy John, Hernandez looked good his Frosh year but pressed too much last year ...

I don't know exactly what I think of Arteaga as the pitching coach

They still went 53-11 a couple of years ago and went to Omaha

They have an influx of youth on the squad this year. I think if they stay around, they'll do some damage

Haith Poll Results so far:

60 total votes

45% Maybe

27% Yes

SOUP

FINAL Shannon Poll Results:

370 Total Votes

171 Votes or 46% for the 3 year extension.

87 Votes or 24% for the 5 year deal.

67 Votes or 18% for the 2 year plan.

40 Votes or 11% for NO extension until after the season.

That last one was a little surprising, no?

(Remaining votes were in the "other" category)

I'm not sure that Randy and co are still interested in this kid... Is this not the type of stuff that they have tried to stay away from???

Ungar

So, it looks like there is more Faith in Shannon than Faith in Haith based on the poll results.

I feel that if they had scheduled a tougher early schedule, not grueling, but no 300-level teams either, they would have made it into the NIT. That phantom 15-1 start made folks shy away from bringing them in, IMO.

I am not sure if that is Haith's fault, but I recall him defending that easy Gator-like non-conference schedule. I would rather make these guys work to get better than to get glorified practices that end as 20 point "wins".

Let's see if next year's schedule gets tougher....


UMike

404..I agree and Randy said he didnt have ANY schollys left for ANYONE..I mean Anderson was a 5 Star player at a position of need and he had to get a track scholly.

Florida News... Off Topic... Laugh or Cry?
Don't read, if not interested.

Estimated that 500,000 homes will be foreclosed on in Florida and of thoses, Miami is highest with 80,000 homes. Which is clogging the courts and delaying recovery.... recovery? That's laughable!

Cat 5 Cane

Poll...
I don't like any of the choices and wished you had "Other" as a category.

Faith in Haith... not so much, but the kids... Yeah, we might have something going here!


Looking forward to next year!

Esteban

Cat5, recovery or not the foreclosures are still going to happen because people still have their rates adjusting giving them mortgages that job or no job they would have a hard time paying. just would be a smaller number of people foreclosing if they all still had work...but might not be a much smaller number of a number. there are high foreclosure numbers in areas where a ton of jobs weren't lost.

carolina cane

Haith needs a little more depth of talent to compete with the upper crusters in the ACC and more than one consistant scorer. Miami not being a basketball school, doesn't help either.

Aquaman

Dayton,

I was working in the Telemundo Building and heard this, it made me think of you:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob4-LaTki5I

Six

Croc Pro Day yesterday up at The Puddle

All the players were out there at 10am, as scheduled

Except one

He didn't come out until 5 'til noon

I'll let you guess who made everyone wait for 2 hours

The sports guy we sent up there to cover it wasn't exactly happy yesterday - being at the station until 1:20am the night before, having to get up at 5:30am the morning of to go pick up the one of the other sports anchors at 6:20 ... then driving up to Gainesville to get there by 9am to see the guys warming up ... then shooting/interviewing players from 10am until 5 'til noon, having to wait for this certain player ... then filming him go through his workouts, then going to his press conference afterward

Ahh, such professionalism on that certain player's behalf, just one of the regular guys that comes out at 10am like they're supposed to .. right?

Funny, how many of the regular guys who came out on time to work out for the scouts and coaches and GMs - are going to be 1st or 2nd rounders. This guy who makes everyone wait until 2 hours later, maybe will sniff the 5th round if he's lucky and some team decides to put their money where their mouth is

Of course you always certain hear GMs or coaches say the right thing on camera "Someone is going to get a winner" ... "The kid just wins" ... "He's a hard worker, whoever gets him will be lucky" ... "I don't think there's anything wrong with him"

Oh yea? Alright. Talk is cheap jabronis. Go ahead and pick him in the first 4 rounds then if you really do believe the garbage that is falling out of your mouth in front of cameras

Mike Holmgren was there yesterday, he was nothing but a soundbite lovefest machine for this guy who came out 2 hours late. Well Mikey, you go ahead and make him the QB of the Browns then

Holmgren took Seneca Wallace in the 4th round back in 2003 with the Seahawks and just got Seneca to come to the Browns. Seneca was an athletic QB at Iowa State, could run/scramble and throw. You go ahead Mikey and take the guy yesterday who you were fawning over and make him your QB of the Browns

Six

Ya, because Seneca Wallace turned out to be outstanding as a QB and/or WR for the Seahawks ... great pickup Holmgren, singing the praises of him being a winner as well at Iowa State and an athletic QB

- Started a total of 12 games in 5 years
- 76 yards receiving in 5 years
- 214 yards rushing in 5 years


And I don't ever want to hear ANY kind of comparison between Steve Young and this former Croc QB ... ya, they're both white QBs and that's about it ... if Holmgren does take him, simply b/c Holmgren worked with Young


Daytoncane

Posted by: Aquaman | March 18, 2010 at 12:33 PM

haha.

i forgot how much the new version sucks. i wonder how appreciative Haiti is of our crappy music?

canechic

You get em SIX!

Six

canechic - I was watching all the raw video my guy shot yesterday up at work, with all the interviews ... he was still pissed about waiting for 2 hours and then later afterward, having to wait for the press conference

Mike Tomlin and Raheem Morris were hanging out together all day. They looked like they were just having fun ... then getting back to work ... then having fun ... then getting back to work

It probably wouldn't have been good if I was there, b/c I wouldn't have been too happy either, having to wait 2 hours later than scheduled .... I also probably would've said some things to Riley Cooper about the Canes/Crocs baseball game from last year with his dirty slide. I still can't let that go

I do like Joe Haden though. He's the only Croc I can stand. I'd love to have him on the Bucs. If the Bucs can't get Suh or McCoy - I'd rather have Suh - then in my fantasy football world, I'd hope they could trade down for a 2nd or 3rd round pick and get Joe Haden

Ya, I wouldn't mind having Eric Berry either, but, the Bucs have a need more at CB than Safety, to replace Ronde Barber and Haden fits the type of CB the Bucs need in their Tampa 2


j.w.

six- Cowherd described Tebow as a "Poor man's Vince Young" today. Young can be effective so the comparison may not be fair for Young, but I agree with his (and Henne's) sentiment.

raizacane

For those gamers out there......God Of War III is less than 12 hours away from being released.

Ungar

Six, just thanking you for yesterdays point that the Canes hadn't come back from behind in the last six innings all this year. You reverse jinxed it, and the Canes won last night in the bottom of the ninth.

Should have been a passed ball instead of a wild pitch though, catcher's fault instead of pitcher's fault, IMO.

Six

Vinny Testaverde is going to be on the staff and help the QBs at Jesuit High School here in Tampa

Must be nice

Lakewood Ranch High School just south of Tampa gets Ken Dorsey to help them and Jesuit in Tampa gets Vinny

Former Bucs and Jets Cornerback, Donnie Abraham, is the head coach at Gibbs High School in St.Pete

Nice to see these guys helping the kids out in that capacity

Aquaman

Posted by: Daytoncane | March 18, 2010 at 01:00 PM

lol, especially the Pitbull and Daddy Yankee reggaeton part. I bet the people of Haiti were overjoyed.

C'mon, BYU keep giving the gator jive


Six

j.w. - was that on the radio or on television?

I'm not in the car to hear Cowherd at the time he is on .. and I think he's actually not on in the Tampa area anymore b/c they moved The Fabulous Sports Blob into his time slot on the ESPN station b/c she (and I use "she" loosely) is on from 12-3pm

j.w.

Radio, six. LOl about the Blob! I haven't heard her in several years on our local stations.

Six

Ungar - hey brah, anything I can do to help the Canes win ha

Especially against ........ Fordham - eeesh

Good to see Harold Martinez worked on his defense from last year - or not. 5 errors in 16 games? Come on kid

Six

j.w. - ya, well, consider yourself lucky

I filled in for her this past Memorial Day here, that's when she was 9am-Noon. I just remember thinking, why does she have so many commercial breaks? I'd start to get talking and get on a roll, then the producer would motion me to go to break .... she has like 8 minute segments, then 3 minutes of commercials.

She's now been moved from Noon-3pm

I'd never seen her in person, until last year on a remote show that I co-hosted. Wow. I feel kinda bad for saying this, considering what she's been through - but man, she is anti-skinny ... I'm talking, big and waddley (if that's even a word)


She kinda reminded me of this guy:

http://www.dreamagic.com/vivianrose/spawn.gif

But with sunglasses and not the Braveheart blue face paint

Like I said, I feel bad for saying that considering what she's been through, but I'm only reporting the truth


Aquaman

Gator still taking jive, Boyton got crossed up bad lol.

Old Skool

ASK THE BOY SCOUTS TO DE-MERIT FISHING

PETA is calling on the Boy Scouts of America to retire its "Fishing" and "Fish and Wildlife Management" merit badges. Fishing is no longer considered a benign activity. It is hunting in the water, and the idea of a scout armed with a gun or rod, setting out to actively attack animals who were minding their own business, is not in keeping with the image of scouting.

http://www.peta.org/feat/merit/index.html

Hopefully, there'll be a nude protest ... maybe Bar Rafaeli in a squid bikini.

j.w.

That photo is scary, six! Wow, I'm still laughing about it (I'm trying not to, really) :)

Old Skool

Don't know where you find your photos Six but that one is creepy. It looks like someone addicted to meth and Viagra.

Six

Old Skool - mannnnn, ha, when I first read ASK THE BOY SCOUTS TO DE-MERIT FISHING

I thought it read ASK THE BOY SCOUTS TO DE-MERIT FIS*ING

I think you know what I thought the "h" was


I'm down with the Imogen Bailey PETA ads that have her covering her bits with rabbits

Daytoncane

Aqua,

i hope you still know that we're going undefeated in college basketball next year.

that wasn't a "real UM team" out there this past season, and plus we had a ton of injuries.

when these kids grow up they'll be unbeatable and teams will be afraid to put us on their schedule again.

just check out all the quotes from Haith in the paper. you can tell he has a plan and wants to win more than anybody. he's doing everything right.

i thought you would enjoy that.

Hurriphin302-4-305

Guess Chad Henne better sleep with the front lights on........

Methinks an angry, smelly un-washed mob of br-ousins might be headed down I-95 South tonight.

Old Skool

Six I don't know why I read your posts. They often send me down tangents I'd rather not go.
Your latest got me thinking about new applications for the scout sign (three fingers together usually pointed straight up)

Six

Old Skool - that's funny what you said about not reading my posts b/c they'll take you places you'd rather not go

I used to get that a lot from chicks, from when I was in 4th grade up until just a few years ago (Miss Six just needs me to look at her and it's over). For some reason, I could talk them into doing pretty much anything

Ya man, the Scouts should adapt the shocker

I think Arizona State actually does that sign .. or at least that's what I see when they do it

Aquaman

Posted by: Daytoncane | March 18, 2010 at 02:13 PM

I wanna add that there's depth everywhere. A healthy Scott and some protection and we maybe lose a game all year.

Alright, I'm out to work

Real hard next couple of weeks .. watching March Madness while getting paid (not much). That's why I never really complain about my job, I'm lucky and I appreciate it
