Earlier this season many long-time, knowledgeable and dedicated University of Miami baseball fans had all but written off the 2011 Hurricane baseball team.
Others complained about the Hurricanes paltry batting average against at best merely average competition.
A few even argued that UM head coach Jim Morris might be too old or too tired to keep pace with the other teams in the ACC.
Miami is now 11-3 in the ACC and 21-11overall after sweeping NCST this weekend at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field in Coral Gables.
Jimmy "Youngblood" Morris has the Canes playing sharp and at a very high level since his return from gall bladder surgery. He has made good decisions and has the team on the right track.
We had the opportunity to meet Jim The Younger in Fort Myers before the game against FGCU (see below) and even asked him a few quick questions.
To us and many others who have been around UM baseball for many years, Morris seemed as dedicated and motivated as ever.
J-Mo was bold enough to move Harold Martinez from third to first and Brad Fieger from first to third. This season Morris has changed the lineup order several times, has dealt with injuries to key players and has had the UM pitching staff operating at peak performance since opening day.
If the Canes can continue their current winning course then Jimmy The Younger may just give you something to cheer about come May or June.
Only time will tell...
