Question...is Lake Osceola saltwater or brackish? I remember being by the music building in the early 90s looking down at it and I swear I saw several barracuda floating near the surface. There was also a time that a manatee apparently turned up in there.

thirstybuzzardcane

^^^^I'm pretty sure it's freshwater, Soup would probably know better. You might of saw an alligator gar which might look like a barracuda.

Go Canes!

There are gar and snakeheads in those lakes now. Even freshwater tarpon.

Could have been any of those.

Don't ever remember hearing about cudas being in any brackish lakes.

Lur-ker

I personally have never seen a cuda or an alligator gar there, I admit that I thought it was a nice feature but never thought that deeply about it when I was a student or afterwards when I've visited campus.

I DID know it was manmade and assumed it was fresh, but I suppose it could be somewhat brackish. Here's an interesting article from the Miami Hurricane:

According to that article it is connected to biscayne bay, and does have barracuda!

TonyCane

Awesome...that solves a 23 year mystery for me then. Fairly certain that it was a group of large barracudas (I've seen alligator gar and these were different). Fascinated to read that two American crocodiles were living there a few years ago. Shouldn't those have been removed as a threat to students? Some of the walkways alongside the lake, especially by where the architecture building was at in the 90s were fairly close to the water.

TonyCane

CaneRock...I once saw what I presume was a water moccosin being dispatched by workers alongside the lake in the early 90s

Lur-ker

Water moccasins can be found inland in Florida anywhere there's water, like lakes, canals, etc. So it wouldn't be a shock for there to be one there.

In reading that article, I learned stuff I never knew. Like I had no idea that it eventually connected to Biscayne Bay. That would explain the variable salinity and finding both fresh and salt water species.

CIS:

Jim Harbaugh up the Recruiting Game to a New Level

Harbaugh's ties to Paramus Catholic keep growing stronger, and that helps Michigan's recruiting.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has already laid pretty substantial groundwork at Paramus Catholic, the New Jersey school that produced top overall 2016 prospect and Wolverines commit Rashan Gary.

Harbaugh is giving the commencement speech to seniors at the school on Thursday, after he hosts a big satellite camp there on Wednesday.

Now Harbaugh's program will host Paramus Catholic on its own field. The Paladins will open their 2016 season with a game at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 2, which will bring a couple more blue-chip recruits right to Michigan's doorstep.

The Wolverines are recruiting four-star Paramus Catholic linebacker Drew Singleton and defensive tackle Corey Bolds for 2017, plus four-star quarterback Allan Walters for 2018.

They'll all get a nice, close look at the Big House, and it won't count as one of their five "official visits," even though they'll literally be using the same facilities as Michigan's players. In that sense, it's a genius maneuver by Harbaugh.

It's not unusual for high school teams to play games in college stadiums, but it's definitely uncommon for teams to cross state lines (or several state lines) to do it. ESPN noted that, beside Paramus Catholic and its St. Frances (Md.) opponent, 14 other teams were slated to play this year at the Big House, and all were Michigan schools.

Star Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers played at Paramus Catholic, too, and former head coach Chris Partridge is now on Harbaugh's staff. The Wolverines' connection to the school isn't an entirely new thing. It's not going away anytime soon.

I guess you have to go to such extremes when the state of MI is the equivalent of a tipped over porta potty

Let him have Jersey. I just want him out of Florida. Saban is bad enough.

Also, hit me up when he finally wins a ship. In anything.

SinisterCane

At some point Jim Harbaugh's results have to supersede his rhetoric. I would love to watch the Michigan Vs Bama in a kickoff classic

Mr Moneymaker

If I had to venture a guess, he already has people at Michigan who are sick of his shit.

The guy did nothing but win in San Francisco and they couldn't wait to get rid of him. Every indication is he's very petty and vindictive. His tweets and comments are thick with it.

Imagine when he's mixed long term with the academics and administrators in Ann Arbor.

Posted by: Lur-ker | June 10, 2016 at 03:30 PM

Don't think that's happening anytime soon. Only 1 recruit from their 16' recruiting class is from Michigan.

Mr Moneymaker

Posted by: CaneRock | June 10, 2016 at 04:01 PM

Don't know if he's allowed to officially recruit but Devin Bush is very connected down here. He was a nice pick up.

Lur-ker

Didn't dad Bush get a job at U of Mich?

Posted by: TonyCane | June 10, 2016 at 09:04 AM

It is brackish, mainly fresh water to start but also connected to Biscayne Bay via the Coral Gables Waterway that runs through the area and much of Coral Gables.

That means almost all species of fresh and salt water fish could be found in the lake, barracudas included. Manatees would be rare due to access through canals and culverts they would have to pass through to get there, but maybe possible. It is also very possible for there have been gators and/or crocks in the lake at any given time but also not common.

I could give you a tour of Coral Gables that would blow your mind and make your head spin, including the location of the UM President's house which I have been to many times. It would cost you $20 of course but it would be the BEST $20 you ever spent.

Never saw a gator in there. It still blows my mind that there were American crocodiles in there and we did not relocate them. They can get up to 16.5 feet long (and possibly longer) and far outsize most alligators.

12-7, 2 outs and bases now loaded for bc. Killing the pitching staff for the weekend, or at least the relievers' confidence.

Garcia gets the save with strike 3... finally. Canes win!

jcane

Positive of the night: 4 superregional openers tonight and 3 of the 4 have the visiting underdogs either having won or ahead thus far, but the U is the one that held serve. Nice hitting for the U, even with a few blown opps. Pitching in the 9th nearly made me feel like Fred Sanford calling for Elizabeth, but the W happened. Let's win game 2 tomorrow and end the drama with a trip to Omaha.

Main worry is Guerra's confidence on the mound after tonight. Can't have relief pitchers with any loss of confidence. Night, all.

Go Canes!

Cavs regress to the mean, shoot 24% from beyond the arc and this series is officially over.

With the massive glut of unmovable contracts on that roster think it's safe to say their championship window is closed for good.

Shame LeBron thought he could be Pat Riley. Probably cost himself one or two more titles.

Posted by: The Dude | June 11, 2016 at 02:22 AM

Can't say that about this franchise. For decades Riley has always shaped the rosters here with teams capable of winning it all.

He's played Showtime ball with LA, down and dirty with the Knicks and Heat with Zo, then completely overhauled his rosters multiple times to help DWade and LeBron get their rings.

Cleveland will flounder fter this while the Heat will constantly be competitive.

Lots of upsets in super openers, as in 6 of the first 7. Today saw ucsb beat louisville, ok st won, and fsu beat the turds. Much as i hate fsu, still always like to see fu go down. Just waiting on lsu to see the last first game finished. None of it matters though, as the u winning the first game doesn't cover the series. Let's hope high noon works out. So far this baseball season doesn't show anyone looking dominant.

Can't watch that 1988 horrific fumble called vs cleveland gary again. The right call would have caused the u to truly be a dynasty, as winning three straight championships between 1987-1989.

I'm not a huge Trump fan, but Trump has never said anything like this.

You're attributing your prejudiced remarks to him, when he never said anything like that.

There's a lot to be discussed about this, but to say the majority of any group is a certain way, is wrong. Dead wrong.

Do those concealed weapons permits come with crystal balls...you're ignorant as hell.

BEERicane

Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Or some saying like that.

In principle, I'd agree with some level of gun control given the sheer number and degree of these incidents. However, taking away the people's (fire)power vs a government which is not to be trusted -- including the Obama administration! -- could potentially have catastrophic and abusive governmental consequence. Please see Operation Fast and Furious where the (Obama) gov willingly armed the Mexican drug cartels with automatic weapons leading to countless civilian casualties and effectively terrorist takeover of a large region of Mexico. Any government who does such things is never to be trusted on gun control and this administration is perhaps the most guilty.

The Dude

With all due respect RCCF,

I'm not sure how people can't have this conversation.

The Dude

^^^ Muslim isn't a race, it's a religious belief.

The Dude

I support gun control too, but any discussion about gun control needs to be prefaced witb the acknowledgemnt that Americans have a right to so called "assault weapons."

Actually runner at first was safe, should have been a fielder's choice RBI, bit runner slid into second, so they're calling the third out and no run plated. Still 5-3
