Don't forget garbage time.

Although L can be creative in how he uses players. If he's a tough big body, and turns out to be a decent rebounder that can play some D, L will get him some minutes. But, yeah, I know, those are pretty big IF's

But that wouldn't be this year anyway, because he has to sit. Maybe, and it's a big maybe, he can develop some during his year sitting and practicing

When tapping into the collective unconscious I can almost feel/see that happening and even repeated over and over again. I would like to think so anyway. It is a warm and comforting thought it COULD have happened that way and that it was discussed on Canespace all these years later.

• UM would love 6-5 Lawrence Cager to seize one of the starting receiver jobs, and Mark Richt told him to study elite Cincinnati Bengals receiver AJ Green, who played for Richt at Georgia.

“He wants to see me be consistent and be a dominant big receiver,” Cager said.

Brad Kaaya is encouraged: "He got faster from last year."

Cager can start with catching the f*cking ball. In fact all of our WRs sucked in the spring at simply catching the ball. Kaaya was dealing and there had to be a dozen flat out drops. Unacceptable. Pop Warner teams don't drop that many passes.

THIS JUST IN: Kevin Love has been informed that he won't be medically cleared to play Game 3. (via @ESPNSteinLine)

TonyCane

Read an interesting article this weekend talking about how the SEC and Big 10 will ultimately absorb the ACC and Big 12. The key cited was the conference networks, of which the ACC lacks. There was some dispute in the comments section of how profitable the SEC and Big 10 nets are.

Anyway, how likely do you think it is that the ACC will lose teams (i.e. Clemson and Florida State) to the SEC? Or is it more likely that the Big 12 ultimately implodes?

Personally I would love to see Texas in the ACC so I could go watch the Canes play them.

Player personnel department note

Quick note - some of you have asked about whether or not Miami will hire someone to replace Eric Josephs, who was the assistant director of player personnel under Golden. Larry Scott brought Josephs to Tennessee with him. I don't have a name yet, but I'm told that they will in fact be bringing someone in to fill his former role. No timetable on that yet, but it will happen. Good to see them making a commitment to this department because it makes a difference.

Enjoyed your comments about Washington GC, you are spot on. I have a lot of military in my family, and I was very close to draft for Vietnam...thank God it ended. Nothing against Ali, but I seriously doubt his Muslim beliefs for not going to nam....he just did not want to die....58,000 deaths, 153,000 wounded...for what? A stupid political belief Domino theory....my daughter is marrying a soldier in the fall.....

Representative govt is dead; it does not work at all. These leaders, from Obama to Congress dont care about us....they steal our $ and do what is best for them. Strip away the labels and beliefs.. immigration, education,guns, abortion, gay rights, welfare,all the differences between the two groups of idiots....and see they all hob nob together and take care of each other....screw the people. The overstepping of washington of all things by all sides is sad.....the latest garbage about gender identity is just perversion.....

the death knell is sounding, and America the Beautiful is dying.....Rep Govt is dead, as is the constitution.....due to the so called leaders in both parties...but these forms never last due to the greed of leaders.....and we will become Amerika a dictatorship....I hate the Federal government and allits tentacles....its the worlds biggest social joke.

No, Obama is one of the best, both Bushes just sucked.

CaneRock.... Obamas disengagement from the has allowed Russia and China to increase their spheres of influence and has given a lil group called Isis their own country. Where he has engaged, like Libya, has given Isis even more control.

If you knew your basketball they actually shot well below their average last night. They only had 12 three pointers and they are averaging around 17 per game during the playoffs. They've done it to every team in the playoffs so far. They even broke NBA records against my Hawks!

I even told you that they live and die by the 3. IMO, JR Smith is the key to Clevelands success. If they hit more than 12 threes per game, then there is no stopping Cleveland!

thirstybuzzardcane

Good coaching adjustment by Cleveland's coach last night. I saw a lot of ball screens which freed up JR Smith. I'm sure Golden State will have a answer for that in the next game. If I was Cleveland now, I would run more pick & rolls with Lebron & Mozgov.

Go Canes!

I chuckle every time you post TBC. Literally every time.

They shot nearly 50% from 3 on 25 shot attempts. The only reason it was that few is because the game was out of hand.

It wasn't the number that matters it's how many of them they made.

Do you know what effective shooting percentage is?

You should.

They shot with an efficiency they will have a very, very difficult time duplicating once, forget about three more times in the next four games.

Like I said, if you think they're going to shoot those kind of percentages consistently, more power to you.

But they can't, and they won't.

MaryLou Alumni 1970

Does anyone remember when Muhammed Ali came to the U and addressed all the students? I was there during my U days, from 1966 to 1970. I'm looking to see if I still have pictures. He was so darn handsome, and fit, like no other human being.
What a contrast when I met him again in Sept. 2006, in Louisville, when Richard and I were there for the U football game. What a disgusting loss. So, we went to the Ali Center, which is magical. All of a sudden Ali and his wife come in with the future President Obama, helping him. No Secret Service, etc. and such a fun time.
The contrast from the 60's with Ali at the U and 2006 was dramatic and so sad.

Posted by: Go Canes! | June 09, 2016 at 12:07 PM

You really can't be this stupid can you? They are shooting around 45% from three point land throughout the playoffs!

I've never seen someone so wrong on so many different occasions!

thirstybuzzardcane

I know you hate Cleveland because Lebron fuked the Heat over. Get over it man!

thirstybuzzardcane

^^^^Sorry for calling you stupid, that was out of line! Oblivious would of been a better word!

Mr Moneymaker

IF you knew basketball you'd know that number is boosted by the 50% they shot against the horrible Hawks.

Since then they've shot 41% against Detroit, 38% against Toronto and even after last night a WHOPPING 34% against Golden State.

What indication is there that this continued decrease is going to miraculously reverse?

There isn't any because the percentage they started with was unsustainable against better competition.

But I'm sure you knew that already.

And I could care less about LeBron. It sucked when it happened, I loved watching that once in a lifetime player here for the four best years he had in him.

But that has nothing to do with the fact Golden State has dominated the Cavs for two straight seasons, has a far better team and is going to beat them in this series.

Richt quotes today

On satellite camps -

“I really believe that if a young man wants to come to Miami, he will come see us. I don’t want to wear my coaching staff out. Like I said, we had 168 opportunities to go and see everybody we thought we needed to see and we did that. We’ve invited guys to come see us at these camps and throughout the summer for unofficial visits and a bunch of them are coming. I’ve learned over the years that if you don’t get them on campus, the chance you get them is pretty slim.”

On reception from HS coaches over the spring -

“It’s been great, it’s been great. I haven’t heard anything but outstanding reviews. I’ve had coaches text me after some of our coaches go to campus and just say ‘hey, Ron Dugans just came through and I’m really excited about the direction of your program’. I get that on all of them, even my own son every once in a while. We’ve been very well received. I got out on the road during the contact period in January to a lot of the schools as well. Obviously seeing guys we had committed and also guys we were trying to recruit, but also just going to schools that have 2017s, 2018s, and beyond. So I got a chance to meet a lot of coaches then. We did clinics in Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade. Coaches clinics in the spring so we met a lot of coaches then. We had coaches come visit us, we called it Cane talk, on Wednesday nights. It allowed coaches to come in and talk football. I told the coaches today, ‘if you ever want to come on our campus, just give us a little heads up and we’ll talk ball or do whatever you want’.


On his philosophy with offers -

“Well, if you offer a guy a scholarship and he commits, I don’t want to turn around and say ‘I don’t want you anymore’. I don’t like that. I’m not saying things like that don’t happen sometimes and there could be reasons for that. There could be an academic reason or a behavioral reason, or something happens that’s unforeseen. As a policy, when we offer a guy I want it to be one that we would accept if they chose to come. That’s a big part of it. I think a lot of schools, especially not in the state, can offer as many as they want. Then if they don’t take that kid that year, they don’t have to come back to that school if they don’t want. I’m not saying everybody is doing it, but you’ll see a lot of out of state schools come in and offer a boatload of guys and sort it out later. I just want our evaluation process to be really sound where the position coach wants him, and the coordinator wants him. I want that kid to know that we are really sincere, so that’s kind of how we’re rolling right now.”

2. Miami Hurricanes

Mark Richt won two conference titles at Georgia, and although that wasn't enough for Bulldogs fans, Miami faithful who are eager for a championship taste would be thrilled with an ACC title and playoff contention.

Coach, can you talk about the Richt hire?

"He's going to do a great job. To me, they're a sleeping giant. What Miami has done and how they've tried to run their offense is what Georgia has done. It's a great hire, and it's going to get them back in the mix." -- ACC defensive coach

Miami has earned a reputation as one of the more confounding programs in the FBS, playing like a title contender one week and falling flat the next. Last season? A 10-point win vs. Virginia Tech followed by a 58-point pummeling by Clemson. That has plagued Miami for a decade.

Coach, can you talk about the Canes' inconsistency?

"At times, they play with anyone and look like 'The U,' and other times, they've cashed in their chips and are ready to go home. You didn't know what Miami you'd get. That won't happen with Richt." -- ACC offensive coach

The Canes keep signing blue-chip defensive line recruits with impressive résumés, but those players are not producing once they arrive in Coral Gables. Only once since 2011 has the defense finished in the top 50 nationally in sacks.

Coach, can you talk about the group Craig Kuligowski inherits?

"They're talented, but when you identify them, I don't know how hard they play. I don't know if it was because of the situation with the coach, but you didn't get the traditional effort of a Miami team." -- ACC defensive coach

Miami hot on the trail of Bradley Jennings, Jr.

The Miami coaching staff is attempting to achieve a difficult feat. Flip a Florida State legacy commitment from North Florida.

The Hurricanes have made Bradley Jennings, Jr. (Jacksonville Sandalwood) a priority at the linebacker spot in this recruiting cycle. Jennings, whose father played linebacker at FSU as well, describes himself as "an every down. linebacker who can play sideline-to-sideline."

The rival programs are vying for his services and he has not closed the door on the Canes just yet.

"Florida state is on me very hard. Miami is on me extremely hard too and I'm still listening to them, but right now I'm committed to Florida state," he said.

The 6-2, 225-pound linebacker from Jacksonville on why he chose the Seminoles: "I like how many All-Americans they've had and the championships," he said.

Jennings, Jr. added about Miami, "I like everything about it. I'm very interested


Although his father is a former Nole, it seems like Miami is trying to use that relationship to their relationship.

"The defensive coordinator Manny Diaz was at Florida State when my dad was there so he knows a lot about him," Jennings, Jr said. "Coach Hartley is my dad's guy. They've hung out a couple times in Jacksonville already so they're getting tight."

"My dad wouldn't be upset with any decision I make because he knows if Miami is the best situation for me, then it's the right choice. Same thing with Florida State. He is open to anything."

One of the reasons it appears that Jennings, Jr. is considering Miami is the fact that he is in town a good amount. His father is originally from Carol City High School. Jennings, Jr visited Miami campus in April and will be back again over the summer. He plans to visit school in July when he will be in the city.

"I'm always in Miami. I'll be in Miami the whole month of July. I go every other month," he said. " I'm comfortable because of that and the coaching staff."

"I think they're gonna do a really good job. I've checked their backgrounds and they can really coach."

Jennings, Jr. said he plans on visiting Florida State, Louisville and Michigan as well.

And although Jennings, Jr plays in North Florida, he thinks his trips to Miami have experienced his style of play.

"I really do play like a South Florida guy. The mentality is just different down south. I get to be around them so I know what it's like."

Miami Baseball's Zack Collins Picked 10th Overall by Chicago White Sox


JCane

Congrats to Zack Collins, SC. Hopefully the stress of any draft worrying can be behind him not, freeing him up to focus on just playing baseball. Who knows? It still beats having the draft in the middle of the CWS like it used to be, which really distracted the players.

Any guesses as how long it will be (or if?) before Zack is in the bigs?
