Randy Shannon and President Bush...

Loco

JC that was your write-up right? Great job


So is it agreed now that Hernandez should be held for game 2? lol

OCALACANE

9th

SOUP

YES, Blog by JC...forgot the credits. Be right back!

Loco

btw soup congrats on the CBS thing...

who's going to be at regionals?

AvaCane96

i will try to make the final game of regionals...students can still just get in wit the Cane card right?

Loco

Don't know that yet. Have somebody emailing them to ask, hopefully hear back tomorrow. I hope so, I don't want to spend $10. but will if i have to.... But Canecards guarantee us entry even if its sold out...

busy_cane

Nice link Jack on the White House visit. That must be a thrill.

A few comments.

1) 3 of 5 coaches have direct ties in one form or another to Miami (Go Canes!)

2) It's the White House, Coach Shannon, you should really have worn a necktie.

3) Charlie Weiss is so large, that even though he had on a suit, he is to big to button it.

-cheers

busy_cane

Just needed to get off one insensitive post before the night was through.

-cheers

Loco

Did anybody else notice that Coach Shannon has a look of "hurry up, i'm wasting my time here..."?

Montreal-Cane

Chris Hernandez should be the starter for the first game on friday...9 days after his last start...last wednesday against Clemson...

Montreal-Cane

JC nice feature!

Peace!

Go Canes!

Loco

Idk monty, I think we need him more in game two against probably Mizzou...

dj moonbat

"Randy Shannon and President Bush..."

They must have a lot to talk about, what with the way they both conquered personal adversity through indomitable will and hard work.

orange 'n green in the vein

The White House stacked all the Hurricanes together behind Bush then let Jabba the Hut blabber on incoherently at the photo op. What gives? Let Mr. Preseason #1 in the Nation speak instead of the Leprechaun's coach, George.

Montreal-Cane

Loco it's important to make sure you win this first game and you cannot rest your star pitcher for too long...9 days is long enough...But Morris will make the best decision, i am sure...

Peace!

Loco

Monty I know, but I think its better if he throws a sim game or something tomorrow and then holds off til saturday, because Mizzou (or Ole Miss for that matter) are both much better opponents than BCC

Loco

And that's true... When in doubt, Morris knows best!

Montreal-Cane

Larry Templeton NCAA commissioner chair div.1 for college baseball= A real joke

Why don't you have the same system as in basketball...You are not even rewarded for finishing no.1 in the nation...Ridiculous...But
like Alonso said bring in the best teams...we like it this way!

And like solar said earlier:

If we are as good as we seem, who cares who we eliminate first second or third?

Let's go Canes! It's us against the world!

Montreal-Cane

Loco taking into consideration the last month of the regular season and the ACC
tournament should Garcia be our no.2 pitcher
in the rotation or you still go with Erickson???

Calvin

In baseball, often times you always start your best pitcher in game 2 or 3, in this case, game 2 is when you start your best pitcher. You don't want to loose game 1 with your best pitcher, and than have to go into game 2 hoping the next best one can pull it off.

Besides, the thinking is real simple, if you win the 1st game with your 2nd best pitcher, the second game should be a lil easier to almost automatic as automatic can be in baseball.

As far as shannon goes, it would have been good if he was wearing a white suit withgreen and orange pin stripes.

Loco

I think I would say Garcia... But I think Erickson should go out against BCC to get his bearings, maybe get some confidence back. Game 3 will be just as hard as game 2, so we'll need Garcia then I think...

Is that a sponsorship I see?

loco,
yea I saw it early today on the news.
It looked like Shannon was muttering "thank God i'm not coaching Army or Navy.

Nice write up Jc, I could tell soup didn't get a chance to muddy it up.
write here write often

pb, we is blogging on the big leagues now huh?

What the hell is that Tar Heel blue pattern?
It looks just like the side of the tiny Dixie cups in my bathroom, and I'm not joking
peace

Montreal-Cane

Calvin we all have good arguments but remember in The ACC tournament, Hernandez
pitched the first game against Clemson (30-26)and the second game was against a much better team Georgia Tech...

It will be interesting to find out what Coach Morris will decide...

Peace!

JC

Solar, by no means do I think the Canes can or should lose, and I resent the accusation of Cokerization. You can accuse me of being a communist or a satan worshiper, but good lord man, a Cokerist??

In all seriousness, I don't have a problem with a tough schedule. I like it when the football team has a tough schedule and I want them to play the best team available in the bowl game.

That being said, the idea of a seeded tournament is to reward regular season results. Since it was a committee and not a computer that did that, I feel the Canes got hosed. Proper respect was NOT given to their stellar regular season.

But come one come all, I think the Canes can and will beat every team in this country. Regardless, it's all amazing competition in Omaha, so a tough road should have them battle hardened by then.

Mizzou isn't so great beyond Crow, tho they were #4 for a long while. Ole Miss definitely underachieved. I don't think you can look at their past results as a gauge of the challenge they pose for the Canes. There's talent there.

solarcane

JC,
thanks, I respect everything you share baseball wise.
I realize you delve into it a lot more than the common fan, me included.
LMAO the Cokerist wasn't aimed at you bro.
It was a general blanket observation about how all of us find some reason to be uneasy since the rise and fall of Turf Face and Jitters.
I still twitch when I type their nicks.
