Good job Este!

Fighting Ibis

This is going to be a long summer.


Native knocks it outta da park!

Hey Canechic, what's shakin'?




Crazy busy! 5 more classes after this semester so I am turning into a school and work machine!


I guess this draft proves Haith recruited better football players than Coker did..


DZ8...your article will be posted on Wednesday night at 7 PM. Thanks for being patient and supportive of Canespace!



Cool... I can post! Systems must be down! Take that... The Man.


Nice Esteban

I could see Trump and... I guess just Trump making a team or at least a teams practice squad.

I don't think Moncur will ever be football healthy and even if he is he is the definition of a tweener. Too small for DE and too slow for OLB.

Randy Phillips just never showed me enough right up until the Wisconsin game. I remember commenting to myself... It's still the seniors who are letting us down on the field. I heard he was a great role model and leader in the locker room so really appreciate his service to The U. But like Glen Cook, maybe you'll be a better coach than player.

Joe Joseph might be able to sneak unto a practice squad like big Dixon did up here in DC (Dixon might've made the actual squad) once he gets some better coaching (like Dixon did w/Palermo for the Skins).

Love Tervaris. He never complained that I heard of and just kept plugging away and helping the team. He really came thru big time his senior year but I think his playing days are over.

Pipho... he'll be a good doctor. Thanks for the effort.

All the other ones you know how I feel and we'll "argue" about them later.


Feels so good to be able to post at work... I better enjoy it while I can:)


Nice job Este... (love the Chris Berman style nicknames!)

It'll be interesting to see where they all end up...


but we'll make up for lost time with multiple 1st rounders (Allen Bailey, Leonard Hankerson, Travis Benjamin, and Orlando Franklin).

I dont see travis benjamin leaving early!

LMAO at the draft summary for Pipho!!!!!

Playa..The Blogger Formerly Known as Rashad

I thought Sam would get drafted in either the 6th or 7th round, but after the recent arrest, I bet he has to go the free agent route.


Nice analysis Este,

If I had a choice I'd rather be a free agent and choose where I want to be than get drafted in the 6th or 7th rd and have less of a chance of making a team..

"If I had a choice, I'd rather be a free agent and choose where I want to be"... Aqua

Not bad... WaterMan or is that TurquoiseMan?... I get confused


Pipho will have the longest most successful professional career out of that list.

Cat 5 Cane

Don't have a feel who might bail in 2011 but the lock-out is going to effect allot of people, from the vendors sell popcorn to the players children, wondering why Daddy's home in the summer.

I don't see it lasting more then a couple of weeks, but the owners seem prepared to let it extend.


Waterman works, cat.

Solar, you're right, and Pip will probably handle his money better.


Any news on the recruiting front? Got a few blue chippers high on the Canes according to espn's top 150 watch list. Supercooper, where u at?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

LOL, LOVE those nicknames for Sharpton and Fox. hahaha

And the funniest piece is that he'll make the most money unless Graham becomes a monster and re-ups for $15M.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Then again, isn't Sharpton a finance major. He could go back to b-school and make moves.


Duke maybe the national champs, but Butler University is the People's Champ tonight...

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Why isn't Duke the people's champ?? Butler did their best and everyone's proud of them but Duke is the most complete team in the land this year. Hat's off. That's what the game's about.


Happy for Coach K. Stand up guy, great coach.

Mr Troutman

Matt Pipho: He'll be a doctor soon.



I, for one, am proud of Pipho. Maybe he wasn't blessed with the most physical ability, but he worked hard and did his best. It may not have been good enough on every play, but beleive me, Randy would not have put him out there if it wasn't his best option.

So, good for him. I doubt he gives the NFL a serious go. Nothing wrong with being a Cane doctor, Cane financier (Sharpton), or whatever.

I know there's a couple that loved to bash him (them) but I'm sure Randy got them to give their best.

Remember, most of these kids, even from 2001-2003 teams DO NOT end up playing football.

I support them in their future careers. I can tell you that the ones that I know are out in the business world, that you never hear about, are great men and have succesful careers.

Go Canes!

Cat 5 Cane

To the silent majority... Morning guy's

Sebastian(2001U G.O.A.T.)

Good job on the list Esteban

Sharpton might find himself going a touch higher

I know next years list was just thrown out there

I dont see LeHank going in this 1st round. IMO he might of been beter of testing the waters this year.





The difference is that the Hurricanes prepare their players for a CAREER, not just for football. Matt Pipho didn't light up the football field, but he lit up his classroom, like many of these Randycanes did, and so he is moving on to Med school.

Dwayne Johnson for another example learned showmanship at UM, which led to a new career in wrestling, which then led to being a successful actor with plenty of TV time, this generation's Burt Reynolds.

Yes, I know, more Gators get on TV than Canes and Noles combined. They sure are proud of that.

The difference is that the Gators get on TV when their arrest is reported.

It's True.


Sebastian - he would have had the 'one year wonder' tag if he came out this year after struggling so much his first two years.


Ungar - a lot more 'turd pics to. One from the front one from the side.

Timmy needs to pray harder.




Sam Shields will be drafted people probably in the 6th or 7th round. Way too much speed and athleticism. Who cares about his recent "harmless" so called crime that he committed. Without a doubt he has the tools to be decent in the league. Anybody remember Bruce Johnson?


My two cents:

By the way going from UNC last year to Duke this year. What is the best conference in basketball? ACC baby..shout out to NC we have some very good basketball players in this state. I grew up with several that could of been stars at the Div-1 LEVEL but so many failed to see the big picture and got caught up in the streets. It is just amazing all the talent in this state for basketball and most importantly the love for the game. Congrats to Duke for KEEPING the title in NC....

Cause it sounded like more than half the stadium was rooting for Butler.

Duke was the peoples champ back in the day, but those days are over..


Also did you notice that none of the starting 5 from Duke were from NC? It probably takes a good ammount of money to recruit at the level that Duke does...


Curiouser and curiouser...



From Scout.com via The Bleacher Report:

16. Shawnbrey McNeal, SMU 5-9, 194 (Jr.)
After doing the near impossible and putting up big rushing numbers in a June Jones passing offense, he had to leave early to help take care of some family issues. While he was a Texas state champion sprinter, he timed shockingly slow (a 4.53) for a player of his size (or lack of it). He’s faster on the field with a great burst through the hole and the hands to be used in a variety of ways in the passing game. While he’s not going to be an every-down back by any means, he could find a role as a third down back.
CFN Projection: Sixth Round

17. Javarris James, Miami 6-0, 212
A good prospect who had a decent career and a strong combine, running a 4.53 while coming up with 21 reps on the bench, the problem is that he doesn’t have any special running skills. Durability has been an issue and was always nicked and dinged, and he never had to do more than carry the ball a little bit here and there; he was never a workhorse. He’s a good, tough runner who tries hard, blocks well, and won’t dog it in any way, but he has to show a spark in some way to find a regular role.
CFN Projection: Fifth Round

francis w

anyone notice in the DUKE / West Va game not one of the starting players were from the state the schools were in. Mastly Ny & Jersey for WV.


Per Huggins' past record...wanna bet that none of the WVA players graduate...?

Mr Troutman

My LOF are Berry/ Ray Ray put it down 86...Peace!!!


Fran, I noticed that. The Northeast got ballers. Thats why I'm still optimistic about Haith, he can get kids from that region.


My LOF are Berry/ Ray Ray put it down 86...Peace!!!

The ninth-ranked University of Miami baseball team - winners of five straight and 10 of their last 12 - will take on FAU twice this week with games in Boca Raton on Tuesday and Coral Gables on Wednesday. Tuesday night's game is slated for a 6:30 p.m. first pitch at the FAU Baseball Stadium.

The Hurricanes improved to 20-7 overall and 10-2 in ACC play this past weekend with a series sweep over Wake Forest at Alex Rodriguez Park. The series win marked Miami's fourth straight against an ACC opponent to open league play. The 10-2 conference start is the second-best since the `Canes joined the ACC, as the 2008 Hurricanes started 11-1 in their first 12 before going on to win the ACC Championship and advance to Omaha.

The games this week will mark the second and third meetings between Miami and FAU this year, after the `Canes beat the Owls, 12-5, last Wednesday in Coral Gables.


Miami will hit the road for the third time in four weekends when the `Canes make their northernmost trip of the year to play Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., April 9-11. Game one of the three game series at English Field is slated for 5:30 p.m. Friday night.

After winning all four games last week - including the series sweep over Wake Forest - the Hurricanes moved into Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's Top 10 on Monday, moving up to No. 9 in its poll. The Hurricanes were last ranked in the Top 10 by one of the major polls the week of April 13-19 last season.


So whats the word on the injury front? Everybody healing nicely??
