Don't know, Upnorth, but nothing surprises me when you have some combination of ahtletes, women, and babies are in the same story.

Well, one thing that will be different from the previous two GT-UM games, GT called of the dogs two years ago, UM called off the dogs last year. Paul Johnson is stressing out about Randy's chop block comments, and Randy is feeling the soup (no relation) getting a little too hot for him, he is in need of a "statement" game that is not like the statement Virginia left on the bottom of his shoes.

Bruce Feldman Q&A:
From FSegal527: How much longer do you think the Randy Shannon tenure continues at Miami?

I suspect through 2011, but it could depend on how his team finishes this season out. This group may be inexperienced in places, but it has underachieved if you look at the receivers, who are not young, or even the D-line, which at times has been great but very average otherwise.

If they end up losing five games, even having played a true freshman QB, that's going to be a tough sell in spite of all of the positive things he's done for the program off the field. Going into the season, it seemed anything 9-3 or worse would be disappointing, considering both the FSU and VT games are in Miami.

The biggest problem this team has had is consistency, and that falls on the coaching staff. The Hurricanes didn't look ready to play against FSU on a Saturday night, which was inexcusable, and then they said they took UVA too lightly. Again, inexcusable. That was the excuse they gave for the Wisconsin loss last year.

Go 8-4 and then win the bowl game and I think Shannon's probably safe. But with each lackluster performance, his base is eroding.

Umike thanks I really appreciate it.
The builder I told you said wanted to take me has company, so I guess my ticket went to one of them he never invited me again.

I will be over in SC Saturday morning, looking at a job, and stopping by the NOC outfitters if I get time.
I will be back at my house by halftime I think. thanks again,
Enjoy the game, and have a safe trip.


UMike

solar..no problem...but for anyone else..I might have 1 exta ticket available for the GT game..let me know

Ungar

solar, here is an old joke for you. In fact, it was the first radio joke.

Do you have a dog?
No, but I am thinking of getting a pet porcupine.
Porcupine, do they make good pets?
They have their points.....

Dallas Crawford is Michigan bound. Hurricanes don't start turning up the heat on some of these recruits, there won't be anyone left. Marcus Jackson, stated he was concerned about how the O-line was performing, especially with all the penalties and is exploring other options. I know this class was going to be small anyway but we've got less than 3 months and I really don't see to many Miami leans, with some of the big time players left. It's looking like another year of sleepers.

ungar, while everyone else looks at each other with a blank look on there face, I am el oh el,
I still fall of my chair watching the 3 Stooges

orange 'n green in the vein

For those of you who haven't been paying attention this year, VT can't stop the run, UNC plays up to the competition despite who's out or injured, and Coach Davis is superior to Scarface in so many ways it's not even funny. But Boise is SOOO much better than the Heels so it's a moot point.

SlingBlade

Rion Brown's first basket of his career......a straight away 3pter...more to come....canes were down big early in game, but they have stormed back for a tie at the 7:40 mark on back to back threes from brown and grant....

Sebastian

Scott and Grant are keeping the `Canes in it right now

SlingBlade

hey seba...good to see another BB fan out there....those two are solid...

Sebastian

25 of our 36 points, 4 of the 5 assists and 10 of the 14 field goals

They are going to need some help if we want to get some breathing room before the half

Sebastian

Slingblade,
I was checking out the ACC scores and with 17 minutes to go Stetson is leading Wake 45-39

SlingBlade

yeah wake is down but its still early in the 2nd half...i want all ACC teams to win their out of conference games...it will look that much better when we beat them...

SlingBlade

canes down at the half...48-42

Sebastian

Alot of things to tighten up at the half

12 turnovers resulting in 18 points for them

Let them hit 50% from the field

Grant and Scott combine to go 11-17 for 27 points, the rest of the team 5-18

And only down by 6. Clean those up and get the duo some help and a double digit win is on the way

Lets Go `Canes

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina said five people, including former Tar Heels and current New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks, provided "impermissible gifts of cash and jewelry and impermissible assistance" with travel and entertainment expenses.

Nicks, who left Chapel Hill for the NFL after his junior season in 2008, provided $3,300 in benefits, while former UNC players Omar Brown ($1,865) and Mahlon Carey ($140) also were listed.

The news release also mentions San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis ($20) and "a person from Miami whose full name is not known [$323]."

ACC blog

Dinich ESPN.com's Heather Dinich writes about all things ACC in her conference blog.

College Football Nation

The school identified all five people in reinstatement requests sent to the NCAA as part of the process to clear players in the probe.

Nicks responded during Giants practice on Friday.

"I'm not angry at all," he said. "That's college and I'm in the NFL now, and I'm focusing on football."

Brown previously was linked to the investigation when the NCAA suspended cornerback Kendric Burney for six games and safety Deunta Williams for four games. The two players had traveled to California to visit the former UNC safety, who Williams said they had befriended a few years earlier.

The school said the amount -- totaling $5,648 between the five people -- also includes the estimated value of lodging at their homes during visits. Some of those benefits were repaid by the players or hosts before they knew they had broken NCAA rules.

The school also said that while Nicks, Carey and Brown thought they were helping friends and former Tar Heels, "there is no evidence that links them to inappropriate relationships with agents, prospective agents or runners."

Meanwhile, the university has formally broken ties with the tutor linked to the ongoing NCAA investigation of its football program.

In a letter dated Nov. 5 and released Thursday, athletic director Dick Baddour informed Jennifer Wiley of Chapel Hill that the university had learned she provided "impermissible extra benefits" to players, including about $2,000 in travel expenses this year. It also states she "provided impermissible academic assistance" to some student-athletes in 2009 and 2010.

"As a result of your actions, the eligibility status of several of our student-athletes has been adversely affected," it states.

The letter insisted she have no contact with any student-athlete for five years. It bars her from the Kenan Football Center and other campus athletic facilities in any role outside that of as a member of the general public during that time.

Wiley didn't respond to an e-mail from The Associated Press seeking comment Thursday, but Raleigh attorney Joe Cheshire issued a statement on her behalf saying she "acknowledges her role" in the investigation. Cheshire said Wiley allowed a player to use a credit card for a transaction, then was "immediately repaid" for that amount and "never knew this type of transaction was impermissible."

"She gave several years of her life trying to uplift, educate and enhance the lives of student-athletes that she worked with and befriended," Cheshire said. "All of these young men were of the highest caliber. She did not intend for her work to 'provide impermissible academic assistance' and to the extent it did, she is deeply saddened, particularly as it has affected the young men she cared so much about."

The NCAA began looking into agent-related benefits in the program over the summer before expanding the investigation to include possible academic violations involving Wiley, who also had worked as a tutor for coach Butch Davis' teenage son.

Thirteen players sat out the opener against LSU due to the investigation, with six players sitting out the entire season. Three of those were either dismissed from the team or declared "permanently ineligible" by the NCAA.

Five players have returned to game action, while a sixth -- tailback Ryan Houston -- was cleared to return after missing the first five games and had planned to redshirt. But Davis said this week Houston might return for the final three regular-season games after the Tar Heels lost leading rusher Johnny White to a broken collarbone and Shaun Draughn sprained an ankle.

Defensive lineman Michael McAdoo is the only player from the LSU group whose status is still in question. He hasn't played this season. Fullback Devon Ramsay played four games before the school decided to hold him out. He hasn't played since.
