GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Miami’s Dale Carey and North Carolina’s Parks Jordan have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Players of the Week, while Clemson’s Daniel Gossett picked up ACC Pitcher of the Week honors for the second time this season.

Carey, a senior outfielder from Marietta, Georgia, powered Miami to its fourth consecutive ACC road sweep this past weekend, leading the Hurricanes with a .429 batting average in three games against Duke (6-for-14). Carey, who hit his first career grand slam in Saturday’s 9-1 victory, led the team in RBIs on the weekend (six) and was a perfect 3-for-3 in stolen base attempts. He delivered a game-tying RBI single early in game three, and jumpstarted a key game-tying rally later in the game with a leadoff double off Duke ace Mike Matuella.

Win on Saturdays and you'll start winning the recruiting battles

FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said he did not consider suspending Jameis Winston from football after he was cited for shoplifting last month.

Fisher said baseball was far more important to Winston at the time of the incident than football.

“He’s in baseball right now,” Fisher said during the ACC spring meetings. “He’s not just a reliever, he’s a closer. This guy is a dominant player now, he’s a huge factor. So taking him off the team for three games until he got that done was a huge [deal], because baseball to him is no different than playing football.”

That would not have been the case, however, if Winston were not in the midst of baseball season.

“If he had been in football only, he would have been suspended for football-related activities until he took care of all those things,” Fisher said. “We did address other issues, yes. But to him, that’s just as devastating.”

FSU baseball coach Mike Martin suspended him until he completed his community service, which entailed doing janitorial work at the North West YMCA in Tallahassee.

YEAH I AM SURE HE DID THAT!

Now I gotta go find out who the Director of the NW YMCA in Tally is. LOL

Can't find a YMCA staff directory on their site?

The board of trustees at Duke University approved a $15 million project to renovate Wallace Wade Stadium over the weekend.

After the 2014 season, construction workers will remove the track and lower the playing surface. New field-level seating will be added.

As you can see, the appearance of Wallace Wade Stadium will largely improve.
Coming off a 10-win season, David Cutcliffe and athletic director Kevin White are raising the bar. In fact, Cutcliffe believes that it’s entirely possible that ESPN’s College GameDay will broadcast LIVE from outside Wallace Wade Stadium in the near future.

Terrance Sullivan

Let's keep it going Canes baseball team U making us all proud.

NativeCane

Yeah me and old skool considered putting on a skit for those church boys camping next to us where I chased him around with the chainsaw with him screaming bloody murder!

Dem Canes!!

Dude on a Pale Horse

I don't follow the baseball team much so I have to ask, do we play F$U and if so is there an oppotunity to bean Jameis Winston a few times?

Montreal-Cane

Great to see Canes baseball and the coaching staff back on track with the program after 5 bad years...Recruiting and the coaching have been much better lately. Like Peyton say: "OMAHA"!!!

Terrance Sullivan

The Dude Yes we play FSU and most likely would meet them in the ACC Tourney maybe in the NCAA's after that.

That campsite ranger was just itching to start some crap…..then he realized we were Canes fans and he backed down

Old Skool

It would have be great, Native – Me running around screaming at the top of my lungs being chased by a chain saw wielding maniac who in turn would have been chased by Raizecane dressed as a priest throwing balloons filled with holy water and shouting “the Power or Christ compels you”

Yepp, we would have scared the daylights out of them with our guerilla theater version of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets the Exorcist.

Dude, only 3 more games remaining in the season, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, at home gainst North Carolina.
ACC Championship begins a week from tomorrow and surely Cane pitchers will face the Noles own seafood Yogi Bear! LOL

Dem Canes!!!

The Strive For 5 meaning the Strive for the 5th National Title for those that only know about Canes Football. Canes Baseball are 4 time National Champs 1982, 1985, 1999, and 2001. That's right the Baseball and Football both won the title in 2001. I would love for that to happen again.

NFL Draft: the record 36 early entries who didn't get picked‏

James Wilder Jr. entered the draft dreaming of NFL riches but wound up among the record 36 early entries who didn't get picked

Will next year's juniors learn?

86Cane

Ohio...Heat looks vulnerable?

Monty...they will never learn because they are clueless and have BAD advisors.

At times last week, it was hard to get past the NFL Draft freak out of the moment.

Johnny Freefall dropped.

Michael Sam languished.

Texas flat out got skunked.

Those situations either were -- or will be -- rectified. (Assuming Texas gets another player drafted. The Longhorns didn't have a player selected for the first time since 1937.) Perhaps the most overlooked story of draft weekend, though, was record unemployment. That came after a record 98 underclassmen declared for the draft resulting in a record 36 such players going unselected.

That's a failure rate of almost 40 percent.

"They aren't ready," said Ray Anderson, Arizona State's AD. "They think they are."

Anderson has an up-close view, having arrived at ASU in January from the NFL where he was executive vice president of football operations.

"I think you're going to have a lot more guys disappointed than ever before. It's going to take a class or two for that to happen before [realization] kicks in."

Ohio_Cane

86, they ARE vulnerable when Wade plays awful. Too many bad plays, some resulting in TO's. Lebron does mask that vulnerability by being amazing, tho.

CaneRock

The refs were making some phantom ass calls tonight. But even though they tried to take it away, we #WONANYWAY!

Ohio_Cane

Word is that 2015 CB Rashad Fenton will commit to UM soon

Ohio_Cane

Fenton is a take, in case U were wondering. Legit kid. Not ranked high enough.

herbieibis

Lurker,
The Herb saw your snide little comment from the previous blog about McCray gaining a whopping 75lbs on his bench in one month. You said you gained 50 on yours in about 6 weeks, I can see that happening but not 75 lbs in one month, No way, at least not without some help. I lift as well and I made gains of 25 lbs in a month, in my ute.

Lurker

Herbie,

Didn't mean for it to be personal or to come at you that strongly, but nobody has any idea what's actually happening with that, so why assume the worst about one of our own kids and put that nonsense out there for public consumption

I'm telling you, if you dedicate yourself and become a workout warrior with the bars, you'd be amazed what can be accomplished in a few weeks. It's not unheard off, even without steroids. You could do it with religious lifting of free weights every day, appropriate legal supplements, high quality protein to bolster recovery and repair, excellent technique, a solid lifting plan, and good partners in the gym. You also have to be YOUNG.

It's been done.

So let's not assume that about one of our own.

CaneRock

I was more surprised that McCray was only benching 240 to begin with. At 216, if He was dedicated to a dedicated HS weight program, He should've at least been 1 rep maxing 300 last Summer.

That LBJ will be good one day. How about Pierce and his defensive request to attempt to guard LBJ? At least he held him under 50, lol.

I'm not gonna pretend to know anything about McCray's personal life, but U know as well as I do some of these kids nutrition plans at school/home are not good enough to gain weight/muscle no matter how much they work out.

@richarddeitsch: Looks like there will be a 30 For 30 follow up on Miami called The U: Part 2 (working title)

I agree, but still, 240 is not a good max for a kid that size...IF max is what He was referring to. The only other thing I can surmise, is that maybe He had an injury, that prohibited Him from lifting, and maybe that injury minimized any gains that He was making in the weight room.

CaneRock

But then again, this is SF we're talking about. Being that SF doesn't have middle school football, most of these kids don't see a weight room till they get to HS.
