Will be a FB at UM. Maybe short yardage back. Mo Hagens type.

CaneRock

I'm callin' it...

UM-75
Stanford-71

NIT CHAMPS BABY!

JCane

For those who are following the NIT, Stanford is a 1.5 point favorite at the moment. I wonder what the line would have been with Jekiri in? No matter. This team doesn't like being favored or ahead in the first 2/3 of the game.

JCane

Just saw your post, CR. Hope you're right. You might as well bet the over on the over/under line (134.5) while you're at it!

When is Ohio going to start keeping us all up to date on coach L's recruiting? :)

JCane...while TJ's presence will be missed, I still think UM has a lineup that can give Stanford fits. Defensively, I think UM should put some type of press on em', they're ball-handlers look suspect.

Since Coach L and his staff from George Mason got here:

- 1 ACC Championship
- 1 ACC regular season championship
- Canes basketball playing in April for the first time in its history;
deepest national tourney run and first championship
game appearance.
- Four 20+ win seasons
- National Coach of the Year

Need these rates to hold another 60 days. Have a construction loan that converts to a fixed when we get a CO.

Looking a jumbo rate right at or just below 4% which is ridiculous.

Thirsty,

I am in Indiantown almost every Wednesday for a meeting @ 2. Sometimes I drive up from SoFL, sometimes from Orlando. Either way if you want to grab lunch that would be cool.

Is there a local Jacksonville State Grill & Wings? Lol.

Interesting news story from 4/1:

NCAA CONSIDERS ENDING BASKETBALL PLAYOFFS

Syracuse, NY (UT) - The NCAA is reportedly deciding this week whether or not to eliminate its annual sixty five team tournament.

The change was considered after an independent commission released a report
last week that scathed the NCAA playoff system. Numerous reasons were cited, including insufficient study time and overall fairness.

"I hope they do decide to do away with it," said commission chairperson Robert Spurrier during a recent interview, "March Madness is exactly that. It is madness, and it is patently unfair. Traditional basketball powers like Kentucky, Duke, and Kansas will always be finishing in the Top 16,
resulting in an unequal distribution of additional revenues to those schools. Smaller colleges like Boise State and Gonzaga cannot compete."

The tournament's length was also a point of contention. "It can take up to a month of class time away from the student-athletes," said sports psychologist Dr. E. Benneth Biggelsworth. "Who knows what long term affects this could lead to."

The commission contends that NCAA basketball should instead follow college
football's former example and institute a series of bowl games. "They could be
held in any number of stadiums or arenas around the country," Spurrier said. "The college bowl system is a well-established institution in this country. We believe that it is far more preferable to have each college play only one post-season game rather than six. Plus under a bowl system
the smaller colleges would receive post-season revenue, as long as they
finished with a winning record. And as college football quite clearly has
shown over the course of a decade, with the addition of a Bowl or Arena Championship Series you are guaranteed to have an undisputed national champion."

Best canes pro day in over a decade. All 32 teams represented including coaches and general managers. Very impressive showing for any top program. This is one of the major reasons top recruits commit to a program - they want a chance to make it to the NFL.

If the Canes can get 2 first rounders and 2 second rounders and several other picks in later rounds in the NFL draft, this will appeal to recruits and help the Canes recruiting tremendously. A winning season and a coastal division championship could help deliver the top recruiting classes for 2016 and 2017.

I heard Lebatard and Mel Kiper saying Al should be embarrassed by his W/L record considering the amount of talent Miami had.

Nah CW. I'm just responding to the post prior to mine paraphrasing something that came from a nationally syndicated radio host and probably the foremost draft analyst in America. Those opinions are out there and are being said by what some might call "experts." Also, some bloggers were given free reign to say what needs to be said. I am lucky enough to be one of them, of course that said, I think I'm probably one of the most reasonable people and talk about various things so I don't feel like I abuse my privilege. Of course, SOUP and O_C can pretty much tell me to shutup whenever and usually do when I step over the line, to which I'm a good soldier about. I don't want to see Canespace go anywhere either. I've been posting with these dudes since Omar Kelly's blog on the SS. CS isn't just about Miami sports to me, I share my thoughts with my friends here. Friends I've known for a long time.

The Dude

I hope that didn't sound snarky CW.

Nice post, The Dude.

Congrats & Good Luck to Coach L and the Hoops Team!! NIT champs would be a great end to an exciting season. Looking at the NCAA tourney runs the ACC had should put the season in perspective. Coach L has done a tremendous job given the talent he has.

Good to see U still operating SOUP.

IMO there was ZERO issue with his post...and NOT because Im a hater. The post wasnt hateful or directed at any blogger, he simply shared "experts" opinions, and one that was fitting considering the success and amount of talent at our pro day.

I do worry though that IF we have a similar win loss record or only show small improvement this successful pro day and/or draft could be the latest in a long line of excuses.

But if Golden and staff can carry the momentum from this pro day into the draft, and into the season and win some games the next class should be top 3 and help to change some local recruiting efforts.

When teams win the NIT or make it to the finals, are they normally ranked the following year to start?
