Rex Chapman is a disgrace calling this game. He's just basically cheerleading Kentucky. Extremely annoying.

Buchanon's book is, in fact, out, and he was nice enough to give FOXSports.com an exclusive excerpt. Here is Buchanon, discussing how his relationship changed with his mother, once he made it big:

"Soon after the draft, she told me that I owed her a million dollars for raising me for the past 18 years. Well, that was news to me. If my mother taught me anything, it's that this is the most desperate demand that a parent can make on a child. The covenant of having a child is simply that you give your child everything possible, and they owe you nothing beyond a normal amount of love and respect. There is no financial arrangement. If you get old and infirm, and your kids are around to help you out at that point, then you're lucky. It's not written in the social contract. The mothers and fathers of the world have been rearing their kids for generations -- in every culture imaginable -- and it's a one-way street when it comes to money. If they pay you back someday, and you really are going through hard times, then that's just a bonus, a gratuity for being a great mother or father."

^^^^^^^^^ Goes to show you that blood ain't always thicker than water.

Lurker

An adult child SHOULD help their parents if they are in need and the adult child has the means.

But Buchanon is right in this respect, the parent shouldn't expect it.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Is Buchanon an ingrate to his mother, or did she actually DEMAND money (not sure if that happened)? Which if it did happen exactly like that, then she's kind of a leech. Not sure what happened here. Not even sure who's the good guy/bad guy, or if there's even one.

One thing I do know for sure: parents and grown children should not get on like this.

CaneRock

It happens Lurker...

Jack Johnson of the Columbus Blue Jackets:

But sources close to Johnson have told The Dispatch that his own parents — Jack Sr. and Tina Johnson — are among the “wrong people” who led him astray financially.

In 2008, Johnson parted ways with agent Pat Brisson, who represents some of the National Hockey League’s biggest stars, including Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.

With no agent and little knowledge of how the financial world works, Johnson turned over control of his money to his parents.

In 2011, in the weeks leading up to Johnson’s first big contract — a seven-year, $30.5 million deal signed with the Los Angeles Kings, under which he now plays for the Blue Jackets — Johnson signed a power of attorney that granted his mother full control of his finances.

Tina Johnson borrowed at least $15 million in her son’s name against his future earnings, sources told The Dispatch, taking out a series of high-interest loans — perhaps as many as 18 — from nonconventional lenders that resulted in a series of defaults.

The tangled web is one that The Dispatch has been investigating since the spring, and — according to court documents, NHL sources and sources with knowledge of the situation — involves a U.S. congressman from Iowa, the son of an oil baron in Texas and a former University of Michigan basketball star.

Because Johnson’s name is on the loans, he has been sued at least three times for more than $6 million for defaulting, as in the case of the mortgage on a house in Manhattan Beach, Calif. In court documents, Johnson says his parents bought the house with his money but without his knowledge.

Johnson’s parents allegedly each bought a car, spent more than $800,000 on upgrades to the Manhattan Beach property and traveled, often to see him play NHL games for the Kings and Blue Jackets.

“Jack would ask (his parents) questions: ‘What’s this? What are these guys calling about?’  ” a source said. “And they would tell him not to worry about it, just worry about playing hockey.

“These were his parents, right? He trusted them. It wasn’t until last spring or early summer that he understood there was a significant problem.”

In his bankruptcy filing, Johnson claims assets of “less than $50,000” and debts of “more than $10 million,” although sources say the debt could be in the neighborhood of $15 million.

A bankruptcy hearing is scheduled for Jan. 23 in Los Angeles.

Tina Johnson’s cellphone number listed in court documents is no longer in service. Jack Johnson Sr. has not returned several messages left on his cellphone, and several of the lenders have no storefronts or business phones.

Johnson has cut off all contact with his family, a source said.

Johnson’s paychecks from the Blue Jackets have been garnisheed to the point where, at the end of last season, “His paychecks were gone before he even got them,” a source said.

“I’ve seen lots of instances of parents riding their kid’s coattails around,” said an NHL executive familiar with the case. “I’ve never seen a case as ugly as this one, where the parents took such advantage of their kid.”

So in the end, what wins out...a lotta talent with a lil' bit of chemistry?...or the less talented team with 3-4 years of chemistry?

Next season when Okafor and Winslow are in the NBA, Coach L and his experienced Canes team will make a run for the ACC championship against a new crop of Duke and UNC freshmen. The Canes should be poised to make a run.

This question also applies to football. In many instances, some good college coaches red shirt players and try to develop them and build depth. I think Golden would like to do more of that. A team with 5th year seniors can outplay a team of 3 year and done individual superstars.

JCane

6th inning, the U is up 6-0 over Duke in game 3 going for the sweep, and so far E. Sosa is riding a one hitter with 3 K and no walks. Not like anyone at Duke is paying attention to their baseball team this weekend, but we can!

For now, the U is 3 games up, at 10-4, in the Coastal over V Tech. However, Louisville is 12-1 and FSU is 11-4 in the Atlantic. Losing 2 out of 3 earlier in the season to Louisville still looms large for conference seeding. There is a huge series vs. FSU coming up at the Light 4/24-4/26. I hope we'll have a heavily pro UM and full stadium that weekend.

VfB_Cane

Canes now lead 10-0 in the 7th.
Enrique Sosa left the game after 6.1 almost flawless innings, giving only one hit and no runs.

I agre with JCane, the FSU series will tell us a whole lot where this team stands.

VfB_Cane

Game over, Canes win 10-0. Sweep!

Canes now have a 4-game lead on VT in the Coastal.

Johnson says Virginia Tech could be an obstacle and sees the division as a two-team race. “To me, the league goes through Blacksburg or Atlanta, in our division,” he says. “It has every year but one [since I’ve been here]. I don’t see it changing.”

LOL....that is bulletin board material. That quote needs to be on every locker, every white board, every tablet in Coral Gables.

Well we are not world beaters, but this pisses me off. I say its BIG bulletin board material; that has got to piss people of...like me. Triple option is an assigment deal; do your job they no go!!! Gimmick for the most part. Lets wreck the rambling wreck form GT!!!!

VT will struggle this year my contacts at home tell me....we can compete for the title. GO CANES!

For those I was talking with about guns... Just bought my Glock 19. Added a Gould and Goodrich conceal carry holster. Love this gun. Did NOT know they came with 3 mags AND 4 grips now! Fantastic!

Dude on a Pale Horse

One thing you can do is use the G17 mags too. Grats on the new gun my man. I think if I buy a Glock, I'll get one with a Timberwolf frame, the G19 finger grooves are just super uncomfortable with my fingers.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I totally agree VAC, that's some super motivational stuff. The problem is Al blocks that stuff out, they're the same team everyday. Dang, does that mean they'll be the same team next year? Lol.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ for TC also.

CaneRock

The only thing I take issue with, is Him saying "I don't see it changing". Other than that, He's right...with the exception of 2013 (Duke), the ACCC has gone through either ATL or Blacksburg.

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^^^^"SINCE 2008, the ACCC has gone through either ATL or Blacksburg".

6-7 should be the only bulletin board material we need. 6-7 should be on every locker, white board etc. We should HATE that we went 6-7, we shouldnt need any bulletin board material to play better.

99.8% of the time the Coastal has gone through Blacksburg or ATL. His team is coming on an 11 win season...yes 11 wins! They beat Miami and won their bowl game against a 10 win team, so why shouldnt he say this?
