Baseball today:

Dallas Baptist beat VCU to move to a rematch for the superregional birth vs. the Coral Gables winner, and is now losing to VCU, 2-0, in the 2nd.

FSU is beating Coll. of Charleston handily so far, up by 6 and still undefeated, in spite of the early close call to Mercer.

Biggest blowout of the regionals so far apparently is going on with Vandy and Radford, now 21-0, Vandy, after a 10 run 5th. 18 hits for Vandy, while Radford has committed 4 errors. This is definitely a day they'd like to forget.

Most important game of all is starting in @20 min. at the Light. The U has to win tonight to advance, let alone to keep me interested in following any more NCAA baseball this season! I expect the appropriate adjustments to be made for the offense in dealing with hitting more offspeed stuff...hopefully. I expect Columbia to keep at it until the U shows they can do something about it.

I don't agree with his ACC selection but that's what 6-7 gets you:/

At least he thinks our offense will be almost as good as FSU's. Seminoles: 1-1-1-1 (1st team / 2nd / 3rd / 4th), The U: 0-1-2-1.

That CaneShades radio show is pretty good, the interview with Mrs.Mullins was funny.

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) — The Southeastern Conference has adopted a rule prohibiting its schools from enrolling student-athletes with "serious misconduct" issues at previous colleges.

Call it the Jonathan Taylor statute.

The league defined serious misconduct as "sexual assault, domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence."

No other conference has a similar conduct rule.

Georgia proposed the new legislation in the wake of Taylor's troubles. The Bulldogs dismissed Taylor last July after he was arrested on a charge of felony aggravated assault and family violence. Police said he struck his girlfriend with a closed fist and choked her during an argument at Taylor's dormitory room.

Taylor spent last fall at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi and enrolled at Alabama in January, which raised eyebrows. The Tide dismissed him two months later after he was arrested again on domestic violence charges in Tuscaloosa.

He definitely looks like he's in the 200 Lb range.

Travis Homer =s Ameer Abdullah.

Gore was more of a power back in HS.

SinisterCane

ESPN cuts CANEZ HATER Mark May from College football final!!!!!!!

Da U N Houston

Homer definitely reminds me of Gore, specifically his balance. Looking at he highlights from "The Opening" tryouts, kid is definitely taller than 5'9" which Rivals shows and looks thicker tan 187 for a 5'10' kid.

Hope he sticks.

thirstybuzzardcane

Some more video of Homer. Physically, he looks like he can play yesterday!!! Looks like a big strong kid....he'll be playing right away if he sticks with his commitment.

Here's Homers spring highlights! He reminds me of a Reggie Bush/Frank Gore!

trianglecane

If this team sticks together (leaders besides kaaya emerge), I can see 9-10 wins. if they have whatever it was last season.. Goldie will be gone and the class will look similar to that rb group we had this year.

thirstybuzzardcane

I was thinking of Gore also, but only 25% of him....LOL

Ohio_Cane

Homer bumped to a 4* this morning.

Here's highlights of Travis Homer!!....The kid has unbelievable balance. I really can't put my finger on who he reminds me of!!

I was trying to place it. Someone said Tyner from Oregon, and I can see that. Was trying to compare him to a former Cane, and only thing I kept thinking was Gore, but he's shiftier than Gore.

Geo305 at CanesInsight thinks Jerron Rollins could commit to UM soon. Was offered yesterday.

Ohio_Cane

Travis Homer can FLY! Glad to have him committed!

thirstybuzzardcane

Look on the bright side, we can't play any worse than we did last night....At least I don't think we can, can we?

Game at 7pm tomorrow.

JCane

3-1 count. Walks Barr with one out.

DP, game over...ugh. How about winning the game tomorrow.... Night all...

JCane

Eusebio, quick 0-2 count. K swinging.

Barr: Ball one, now 2-0 count. 3-0 count. No baserunners at all since the 5th...

CaneRock

ESPN3 broadcast of the game:

http://espn.go.com/watchespn/#

JCane

First 2 batters out for the Lions. The danger here is that Columbia has only used 2 pitchers tonight, which is just what they'd want after playing so many games the last few days.

1-2-3, with the 3rd out on a K.

Time for the top of the order to pick up a huge 4 runs in the bottom of the 9th! Let's go, Canes!!!!

JCane

that fly was an out, btw.

JCane

Heyward: full count...fly to center, the Canes have 3 more outs left to get some runs.

JCane

Brandon Lopez up: Fly ball...out 1

Only two regular season games this season where the U was held to one run, to FU and FGCU, and no shutouts. Offense please.... Col pitcher has now retired 7 straight Canes.

Abreu: K, looking....out 2....no U hits since the 4th now...

Gin & Tonic

Bottom 8 down 3-0

JCane

C'mon back, TBC! I don't feel like doing these updates, as I want to get my goofy U rally cap on!

JCane

High and shallow center, Eusebio catches it, the U gets out of a bases loaded jam. To the bottom half of the 8th and the bottom part of the batting order we go.

JCane

To left hard, out. Luckily it was hit hard, along with the runner at 3rd tripping on the bag when he might have tagged, although wouldn't have beaten a good throw, imo, if he'd gone. 2 outs. Needs to keep it close and give up no more.

JCane

Bunt, one out and Columbia plays smart ball, moving up the runners to 2nd and 3rd. Now, up comes Maguire who is 3-3 for the night, so they're going to walk him and load the bases, hoping to set up a DP.

JCane

C'mon, TBC. Can't quit on this team. Anything is possible. I'm still waiting on a big O inning.

Unfortunately, now runners on 1st and 2nd for Columbia and Coach is coming out to make another pitching change, with Ricky going out...

thirstybuzzardcane

1-2-3 goes the Canes....I'm done for the night. Time to watch Game of Thrones.

JCane

The U hasn't been shut out yet this season. However, here we are with a goose egg and only two hits so far, and with the first batter out.

JCane

At least that inning didn't do more damage, like the earlier 2 run inning that could have been way worse. Now if we can get some offense generated in bottom of the 7th.

The good thing, TBC, is that we're not play in the CWS today, as they can't afford to be punchless any days there.

thirstybuzzardcane

Miami gets out another jam!

Miami 0
Columbia 3

Heading to bottom 7

JCane

er, that was shallow center....

thirstybuzzardcane

If Miami plays like this tomorrow, they ain't winning shyt

Columbia leads 3-0 and still have 2 on with 1 out.

JCane

Yuck...dinked one in to shallow left, now 3-0....quiet crowd....check in later...

JCane

Thanks for all of the updating, TBC, and appreciate the ongoing. Gotta go do the family thing.... :(

JCane

FWIW, NDU lost to Illinois earlier and is losing late in the loser game vs. Wright State.

My guess that Oregon State would take the game vs. VCU was their kiss of death, losing and now playing vs. Dallas Baptist in the loser bracket.

Unfortunately Hammond has already pitched vs. this team, so they've seen his style. Now runners on the corners.

JCane

and we're getting Cooper Hammond in relief again. He had a great ninth vs. FIU in their regional opener. So far 3 hits for the visitor and 2 hits for the home team. Another issue for the U is that the little things (ie stolen bases, hits with 2 outs) simply haven't worked for them tonight.

JCane

My opinion has been that this U's offense has been hot and cold much of the season, in spite of the overall big numbers, let alone the adjustment to seeing pitchers you've not seen before. They've also done a lot with other teams' mistakes, such as walks, errors, etc. Columbia plays pretty smart, even though clearly a team that should be beaten easily on paper. Nice sac by Columbia moving the runner to 2nd with one out now....pains me to say. The U often has one or two big innings rather than a lot of nibbling all game long. They're starting to run low on innings tonight, so hopefully they can play some D and have one damaging offensive inning tonight rather than having to play again tomorrow.

Rhuh Rhoo...

C'mon guys, it looks like they never faced a guy that throws 82 mph before.

Fourth seeded VCU is 2-0 in the Dallas Baptist bracket.....That's good for us I guess. Just take care of business tonight boyz!

JCane

Wish I could be there.... the shakes are great, Lurker.

FAU beat USF to advance to play FU in the Gainesville regional, needing to beat them twice. Go Owls!

Play in Tally is on delay.

Dallas Baptist took down Texas and will play the loser of the Oregon State-VCU game in the bracket opposing UM's.

Most importantly, Columbia has come back from the 2-0 deficit to FIU and now leads 4-2 in the top of the 8th. If they hold on, the U gets to play them again tonight, with a UM win getting the advance to the supers.

Catch all of you later.

Lur-ker

I have no doubt of that ... and all the Mark Light shakes would be on me!

If I were in South Fla., I would definitely be there. No excuse not to be there, if you are in the area. The players need your support. GO CANES.

Tickets still available for the Light tonight. From GA to field box.

Inexpensive.

CS Fullerton came back to win in 14 to take control of their regional. However, #1 overall seed, UCLA, did not, and moves to the loser bracket. UVa won their game, so now we have 5 ACC schools in the championship games of regionals, still awaiting the NDU postponed game from yesterday vs. Illinois. If it weren't for Clemson, the ACC would still be undefeated. Of course, I don't give a crap about any of this if the U isn't one of them!

Many regional #1s have already lost games at their home sites, so let's not take for granted how hard it is to keep winning and avoid off nights or good teams. Here's to taking care of business tonight.

Go Canes

This is good IMO.

@CanesWarningFS: All of the UM coaches and players are out here hanging out with the 7-on-7 players before registration

Go Canes

Destiny is in our hands.

Let's eliminate any suspense and knock it out tonight!

Go Canes!!

Well done tbc.

JCane

Quickie update: NC State won their game and moves to the championship game of the TCU regional. This means that at least 4 ACC teams will be in regional championship games, still awaiting UVa (tied end of 6th) and NDU outcomes tonight and tomorrow.

CaneRock

WWIM...true story...but my wife bought home LeChump's new soda, that Sprite Mix. Make a long story short, I flushed that $h!t down the toilet. I would've cleaned my toilet with it, but I was like naaaaaah, my toilet deserves better than that! LMAO!

JCane

Thx for the updates tonight, TBC.

Around the country, FSU pulled out another late game win, eking out the one run victory, as did Louisville over U Mich, with both heading to the championship games of their respective regionals. FU also heads to the championship game with a win over USF.

In our superregional matchup regional, all was postponed from Dallas due to weather. They'll try again tomorrow.

In other regionals, a #1 seed, UCSB, gets knocked out in 2 games. ACC foe Clemson goes home, NC State is down by a run in the top of the 9th to see who stays in the winners bracket, and UVa is tied, but only @ halfway through their game. NDU was postponed til tomorrow vs the Illini. #1 national seed UCLA is down by two runs early to Maryland, as is Cal State Fullerton to ASU. CSF has a similar hx of baseball success as the U, so I find them interesting to follow.

Most importantly, it's all about the U, baby. Big win tonight. Tomorrow at 7pm sets the stage for the superregional. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict Oregon State will take the Dallas Baptist regional and come to play, HOPEFULLY, the U in the supers. We all know Omaha would much rather have Hurricanes than Beavers!

Wait...hold your horses, as NC State has the top of the 9th rally in full gear, now up 5-4 with two runs going into the bottom of the 9th.

Night all.

Boom!!!! Canes win!!!
