Alpine...your NEW BLOG is posted!

BigWindyCane1

By the NCAA suspending recruiting, it should give the Canes a little edge with local recruits who can’t go visit. Still, it all boils down to winning. If the Canes bounce back from a 6-7 season to go 10-2, which is what they should, that will solve 75% of their recruiting problems

good clip, solar! (someone did a real good job!)

. . . plus, it gave me something to do tomorrow:
. . . gonna thoroughly clean house and see if i can find some hidden optimism

I try to watch this at least once a year, especially if I am feeling sorry for myself, or thinking about what a grand person I am.
It may bring the current situation into perspective for us

hey 86 - should we put out a message that alpine's blog will not be able to run until it has been tested for coronavirus?

Posted by: alpine | March 14, 2020 at 01:24 AM

I have had it in quarantine for 7 days now. I think it should be safe to expose to the bloggers now. I will post it later today or tonight. I am at work until 6 PM but I expect it to be pretty quiet at the new home model center this weekend.

A day after canceling all spring championships because of the coronavirus outbreak, the NCAA is granting athletes in those spring sports an extra season of eligibility.

The NCAA’s decision will allow seniors, who briefly believed they had played their final games in college, to return for an extra season in 2021.

“Council leadership agreed that eligibility relief is appropriate for all Division I student-athletes who participated in spring sports,” the NCAA said in a statement.

For the No. 5 Miami Hurricanes baseball team, this means seniors Brian Van Belle, Tyler Keysor and Chad Crosbie will be allowed to return next season even though all had exhausted their four seasons of eligibility. Van Belle, a redshirt senior, was Miami’s Opening Day starter this season after foregoing the 2019 MLB draft to return to the Hurricanes.

the weird kicker: my mother used to say "mcgillicutty" to me when i was young

. . . is that from I LOVE LUCY? or somewhere else?

305prophit

I wonder, with the cancellation of the rest of Spring football, will the NCAA allow teams to start earlier in prep for the Fall. I know we could use them 11 days we are going to miss but why would start practice right before Spring break, take about 10 days off and come back and start practicing again. Start getting a little MO and put the breaks on.
The moral, don't put off tomorrow what u could of got done today.

BigWindyCane1

No live sports for the foreseeable future? In America? What will we do?

I guess I will go to YouTube to watch old games and get my fix

Jeff Thomas at the 2016 open, where measurables are taken and compare to the NFL combine and he gained all of 3 pounds in 3 years and got a tad slower. This dude must of been skating thru the winter and summer workouts.
Cam Akers from FSU gain 4 LB'S in 3 years lost a little speed and almost 5 in. Off his vert.

Posted by: 305prophit | March 12, 2020 at 12:20 PM

How does this happen? Good info 305. It makes you wonder what was going on with these guys? It will definitely hurt them in the draft, although IMHO, Akers will be drafted, and (unfortunately) JT4 probably won’t

Terrance M Sullivan

UMike, Solar, and Jason Sadly Unless something drastically changes their want be any Canes Baseball against GT in Atlanta or anymore Canes Baseball this season. Let's link up Lord Willing this Fall for Canes Football against GT in Atlanta. Hopefully this year I don't come down with a Awful Cold like 2 Years Ago!

Absolutely crazy times.

Sad for the athletes who've poured their heart and souls into their sport, only to have it snatched from them by something completely beyond their control.

4. Rhett Lashlee’s offense is fast, fast, fast

The up-tempo style that Lashlee’s offense runs at is something we all knew going into spring, but now that it’s actually being carried out at Miami in practice, it’s like everyone is just in shock. The Canes are literally going from a slow-moving lethargic type of offense, to the complete opposite.

Hey gang,
Hope you and your families are safe and healthy.

If you are out and about and are able to do it, take a few cans of food or a bag of rice or some diapers and drop it by your local food bank or neighborhood church.
The food banks are drying up and volunteers are becoming scarce.

The underprivileged are the first to suffer and the last to heal during a disaster.

Posted by: Terrance M Sullivan | March 12, 2020 at 01:01 AM

Funny, I was thinking that same thing as I was driving home from the game. I thought back to the game and replayed my interactions with people during the game and I really only interacted with about 7-8 people of which I would say 2 were possibly in the high risk category. No different than a day at work really. But that was in an open air slightly crowded baseball stadium not a packed indoor stadium like basketball during March madness or NVA game.

- luckily for me, the end of the season felt good enough to overcome the rest of the season

. . . "felt good enough" = i saw enough to give me hope of the track the canes are on regarding next season

- i know the conventional wisdom is "winning is everything", "losing is for losers" and the rest of those clichés . . . but there are some seasons i'm watching for other things, when i know not to expect satisfaction tin the W-L column
. . . after the FBI/NCAA engaged in double-penetration, i knew it would take the canes a couple seasons to be able to "walk" normal again; gotta see my team in the 2nd year (1) progress and (2) play with feistiness

Canes men basketball team had just 6 assists today. The lack of ball movement has been a major issue all season. Spot up jump shots, cuts and layups were rare. Unselfish basketball was nonexistent. The lack of assists is one offensive statistic that must change next season

I got u Tee, no doubt but this cycle, there are 2 top shelf DT'S, that can be dogs for us. Last time we had an elite DT beside Willis was Wilfork. We can get edge rushers all day but that position is where we have flopped over and over. Yes we have had some serviceable dudes that half the the time they are good and other times they are average at best. Florida doesn't have an abundance of really good DT'S.
DB'S, RB's, DE's and WR's there is talent every where.
Last Cycle and this cycle there are some good Oh linemen to be had and the best one already is verballed to Clemson. We caught to be mining Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas for fillers. New Jersey is a state we used to pull talent from.
Florida is a thorn in our side, mainly because kids can still play in state, be closer to home and play in the SEC.
They ain't that great and aside from Georgia that division they play in is weak.
