Unc is not that good but had a few players get hot and in all honesty had Bacot been 100, Carolina wins. Kansas is better than UNC talent wise but they also, to me are good but not great.

Canes beat FGCU 5-2 tonight!
22-6

orange 'n green in the vein

I noticed the cheating blue blood program Miami lost to in the postseason is about to get sanctioned by the NCAA for actual committed violations unveiled in the FBI probe that falsely smeared the Hurricane program and disrupted its momentum for several years before turning the corner on the smear job this season finally.

"The win obviously comes with a looming situation for Self and Kansas. That uncertain future has the potential to influence what Self can do or wants to do. Kansas is awaiting punishment from the NCAA (via the IARP), and sources have told CBS Sports that it's likely that the damage will be severe — and coming soon. A ruling on Kansas happening in the near-future is probable.

This of course dates back to the FBI scandal, as the NCAA has pinned five Level I violations on Self and his program. He's guaranteed a suspension, and its length could be anywhere from low double digits in games to sitting out an entire season. He'll fight it all, and the university will certainly try to sue on his behalf, but because this is the IARP, there is no appeal process.

There's a chance Kansas could also be banned from the 2023 postseason."

Curious, how that works out for the parties involved, huh?

I wonder if the vacancy on our men's basketball staff will be filled by a typical low-level assistant (such as an in-staff promotion) or maybe by an unofficial head coach in waiting.

Anyone have any ideas?

I vote OGV.

That is all.

Canes baseball whoops FIU 17-1 heading into a big series this weekend at mark light vs UVA

HerbieIbis

Well it's good to see us battering the sisters of the poor but I believe the Cavs have a couple top notch pitchers, so this weekend will be a good evaluation of where we are at.

AeroCane

Herb
I agree
As I’ve said numerous times, I’m in wait and see mode in regards to dimare

Baseball factoids from an opinion piece in the NYTimes. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/04/06/opinion/baseball-nationalize.html

Attendance at games has declined steadily since 2008. An ordinary national prime-time M.L.B. broadcast, such as ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball,” attracts some 1.5 million pairs of eyes each week. Even the World Series attracts smaller audiences than the average “Thursday Night Football” broadcast, In 1975, the World Series had an average of 36 million viewers per game; in 2021, it barely attracted 12 million per game. The average age of a person watching a baseball game on television is 57.

In some parts of the country, participation in Little League has decreased by nearly 50 percent in the past decade and a half. Typical American 10-year-olds wouldn’t recognize the name much less the face of Jorge Soler, who was voted the most valuable player of last year’s World Series.

And Mike Trout has a $426 million contract. Enjoy it while you can buddy, very few people are going to be paying for your autograph in 20 years.

Cedric Baxter JR, the #2 running back (6’1, 215) in the nation visited the U today for the 2nd time (first with his parents) and loved it. Not saying he’s coming, but Mario ain’t playing around.

HerbieIbis

Yeah, Mario ain't playing around because if u offer enough for and 5 star players, u should get your share, or at least hope we would. I thought maybe some big fish would have taken a bite but nothing yet. Josh Connerly announces tomorrow and I hope this ain't a reoccurring theme by coming up short.

AeroCane

I doubt we get Connerly but I do think we end up with at least 3 5 stars this recruiting season
JMO

AeroCane

It looks like we are not getting rb mark fletcher as all the tea leaves are pointing to osu
Even more important we get Baxter

AeroCane

Canes beat #3 UVA 6-2 tonight behind 6 strong innings from palmquist and HR’s from morales, Romero and Gutierrez
Nice strong win!

HerbieIbis

Yes that was a big win. VA hitting close to 340. as a team.

HerbieIbis

Speaking of Connerly he committed to the Quacks.
It's a bad sign when a kid says someone has been recruiting him since JR High, like Fletcher says Miami has. A kiss of death statement. Dem boys still ain't getting the picture, so Mario will have to paint a Picasso in the Fall.

AeroCane

Herb, I agree. Maybe the next time when a kid like fletcher (assuming he goes to osu) enters the portal to come home we say ‘take a hike’ they will get the picture of ‘stay home’ it’s not greener somewhere else.

On Friday, InsideTheU reported that a five-star trio from Bradenton IMG Academy which includes offensive lineman Francis Mauigoa, athlete Samuel M'Pemba, and 2024 cornerback Ellis Robinson IV would be down in Coral Gables to watch the Hurricanes scrimmage on Saturday.

For Mauigoa and M'Pemba, it will be their second time down in South Florida in 2022. The No. 2 offensive tackle was in town for Elite Prospect Day in late January, while M'Pemba, a St. Louis native, is returning for the second time in less than three weeks.

Hopefully we get a commitment from a high end guy soon so the ball gets rolling!

AeroCane

Canes - UVA
4-4 going to the 7th

Also, Jonathan Denis,OL transferring to the U

JCane

4 runs, 6 hits and 0 errors on both sides so far in the 7th in a tight game. Canes scored 1 in the 6th to tie things up after giving a 5 spot in the 4th to the Cavs.

JCane

4 spot, not 5

JCane

Just saw you, AC. Sorry to duplicate. Good timing!

JCane

Morales solo HR in 7th, 5-4, Canes, now B8th.

AeroCane

Thx JC!
Great Victory for the Canes tonight!
Morales on a tear with his 2nd dinger in 2 days!

Terrance Sullivan

Canes Baseball is on Fiyah Daddio!

HerbieIbis

Well, The Canes may be the real deal after all. Already took care of Clemson, UNC and a series win against VA, regardless of today.

We must have a lot of open roster spots by adding Denis and still looking to add 2 to 3 more on defense. The main area is LB.

JCane

Rumors about another UCLA LB, Herb

AeroCane

To follow up on above:
Miami offered UCLA linebacker transfer Caleb Johnson and the Hurricanes are expected to pursue heavily. He was teammates with transfer addition Mitchell Agude. The California native who started 17 games in two seasons with the Bruins. He finished with 5.5 sacks and 7 tackles for loss in a shortened 2020 season.
6’1, 229

AeroCane

Canes up 11-3 in the 5th over #3 UVA
Going for the SWEEP

canes4us

canes sweep 15-5

nemo2020

Nice!
Thanks, Aero.

AeroCane

Nemo, I can’t tell you how impressed I am with this team. Even dimare is making changes that he would not of last year!
Go Canes!!

JCane

Baseball winners of 13 straight, taking sweeps of Duke, UNC and UVa amongst a few midweek FL school wins. Next comes FAU, the team they beat to start the streak after thar big loss in game 3 vs Clemson. Next weekend they head to Blacksburg to visit the turkeys. Like AC said, DiMare has them playing well. There are fewer errors, more consistent pitching, and better/more timely hitting vs the first few weeks of the season. I wanna believe. Let's see what the next few weeks bring. The key to being really good shows on the schedule. You need to typically sweep the lesser teams and have a good mix of sweeps and series wins against the tougher conference foes to be considered at least a regional host candidate. We'll see if this continues.

AeroCane

JC
You said it perfectly! Let’s hope it continues as I really want to be excited about this team but we will see. So far a very exciting season.
It’s also very good to see Rosario gaining his confidence back and morales starting to swing really well.

HerbieIbis

Well the streak can't last forever. U can be beaten by anybody in baseball. Just keep winning series.

AeroCane

UCLA linebacker transfer Caleb Johnson Is supposedly coming to visit Tuesday thru Friday
Would be a very good pick up and assuredly an upgrade to what we have

HerbieIbis

Amen on that Aero!!

AeroCane

On Monday, Cristobal added another high school piece to the line of scrimmage when Australian offensive lineman Frankie Tinilau announced his commitment to Miami. 6’5, 315 and supposedly very athletic and strong! I predict by end of ratings he will be a 4 star!

AeroCane

Wow
Canes baseball up to number in the polls after our sweep of UVA
Now, let’s hope we prove we belong!!
Btw if curious, Tennessee is ranked #1

The Word From The Herb

Well, The Herb likes the pick up. Get a couple developmental players, give them time and by year 3 or their RS Soph season they should be ready to roll. Now we need a couple ready made tanks four or five stars, that can get on the field early.

Now to the portal, where I still see the plague is still keeping LBers away. I just want One, One dam LBer in the middle that can move and plug them holes. I mean is that too much to ask for? I know Mario is scouring the waiver wire. Hell, we really need 2, in my humble opinion.
Aero, I know u see where Gino has the Boyz ranked. U can pull them choppers out of his azz for a while.

JCane

The Vols have to be 1, winning 23 in a row, starting 12-0 in SEC play, and winning 31 out of 32 thus far. Amazing start.

UM jumps to 2 while UVa drops to 8 and is 4 games back of the U in 2nd place in the Coastal after the sweep. It was huge in terms of conference play.

VT, the next series opponent, moves in at 21. FU moves back in at 23. FSU has dropped out for now

Hard to be unhappy right now. Just have to keep an eye on consistency. Like you said, Herb...streaks end. Good teams still keep playing well and winning the vast majority of the time.

Old Skool

Tirek Austin Cave is now Tirek Austin Portal

AeroCane

Old Skool
Omg - what are we going to do! Without him we should just forfeit the season! Should I go in? LOL

AeroCane

More importantly - maybe it’s a sign Caleb Johnson or another LB recruit is coming!! Let’s hope so

HerbieIbis

There are a few more of those LB's that need to hit the portal job, as well.
We should be contributing about 5 or 6 to the portal.
Hope the prognosticators are wrong but from their predictions and I hope most are wrong being that it is early, we are on the outside looking in on quite a few players that we are after and they may have to start looking under the rocks for a QB for this cycle.
Don't get me wrong, I like the think big or go home but even the home base ain't cooking at this time. Maybe Brown and Bain and after that who knows.

AeroCane

#2 Canes beat FAU tonight 7-6.

AeroCane

Btw
We were down 6-2 in the 6th and came back for the win!

AeroCane

Amarius Mims will officially visit Miami on Thursday and be in South Florida through Saturday or Sunday, per a source. That's obviously massive for Miami who has been a contender from the jump. 6’7, 330 lb OL trf from Georgia

JCane

Appreciate the update on the game from last night, AC. The team is showing a lot of fight. Should be a fun series at VT. A series win would truly be good enough at this point, as they can't sweep everyone, and VT is playing good ball.

AeroCane

Thx JC
I agree - need to take 2out of 3 and I’d be very happy! I know nothing about VT baseball so it should be fun
