Canedolfan386 on the math list. You only get to spend 100 % points on a prediction. No overs.

Soup, please don't block the LSU troll. You just can't teach that kind of dumb and it is pretty entertaining in this dead pre-camp period.

Good addition, Dude. He likes lots of beer so will have lots of drinking opportunities. A can for every td given up could make for a good game.

Just got a note from a relative who is a Houston Cougar fan asking me about their new defensive coordinator---Mark "no D" D'Onofrio. My response: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha tell your OC to plan on needing 60+ to win.

Sadly, if NCAA doesn't loosen scholarship $ and rules on baseball, I'm afraid the good old days will be the good old days. Only get 11.7 scholarships (full time equivalents) that you can spread around up to 27 guys. If you get a 1/2 scholarship offer from Morris, which is pretty typical, you still need to come up with a 32.5 k since UM all in is now 65k. If eligible for in state tuition you could walk on to Noles or Turds and pay less than what the 1/2 would cost you at UM.
Only team with a winning ACC record to not make the NCAA tournament in 30 years, didn't impact herbie's thinking I guess.

I was fearful everyone was underestimating the hatred the NCAA has for UM. We can never leave qualifying for a tourney or the outcome of any game in doubt. Must be decisive or clowns like this baseball committee or Terry Porter will f*** us.

We sure made the bottom of the 9th intersting. Don't remember ever seeing a game end on runner hit by batted ball. Limp off hit by batted ball.

Thanks, TS. I didn't know that. 11 tomorrow way better for me. Couldn't have watched today.

And now back to sports---lots of talking head speculation about who gets in the tournament. I've seen the Canes from a #3 to out. Most have us on the bubble. Given how NCAA loves to bust us, I think we're in a must win today.

The Heats greatest asset is Florida income tax laws. $10 million earned in Fla costs you zero Fla income tax. In California about $1.2 million.
Didn't see Vince W dunk, but when Texans were on the HBO pre-season show there was a scene at Wilfork's house where he was shooting hoops on his outside court. Absolutely draining 3s. He's an athlete.
Makes sense. Kinda crazy anyway, esp before they've even played their senior year. Guys growing, changes schools to see better competition, etc
Yep, here's a 3 there so makes sense. thx
Catching up on a few days worth here. Good stuff. Wonder what star system Ariz uses? He shows Silvera as a 3 and Rivals/ESPN/etc all show him as 4. My meaningless ranking is a 4. He has the potential to be really good. On the running back conversation, Yearby was a solid college rb. Lots of those don't make it in the NFL. The slower ones might not even get a look. The real disappointment was Gus Edwards. Maybe the problem was hanging that bus name on him. His 235 had all the hit of a guy about 150. Literally never saw him run over anyone.

Oh, and any discussion of NFL front office incompetence that doesn't have the Browns on it gets an F for being incomplete.
Any Cane player who graduated in the last 15 years would have been better off playing for the current coaching staff than any other group. Richt was genius for negotiating a DC/OC/asst coach salary scale that enabled him to attract real talent. He wouldn't otherwise be successful. Ship heading in the right direction.
1. Better player---Kayaa 2. If had 11 alike----Duke

Richt is going to go with the QB who plays well under pressure and makes good decisions. Almost no college team has the DBs to stop 4 wides because they'll have a lousy match up or 2. Guys like Walsh, Kosar and Dorsey had at best average arms. They were great college qbs. In college, it's all about reads and throwing to the guy who is going to be open. Probably wide open. If Perry can make good decisions, handle the pressure and bring an athletic element we haven't had, he could be really special.

Wow, AQM drafted before Kayaa. Some guys skipping bowl games. AQM leap frogging those guys by sitting out the season. Goes to NFL with less wear and tear I guess.
Kayaa's weakness is he is horribly inaccurate under pressure and has no sixth sense to make small moves in the pocket to create time. Guys either have that or don't in my view. Another year wouldn't have made any difference. When the NFL stats boys looked at his accuracy with time (A-) and his accuracy with pressure (D-) his goose was cooked.
Elder to Carolina.
While Kayaa obviously could have worked on his weaknesses---awareness on pocket/dealing with pressure/footwork----I think he left because NFL contracts are all about getting your first four years done are really getting paid. That's why you see more and more guys coming out early even if won't be top tier draftee.
Go Canes, get ready to be pissed.
