    It's like they have no chemistry.

    We always play miserably at Conte Forum, even our best teams have had trouble up there. Coach L not being there didn't help matters.

    We'll still make the tournament, but it won't be a deep run.

    Big game tonight vs. #1 UVa. Last time we hosted #1 it was a great time indeed.

    This team is a huge disappointment. I know Bruce is out, but I had great expectations coming into the season (thought Sweet 16 would be likely and Elite 8 a big possibility). One and done if they make the tourney.

    That loss to Wake Forest is as bad as the football team's loss to Pitt. To me that makes us a bubble team.

    Agree, this team showed zero energy against UVA and that loss to BC... very inconsistent team.

    UVa was understandable, though. They've got probably the best D in the country...though I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the style of ball they play will ultimately wind up knocking them out of the tournament, because someone will get hot against them, it happens to all of Bennett's teams.

    BC...just a perfect storm. Coach L was out, and we never play well up there, not even our best teams.

    Bruce Brown being out really hurts us. As I've said, we'll still make the tournament, but we're probably a one and done type of team, not a deep run or anything, unless something really crazy happens.

    Another loss, to Sorrycuse. This team stinks, no sugarcoating it. I don't know if it's just youth, or bad luck or a mix of both.

    We're going to get in the tourney by the skin of our teeth, but it hasn't been a lot of fun to watch all year.

    Nice win against Notre Dame last night..was working a high school tournament double header and missed it. Huge road win for our tournament chances.

    Craig Kugilowski the DL coach left...to go to Alabama it sounds like.

    Huge loss. Not so much in recruiting, but definitely coaching-wise. Hopefully we get someone like Kelvin Patrick from NCState or something.

    Big loss but like you say not much of a recruiter. I'd take Patrick in a heartbeat.

    As far as "Coach Kool" went for recruiting, I thought he was awful at it, absolutely awful. Seemed very disinterested, and we didn't land the guys we should have on the defensive line. However, I did think he did a great job with the guys we had on the DLine this year, especially the younger guys. That will be a huge loss there.

    We need a guy that can recruit on defense the same way guys like Hartley are recruiting on offense. We had a great class this year...definitely could have been better, but it was still a pretty awesome one. Give me a guy like Patrick, or even Greg Mark again. No reason we can't get those types.

    I think Patrick is making something like $350K/year at NCSt? We could offer him $500k (or something higher) and no state income tax in Florida. Plus, he's a UM Alum...look at the wonders he did with NCSU's line this year. Would be a great hire, and I thin he'd do a great job recruiting.

    I read coach Kool played for Saban at Toledo. **** both of them


    Who is he replacing at Bama ? I would interview that guy for sure. Bama's D line is always solid.

    He went to the NFL I think (the guy he replaced)...plus, Bama plays a different style of DLine play than we do at UM.

    I don't think Kool is long for Bama though, he strikes me as staying there for a few years and then heading for the NFL, which is where I originally read he was going to begin with (Tampa Bay).

    **** that lazy bastard.

    Canes landed Jeremiah Payton, a 4* WR for the 2019 class.

    Getting some more studs on offense...we need some recruiters on D like the guys we have for offense.

    Agree. I am a little concerned with what the D will look like the next couple years. Hopefully they can get a few to stay for their Senior year.

    Kelvin Patrick's name is building up some steam. I really hope he's the guy as the DL coach.

    Tracy Rocker is another candidate to look at for DL coach...wouldn't be a bad one.

    Hoops team gets BC @ home this weekend.

    Need to win 2/3 to be considered a "Lock" for the tourney, or 1 and get an ACC tourney win for "lock" status, I'd think.

    Last 3 are vs. BC, @ UNC, vs. VT.

    Also, baseball season has started.

    Took 2/3 from Rutgers, should have been a sweep, but the team melted down on Sunday, and we got waxed yesterday by Missouri.

    Jim Morris' last season.

    Going to be tough but they should at least beat BC (this time). If not they don't deserve to be in the tourney.

    I agree. They should knock off BC and VT, both being at home, note the word *should*. Both of those are always tough road games, but thankfully they're at home. I still can't believe we lost that one at BC.

    4-3 Gators.

    Canes must have finally realized they were playing UF or something.

    I have yet to see this team dominate an opponent. They are always in these close games and just scraping by when they do win. Very frustrating season.
