The Book of Mike

"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

Quick Break from Baseball

I saw a very nice post from our friends over at The Cub Reporter today, but I wanted to clarify his statement on the Hurricanes being criminals. Yes, the University of Miami has had a somewhat checkered past in terms of the student-athletes they’ve admitted, but since being placed on probation in the mid-90s, the program has really been turned around. Not there really is such a thing, but if there were, Hurricane sports in many ways could be considered a model collegiate sports program (even if you don’t think that, please let me believe it since the athletic department receives a healthy chunk of change from me each year).

Besides, for all of you Chicago folks, the Hurricanes will be starting Jarrett Payton at running back this week against the Florida State Seminoles (a better place to look, by the way, if you’re looking for crime in college sports). Yes, that’s right – the son of the late, great Walter Payton of Bears fame.
