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.

Pac Man on Ice

Former West Virginia star Adam "Pac Man" Jones was arrested today - well, technically he "surrendered" to police. I normally don't like to pick on people, especially those who are (or at least were recently) collegiate/amateur athletes. But Pac Man (and his agent) ran a smear campaign prior to this spring's NFL draft against Miami's Antrel Rolle. Rolle had an unusual arrest last summer, which nothing came of. Pac Man chose to make a big deal out of it, which increased Pac Man's stock, as it caused Rolle's to tumble a little.

But the tables have now turned. What's that they say about payback, Pac Man? I suppose you'll hear the word while you're locked up.

    From Espn's Uni-watch -

    The very persistent Clinton Yates has been bugging Uni Watch about a mid-1990s College World Series game featuring Florida State against Miami. As Yates tells it, after a rain delay in the fourth inning, both teams emerged with different uniforms than they'd originally been wearing, with one team going from pinstripes to non-striped and vice-versa for the other team. In Yates's words, "I have to know what happened. We all need to know." Well, he's half-right. Anyone?

    Do you remember this, Mike?

    I don't remember that for anything. I do remember the 1999 championship game though. I put out a few feelers for it. If I hear anything, I'll let you know.

    It obviously ain't a big deal. I was just curious as to whether you remembered it...

    I only remember that one game, too...
