Miami Hires George Mason's Larranaga as New Head Coach

1

In a shocking move, the Hurricanes were able to pull Jim Larranaga away from George Mason. I live in Northern Virginia. Larranaga and his wife live right down the street from my buddy's parents. His son John (who played at GMU) lives in the area and played on my men's league team one season. Most figured he'd spend another 5 years or so at GMU and then retire. Larranaga, 61, may not coach too much longer, but he serves as a major upgrade from Frank Haith.

The pessimist in me looks at it like this: He had offers from Nebraska, Coastal Carolina, Delaware St, and Tennessee St. There is slim pickings this time of year. But Tennessee St. and Delaware St. offers don't provide optimism that we picked up a guy that can help us compete with Duke and UNC. He cites his best attributes as his physicality and defense. That's nice, but we need SHOOTERS! The optimist in me loves his highlights in the video. He is strong as an ox and has hops. He also has very quick hands, as he picked a couple pockets with relative ease. We needed depth in the backcourt and with one scholarship still open it was nice to fill a need. Hopefully he adds a consistent jumpshot to his game.

"It (confidence) comes from Tajh," receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. "Everybody thought last year that Tajh should’ve had more opportunities to lead this team. Now that he’s out there, guys feel comfortable with him. Off the field, we get along with the quarterback very well. It’s more of a team thing than last year it feels like on the offensive side."

Via Heather Dinich, which supports the rumors we heard about KP not having the full support of the team because of his attitude (re: already being paid well) about football. In fairness, even up until the SC game I did not believe Boyd was ready to play a full game. The lack of coaching was evident in his play (and Parker's).

Garcia "suspended indefinitely" at Sakerlina

Awwww. Heard he showed up at a mandatory event reeking of booze last evening. Garcia on March 24: "I’ve got to be smarter. That’s the bottom line. ... Nothing bad is going to happen again. It’s a guarantee."
