The Connect: 03/02/09

Perhaps an academic decathlon would have served Amidst Senior Day and the NFL combine and upcoming draft - you know, that thing going on that we're ignoring because we only have one guy in it and he will not be going in the first few rounds unless a plague takes out approximately 89 percent of graduating seniors (don't put it past me FINGER TENT MANIACAL LAUGHTER) - AllCanes relays comments from ESPN's Todd McShay:

"It's been building the last few years. You look at Larry Coker when he took over as head coach and this program as a whole got lazy recruiting...I expect two to three years from now we'll be looking at that year's combine and saying 'you know what, they're back to being Miami with four, five or six guys in the first day that are prospects right now."

At any rate, Jeff Luc's highlight reel is pretty much ridiculous.  Kinda like his pink backpack, but I'm certainly not gonna tell him:
