The Connect: 08/27/09

We already have a penis shark, thanks, and his name is Sean Spence: Eye on the U completes its countdown of 60 'Canes and naturally Sleepy is numero uno. That's no. 1 even with all-male slumber parties factored in, so really he's more of a Giant Throbbing Dick Shark -- but now we're just quibbling.

The Orlando Sentinel weighs in on why UM-FSU isn't sold out. Three of the reasons are slams on Tallahassee, so...makes sense to me. Why I won't be there: liveblogging here! Mark your calendars.

Practices are now at 5:42am, to avoid thunderstorms. Um...that's really early.  In worse news, Dyron Dye is in a knee braces with, according to Rivals, crutches at the ready.  I miss the days without Internet, when you didn't have to know these things.

Randy Shannon set off a metric fuckton of speculation when he stated yesterday that "I just received three transfers trying to transfer to the University of Miami. It's an opportunity that players see at [UM], that we're going to give guys a chance to play. We want competitive young men to come in and compete." He's since stated that he's not accepting any of them and his team is on the floor. (It was probably that asshole Favre. He's like a kid, you know.)

Bryce Brown, cleared. Which really just means the NCAA isn't trying.

Finally!  They get around to him.
