This is the last "Gratuitous Cheerleader Pic" of the series. While I'm retiring the thread, I still may spin it off into its own separate blog sometime in the future.

Opening Night

The Hurricanes Baseball team opened the newly rechristened Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field last night in front of a sell-out crowd of 3000. The eventful night saw Aubrey Huff's induction into the Hurricane Sports Hall of Fame, Head coach Jim Morris' 1200th career victory, and the opening of the new modern press box above the grandstand.

National Letter of Intent Day

Yesterday's National Letter of Intent Day saw the 'Canes land their usual crop of blue chip talent. Many of this year's recruits were early signees or from outside of South Florida, so I only covered two for Canesport: Lamar Miller at Miami Killian High School and Kayvon Webster from Miami Pace High School.

With Miller, there was no doubt. Well dressed with a Miami tie and hat, Miller was intent on becoming a 'Cane.

Webster however, chose to dramatize his moment for the cameras. Dressed with a USF hoodie and a Miami tie on the outside, Webster sat down with two of his classmates and placed Miami and USF hat in front of him on the table. Walker then flipped the Miami hat behind him, put on the USF hat and then tucked in his Miami tie.

I've seen recruits bail on their oral commitments before: Jonathan Colon and Donte Thompson both come to mind. But in both cases they bolted for Gainesville, not Tampa. Who were they, you say? My point exactly.
