    I'd be really interested in doing one of those tests - especially since I grew up with a step-Father and never learned much about my biological Father & that side of my family.

    I just have some skepticism on the accuracy of the findings for one and two, makes me nervous about what the long-term implications of a private company having my DNA on file are.

    Great article on how this season qualifies as a major disappointment for Miami.

    They had seven ESPN top 100 recruits but yet went nowhere.

    They have zero recruits coming in now, because of the FBI cloud hanging over the program.

    Frankly I can see Larranaga hanging it up in another year. Caputo has carried him with good recruiting, but I'm told the donors are starting to see that L doesn't have that "it" factor anymore.

    He will never walk away from guaranteed money (millions) through his current contract ending in 2022. He will only walk away if they reach a mutual buyout or he gets fired.

    Trust me, they still love L in the 305

    If Brown comes back (entered draft but has not signed with agent), they will be a top 15-20'ish team next year.

    You're wasting your time. If Jollay's kids were on a bus teetering on a bridge and Coach L was the only one that could save them, he'd rather take his chances rather than accept help from Laranaga. Its gone beyond the point of rationale.

    I don't love or hate Larranaga, but the article does give him a lot of credit for building a program that now has an expectation to make the tourney each year.

    Yes, but the theme of the article is that of underachievement.

    Look, I don't claim to know everything nor to have read every paragraph of the article, but it's easy to detect malcontent spreading on campus.

    Nats fire managers for much, much less.

    I feel like Jollay's criticisms of Coach L have been very rational. He's an unbiased voice.

    The expectations among ACC fans have always been a bit much. They want not only NCAA berths but expectations success in that tournament.
  14. Larranaga at Miami is as secure as the Pope at the Vatican. Bank it.

    Reading this from the beginning - some gold in it.

    Including this post from April 22, 2015.

    Looks like 3 Miami players have declared for the draft (Walker, Brown & Huell). None are hiring agents, but sure seems like there is an urgency to get out of dodge, as only one of them is probably a legit prospect.

    What coincidence! I just declared myself for the draft too!

    Huell surprised me, but declaring for the draft without hiring an agent has no downside. All 3 are likely eventual NBA players.

    This is actually slightly encouraging to me since you say that Walker has not signed an agent since that means there is still a chance he comes back.
