Anyone else here at Coral Gables? Even more apathy then at Chestnut Hill

And why is their mascot a duck (Canes)?

Uggggh

Such a poorly coached team

And what makes it worse, on the other side, Larranaga isn't even standing. But Lykes and teammates know what to do.

Inspired me to finally look up why Tulsa is the Golden Hurricanes, given that Oklahoma doesn't have them.

"
The team opened the season and it was apparent that Tulsa was going to have a great year, and trying to seize some publicity for his team, Acher wanted to find a new nickname quickly.
After a remark was made in practice one day about "roaring through opponents," and because of their new jersey colors, he thought of Golden Tornadoes. However, he quickly found out that the name had been taken by Georgia Tech a few years earlier. From the tornado, he evolved meteorologically to the hurricane. A few days before the team left for a game against Texas A&M, Acher asked the squad to vote on the name, and thus "Golden Hurricane" was born."

Nice win tonight over NC St. team worked their ass off to get this win.
Seems like they’ve been alternating wins and losses for past month. JC has probably saved his job with this stretch. Not enthused by it but it’s almost certainly a reality.

Oh dear god be true
While he is no doubt a good coach - he is 67. I’d probably still be in favor of it as a BC fan (and as an ACC fan) but he won’t be there long haul. Then again if they hired the next Brad Stevens he wouldn’t be there too long either I suppose.

11 years and counting with no NCAA birth after nearly annual visits. Age is not a concern of mine.

Where are the rumblings coming from?

Do you see based on what Beilein was making at Michigan, BC paying their basketball coach 2.5 million? I do not. They don't care about basketball that much.
