Tough loss. Hang tough Cane Cagers you will shine.

I understand the competition to recruit a guy like Thabeet is fierce. I wish I know what Calhoun did to lure him. The same teams always seem to get these athletic 7 footers. The only problem is I am sure Calhoun will only have Thabeet one or maybe two years tops before he goes pro unless they have changed the rules.

Here's to Frank Haith landing some skilled, coordinated 7 footers. Popa types don't count .

Typical Canes. Lotsa hype, but they're nowhere near top shelf. They'll always think getting a ticket to the dance is the same as going home with the prom queen. 2nd tier program at best.

Funny, the Gators also lost. The difference is we lost to a 2nd ranked team, the Gators lost to a nobody team.

Nobody here said they were a top tier program yet, but the recruiting that Haith has pulled off even this year is bringing us higher than ever before.

Too bad you can't say the same for your team...
