Roger Tomas hired as baseball assistant

The Hurricanes aren't in Omaha. But the baseball program is still making news.

Today, UM announced the hiring of former infielder Roger Tomas as an assistant coach. Tomas was here not too long ago. He started 186 games from 2003-2007 and spent the last three years in the Detroit Tigers farm system.

He will work with outfielders and coach first base. More than anything, Tomas will be a good role model for Canes players. He was named the 2007 ACC Male Scholar Athlete of the Year and served as team captain.

One thing Jim Morris talked about after his team was eliminated from the postseason by the Gators was how he felt there was a problem with team chemistry. Tomas, being a young guy, will probably be able to relate to some of the young players and watch out for it a little better than anybody else on Morris' staff.

University of Florida President Bernie Machen, in a recent assessment of national universities, gave HIS school the highest-possible ranking, "distinguished," as he also did Harvard, Princeton and Yale universities.
Other Florida universities, however, didn't rate as highly in HIS assessment of schools for U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings.
Machen ranked no other Florida university as distinguished or in the second-highest category, "strong." Florida State University and the University of Miami were rated in the middle category of "good," while the rest of the state's major universities were rated as either "adequate" or "marginal."

"To say that Florida is better than Harvard or Columbia or such places is an exercise in hubris," Eckerd College President Donald Eastman said. In last year's (U.S. News & World Report) ranking, UF was No. 49 overall. Harvard, Princeton and Yale topped the list.
In HIS assessment, Machen rated all three universities as distinguished along with UF and five other schools. …
He listed Florida State and Miami as good. In the last edition of the rankings, Miami was 51st, and Florida State was 102nd.

THATS FACE GAURDING !!! Throw The FLAG ! Great Call Zebra !

Not only did U jump the shark Cane Fan ... They also tore Ur OB Fish Bowl Down.

Welcome to the 21st. Century Homeless U .

Manny or whoever wrote the headline - It's T-O-M-A-S. I know it's a blog, but pick up the media guide and get it right.

It's not unfair to say Roger Tomas has about as much heart as anyone who has ever stopped on the grass at The Light. He'll help the team get back to where UM baseball belongs.

What happened to Ray Fuentes?

How did we let all these UF and FSU jerks in here? They are morons who know nothing. They think that winning a couple of national championships, ONLY BECAUSE USC BAILED THEM OUT TWICE, makes them a dynasty.
We'll soon see who's back on top and who's looking up at "THE U" once again.
So, GatorScum, keep up ur smack-talking, but remember, what goes around, comes back around.
You'll see...
GO CANES!
Guck the Fators!!

Umike you are the stupidest person I have ever seen submit a post.

LIVING THE LIFE OF RILEY

It's amazing how important trash-talking The U is to these pathetic gayturd and it's-OK-if-we-cheat fsu "fans". They're an embarrassment to the schools they supposedly support. As for the UF prez' remarks that UF is somehow "distinguished", EX-tinguished is more like it. What a crock of self-congratulatory nonsense. Oh, well, what more would you expect from schools that generate "fans" like the losers who have nothing better to do than taunt Cane fans here. Know what? They won't have much to talk about, and SOON!

Here's a link to the Bio for the "journalist" that wrote the story about UM on Bleacher Report! WOW! Who's his agent, Master P????

Not sure what I love most, the Bear Bryant fidora, the greasy weave, or his "Pledge" to The U of ALA!

HE'S ALL YOURS SEC!

Kehoe, c'mon man! This is beneath even you!

P.S. Nice reporting on the cost savings going on at USF Green. It shows a lot of foward thinking on behalf of ONE of the state run schools! Once again Miami will lead by example on our way out of this financial meltdown!

I PERSONALY CANNOT WAIT UNTIL UF ANNOUNCES THAT THEY TOO WILL BE SAVING MONEY ON TRANSPORTATION TO/FROM IN-STATE GAMES!

Go 'canes!

Wow Kehoe, you're good! Here's a link to the bio of the other "journalist" you linked us to on Bleacher Report! He even has his own avatar on NCAA 2009! He stumps for the Buckeye's, but I'll bet you right here that he graduated from UF's School of Journalism! Nice way to throw off the "scent"!

HEY MICRO PENIS MAN, TIME TO BUY THAT CORVETTE

Go 'canes!

This Gaytor Troll is the same mental midget who claims to be in Europe on the other blog. This guy needs some serious professional help.

Everyone should ignore this inbred hillbillie and let's just talk about the U.
