Morning Miller On Sports - April 4, 2012 | HS Sports
You Should Know – The University of North Florida baseball team upset the top-ranked Florida Gators on Tuesday night, 10-5. In front of a crowd of 2,144 on Dusty Rhodes Field at Harmon Stadium, the Ospreys recorded 13 hits and scored 10 runs, the most allowed by the Gators all year. Florida opened the game with back-to-back singles and went up 1-0 after an Ospreys’ fielding error. UNF responded with a four-run second inning. With arguably the program’s most impressive win, the Ospreys tied the all-time series at 5-all. UNF travels to Johnson City, Tennessee, for a three-game series, which starts tomorrow, against East Tennessee State.
Jaguars Bite of the Day – The Jaguars began their offseason conditioning program Monday. Over the past few months, the weight room was renovated and the locker room revamped. On the franchise’s new commitment, Jaguars safety Dwight Lowery stated, “When I first got here I didn’t really feel like this place was really committed to anything. …it needed to be taken up a level, and it has.” Since Jacksonville is one of six teams with a new head coach, the Jaguars get a two-week head start on their offseason program.
Tweet of the last 24 hours – @JohnOesher (John Oesher, Jaguars.com senior writer) “#Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert said toe injury last season was no big deal. Tongue in cheek, he said he put a “kiddy” band aid on it, played on.”
College Nugget – From Warchant.com, Florida State kicker Dustin Hopkins talks about his left knee injury and getting ready for the 2012 season.
Broadcasting Note – Lakers reserve Josh McRoberts hit a strange buzzer beater the other night. Especially since it’s Josh McRoberts and not Kobe Bryant or Dwyane Wade. And he made the shot to end the first quarter against the New Jersey Nets.
Strange Thought of the Day – After winning the national championship last night over Notre Dame, the Baylor women’s basketball program became the first college team to go 40-0 in a season. Could Baylor’s Brittney Griner have done more by going to powerhouses Connecticut or Tennessee?
Stat(s) of the Day – According to NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, wide receiver Michael Floyd looked like a top-10 pick at Notre Dame’s Pro Day. Mayock said, “What you get with Michael Floyd, you get a 6-foot-3, 220-pound wide receiver who gets tremendous breaks in and out. His explosion off the line of scrimmage is exceptional – I would compare it to [Justin] Blackmon.” A four-year starter for the Irish, Floyd is their all-time leader in catches (271), receiving yards (3,686) and receiving touchdowns (37).
Link of the Day – A golf fan’s dream was nearly ruined when his dog ate his four tickets to The Masters. After the dog expelled the remains, Russ Berkman pieced them together again. It all ended okay because Berkman’s still going to Augusta.
Video of the Day – Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE ring Monday night. I guess his health concerns aren’t too disconcerting.
Question of the Day – Is there a business model where the NFL can unveil “new” uniforms every week of the off-season?
