    Signings for most other sports were announced in today's newspaper, but nothing on men's basketball. Any news on signings for the men?

    Devin Robinson for the men and Dyandria Anderson for the women both signed yesterday.

    Robinson is listed as both a 4 star and a 5 star depending on the service you look at.

    I read somewhere that Francis was waiting for some family members to get back in town. I think it is supposed to happen today or Monday.

    I believe that Chiozza, Francis and Robinson have all signed. UF traditionally announce after everyone they are waiting on has signed or picked someone else in the early signing period.

    So UF could be ready to announce at any time or UF could be encouraging Winslow to sign and holding off with an announcement to see if he does.

    I had heard some rumblings of this at one point, but others shot it down. Apparently too difficult to graduate early in his district.

    I fully expect us to get someone in the late signing period, maybe a late bloomer, but more than likely a kid who gets cut loose in coaching turnover this summer.

    I have asked this too as Hayes is an honor student. No one has said anything to suggest this is anything more than message board wishing.

    He would have to complete all of his core courses in spring and summer to reclassify. I am sure only Hayes, his family and UF know how many core courses he has left.

    Right - Core Courses.

    That is one difficulty with the Florida State University System's (SUS) basic requirements is all the required core courses. Easy to do if you attend a school with Block scheduling, but somewhat difficult if not.

    Most people don't realize that the basic entry requirements to a Florida SUS institution are among the most difficult to accomplish in the Nation. This is largely due to the strong 2 + 2 set up here with the mass of Higher Education students in Florida (circa 70-75% or so) attending the Florida College Systems (FLCS), formerly, the community college system. California is the most similar state system, albeit not very similar, with 10 Research Universities (e.g. Berkeley, UCLA - note that Stanford and USC are private schools), 35 State Universities (e.g. Cal State Long Beach, etc.) and 110 community colleges.

    A few years ago, Florida began modeling more closely on the California system, by allowing several of the less expensive schools (Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, Santa Fe, etc) to award bachelors degrees. This was when the FLCS title replaced the Community College System (CCS) title. There are 28 public FLCS institutions, with Miami-Dade being one of the largest schools in the Nation. UF, USF and UCF are also among the 10 largest schools in the nation, a problem that California avoided by limiting the enrollment at their Research Universities to roughly 25,000 students. UF, UCF and USF are all well over 40,000.

    From an instructional perspective (student oriented system), California has a far better design that the pork-chop political entity that is the Florida SUS and FLCS. Fortunate, roughly 10 years ago, the Florida SUS modeling on the Florida CCS, went to independent boards that theoretically manage the university and it's development. Unfortunately, these are mostly business people, who neither understand nor respect traditional academic traditions that have passed down through 500-600 years.

    Context is everything - Epi-genetics that showed how off base Francis Crick was. One example in sports is the Home Field Advantage.
