sailing into break

Summer break begins today.  Weekend posting being already pretty much shut down for the season, it's only Monday, Tuesday, and possibly Wednesday that you'll miss out of me.  Here are a few toys and things to tide you over til then:

- I should've made note of this earlier, but the official Favorite Clemson Blog - Block-C - is packing its bags.  This is a bummer, but it is the way of blogdom.  The ACC Roundtable is sadly left without a Clemsonite.

- ESPN has updated its recruiting rankings, and in a bit of a surprise, UVA now checks in at #24.  I would've put the class in the 30s or 40s, but then I don't do exhaustive comparisons to all 119 other I-A teams.  (Also, ESPN is somewhat more enthusiastic about some of our recruits than other sites are.)  If and when Eli Harold commits - and that's a recruitment that'll wrap up pretty soon - things'll get even better.

- I promised new toys, and here you go: a depth chart for lacrosse, just like the one for football.  You can find it on the same page as the other ones.  I'd like to do a baseball one but positions are just awfully fluid, even more so than these other sports.  I mean, what do you do when your catcher goes out to center field?  And there's no such thing as a second-stringer for each of three outfield positions, for example.  So for now, enjoy the lacrosse one, and feel free to point out any errors you might notice.

- Last toy, and then I'm out for now.  If you want to follow, over the weekend, what I'm doing with my summer break, click here.  It is a boat race that you can track, which will start Saturday noonish and end Mondayish.  Directions to follow me and cheer for glorious victory: ensure you are looking at the Shore Course, and then find the boat named Spectre, which is in the Racing D class.  It'll be kind of gobbledegook until the race starts tomorrow, but Saturday afternoon, Sunday, and Monday, if you've got nothing better to do and curiosity gets the better of you, check in and see how we're doing.

See you next week.
