JCS 2-25-15

Feb 25, 2015 -- 5:51pm

Balls McWednesday brought to you by Zingales

 

Hour 1

Derrick Rose goes down… again. Is anyone really surprised? Derrick Rose suffered, yet again, another serious knee injury. Rose will be having surgery for the third time in three years. This time the 2011 MVP will undergo surgery to repair his medial meniscus in his right knee. The same surgery Rose underwent 10-games into last season. So far there is no timetable for his next return. According to WebMD it takes around 6 weeks to return to normal activities and could take up to 4-5 months for a full recovery.

The Bulls are currently the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference and .5 games ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Bulls fell below the Cavs or the Washington Wizards to drop to the 5th seed and lose home court advantage in the playoffs. The Bulls will still make noise in the playoffs behind a core of players that are used to playing without All Star Derrick Rose.

Unfortunately, because of his past Rose will always be doubted by coaches, general managers, and even by himself the next time he takes the court.

Dez Bryant has become the center of attention in some sort of sports conspiracy pseudo blackmail scandal. It’s as confusing, and interesting as it sounds. Check it out!

In news of class acts in the NFL, former the murder weapon and matching shell cases in the case pertaining to Florida Gators tight end Aaron Hernandez were found in his car and house. Former Florida Gators star doesn’t look like he’ll be playing in the NFL again. Its unfortunate that the former Florida Gator won’t be able to play alongside other outwardly racist NFL Gators, or NFL Gators accused of drug issues in Miami. Aaron Hernandez, the former Florida Gator, will just have to sit in his prison cell and ponder upon his life.

 

Hour 2

Well on you Coach Trey! Florida State’s golf team is doing big things!

The Big 10 is proposing a rule that will make freshmen ineligible to play basketball or football. Have they ever heard of redshirting? Most top conference teams redshirt their freshmen players so they will stay an extra year, and some to increase graduation rates.

What are the higher ups in the Big 10 thinking? Why be so concerned with graduation rates from student athletes? Your best student athletes are coming to college to get a degree. They’re coming to college to make it to the pros. Why would any top freshmen recruit want to go to a Big 10 school when they could easily go to any SEC school or Florida State?

Kevin Durant has now missed 30 games this season. He’s had reoccurring foot issues following a procedure to repair a Jones Fracture in his right foot. Now Durant is going through another procedure to insert a new screw to help relieve the pain in his foot. “He is expected to be reevaluated within a week to determine when he will return this regular season,” according to Thunder GM Sam Presti.

To add insult to injury, the Thunder don’t really seem to be missing their 2014 MVP. The Thunder have won 9 out of their last 10 games behind the MVP caliber play of Russell Westbrook who in his last 10-games is averaging close to 30 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds, and 1.5 steals per game.

 

Hour 3

Florida State basketball takes on the Miami Hurricanes tonight at 9pm. Another midnight game. Why can’t FSU just play at noontime? Jeff pitches a new idea to the ACC, “Halftime Hoops.” Let’s make it happen ACC. No one wants to fall asleep watching terrible basketball. At least it’s something to watch during lunch, besides Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless arguing who is the dumber between the two.

For all of you loyal listeners who are about to ship bottles of scotch to us, just a heads up, shipping alcohol is illegal. So make sure that you do all of the hard work, putting it in the box and taping it all up, at home before you get to the postal office. Jeff learned the hard way, and has an immense fear of lying to servants of the postal office. Jeff has no problem lying to people of higher authority, but postal workers are Jeff’s kryptonite.

JCS 2-23-15

Feb 23, 2015 -- 5:48pm

Man Cave Monday

Hour 1

We hope everyone had a better weekend than FSU’s sports teams. FSU Basketball expectedly dropped their game against Virginia. In a boring, defensive game, FSU lost to Virginia 51-41. The loss drops FSU back down below .500 in the ACC.

FSU was in the game until about 2-minutes left thanks to Virginia going scoreless for close to 10-minutes. Unfortunately FSU continued to do what they do best and that is not taking advantage of opportunities. Missed free throws, the Noles mantra, and struggling to finish at the rim are what kept FSU from stealing a game against the #2 team in the nation.

On a better note, Jameis Winston has been turning heads and opening the eyes of every NFL GM, coach, and scout at the combine. His image change started with an interview on Friday afternoon.

Jameis continued to impress scouts with his on the field performance at the Combine. He had analysts drooling after his throwing drills.

After this weekend, there’s no doubt Jameis Winston is the best quarterback in the draft. Good news for Bucs fans, because there is no way they pass him up.

Another Nole that is surprising people at the NFL Combine is Ronald Darby. Darby ran a 4.38/40, and has freakish numbers in his vertical and broad jump. P.J. Williams recorded a 40+-inch vertical earlier today as well.

Hour 2

Ira Schoffel joins Jeff for their weekly Monday talk around. If your case of the Mondays is too real this week, Ira and Jeff are here to make your week a little better.

Florida State baseball lost the series against Georgia this weekend, a series that has been dominated by Florida State over the past 10-years. Before this weekend FSU was 36-25 all time against Georgia and FSU has outscored Georgia by a combined score of 78-38. Unfortunately, the Noles couldn’t get anything going on defense or offense.

Jeff is already excited for Pirates’ Spring Training. According to Jeff there’s nothing better than a little spring training. Beautiful weather, beer, hot dogs, and great conversation, that’s what spring training is all about. Jeff is a sucker for spring training. Attention spring training vendors, if you see Jeff Cameron consider yourself lucky. There’s something about the spring training air that makes Jeff want to buy everything in sight. Jackets, mugs, bobble heads, even coasters! The consensus around the Jeff Cameron Show is that the worst pre-season game? The NBA. It’s inside and it’s just as boring as Florida State basketball.

 

Hour 3

Jeff opens up the final hour on more praise on Jameis Winston’s combine showing. Jeff refers to Michael Silver’s article on Jameis Winston, on how he is by far the number 1 pick.

Jameis’ on the field IQ has been compared to Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning. In an interview with Steve Mariucci, Jameis proves his IQ is off the charts.

Jimbo Fisher has made FSU a top 10 coaching job in all of college football. One of Jimbo’s best attributes is his ability to recruit. This past weekend Florida State landed 3 Junior Day CommitmentsThe Seminoles now have 9 commits in their 2016 recruiting class. The three recruits: Jamel Cook (ATH) who is 6-foot-5, 200-pound athlete that plays multiple positions in the defensive secondary. Cook and Kier Thomas are both from Miami Central. Cook is a 3-star recruit with a composite ranking of 533. His top offers are from Alabama, Clemson and Florida. Kier Thomas (DE) is 6-foot-2, 250-pounds. Thomas is another 3-star recruit with a composite ranking of 492. His other top offers are from Cincinnati, FAU, and Louisville. Joining our 2017 class is Zaquandre White (RB). White is 6-foot-1, 2016-pounds. He is not applicable for a composite ranking because he is only sixteen years old. White plays at Fort Meyers High. His top offers are from FIU, FAU and USF.

Hour 1

Attention world! The greatest game of all time will be played tonight (according to The Mothership). A game like no other! A game that will be hyped up beyond belief! Put your life aside because it doesn’t matter, because tonight at 9:00pm Duke plays North Carolina.

In a sport that hasn’t meant anything in years, if you have watched ESPN today, it would seem that tonight’s HUGE rivalry is the greatest thing since bread. Not sliced bread… since bread!

The real basketball game is tonight at 9:00 but it’s here at the Donald Tucker Center. FSU is taking on Boston College in a battle of average to below average ACC basketball teams. This time it’s for blood.

The biggest surprise for the Seminoles is the outstanding play out of Jarquez Smith. Jarquez had a great game against Duke, and another outstanding 15 point and 6 rebound performance against Georgia Tech.

Boston College is dead last in the ACC with a 1-11 record in conference play. FSU should have no problem getting the win and bringing their ACC record up to .500.

Anyone else struggling to figure out a great gift to get for Jeff? You can never go wrong with Stevie Nicks…. More importantly 78’ Nicks.

 

Hour 2

If you’re not watching Duke vs. North Carolina, because let’s face it you’re not, focus your eyeballs on the Boston College vs. FSU game. You’re not watching that either? Why not? It’s guaranteed to be a close game. Florida State is great at making games exciting down the wire. Well, maybe not exciting. At least it’s dollar dog night for FSU students.

Why wouldn’t students want to come to the game? You get beer! Listen Florida State Basketball, if you want people to come to the games make it dollar beer night. Let’s face it, after watching some Florida State basketball you’re going to need a beer or two... or five.

With the start of the segment, Jeff begins to reminisce as Van Halen comes through the speakers. He remembers pushing the needle down on the record in a time in his life where he didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life. The landlord was coming to lock up his apartment as Jeff was carrying his heavy records and decided he was just going to throw them all away. Jeff’s biggest regret in his life is throwing away those records, because they accounted for so many memories in his life.

Our friends down at Barineau bring us a special segment, Who’s Hot and Who’s Cold? Well, we’re here to tell you.

Who’s hot? The Jeff Cameron Show! That’s what’s hot! We don’t want to toot our own horn but in the past two years we have saved you from the falsehoods spewed from the mouths of the media members. Especially the falsehoods against Jameis Winston. Remember all of those reports that Jameis’ off the field issues would impact his draft stock? We’re looking at you Mel Kiper Jr. Mel Kiper Jr. said Jameis could fall down in the draft, and now Kiper is riding the coat tails of Mr. Winston saying he is by far the best quarterback in the draft.

Well guess what? None of that happened. Jameis Winston without a doubt will be the first pick in the NFL draft and head down to Tampa. If you’ve been listening to the Jeff Cameron Show for the past two years you would have heard day-after-day that Jameis Winston will still be the best quarterback in whichever draft he enters. The Jeff Cameron Show always has your best interests in mind. 

So after that, who’s cold? The southeastern United States! It’s freezing outside!

 

 

 

Hour 3

Larry Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals have agreed on a two-year extension.

Good for Larry. It’s always great when a player who has flourished with an organization and brought them to great places is given a great end of the career contract.

 

JCS 2-16-15

Feb 16, 2015 -- 3:00pm

Hour 1

FSU Baseball swept Oakland University this weekend for their 34th opening weekend sweep. While that was the headline of the weekend in FSU, the basketball team also got a win at Georgia Tech, but who really cares?

Jeff was at the grocery store this weekend talking baseball with some people, and when he brought up the basketball game the person said, “I didn’t know we played!” Come on basketball team! Get exciting!

Speaking of exciting, how about those dunks by Zach LaVine this weekend in the dunk contest! Maybe a little Vince Carter like?

 

While we’re on the subject of ferocious, Kevin Durant called out the media this weekend saying they “don’t know ___.” And that blank was filled with a not so nice expletive.

How about this new look Kevin Durant? Calling out Dwight Howard calling him a female reproductive organ, putting Chris Paul in his place when he tried to taunt the Thunder’s bench, and now calling out the media when they put OKC head coach Scott Brooks under fire.

Good for you KD. Get Mean! Way to take the #NotSoNice campaign to the next level! That’s exactly what the Thunder need, especially Kevin Durant; get relevant! Everyone in the NBA is buzzing around the Warriors, Grizzlies, and Hawks. Well, now with Westbrook’s 41-point and MVP performance in the All Star game combined with this angry Kevin Durant, the Thunder are back in the spotlight.

Florida State University baseball fans may get the moment they’ve all been waiting for! It’s only a matter of time before fans can now buy beer at Dick Howser Stadium. It can happen this year as long as the University and Aramark come to a deal to finalize all plans. What a glorious thing! Dollar dogs and beers; that’s what the foundations of America was built on.

 

Hour 2

Ira Schoffel joins the Jeff Cameron show to talk about all things going on in the realm of sports today. Ira talks about FSU Basketball and football surprises and disappointments.

 

Hour 3

Love was not in the building this past Saturday as FSU basketball earned another ACC win against Georgia Tech. XRM and Jarquez Smith led the way for the Noles in a great win to lead them to one game under .500 in the ACC.

Jeff brings us back on another old timers’ story on when Larry Nantz won the Slam Dunk contest. And since that dunk contest, there have been few dunk contests that have grabbed the eyes out of your skull until Saturday night. Zach LaVine lit it up at the Slam Dunk contest. Every dunk he threw down got me off the couch. As soon as that contest was over, I had to bust out the Nerf hoop and try and reenact every dunk.

 

There has been some surprising news from the sports journalism world. Someone outside of Tallahassee has put together an astonishingly well written piece on Jameis Winston and the NFL Draft.
 

 

 

 

 

JCS 2-9-15

Feb 09, 2015 -- 5:49pm

Man Cave Monday

 

Hour 1

Florida State (13-11, 5-6 ACC) takes on #4 Duke (20-3, 7-3 ACC) at the Civic Center tonight at 7:00 pm and ESPN. Come out to the game folks! The Noles need all the support they can get tonight against the Blue Devils. The Blue Devils control the all-time series against the Noles winning 33-9. Though Duke controls the series, 6 of the Noles’ wins over Duke have come under Leonard Hamilton. So, don’t be surprised if the Noles get a win tonight. Sure, if you’re a betting man pick Duke, but when the Noles are at home against top 5 teams, they sometimes find a way to surprise us all.

Duke is coming off of a huge win against ND where they won 90-60. The Blue Devils shot 81% in the first half and over 60% for the whole game. Jahlil Okafor lead Duke with 20 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals a block, and shot 9-11 from the floor in only 23 minutes. Justice Winslow pitched in 19 points and 11 rebounds. Matt Jones off of the bench contributed 17 points.

The Noles have won 3 out of their last 4 most recently over VT (73-65). Montay Brandon led the team with 16 points and 6 rebounds. XRM put together 12 points, 11 assists and 4 rebounds. The Noles’ trio of 7-footers will be put to the ultimate test against Jahlil Okafor.

Over the weekend, one of the most legendary coaches and legendary men in college basketball passed away. Legendary North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith died Saturday night in his home in Chapel Hill at the age of 83. At the time of his retirement Dean Smith was the winnings coach of all-time. Dean had an overall record of 1133-879. Dean had a total of 11 Final Four appearances, 17 ACC regular season titles, and 13 ACC tournament titles. It wasn’t just on the court where Coach Dean impacted the game, but it was also off the court.

Dean Smith is credited with ending segregation in the ACC and ran a program at North Carolina that had a graduation rate of 96.6 percent in his 36 years of coaching. He would often take African American players to restaurants where they were not allowed to sit, and dare people to say something. Dean Smith heads an impressive coaching tree of Larry Brown (2003-2004 NBA champion with Pistons), George Karl (1,131 career wins as NBA coach), Mitch Kupchak (Lakers GM), and Roy Williams (North Carolina coach since 2003-2004).

On a more positive note, Jeff brings us all on a story with Brian Dennehy. The famous actor Brian Dennehy. Most notable for his role as the big cop in Rambo: First Blood. Well, Jeff was watching him on set and clearly had the mannerisms of a recovered alcoholic. On the set, during a scene, Dennehy drank a glass of what he though was iced tea. It was whisky, and Dennehy’s face dropped to the ground and spit the whiskey across the room.

 

 

 

Jeff most likely ran into Dennehy when Jeff doubled as Val Kilmer’s stunt double.

 

 

 

Hour 2

Ira Schoffel joins the Jeff Cameron Show to reminisce on the legendary Dean Smith. Ira and Jeff also bring about the fact that our very own Leonard Hamilton is a coach that is on his way to a hall of fame career in the ACC. He’s the 11th most winningest coach in ACC history. Ira and Jeff also talk about the two ACC coaching powerhouses in Coack K and Leonard Hamilton and their matchup tonight at the Tucker Center.

Will Tiger Woods ever win another PGA Major? The latest from Tiger is injury after injury. When he used to play with injury and power through with his mental toughness, now he is noticeably hurting and struggles to finish a round. Just last week he shot a career worst and humiliating 82. There’s no way that Tiger could ever shoot that bad again if he tried, but is it the last we’ve seen Tiger?

Jeff and Tom think there’s still a small chance that Tiger can come back and still win a major. What Tiger needs to focus on is less on his club head speed, and more on scoring. He was so concerned with hitting as far as the big boys like Bubba Watson. Instead of trying to out hit the biggest drivers, he should focus on his finesse to lower his scoring. How many times have you played with that old guy who always wins because all he does is hit steady down the middle of the fairway and follows that up by making every putt?

For those of you who were wondering, the last time Duke was ranked 4th and played FSU, this happened…

 

Hour 3

NFL Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett came out today saying he is battling CTE. CTE is a disease that affects the brain and is caused by head trauma and is linked to depression and dementia.

The NFL is notorious for treating their former employees terribly. Many athletes are suing the NFL over injuries that have arisen after their career, but the NFL has either denied that they were the cause of such injuries, or the players lose in court and are left with nothing. More cases like Junior Seau are finding their way to courtrooms, but the NFL still has yet to change any policies toward benefitting their former employees.

Tony Dorsett is only 60-years old, was a Heisman Trophy Winner, and had a great career with the Dallas Cowboys. Dorsett said to ESPN, "It's very frustrating at times for me. I've got a good team of people around me, my wife and kids, who work with me," he said. "When you've been in this town for so long and I have to go to some place I've been going to for many, many, many years, and then all of a sudden I forget how to get there. Those things are frustrating when it comes to those things.

"I understand that I'm combating it, trying to get better. But, you know, some days are good. Some days are bad."

 

 

JCS 2-2-15

Feb 02, 2015 -- 5:42pm

Hour 1

Last nights super bowl has everyone feeling great. Unless, of course, you're a Seahawks fan. If you're just a fan of football with no vested interests in last night’s game, it was nothing short of a dreamlike Super Bowl. There were beautiful passes, terrible passes, mind jostling plays, broken arms, and it all ended in a mini brawl.

 

 

 

 

Tom Brady wins his fourth ring, cementing him as the best quarterback to play the game today. If he isn't number one on your list, he's surely number two behind Joe Montana; another 4-time Super Bowl champion.


Hour 2

Ira Schoffel joins the show to talk about last night. Our favorite part was definitely the Katy Perry halftime show. Let's be honest, Katy Perry could have done anything for 15-minutes and it would be entertaining. I mean, she's just so talented.


 

The pride and joy of Tampa, Warren Sapp, was arrested for soliciting and assaulting prostitutes over the weekend. There was an aggressive and verbal altercation in a hotel that spilled out into the lobby. This is a PSA to young, promising athletes. When you make a lot of money, be smart with it otherwise you'll have to fight off prostitutes in the lobby of a hotel because you can't afford them.

Hour 3

Sunday was a busy day in Tallahassee. Before the Super Bowl Miami came to town to take on the Seminoles at the Donald Tucker Center. A Miami squad that is only 4-4 in the ACC fell 55-54 to our Florida State Seminoles who are now 4-5 in the ACC. Florida State was led by Montay Brandon who put together 18 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block and was 7-7 shooting in the game. Phil Cofer struggled: didn’t score and only took 3 shots in 20 minutes. XRM struggled only taking 7 shots (2-7 shooting, 5 points, 3 ast, 6 rebounds).

Big play from the 7-footers; Kiel Turpin, Bojo, and Jarquez Smith combined for 27 points. Miami was led by guard Sheldon McClellan (13 points 3 assists). Florida State trailed by 16 during the course of the game, but Miami only scored 18 points in the second half after doubling that in the first half (36), and Miami didn’t score in the final 3:45 of the second half

Montay Brandon was the reason for the second half surge for the Seminoles.18:57 in the second half Montay Brandon energized the team with a steal followed by a huge slam dunk. 18:10 Brandon made a huge three pointer. 17:02 Brandon got the other steal and slammed it home again. Brandon had 12 of his 18 points in the second half.

Seminole Headlines will air from 3-6 p.m. on Thursday of this week. Be sure to get all of your National Signing Day information from Jeff, Ira, and Corey this Thursday.
