OK, the time has come for you to go ahead and openly confess it right now.
We all know that way back in early November, back when you were sitting around thinking about the Miami Hurricanes men's basketball team as they were just starting the 2012-13 college basketball season, your only thoughts were something along the lines of:
"I sure hope UM can just hold their own this year in the always tough ACC."
Well, don't look now but your Miami Hurricanes sit all alone in rarefied air at the very top of the ACC with a perfect 10-0 record.
Not only are they "holding their own" against their conference rivals and are clearly the best team in their conference, but are very possibly the very best team in the Country as of today.
Let me say it again just to make sure you heard me correctly: The Miami Hurricanes men's basketball team may simply be the BEST college basketball team in the United States.
That's right, I said it. But don't just take it from me, even the talking heads on the four letter sports network are saying it OUT LOUD to their national television audience watching the team in orange and green dominate like never before.
The U getting some serious love from ESPN? I know, who would have thunk it!
Before today's game against the North Carolina Tar Heels at the Bank United Center in lovely, balmy Coral Gables, the Hurricanes had already beaten FSU and Duke at home by 24 and 27 points respectively they had also badly beaten The Heels on the road by 9 points in another shocker.
But those wins paled in comparison to today's total and masterful domination of what was supposed to be one of the Nation's best teams in North Carolina. The Tar Heels and their high priced coach and their highly recruited players decided it would be nice to take a mid-Winter trip to sunny South Florida and wade into the clear blue waters of South Beach.
Unfortunately for the boys from Carolina they soon found themselves in some seriously deep water and suddenly discovered that they were also in way over their heads, stuck in a strong rip current and surrounded by several sharks that smelled blood in the water.
In front of another raucous, sold out crowd that included Miami Heat stars Lebron James and Dwayne Wade and their teammate and former Miami Hurricane James Jones, this Hurricane team put on a display of NBA-like basketball often seen down the road at the American Airlines Arena in Miami but rarely if ever seen before at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables.
Oh yeah, in all of the excitement and commotion, I almost forgot: The score!
Well suffice it to say that the local sharks (Hurricanes) first circled, then swarmed in, attacked and killed the helpless, tired and eventually lifeless swimmers from the Outer Banks (Tar Heels) by an incredible 26 points.
Final Score: Sharks 87, Swimmers 61.
