Wow... I'm on FIRE this week... (helps to be on Spring Break!)

roachcane77

A National Championship in Basketball would be pretty freakin' awesome!

86Cane

Roach is all alone in his thoughts.

So where is everybody else?

JCane

Nice videos and ongoing articles, 86.

Personally, I don't like being alone with a roach, unless I have a rolled-up newspaper or a shoe, at least! Nothing personal, Roach. Enjoy spring break.

I wish I fully shared the optimism about a likely deep run into the NCAA tnmt, although it definitely is possibly if they play smart ball and with the chemistry they showed in January and early Feb. They certainly have the talent to do so, as do at least a dozen teams. I guess I'll have a better sense where they're at after seeing whether they fully show up for the ACC tnmt.

86Cane

Roger That!

Terrance Sullivan

Hopefully our Canes are cutting down the nets in Atlanta on April 8th.

Sarasota 'cane

Dave Matthews, Sting, Flo Rida, the Muse, Ludakris, Zac Brown band, and about 10 other acts are doing free concerts in Centennial Park during the Final Four weekend! It is going to be crazy up here! Miami has just as much right as anyone else to be here!

Go 'canes!

KiriJax

It's perfect. April 8th America time will be April 9th Japan time. My 49th birthday (I'm in denial about the 49th part). What a way that would be to celebrate my last 40s b-day! I want one of those crystal balls for my birthday present!

The Dude

Weird night, cant sleep. Go Canes!

Jack

Canes need to make at least the sweet 16, damn it!

UMike

Miami Northwestern Athlete JoJo Robinson was at the Miami-Clemson game with coaches...we NEED to flip this kid.

LB

I think the Sweet 16 is possible. It would be nice to get a #2 seed, but it seems to ride on the ACC tournament.

I can't stop raving about UM's schedule. UM never plays consecutive road games, has seven home games, and doesn't leave the state of Florida until October 17th. The last three games are all excellent: at Duke, vs. UVA, and at Pittsburgh.

A lot of wonderful possibilities, eh?

Winning Season - Check
Ticket to the Dance - Check
Respect - Check
ACC Champions - Check
Props - Check

Next stop ACC tourney, Showing out at the Dance, More Respect, Possible Title Run?

Go CANES!!!

Less than 2 months to go.....

Everyone do me a favor. Fill in the blank:

If Miami doesn't AT LEAST make it to the _____ round of the NCAA Tournament, I'll consider it a failure.

LB

Second.

Any NCAA news lately?

Ohio_Cane

NCAA Bball Player of the Year announced at 1:00. Will post here when it comes out.

j.w.

Good morning, all- Hawaii: nothing new

CoCane

This is the highest ranked hoops team ever. The most talented team ever. The 1st outright conference regular season champs ever...

That means this team has to go farther than EVER in the NCAA tourny. At least making the elite 8 or failure. Imo...

Hassan

miami is about to drop a motion to dismiss the charges like 300 page document. old pee wee allen is coming on espn otl

congrats coach L ACC COY

LOL I guess my expectations are lower than everyone else's, I consider this season a huge success in and of itself.

Hassan


SEC pull: Mario Cristobal went from $522k as a Sun Belt HC to $475k as an SEC OL coach

Our OL coach makes about 170k

Ohio_Cane

Voters got it WRONG! Erick Green over Larkin for MVP by 38-23 votes? LOL

I demand a recount/revote. Haha

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly CGNC.

CoCane

I think Green deserved the MVP. He's hands down the best player in the conference & the most important player for his team. HE IS HIS TEAM.

CGNC,

The season has been a success but not a HUGE success. It'll be a huge success if they go deeper in the tourny than ever before. That's the goal & expectations of the team themselves. If that's what they expect as a team, that's what we should expect as fans...

TonyCane

Hassan, I almost spat up lunch when I read that!

Willie Will in Missouri

Funny story,

So over the weekend I'm at a basketball game talking to Corn Elder's mom, and people start coming up to me congratulating me for going to Da U thinking I was Corn. LMAO

Maybe bcuz I had my Canes shirt on too??? LOL

Actually Sarasota, the party is taking place this weekend (and next weekend) in Miami (Ultra Music Festival). It goes from Friday through Sunday and will host the best DJ's in the world and they expect for 340K to attend.

Willie Will in Missouri

Ohio,

Not winning the ACC tournament will be a failure to me, Elite 8 for the big dance

BEERicane

Eric Green deserved MVP. You never saw him disappear during games and was always a threat to score. Larkin disappeared too often, especially in these last 2 weeks which cost him the honor.

Sebastian5706

In my opinion I dont see how the ACC can name Green as the POY

Shane was the best player on the best team with shooting % edge to Shane

Shane also was a far better defender then Green was

A 13-18 4-14 with a POY makes no sense

In the 2 games against VT Shane put up better stats the Green did

Green deserved votes just not enough to walk away with POY

BEERicane

Green AVERAGED 25.4 ppg - leads the nation

Shane averages 13.7 ppg.

RB and Asst numbers are similar. Takes Shane 2 games to score what green does in 1.

CoCane

Eric Green is the best player on the floor in every game I've seen VT play. Including Duke, Miami & NC State. You know he's the only player you have to stop & he still drops 20-30 points on the regular. He drives to rim, comes off screens, pulls up off the dribble & still dishes out a healthy number of assists. With out him, VT might not have won a single game...

Sebastian5706

BEERicane
I understand what youre saying about Green. He is a very good player

In my opinion more should go into it then just scoring

Shane can play D while the few games I watched VT Green couldnt guard me and im a 46 year old slightly out of shape bum

If you factor in all parts of their games I feel Shane has the better overall game

I cant seem to give the nod to someone whose team is 13-18 4-14 in league play

BEERicane

Green is getting robbed of Naismith talk bc his team is so bad. Put him on Miami, he is NPoTY.

BEERicane

And Miami would be undefeated and #1 with him on the court.

CoCane

Lol! He rob you before you bounce the ball twice. He's guarding the opponents best player & still leading the NATION in scoring. You're smoking some potent shyt dawg. Lol!

Sebastian5706

I havent seen all of VTs games so I cant make an accurate read on his defensive play

I just know that in the games I did watch he was a no show on the defensive side

Scoring is great but when you score 25 then give up 30 to the players your guarding is a washout

Winning the ACC with Green=no chance
Without Shane we dont win the ACC

In no way does his deserve to be considered a NPOY candidate

You say VT might of lost every game the played without Green. Well they finished last with Green so nothing changed

Im not denying that he is a very good player. Im just saying he doesnt deserve ACCPOY

Barry Jackson:

### UM linebacker Eddie Johnson continues to hurt his chances of getting back on the Hurricanes football team. Johnson has left school, at least temporarily, and is not enrolled this semester, UM tells us.

Johnson, who was third on the team with 59 tackles and had a team-leading 7.5 tackles for loss, remains on indefinite suspension.

UM people are highly skeptical about his chances of being reinstated, though Al Golden has not ruled it out. His missteps include tardiness, not showing up and other violations.

Where will the 2013 ACC regular-season champion Miami Hurricanes play during March Madness? The University of Miami and Buffalo Wild Wings will host the Official Selection Sunday Watch Party from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Sunset Place location across from the University of Miami campus.

Sebastian the Ibis and the Hurricanes cheerleaders, with WQAM, the flagship station for the Miami Hurricanes, will be broadcasting live on location. If the No. 1 seed @CanesHoops team plays in the ACC Championship game, the team and staff will not be at the selection show event.

Doors and an expanded patio area will be open for the FREE event at 5 p.m. and the NCAA Basketball Championship Selection Show will air at 6 p.m. on CBS. Fans in attendance will be eligible for giveaways, purchase 2013-14 season tickets and renew their Hurricane Club memberships.

Al needs to quit dicken around with E.J. He had no problem getting rid of Paul and Finnie. He ain't no dam prima donna, so I say let him take the long walk and find somebody who wants to waear the uni proudly. We ain't got no time for no Tudes!

The kid is a distraction...He waisted all his chances and the possibility of going to the NFL via NFLU...It's all between the ears...Good luck EJ.

Congratulations to Coach Larranaga, Larkin, Scott and the team for all the awards they are getting. This is a season I'll remember forever. Still three more nets to cut down though! Can't wait for the weekend.

Montreal-Cane

Canes were down 9-0 in the 3rd
Big Jim needs some Viagra.

KiriJax

The Canes have cut the lead to 9-4. But playing lousy today.

Montreal-Cane

11-4 Illinois State in the 4th

orange 'n green in the vein

Larkin = most important player on the best ACC team.

Green = most important player on the worst ACC team.

I bet Green didn't sell a single ticket this year either and their Duke game didn't have a front row seat on the road for sale the night before tip-off on the secondary market with a $9,999.99 asking price like it did for the Miami game.

All these media awards are instantly slanted against any Hurricane contenders in every sport so I'm not surprised they got it wrong. If The Pimp didn't have that Final Four run already on his resume I'd bet he wouldn't have won ACC COY either with the same results at UM this year.

Montreal-Cane

I just listened to Jim Morris on WQAM interview from last night and i felt to sleep...This guy is done.

roachcane77

Just a shame about EJ44... guess I'll need to find a NEW defensive LOF at the scrimmage in Naples this year. (I found EJ44 in Ft. Myers last year.) Best of luck Eddie...

Roach...here are your clues:

1. Go with another LB
2. He is new to the team this year
3. He has a Spanish name
4. Canerock loves him

Time to save UM baseball program!


CONGRATS TO COACH L. He needs to work his magic on recruiting for next year to maintain this level of success. He deserves a raise or a contract extension...
He has some very good assistants like Coach Konkol who will be a HC some day.

BEERicane

Green would school Larkin 1 on 1. This is why he is ACC PoTY

Jack

No ej44 = nooooo good, :(

roachcane77

Yeah... I've been paying attention SOUP... I hate to steal CaneRock's thunder on this one...

Hopefully, I'll spot my OWN LOF in Naples.

Of course, I'll be looking at EVERYONE, (including Freshman, Spanish surnamed LBs.)
