Fresh off of their "Vini, Vidi, Vici" tour of Tobacco Road this past weekend, your Miami Hurricanes returned to the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables Sunday night.
As the escorted team bus pulled in around 10 PM, Miami fans lined the streets to welcome their newly crowned conquering heroes and their leader, UM head coach Jim Larranaga, home.
And we are almost certain that home may never have felt any sweeter to the UM men's basketball team than it did at that glorious moment in time.
Earlier last night, Larranaga and his band of merry men watched the (rigged) NCAA selection show to see where they would be seeded and where they would begin play in the (sham) NCAA tournament set to start on Thursday.
It turns out that Coach L and his (disrespected) Miami Hurricanes basketball team are headed to Austin, TX as the #2 seed where they will play The University of the Pacific on Friday, March 22 at 2:10 PM on TNT.
How a Miami team that won both the regular season conference title and the ACC tournament crown on the road in the heart of North Carolina against the nearly home town Tar Heels was not given a #1 seed is simply beyond comprehension.
Only in the corrupt, deceptive world of the NCAA is that even possible. But, as they say: "It is what it is. Now deal with it!" Now, Miami will need to find a way to turn that disrespect into motivation going forward.
As for today, when U wake up and stand squarely in front of the mirror, you can say something to yourself that you could have never said before in the entire history of the program:
And nothing, and nobody, can wipe that huge smile off of the reflection staring back at you.
