HURRICANES SET FOR ACC CHAMPIONSHIPS IN GREENSBORO

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Miami Hurricanes swimming & diving team will mark its return to the pool Wednesday, as the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Swimming & Diving Championships open from the Greensboro Aquatic Center.

Miami, competing for the first time since a tri-meet in Blacksburg, Va., back on Jan. 19, has utilized the last month of practice as preparation for the final and most important month of the season.

“We’ve been fine-tuning in practice, and everyone really looks amazing,” head swimming coach Christie Shefchunas said. “We are so excited to see what happens this week. We’re in great spirits, we’re swimming fast. It’s going to be a really exciting week.”

Last year at the ACC championships most impressive was the performance of current senior Sofia Johansson, who captured a second straight gold medal in the 100-yard Breaststroke. She became the first woman to swim the event in under a minute in ACC history, touching the wall in a time of 59.81 seconds.

“It’s very hard to win three in a row. She’s going in seeded No. 2, and it would be huge if she could pull this off,” she said. “But we want to make sure she gets qualified for the NCAA’s. We want another conference championship, but for her to be an All-American would be the ultimate goal.”

The Pimp earns his biggest keep late in the evening is why CR.

Why does Al Golden cheer for UVA in basketball is more the question? Because Jim couldn't land Mrs. Collins kid for him despite blowing out #1 by four scores in football?

As for this;

That's enough right there already. No need to entertain this anymore because as we all know, unicorn horn poisoning = real b!tch.

thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the support CoCane, I agree it was a horrible situation, but I feel everybody should have a day in court. It was really bad to get slammed without some representation. I have not read the family report, I am sure they are refuting the original report.....we may never know what really happened....and I do agree with you 110% it was very bad.

Miami closed with 5 kids (4 of them 4*) and none were named Thomas, Kirkland, Bostwick, Bryant, or Collins. #Twilightzone

UMike

Griffin is 6'6..nice

UMike

Lt. Philip Nolan ‏@TheStateOfTheU
If Griffin does in fact qualify, it may end up the steal of 2013

j.w.

Good job to the staff of finding quality kids after NSD, not easy to do, and I'm impressed. Now about that DT position . . . :)

JamaiCane

No coincidence that both Corn Elder and now Griffin are both highly rated hoopers. I expect alot more quality dual sport athletes in the 6'6 - 6'7 range to start signing up.

UM adds highly-touted Texas WR/TE Derrick Griffin to 2013 signing class

Griffin could also end up playing basketball at Miami. Listed as the 26th-best small forward in the country by ESPN, Griffin is reportedly averaging 25 points a game for his high school team.

"This year Miami's basketball team is looking really good," Griffin told InsideTheU.com. "They are No. 2 in the country and they have a real chance to win a National Championship. I want to try and play college basketball too, so that is a big reason why I like them too."

I hope so, I'm thinking Julius Peppers types.

I remember when Ronald Curry signed with North Carolina and I thought they were going to become a dual sports powerhouse. I think we can have a shot at that with some consistent recruiting in basketball especially.

So we signed TE #9 to the team?

Must be a new offense formation, a QB and all TE's. Confuses the opposing D into trying to figure out which of them will be in the pattern.....

With the 116th ranked D in Div 1 I thought for sure we needed help on the side of the ball.

Maybe someday I'll figure this out

I know it's early but there is reason for optimism in 2013 for the diamond dogs.

First, for a change Miami was able to get some of their drafted baseball draftees to stay in school. There is some big-time talent in this group, and freshmen can have big impacts in college baseball.

Second, barring injury (a very big IF) I think the current pitching staff has the best collection of arms we've had in some time. UM hasn't had this much velocity off the mound in years, and they are deep at both starter and reliever.

Due to the depth at starter, Miami should have a chance to have a high winning % on mid-week games where they tend to face the top pitchers of lesser teams, keeping their ranking and RPI high. It will also pay off in the post-season.

And we may actually start seeing the Miami of old in the field, an area that has killed us in the recent past.

We'll know more soon when we face the gators, but I think this group can make a run at Omaha. What better way to honor the WIZ?!

Terrance Sullivan

Great point OGV.

Wow, more offense. I guess we truly are intent on out scoring folks in the future. Where's more help for the "D"!

Nothing of this had to do with Mario. He was only a hanger-on for the while he was here. Payback is coming SOON!

U make me laugh like a little school girl!

Tee hee, tee hee...

Thx for the great info, Meph! Omaha would be a great way to honor the Wiz!

Pre83

86 - I was wondering when U were going to give some insight on Mario.

So he really sold out?! I hope Ray Lew & the other alums make sure to let Mario know where he stands!! If that is true, what an SOB!!

Nothing like motivating AG & Co. all the more!!

Sarasota 'cane

All you Golden/Shalala haters can stick it! Golden has turned around the offense and special teams, plus he's the best one-armed recruiter in the country! Defense is on deck! My bet is we get the 4 star tackle out of Louisiana before April!
And anyone who thinks Donna isn't a cane please go kill yourself and save me the trouble! She has positioned this athletic department to be relevant and competitive in a changing NCAA environment. She could win the World Series of Poker if she ever took up cards! Chuck Norris wears Donna Shalala panties!
It's a cane thang...

Go 'canes!

Griffin is almost 6'7 and over 220 lbs and runs a 4.5 basically a H.S version of Jimmy Graham.

He has grade issues but I say Grey shirt him and let him add weight, he will probably be a TE as he keeps growing, he will be 240 in 24 months.

CoCane

Sarasota Cane,

I'll wait until this NCAA mess & next season football results are in before I start co-signing with praise of Shalala & Golden...
