orange 'n green in the vein

So unsurprised to see a judgement call ACC officiating whistle of a charge on Larkin's layup not only providing the final margin of the game at Cameron but also the seeding. Why even play the conference tournaments if they don't count for the seeding?

Must have been a bad year to win the ACC . . . and not wear blue on your uniform. Don't ever question just how deep the bias runs against this athletic department.



This is for all the old cane fans who enjoyed the back to back blocked shots down low. Get that outa here! LOL



we got the short end of the but thats ok.

yeah i know, thats what she said lol

Honestly I have no dog in the seeding fight and as long as you get a top four, but maybe they thought UM's defense was overrated WWiN?

No, that was a joke. When UM tears Illinois a new one on Sunday that will be the final proof necessary that the mid major was completely over-seeded at #1.

I saw some Larkins post game presser and he said he read a lot on the Internet that fans thought the team peaked too soon. Maybe he reads Canespace???

My thoughts exactly when I read it.

Shane, if you're reading this, I never said that about you, just that I was worried there was only one way to go when you hit that #2 ranking possibly.

The play these last three days has made me think there's still another level you can reach.

No turn off the internet and start watching the Pacific film in 26 minutes.

Evidently our Canes play Pacific at 1:10 Central on TNT or 2:10 Eastern on TNT. Let's go Canes.

So if Miami and Illinois play on Sunday it will very interesting in my household. My wife is an Illinois alum and most of our friends are Illinois alumni as well as some family and neighbors. If we do play them I sure hope we beat them so I can have bragging rights on all of them for years to come. My daughters have Miami gear but my wife was saying she wanted to get some Illini gear for them. I am already out outnumbered 4 to 1 in the male to female ratio in the house and don't want to be outnumbered in the Miami to Illinois ratio as well...

Again, let's take care of Pacific and see what happens in Illinois vs Colorado game.



I don't think our d is overrated, but we've been playing too laxed on d these last 8-10 games. The recipe for bad d is; giving up lay ups, uncontested 3's, and giving the opponents second chance opportunities, we've been doing all three. Not trying to be negative just saying what we need to get back to if we wanna make a title run

Love it!


A.C.C. Champs.


Great seed, good region.

"I have a great relationship with the Miami coaches, recruiting is open to everybody around the country and the relationship is the same everywhere."

"No. It is still good and I don’t have a problem with Miami, Not one bit. The relationship with Miami is the same if not better then the relationships with other schools in the country."- Ice Harris


Just curious...how many schools have won a NC in football, baseball, and hoops? Please tell me they gators have not??

Go Canes!


UMAA game watch parties, all fans are welcome:




• Miami is making its 18th postseason appearance in program history and fifth in the last six seasons.
• Miami NCAA Championship seed history: 11 (1998, South), 2 (1999, East), 6 (2000, South), 5 (2002, West), 7 (2008, South) and 2 (2013, East)
• Miami is 4-6 in six previous NCAA Championships (last appearance in 2008).
• Miami has never advanced past the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Championship.
• 2013 in Miami's sixth NCAA tournament berth since 1997 (first appearance was in 1960).
• Coach Jim Larranaga is making his seventh NCAA tournament appearance - and 14th overall postseason trip - as head coach. He led George Mason to the 2006 Final Four.


Miami made history, and not in a good way: The Hurricanes became the first regular-season and tournament ACC champion not to get a No. 1 seed. Not only that, they were slapped into a region featuring Indiana, probably the best and most consistent team in the country over the course of the season.

The team that snuck past them? Gonzaga, which has beaten only one NCAA tournament team – St. Mary’s, in the First Four – since December. Miami beat two in the past two days.

Ya, this speech is just fantastic. Great stuff


I've taken some time to look over this Region, and it's a very winnable one.

I think Syracuse and Indiana will meet in the Sweet 16, so we'd play one of them if we make it to the 8 round.

Final Four is VERY possible.


86 - I have no issue where Miami is seeded and the region. We get past Indiana and it's a done deal. You want to talk about a killer region, look at the mid-west. Louiville, Duke, Michigan State, Memphis....BRUTAL.
