"I asked Campbell if he preferred playing end or tackle, and this was his response.

“Honestly, if I go to Miami I’ll play freakin’ on the bench. I’ll go out there and hand out water bottles and towels if they want me to. It’s just having the opportunity to play football that I want.”"

Now THAT is the kind of kid you root for. I don't care if he comes to Miami or not, I hope all his dreams come true.

WE READY!!!

SOUP

The Miami Hurricanes clinched a berth in the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Thursday night, earning one of eight coveted trips to Durham Bulls Athletic Park with a 8-3 win over Georgia Tech in game one of the final regular season series for both teams.

Miami (34-20, 13-15 ACC), entering the weekend set in need of just one win to guarantee a spot in the eight-team field, had not missed the ACC Championship since joining the conference in 2004. Before a crowd of 2,487 at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field, the Hurricanes ensured their ninth consecutive appearance with a commanding win over the visiting Yellow Jackets.

Inserted onto the mound due to a late injury suffered by Saturday starter Andrew Suarez, senior righthander Eric Whaley performed admirably in his first start since March 19. The Pompano Beach, Fla., native, boosted by an early surge from the team's offense, scattered just two hits in five shutout innings. The outing, which included one strikeout and one walk, matched his longest stint of the season.

Thursday's original projected starter, sophomore southpaw Chris Diaz, will take the mound Friday night against Jackets' righthander Dusty Isaacs.

The Hurricane offense struck early off Georgia Tech ace Buck Farmer (8-4), tagging the senior for five runs on five hits in the game's first three innings.

With junior Alex Hernandez (single) and senior Chantz Mack (walk) on base, freshman slugger David Thompson cracked a double into leftfield to open the game's scoring. The Miami, Fla., native, who led the team with five hits last weekend against Wake Forest, roped an 0-1 offering from Farmer corralled well by Kyle Wren in left.

With the hit, Thompson reached base for the 20th consecutive game, the longest stretch of any Hurricane this season. Hernandez extended his personal hitting streak to seven games with the single.

Junior first baseman Brad Fieger would add a sacrifice fly, as Miami took a 2-0 lead into the second.

This Date in Hurricanes History...May 17th, 1985...Brought to you by the UM Sport Hall of Fame!

UMSHoF member Mike Fiore set a school record with 9 consecutive hits...a streak dating back to May 12th! Fiore started the streak in the 2nd game of a doubleheader on May 12 against UCF, and ended it against South Florida on May 17.

In the UCF game, Mike set a school record with 6 hits in a game, going 6 for 6 with 4 runs scored and sevens runs batted in in the Canes 28-5 romp over the Knights. He then started the May 17th game against the Bulls with 3 hits...running the streak

The 1985 National Champions won the game 9-0.

I used to think Larkin reminded me of Tony Parker. But watching Him some more, He actually reminds me of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, formerly known as Chris Jackson at LSU.
