With UM abaout to start ACC champoinmship play tonight, here's a little preview of how we did against round-robin opponents:

Wed, May 20 Virginia Durham, N.C. 3:00 p.m.
UM lost series @Virginia, 2-1 (Fri, Apr 17 - Sun, Apr 19, Results 4-5 / 2-5 / 8-6)

Fri, May 22 NC State Durham, N.C. 7:00 p.m.
UM swept series @home, 3-0 (Fri, Mar 13 - Sun, Mar 15, Results 3-2 10inn. / 9-2 / 6-0)

Sat, May 23 Notre Dame Durham, N.C. 3:00 p.m.
Not on our schedule

While we are the overwhelming favourite to win against #7 seed Virginia tonight, the Cavaliers are one of the few opponents that took a series from us in ACC play (the others being Louisville and FSU, who both play in the other pool).

#6 NC State gave us all kinds of problems in Game 1, where we were outhit 8-3 through 9 innings before a 3-hit 10th inning gave us the 3-2 win. In the other two games, the Canes dominated from start to finish.

#3 ND wasn't on our schedule, so it's going to be interesting how this plays out. ND swept FSU Apr 11 (double header) & Apr 12, but has gone a mediocre 11-9 since.

@mattyports: A linebacker -- yes, a linebacker -- is the Hurricanes' fastest player right now: http://t.co/kK7Fv5nOeq http://t.co/Hg4L5VOhRJ

That depth at linebacker really scares me! I think that's our problem position next season.

thirstybuzzardcane

Hope whoever selects the top 8, that the RPI will play a major role in their decisions.

LMAO!!!

Who's rooting for Golden State?

Ohio_Cane

I will always root for Heat first, Lebron second. Heat are out, so I'm rooting for Lebron to win it all.

Ohio_Cane

I don't believe the Cavs can pull it off without Love, though. They may get past the Hawks, but not Houston/GS

Oh 't ain't what you do it's the place that you do it
'T ain't what you do it's the time that you do it
'T ain't what you do it's the way that you do it
That's what gets results

You can try hard
Don't mean a thing
Take it easy, greasy
Then your bats will swing

Me.

The Dude

No offense to all the ladies out there that read this blog, but you gals have some strange logic sometimes.

My wife: My friend wants me to stop by this party after work to say hi.
Me: It will be late (11:00 pm our time). Are we supposed to stay up for you? I don't think you should go. (She's a month pregnant by the way.)
Wife: Its not like I want to go.
Me: Then tell her I didn't want you to go. Blame me if you want to.
Wife: I can't believe you have a problem with me going.

Hold up, you didn't want to go, I didn't want you to go, I gave you a perfectly reasonable excuse to get out of it (which I was cool looking a little like an ass) yet I'm the bad guy here? See ladies, see how you get our heads spinning? Lol.

Next up, Fri. nt. at 7pm vs. NC State. First, NDU plays NC State tomorrow, and then NDU plays UVa Fri. a.m. These next few games should clarify the stakes that much further, although clearly simply winning 3 in a row covers all purposes to get to the ACC championship game.

FWIW, in pool A play, Louisville was down 4-0 to UNC before mounting a nice comeback and taking a 7-4 win. Also, FSU took down Clemson after getting swept by Clemson last weekend.

Amazing, truly, 8th inning today by the U after a lackluster offensive performance prior. Thompson with the clutch 2 run single, and then Kennedy nailing the 3 run shot right after. Simply wow. Negatives for the game: the U got a few hits in the 8th, but only had 7 for the game after an amazing dozen games leading up to today. It took a few UVa errors to help fully though, with the Cavs committing 3, including one in the 8th that helped set things up. Pos: The U never gave up, took advantage of what they had to, got the win vs. a team they struggled against this season, and got the away and ACC tnmt jitters out of the way in game 1 with a win.

If we are Top 5 in any category nationally, but fail to crack the Top 5 in the Coastal Division, something's not right.
We've gone back and forth on this blog what that "something" is and how to fix it.
No need to go down that road again ...

Let's enjoy the success of our baseball team for now.

It's a few Chinese restaurants in Miami that suck, but for the most part, Chinese food in Miami is pretty good. Especially the ones the ones that have that Caribbean fusion in it. Evans & Newberg sound silly.

That was not my intention on being the only negative post, either lol. I happened to see that in between customers, then I had to leave and drive 45 mins.

Yup. Let's just be grateful that we STILL have an opportunity to win a NC in a sport for the 2014-15 season...especially a TEAM sport.

99.98% of Chinese restaurants are just comfort food, much the same everywhere. Great for when The old lady doesn't want to cook, and you want to do pick up, or delivery, and the family likes the orange chicken or the moo goo gai pan or the sweet-and-sour whatever. Most are just average, but a bad one is really really bad and usually gross.

imo, best in Miami is Tropical Chinese. Excellent dim sum, not cheap like most average Chinese joints, but not super expensive either. Where else can you get good dim sum in South Florida

That sounds like hater talk! Lol

Go Canes

New Chinatown was the bomb before progress came and swallowed them up. They closed because they got an offer they couldn't refuse on their prime location.

Tropical is the best place left for sure.

@mattyports: In the first half of Wellington’s spring game, UM commit Ahmmon Richards had a TD catch and 3 INT (2 returned for TD, of 98 and 75 yards)

Ahmmon Richards is a beast. Must hold onto him. That is all.

Dim sum? No, fried rice & chicken wangs.

Top 5 ACC Quarterbacks for 2015

High School (2014): West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade
247Sports Composite: Four-Star (0.9356), No. 7 Pro-Style QB

Kaaya is one of two players on this list who outperformed expectations last season as a true freshman. He won the starting job in fall camp and never relinquished it, showing continuous improvement throughout the year. In 13 games, he completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 3,198 yards with 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Of the 11 ACC quarterbacks with at least 9 starts and 15 pass attempts per game, Kaaya led the conference in both yards per attempt (8.5) and pass efficiency (145.9). Given his age, Kaaya’s development is nowhere near complete and he’ll look to take another step forward in 2015. Unfortunately, he’ll have to do so without the services of many of his favorite targets from last season, including receiver Phillip Dorsett, tight end Clive Walford and even running back Duke Johnson, the school’s all-time leading rusher. With Johnson gone, Kaaya is now the centerpiece of the Miami offense, so the team’s success – and possibly head coach Al Golden’s job – will be largely dependent on Kaaya’s level of play.

I like wings and fried rice, but you can get those anywhere. Comfort food. I'll bet there's four or five places near you..

But have some roast pork dim sum (dumplings) to go with those ribs. My mouth is watering
