God I wish SC had gotten the death penalty
Personally...pleased but cautious....the kid is a tremendous talent IMO, and he is just a kid. I did gain more respect for Randy though...like him as a coach or not ... the guy walks the walk.....after the fact I a sort of happy Randy handled the way he did.
It seems like I brought this up before, but it looks like there's something behind ND and Miami renewing the rivalry. I'd love to see it happen, personally. ND already has OU on the schedule coming up in a couple years. OU/SC/Michigan/UM...brutal lol.
I would love to see that rivalry renewed again as well Don. Hell, I would like to see the Gators sign on for more games with us as well.
I am all for playing the toughest schedule we can, breeds the competitive fire and if you go through a really tough schedule undefeated then...... You should be champs.
So let me get this straight... we're a 4 seed, Providence is a 5 seed. Due to "prior engagements" at the Bank Atlantic Center for tonight, Providence is rewarded with home court? That is sad.
No one is playing at American Airlines Arena tonight... the same can be said for almost any other arena in the city.
# 6 Miami 11, UMBC 1
Miami routs U of Maryland-Baltimore County 11-1
Miami defeats Providence 78-66 in the opening of the NIT.
Now its time to visit the Rowdy Reptiles!
Yep time to kick their butts like we did in baseball a couple of weeks ago.
lol we shall see tonight
Awesome, an instate rivalry game is on amidst the March Madness! 7pm in Gainesville.
This not being on TV is pissing me off!
Its on ESPNU but its not a game.....Florida is better, you guys win this easy. The Canes finish the season very poorly.
I looked and it was College wrestling.
Not on my DirecTV.....Gators 74, Miami 59 3:18 left
Really? Gators got you this time!!! I actually thought this was going to be a better game. I did not know the Canes were going to pay like that. Florida is going to be a dangerous team next year with incoming freshman and the Transfer from Georgetown.
# 7 Virginia 9, # 4 Miami 4 in Charlottesville
Miami drops the opener at Charlottesville to Virginia 9-4.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The fourth-ranked University of Miami baseball team lost the first game of a three-game series at No. 7 Virginia, 9-4, Friday night at Davenport Field. Virginia plated runs in six of eight innings, handing UM starter Chris Hernandez just his first career loss in 22 starts as a Hurricane.
Miami (16-4, 5-2 ACC) had an early 3-1 lead in the contest, but Virginia (19-0, 5-0 ACC) scored two in third, fifth and sixth to go up 7-3 after six.
Hernandez (2-1) allowed a career-high six earned runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings, striking out five and walking two in the process.
UVa starter Danny Hultzen (5-0) earned the win, allowing three earned runs on seven hits while walking two and striking out six in six innings of work. Relievers Kevin Arico and Matt Packer combined to toss the final three innings for the Cavaliers.

For the fifth-straight ACC game, UM's opponent got on the board first as the Cavs scored a single run in the top half of the first.
UM responded quickly however, scoring two in the top of the second to go up one. After Chris Herrmann walked to lead off the inning, Harold Martinez immediately brought him home with a double to left-center. Two batters later, Yasmani Grandal hit a bloop single to right, bringing Martinez home to put the `Canes up 2-1.
Ted Blackman led off the third with a double down the line in left and after a Scott Lawson sacrifice moved him to third, Ryan Jackson's grounder to first scored Blackman to give UM a two-run advantage.
That was the last lead UM enjoyed however, as UVa scored six over the next four innings.
The Cavs tied it up in the bottom of the third when Parker hit a two-run homer to left-center.
UVa loaded the bases in the fifth for Phil Gosselin, who brought home the first run of the frame with a sacrifice fly to center. The fifth and deciding run then came across on a Dan Grovatt single to right.
The Cavaliers pushed the lead to 7-3 in the sixth win two more runs before both teams plated a run in the seventh to make it 8-4 after seven. UVa closed the scoring with another run in the eighth to make it 9-4.
Travis Miller and Rene Guerra combined to toss the final 2 2/3 innings for the Hurricanes.
Game two of the three-game set against the Cavaliers is slated for 1 p.m. on Saturday. Right-hander David Gutierrez (2-0, 3.91 ERA) is slated to go for UM while UVa will counter with right-hander Andrew Carraway (3-0, 1.27 ERA).
- Virginia's run in the first inning marked the fifth-straight ACC game UM's opponent scored first.
- Ted Blackman made his second career start and his first as the team's designated hitter.
- Chris Hernandez suffered his first career loss as a Hurricane (23 appearances). Hernandez's six earned runs were also the most given up in his career.

Box Score :
I totally agree with their observations when it comes to Mike James..... I really liked this kid coming out of High School and really think he will be a true workhouse, power back we have been missing for too long now.....
In the end... between James, Lamar Miller and next years class of RBs from South Florida Bryce Brown will be an afterthought....
Bryce who? Is that a Duke basketball player?
For anyone interested the spring game is being streamed here....
