McClinton picked All-ACC 1st team

Jack McClinton made plenty of big shots this season to help UM, picked to finish last in the ACC, put themselves in position for the NCAA Tournament. He's been rewarded for it now.

The ACC's leading three-pointer shooter and fifth-leading scorer was selected to the All-ACC First Team Monday alongside Boston College's Tyrese Rice, North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough, Virginia's Sean Singletary and Duke's DeMarcus Nelson.

Jack_mcclintonIt's a big honor for Mr. Big Mac Attack as he becomes the first UM player to earn First Team honors in the ACC and only the third player to be selected all-conference first team. He joins Tim James who did it twice (97-98, 98-99) and Johnny Hemsley (1998-99).

The Hurricanes will play as the fifth seed and open the ACC Tournament at 2:30 p.m. Thursday against North Carolina State (15-15). We all remember what happened last time UM played the Wolfpack. Anthony King's errant pass under the basket led to a heartbreaking overtime loss.

According to ESPN.com bracketologists Miami will still likely get into the NCAA Tournament whether it wins Thursday or not. But I'm sure the Canes would prefer to "guarantee" themselves a spot with a win Thursday. Right now, Joe Lunardi projects UM as a 10th seed in the South bracket with a first round match-up with Davidson (24-7) in Omaha, Nebraska.

good stuff
canes #1

#10 seed? WTF? We're better than a 10 seed.

duh! second

Tough loss Sat in O.T.
Hopefully the 'Canes can bounce back with a strong ACC run and then the Big Dance!!!

Also, Congrats to the U Baseball team. Looking GooD!!!

Rivals says that Ebanks will open it up...

"Devin Ebanks should have his list of potential schools cut down to between two and four by next week, but a final announcement on his future destination might not happen until...[details]"

I hope they come out fired up on Thursday. We need to make noise in the tournament, if for nothing else to build up the Miami image for potential recruits.

And Manny, "Big Mac Attack"? Are you serious? It's McClutch, and that's that.

Manny,

Why don't you ever talk UM Baseball? They are the best team in the school right now, and arguably the most consistent, as they have 4 national championships and are one of the favorites this season to win their 5th!! I love football/basketball too, but give the baseball team some love... They have 3 projected 1st rounders this year, they have one of the best coach's in college, they have 5 preseason all-americans, and potentially the best freshman pitcher in college!!!

What more do you need?

Because its not football season, and there's no "new"s

By the way, congratulations Jack. That is a great honor. He is one of the five best players in arguably the best league in the country. The first Cane ever! That includes Rick Barry, Tim James, John Salmons, Helmsley, Rice, Diaz. Pretty impressive.

Manny has commented before that he doesn't cover baseball as such he doesn't blog about it. What we need to do is ask him if he can get the baseball writer to blog for you. Im sure if manny covered baseball as he does football and basketball he'd blog about it.

GO CANES!!!

"Reason", you have none.

Manny,

It's either McLOVIN' ("Superbad" reference) or JACK McNASTY. Nothing else will suffice.

(Certainly not "McSwoosh". That's freaking terrible.)

no McLOVIN AND JACK MCNASTY ARE BOTH BAD. JACK IS MORE THAN SUFFICIENT ENOUGH.

Shut up you asshole.

Hey Manny, I guess there are certain things in life that we all have to ignore like douchbags on the blog! Then again it's a CANES thing they wouldn't understand. Hell of a job way to spread the love. The future for the U is so gleaming. From the Biz school to the med school to all the money and success in 5 sports! What a life. One day soon you will write about our over whelming national success in the BIG 3 sports. Can't wait. C Ya Douchbags!!!!!

5&7 and Reason... U sound like twins, or from same area, but not from Miami.???

Ahhhh guys,... Remember your in the dead period and Manny has been the best of all reporters... if your craving football news, suggest to read past forum posts and also read comments, looking for Questions and Answers by Manny... as Randy's policy of no interviews during the week hasn't changed since last week.

Note,... We're all in the same boat and If your current Manny's past blogs, then it is what it is.

If your new,... try Shandel's Blogs at the Sun Sentinel Newspaper...

What about Captain Jack - the fiercest pirate of the hardwood.

Barging in on Manny's blog to cordially invite UM fans to check out www.cnj523.wordpress.com
It's a UM sports blog launched by sports journalism students (taught by Yours Truly). All the sports are covered.
OK, back to our regularly-scheduled programming...

For the Foootball, football folks. You can get on another site and bloviate as much as you want about nothing on football. You can go on and on about a spring scimmage and who throws the best spiral, how ripped bailey is, how harris will beat out Marve ( based on no facts) how Spence is a beast .......or you can enjoy that we are in the dance and in the hunt at the ACC championship with the real possibilty of winning at least two games and going up against the #1 team in the country

its spring break for football.haith has his team on the verge of the tournament. a remarkable story considering they were picked for last place.

lets go in football terms. its like randy going from 5-7 to the acc championship game and a nice bowl game..or from 5-7 to 9-3.
you would be happy with that right?

winning 20 games at um in basketball is tough. basketball has a small travel budget,small recruiting budget, small budget to bring in teams for guaranteed non conference games. until the university starts giving the three sports the same resources as the rest of the acc its going to be tough to compete. this year is just the appetizer.look at next years team.

mcclinton,dews,collins,graham,ausbery,thomas,rios,hurdle,gamble,newcomers dequan jones, reggie johnson and cyrus mccgowan. miami might have the biggest most physical team in the acc.

Manny don't mind them haters. Keep doing what you do. Thank you for all your hard work.

Manny, you do a fabulous job. Props to you. Keep the info you have coming.

How old is 5AND7SUX? 10? 15? Are you freekin' kiddin' me? I heard Jacory Harris' girlfriend had a salad at lunch today. There, is that enough football for you. It's basketball season.

Manny...thanks for the LIVE chat tonight.

U are the man!

Hey guys here is the website to put Sebastian on the cover of EA Sports NCAA 2009 for the WII. Right now the Washington State mascot is winning and UCF is in 3rd. We are not in the top 10. We need support, you can vote once a day.

Hey 5&7 and Reason,...

Tried to give both of you some space but something is fishy.

Don't know your agenda, but U sound like both are the same one and you have a axe to grind, allot deeper then just complaining about... Manny and now 86.

Why is it that both of you have been coming on at the same time frame for the last couple of times when you come here???????

Sounds like your either trying to destroy Inside The U and/or Manny's articles or disrupt the flow... Don't know why, but something smells like Florida back water

Or they smell like another site trying shed readers away...

Manny/Herald... Chuck these guys.

EXACTLY REASON. I BET IF THE WOMENS BASKETBALL TEAM ACCOMPLISHED THE SAME THING AS THE MEN (OR BETTER), I BET MANNY STILL WOULDN'T GIVE THEM A WORD ON HIS BLOG. MAAAAN, DON'T NOBODY CARE ABOUT NO BASKETBALL IN MIAMI. THEY HYPIN' UP POOR LITTLE EDDIE RIOS LIKE HE'S THE NEXT CHRIS CORCIANI OR SOMETHIN'. MAAAAAN, AIN'T NO TOP FLIGHT TALENT COME OUT OF MIAMI SINCE PROBABLY TIM JAMES, AND WHERE THE HELL IS HE NOW, HUH? WHAT THE HELL DID STEVE MILLER DO, HUH? WHAT THE HELL DID COREY LEWIS DO, HUH? MAAAAN C'MON, MIAMI AIN'T NO COLLEGE BASKETBALL TOWN, PUHLEEEEEEEEZE. LET'S SEE WHERE ALL THESE BANDWAGONERS ARE IF MIAMI STARTS OUT 0-13 NEXT SEASON, JUST WATCH, YOU WON'T CATCH THEM ON THIS COMMENTARY BOARD, NO SIRRRRRRREE. BUNCHA BANDWAGON RIDIN' MOFOS.

Posted by: 5AND7SUX | March 11, 2008 at 11:14 PM

Who the hell is Steve Miller and Corey Lewis, you dumbfuck? You don't care about basketball because you obviously know nothing about it.

WHAT ABOUT BASEBALL? WE GOT ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S BEST BASEBALL TEAMS AND WHERE ARE THE POSTS ON IT??? OH WAIT, POOR LITTLE MANITO DOESN'T WANNA PAY ATTENTION TO BASEBALL CUZ "HIM DON'T WIKE IT". GIVE ME A FRIGGIN BREAK. TALK ABOUT IT. MIAMI IS A BASEBALL AND FOOTBALL TOWN. BASKETBALL COMES IN THIRD. YEAH, THEY'RE DOING GREAT RIGHT NOW, AND THEY WILL PROBABLY GET A NCAA BID, BUT COME ON GUYS. YOU KNOW WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN. IF, AND IT'S A BIG IF, THEY GET THRU THE FIRST 2 ROUNDS, THEY WILL MORE THAN LIKELY LOSE IN THE SWEET 16. THAT'S NOT HATE. THAT'S THE VOICE OF REASON. DON'T GET ME WRONG, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM DO BETTER, BUT IN ALL ACTUALITY THEY WON'T.

Posted by: Reason | March 11, 2008 at 11:38 PM

lolololololol

Manny did Q & A last night on canespace.

Practice, you guys want to talk about practice man, practice

First off, I didn't write anything about Manny but now that you mention it, this is a free blog. So, you are wrong, this is not his job. He does not get paid to put information on here. With that said, this is by far the best Canes blog there is and Manny updates it a hell of alot more than other people do. If you are not satisfied with the information you get from Manny, then why don't you get off your ass and try to get the information yourself.

REASON & 5AND7SUX clearly enjoy sucking each other off. Talk about queer...

Get a life you stupid f@cks!

WHAT ABOUT FOOTBALL?? I NEED SOMETHING TOO READ....

HEY MANNY,
RANDY SHANNON LOOKED YOU DEAD SQUARE IN THE EYES, AND ASKED YOU--"WHERE SUSAN AT?". YOU KNOW, I DON'T GET IT, IF YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE A WRITER FOR THE MIAMI HERALD (AND I'M PRETTY SURE RANDY SHANNON KNOWS THAT) HOW DOES HE LOOK YOU(NOBODY ELSE NOW, YOU MANNY) AND SAY, "WHERE SUSAN AT?". I MEAN C'MON NOW, THAT'S A TOTAL LACK OF DISRESPECT MY MAN, A TOTAL LACK OF DISRESPECT. EITHER HE DOESN'T RESPECT YOU, OR HE THINKS THAT YOU NEED TO STEP UP YOUR INTERVIEW AND WRITING SKILLS, STRAIGHT UP MANNY. AND MY SUGGESTION IS MUCH MORE AKIN TO THE LATTER (ALTHOUGH I THINK YOU NEED BRUSHING UP IN BOTH AREAS. BY THE WAY, WHERE THE HELL IS SUSAN MANNY? I'M STARTING TO THINK SHE NEEDS TO GET ON HER JOB ALSO. BOTH YA'LL NEED TO TIGHTEN UP BIG DAWG.

BY THE WAY, I SEE THE E I ON THE U GESTAPO HAD SOME OF MY POSTS REMOVED.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, IN THE WORDS OF MY FAVORITE CUBAN'S FAVORITE CUBAN SCARFACE, "IT'S OKAAAAY, I'M RELOADED".
