NIT blog: UM 78, Providence 66 (F)

PROVIDENCE -- We're definitely in the NIT. An ugly first half of basketball here from the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Ugly, but still kind of pretty for UM considering how this team looked last week against Virginia Tech.

Miami has a 33-28 lead at the break despite 12 first half turnovers. While the Canes have been sloppy handling the basketball, they've done a great job rebounding. 11 offensive rebounds have led to 12 second chance points. UM also has done a good job scoring in the paint. Jack McClinton still doesn't look like the old Jack McClinton, but he's at least got a bit of his three-point stroke back. He's got 9 points on 3 of 8 shooting to go with four boards.

The Canes should be up more, but Providence exposed their weakness -- the full court press -- right before the half. UM turned the ball over on three consecutive possessions to and the Friars went on a 6-0 run to cut into the Canes' 33-22 lead. If Miami can protect the basketball better and continue to rebound well, they've got a great shot of moving on.

By the way, I spoke with UM athletic director Kirby Hocutt -- who nearly didn't make it to tonight's game -- right before tipoff. I'll have my interview with him tomorrow. If UM wins, they'll play at Florida (assuming the Gators win) on Friday night.

OH look, NO ONE cares about the canes hoops

Awesome job canes. Punking the Friars in front of a half empty Dunkin Donuts Center. U were supposed to be a sweet 16 team. Now that's MO you'll need.

U have a coaching carousel

U don't develop anything

U watched a WRECKING BALL demolish your home

U have no depth

U(r) fan base doesn't extend beyond this blog

U can't even with the MEDIOCRE ACC

U are completely irrelevant

U think U are marching back...NOT

U have a FRAIL QB who is now juicing ( Kehoe is proud)

U have NOWHER NEAR 8 wins on your schedule

U will get completely dismantled by OU

U will watch as (see what LSU did to GT) GT wins your conference

U think something is brewing at your badly eroded program

U don't have a clue

SECOND TIER FOOTBALL PROGRAM...welcome to big boy football, that independent/big east crap is OVA

WE ARE GOING TO GET KILLED BY UF WHEN WE PLAY THEM NEXT.

BETTER PLAYERS ,BETTER COACHING, BETTER FANS....

CLANG!!!

Manny...this is what U get when U have an OPEN blog and idiots posting that U can't block. Not so good!

U should consider your options.

I would love to understand the psychology of a person like you. What could have happened to you to make you so antisocial that you would antagonize a group of people you have never and will never meet?

He has been blocked of his `turd sites..so I guess this all he has until the block drops on him here..He says the same b.s. on other cane blog sites..just paste and copy..pathetic loser..86CANE that is a great site to go to...I get alot of knowledge of inside CANE stuff...and no moron with a ton of names to deal with

The sad thing is that it is the same post over three different blogs with different user names. I find it amusing that Gate fans are so concerned with UM.

Just ignore her.
It's just a case of massive inferiority complex from living an insignificant and lonely life.
If she is a man, then we can call it "Small D!@# Syndrome."

Congrats Canes. Rest up, big game on Friday!

86Cane and Manny: I agree with 86cane on this guys nonsense, but U cannot run from this people, thats what they want. Let them hate. There are always haters, just use it as motivation. It obviously stems from jealousy. I mean 5 national championships, the NFL filled with cane greats, keeping the war canoe for 25 yrs. Id hate Us to. Its a Cane thang and they wouldny understand

Nice win, nice coaching. It would be truly great fun to beat UF tomorrow night. I believe it will happen.

Go Canes.

So when does Duh U Bus leave for Gainesville ?

Congratulations Canes impressive win in Big East back yard. See what happens when U play inside out. We must establish Collins early and often. Still had to many TO's and not guarding the 3pt line but was impressive rebounding the ball. My gameball goes to J-Mac,Collins,Graham and Asbury. Next up a trip to HOGTOWN. To play a poor man's Duke. If we take the same game plan from tonight into Gainesville it's a wrap.

Damn, I hope we can beat UF. Remember the baseball games?

Damn, I hope someone finds "We's building depths" and puts a hurtin' on him.

Attention Herald.com moderators: With an obviously offensive handle like "We's building depths, can someone please stop this particular individual from posting on this site.

It's not quite the Big Dance but a win over UF in Gainesville would put a positive spin on the season. Nothing like beating an arch-rival on their home court.

Gator Haters Unite! GO CANES!!!

Ignore the guy ... he is funny and sad at the same time. No matter what the Gators do, they don't have the same tradition or mystic as the U.

We have to expect envious people to kick us when we are down... let it go.

what time it is?

It's Cane time

dang, we's building depth's life is either to hate on the canes or have nothing to live for at all, hahaha i just laugh when this dude is here, in the beginning he was annoying, now he's just plain ol' funny lol

Posted by: you crack me up like crazy lol | March 18, 2009 at 08:12 PM

hey gaturd, don't let the bastards get you down ...

KEEP ON TRUCKING

Ok I'll say it again,,,

WHAT TIME IT IS????????

CCCCCCCCCCCCCCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to UM Basketball team for a good start to post season play... now let's go skin those Gators !

Damn it didnt leave my EEEE in there

It's ok Kehoe/Bitter/We's.../etc. I'm starting to understand, but I do have a couple of questions. Was it your Priest, or maybe your step-dad? Was it your Little League coach, or maybe your uncle? A teacher? A neighbor?

If "that" ever happened to me, I would probably react the same way you do! I feel so bad for you, I'm welling up!

PSYCH!! I STILL HATE YOU, IN FACT, WE ALL DO!

YOU ARE HANDS DOWN THE BIGGEST LOSER ON THE WEB! IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE!

LONG, SLOW, PAINFUL, DESCENT. AND IT'S COSTING FLORIDA TAXPAYERS ALMOST $100,000,000.00 A YEAR!

HOW MANY PROFESSORS/TEACHERS HAVE BEEN LET GO OR HAD THEIR HOURS CUT BACK, SO MEYER COULD BECOME THE HIGHEST PAID STATE EMPLOYEE IN FLORIDA? C'MON GAYTORS, GET UP, AND GO...away!!

Go 'canes!

whens the florida game?

It's called the First Amendment ... Maybe U can getz ur boy Obama to do something about it.

Friday at 7 pm on ESPNU

Great game tonight by the CANES.
Nice to get a chance to play the GAYTURDS again.
We could win this thing.

On Friday night, it's back to playing against a team that can take advantage of Florida's weaknesses. Miami is pretty good.

"Florida is pretty good," said Warren.

That's what the NIT is — a bunch of pretty good teams.

For Florida to win against the Hurricanes, they'll need a lot more than 4,350 in the stands

Kehoe - It's sad to say (since it shows you have NO LIFE WHATSOEVER BEYOND THIS BLOG) but you've become sort of a legendary enemy to Canes fans that surf the web. I can't wait till the Canes win that next NC (which WILL happen within the next 5 years). Most of us are going to be happy Canes are back, but a few of us (including you) are going to be thrilled when we jizz the [|_|] in your face (I bet you your getting wet right now just thinking about it since you're OBVIOUSLY obsessed with us).

GO TO HELL LOSER, and GO CANES!!!

We's- "mediocre acc"? This mediocre acc played the sec head to head 12 times last year . Final record: 6-6.

Thismediocre acc has a better out of conference record than the sec

this mediocre acc plays more teams out of conf than the OVERRATED pathetic, truck driving, tobacco chewing SEC

UM has 5 ncs UF has 3
UM has 9 ncs in the 3 major sports and UFhas5

UM has prettier cheereleaders
Um has a better mascot

Losers like "We's" give honest UF fans a bad rep

Has anyone seen these: http://men.style.com/details/features/slideshow/v/031609AROD?loop=0&slideshowId=slideshow54360&iphoto=0&nphoto=9&play=true&cnt=1 ?

Is this A-Rod's coming out party (as in, coming out of the closet)? These pictures are nuts!

Maybe Kehoe and GayRod should hook up on home plate in the new A-Rod field at UM. Just a thought.

GO CANES!

U have a depth chart that is a JOKE

U watched in horror as the WRECKING BALL further eroded your once proud program

U hire unqualified head coaches from WITHIN

U are BROKE

U have the worst facilities imaginable

U are stadium NOMADS ( ohhh the ambience in Lockhart and EMPTY Dolphin Stadium)

U have a juicing quarterback that has a weiner arm

U , once again, wont even SNIFF the ACC title

U have PATHETIC attendance

U LAID DOWN against GT....they TOYED with U and laughed later

U LAID DOWN in your storied OB finale

U have NEVER produced a NC in your mediocre conference

U have a school president that DOESN"T CARE about football

U were good when steroid use was RAMPANT. Donna cleaned that out and you are VERY average ( of course Ray Lewis went from skinny kid to bruiser with protein shakes...wink wink)

U watched DONNA have her whipping boy run Kehoe and his juice right out of town. ( keep blaming Coker)

Donna knew what time it was, she put an ABRUPT END to the RAMPANT disregard for fair play. The UM juice factory filed chapter 11

Has there ever been a more clear sign of EROSION than the wrecking ball that swept through little Havana? IF your program had ANY mo, that wouldn't have happened

Your new legacy is the polyvinyl (removable) ring of honor

U R IRRELEVANT

Hey, "We's building depths" or "Bitter Pill" (it's the same loser)

Wow. Juicing? Have you seen Tebow's misshapen oversized melon head? If you've ever seen the inside of a gym, go ask the big guys lifting what that means. If you don't know what causes an abnormal ginormous head like that, ask one fo those guys, they'll tell you. Well probably after they kick your fat sorry ass.

The aske them what you can get easily in the Far East during missionary work.

I mean seriously you've got to be kidding me. Your accusing JH of something when the visual evidence is so clear on your QB. A kid whose coaches worried because he kept packing on the pounds as a 17yr old freshman in Gainesville...and you have the nerve to accuse?

Really glad you brought it up because that's the "Elephant in the room" in Gainesville that nobody talks about but who all know is true - that their saint is not so saintly. Now go back to your TeBLOW-HGH MAN-LOVE videos.

of course he juices, its all over CFB, but UM PERFECTED it. Can you say RAMPANT?

Teblow? Gayturd? Floriduh? It's all U clowns can come up with. Name calling.

Have you seen the zit minefield on Jacory's face? HOly crap that guy needs to cut the dose back

When Donna cleaned house, Kehoe took his juice with him. It doesn't seem to coming back

UM had 4,935 first round picks because of "swagger" and "mystique" had nothing to do with PED's...no way

anyone know much about how the canes match up with UF in the NIT?

auhgpojwejoihaayuuu - that is the sound of some idiot choking on their ping pong ball sized bitterness.

Fat sorry assss? That hurts man. It also hurts deeply when you say Gayturd, Teblow, Floriduh, so forth. It also hurts my feelings deeply when you call me gay, when you make mom jokes, when you talk about pajamas that I wear. Aside from the pain I have to give you credit for how original those all are. Surely these clever jokes blindside everyones sense of humor sending them into raucous laughter. U are very clever man

I"m at 8% body fat, trying like hell to get to 5%. It's extremely difficult. I'll get there though and the results will show in my incredibly quick marathon times.

McGwire, Sosa, Bonds, Canseco ==> Guilty of Juicing Up ==> HUGE heads. TeHoe also belongs in this category.

I can't wait till he gets caught juicing in the NFL OR is too scared to continue and decides to quit, subsequently destroying any shot (whatever minimal shot he ever had) of an NFL career. Then we'll all add asterisks to Florida's two NC's under TeBlow and his Heisman trophy.

GO TO HELL KEHOE!!!!!

GO CANES!!!

poor gaytor fan with no life, your pathetic dude

That link I just posted features one of UF's "greatest" alum's!

She's all yours UF!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N2uQ7Fg_Uk&eurl=http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home

Will cane fan ever stop using the word "scared" and "fear" ? Doubtful.

Bryce was "scared"

Tebow is "scared" of the NFL

Teams "fear" the U

ANY player you recruit who commits elsewhere is "scared" of the competition at UM ( laughable)

GT was clearly "scared"

NO ONE is scared of an undersized slow irrelevant U...NO ONE . But U keep believing that.

File "scared" and "fear" with "swagger" and "mystique" . Or keep using them. It's just good comedy

"I can't wait till he gets caught juicing in the NFL OR is too scared to continue and decides to quit, subsequently destroying any shot (whatever minimal shot he ever had) of an NFL career. Then we'll all add asterisks to Florida's two NC's under TeBlow and his Heisman trophy."

Great post. It's obvious he is scared and it shows in his play. The asterisk will be on three not two NC's. UF will go undefeated in 09 as you simmer in the juice of a .500 team . U got left behind when the CFB landscape changed. Donna doesnt care either. IT"S OVA

wow bitter U are pretty pathetic. if U have such a life why change your alias and try to make it seem like we (the fans) play taboo to guess who you are almost every time on the blog? why say the same bull over and over again? if your program is so prestigious why is it that you come on the blog bad mouth a team that basically ranned FLORIDA for about 20 yrs ( a streak UF WILL NEVA EVA DUPLICATE). yes UM is down but not for long all great programs have a down time and rise back. its funny how U think UF will dominate for another 20 yrs. hell, let them dominate for 5 yrs let alone 20.climb that mountain first.

I'm paying attention to the U...ITS REALLY BAD

keep holding my jock for a face protector, try dominate for a decade

HUGE win in the half empty DUNKIN DONUT center against MIGHTY Providence. Now that was SWAGGER. The mystique was definitely in action last night against powerful FRIARS. What the hell is a Friar anyway? Oh, its a monk or a brother. Nice job manhandling a religious school.

Tired of playing in the empty BUC and Dunkin Donut center? U will get a taste of what a real fan base is like friday night.
