Haith named assistant for USA Basketball

Even before the Canes basketball season was over, we kept hearing rumors Frank Haith was going to go coach somewhere else. Monday, those rumors finally became a reality when Haith was named an assistant for the U.S. Basketball team at the World University Games in Serbia next month.

The games are held July 2-12 in Belgrade, Serbia. The head coach is Bo Ryan of Wisconsin. Wisconsin-Milwaukee coach Rob Jeter is also an assistant.

That's a pretty nice honor for Haith, who has led UM to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and NIT Tournament the past two seasons.

> Speaking of UM coaches, Jim Morris will be made available Tuesday morning to talk about the season and what's next for his program after their season ended Sunday night with a loss to the Gators in the regionals.

It's hard to blame Morris or his players for what happened this season. They lost six studs from the 2008 team then lost Eric Erickson before the year even began. This team simply never had the bats in the lineup to survive.

I'd be interested to see which juniors will decide to return. Other than closer Kyle Bellamy, I can't imagine any of the Canes' upper classmen are going to be draft worthy. Shortstop Ryan Jackson had a terrible season with his bat. First baseman Jason Hagerty could probably improve his stock considerably with a stellar senior season. For a change, it would be good to see this program actually keep some talent instead of losing it to the draft.

Think Adan Severino could have helped the Canes and himself this year? He got drafted in the 26th round by the Twins and is hitting .203 for the Beloit Snappers of the Midwest League.

This will be good for Haith. Maybe he'll learn how to actually coach and not rely on just recruiting talent. For that matter, Haith should bring RS along. He need to learn to coach, too. It's too bad we didn't get Wall. He coulda put us on the map as a program and be able to say he was the FIRST great play at UM as I hope in the future there will be many more chances than Wall.

BTW Janoris Jenkins of UF was arrested at a bar at 2 A.M.
God dam gayturds. He was tasered HAHA.
As for baseball, wait 'til nex year.

IT IS TIME FOR Jim Morris TO GO -- HE HAS AND WILL KEEP ON LEAVING PITCHER IN THE GAME THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT. TIME AFER TIME -HE SPOT THE OTHER TEAM TO 4 0R 5 RUN BEFORE HE REMOVE THE PITCHER HE HAS IN
WHAT THE HELL!!! SAME OLD STORY RUN MIAMI CANES IN TO DIRT --BEFORE ONE TAKE JIM MORRIS OUT. THEY CALL ME FOR MONEY
ONE ANSWER NO NO NO ALL CANES ALUMNI SHOUD STOP GIVING TO UM
UNTIL THEY TAKE THE HEAD OUT OF THE SAND. THE SAME WENT FOR FOOTBALL

Miami needs to pick up Dallas Lloyd.

Here's are some video's of him.

You must be insane???@@!!! Jim Morris has done nothing but win here at the U. There is one person who needs to go and it's YOU!

Manny....where is Eddie Rios? has he enrolled at another program??

Oh great now Team USA will pretend and pretend but never contend

The University of Felons is really keeping the Police Blotter busy with their 24th arrest in four years yesterday. But yet, We're Thug U. go figure.

Morris has this nice cushy job, but has become complacent. The 2001 NC coach has fallen asleep. maybe gotten old. Something to ponder.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — It took 29 years, 11 tries, six coaches and hundreds of players for Florida to finally beat Miami in an NCAA regional.

Miami made an NCAA-record 37th consecutive postseason appearance when it faced Jacksonville Friday. Nebraska's football team had made it to 35 straight bowl games before the streak was snapped in 2007.
-- hurricanesports.com

Do the FIU clowns know how bad UF fans rip them? If they did, they would not join with the idiot Gaytrs and rip UM. I guess FIU students are so low on the educational totem pole they do not even know when they are being insulted.

Get a clue, FIU. Gaytrs fear UM that is why they rip them. Gaytrs laugh at FIU. You are not even in the conversation unless the conversation is about joke schools.

Good stuff green show these idiots whats up, love the gator tid bit, 29 years almost on par with football to how long it took to beat us... this just means its time to start another 20 something year streak

U qUit Canes ...

This will be good for Haith. He'll be able to learn different coaching techniques from those other guys as well as teach them some, too.

As far as baseball, someone needs to light a fire under someone. Last year's disappoint, and this year's crumble at the end is not good. We must dominate!

GO CANES!!!

OK. It sure wasn't a very good season for Hurricane baseball. But pull out a pen and paper and write down Jim Morris's record since he arrived at Miami. He's been, and still is, the best of the best in all of college baseball. Lets face it, we just didn't have the horses this year.

How does Tim Tebow afford courtside seats for a Magic-Cavs game that cost thousands of dollars? Oh yeah, right, his Mom bought them for him...and the cat ate his homework, too. How about a receipt, Mommy?

Is this guy going to get a pass from the NCAA or will they at least look into this?

Check for yourselves. Me, I'm smelling an NCAA infraction:

Frank Haith and Jim Morris are doing great things at miami and will continue! Gators 24 arrests in 4 years way to go urban lier! go canes!

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!


Shut up U whiney lil Cane baby

Hey if you focus on the Gators why are you on our board...and how did Tebow score those hard to get tickets anyway. Yeah, I know whenever I want courtside seats to an NBA playoff game I just go right to my mom. Makes a lot of sense, right?

"You will never see another player pray for courtside seats like I will. You will never see another team play harder for courtside seats like this team will."

- Jesus Tebow just prior to tipoff outside the O-Rena.

ROFLMAO

Priceless. Funniest thing I've read in days. A tip of the "U" cap goes to you, my friend, Mr. "He prayed for them"

A classic

That's godd stuff guys. Even the turd doesnt have an answer for that one.

It's just a matter of time before the NCAA hammer comes down. you watch. It's coming down on USC 5 years after their last NC.4 years after reggie Bush. that's how long it takes. 24 arrests shows a program in dissarray. First that, then NCAA and then parents wont want kids to go to that stinking cow hole.

By the way turd, can youplease respond to why UF is sending so many players to jail?

If you want to go to school in a big city, NY, Boston, Miami, LA are the places.

If you want to go to school in a nice college town, Trailerville doesn't crack the top 200. Once sniff of that toxic trailer park dump and you'll know why.

Good stuff green show these idiots whats up

Two major-league scouts said no UM player is first-round worthy in next week's draft, but one said first baseman Jason Hagerty is good enough to go in the first five rounds because of his power; shortstop Ryan Jackson in that range or soon after; and closer Kyle Bellamy in the first 10 rounds.

Morris: "team lacked overall chemistry". Ok, maybe that's true Jim, so isn't YOUR job as the leader and coachof this team to ensure that there IS team chemistry? Stop with the excuses. Your coaching s-ked this year and it showed with a late season m-e-l-t-d-o-w-n.

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/30/sports/30colleges.html?_r=1&ref=ncaabasketball

In late April, students rebuffed the financially troubled athletic department at the University of New Orleans. They voted against a fee increase to help pay for varsity sports, leaving the university to consider dropping baseball, basketball and every other sport.

Not all the votes are binding, in part because relatively few students tend to cast ballots.
In April 2008, in a general fee referendum, students at Fresno State voted against raising athletic fees …
the Fresno State president overrode the vote and approved an increase

Students seem less inclined to pick up the tab, especially at universities that do not field major-college football teams. Universities where students recently voted down fee increases seem to have a couple of things in common: They are primarily commuter colleges, where students may be less invested in sports; and they do not compete in major football conferences

GOING RATE

One of the things we did (during last fall’s BCS bidding), candidly, is take (ESPN’s) pulse. Is ESPN going to treat us fairly? And the answer was, ‘You have our word that we will.’ We accept that. And we accept that they will make a fair and equitable deal. … What equals fair is the precedents they have set already with, for instance, the SEC deal. You look at that as a benchmark.
-- img’s barry frank

Jim Morris must go??? Are you insane? The guy has been to the college world series 11 of the last 16 years. That's like saying Coach K should go after Duke loses in the first round of the NCAA tournament one year.

Good for Haith. I hope he learns a thing or two. MANNY, what's up with Brandon Knight???

EZrip, that's right. And Coker went to 2 NCs in a row, technically won 2 in a row, finished in the top 5 3 years in a row, Had the best winning ptg by any coach from 2001-2006, including USC, texas and OSU, and look where we are now.

Most of us CAne fans, for better or for worse, right or wrong ARE NOT CONTENT WITH "JUST SHOWING UP" TO THE CWS, LET ALONE REGIONALS. UNLESS WE GET BEAT LIKE AGAINST LSU WITH A WALK OFF HR IN THE 9TH TO LOSE THE CWS, ANYTHING ELSE IS GARBAGE.
That's why it must be examined. he made very poor decisons this year,and he seems nice and content and complacent/ too compalcent. Soemeone light a fire under his -----

once again i am embarrassed to be a hurricane fan. frank haith earns the honor of coaching
for the united states and what do we do? criticize and ridicule our coach. we should be embracing that a coach from miami was selected to represent the country, but only in miami can we find a way to criticize it instead of being proud. there can't be more hateful fans in the country than those in miami.

Awesome info Green! Looks like UM is still the Darling of ESPN! Lokks like the whole conference is the Darling of ESPN! I wonder what the ratings will be like for the Labor Day game against FSU????

Can you get us UF's 1st 4 game schedule for TV? I bet ESPN has cleared the boards for the Charleston game! Toledo should be a nail biter as well!

Thanks again!

Go 'canes!

Don't forget you all- UM has the top 3 highest rated TV games in history- 2 of them vs FSU.

Hate us, love us, fear, us, we still the U

Awesome info Green!
