UM women's tennis finishes Sweet 16 round at close to 1 a.m. EST -- but beats Northwestern to advance to NCAA quarterfinals

They did it again.

For the fifth consecutive season, the University of Miami women's tennis team has advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament.

The sixth-ranked Hurricanes, playing at the tournament site in Urbana, Ill., beat Northwestern 4-3. They didn't complete play until close to 1 a.m. Eastern time Saturday (match began Friday night).

The Canes get to rest on Saturday, before meeting No. 3 Texas A&M at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday.

If UM beats Texas A&M in the Elite Eight round, it would play in the national semifinals on Monday. If UM, in turn, won that match, it would advance to the national title round on Tuesday.

The Hurricanes finished as the national runner-up in 2006, but have never won a national title. 

 On Friday, it was  junior Melissa Bolivar who clinched the victory at the No. 6 spot by winning her final two games. She beat Nida Hamilton 7-6 (6), 1-6, 6-4.

 Also winning for UM were Stephanie Wagner at the No. 1 spot and Kelsey Laurente at the No. 2 spot, as well as the crucial doubles victories by Albuquerque/Riobueno and Wagner/Brittany Dubins.

 "I didn't feel comfortable throughout the match,'' Bolivar said after the match, as reported by UM sports information. "I just fought through it. You have to win, even though you're not playing your best. That's a quality we have.''

Congratulations Lady Canes!

Now, let's win it all!

congrats to the ladies and to the mens baseball team.

With a good showing in the ACC torunament the boys can possibly get a better seed in th NCAA regionals.

Goldenfraude has Delaware and Minnesota on FOUR ALARM LOCKDOWN

12 recruiting seasons have passed since UM baseball won their last CWS under Morris. Twelve recruiting rounds adn Morris has FAILED MISERABLY in trying to put together another chamoionship team. That is 3 classes of students. He commonly whines about how many of his recruits have gone to the pros but ignores that all top programs have the same issues. I dont get how Morris has been given a pass. MAybe he has gotten luckybecause of the revolving AD door who has not allowed one AD to carefully analyze just how stale, old, complacenta nd lazt he has become as coach of a one time PRIDE OF SOUTH FLORIDA. A ONE TIME PROUD CHAMPIONSHIP PROGRAM WHO MANY FEARED TO PLAY- AND ALL CWS REGIONALS YEAR IN YEAR OUT CAME THROUGH CORAL GABLES, RATHER THAN GAINESVILLE OR TALLY.

MORRIS NEEDS TO BE FIRED. THEY SHOULD HAVE FIRED HIMAFTER THE LOSS TO BETHUNE OR FGCU.

Otherwise we are just accepting mediocrity

Miami baseball problems starts with the pro's. Every year the pro's gut the hurricanes recruiting class. So what type of recruit do you recruit. If the pro's are circuling like vultures. Yes I agree that Morris should step aside and let a younger coach come in grow with the team under Morris tutolage. But not fire.

That so called gutting of miami by the pros is a lame excuse bc the pros gut every program. Esp. Florida nd FSU and others. That excuse is no longer valid.

Ok then, recruit the potential pros but for g..ds sakes do something with them for at least 1 yr

I am with you guys as far as a change in leadership for baseball We just don't agree on how to go about it. I believe if you take look at Pro baseball players since the 80's who were Miami recruits or played at UM. I believe the U is well represented compared to other schools. Such as Florida and Florida State.

Otherwise we are just accepting mediocrity

[]_[] have been getting served mediocrity in ALL Sports by Shalalalala for over a decade now and are still axing for seconds n thirds... What's new ?

What has Gatr Trash won since Timmy Bible-Thump's junior year? Hmmmmmm, lots of talk from a grotesque Pig.

We are going on 7 years now, maggot. Stop living in the past. Go back to your roach barbeque.

If I_I believe the NCAA is going to bite the tigers tail and take a chance of getting sued in Court.

The term the truth will set you free. It's not going to matter what the players did or didn't do. Mark Emmer it has to understand that some victories or won in loses. Do the NCAA really want the world to know how they got all there information. Does a certain banking institution want it's customers to know that it gives out valued banking transactions information without their permission and then cover it up. If you think the canes are going to be punish more think again.

Update on women's tennis

Lady canes eliminated by TAM
SEC SEC SEC dominates wimpy ACC
Even in womwen's sports

Best cane team taken down by SEC foe
The shame!

Miami will bring the pain to the NCAA (in terms of legal pain) if the punishment served is more than deserved. Prepare to see Emmert himself get sued for millions. If nothing else the U can get that $ and put into the athletics dept.

Canes will get through this trying period. Golden already has them at #10 in recruiting/ commits for 2014. Once this NCAA cloud passses, watch out. This joint will explode.

All about this []_[]- Whether the petty jealous gaytrs like it or not.

Hey gaytr dooshes- Clemson is playing UGA this year. when will your panzy a55es play OOC?

Oh yeahhhhh. 09.07.13.

Careful what you wish for.

Miami will bring the pain to the NCAA (in terms of legal pain) if the punishment served is more than deserved.

ExcUse me? Some incoherent blabber going on. Who decides how much punishment is deserved for your wrongdoings? Shalala? Don't think so imbecile.

Prepare to see Emmert himself get sued for millions. If nothing else the U can get that $ and put into the athletics dept.

Get what $? Who's gonna sue? Wishful thinking and more stupidity. Shalala paid 80k hush money not to be dragged into court and now she will initiate legal action? You some big dope.

We haven't even started the 2013 season and this idiot is already saying the canes are top 10 in 2014.
What happened to 2013? Oh yeah, not much just got smoked by UF, FSU, The SEC, most of the ACC, Big 10, PAC 12 and Big12 teams.
U some type of premature ejaculator setting up your hopes for 2014. I get it, wait til next year. That's it


Hey cane dooshes- Clemson is playing UGA this year. when will your panzy a55es play OOC?

No one else OOC? Pathetic.
How about in the weak ACC, Clemson? Nah
Just Wake and the usual pansies

Just another meaningless name for a fan of a meaningless team.

Bring what pain ? Sue the NCAA on what grounds? Hurt feelings ? Crying Criminal Victim Syndrome ? Maybe some unethical investigating that the NCAA retracted but certainly nothing criminal. You obviously are totally emotionally compromised as a see all be all Cane fan and have no idea about the Law. If the Canes sued they would lose and never even sniff the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The University of Miami joined the NCAA and when they did, they agreed to abide by their rules. It's a club with rules that they, and they only enforce. Just like any private club. Miami has been multiple offenders, multiple times within a small window of time in THREE Sports. That's what they are being sanctioned for. Not the severity of their "minor infractions." Miami is on their 4th. Strike all within 5 years of another. ie- Habitual Repeat Offenders.

As to the point if Miami did decide to sue. It is absolutely true that the NCAA could and certainly would subpoena hundreds of former players. They would put any former Cane athletes on the stand under oath and drill them for answers to prove of any wrong doings that could be far more damaging overall for the program. It would be a disaster for Miami if they really want to "just put this all behind us." (Gee, what guilty criminals don't say that?) Miami and their trustees are only blowing smoke and surely know taking the on the NCAA and their Billions would be like putting their own heads into a Guillotine.

Take off your orange n green glasses and brushup on the Law son... You're making it far to easy for those that know to laugh at Cane homers like you and countless others flapping your gums with nonsense.

Again... Sue for what ?

1) Malfeasance-
2) Willfully and maliciously attempting to obtain information that would harm the Miami program through means that are unethical (as has already been admitted)
3) Disproportionate length of time to complete this investigation (eg vendetta) in comparison to standard, historical equivalents. Three recruiting cycles have passed during which UM has not had closure.
4) Maliciously releasing information about UM/s NOI DURING NATIONAL SIGNING DAY

Please- That's just a start. A good lawyer can multiply what I just posted by 10 pages. Dont be so dumb.

I think the NCAA should sue the UFailure for being such disgusting trailer trash. Of course, UFailure would not want that as all of its former players, such as, ahem, Emmitt and Matt Patchan, would be called to testify and would agree with all charges.

Guilty as charged, you disgusting swamp donkeys. May the worthless diploma holders please stand up.

Did not read your post. Could not get past the first two words, after reading those I knew the whole thing was B.S. When the first two words you spew are a blatant lie no need to read the rest.

NEWSFLASH

LADY CANE UPDATE

WOMENS TENNIS ELIMINATED BY TAM OF THE SEC

CANES LOSE AGAIN
CANES LOSE
LOSE

Texas A&M is a bona fide Big 12 team dont get too cozy about that. 13 months ago They were a Big 12 fixture- Typical SEC leeches.

And dont be surprised if 10 years from now they swicth to the ACC, or the Big East kinda like TCU almost did.

SEC brethren= kissin cousins

SEC MOTTO FOR 2013:

" MY DADDY SAID i'M THE BEST KISSER"

"SOMETHING STINKS"

That was actually quite jocular. I think that is hilarious.

Jojer chump a55 gators come to Urban week this week, rednks,

ILL PUNCH EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU GATOR FANS IN THE MOUTH

A good lawyer can multiply what I just posted by 10 pages. Dont be so dumb

There is flip side to that coin papo. When I was incarcerated I read up on the law.

Jojer chump a55 gators come to Urban week this week, rednks,

ILL PUNCH EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU GATOR FANS IN THE MOUTH

So there it is 9.5.2 comes out of the closet as the cane thug he is. Guess a thug roots for thugs. Internet tough guy who threatens those he disagrees with with bodily harm. A cane thing.

UF Wins All-Sports Trophy... Again


Florida may not be the best team in every sport, but it is again the king of all sports.

As in the All-Sports Trophy.

For the 23rd time, the Gator athletic programs have won the award. It is presented by the Halifax Media Group, which owns 31 newspapers including The Gainesville Sun.

Florida easily outdistanced second-place Georgia by winning eight SEC titles, which tied the record for most conference championships won. Texas A&M, in its first year as an SEC school, finished third while Tennessee was fourth.

“Obviously, we're very proud of our coaches, our student-athletes and our entire staff,” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said. “You know the respect we have for the teams in this league. (The award) is not something we talk a lot about but we take great pride in it. It's not an easy thing to do.”

Because of the additions of two schools and an SEC-sanctioned sport (equestrian) with only four teams participating, the Halifax Media Group changed the way the scores are compiled. (No complaining — Florida would have won with the old scoring as well).

***Florida won SEC titles in men's basketball, women's cross country, gymnastics, soccer, softball, men's swimming and diving, women's tennis and volleyball.***

THAT'S 9 SEC CONFERENCE TITLES IN 1 YEAR !!!

[]_[] have won what ? 1 All-Cup-Cake Conference Title in 8 years ?

worse part of these turds is that they celebrate conference championships in womens sports - to our faces. Like many of us care about womens paddle boat races.

womens cross country
womens gymnastics
womens softball
womens soccer
womens equestrian

who the ( ) cares.

But in football, basketball, and baseball,

all time, national championships,

That little ol private school 200 miles south of traylerville, has 9

and your biga a55 tax supported diploma mill,

has 5.

And your long lost inbreds north of you in tally,

have 2

Like the dude with the password 9>5>2

Dont forget that

Good for you.

Great job Lady Canes!

Hope you win the entire tournament!

I see that UM has lost two more football players, Lockhart and Williams. Anyone know the back story?

This is a whole bunch of players lost.

I am questioning Golden et al's ability to coach a UM team and inspire player loyalty, work with tough kids and strengthen their commitment.

I do not believe D'Onofrio is capable of forming strong relationships with his defensive players, or motivating them to perform at high levels of play.

Hate to a pessimist, but this is yet another in a long string of negative indicators for the program. Something just isn't right.

One of three players that committed to the Florida Gators on Feb. 16 during its popular Junior Day event, four-star Rivals100 linebacker Christian Miller (Columbia, SC) officially decommitted from the team on Friday, according to ESPN‘s Kipp Adams and InsidetheGators.com‘s Blake Alderman.

This is a whole bunch of players lost.

I am questioning Mushchumps ability to coach a uf team and inspire player loyalty, work with tough kids and strengthen their commitment.

Hate to a pessimist, but this is yet another in a long string of negative indicators for the program. Something just isn't right.


SMD has hijacked and completely ruined this blog. WOMEN'S TENNIS??? Seriously? If they win the championship then maybe it deserves a brief mention but this is ridiculous. Football coverage has gone down hill as well.

LOOSERS!!!!!!!

Posted by: GaturdTrashSaysWhat?

What a moron you are comparing a 2014 recruit to 2 players currently on your team. Are you really that stupid? Cane logic for you or like my handle says............

Gaturd (and dumb f**ck Gallo) don't admit that Golden has currently the committed #10 2014 class. In 2013 he managed to pull off an excellent final recriting year despite the NCAa allegations looming, and NCAA announcments ON EFFEN SIGNING DAY!

Golden is a great recruiter and any one with a pubic hair worth of football knowledge (not Gallo, not Calvin, not cool cat) know that it takes more than 2 years to build a team.

A total of 21 players have transferred in Will Muschamp’s two years as head coach., including eight of Muschamp’s 19 signees from his first signing class.

Make that 22.....

POS Canetrash quote:

"football girls have been losing for a decade"

Hmmmmmmmmmm. Lets fact check his retarded a55

2012 (no the 2013 season hasnt started) minus 10= 2002

What happened since?

2002- UM wins the nC and it is stolen by a dirty ref
2003- UM wins BCS OB by beating FSU
2004- UM D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-S THE TRAYLERVILLE GATORS
2005- UM finishes 9-3
Along the way, UM is 3-0 up to that point against the Traylerville gators

Do the math, chump. Do the math.

Over 11 months ago, four-star wide receiver Ryeshene Bronson (Fort Myers, FL) became the first 2014 prospect to commit to the Florida Gators. On Tuesday, Bronson decided to rescind his pledge and reopen his recruitment, becoming the second prospect to part ways with Florida in the last five days.

I believe the Bronson de-commit was about grades. This kid won't qualify for a Florida school - FSU, UF, or UM. He'll end up at WVU or another school of the sort. Good kid, just struggles in the classroom.

The quoted word says it all...about the poster.
Can't spell, can't think, doesn't work, lives at home.

To "Gallo" or whomever you are, every school, from the U to Notre Dame has MISTAKES, kids with big egos, but the unwillingness to work hard, keep themselves into studies, and stay off Twitter. it is the culture, and until the PC police are gone, and folks can tell these kids what constitutes proper behavior and discipline, the rate of attrition at all schools will continue. t least Golden has the stones to do what has to be done.

When a student in an "urban" school can curse, and even physically abuse a teacher a NOT BE SUSPENDED something is wrong with the SYSTEM.
The excuse is "if you suspend these kids, the girls will get pregnant, and the boys will get into dealing drugs" is IMO, racism of the worst source. If you want ton HELP these kids, give them the tough love the deserve and NEED.

Instead, we reward athletic achievement, ignoring the fact they are lacking character and guidance.
I HAVE THE STONES to say this, and do so with only SYMPATHY for kids with promise who were never given the discipline and support they need to live their dreams.

Gallo, what you post (these player "lists") is mean spirited, and only serves to ridicule those kids who messed up because they didn't have the prior guidance and tough love to allow them to succeed.
