I am proud of the Canes .
Haith and his players proved everyone wrong. Picked last in the ACC , they made it a long way .
Thanks for playing as hard as you did , and keep up the great work.
Go Canes !

Did I mention that the Gators are in the NIT this year? Get on your side of the lake, "Gatorsrulz," and stay there please.

See, Gatorsrulz thinks that reining is a sport.

You know, like he thinks that lynching is a sport. Try to accept that his spelling, his logic, and his racism are all atrocious.

Maybe he figures they are really good at telling a horse "Whoa!".

You know, if the Gators win the NIT tourney they'll have a pretty good argument that they're champions three years running, er sorta kinda...
still more than alot of teams can say.

Maybe someone should tell him that Tennessee played the Gators twice this season and beat them twice. Also that Tennessee is the SEC Champs and maybe that they just advanced to the Sweet 16, which is all nice and everything but the SEC title is the most important.
GO VOLS.

Congradulations to Coach Haith and the Hurricanes for a successful season. We were picked to be in the cellar of the ACC and proved them wrong. True our success came in our non-ACC schedule which had many cupcakes. With that being said we grinded out our in conference schedule with few dissapointments and a couple of improbable wins. For this team with only one go to guy that was great. We made the tournament and advanced. That shows progress for this program.

The next step is to land a Mc Donalds All-American(s) and surround them with role players in Frank's system. This is the only way to inprove from here. We have a quality Coach and he need talented players. Give it time and recruits will warm to the "U".

Actually, the Gaytors were dethroned the moment they did not qualify for the tournament. So, they are the ex-champs. This year, the 'Canes did better.

Well, Georgia won the SEC Title, as I can correctly remember. Tennessee has had a great year though, and its great when they beat UF

Well, I was about to post a comment to this site congratulating the "canes" on doing so well but then I saw this sad person's post and decided not to. Leave it to a "canes fan" to start the name calling("Gaytors"). What a shame he/she is so jealous of what the Gators have done. GO GATORS!!!!

Congrats to the Canes - they came very close to pulling off a major upset in the Texas game. Again, they should be commended for making a good run in the Tourney.

Hi, Vols fan you need to check again. Tenn did not win the SEC, Georgia did. Oh, that's right, you won the "regular season" title. Oh well, good luck in the rest of the Tourney. GO GATORS!!!!

This is a basketball article, right??? Leave it to a Canes fan to resort to talking about football titles. I mean come on, are we going to start counting gymnastics and volleyball and swimming etc etc????? Give me a break! It's Gators 2 Canes 0. You had a decent season, great, but you haven't even come close to accomplishing what the Gators have. 4 sweet 16s, 3 final 4s, 3 championship games, and 2 titles in the last 10 years.
