I could not find this story in my edition of the Orlando Sentinel. There was also no story of the University of Miami Baseball Game. I have called before and they told me the game was over too late. College Baseball games are often played a 7pm and the Tenn. vs Memphis Basketball game which ended an hour later was in the paper. They also had enough room in the paper to tell everyone about the LSU baseball game. I think it is intentional and it is sad that the writers(I have never seen an article by anyone calling himself the editor) are making such an overt effort to control what teams someone roots for.

I think the Orlando Sentinel intentionally left out the stories about the University of Miami Men's Basketball and baseball game and I think it is bizarre that so many writers at one paper would hate an instate team like they do here. Every time a writer leaves, I think that is good, maybe we will get someone who is impartial. That never happens. It must be coming from the top.

Well, it is an Orlando paper. They carry the Gators results even if they are late, and LSU is SEC, so it gets attention. But hey, thanks for noticing it, and ESPN usually has some of the details. :)

Completely agree. Even FSU gets a nod every once inawhile. I was just shocked I was able to watch the Duke and Maryland games on TV here.

Regardless, great games by the Canes, and there's always the Internet to follow them.

This is my LAST post in the Sentinel. The Herald had better info on the CANES. For Pete sake, who gives a flying F about Tenn/Memphis in South Florida. Here the Canes are doing something special,a nd they barely print anything. GOOD BYE!

You all act surprised that there is no Cane coverage in an Orlando paper. Those fools live and die over every word or action muttered about UiF
