Hey Jeremy ,can I guess what school you went to. Your bias in your reporting shows a lack of your commitment to your profession. As you could guess I am a canes fan,but I don't glorify a simple win on home court asTHE PINNACLE OF BASKETBALL ACIEVEMENT. Go back to reporting at your Alma mater. Expecting more of the fourth estate.

Sounds like you are a little bit bitter. If the canes had won, you would have loved the article that would have been written. The fact is, the Gators dominated your canes team. GO GATORS!!!!!!!

Very good win for the Gators. This team has problems which can only be overcome by recruiting front court players. Hopefully the Gators can seize some momentum for next year.

How many times have we seen teams criticize that they were snubbed by the NCAA selection committee only to get an early depature from the NIT.

Have you noticed the field of teams who have been in the NIT in recent seasons!?! Georgetown, Kentucky, Syracuse, Maryland, Florida. These are quality hoops programs who had disappointing seasons.

There are over 300 NCAA D1 hoops programs. Only 65 get an invite to the big dance. It's not like FBS CFB where almost 50% of the teams get invited to a bowl game.

Playing in the NIT is like playing in a December bowl game. It may not be glamorous, but it beats cleaning out your locker at the end of the regular season.

Please note that Jeremy writes for the Orlando Sentinel, not the Sun Sentinel. The Sun Sentinel not only passed on any lead story for this game, they didn't even cover the event. Haven't you noticed that the Sentinel coverage of the Hurricanes mirrors the attendance and support of most Cane "fans". Win, and you get support. Lose, and no one shows up.

Attendance at the UM senior day game -McClinton's last home game - was well under 3000 people. Pathetic when you think about it given the quality wins UM posted this year in the tough ACC.

At least the canes BB coach didn't cry that the Gators ran the score up like Baby Shannon did.

Then don't read and comment on it if you "could care less". You're just wasting your time. You're not a true Gator Fan.

Another post by a sad canes fan. If the canes had won, your tone would be different. You would be on here running your mouth. In regards to football, had your team joined a real conference like the SEC, we would play you more often.

Miami was blown out in that game too. Do Miami fans like punishment, or what?

You can't handle the Gators in football every year! Whats in it for the Gators besides an easy win and dropping the strength of schedule rating for the Gators? Your Canes are nothing but Homecoming sacrificial lambs anymore!

Are you too stupid to understand he is the beat writer for the Gators? If the U had a following they might have one also.
