Posted this on another thread but just wanted to say thanks for posting these pics of the Center. I haven't been able to go see the place myself so it's nice to see these pics. I also have a brick there with my name on it so definitely want to go see that too. Thanks again!

Saw the pictures and just had to say thanks for posting these! I've never been to the new facility so it's nice to see the pics. I hope to go someday myself and see all those trophies for myself. I also have a brick outside somewhere with my name on it so really want to check that out someday. Thanks again!

Good article as always.

I'm turning 50 this year (in complete denial about that) and I fully expect to see five more national football championships, at least one basketball championships and at least one championships for my beloved tennis team, men and women. The anticipation makes me happy.
For the record, I'm very relieved that Golden is returning. I'll save most of my vile for PSU who IMO thought they could come in and snatch Golden away just because he came from there. He's turned them downed twice now so may they never darken our doorstep again. As for Golden, he needs to finish strong with this class and let his buddy D'Onofrio go find other employment. He lost a lot of fan support this week and those are the only things that will win the fans back Go Canes!

I am thrilled that Meyer lost again. Finally getting exposed.

Rob Chudzinski gets my vote.

Sites going down, posters cursing each other, erroneous sources and newsbits flying around, etc. Just stopped in, looking for refuge from the storm.

Ok, I get the message. Go Canes!

Just noticed Barry Larkin was born the same year I was. Kind of a sobering thought.

Maybe a 2-seed isn't such a bad thing. This will make the guys play hungry through the next six games. Wouldn't it be hilarious if the Miami Hurricanes, who are preparing to take the NCAA to court over their LOIC, also take the NCAA's most treasured NCAA Hoops Championship? Wouldn't surprise me if the NCAA eventually tries to strip it away from us ala USC.

86Cane, I'll swing by and pick up one on my way to the BUC!!! On a side note, the men's tennis team got their first ACC win of the season, beating Georgia Tech 4-3. This was a must win if they are going to get to the NCAA tourney this year. Record is now 10-5. They're already two wins ahead of last year's total!

I've woken up at 1am every morning for the last three days to watch the games and should be dragging at work today. But I am so proud and excited about the season this team has given us! My feet haven't touche the ground yet. Someday, I'm going to the Schwartz Center and taking a pic with the ACC trophy and then I'm going to the BUC and stand under our championship banner!

Set my alarm for 1:30am and still woke up before it went off. I'm psyched and ready for this game! Beat NC State. no better opportunity than this year. Take it Canes!

It was a really good effort by the men's tennis team today. They fought down to the last tiebreaker against the 25th-ranked Clemson. They lost but if they can fight the rest of the ACC season the rest of the season, they'll finish with a .500 or better record and make it to the ncaa tournament. If you're on Twitter, give Marco Stancati a follow as he lost his second tough match-deciding tiebreaker in the last couple of weeks. Georgia Tech on Sunday. This is one of the must wins! My preview for the rest of the Canes' season. (Post #46) http://www.caneinsider.com/tennis/52875-hurricanes-tennis-2012-13-a-5.html

The early 60s and late 90s teams were good too. If the Canes make the Sweet 16 this year, then they are definitely the best Miami team in history.

Heartbeat finally getting regular again. Live to fight another day. I'm tired of all these ACC bottom-feeder teams. Let's play up to the level we are capable of and take this thing.

They peaked a couple months ago. Not looking good now. I'm really wondering if they will be able to get their mojo back.

It's almost midnight here and there's no way I'm sleeping tonight. Hoops at 1am and tennis vs Clemson at 3am. Let's go Canes. Don't let me lose sleep for nothing!

The men's tennis team starts their ACC season this Friday with a visit from #25 Clemson. The Canes currently ranked #70 with a record of 9-4. They have 15 more dual matches scheduled and need to win 3 of their 11 ACC matches and the final two OOC matches to have a chance for the NCAA tournament this year.

After that horrible game on Tuesday, they really needed to respond and I think a 9-2 win qualifies. The next series with UNC is gonna be a huge test for these guys. At least one win is needed. But it was nice to see the team hit back today.

I sure hope they got it out of their system. That was bad.
The Canes have cut the lead to 9-4. But playing lousy today.

Congratulations to Coach Larranaga, Larkin, Scott and the team for all the awards they are getting. This is a season I'll remember forever. Still three more nets to cut down though! Can't wait for the weekend.

It's perfect. April 8th America time will be April 9th Japan time. My 49th birthday (I'm in denial about the 49th part). What a way that would be to celebrate my last 40s b-day! I want one of those crystal balls for my birthday present!
