    How a few have the energy to write so many on here is beyond my comprehension. I can't keep up with so many on one topic, or hardly any. Kudos. I wish that I was that damm smart. If I were still married though, I couldn't write this many as I have thus far. Obviously, some aren't really married either to write so many all of the time on here. Must be an ego thing best I can tell. Go little Hokies.

    No better way to quiet down a fan base that runs its mouth. It was a thorough whooping, no contest, Duke should have stayed in Durham and saved on Airline costs.

    I'm with you jgunn. I thought for sure that Duke would make a run in the second half and put some pressure on Miami. Karl Hess barely even made his presence known in the second half. I wonder if that had anything to do with the head of ACC officials being in attendance tonight?

    Anybody want to believe there's a lot of parity in the ACC this year? As I've said before (along with a lot of other folks) In any given night, any team in the ACC is capable of defeating another ACC team. It's getting back to like it use to be, with the exception that there's a lot more teams.

  • grh90 Jan 23, 9:10 p.m.

    Thank you Duke for taking a little ACC attention off the Wolfpack. I think Miami beats any opponent in NCAAB with how they played tonight (so much intensity). Duke weren't hitting making matters much worse. Miami looks like the real deal and obviously a serious contender for #1 in the ACC.

  • still heelman1973 Jan 23, 9:09 p.m.

    Did that graphic just say that was the 3rd worst defeat by a #1 team in history?

    I can tell you they won't be #2/3. If so, Syracuse, Kansas, Florida and several others will be livid.

    They were speculating that Michigan may take the #1 spot. I remember several years ago being ranked #1 was the Kiss of Death. As soon as a team was ranked #1, they'd lose a game and lose the #1 ranking.

    I was wrong with a capital "W"! I've learned over the years that no lead is safe when you're playing Duke. But, you're right, Miami is putting it to Duke big time. This is just so strange.

  • Hokies94 Jan 23, 9:02 p.m.

    Some comments are valid on the Sportsfan. Some are simple re-cycling another's postings. I read these, and I see a few that like to Jack it up too. I would venture to say that a few hardly even watch a game on here based upon their writings.

  • jrt0856 Jan 23, 9:01 p.m.

    They should drop out of the top ten with a lost like this, but they will probably drop to 2 or 3. And someone lose and they will back a number 1 again.

    Miami does have one of the "oldest" teams in the ACC - I think four starters are seniors and the other starter is a soph. Who knows what the NCAA will do. I was surprised that Frank Haith was implicated in a NCAA investigation.

    I vote no rush. If you crush a team like that, you are obviously the better team so there is no need.

    True, but no one knew how good Miami was back then, and it was Carolina, so the ABC'ers were celebrating. And I don't think Carolina lost by that much to Miami - I thought it was a pretty close game. Miami was in control most of the game, but it wasn't a blow out.

  • 903 mens national championships Jan 23, 8:56 p.m.

    They absolutely should rush the floor tonight. Because if they host Duke again next year, Jabari and Hood and company won't be losing that one. I think Miami has like 6 seniors, and some of these underclassmen will probably go in the draft if the NCAA hammers them anytime soon like they deserved months ago.

  • mxteam44 Jan 23, 8:56 p.m.

    I completely understand the excitement, and I don't worry too much about the players getting hurt.......it's more along the lines of an obnoxious fan doing something or saying something to a player, and in the heat of the moment, the player doing something they'll get suspended for. I've been in those situations, and it's tough to keep your composure after a game like this.

  • evadbbat Jan 23, 8:56 p.m.

    They could always do like Roy and leave 5 bench warmers on the court while he and the rest of the team head to the locker room.

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Jan 23, 8:54 p.m.

    Miami has never beaten a #1 team, so I think they'll rush the court. This win is huge for Laranaga and Miami.

    Our best game would not beat them tonight.
