The University of Miami Hurricanes brought some payback to the Virginia Cavaliers this past weekend and celebrated homecoming in style.
Two years ago, Miami suffered its most humiliating defeat in school history at the hands of the Cavaliers – loosing 48-0 on the final night in Hurricane Orange Bowl history. I went to that game and it hurt. It hurt bad.
Miami played quite well – scoring 28 unanswered second half points to top UVA 52-17. The win also earned the Canes a couple spots in the BCS rankings – moving them up to #14 overall.
Next up for The U are the UNC Tarheels in a pivotal ACC matchup to be broadcast on ABC.
This was the first game I watched wholly via ESPN’s online streaming service, ESPN360.com. Overall the viewing experience was more than I expected – in particular I liked how my Win Media Center remote could still operate the volume – essential for commercial breaks. I also liked how the video would automatically return to full screen once the ads finished playing. All I need now is an ESPN360 desktop app like Hulu has and I’d be golden.
