The Miami Hurricanes baseball team concluded its 2023 regular season non-conference schedule blasting FIU 17-3. Miami athletic director Dan Radkovich had a busy day at the ACC meetings, discussing the future and denying rumors about two colleagues getting into an alleged heated debate.
After FIU took a 1-0 lead in the first inning Miami scored two in the third to seize the lead for good. The Miami Hurricanes had four innings with multiple runs. That included five runs in the sixth and ninth innings. Shortstop Dominic Pitelli had three hits and seven RBIs a few weeks after a nine-RBI game.
The Miami Hurricanes baseball team hosts Duke in huge weekend series to conclude the regular season. Miami and Virginia enter the final weekend tied for first place in the ACC Coastal with 16-11 records. Duke is 15-11 and North Carolina is 14-11. Virginia hosts Georgia Tech and North Carolina is at Clemson this weekend.
Radakovich appeared on Sirius XM to discuss the state of the ACC. Clemson, Florida State and Miami have reportedly led a seven-team consensus to change the distribution of how money is distributed. There have been reports that the future could include a bigger percentage of funds for winning programs.
Radakovich also posted on Twitter denying a report that Wake Forest athletic director John Currie was screaming at North Carolina State AD Boo Corrigan and Radakovich had to step in to break it up. Radakovich stated, “Total fabrication….not true…did not happen.” Radakovich equated the meetings to family discussions in the video.
Kyle Umlang who has a following of 44,000 on Twitter posted an extreme expansion idea for the Big XII to increase to 20 teams. The conference would pilfer eight ACC teams and the Big XII minus Oklahoma and Texas who are leaving for the SEC. The new conference would of course be dubbed the Big XX.
