For some reason PGP being a Miami fans does not surprise me in the slightest. They just fit together perfectly.

FYI - My mom is from Miami so I root for the Dolphins and Hurricanes.

PGP, is it wrong for me to say thanks for Saban. He didn't do much for the Dolphins anyway.

Is there a better college quarterbqck in the nation today than Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen? I predict that without injury he will go in the first round of the pro draft his senior year. Well, maybe Tim Tebow of Florida if you include outstanding bullish running ability and outstanding leadership ability. It will be interesting how the pros will see Tebow in the draft..

So much for my predictions.

Still was a wild day,my favorites Texas,Iowa,& Mizzo all won,so I'm happy.
Some crazy games;
How about Washington?
The Cincy Bearcats are for real.Great QB
Texas had all they could handle with TT.
I love college FB.
Miami might be a little better than people thought would be.

Oldscout - The Hurricanes have raided every prison in the state of Florida and have put together this team. The real test is next week at Blacksburg versus Va Tech then in 2 weeks a home game against a Sam Bradford-less Oklahoma Team. I thought the real test would be midterms (lol)I am very pumped up about my Hurricanes. Hopefully they can continue putting up crooked number after crooked number in the Win Column and put a hurting on opponents in the process. 2 games against 2 ranked opponents and both conference and divisional games has really showed me that Randy Shannon has these guys hungry and focused. Averaging 35.5 pts in this young season. If Nebraska gave Va Tech a hard time today and Va Tech almost lost to a crappy Nebraska squad, look out Hokies because next week won't be an easy game. The Miami swagger might be back if they can take these next two games. When I saw the schedule first come out I sincerely thought this team would start the season 0-4 (@ Fla St, Ga Tech, @ Va Tech, & Oklahoma). I'm glad they proved me wrong. It's time to revert back to the Jimmy Johnson/Dennis Erickson days of not only beating an opponent but also embarrassing an opponent. Last year they beat Va Tech 16-14 to say goodbye to the Orange Bowl. In 2007, Va Tech beat Miami 44-14 in Blacksburg. Payback's a B*TCH. The same goes for Oklahoma this year when they come to Land Shark Stadium. OU beat Miami in Norman back in 2007 51-13. Time to beat them like the dogs that they are and get some payback on October 3.

What happened to #1 Florida on Saturday?  They had all of the bulletin board material vs. Tennessee yet couldn't do any better in the friendly confines of the swamp than UCLA did in hostile Knoxville.

I thought the SEC prided itself on defense yet Florida looks no better than the Bruins. 
The defensive stats for the two games against Tenn. are nearly identical.

Rushing defense = 117 (UF), 115 (UCLA)
Passing defense = 93 (UF and UCLA)
Total UT yards = 210 (UF), 208 (UCLA)
Points given up by D = 13 (UF and UCLA)

Was it just a bad day for Florida?  In all fairness, UCLA is 16th in the country in overall defense.

JG-I have read a number of articlesthat say Tebow is not a NFL type QB,I don't know, think I would take a chance on him.He is a terrific athlete& leader as you say,although he might want to get a few successful games under his belt before he starts yelling at some of his NFL teammates.

I like Clausen,there are a lot of good QB's out there.I like the guy Pike from Cincy.& this Locker at Washington looks like a good one.

I played with a guy 50 years ago in college that threw 3-4 td's left handed ,he was RH.He also pitched a high school baseball game RH one day& LH next.Altough I went to a D-3 school,my buddy started all four years in FB,basketball & baseball at the college.Was also a GREAT fp softball pitcher.

Jimmy Clausen is SICK and might just be saving Charlie Weiss's job for him. I feel dealthy sorry for the Trojans when Clausen comes to town. If they couldn't handle Locker, they will have nightmares with Clausen.

My friend taught at LSU and Saban screwed them over. I had a feeling he'd screw us over when he came to Miami. No love for Saban in SFLA.

Wanabe - you know none of the criminals on the Hurricanes take MidTerm Exams. They can't even read. As long as they can block and tackle and run and catch and throw they don't even need to go to class in Coral Gables.

toroman - Thanks but no thanks. Tebow might be drafted as a tight end or an H-back - tight end in the third round. Then again, someone who is smarter than both of us might take a shot at him as a QB - Wildcat back and he might play in the Pro Bowl. He is one heckuva college football player and a terrific person. His game just doesn't fit the pro football QB mold, and people say he doesn't have the strong arm, but I wouldn't bet against him.

JG-A guy that always comes to mind for me when I watch Tebow is the great Tom Matte of the Baltimore Colts.Remember 40+ years ago when he led them to NFL championship over my Packers& finally Cowboys,after they made a QB out of him when Johnny U & I think Cuozzo got injured.Might have been the first wildcat back & nobody realized it.Great story if you remember, he had everything written on tape on his wrist,now of course they have the fancy wristbands,that probably made someone a millionaire.I thought Matte was great & so is Tebow.

Not everybody's happy over at USC.  I guess losing to a team that was 1-15 in its last 16 games with the only winless season (0-12) ever for a Pac-10 team will bring out the worst in fans. Check out FirePeteCarroll.org.




P.S.  Fun Fact: Washington and Duke are the only two BCS teams to go winless in a season.

old scout - Wow, how great it is to communicate with a guy who remembers Tom Matte. Guts personified !! He was a Pittsburgh kid - where I grew up - who starred as a running back at Ohio State and then the Colts. He was 6 years younger than I. It was a far different game then, and Tebow would have fit in beautifully. When I was a kid, a tackle for the Steelers lived in my blue collar town - he played at Pitt in 1938 which was the same year that Matte was born- (they weren't paid much - remember the old Steagles?), and he took me to the games at old Forbes Field when the Steelers ran single wing, and Bullet Bill Dudley out of West Virginia was a triple threat at tailback. Bill Garnaas was the blocking back (quarterback). Ironically, that tackle's boys played at the high school I coached later on and which I had attended. Those were the days before face masks when everybody had a broken nose and the sign of a great blocker was "burns" on the side of his face. I played before and after face masks. Face masks were better.

Charlie - That picture gives new meaning to the phrase "What have you done for me lately". Also, I forget who said it, but it is an important value: "Treat them all good on the way up because you will meet them on the way down" (Ted Williams?).

I think people are sadly misguided if they think any USC fan is ready to fire Pete Carroll. He has done more for USC than anyone has done for UCLA since John Wooden.

I'm sure plenty of UCLA fans would love to see Carroll fired though. And Lord knows this USC fan wants Rick Neuheisel and his "hot air" to stay at UCLA.

PGP, I'm pretty sure there is no love for Saban in most of the world. But in all honesty, how can LSU fans say Saban screwed them over. I mean they got Les Miles, seems like an even and fair trade. Alls I know is that I would NEVER want to coach at LSU.

JG-Wow,I used to love the Chicago Cardinals.when I was a kid they had awful teams,think they had losing record last 10+ years or so,before going to St Louis.

The last game the Cards won was against Pittsburgh.
Jim Thorpe was a Chicago Cardinal,but I was only about 8-9 at that time.
My 2 favorites were Ollie Matson & Night train Lane.

Not sure what year it was ,but remember 1 year the Cards had not one a game & played the first place bears the last game of the season.The cards owner or GM, told the players if they went winless for the season,they wouldn't get paid....good motivation, they upset the Bears.

Got to go take a nap,I'm feeling old for some reason.

My friend taught English at LSU and when they re-structured his contract a lot of professors at LSU were let go and the same for support personnel at LSU. He got paid big time after he got them a Nat'l Title and then got itchy for the NFL. Unfortunately he came to Miami and only stayed for 2 years and bolted for Alabama. LSU fans hate him for jumping ship to the NFL and they hated him more for returning to the SEC at Alabama.

I actually like Sparano as my Head Coach in Miami. Nick Satan Saban can stay out of South Florida like Ryan Leaf is no longer welcome in San Diego. Parcells is rebuilding a once proud franchise. We will endure our lumps as Dolphins fans and just wait patiently until the team is very very good again.

2010 could be the year for the Fins and the Canes as they are both looking more than respectable this season. The Canes have shocked all the pundits.

old scout - I played basketball against David Mann in Alaska - he played football with the Chicago Cardinals as a halfback and punter. Another guy that I remember in Alaska from the Cardinals was Ralph Thomas (end). I got a better per diem Special Services deal with my baseball coach playing volleyball so I didn't play football there. That was before Alaska was a state.

10-4  that schedule sounded brutal for the first 4 games of this season for "The U". Fla St, GA Tech, VA Tech, and then Oklahoma. 2 down 2 to go. It would be nice to escape Blacksburg with a win this Saturday. Not overlooking the Hokies for anything. I expect Javarris James to run between the tackles and bust one run for daylight into the end zone. This team is gaining confidence day by day. As long as Luther Campbell and 2 Live Crew stay out of Coral Gables the Canes will be focused. Even Sebastian the Ibis has been on his best behavior even though I miss his antics of running along the opposing sideline with his toy Tommy Machine Gun that shoots water. When he did that he really annoyed Bobby Bowden and Steve Spurrier.

Yikes!  Pete Carroll in the same paragraph with John Wooden.  Blasphemous!

PGP, and I guess the world is in harmony, because we are just fine having Saban at Alabama right now. And much like Saban isn't welcome in So. Florida and Leaf isn't welcome in San Diego, Dennis Franchione better not step foot inside the state of Alabama. As a true Alabama fan, can I tell you how beautiful it was to watch his flop of a career at TAMU.

Jayrot - I forgot about Franchione. Can't blame you for enjoying his debacle at TAMU. He's a walking disaster as a Coach. If he does step foot in Alabama again he might get thrown behind bars and will have to get Vincent LaGuardia Gambini to defend him on the charges of impersonating a Football Coach.

You could get 53 kids off the playground and play a Dennis Franchione led team and you'd come out on the winning side. He could seriously screw up a cup of coffee.
