Tough football day yesterday. The Canes lost a game they should have won and Auburn got the snot beaten out of them. I went to the Miss St v Alabama game and Bama proved they deserve to be #1.

On another note I just read that Will Muschump has been fired.

Where are all of our dipshit Gator friends when we need them.

Big Baby,

left you a couple of missives on the previous thread.

FZB,

miami spit out the bit (horse racing for gave up) last night when they had a huge first half lead. however, as the ole shadow foresaw:
A) duke johnson wouldn't break a long run on FSU,
B)phillip dorsett would be tough to cover (see UM's first TD; avg. of 22 yards/catch is great, but well below his season avg. of about 30 per catch,
C)FSU would wear the faster, lighter canes down (which they did for 2 1/2 quarters,

missed PAT and short FG botched did not help the canes, as did young mr. barrios (not wes welker yet) by dropping TD passes. even the injuns radio team were in shock over the first one. gene deckerhoff (sic) is a really good broadcaster and his color(ed) man is somewhat listenable, unlike don bailey, jr. he must have been ready to throw hisself out of the press box when things became unraveled.

GEEZ, ARIZONA STATE LOST!!!

the sun devils are having a good season, but if they are a top 10 team (as they were before getting beaten by oregon state), something is really wacky. they play in a mediocre conference against mediocre opponents and whose probbale champion- the mallards of oregon- will get steamrollered by any of 3-4 teams in the SEC west. marriota is a very fine football player, but if they get into the last four it says here they get trampled by a bigger,stronger and maybe just a little slower team.

(the real) david in los angeles

nightmare of a loss yesterday; just awful.
we had em.
did it look to anyone else here like they just played it too safe in the 2nd half?
FSU had no answer for our passing game down the middle and it looked like they abandoned that strategy in the 2nd half; they just played it too safe.
we're bigger and better than last year; no more sanctions and with another year or 2, we should be fine. lot's of young guys on the field for the canes last night..

FSU wins. They sometimes don't look good doing it but they win no matter what. Great teams win when it looks like they are going to lose. FSU is a great team. That said, I have the Muschump lead Gutters find a way to beat the Criminoles. I can't stand that smug SOB Shamus Jameis.

the shadow knows

(the real) dave,

as stated above, missing a PAT and a relatively short FG left UM in a mental tizzy from which they never recovered. the big plays were not there in the last 2 1/2 quarters (as per our host) and FSU was just bigger and stronger. and barrios (sic) dropping two TDs even had the injuns radio team incredulous. w/o the big plays of the game's beginning, the injuns hust outmuscled UM. the four lost points were injurious to the cause both on the scoreboard and the mindset of UM's youngish team. mister duke johnson ran well, but as expected he wsn't gonna reel off a "run bomb" against a fast bunch of seminoles. they were totally outplayed after 23-7, and will get for thgeir efforts a second or third tier bowl game, despite having seat-filling performers such as MDJ, dorsett, kaaya and their senior TE. that group has to make up fro a fast and light defense that gets smacked around as the game progresses. real dave, at least the mases here on the new site are getting the picture that the more lamar miller runs, the better iit is for the dolphins. your man has certainly proven hisself to be among the better runners in the NFL. the broncos have a very decent rushing defense, so let's see how miami runs and how they stop a very good pass offense led by bronco face of all those commercials-UUGGGGHHHHHH!!

the shadow knows

fellers,

KC and denver are both at 7-3 i believe, which makes for another crucial against denver, who now may drop into the playoff mix after figuring on top of their division. the chieves have a tough schedule, but they seemto be pretty tough themselves, handing a loss on desparate seattle. denver, and @arizona ands @ pittsburgh- a very likely 10-6 finisher with a win over the dolphins, same with the broncos if they handle the dolphins next week at home. andthen all those teams in the AFC "central", the bottom team being 6-4. to get past one of them, a win against bawlmer imperative. gonna be a real wild wild card race. a NE win tonight and the patriots are a step closer to thye division crown.

Fzb3346

Tough loss for my Canes but I know now is only a matter of time we can go toe to toe with the big boys, FSU won because they had more talent...and a little luck.

Denver lost again today, if we can beat them next week ( can we do it?) ..we'll own the tie breaker ( hey is ok to dream right?)

Also the Browns lost today which also helps the Dolphins..

IMAWriter

Yes, ONLY thing that broke right for the Dolphins was the Browns loss. Seattle needed to beat KC. Hate that Denver lost. Now they will be madder than usual.

My Canes fought all night, and I'm very proud of how they played, DESPITE the piss poor strategy employed by the 2 gutless wonders, Al and Coley. Here Al goes for it on the 560 1st quarter, then goes close to the vest 2nd half.

Has anyone else noticed how Stacy Coley has dropped off this year? No significant returns, for one. The Canes ALWAYS get one on FSU, seems like. Also, just not be utilized. I wonder if there is a problem we don't know about?

As the canes were 95% certain of not being in the ACC Championship, why curl up in a ball 2nd half. FSU was not going to go away, they are a 2nd half team. Nothing to lose, go after them. I place this loss on some very bad luck, and the coaches. Not to mention NO REVIEW on the O'Leary catch and fumble, though that was close.

Canes MUST win the next 2, get a decent bowl.

If Al can't get them up again for a mediocre UVA team and a bad Pitt squad, I'm not sure he deserves to return. You just don't hang your team out to dry like he and Coley did.

Who would have thought D'Onofrio would not be the major topic after game 10?

IMAWriter

BTW, I'd bench Berrios for the rest of the year, except at practice, where they should have the jugs machine aimed at his package.

the shadow knows

IMAWriter,

one yards short of a first down and they go for a FG which turned out to be no good. i understand the concept of "points on the board", but them injuns were backpedaling. the missed PAT and that missed FG hurt UM in a big way. whatever bowl they go to will have a relatively easy time selling tickets, as there ain't a more dynamic football player than MDJ. according to the seminoles' broadcast team, he made a "remarkable" catch to go along with his pretty darn good rushing numbers. unfortunately for him, wisconsin's runner shed some rather poor tackling on the way to 408 yards, which might have been enough to pry the trophy away from the mallards' QB. jameis winston does not resemble his own self of last year-not even close. FSU is winning despite him, not because of him.

Fzb3346

Easy IMA...no time to panic my friend, the Canes are on the right track...we just need a little more talent specially on the defense and a kicker..

We be fine my amigo.

Denver losing doesn't bother me one bit, here's my thinking..if you wanna play with the big boys then you gotta learn how to beat them, sunday's game is another huge test for our young and up and coming team and our clueless coach, this is anther test for Joey...let us all hope he passes and proves me wrong..

Fzb3346

Heck of a game tonight..Patriots and Colt's, rooting for The Colt's..obviously.

Big Baby

Patriots are closer to the crown shadow with a win With games remaining against Detroit, Green Bay and Miami a win tonight will not assure them of anything however.

Big Baby

Denver losing shouldn't bother you FZB it should make you happy. 7 points against the Rams? We are going to be singing John Denver songs until the cows come home next week. Manning is TOAST just I said after the Superbowl. 1 and 2 seed is now wide open if we can beat those donkeys.

OC Dolphin

New England has to go to Green Bay in week 13. This after facing Detroit at home. I don't see them beating GB, and they may even lose to Detroit...then come the Dolphins.

Still think Miami goes: loss, win, win, loss, win, win for a 10-6. Don't be surprised if NE closes out with a 2-4. 3-3 more likely, but I would be surprised with them going 4-2.

Bottom line...any team in the AFC registering 9-7 is not making the playoffs this year. You may even have a 10-6 team missing it as well.

Account Deleted

Dolphins have to beat Baltimore to have any real hope of going 10-6. It's very unlikely MIA will beat Denver or New England on the road. I also agree with OC it looks unlikely that 9-7 makes the playoffs. But it is not impossible. Big game this week. If MIA can pull off the improbable and beat Denver the path the to the playoffs will be within sight.

Go Fish!!!

the shadow knows

citizens,

granted that the packers are lighting the scorboard up; however, the NE coach has a long history of incredible defensive game plans against the pass (please see the giants-bills SB for the most amazing pass defense these eyes have seen). granted that he has different personnel and that the game has tilted dramatically uin favor of throwing, but coach BB will come up with an adequate plus defense for GB. the packers won't score 35 against NE it says here.

Big Baby

Miami will beat Denver, New England and Baltimore. I said 7-1 to close not backing down now. Baltimore at home we win they aren't the same team. Miami is 5-2 right now in the AFC, Baltimore 3-4. Miami even with 10 wins will likely finish with an 8-4 conference record hopefully good enough to sneak in if my winning the division prediction doesn't work out.

Big Baby

shadow your favorite QB lol is going down this week expect a furious pass rush from Miami. Denver is having problems on the oline and Manning is throwing balloon balls getting his WR's creamed. I like that matchup right now yes I do. shadow I noticed you said you weren't a Dolphins fan (could tell from your post anyway) are the Bengals your favorite team or someone else?

Fzb3346

our next three games are at Broncos, at Jets, home for the Ravens and at NE..

two very tough games on the road and one at home, its not going to be easy at all, I'm almost thinking this is a must win this sunday...BB, I wish I could share your enthusiasm but I DO hope you are right.

Big Baby

It is likley a must win if we want to contend for the division title but not a must win to get the wildcard. shadow if you want to keep your favorite team a secret that's fine but it seems you like every team besides Miami most of the time talking up these inferior teams all the time.

Big Baby

You're right though we are still just 6-4.

Fzb3346

BB..shadow likes the Dolphins and USC..

beibol?...maybe the Brooklyn Dodgers..hehe

he hates basketball.

is that about right Shad?

OC Dolphin

I think shadow has a special place in his heart for the Chargers.

OC Dolphin

...and the Rams, but neither of the newer versions.

Fzb3346

boys..hold on to your hat's I'm about to say something that may surprise U.

I think Ross needs to keep Hickey around a little while longer even if it means keeping clueless Joe too...my reasoning is because Hickey has done a heck of a job and he needs more time to complete it.

Joe is a total incompetent asswipe but him and Hickey do seem to be getting along so it might be ok to keep him as opposed to getting into another another major overhaul.

and since Tannehill is finding his stride with Lazor then it could work..yeah I said it.

so for the record I'm ok with Joey staying on for one more year...I can't believe I just wrote that..

(the real) david in los angeles

until your posts about the clevland cavaliers involve shutting down the other team defensively, record number of assists, etc, then my prediction still holds true; they will win many regular season games with their offense, and in the playoffs their lack of high IQ players and non commitment to defense will prevent them from winning the east.
they aren't winning shit this year, and maybe next.
it takes more than scoring points.

Fzb3346

very, very surprised that our cheap ass beisbol owner was able to sign G Stanton to a 25 mil a year contract....hhhmm, is there any more money left for my boy Jose Fernandez?

OC Dolphin

david,

You don't have to sell me on the merits of defense. Switching sports for the sake of the notion, the Dolphins' defense is better this year than it was last year and remains the main reason I'm so (switching sports again) "Bullish" on the team. But the Bulls are not going anywhere without a healthy Rose. Indiana was once a very good team, defensively, but they lost their best defender (Stephenson) and are not going to stop the Cavs either. The Heat are okay, but just okay. So I guess what I"m saying is that I don't see anyone in the East stopping this Cavs. team...and they're only going to get better.

btw, I wouldn't put LeBron, Kevin Love, Varejao, or even backups: Marion and Mike Miller into the low basketball IQ club. Maybe Kyrie Irving, but that's just one guy.

Big Baby

FZ you have certainly changed your opinion in a big way. I agree continuity is good right now a lot of value in that I think. Those players like playing for him too something that is undervalued in todays NFL at times I think.

Fzb3346

BB..I'm agreeing very reluctantly on Joey because I think Hickey is a keeper and I want him around.

it looks like the Dolphins may win 9 or 10 games this year, I'm still hoping for the playoffs but is still a toss up in my book, we should be able to beat the Jets twice and the Vikings but the Ravens, Patriots and Broncos are very tough games and anything can happen.

Fzb3346

did any one see the game last night?..the Patriots made the Colts look like shit and the guy running the ball for them?

Jonas Gray originally signed as a free agent RB by Ireland, had an injured knee and played for a couple of other teams and now look at what he did, just in time for us..no matter we got the D this time around.

fack'em.

OC Dolphin

FZ,

If Joe Philbin were riding in a school bus filled with kindergarten children and the bus driver suffered a massive heart attack while driving, and rendering her incapacitated, only to have Joe Philbin dive into the driver's seat seconds before the bus were to go off a five thousand foot cliff to save the kiddies, you would -- "very reluctantly agree on Joey."

Big Baby

Hickey has done an incredible job this season. Fair share of Ireland contributors on this team but it seems he never would have gotten us to the next level. Hickey clearly has a plan and a vision that hopefully proves to be successful long term.

OC Dolphin

FZ,

Did you manage to get together with Woodcock at the UM game? I haven't spoken to him as I'm sure he's in deep, deep depression. I think he gets back to LA tomorrow.

OC Dolphin

If Hickey is indeed "tuned in" into what makes for a great football team these days he'll try to find a Rob Gronkowski type player.

The Patriots are just a good team without him.

Every great team seems to have one of these athletic monsters who can block, catch anything thrown their way and nearly impossible to bring down.

roid rage

Still trying to recover from that Canes game ugh...sorry,I couldn't connect with you Fzb but the place was a madhouse...just had to much going on in tailgate land...

Big Baby

Gronkowski will get hurt again. It's inevitable. Hopefully right before we play them or when the steroid cycle wears off.

the shadow knows

FZB,

although a graduate and fan of the USC teams of ages ago,
i can't root for them when they don't run the ball and look like every other "pistol" team in the country. uSC used to mean a solid running game- big and fast offensive lineman (anthony munoz the greatest ever) and tailbacks who could carry the ball 35-40 times/game (like marshall faulk did for the aztecs). that was a real long time ago. i can't stand basketball because traveling, carrying, 3 seconds,... are no longer called and it doesn't resemble basketball the way that the NFL of today doesn't resemble football. the dodgers-UGGHHHHHH!! since they parted ways with fernando, i have not rooted for them. last team i really rooted for was the padres when they had tony gwynn, RIP. for a short while in the early 70s i rooted for the giants when they had maddox, matthews, kingman, speier, montefusco,halicki, and the rest; but i got caught up in fernandomania. favorite in the NFL, after my boyhood love of the george allen rams, were the bengals of paul brown, starting with greg cook and virgil carter at QB before the young basketballer from augustana kenny anderson got developed by bill walsh. even after essex johnson got hurt the bengals were great, just had the misfortune of being in the same division as the steelers.

Jimbo

Gronkowski's unique skill at the TE reminds me of a former Charger TE who dominated in the 80's, Winslow.

Hickey solved some big problems in a short time to give this team a shot.

If the season were over today, Miami would be the 6th seed in the AFC. As long as the team WINS, they are in. Nothing worse than being close, losing & looking at the standing, hoping other teams lose more.

Anyone see a crack in the almighty Broncos armor? No team is perfect & anyone can be beat. Fins strengths on D plays into a possible upset in Denver. Broncos lost another RB. I'm thinking Miami stacks up good against a pass heavy team that can't find a healthy stud RB,,, like San Diego. Big gap in talent at WR & TE between Bronco's & Chargers though. Tough game but not impossible.

Big Baby

shadow thanks for the clarification on the conference record rules in the ACC. When you look at Duke and their schedule they really only played maybe one really tough game. They had what they call a cupcake schedule good for them if they win the coastal though. The fact that program is that relevant speaks to some people really doing impressive things over there.

Jimbo

shadow,
USC of old was a respected team and the running game seemed to be dominate every year. Top RB after top RB, very impressive. ND fan as kid & the Irish vs Trojan matchup was entertaining many times.

Dave Kingman!? man, that brings back memories.

Big Baby

Hoping my BC Eagles can pull the upset in Tallahassee this weekend. Not counting on it but BC has played spoiler many times in the past ask Notre Dame.

Big Baby

BC is also 6-4 in the difficult Atlantic a quick turnaround from a program that went 2-12 two seasons ago. Coach Spaziani seems for real.

Big Baby

2-10. BC lost to Clemson by 4 this year 17-13 and another close one to Colorado State or things might be better.

Jimbo

Harbaugh to Miami? Hold your horses, not so fast.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000428604/article/could-the-oakland-raiders-land-jim-harbaugh

Big Baby

Did I say Spaziani hah he was terrible. I meant Steve Addazio. I saw that Jimbo makes all the sense in the world he would be good for a young team with no experience with winning. He sure did turn a floundering 49ers franchise around.

Fzb3346

OC...I couldn't get together with Woody or Roig it was such a mad house..I got a couple of text messages but my phone had no reception, piece of shit piece of technology..

I still can't believe we lost to those moe- foes..

On the Hickey subject ..Dave Hyde had an article about him a few weeks back saying that Hickey has to be considered the teams MVP for this year and I think he is right, I bashed Ross to no end for "settling" for the 8th best choice for the GM but it sure looks he picked a good one or simply got lucky with the hire, either way I don't care he seems to know what his doing.


Jimbo

BB,
Harbaugh to the Raiders? Let's kick that around. Bad or Good? IMO it fits. Biggest reason? 2 minute small reasons:
1. Raiders Davis legacy of meddling with the GM & HC.
2. Harbaugh implodes & alienates his asst coaches, players. Track record.

Jimbo

I listed 2 bad reasons. will post later on the benefits of Harbaugh coaching the Black & Silver.

Fzb3346

Hey the people in Denver are screaming for Incognito..

Harbaugh to da Raiders?... Shit I wish he could come here instead, there is no comparison between him and clueless Joe.

SCREAMING FOR INCOGNITO!!!

Jimbo, they must really be desparate- the guy stinks!! as far as dave kingman, he was a pitcher at USC and one of the nastiest human beings ever. but, the guy hit uncatchable balls when he wasn't striking out. i went to one of the games where he hit three HRs at dodger stadium (for the mets). his other # hr game against the dodgers for the cubs got this reaction from lasorda about what he thought of kingman's "performance":

for you, my friend and memories of the incredibly great jim healy drivetime shows!!!

Jimbo

If the Bronco's line is decimated, Wake & Co should dominate. Manning is great when untouched, gets skiddish after pressue knocks him down. Incognito? Bronco's must have some issues up front.

Jimbo

Jimbo,

i posted the lasorda rants for you and the rest of the citizens to enjoy unfiltered; try to give them a listen!

the shadow knows

Jimbo,

richie incognito is slime deluxe. a team would have to be "auf tsuris"- (yiddish for in real trouble) to consider that big zhlub (slob) who even in today's no blocking, only pushing league, can't/won't be effective. peyton manning for years has been getting his passcatchers in good positions to compenstae for his now very weakened arm; if my friends here really believe brent grimes and rashard matthews are all-pro type defenders, the the dolphins hsould be picking off 2-3 of manning's throws in a dolphin victory. SI had the dolphins as tyhe last team in the AFC playoffs, which for our post-season starved group should be good news. as mentioned above, the browns losing really helped the dolphins; now it's time for a team that suddenly everyone (of the talking heads/media types) likes to go out and start winning these crucial games. and again, don't count two wins versus NYJ as in the bag yet, they consistently get up to play the locals.

roid rage

Dolphins do not have an easy road to the playoffs...especially considering the number of teams bunched up with similar or same records...they have to win 4 out of 6 for sure just to have a chance...it feels to me like Denver is a must win,because I'm worried about New England obviously...but I'm actually more concerned about beating the Jets twice than I am about the Ravens...in my mind it's a long shot but not an impossible one...anything less than 10-6 will be major disappointment...ugh the Lions and GB game will keep haunting me...

Big Baby

Dolphins in prime time next few weeks. Winning will only increase their profile and make the haters take note. Going to the game in ne next month told my patsy fan friend it will get flexed to a night game. Hope I wasnt too overconfident that would be awesome.

Big Baby

Our group glad to hear you support miami shadow you had me worried for awhile. Postseason success starved also.

Big Baby

You may have to start giving praise to tannehill soon. He is starting to show some real ability.

roid rage

BB,if we lose to Denver we will be in a very tight spot...doesn't anyone else see Denver as a must win? If we lose that game can you realistically see them winning 4 of the last 5? Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?

Big Baby

Fzb agrees with you roid. I dont see it that way but am fairly confident they win against what seems like a declining team.

roid rage

Yeah,I think they have a shot against Denver, no doubt...I'm more worried about other games...history tells us we don't beat the Jets twice and Pats are playing some of the best football in the NFL right now...they are not the same team we beat in the first game of the year...I don't know man...4 out of 6 feels like a tall task...it will not be easy...really hoping my 8-8 prediction doesn't come to pass...

OC Dolphin

The current line has Miami 7.5 point dogs and 50 points o/u. The home team generally gets 3 points, and Miami has averaged 4.5 points less scoring than Denver this year. There you have it.

OC Dolphin

Having said that, I do think Denver has been weakened due recent injuries. They are there for the taking.

Big Baby

Csn we start calling you oc Vegas?

Big Baby

Oc bettor??

OC Dolphin

If I had to pick...

Nov 23 @ Denver: if win/they lose the next. If loss/they win the next.
Mon, Dec 1 @ New York
Dec 7 vs Baltimore: tough win
Dec 14 @ New England: fouh-get-a-ba-dit
Dec 21 vs Minnesota: win
Dec 28 vs New York: convincing win

Big Baby

Denver hasn't lost a home game for almost a year. Only thing in their favor in my view.

Big Baby

No shot against ne oc? Disagree completely.

Jimbo

shadow, did check out the Lasorda rant. Entertaining.

I wouldn't guarantee a win in this era of NFL and wouldn't be so sure of a bad team rolling over & playing dead.

Denver has some recent issues, mostly the injury bug. Top 2 RB's are out, WR Sanders has concussion, TE J Thomas has ankle issue, O Line is getting thinned out by injury. Fins have had their fair share of players out.

If Miami loses to Denver, everyone will say "See, that what we expected" and if they beat the Donkey's its an added plus. Road win vs AFC team.

Miami lost 2 close games down the wire. Stafford & Rogers in desperate fashion. Manning is just as good or better at pulling out regular season games. Looking at it that way Denver will win on their last possession. MY theory is Miami lost 2 at the end, should win one at the end,,, odds are with us.

Jimbo

fellas,

Didn't I post about RB Jonas Gray when Fins took him as undrafted free agent???? yep, indeed. Hmmmm, Gillesee, Thomas, Thigpen.... over Gray. Gray wasn't some back up on Div 1 or Div 2 team, he was an explosive back at ND that blew out his knee late senior season....

I smell an Ireland ('flatulence, Le Trene) in guessing the wrong RB project.

Fins got something special in rookie RB D Williams. Youngster has just a little pop but very explosive & love his natural instincts to find open space.

Omar Kelly of Sun Sentinel made comments after the Buffalo game. He stated the obvious about how 4 of the 5 O linemen played well and RT Dallas Thomas had a terrible game against Mario Williams. His question was "Why isn't Billy Turner activated?". Turner has been recovering from turf toe since August. A healthy Turner can help the Albert-less O line.

Jimbo

Looking at Miami's remaining 6 opponents there is possibility to get 4 or 5 wins.

OC Dolphin

BB, we all know about Bill Belichick. You can bet he has already donned Mickey's Sorcerer's Apprentice outfit and is well into brewing some ghastly concoction that will turn our beloved Dolphins into a fishy version of gummy bears.

Big Baby

At least we dont look as bad as baltimore who released him more recently lol. You are right jumbo he Is a tough runner.

OC Dolphin

BB, I've met Jimbo. He's not quite jumbo sized:)

Man,you guys are extremely optimistic...it's almost as if you haven't watched the Phins seasons implode for years on end haha...

roid rage

I don't like that Denver has lost it's last 2 either...luckily they have a bunch of injuries...

I agree with OC...don't feel good about the Pats game at all...

Fzb3346

I'm assuming we are going to lose to the Broncos and the Patsies..

can we win the other four?..and finish 10-6???

I have seen this movie before so I'm very skeptical specially since Joey is in charge of the team but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one, maybe Joey has learned his lesson and can get the team ready to play..

let's go Dolphins !!!

Jimbo

Let's see, Obi? approval rating around 35-37% & promises to veto Keystone pipeline & grant amnesty to several million illegal immigrants. Vast majority of American public wants the opposite of what he threatens to do.

Jimbo

roid &

Denver lost 2 of last 3, the win against Raiders.

Fzb3346

Jimbo's ..Obi's strategy in immigration seems to be on getting the latino vote for the Dems for the next election...I think.

he wants to be known as the president that passed the immigration law..

I'm all for immigration reform but we need to secure the borders first...

Jimbo

FZB, Obi's strategy is spread socialism as quick as possible in the US. I encourage Obi to "help" his party like he "helps" solve VA, ACA, IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA, ISIS, Bergdahl trade issues.

Fzb3346

hey the Canes beat the swamp Lizards last night in college basketball..yeah boy.

fack the lizards..

Fzb3346

agree on that too Jimbo..asswipe socialist..

Jimbo

FZB, look at last mid term election, Obi "helped" his party. A Udall losing in Colorado? never thought I'd see that in my lifetime. Blue states turning red in Governor seats. Obi "helped" Putin & mother Russia be a world player despite being a shell of it's former economy & military.

Big Baby

I dont know oc I look at recent trends and miami has won the last two games. I think miami gives ne some matchup problems.

Big Baby,

i would really love the eagles of b.c. to knock florida state out of it. the sagarin computer that USA today uses has them ranked FIFTEENTH, which is where they belong after barely getting by some less than powerhouse teams all season. if they play another close contest against boston college, it would only verify what the sagarin computer says about them.

Big Baby

They may belong there but it's because the ACC is pretty weak. I am of the opinion that if you go undefeated or have a one loss season then you should be in the national title conversation. Can't remember if it was Penn State years ago (think so) who was undefeated and people were saying they weren't title worthy. Can't fault the players for the schedule the administators set up. Kids go undefeated in BCS they deserve a shot period. That said go BC!

Big Baby

Might have been the Kerry Collins Penn State squad I am thinking of but that is shooting from the hip no research.

Miss State still in the # 4 spot. That # 4 seed is going to be a nightmare selection for the committee. TCU, Ohio State, and Baylor can lay claim to it right now. This is what the playoff system has brought. More teams getting screwed.

I was wrong about the Canes. I said they had no shot they almost pulled the upset.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

the playoff system means more teams getting screwed? the ole shadow thought that this was going to be the end of bitching and moaning about the rankings!! as mentioned numerous times, i was content with the BCS system, and believe that if the computer programs were based on legitimate premises, the machines would do just fine. FSU being #15 according to sagarin just reflects a weak schedule and some very "fortunate" wins for them injuns. to quote (maybe paraphrase) the ole bear in addressing his troops before each season "you just worry about not losing and don't look at what the other teams are doing, because if you go undefeated you'll look around and see that no other team will be unbeaten". and that was when the schools were playing 9-10 game schedules. well, FSU can look around and see that besides marshall, no other team is undefeated at this point late in the season. if the bulldogs of miss state win out, methinks they belong in the mix. i can't understand why everyone is enamored with the mallards of oregon (aside from their QB being the best player in the country). their defense is sloppy, they are fast but light and weak and would be pushed around by any of the "heavyweights". and if not for a lame play went from a touchdown for utah into a TD for oregon, they might have been beaten by the utes who were completely dominating the game to that point. i find it very hard to cheer/root for "team nike". i hope the beavers beat them and/or they lose in the pac-? championship. enough already with those gaudy uniforms- PUUUUKKKE!
