305IVE WE NEVER WON AN ACC CHAMPIONSHIP. TITLE CONTENDERS WITH ANOTHER COACHES PLAYERS, AND YOUR #1 RATED RECRUITING CLASS SET BACK THE UM PROGRAM DRASTICALLY. THAT RECRUITING CLASS HAS FAILED TO PRODUCE ANYTHING WE AS FANS CAN GRAB ONTO AND SAY WITH ANY CERTAINTY, "WE'RE BACK!!!" QUIT BEING A SHANNON APOLOGIST AND REALIZE THAT HE IS A DC AND NOTHING ELSE. THAT'S WHY NO ONE IS BEATING DOWN HIS DOOR FOR A HEAD COACHING POSITION!!! FOR GOD'S SAKE GET OFF OF RANDY'S BAND WAGON. IT WENT OFF A CLIFF DURING HIS SECOND YEAR, AND JUST KEPT DETEORATING UNTIL THE POWERS THAT BE FINALLY SAW IT IN THE ABYSS THAT IT WAS, AND MADE THE CHANGE. ANY ONE WHO SEES IT DIFFERENTLY IS EITHER WEARING BLINDERS, OR HAVE FALLEN INTO THE OLD CONSPIRACY THEORY PSYCHO BABBLE!!! WAKE UP!!!

CAN WE JUST START THE SEASON ALREADY. HOCKEY SUCKS, THE NBA'S POST SEASON TAKES AS LONG AS ITS' REGULAR SEASON, AND BASEBALL IS JUST SO OUT OF TOUCH WITH ITS' FAN BASE THAT IT MAKES ME SICK. JUST START THE F'ING SEASON NOW, SO THAT I CAN BE HAPPY AGAIN. QUIT BITCHIN' ABOUT THE TRANSFERS, IT HAPPENS EVERY YEAR, IT'S JUST NOT MADE A BIG DEAL OUT OF, UNLESS THERE'S A NEW COACH OR A SLOW DAY IN THE NEWS ROOM. WE'LL BE FINE AND THE PLAYERS WHO ARE LEAVING SHOULD BE WISHED THE BEST, AND IT GIVES A CHANCE TO THOSE PLAYERS WHO WANT TO BE HERE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE.

BIG PLAY THREAT! TED GINN JR.? I'VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU. HE MADE 2 MORE BIG PLAYS THAN I DID IN HIS 3 YEARS WITH THE DOLPHINS. HE WAS AS USEFUL AS TITS ON A NUN. I CAN'T STAND PEOPLE WHO DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE. THIS DRAFT CLASS IS AVERAGE AT BEST. IRELAND, SPARANO AND HENNE SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR STEALING. EVERYTIME THEY CASH A CHECK THEY ARE ROBBING THE DOLPHIN FANS OF HOPE, FAITH AND THE BELIEF THAT THIS YEAR IS GOING TO SOMEHOW BE DIFFERENT. WE'RE TOLD OVER AND OVER THAT THE FOOTBALL MINDS KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE DOING THAN THE FANS. THAT'S WHAT THEY GET PAID TO DO. NOT THESE FOOTBALL MINDS. YOU CAN THROW THE UNTOUCHABLE BILL PARCELLS IN THE MIX TOO. HIS DRAFTS WERE MEDIOCRE AS WELL AND HE GOT THE HELL OUT OF TOWN BEFORE HIS LEGACY TOOK A BIGGER HIT THAN ANY OF HIS DEFENSIVE PICKS EVER DELIVERED. THE FANS SCREAM FOR POSITION PICKS THAT ARE AN OBVIOUS NEED, AND WE'RE TOLD TO WAIT, THAT THEY'RE COMING. WELL TO QUOTE JUDGE SMAILS IN CADDYSHACK, "WE'RE WAITNG!!"
A CENTER WHO HAS TROUBLE GETTING THE BALL TO A QB WHO HAS TROUBLE THROWING IT DOWNFIELD TO A DRAFT PICK WHOSE GAME IS PRIMARILY DOWNFIELD RECEIVING. A RUNNING BACK WHO ADMITS TO NOT BEING WHAT YOU'D CALL A TRACK STAR AND A PARTNER IN THE BACKFIELD WHO IS BEING LOOKED AT AS SOMEONE WHO WILL BLOCK FOR SAID SLOW RUNNING BACK ALBEIT THE QUICKER OF THE TWO. AND LASTLY A CB WILL WOULD RATHER JUST AS SOON KILL YA THAN LET YOU BEAT HIM DOWNFIELD. AH....THE DOLPHINS BRAIN TRUST IN THE WAR ROOM OF A TYPICAL NFL DRAFT WEEKEND. FIRST JIM MANDICH PASSES AWAY THIS WEEK AND NOW THE POWERS THAT BE FOR THE DOLPHINS ARE TRYING TO KILL THE REST OF US!!!
INTERESTING, ISN'T IT? THE BIGGEST ANNOUNCEMENT OF THIS YOUNG MANS FOOTBALL LIFE, AND HE MAKES IT AT THE CONCLUSION OF A BASKETBALL GAME. I HEAR THE GATORS ARE LOOKING FOR A GOOD POWER FORWARD, SO MAYBE THAT'S WHAT HE'S LOOKING AT. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT KID. HE WON'T BE MISSED AT THE U,AND WON'T BE REMEMBERED AT FLORIDA.

ARTY, YOU ARE RIGHT TO FEEL THE WAY YOU DO. THEY SHOULD BRING HIM BACK AND YET THEY STILL WILL NOT. I JUST WISH THE POWERS THAT BE WOULD REMEMBER PART OF WHAT THE PAST BROUGHT US WAS 5 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 20 YEARS, AND CHANCES AT 3 OTHERS. WE HAVEN'T BEEN RELEVANT SINCE THEN, AND WILL NOT BE UNTIL WE'VE INJECTED SOME OF THE OLD SCHOOL "NOT IN OUR HOUSE OR YOURS" MENTALITY OF THE PAST. NO ONE FEARS US ANYMORE AND THAT IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO GET BACK. BRINGING IN SOME OF THE PIECES OF THE PAST TO COMPLEMENT THE NEW REGIME MIGHT BE JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED. BUT ALAS, DOCTOR SHALALA HAS ORDERED THAT WE LANGUISH IN MEDIOCRITY, AND GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP. I WISH THAT MORE PEOPLE WOULD ADMIT THAT WE MAY HAVE HATED THE BULLYS IN OUR LIVES, BUT WE SURE HAD RESPECT FOR WHAT THEY COULD DO TO US. NO ONE IS AFRAID OF THE U, BECAUSE THE U DOESN'T BULLY ANYONE ANYMORE. BRING BACK SOLY AND YOU BRING BACK SOME OF THE EDGE WE HAD GOING INTO EVERY GAME.

NATIONAL CHAMPS 2011? NO!!! 2012? NO!!! BUT RETURNING TO A LEVEL OF RESPECTABILITY? ABSO..FING...LUTELY!!! PEOPLE, AS FAR AS GRUDEN COMING FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS AND THEN BOLTING FOR THE NFL, SO WHAT. I'D RATHER HAVE 3 YEARS OF GRUDEN THAN 3 MORE DAYS OF RANDY, OR MOST OF THE POTENTIAL CANDIDATES LISTED BY MANNY! IF GRUDEN CAN'T BE LANDED, THEN PLEASE DON'T LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT AN OFFENSIVE MIND LIKE MARK RICHT CAN DO!! HE'S NOT A RETREAD. I LIVE HERE IN GEORGIA, AND BELIEVE ME THEY WOULD HATE TO SEE HIM GO! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIM, TOMMY TUBBERVILLE OR GARY TRESTMAN BE THE COACH TO MAKE MIAMI RELEVANT AGAIN!!! THEY ALL HAVE TIES TO THE LOCAL AREA, AND CAN BRING BACK THE "SWAGGER" TO THE U THAT EVERYONE MISSES, AS THEY WERE ALL A PART OF IT!!! THIS TEAM HAS TALENT BY THE BUTT LOAD, BUT NOONE T0 DEVELOP IT. SHANNON AND WHIPPLE COULDN'T AGREE ON WHAT KIND OF OFFENSE THEY HAD, AND THE RESULT WAS JUST WHAT WE SAW! CONFUSION, INEPT PLAY, POOR CLOCK MANAGEMENT, BAD CLOCK MANAGEMENT AND TERRIBLE DECISION MAKING. ALL THREE OF THESE CANDIDATES ARE OFFENSIVE GENIUSES, WHO DON'T HAVE THOSE ISSUES WITH THEIR TEAMS. 1.BUTCH DAVIS: BIGGER PIPE DREAM THAN GRUDEN 2.PATTERSON AND PETERSON: CHEWED UP AND SPIT OUT HERE. 3.MULLIN: DOWN YEAR FOR SEC, AUBURN NOT WITHSTANDING. 4.LEAVITT AND LEACH? REALLY? BETTER GET A PSYCHIATRIST TO MONITOR THE COACHING STAFF AND A FEW EXTRA SETS OF HANDCUFFS, AS WELL. 5.EDSALL: NOT SOLD ON HIM. BIG EAST IS TERRIBLE AND IF MIAMI WAS STILL THERE WE WOULDN'T BE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION.

JUST A COUPLE OF THOUGHTS. 1. ED, LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH. 2. ANTHONY, YOU ARE AN ASTUTE AND ENGAGING BLOGGER. 3. MANNY, YOU ARE INSIGHTFUL, THOUGH NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE IN YOUR ANALYSIS. NOW FOR THE BUSINESS AT HAND. WTF WAS THAT ABORTION OF A GAME YESTERDAY. IF THAT IS AS GOOD AS WE CAN DO AGAINST A RANKED OPPONENT, HOW IS IT NOT OBVIOUS TO ANYONE THAT A CHANGE IS NEEDED!!! SHALALA, SHANNON, WHIPPLE, THE TRAINER, BALL BOYS, THE BUS DRIVERS. EVERYONE. BLOW UP THIS CRUMBLING STRUCTURE, AND REBUILD WITH A FOUNDATION THAT IS PROVEN AND SOLID. I DON'T CARE IF SHANNON IS BLACK, WHITE, GREEN OR BLUE, HE CAN'T GET IT DONE. MEDIOCRITY IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, AND WHAT'S WORSE, I DON'T KNOW THAT WE'VE EVEN REACHED A LEVEL OF MEDIOCRITY! CAN SOMEBODY INQUIRE ABOUT THE INTEREST OF A MARK RICHT, MARIO CRISTOBAL OR ONE OF A SLEW OF FORMER HURRICANE PLAYER/COACHES IN COMING BACK HOME AND FIXING THIS BROKEN HOUSE, BEFORE THERE'S NOTHING LEFT TO EVEN WORK WITH!!!
