UM MUST HAVE A REALLY,REALLY BAD DEFENSE!!! mister duke johnson: avging 10+ yds/carry joseph yearby: avging over 7 yds/carry philip dorsett: avging 34+yds/catch and they be losing games? a big chance to get back in the hunt in the much weaker half of the ACC with a win at va tech; yes, it can be done since ga tech has spit out the bit after beating the canes.

Tom, i would be really uncomfortable luring people away from the random evidence, unless (which may be coming shortly) mr.cote decides that his blog's time has ended. i am grateful that we are here, and i believe that FZB ut this blog's address on greg cote's site right when it started. given e-mail addresses i would be happy to solicit, but can't do it on the former blog.

Tom, count the ole shadow in for a few shekels; so "boss" to be back with the guys. speaking of "boss", how about this surfin' instrumental from a group from norwalk, california (hence the record label "downey"!!(neighbor village) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsDEw4O9J8I&list=RDVsDEw4O9J8I#t=0 never a more garage sound than this-every musical cliche in the books!!

FZB, as pointed out by one of the commenters, the drumming was done by marvin gaye before he started singing, so how's about what methinks is the best of his early stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiK4hBaf9J4

FZB, a minor hit nationwide, but a gem from the summer of 63, when i was in new york groovin' to WMCA, home of "the good guys"; i don't know if i would choose sports over music if i had to make a choice. having both is great!! how about another great tune from 63, by one of your homeboys!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X095j0-rLTw

Jimbo, the word "community" gets used a lot, but OC applying it here is justified. we've been together a long time. thanks for the kind thoughts and wishing you all the best- it is a gas to be back with the fellers. and speaking of "fellers", how about this ditty from 1963- a bunch of filipino kids and their father, methinks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_qVq0lm_Ao

FZB, wouldn't ever invite the 3-4 people on the old blog to jump ship on greg cote. the poor guy must be heartbroken that his once large audience has dwindled to near nothingness. writing a thread that gets no bites- a sorry state of affairs. in the meantime, i am thrilled to be exchanging pleasnatries and ideas with the "old gang".

OC Dolphin, methinks that this thread alone has had more posts than our former host has had since the format change. he had two yesterday on a dolphin game day!! very sad that our former refuge is dying a slow death. but "it is a good thing you have done, OC, a very good thing"- borrowed from one of the twilight zone's greatest episodes: billy mumy as anthony fremont in "it's a good life".

Big Baby, the dolphins are in a group of AFC teams that are 3-3. upcoming are games against detroit, bawlmer,san diego, denver,new england and even without c.j. spiller, a bills team that always gives them problems and plays them very well. throw in two with the jets- as bad a s they are they are competitive versus the dolphins- and four more losses are possible unless they go a tear. they really need to defeat the chargers and ravens if they wanna be playing in the playoffs, as 9-7 would only be good if tied a team they have beaten. the texans play in a sorry divison and they may come out of it at 10-6, which methinks will be better/equal to the dolphin record. at least they get the jaguars coming up- red hot after their first win!!! denver and the cowboys/eagles seem to be the best teams at the moment. dolphins have a keen interst in tonight's game, as one of the two, or maybe both, will be in the playoff picture nearing the end of the season.

TEDDY DUPAY WORKS OUT FOR THE HEAT!!!! i have long considered that the gambling addicted teddy dupay missed shows against the spartans in the championship game to pay off on debts. yes, his shots were not airballs and were close, but the ole conspiracy theorist believes he threw that game. granted the fellas from flint were a very good college team and were on a vendetta of sorts to win, but all of teddy dupay's missed shots were way out of character for him. i thought he was a good point guard, but felt very strange watching one rattler after another leave his hands.

Baby Big, gave your moniker the european business treatment, like "patek phillipe", for a change. dolphins were handed the game by the bears-see above post. who but lunatics pass on 3rd and very short when you have a capable runner like forte? a team that can't get a yard running in the middle of the field doesn't deserve to win, and they didn't. chicagoplayed the worst game of any of miami's opponents this season. #17 rolled out and did have a very impressive game.

Big Baby, he bears lost the game early on today- passing on 3rd and 1 the first time they had the ball, and 3rd and 2 the next time. even with a missed FG, the dolphins were actually controlling the game.

OC Dolphin, agreed with Tom that interference could have been called on both ND players; they were run blocking downfield on a pass play; iu am not one who believes that flags (football) or foul calls or travelling shouldn't decide basketball games. remember the travelling that wasn't called on chris webber before he called the TO that michigan didn't have? had michigan gotten a basket to beat NC, the world would be moaning that the tar heels got jobbed by the refs. when calls are really obvious, as in last night's game, it is no problem. when cheap calls, homer calls, or as chickie baby would say, "ticky-tak" fouls, decide a contest= problematic. Tom has a nice coondog, and i agree with him that ND looked like the better team.

FZB, i listened to the end of the FSU/ND game, and haven't seen (as of now) the flag that saved the seminoles. methinks that ND was a better team, but controlling the game doesn't win- more points does. the irish kicker had a beeline for kicking the ball straight over the goalposts- i theought the ball had to be between the posts. well, anyway FSU is not nearly as good as last year, and when it is down to the last four, alabama will certainly be there. amari cooper is a fantastic passcatcher who might be the best player in the country. not a big fan of saban/kiffin, but they play football the old-fashioned way-run and defend.

FZB, the alligators are so bad this season-a delight to UM fans. their coach is this close to getting canned mid-season, which doesn't happen much in college (except for lane kiffin at SC). you gotta be really bad to get the axe mid-season in college. well, GT lost and the canes, with a win over UNC (not so easy) are back in the ACC hunt even though they are a pretty sorry bunch.

citizens, the bears are gonna be too much for the locals. jimbo is correct that miami's mini defensive backfield isn't gonna be able to handle brandon marshall and alshon jeffery.

Tom, i don't know about the percy harvin commotion, but jameis winston is a total mess. can't react or think on the run; ND should be ahead by 21 points but FSU is holding on. in the meantime, the canes are gonna be a beneficiary of a tar heel win over GT, which looks like it is gonna happen. clemson is probably the best team in the ACC, but they lost their first game with mistake after mistake. KSU also self-destructed against auburn, or the'd be in the top 10 with a 99 year old coach!!

out for three days again... combination of holiday/Sabbath; will be back for saturday night ND/FSU; the seminoles are not nearly last year's quality and their QB is in trouble with every move he makes. wouldn't be surprised if the irish won the game- pick 'em probably according to the wise guys.

FZB, i do make an occasional post now that OC is in business. i feel sorry that our former home is now deserted and i wouldn't want to take the three or four "newbies" that post there away. it is a real shame that we "had to leave", but methinks that the old site is running on fumes and probably will die a slow death with 3 posts on a canes or dolphin game day. wouldn't be chivalrous to "stick the fork" on greg cote's blog. didn't you already mention OC's blog over there?

FZB, give philbin a chance and he'll let blake bortles dismantle the dolphin defense, even with the worst team in the nfl, along with the raiders. @detroit tannehill is gonna feel pressure galore, and the dolphins/jets games are not cakewalks, as rex ryan amps up the defense to befuddle #17. as much as we hate to admit same, especially those who picked the dolphins at 9-7 or better, 8-8 is a REAL POSSIBILITY/PROBABILITY and will hasten the departure of the clueless/oblivious one. not being able to beat the bills or jets in the final games and get into the playoffs put philbin and co. on the big hotseat this year and his "tuchus" is about to catch fire. moreno out only means that lamar miller, fave of dave, will get the ball a few times until the braindead trust decides to go pass crazy with a QB who throws really bad INTs (see first half of last game). a major surprise in chicago and the dolphins are somewhat back in the hunt, whereas a loss to the bears and you can start lighting the candles over the casket.
