First the good news, the Miami Hurricanes beat Duke 24-14. Phew, that was a relief. In a week when 5 of the top 10 teams lost, now the Canes have a chance to make it to the top 25. Coach Shannon is doing a great job coaching the Canes, who are improving every week. Next week the Canes will be victorius against North Carolina. We will not be denied! Go Canes!
Unfortunately, the Florida Gators did not do as well, losing to perennial rival Auburn at home in “The Swamp”, by a score of 20-17 on a list minute field goal by the Auburn Tigers. The Gators are now 4-1 for the season, thus ending their long, undefeated run.
Florida State was victorious, beating Alabama 22-14. Any loss for Alabama’s coach Nick Saban is a celebration for me. I think Nick Saban is directly responsible for the sad state of affairs with the Miami Dolphins.
Which leads me to today’s Dolphins loss to the Oakland Raiders 35-17. The Raider’s QB, Daunte Culpepper rushed for 3 TD’s, threw for another 2, and had a great game. This is the same Daunte Culpepper the Dolphins got rid off very unceremoniously after last season, only to get Trent Green in his place. Can you hear my heart breaking a little bit more each week? Maybe the Dolphin’s owners and coaches ought to allow the fans to get involved in the recruiting process?
Sorry about the tone of this post, I will not deny I ‘m a sore loser…
