I thought Heather Cox's line of questioning was odd, but not out of line. Still, Winston did as he should have. And folks calling for ESPN to issue an apology is just laughable.

Haha, OSU. They had a huge winning streak but none of those really came against great opponents, so this loss isn't terribly surprising. Now this sets up FSU against Auburn. Finally the national championship game has a team that I can root for, although it doesn't matter because the team I am pulling for is gonna get wrecked.


Wait do you think FSU is gonna get wrecked? Maybe this is the fan in me, but I wouldn't necessarily write them off.

Auburn is a one dimensional team. They can get tricky and they have "fate" on their side, but they're still one dimensional, with a terrible defense. FSU has an amazing defense and are good with stopping running games.

However, I can see how you would say that. The Noles always start out kind of bad, but then work up a rhythm and then become unstoppable. Benjamin always drops the first 3 passes thrown to him. But after that he catches every single one. Jameis is an amazing quarterback, but I think pressure gets to him. Once he calms down and relaxes, he's amazing.

It's gonna be a close game imo. Unfortunately it's on January 6th which is the day I have to drive 10 hours back up to college so I'll miss watching it with anybody. :(

But yeah OSU is overrated. I knew they were gonna lose last night. They don't play anyone decent and they were begging for a loss. If we played them we would have murdered them.

Yeah, the offensive line makes it so difficult to evaluate how good Tannehill is. I know I rail against the play of the offensive line a lot, but it's because it's doubly frustrating in that not only will we lose games because of it, but also having a young quarterback pressured and hurried on nearly every play obviously isn't going to help his growth. Couple that with a below-average receiving corps and a dreadful running game, and it's as if the Dolphins are doing everything in their power to screw with Tannehill's development. Our tight end Charles Clay is the only really good thing Tannehill has going for him.

One of my nightmare scenarios is Miami sneaking into the playoffs and GM Jeff Ireland not getting fired as a result. He is a terrible evaluator of talent. We need him out as soon as possible.


I totally agree. We really need a better O-line so we can see what Tanny is made of.

Lol no. FSU is going to win by, like, three touchdowns, is what I'm saying.

Great day for soccer today. Not sure who I want to win tomorrow, Arselol or Everofl.


Pipe down.

Great result. 1-1 draw was pretty much the best result I could've expected. Both teams gained the least amount of points I wanted them to, no change in goal difference, and neither could keep a clean sheet. Great week to be a Liverpool fan (apart from Gerrard's injury).

Dolphins' offensive line has played well for three consecutive games. I really do not understand it at all. Also, Charles Clay was your boy.

Yeah Tanny did a pretty good job yesterday. The last play by the Steeler's made me angry. I feel like they are not allowed to do that. :/

Man, Stephen Ross and his bizarre loyalty to Jeff Ireland. Ross's claim that he's all about winning just rings hollow now. He deserves to continue to have that stadium half-empty every home game.

Haha. Those desperation lateral plays are sometimes very spooky. It's like waiting for a hail mary pass, except it takes sooo long.

This is the best I've seen us play in... forever.

And to think, the Hodgson era was a mere two years ago.

ALL HAIL BRENDAN!!
