National champeenship

Congrats to the Florida Gators on their big bowl win, and on becoming National Champs!
What strikes me is that there's a team a few hundred miles away, near Miami Gardens, who could be referred to as National Chumps!
We got it all here in Florida, don't we?

What the....?

I'm not sure what H Wayne is doing in this picture, exactly.  I can only assume that's he's telling Nick to kiss his....Wayne Huizenga speaks to the press


Some clever LSU alumae have created geauxtohellsaban.com as a tribute to the guy they also love to hate.
Loved the pictures submitted by readers.

More on the head coach

The papers have been making a big deal out of the fact that Randy Mueller has been left out of the hiring process, though he has the title of GM.  My impression is that while he is the GM, he is not part of the "leadership" of the organization.  H Wayne has a very structured business operation with him as the overall CEO, Bailey as the CEO of Dolphin Enterprises, and Weidemer as the President of the Dolphins.  Those are the executives, and they make the hiring decisions.
So, there's no surprise there, nor do I think there's a slight toward Mueller.
What I find more interesting is that a guy who is something like the "Executive VP of football operations" has been totally absent from the process.  Who is this person?  Why that would be one Don Shula.  Maybe you've heard of him?  Maybe he could be of assistance in hiring a coach?

Head coaching search

So, with all the candidates for head coach we've been hearing about, I wouldn't be surprised if we started seeing them at a local job fair looking for the next guy to run the team.


Taylor v Merriman

JT said that Shawne (is that pronounced Shawn - eeee ?) Merriman didn't deserve the defensive MVP honor because Merriman had been suspended for steroids early in the season.
This week, Merriman sent Taylor a gift - popcorn.  With a note to enjoy watching the playoffs at home.
Merriman also included some "Light's out" clothing (which we have to assume is modeled after the Incredible Hulk, and rips easily when the wearer gets suddenly big via steroids)
