Eagles are only conference finalist that Miami doesn’t play next year
 So the Miami Dolphins are trying to bounce back from a 6-10 clunker of a season and this is what happens? Three of the four teams in the NFL’s conference championship round are on Miami’s Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Cam Robinson on the sideline duting an divisional round game against the Pittsburgh

Dave George: Now Dolphins are even looking up at Jacksonville Jaguars
 The Miami Dolphins have been trying for years to be like the New England Patriots, reigning kings of the NFL and eternal potentates of the AFC East, when it’s a more realistic goal that is within reach. Resolve first to reach the level of the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that after nearly a quarter century in operation still sounds...

Dave George: Erik Spoelstra’s Heat overachieving at halfway point
 Halfway through the Miami Heat season, and they continue to amaze. What, you don’t think 24-17 is fairly spectacular in a league where the true championship contenders don’t really get cooking until the playoffs? Can’t argue too vehemently, since that’s the overriding theme of every NBA season. Still, just a little...

Dave George: Intrigue surrounds PyeongChang Games
 The PyeongChang Winter Olympics are a month away and the whole, two-week spectacle is taking place closer to the DMZ than West Palm Beach is to Miami. What, in this age of reason, could go wrong? The most optimistic answer to that one is to say that the planet kept right on spinning the last time South Korea staged an Olympics, which just...

Mullen and Gators need to join SEC’s parade of true freshman quarterbacks
 If Dan Mullen doesn’t start Emory Jones at quarterback next season, the Florida Gators hired the wrong coach. That’s because freshmen are all the rage in college football these days. No more waiting around to get the system completely

Dave George: Jon Gruden’s splashy rehire by Oakland Raiders no guarantee of success
 Seeing Jon Gruden back in the NFL, a major coup for the Oakland Raiders, has me wondering again. What is the surest solution for any team looking to shake off the doldrums and make a serious run at the Super Bowl? And, to go along with that, why didn’t it work for the Miami Dolphins when they got their last splashy hire, Nick Saban?...

Dave George: All Lamar Jackson needs from NFL is a chance
 There are so many ways to categorize the career of Lamar Jackson, who announced Friday he is leaving Louisville as a junior to enter the 2018 NFL draft. When he won the 2016 Heisman Trophy, Jackson was labeled as a Palm Beach County legend because he was a star at Boynton Beach High School and played at Santaluces before that. Then Broward...

Dave George: Frustrated Fins fan? Try being a Browns backer
 Still haven’t come up with a New Year’s resolution? Consider this. “Having been burned repeatedly by the Miami Dolphins, and in recognition of the fact that the team’s newly announced plan for 2018 is based once more on trying harder to do stuff better, I resolve to take one season off from this emotional and psychological...

Dave George: Lane Kiffin remains just a phone call away from new job
 Just when you think it’s safe to assume that Lane Kiffin will be around to coach the Florida Atlantic Owls in 2018, another job comes open and everybody starts thinking about where and when the Lane Train’s next stop might be. This time it’s Arizona on the hunt after firing Rich Rodriguez on Tuesday night over a sexual harassment...

$10 million sure didn’t buy Dolphins much with Jay Cutler
   It was a nice round number back in August when Jay Cutler signed for $10 million to provide the Miami Dolphins with one season
            of competent quarterbacking. Easy to remember. Fairly easy to swallow, since it was Stephen Ross’ money and not ours, and since Ryan Tannehill shockingly
            was out of the season...

Does anybody out there, including Nebraska, want a piece of UCF now?
 Scott Frost won’t be scheduling UCF any time soon. Now that he’s the coach at Nebraska, Frost is like everyone else at a Power Five school. It makes no sense for him to tangle
            with the Knights. ATLANTA – Kam Martin of the Auburn Tigers is tackled by the UCF Knights in the second half during the Chick-fil-A Peach...

Canes’ season ends on 3-game losing streak but Richt isn’t finished
 Miami’s bounceback season got pushed back into the Hurricanes’ faces Saturday night. Three straight losses is no way to finish a monster run, even if the last of them comes in the Orange Bowl and against the No. 6 team in the nation, Wisconsin. *Orange Bowl Photo gallery Clanging a field goal off the upright from 24 yards is no...

Miami needs Turnover Chain, home turf to beat Wisconsin in Orange Bowl
 To be left just outside the College Football Playoff field is a vicious thing. It happened to Miami and Wisconsin this year, which potentially makes this Saturday night Orange Bowl match between the two as bittersweet and wobbly as any New Year’s countdown could be. The Hurricanes are particularly worrisome, coming off a 38-3 mauling...

Rosier ready for immediate, future challenges as Miami’s quarterback
 Malik Rosier, who has won 11 of 13 career starts as Miami’s quarterback, leads the Hurricanes against Wisconsin in the Orange Bowl Saturday night. Good stuff, right? Not good enough for many fans who were over the moon about Miami’s 10-0 start and are now seeking someone to blame for those gruesome losses to Pittsburgh and Clemson...

Dave George: Adam Gase’s reputation takes hit with trying season
 You know the wonders we all wanted rookie head coach Adam Gase to work last year with Ryan Tannehill, the promising quarterback with several levels of development still to come? Well, Sean McVay, the youngest head coach in the NFL, is making it happen with Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams. Of course, any player who goes No. 1 overall in...
