Weekend Football: Make a Statement
Last weekend proved a harsh bit or reality to Dolphin's fans. We lost to a friggin' winless team! It wasn't quite the upset that our win against the Pats were, but damn it must not do much for morale, one point difference or not. Things were brighter on the college level. The Canes picked up an expected, and much needed win against UCF, while FIU continued to surprise everyone with their three game winning streak. What's the out look for this week? With these volatile seasons who knows? Only God and Destiny, the lesbian X-Men villain who can look into the future, know for sure.
Baltimore Ravens @ Miami Dolphins, Sunday 1pm on CBS4
This match up is heated, since Cam Cameron, the Dolphin's worst coach ever, now sits on the sidelines as the Raven's offensive coordinator. A win would be like bumping into your ex with a Supermodel who works part time as a literary professor at Yale on your arm, while your ex is with Joe the Plumber. The Raven's have the best defense in the league, but they're on a loosing streak. No game this season will be easy, and this one isn't an exception.
Miami Hurricanes @ Duke Blue Devils, 3:30 pm on ESPNU
The Canes desperately need their first ACC win, and with star running back Javarris James back in action they stand as good of chance as any of getting it.
FIU Golden Panthers @ Troy Trojans, 7:00 pm on ESPN Regional TV
As far as FIU games go, this one is huge. Hell, it might be one of the most important games in team history. FIU is currently undefeated in the Sun Belt conference, but the Trojans are too. Troy has been favored to proudly wear the Sun Belt championship across their waist at the end of the season, that was until FIU went on a three game streak. Troy's starting QB went out with an injury last week, but a win by FIU would be something of a shock, and a major statement.
