I tell you what.. we'll keep managing the BK and the canes dropouts (that would be their football team) can come by and rob the place every few weeks.. Cool?

Glad we could work that out.

Rusty is a good quarterback. He will do much better this year and I agree on him throwing for 40 this year. As far as him going in the first round- I doubt it. Remember Colt Brennan of Hawaii? He smashed the record for touchdowns 2 years ago and took Hawaii to a Bowl Game. I dont know if he even got drafted! Smith will likely go in the 3rd round and can possibly work his way up as did some great quarterbacks but someone has to actually give him a chance and believe in him. We have an enormous amount of talent down here in SoFla. So once UF, FSU, and UM take whats theirs, theres still overlooked talent left to be shipped to USF, UCF, and FAU (Even FAMU and B-CU). As you can see over the past few years with the strenghtening of USF, UCF, and FAU's programs. In recent years I would give it to USF and UCF to absolutely smash UM!!! FAU could hang as well. But now with the new regime and two great QB's in Marve and Harris (along with his squad from the #1 high school team in the US)I expect Miami to regain its title as Quarterback U!

You don't even know if Colt Brennan was drafted? Your team hasn't played the Washington Redskins or you haven't watched any pre-season football. He's lit it up with precision passing every opportunity he's been given. Having said that, he wasn't taken until the 6th round. Largely due to the quality of teams he faced. A problem Smith will also be faced with.

Looks like Smith and FAU are living up to expectations. A future group of janitors, Home Depot employees, and security guards. Just hope that Harold Miner and Ted Ginn dont mind them working there
