Never honor rival George Diaz Orlando Sentinel I know the Dolphins are hurting to fill seats, but this reeks of a desperate ploy to snag a few Orange and Blue fans to blend in with the fading number of aqua jerseys in the stands. You never honor a rival on your home turf. And even though the Hurricanes don't have an on-campus stadium, Sun Life Stadium is as good as it gets. For South Florida, it should always be about the U. That obvious point has slipped by the pro team trying to suck up to legions of other fans.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It will be another season with an asterisk for the Florida Gators.The NCAA's Committee on Infractions yesterday denied president John Lombardi's request to reduce grants-in-aid for the football program in lieu of a one-year bowl ban this season.Under the Southeastern Conference's rules, the Gators also are prohibited from competing for a Southeastern Conference title, although their games will count in the conference standings. If Florida wins more conference games than any of the nine other schools, the title will go to the second-place team.

News item: Ravens coach John Harbaugh was fined $15,000 by the NFL for making physical contact with line judge Ron Marinucci during last Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. My take: Harbaugh said this week that the fine was "justified" and I agree with him, but I'd still like an honest explanation from the league as to how an entire officiating crew could have endorsed that ridiculous, game-changing "personal foul" call on Terrell Suggs. It's one thing for one capable official to miss something that does happen.

Indianapolis -- With four sophomores and one junior in their starting lineup, the Florida Gators were said to be too young to make a run in the Southeastern Conference this season, let alone accomplish a victory the magnitude of a national championship. In fact, Florida began the season unranked - picked by some to finish fifth in the SEC. What mattered most last night, though, was where Florida's season ended - on college basketball's grandest stage, with a confident, seemingly carefree performance that raised the Gators above all the rest.

ST. LOUIS -- A year ago, on a similar Sunday afternoon in a similar Midwestern domed arena, there was dancing and singing and jubilation. The Florida Gators had vanquished Villanova to reach the Final Four for the first time, and the midcourt scene came straight out of New Year's Eve. When it happened again yesterday, when the top-seeded Gators held off No. 3 seed Oregon, 85-77, in the Midwest Region final to earn a second consecutive trip to college basketball's...

ATLANTA // They turned down the guaranteed glamour and glitz of the NBA in favor of the possibility of winning a second consecutive national championship? a feat so rare and difficult that only one program has managed to accomplish it since thetournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985. The Florida Gators are one win away frombecoming the second. With its entire starting lineup intact from a year ago and playing in a rematch of last year's national championship game, Florida once again beat UCLA convincingly, this time a 76-66 victory last night that advanced the Gators to their second straight appearance in the national final.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - At the pulsing sound of the Florida State University war chant, the fans at the Course 701 bar whooped and hollered. It didn't matter that their beloved Seminoles hadn't yet suited up. It mattered even less that game time was six hours off. The University of Florida Gators, FSU's chief rival and nemesis, were in town. That's what mattered. And nothing - not the chilly weather, not the gloomy skies, not the presidential election in dispute here - would keep Seminole football fans from showing how they feel.

MIAMI - The Miami Hurricanes and Florida Gators are on track to meet Jan. 3 in a national championship showdown in the Rose Bowl. Thanks to a pair of Big 12 upsets over the weekend, Miami and Florida need only win out to lock up spots in Pasadena, Calif. The Hurricanes (10-0) and Gators (9-1) are poised to pull down the top two rankings, respectively, in the new BCS poll scheduled to come out tomorrow. If the Hurricanes win at Virginia Tech in their regular-season finale Saturday, and the Gators win at home against Tennessee on Saturday and in the Southeastern Conference championship in Atlanta the following weekend, the two teams will garner more than enough BCS points to play for the national title.
