You got a quarterback or not? Or are you not quite sure? These questions define the NFL offseason.

Teams that have quarterbacks are able to go about the rest of their business in relative peace, sure that the biggest roster question is taken care of, and able to attack the other questions with the confidence that certainly inspires. The Colts have a ton of work to do, sure, but they know what they have at the most important spot.

Fans would love it. The coaches would hate it.

A few of the many college football bowl game projections have the Georgia Bulldogs (7-5) playing the Miami Hurricanes (8-4). If that were to come to fruition, it would be the first time Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt would face his old program. He was fired from Georgia after the 2015 season following 15 seasons.

It would also be interesting since Richt recruited most of the current players on Georgia’s team, including freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. They used to be breakfast buddies:

On his weekly Monday appearance on the Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM in Miami, Richt addressed the possibility of facing the ‘Dawgs.

“I wouldn’t doubt that somebody would try and get that match-up. I don’t know. It’s hard to say,” Richt said. “I don’t know where we’re going to go for this bowl game, but I think we’ve got ourselves set up for a really good one. I think there’s a chance that we play a ranked opponent, or at least a very quality opponent. I think people across America will be very interested in the match-up we play in, and hopefully we can finish with a victory and get ourselves ranked.”

Richt didn’t mention facing the Bulldogs again in the rest of the interview. Instead, he talked about how great it would be to play in the Russell Athletic Bowl, located in Orlando, against a Big12 team. But more than anything, Richt said he wants to finish the season with a victory, get ranked and show that the future of Miami football looks bright.

The Miami Hurricanes have done everything possible in November to elevate their bowl status, here so fans this year might actually be able to hop in a car and travel to a postseason game.

But then again, cialis maybe not.

Despite the uncertainty of bowl season, one thing of which Canes fans can be confident: They likely won’t be headed to Shreveport, Louisiana, for the Camping World Independence Bowl; or to El Paso, Texas, again for the Sun Bowl.



He didn’t touch the ball much — just five carries for 35 yards in the opener against an FCS team, symptoms and two carries for nine yards last week against Duke — but Mark Richt feels Travis Homer had a strong debut.

“Kickoff return, order we had five or six true freshmen on that team as starters, and a bunch of freshmen covering kicks,” Richt said. “Homer was one of the best ones on the team, period, regardless of whether he’s a freshman or not. Just very fast and athletic and cares enough to get somebody on the ground. It’s fun to see a kid do that and get some value out of that first season.”

Homer, a true freshman from West Palm Beach’s Oxbridge Academy, made several outstanding tackles, but his future is at running back. Especially if Joe Yearby follows through with his plans to enter the NFL draft, Homer will be counted on next season.

Like all returning players, Homer will try to impress coaches during bowl practices. But Richt, who said he’ll begin bowl practices after final exams are over (Dec. 8-14), won’t give them as many opportunities. He feels that’s a good thing.

Al Golden, in the last few years, often referred to bowl practices as a much-needed opportunity for his team to get better. Richt, in this season where he’s played so many freshmen, will give them a break.

“Usually you play a bunch of freshmen at that time, you practice [with] a bunch of freshmen and develop those guys,” Richt said, chuckling, on his weekly coach’s show. “Our guys have been practicing and playing. We don’t have a bunch of extra guys. They’ve all been playing, they’ve all been practicing, almost every one of them.”

Miami opened as a 1-point underdog at Notre Dame, no rx according to odds posted Sunday morning by VegasInsider.

But as of 1:30 p.m. Sunday, cialis that line was even.

So the oddsmakers seemingly can’t decide whether Miami (4-3, viagra dosage 1-3 ACC) should be favored on the road after losing three straight games, or if Notre Dame (2-5) should be a home favorite after a bye and two losses in a row.

The way both teams have performed has taken some of the luster off the reboot of one of the best rivalries of the 1980s, one which inspired an ESPN “30 for 30” documentary to air after the season.

The Hurricanes’ injury troubles have exposed its lack of depth on defense, and an inability to protect quarterback Brad Kaaya has stifled an offense many thought would be potent. Miami hopes to get several defensive players back, including standout end Chad Thomas (upper body).
