UF's Josh Evans has ties inside the Dolphins

I made the point in the last post that the Dolphins should know the kids coming out of the University of Miami and Florida International University better than any other team because of the proximity of those two schools. Well, throw in the University of Florida and Florida State, too.

Years ago, the Patriots had a great in at Florida because New England coach Bill Belichick and Gators coach Urban Meyer (now at Ohio St.) are great friends.

But the Dolphins are not without ties to the UF program and players. One player in particular to watch is safety Josh Evans.

He wrote an eloquent combine diary for onlygators.com and I suggest you check out the entire piece.

Basically, Evans met with the entire Dolphins coaching staff at the combine. (He also met with Washington, San Francisco, Tampa and Dallas among others.)

What stood out about Miami's meet is that Evans has a great connection with Dolphins assistant DB coach Blue Adams. Adams recruited Evans out of high school for Purdue.

"It was funny to meet up again because we had a great relationship when I was in high school," Evans tells onlygators.com. "When I was coming up, he showed me a lot of love, and now to see him on the professional level there is a sort of comfort to know this guy actually knows who I am. He knows my character, knows I’m not a problem child and knows I’m someone who is striving to be successful in life."

That's excellent news as one hopes Adams will expand on his relationship when discussing him within the Dolphins facility.

Evans was something of a disappointment in the 40 at the combine, running 4.58. But he has a reason: He tweaked a hamstring prior to the run. He'll get another chance at the Florida Pro Day.

If you are wondering why all the coverage of safeties lately, you should understand that is an area of need for Miami. Chris Clemons is an unrestricted free agent. If he doesn't that is a hole for Miami. But even if he does, which I expect, the Dolphins have no real depth at the position.

They had to sign Tyrone Culver late last season to be the backup when they really had no plans of bringing him back when training camp closed and he was cut.

The need doesn't rise to the first-round status, but it will be a discussion later on. Evans might be a fit. And by the way, Evans is training in Boca. That's really close to the Dolphins' training facility.

Of course one of my fans is impostering me at 9:08. I guess mommy did no favor when taking off his condom.

Fake Clive @ 9:12

OHHHH, Alex, the answer is YG4E, That was way to easy.

Wow, even I can be wrong! I thought the pro in promichelle meant professional. WRONG! It stands for prophylactic!

Have fun with my name, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

You see mr. fairy tale... Armando knows best. He will see your ip is different than mine and ban you...for the good of humanity.


You can't even fake me convincingly. Most 3rd graders have minds more developed than yours! Continue on...

At least we've learned something. promichelle is either a relative of Dustin Keller or dumber than a possum!

I don't recall ever worshipping him / they Ol wise one.

LOL, Yg, You did not actually say that Sporono would be the most sought after coach..
Did you??

Dear Armando,

Take note of the imposter and ban him according to your blog rules.

Thank you,
Sir Clive

and there's nothing to write home about...

Passing by, Yep he did.
He is by far the secomd most annoying poster here.
If stupid was a religon, They'd name YG Pope tommarrow.

I must say I've never seen a Clive here. Are you new?

How does Clive know the blog rules? Its his 1st time here.

Here, I'll tell you some stories. First time in English the Day my Music died.
Finally, the Day arrived. As the Plane ascended the li-ttle Palm trees receded. My Mother beguins to cry. I lean over, - Don't worry, Mom, my father will come soon. Crying. - What's the matter, Mom? Crying.......Oh! OHH!!AYYYYYYYAYYYYYYYYYARGYAYGHYYYYYYYYY.............

Who ever said I was white? I am, but still I find your assumption to be racist. A little bit anyway.
I've use articulate to describe any race when it fits. What else could I have said "we'll spoken" or " expresses himself clearly"? Those sound more racist to me.

===================================================

With you again Woodshed(BTW - Was it YOU that I was discussing Lane Johnson with right before the combine?).

No offense YG, but you do come across as very rascist. It seems you are very quick to jump all over white people. And for things that happened 5 and 6 generations ago. Slavery? Come on, that practice was ended by the GOOD PEOPLE(Black and White)of this nation over 150 years ago.

Stereotypes are just that, and some of them are very legit. Personally, I like the fact that Comedians today can make light of the subject and all are fair game. Regardless of the comedians nationality and/or that of the audience. I think it reflects positively on todays society. I think it also indicates that some of us......**SOME OF US**...... have made alot of progress in coming to terms with the ignorance that is the basis behind rascism and prejudism.

The American Indian was treated as bad, probably worse than African Americans, but I've never seen you JUMP to their defense every time someone mentions the Washington Redskins.

Like I said, no offense YG. But I think the blog would be best served if you left your........."dislike of white peoples(Ahem)" out of the discussions.


lol Most of you guys are totally fu(ked. This shyt is funnier than anything you will find on T.V.

I seriously doubt many of you have any education at all. Trailer trash and losers keep this blog alive. If Armando had any principles he would shut this thing down due to the asinine comments that continuely are posted.

If Armando won't do it, then the Miami Herald should shut it down. In fact, I will write a letter to the editor requesting that this blog be discontinued until it is properly monitored.

Can't expect too much from uneducated yankees trying to appear intelligent, but come on, please get a life people. But of course, come the end of the year Armando will send out a blog about how his blog 'broke another record' for comments. Congratulations Armando, enjoy the hits from ignorant, uneducated and uninformed followers who spend more time arguing about their sexuality than about anything relevant to the Dolphins.

I'm a life long Dolphins fan, but only a 3 month hater of this blog. I know, I choose to read it.. that is my mistake.

Armando, clean up this bullshyt blog.... that my friend is a challenge.

Clive was here before...and the blog was in the sewer...so Clive took a break. I must say I've never seen a dusty bottom here either.

I think its YG impersonating Clive.

12 days and counting tic tock tic tock ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

YG HAS A ZILLION DIFFERENT NAMES HE USES. HES SUCH A WUSSY.

To clean up this blog send emails to:

Armando is dropping the ball by allowing this to continue. Come on Armando..... clean it up!!!!!! I'm challenging you.... you know my email, please respond!!!!!

Clive,

How is it amusing yourself. You wasted no time doing so with great zest. I imagine you look in the mirror while amusing yourself. Well until you realize how ugly the mirror is reflecting back to yourself. Well good luck amusing yourself. Do not forget to clean off the mirror when your done. You know cleanliness is next to Godliness. Oh well go ahead make a mess at least you will be having some fun. Take care Clive, I'm out of here......

I get along with all of them, plebeian, when they are not talking sh-t. I'm allergic to sh-t.

But can we still discuss large brown nipples?

Large brown nipples will always be a subject for discussion.

Monday is the deadline for franchise tags

Cool

New Alias for YG4L, Sad really, soon he'll shut down the blog ike he did last year by coping his own posts...
Ohhhh, Sorry that was Odinstank.My Bad.

I have no idea of what direction Ireland will go regarding free agency but I believe wide out, corner and possibly offensive line we will tag Starks and retain Fasano and Clemmons

Cote thinks the Jets would trade Revis to the Jets! HA! Frickin brilliant. Hey our offense is TERRIBLE and let's let Sanchez throw picks to Revis twice a year. Clueless.

To the Dolphins obviously, bad editing.

Cover corner is our second biggest need

45 million does not go that far we probably can sign 2 or 3 guys tops plus retain a few , I can remember when 45 million was a lot of money

Remember, we need Depth to be a good Team. How can we add Depth if in many positions we don't have sure Starters? Hmm...

Not that I do not think defense is CRITICAL and awesome corners can change games, but we avg what? 16 pts a game year last year? That's not getting it done, I don't care WHO is playing corner.

Maybe in 2014.....Playoffs, you know....

We should trade back in the first and acquire another 2 and maybe a 5 then just be picking fools just like apple picking

And remember the guys that where forced to start last year will become depth this year,if we do this right we can contend this year

Anyone on here, who is sane, would not be stomping their feet claiming Ireland's done alright. He should have been fired by now. He don't know how to build a team.
When Ireland is gone, Miami might become relevant again.

====================================================

Again, no offense, but I think it's a strawman argument just for the sake of: Knocking It Down-lol!

I don't know of ANYONE here that says Ireland has done a great job. Craig M, his most ardent supporter wouldn't say Ireland has done a fantastic job.

I also notice how quick and strong you lump Ireland together with Parcells, so you can **PRETEND** that Ireland was "Running Things". Thats a Fallacy, NO WAY Parcells lets ANYONE, including Ireland, build HIS team for him. Parcells called **THE SHOTS** on player aquisitions, Ireland, for all intents and purposes was nothing more than Parcells Student/Lackey and Head Scout. Thats the REALITY of THAT.

Since Ireland **ACTUALLY TOOK COMMAND** he's had two drafts-PERIOD. Two Free Agency periods-PERIOD(LOL)!

Player aquisitions notwithstanding, Ireland **HAS** done a great job in free-ing up Cap Space and Stockpiling some extra picks. Thats what this is all about.

Like DC said earlier, Ireland should have been canned along with SpOrano. The fact is, the REALITY we have to deal with, Ireland gets his **Big Chance**. Deservedly so in my opinion. I think he's basically, somewhat......sort of.......**EARNED IT** on account of trimming the Fat and re-aquiring alot of picks that PARCELLS SQUANDERED.

The FACT is, Miami is basically a .500 team. Ireland will run the show whether we like it or not. He's Loaded with MONEY and PICKS. He's got his back to the proverbial wall and not an excuse in sight.

So......BE HAPPY Miami Fans. Theres only one of TWO things that can happen. And Miami fans should be estatic either way.

1. Ireland nails it and we're a Playoff Team.

2. Ireland whiffs and Ross does his best Donald Trump immitation: YOU'RE FIRED!!!!

Summation: Quit whinning about Ireland, quit whinning about Ross. Sit back, enjoy the ride........and most of all........BE HAPPY! Either way, Good things are about to happen in Miami!!!!

odor,

Take a laxitive and hang out on the can, will ya?

Bravo bravo the real Odin has spoken , great post

What's wrong with a good diaretic

We would've been deep into the playoffs if Ross wasnt too cheap to pay Matt Flynn.

Seems that way, odin.

Yes Harmel, Matt Flynn might be the best QB in football right now.

It's diuretic, YG.

Tonight I've changed gears. My Brazilian girlfriend is having it her way. Cabernet Sauvignon, Godiva chocolate, and the insouciant sounds of Jobim while we ponder the moons reflection on the sea. Divine really.

Bossanova is great Music for Sex.

The bossanova is a magically deceptive rhythm - floating, sensual, and alluring...perfect for mounting your mate and getting in sync.

My girl taught me how to make love. I was an aggressive pig before I met her, now I am a finely tuned lover. It's that tropical blood she has. They are in touch with all of their body, it's an aura that engulfs you and shows you the way.

Guess there is Music for any kind of Sex. You get one of these Big,Strong Women under You, you have to punish them hard. Raeggeton?

Uncla! How he punishes'em.

American women are physically taut, uptight. Sure, they love sex as much as anyone, but no matter how freely they give it to you, there is an underlying inhibition. Our society trains them to be that way. Too many mixed signals here. They are supposed to be feminine and pretty and sexy but not easy or sexual or flaunting. This is something completely foreign to South American women. They are open and extremely uninhibited. Many American men don't realize it, but men are king in South America. You are like a rock star down there. So many women, and so few men with means, that if you are at least middle class, you will have as many opportunities as Mick Jagger in his heyday. You must treat them with respect and dignity, and in no time you will be greatly rewarded. No song and dance cat and mouse games like the American women play. If they like you, there is no delay, no holding back, just spontaneous, reckless abandon. It's fun.

Many men here are stuck in such lame relationships, unaware that really the USA and Canada are the two worst countries for a single man on earth.

Yeah, it's all a function of knowing All of them. You press that spot there at the right Time, they will com= all over the place.

Geo is actually wearing a stained wife beater T-Shirt for the fourth day in a row. It was the "Cleanest" one he could find on the floor of his cluttered trailer.

The only Moon he sees is on the backside of the fat alcoholic chic that lives in the trailer next door.

She comes over.......er......waddles over and they make love to music alright, but it's not Jobim.

It's more like two retarded walruses grinding to the Rap music coming from the trailer on the other side.

He would say something to them about the "bumpin", but them Wanna-Be Gangsters scare him. Besides that, they have the best Meth in the WHOLE trailer park. They hook him up pretty good with the dubs.

ValHalla!!!!


That's some deep subject, Geo. Sure, over here Women are much harder to approach than in other Countries. I guess it'a a matter of Prejudice and false entitlement as Americans, in general, some how feel superior to the rest of the World, no matter who they are.
