It is not a shock to open a paper to find Florida State listed as a 22-point favorite. The Seminoles (7-0) are No. 3 in the Bowl Championship Series standings and have defeated their last three opponents by a combined score of 163-31. Florida State is very good, if not tremendous. It is a shock to open a paper to find Florida State listed as a 22-point favorite over Miami. It would be one thing if Miami were 0-7 and unranked, but Miami is 7-0 and ranked No. 7. It would be one thing if Miami has struggled against Florida State, but the Hurricanes lead the all-time series, 31-26, and 14-9 in Tallahassee.

Sometimes Steve Walsh finds himself standing in front of the team photo hanging in his Kenner, La., home. It is the 1986 University of Miami football team and, frankly, it is amazing. "I look at that picture, and I think about what kind of team we were," says Walsh, now a quarterback for the New Orleans Saints. "There were a variety of races, from a lot of different places. I was from St. Paul (Minn.

On Thursday night, the Lakers selected stretch-forward Ryan Kelly with the 48th pick in the 2013 NBA draft. While Kelly is recovering from a second foot surgery, General Manager Mitch Kupchak said he was cleared last week to return to basketball activities. The Lakers may not bring him to Las Vegas for summer league but expect him to have a good summer of training in preparation for the season. As a second-round pick, Kelly still has to make the Lakers' roster, but given the team's need for younger, inexpensive talent -- the 22-year old Duke Blue Devil has a real shot to make the squad in October.

Howard Schnellenberger, Jimmy Johnson, Dennis Erickson: No one misses a beat. The Miami Hurricanes, always a little ostentatious, should add another national title to the three that Schnellenberger, Johnson and Erickson won in the past decade. The team of the 1980s moves into the 1990s as the defending national champion. It will take a great effort to dethrone it.

College football has never seen anything like this before. Not with Notre Dame, not with Oklahoma, not with Alabama, not with Penn State or Texas or Southern California or Nebraska. Dynasties all, of course, but none has carved out its niche with quite the roguish verve and outlandish nerve of the Miami Hurricanes. Hate them, snarl at them, even laugh with them, but don't strip them of the recognition they deserve.

The brash and controversial Miami Hurricanes of the 1980s, the taunting, end-zone-celebrating villains of college football from that decade, are the subject of a new documentary called "The U," a film by director Billy Corben, which is part of ESPN's "30 for 30" series. The documentary is scheduled to be televised at 6 p.m. on Dec. 12, following the presentation of the Heisman Trophy. "Whether you're a lover or hater of the Hurricanes, it's a fun two hours," Corben said during a conference call this week.

The Miami Hurricanes, saddled with a national reputation as a group of renegades, want to change their image. Last season, no matter what the talented group of football players did on the field, their off-field exploits drew as much or more attention. Controversy swirled around the team all season, culminating with a series of incidents at the Fiesta Bowl that received national publicity and embarrassed the university administration. Now, the Hurricanes are fighting back.

Blitzing on almost every play, Georgia Tech was in Kyle Wright's face all night. And when he threw the ball up for grabs with the game on the line, the Yellow Jackets were there too. They sacked Wright seven times and made two late defensive stands, intercepting his final pass to upset the third-ranked Miami Hurricanes, 14-10, on Saturday night. "Not anyone believed it could happen," Georgia Tech Coach Chan Gailey said.

My congratulations to the Miami Hurricanes for putting the Oklahoma Sooners in their place, but I have one qualm.

Miami loses one football game since September 2000 and it darn near requires a crisis intervention? We've heard of defeat leaving a bitter taste, but not to the extreme Maurice Sikes is taking it, the Miami safety refusing to eat tortilla chips in the wake of January's double-overtime loss to Ohio State in the "Tostitos" Fiesta Bowl. Some have called that bowl championship series national title game the most exciting in college football history. Not here, though, not ever.
