The sellout-deficient 'Fins hosted players from the University of Florida's 2008 national championship squad on Sunday, an on-the-nose effort to cash in on Tebow's visit to Miami as Broncos quarterback. The team got an unexpected boost when Tebow was named starter by Denver coach John Fox leading up to the matchup, triggering a spike in ticket sales at Sun Life Stadium.
"It was awful," Fasano told WFAN-AM in New York (via SportsRadioInterviews.com). "Showing up at the stadium and seeing all the Gator stuff and the Tebow stuff. It was disheartening, but as players we kind of put ourselves in that position because the Dolphins are in the business of winning football games and making money.
"We haven't been winning football games, but it's still a smack in the face and it's unfortunate we couldn't rain on their parade and get the win."
Never a dull moment (or a win) in Miami these days.
