Top Ten South Florida Sports Events of the Decade

Its been an unforgettable decade. From crazy headlines to record-breaking performances, this has for sure been the best decade of the millennium so far.

From Steve Bartman's impeccable fielding to the close foul of Dwyane Wade in the finals, we have been dealt some good hands this decade.

There were some memorable drafts and offseasons which resulted in the arrivals of Shaq, Hanley, Joey Porter, and Roberto Luongo.

We replaced some overrated and overhyped coaches, with coaches who show promise for the future. Wannstedt had a decent run, but he was ousted. We believed that Saban was our future, but after a disappointment of a season, we were sure that Cam Cameron's offensive genius was our answer.

After a one-win season, we have finally returned to the good caliber coach that Miami is used to.

Pat Riley started us off. Stan carried us until we had a championship caliber team, and then Riley had to return. His stay lasted until we didn't have a good team, and then Coach Spo took over.

Butch Davis recruited a team which consisted of over ten first round draft picks and pro-bowlers. He was not able to see his team win.

Larry Coker got a good name for leading a team to a championship, that any reader of this slideshow could have won with.

After years of realizing that our coach was not a typical UM coach, Randy Shannon took over to try to put the fear back in the name. The U will soon be back.

Coaches Sparano, Shannon, and Spoelstra have displayed good seasons, with the two professional coaches making the playoffs, and Randy Shannon having a nine-win season which seems to erase every memory of the Larry Coker regime.

(Pete Deboer looks to finally bring another playoff run to the Panthers, after a "fluke" Stanley Cup run in the 90s.) And Fredi Gonzalez's team is looking good too. Lets review.
