Hurricane affecting game

The Dolphins and the NFL are monitoring the progress of Hurricane Wilma, which is threatening South Florida and could have an effect on Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Already, the Dolphins have announced they have postponed the halftime ceremony honoring Dan Marino's induction into the Hall of Fame.

The celebration was moved to halftime of the Nov. 6 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

In addition, the team's Orange Carpet Gala to honor all of the team's Hall of Famers was moved to Nov. 5 at 7 p.m.

As for the game, no decision had been made as of Wednesday afternoon. The University of Miami already has postponed its home game against Georgia Tech.

When asked about no decisions being made, Saban said: "I have no idea. It's a hypothetical and I really have no idea where this thing's going. My focus is on what we got to do right now and I'm going to assume that we continue to work and do what we need to do. This thing might go someplace else and hopefully it won't affect what we're doing and it won't affect our fans and the safety of our fans and our ability to have a great home game here on Sunday.

"But I can't predict any of that and we certainly don't have enough information to make any decisions about what we should or shouldn't do right now."

This unfortunately is becoming old hat for the Dolphins, who had two game times switched last year because of hurricanes -- the opener against Tennessee was moved to Saturday afternoon and a 1 p.m. home game against Pittsburgh was moved to 8:30 p.m.
