Tulane seems to be VERY cupcake-heavy these days.
Friday Night Lights… is about HIGH SCHOOL football. This is about “filling television inventory”.
Welp, looks like FIU will be losing on homecoming next year. HBTD!
nice Small 10 OOC game. Gotta love the Small 10
“Indiana has a tremendous history and tradition”
I thought this was a football scheduling website, not a basketball schedule website.
Greg R., totally agree. History and tradition of losing. Ron Turner must be smoking something down in Miami and it’s not a cigar.
It’s all relative. With all of the Incarnate Words, Mercers, and, yeah, Florida Internationals of the world invading college football, Indiana looks majestic in comparison.
Indiana went to Rose Bowl in 1967 and with any luck may go this century also.
“Indiana has a tremendous history and tradition.” – Ron Turner
Ron, something isn’t true just because you say it.
Ron probably didn’t say it. Some donut in PR at FIU probably wrote it and attributed it to poor Ron. But I do have to agree with the sentiment.
No matter where they play this game, both teams can walk to the stadium. Schools are so close to each other.
It’s 21 miles from UM’s campus in Coral Gables to its home stadium, Sun Life. Maybe the teams can handle that walk, but at my age, I’ll take the shuttle, thank you.
Neutral site? 1. Can they afford 2 neutral site games a year? (With that pitiful OOC schedule they have, they would make the home game up by playing Eastern Kentucky and Eastern Michigan.) and 2. When UF played Miami at SunLife last year, I swore the crowd favored Florida. And playing in Miami would help recruiting that area. It’s just UF being UF. No wonder they wasn’t very good last year. (And all this is coming from a UGA fan!)
I was at the game. Every time we (Miami) play FSU or UF at home, we’re promised these huge contingencies. That September 2013 game against UF barely had 10k Gator fans out of 77k… Not sure why you’d think it favored Florida.
I would do a dam thing florida wants. It home and home or nothing. There talking about playing Texas in the future so stop the cap about to tough a schedule. Man up. Yeah Kentucky, Vanderbilt tough conference games. Blake James move on forget the gators. We have the all time record, last 7 out of 8 including the last game. They don’t want a home and home. I guess there our butcher forever then. Come to daddy gators.
“No wonder they wasn’t very good last year. ”
Is that Georgia speak?
How do you consider this “close to renewing a series” as the headline states. Previous UF-Miami games were generally “home-and-home”, But as your report suggests UF does not want a home-and-home series.
And the UF-Miami agreements are not even close to being finished. It appears just a beginning discussion.
So please correct your headline.
A series can also be a series of games, not just home-home.
its a good point. its a misleading headline to try to increase hits. The article gives zero indication that UF and Miami are “close” to an agreement.
James is right, Orlando is not a “fair” neutral site, but it would be a big payday for UM and a good game for ESPN, so it will probably happen at some point. Maybe not for several years because of other games that both teams have already scheduled.
I think the gators are scared to play us
Strangely, it might make most sense for Miami and Florida to play at UCF’s stadium, rather than the Citrus Bowl right now. UCF’s stadium area is a much better area than the Citrus.
Citrus bowl being renovated. Bright house cable distribution field has nowhere near requisite capacity for UF.
I don’t care where UM vs UF is played. This game should be played every year. It is an underrated rivalry and it creates a huge buzz in the state of Florida when the game is played. I prefer home and home series but a neutral site is fine. In the mid 80’s the series was played in Tampa at the old Sombrero. I believe that when USF has there stadium finished, then the rivalry can be renewed at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa in 2018. That year sounds logical considering both teams have their out of conference schedule mostly completed through 2017. I hope this happens but I am not holding my breath.
As a Seminole fan – I can tell you that UF is scared or Miami!!! This game will not happen!
Yo NC State schooled you and Clemson let you off the hook! But the bad news is that you were the #1 and the BCS expects better from you to WIN but you trailed behind unranked NCSU!!!!!!!!!!
It’s about money. Away games pay much, much less than home games. Miami has been almost as bad as florida lately. That’s like saying they’re too scared to play Kentucky.
Scared of Miami? You’re insane dude! FSU won the NC and we renewed the contract with Ya’ll. Why the hell should we be scared of Miami? Florida just didn’t play well in the red zone or they could have easily won that game against the Canes. Anynody who watched the game knows that. I hope it’s renewed.
UF has to play FSU. The legislature would require it if they tried to cancel the series. Trust me the Gators would drop them if they could. They’ve dropped everybody else who’s a challenge in the non-conference schedule. UF has lost 6 of the last 7 to Miami. They want no part of a potential early season loss. They want to be 4-0 going into SEC play.
That’s why the field is 100 yards and not 80 dumb ass. If only if and buts were candy and nuts we’d all gave a Merry Christmas. Just like a gator fan.
If you cave into the gators and play anything but a home and home you can keep my season tickets. We own the series, 8 of the last 9 and the last game. We don’t need them. I have many friends that are season ticket holders that feel the same way. There our b itches forever lol. You dictate terms. Jloop19@aol.com
Bring it to Raymond James Stadium
