    They should have an Orange out for all their games. That way the empty seats won't be as noticeable.

    Exactly right! Since there will be more Gator Fans there than UM, it will be meaningless.

    This game worries me greatly. This is their "SUPERBOWL."

    There are many instances when the Gator Nation would buy up the visitors unsold tickets. Now there are a number of reasons why fans don't: weather, economics, big screen tvs, parking, schedule (opponent) and/or concessions not up to standard for some spectators. Folks are going to do what they want. It is what it is.

    Canes boards say they're wearing all white and supposedly we're going to wear orange, normally I'm not superstitious but I can't think we'd wear the orange jerseys again in a big game right- they're ugly, and we don't look right in them.

    what a terrible looking shirt! If the Gators tried to pull this, there is no way I would ever put that shirt on...

    It will be 65% Gators and louder than their usual 22,000 to 28,000 "fans" of which 5,000 went to stadium thinking it was a soccer match.

    Considering they only ordered 500 of these shirts, I think Tilly has it right.

    There message board doesn't defy the stereotype we have of Miami fans, half of them are angry and vowing to "eff the AD I'm wearing my Jim Kelly throwback", a quarter are sub-literate and the remaining 1/4 who actually may have attended the school are at best cautiously optimistic.

    Doesn't the visiting team automatically wear white jerseys unless the schools agree otherwise?

    I honestly might have to an "Adventures in Cane Land" post their message boards are freaking hilarious in how closely they hue to the bad image of a cane fan.
