    ticket prices are high b/c Gator fans are buying them up, as a Gator who grew up in S Fla, there are SO MANY Gator fans in Dade, Broward and Palm beach counties who want in on this game.

    and UM needs all the revenue it can generate from this game. Look at its home schedule:

    FAU
    Savannah St
    Ga Tech
    Wake Forest
    Va Tech
    Va

    UM will be lucky to get 30K for any game other than UF...

    Why would the UAA be pissed about that?

    Miami will get hit by the NCAA and they will have a hard time paying the bills. They may have to move games to Miami Central H.S. Pathetic program IMO. Gators beat the snot out of them!

    Frankly I'm amazed Miami still has a football program. With the amount of fans in the stadium (or lack of) the last decade I would think the program is hemorrhaging money.

    Lets go in there, get it done and move on.

    They have to be losing money each year. The rent of the stadium with their paltry support has to be hitting them.

    I don't care if they're $100 a piece....any chance to beat a Miami team should be celebrated.
    It sickens my stomach that we let them win 6 years-in-a-row prior to our last win in 2008.
    Urban Meyer refused to lose games...unlike The Zooker, who was just happy to be employed.
    Our program is rising now and we should be getting serious payback now for all the lean years.

    They could always share a stadium with FAU.

    Even FAU has their own on campus stadium now.. And its actually quite nice. Miami must feel like the red headed step-child.

    We need to beat their ass on Saturday.

    Then we need to play them twice more, beat their ass twice more, RETAKE the series lead and after that......I don't care if we never play them agian...but it is vitally important that we retake the series lead.

    But dont we only give teams 8000? Again, I'm the first to rip the Canes, but not sure this is a valid reason.

    Never say never. Our next athletic director might be keen on getting Miami back on the schedule at the same time whoever's running their burning, sinking ship realizes it's in their best interest to play us. They need us a lot more than we need them.
