It's funny with Miami attendance numbers....


When they were a National power, the freaks came out. But when they were average or just above average, those seats were empty. I even remember when they were a power in the early 90s and they still had many vacant seats unless it was an FSU game.

What they need is a 45,000 seat stadium very close to campus or on campus. Right now... on campus just isn't an option on that tiny little campus. Maybe they can scrounge up enough dough to buy some property that is noncontiguous with the existing campus, but close enough for the students to walk to. But even that seems impossible in the Coral Gables surrounding areas.
