Games are getting pricy...I mean $4 for a normal size bottle water, and when it is that hot you spend $20 just one water, not including gas, tolls, parking, tickets and food...and that covers 1 person lol

SJMPARMAN

That kid who was born 11 years ago is going to wake up in 8 hours or so I gotta run but thank you and Cocane for the discussion because I think it is a real issue. If two more kids didn't follow, and I felt comfortable faking them out that tomorrow didn't exist, I would continue on here. But I just think UM is wrong for advertising this as an issue when they dont make games affordable for the fans.

CaneRock

and the historical legacy of the program is that this team belongs to the fans.

Yup.

SJMPARMAN

"Bottom line, if you don't live here, don't say sh*t because you have no idea how f*cked the struggle is. It's insulting to the die hards that would go but can't."

I was born in Miami and lived in South Florida for 43 years of my life. Believe me, I was struggling as hard as you ever have to make ends meet down there. I was actually a well paid guy down there, but I couldn't afford to attend the games at the costs they are charging to do so.

Yes, if there is a big game, people will shell out the big bucks to attend. That is because we love the team and the program. We will find a way to attend regardless of the sacrifice. But that happens only one or maybe two times a year.

Canes fans don't buy season ticket packages because of the other costs associated with attending. The market is therefore limited to the big games. When Miami loses an early game or two, and is out of the national championship possibility, attendance lags.

I lived there for 43 years. I struggled to pay a mortgage there, and to feed a kid there on the salary I made. I dropped UM attendance once my first kid was born. I just couldn't justify it anymore. Buying formula and diapers is more important than spending 100.00 for just me to attend a game.

UM has to get a grip on the total cost equation for fans and to get back to making game attendance afforable for the middle class. That was the point of my post.
I love South Florida, and the Miami area. But you will never have a home field advantage there if you don't have a game plan that includes the average citizens and not just former graduates of the UM. There ain't enough former graduates who remain in the area after they do so, and the historical legacy of the program is that this team belongs to the fans. I guess I just didn't say it well.

So fukk you inconsiderate, judgemental, ignorant, over privelaged bitches! You just don't know. If you have the means, go, enjoy, shut da fukk up & be thankful that you can instead critisizing a situation you don't understand or can't even fukkin relate to. ATTEND THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: CoCane | September 29, 2012 at 01:17 AM

Yes Sir!
And what most folks don't understand, should, is that Miami is a hospitality and customer service oriented town. So guess who the #1 employers are...that's right, you guessed it, hospitality and customer service.
And guess where the people who should be your fan-base are on Saturdays...that's right, you guessed it,
their serving your food,
they're cooking your food,
they're cleaning your hotel rooms,
they're directing traffic outside the stadium,
they're stripping,
they're mixing drinks,
etcetera,etcetera.

Panamacitycane

And hurri dont forget one guy asked well he is offsides and on the field and the other guy said it doesnt matter...WTF? Ive never heard of this every game ive seen that they get called..he said its ok because he wouldnt interfere with the play? Once again every time ive seen it, it is called a penalty..media hates us..other teams hate us..other fans hate us...US AGAINST THE WORLD!

Hurri

Tony, Yes, but its not your normal hurry up IMO. They line up quick and if they catch you off sides or trying to run somebody off the field then they'll run a play...
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

According to the GT officials & commentators, 12 men on the field is "Okay" as long as they're...getting...off the field...? Even though they're still...ooooooon it...

Which is the essence of violation.

Soooooo is speeding okay, as long as I slow down while I'm being pulled over?

Whatever...34-24 The U

CoCane

SJM,

U know what you're talking about. South florida costs too much to live & pays too little for most to go to the games. When the U has a sell out dam near everyone thats a cane fan that can afford it is there. TRUST ME. I've lived here 28 out of 32 years of my life, know hundreds of cane fans & only maybe a dozen can afford to go. & I aint 1 of them. My neighbors had this attendance discussion tuesday night. All of us cane fans & we all agreed we would go to the games if sh*t was cheaper or we had more $. Bottom line, if you don't live here, don't say sh*t because you have no idea how f*cked the struggle is. It's insulting to the die hards that would go but can't. I've only been able to take my 14 year old son to 1 game & he's as big a fan as me my dad & the rest of my fam. If we could go we all would. So fukk you inconsiderate, judgemental, ignorant, over privelaged bitches! You just don't know. If you have the means, go, enjoy, shut da fukk up & be thankful that you can instead critisizing a situation you don't understand or can't even fukkin relate to. ATTEND THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WWIN

Tony,

Yes, but its not your normal hurry up IMO. They line up quick and if they catch you off sides or trying to run somebody off the field then they'll run a play, if not they see what the defense is in then everybody looks to the sideline for the play call and run the play like normal. So really they are just trying to keep the defense from substituting, they are still snapping the ball with less than 10sec on the play clock

WWIN

So I guess that means Kirby is playing tomorrow

Dumb question....but is the hurry up a new feature this year to the canes offense?

SJMPARMAN

As someone who went to school for a year not far from the University of Iowa and who still has family living in that area, I can tell you that it is not about National Championships. It is about the atmosphere of being at a college football game. Iowa does not have regular events where you can go and be a part of a crowd of 70,000 people other than a football game.

Going to a Hawkeye game for them is a little about pride in the state. But it is not a big deal for them. They don't blog for weeks about losing to another big ten team. Iowa people are well grounded, decent human beings who don't make football the bane of their existence. They aspire to occasionally be in the hunt for the big ten. But even if the Hawkeyes go 0-12, they will always be proud of their state and they have good reason to be. It is a very nice place to live.

There is no pro football in Iowa. The closest pro teams are over 6 hours away in either St Louis, Minnesota, or Chicago. They don't have pro baseball or basketball. They tend to be Cubs and Bears fans because that is their TV market in eastern Iowa. So going to a college football game is a huge deal for them.

I guarantee you that they don't pay 30.00 to park the car, 4.00 for a cold hot dog, or 8.00 for a beer either. And a good number of their fans never attended the school either. They go to the games because it is a social event and not because they expect the team to win a national championship every year. In some ways, I wish our fans were more like them.

The Hurricane games are not family priced. A deal is not 3 for 93. I have a family of 5. If I still lived in the area, that would be 155.00 for tickets, 30.00 to park, probably 20.00 in sodas, 24.00 in beer, and probably 30.00 in Hot Dogs or other food. That is 259.00 a game not counting the cost to get there in gas and tolls along the way.

In the old days, I used to but the Whopper to get my ticket, park and ride to the OB for 8.00, and I still had 20.00 for food and drink. Even after it was popular to go to Miami games, you could buy an end zone seat for 14.00 and after halftime move anywhere in the stadium and watch the game. You could always show up and buy a cheap ticket off guys selling outside the stadium after kickoff began, well below market price. Heck, once when I was looking for a ticket outside, some big time booster came up to me and gave me a 50 yard line ticket right behind the bench.

It was just affordable back then. Most Canes fans, and Dolphins fans for that matter, were working class men and women. You didn't have to make a big paycheck to support the team. It has changed these days. I admire you guys who drive from far away, and stay at a hotel and support the team. Thank God you have the money to do so. But most South Floridians don't make that much money. It is a struggle to live pay check to pay check and spending big bucks on college football is not their reality.

The attendance is not because there isn't love for the U. Fans still pay attention to the games but they just can't afford to attend.

SOUP

OK, Canespace LIVE here at The Hampton Inn in Plantation, FL.

Left the 863 late, hit some SERIOUS rain on the way down and stopped at Bokampers Bar and Grill on the way to The Hampton.

Early morning start tomorrow but...

We ready, WE READY!!!

SOUP

Also lol with the noon games but the Dolphins had 60 thousand paid and they haven't played for the Championship since Madonna,Prince, and Michael Jackson were on top of the Music Industry the 1984-85 season.

Posted by: Tsully76 | September 28, 2012 at 08:22 PM

Who is Madonna?

WWIN

I hope people understand that we are NOT going to keep getting away wit poor attendance just because we did in the past. Times are changing and kids are different now. Kids will start going to schools that are selling out.

CaneRock

“I am hopeful there will be noticeable improvement,” said UM associate athletic director for marketing and communications Chris Freet, who said he hopes for a crowd of 45,000 on Saturday. “It’s a totally different dynamic coming off a loss to Kansas State and facing a I-AA [Football Championship Subdivision] opponent as opposed to coming off a marquee win for Al Golden’s tenure and facing an ACC opponent.

“A lot of the marketing in this town for sports fans — right, wrong or indifferent — is based on the buzz around the team. And the buzz around the Hurricanes is very good now.”

The only thing I can say about the REAL Miami fan base is they are REAL. We may not have the numbers, but we have the loyalty and family. For the few real fans, the love runs deep. Being a Cane is special and only true Cane fans understand that, its not like two Gator fans saying whats up to each other and passing by, when you see a fellow throw up that U you see family, you see someone who understands its a Cane thing. So while we might not have numbers, I do like what we do have.

Panamacitycane

It just doesnt have the college feel to it..the fun in seeing other teams is the stadium and the vibe they give off..and if you are not going because they arent winning then you are not a fan and this is why the city of miami is horrible for sports..I love the hurricanes and the dolphins been a fan since I knew who they were. But im not a fan of the city just the teams. It pisses me off to know that because you live there you rep the canes but dont actually support them unless it makes you look cool..miami is full of douchebags and tools

I for one think the attendance is silly to talk about..it is what it is and will never change. It is no secret Miami is king of the bandwagon fans....and miamicane..in this small town I live the high school stadium is packed for every home game and they suck, but it is all this community has.

Panamacitycane

I live in Tallahassee and will say the stadium is literally on campus and there is nothing I mean nothing to do other then games so thats why they get fans. But how does teams like USC sale so many tickets and they are in Los Angeles? Is there nothing to do there? That's what I thought. For people that live within driving distance and have the money should make it to atleast a couple games. Hell im from panama city which is two hours from tally and have a lot of friends at least 25 plus their family that I kmow of who travel 2 hours for every fsu home game. Either way BEAT NCSTATE LETS GO CANES!!!

The Dude

The attendence arguement is dumb. Even the Knicks and Mets have bad attendence when they stink.

The Dude

Attendence in Manhatten, KS is a culture of college football because it is actually the only sense of pride they have. Los Angeles doesn't sell out USC games every weekend. It doesn't stop them from winning big. Truthfully Sunlife is too big for the Canes. 50k seats is about it even when things are good. Even FSU doesn't sell out unless they are good. No one who accounts for their entertainment dollars wants to pay to see a crappy show. That is true in every stadium. Entertainment dollars in Miami demand results. See the Heat?

Jiggafras

First of all people need to look at how many people in miami and surrounding areas are actually from the area. There are huge populations of Hispanics who care not one flying fish about Football muchless Miami but they care about Futbol, also alot of island people, Haitians, jamaicans etc. I went to a bar in west palm beach last year, and there was actually not one of the TVs that had the Miami game but they were showing Michigan games. If you count what proportion of the fans in Miami and around actually have a connection to Miami, its quite small. It is not a public institution and if u didnt go there or have family or friends who do, what else give you a rooting interest other than you live in the city? I do feel Miami needs to do alot more community outreach, and be more visible especially in PBC and Broward county. My take, but it is still what it is

Tsully76

Amen Willie Will.

mi@mic@ne

Its not like these small towns where people like to go see losers. lol

mi@mic@ne

Miami is a very fickle town but when your riding the wave theres no better place to be. Just look at the last home playoff game when the Heat closed it out. That place was rocking. There was a connection between the team and the fans that you dont see in other venues. When the Canes start to become a serious top ten team then youall see the people become loyal.

WWIN

Tsully,

I agree its a disgrace. And they always make excuses about it like, we got other things to do, those other teams don't have nothing to do in their city but go to games, etc ,etc. Its ridiculous to have more support on the road than at home

pbcfrcane13

If you want go look at the HX of UM even when they were great they didnt draw big crowds only for the big games! UM you want to get 50+ for all your games get ranked in the top 10 and start winning 10+ games a year......sorry but thats the truth and if you dont like it than sorry dont know what else to tell you.

Tsully76

Great point Canesrock. Last week was fun at Bobby Dodd. I will see you Canespacers in the am at Sun Life. Go Canes. Beat NC State.

pbcfrcane13

Why are people even still talking about the attendance? I mean really its been like this since i dont know forever! Every sports team in SFLA has the same problem look at the dolphins the past two games have not been able to sell out the heat before lebron got here the staduim was not sold out the panthers its the samething. If you dont win in Miami or if its not a big even people dont show up. WHy is this still a big deal? We are still having "big" time recruiting classes ranked in the top 25 with the same attendance.

Peopl dont go to the games one yes because its hot....two most people dont care about UM because they went away to another college...three people would rather stay home sit in 70 degree AC with cheaper food and beer and watch 5 games at one time than spend 400 bucks to sit in the hot sun. GET OVER IT!!!! This isnt UF, FSU were there is nothing else to do! This is Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/ WPB!!! HOly cow people stop your complaining!!!!

I pay my hard earn money to go to every home game and at least one away game because I love this team. I get why people like friends and family dont want to pay the money to go watch this team.

CaneRock

Old Skool so explain our Canes winning the 2001 National title and averaging 47,000 fans for that year cut the bs.

Posted by: Tsully76 | September 28, 2012 at 08:15 PM

Tsully, there are fans that go to the games, and there are fans that don't...that's the way I look at it. Frankly, I was just as excited as the Miami fans in Atlanta when Miami came back last week. And similarly, I'll be just as excited tomorrow should Miami beat NCST.

Tsully76

Canesrock I say its a freaking disgrace for the program to have accomplished so much yet the regional population claims they care but when it matters proves they don't care. The fact that the program has done awesome over the modern era with a small die hard fan base is remarkable. And there is so much to do argument is the lamest bs ever. Also lol with the noon games but the Dolphins had 60 thousand paid and they haven't played for the Championship since Madonna,Prince, and Michael Jackson were on top of the Music Industry the 1984-85 season.

Old Skool

Make that "a shared herd instinct and a docile acceptance of being slaughtered."

Old Skool

Iowa and Iowa State...NONE!

What? Iowa hasn't won any national championships and the football team still sells out every home game. Do you mean that failure is expected and accepted?

Of course, there could be nobility in losing. So if you're satisfied with mediocrity, so be it. Miami fans have much higher standards.

Otherwise, living in a state that has as many cows as people in it and then coming together regularly in one spot such as Iowa City could simply be a matter of s shared herd instinct.

Ohio_Cane

Willing to bet $ that because of their OL problems, NC State will try to slow down Canes DL with screens to RB's and WR's.

CaneRock

So for a program to have won as much as the U has won and to not be able to get 1% of the regions population aka 75,000 to fill Sun Life and in the past the OB is freaking disgrace.

Posted by: Tsully76 | September 28, 2012 at 07:43 PM

A "disgrace"? I disagree TS76, I think it just makes what we've accomplished that much more remarkable.

Tsully76

There are 4,250,000 people within an hour drive aka the Miami/Fort Lauderdale market. I didn't include West Palm, the Treasure Coast, South West Florida who are within a 2 hour drive that pushes the regional population around 7,500,000. So for a program to have won as much as the U has won and to not be able to get 1% of the regions population aka 75,000 to fill Sun Life and in the past the OB is freaking disgrace.

Tsully76

Great stuff solar. Canes rock the fact that the U has 5 titles in the modern era of college football and gets such horsecrap support is legitimate and real. Sometimes the truth hurts. We on here are die hards and try to go to as many games as possible. We have fans that drive for hours to see the Canes and you got people claiming they are down with the U but when its really time to show it they are no where to be found.

solarcane

for my man tsully,
seems the nation believes what you say

an Iowa fan's observation on Miami sports fans

"Miami is the worse sports town I've ever lived in. They are the biggest bunch of bandwagon fan base you'll ever come by and the worse fan base you could have for a city.

Reason 1.) As a kid I'd visit miami often. And one of the things we'd do is go to Marlin games. After the 1st inning was over. You could buy a 5 dollar ticket to get into the game for upper deck seats. After you bought this ticket you could literally sit where ever you wanted. Only time you could not do this process is if the Yankees were in town. Ive been to a couple dolphins games, as well as heat games (pre Shaq or Leborn) and not once was it a sell out crowd.

Reason 2.) When visiting down there throughout the years. I remember when I was 4 everyone was a Gator fan. Than later everyone was FSU fan. In 2002 everyone was Miami fan again. Fast forward to 2009 everyone was a Gator fan. I'm predicting when I visit for xmass, everyone will be a FSU fan again.

Reason 3.) Kinnick stadium holds 70,500 fans. In a city whose pop is 67,000. I'd venture to guess on game day Iowa City's pop is 180,000. Miami teams dont sell out unless they are winning. So for this instance we'll use the hurricanes. They had 300 people show up in a city whose pop is 2.5 million people (not counting the illegals)"

4-Real

Ohio, gotta recruiting question 4 u . It's been said 4 awhile now that UM only has 16-17 schollys 2 give 4 the 2013 class. But didn't the coaching staff come up with that number b4 we lost Vernon Davis, Josh Witt, Keon Payne & Junior Alexis?

Treatment of a High Ankle Sprain

Syndesmotic injuries tend not to heal as well as more common ankle sprains, that is why trainers and coaches of athletes are often concerned about "high ankle sprains." Your orthopedic doctor will first determine if the injury is stable or unstable. If the injury is stable, then the high ankle sprain can be treated in a cast, usually for a period of 6 weeks.

If the injury is unstable, then a surgery may be needed to stabilize the ankle. Your surgeon will place a screw between the tibia and fibula to hold the bones in proper position while the syndesmotic ligament heals. The are several methods of fixation of syndesmotic injuries, all with potential risks and benefits. It is a relatively safe and well-tolerated surgical procedure.

Miami Hurricanes vs. NC State Wolfpack - By The Numbers

0 – Interceptions thrown by Wolfpack quarterback Mike Glennon in his past three games, all won by NC State.

2 – Games (out of three) that the Hurricanes have lost to NC State since joining the ACC in 2004.

4 – Touchdowns scored by Canes senior running back Mike James last week against Georgia Tech. Freshman running back Duke Johnson scored four touchdowns the week before against Bethune-Cookman.

8 – Number of Miami’s scoring drives (out of 20) that have occurred in less than two minutes.

11 – Sacks recorded by the Wolfpack this season, which ranks fourth in the conference.

14 – Times Miami has faced off against NC State; the Hurricanes have a 7-5-1 series edge over the Wolfpack.

32:36 – Average minutes NC State spends on offense per game, good for the best time of possession mark in the ACC.

164.7 – Passing yards per game allowed by the Wolfpack defense in its last three games. NC State has given up only one passing touchdown since its season opener.

209.5 – All-purpose yards per game tallied by UM running back Duke Johnson, ranking him first in the nation in the category.

436 – Yards for Hurricane quarterback Stephen Morris last week against Georgia Tech, making him the first UM quarterback to throw for 400+ yards since 2002.

Ohio_Cane

Mike Farrell (Rivals): Last week I talked about the Miami-area quarterbacks that got away from the 'Canes as part of the problem this season, but Stephen Morris might have salvaged the season for Miami and really pushed recruiting forward. The heart that Miami showed in coming back from a 36-19 deficit to pull out a 42-36 overtime win over a Georgia Tech team that just slammed Virginia the week before was impressive. Some local recruits, including Matthew Thomas and Denver Kirkland, certainly took notice.

Tsully76

Exactly Canezilla. Sellouts for FSU, and UF

UMike

Tsully..I was at the OSU game with a OSU friend..we had the taps AND empty seats..I remember cause I was in the upper deck and my friend was amazed that we couldnt sell out a game like that.

Tsully76

Last year when Ohio State came to Sun Life. There was 68 thousand about 25,000 were OSU fans. I was in the house for that game. Oh we will get 75,000 for FSU this year just 30,000 will be FSU fans. It is what it is. Canes 4 life.

If Reynolds would pay attention he would realize we have only played 1 home game and it was against BCC. They keep on writing articles about the attendan. People are gonna show up starting this saturday. I believe it

Gt was an anomaly... its back to a two dimensional offense. I hope we man up more cause we dont cover guys on our heels... you know they are gonna mix it up to confuse us as to who picks up who in the secondary.

Are we expecting Curtis Porter to play Saturday? He is not listed in the IR.

Is that based on results or a personal dislike for certain coaches? I think the latter.

This. OGV is in a perpetual win win situation. If we win its "hey I'm just as happy as you guys". If we lose its "I told you so, fire the coaches!".

Must be an anomaly, cuz they can flip anyone.

Oh, unless they just really don't want him, that's why he's not flipping. If they REALLY wanted him, they'd get him.

Right... Stupid Noles...

Canes commit Artie Burns on his visit to FSU last weekend: “It was good, but I’m still 100% committed to Miami.”

Canes are currently No. 62 nationally in attendance, with the player No. 1 nationally in all-purpose yards. Doesn't compute.
