Yes. I forgot to add that crashing their party with anti-UM signs makes us look like the petty, ugly, red-headed stepchild. Promote FIU without denigrating Miami. If we were playing them it would be different, but to take shots at them without having a dog in the fight is silly.

Exactly!!!

Promote FIU. Don't even mention UM... They're a top 10 team right now. We would look silly trying to bark at them.

How this idea for a sign:

"College Football flying south for the Winter"

Then you can show the UF / FSU logos crossed out. With the FIU and UM logos prominent. This way you may even get UM fans to support the idea.

Or you can just do one of those oversize printouts of Butch Davis smiling with his FIU golf visor. If it's goofy enough, I'm sure people will like it. Butch is still seen pretty favorably by most down here.

What time are you going again?

EFF UCG, i used to root for them but All about FIU now. I couldn’t care less for them, i want to take a FIU sign but from what I’m hearing you have to camp there the night before. I’m too old for that and would mess up my tailgate routine for our game.

I would love to see some students with FIU sign. Wait, so gameday on their campus then they have to drive 45 mins north to stadium? :mrgreen: muertos !!!

Just received an email for anyone who’s curious:

Parking garages open at 5am
The pit will open at 6:30am first come first serve

Obviously show starts at 9am

Hope to see pro FIU signs... leave your anti UM signs at home

You won't have to camp out, just figure out how long it will take to get to their campus, wake up X amount of time before 5, and arrive when the the gates open. Or use public parking and walk over and be there by 6:30.

No.

It was pushed pack after Butch was hired.

I expect substantial stadium improvements or total expansion by 2021 or we'll be renting the Hard Rock for that one game too.

If any one of my Panther Family is heading to Gameday Production at Coral Gables, take a shot at FAU.

Something like .

"Butch will derail the LameTrain"

Or "LameTrain Next Stop:. Anywhere But Boca"

I'd keep from taking direct shots at duhU. But subtle one like..

"FIU where Miami really goes to school"
Or "Gameday is lost, there's no stadium here"

Enjoy guys. Will be cool to see at least one sign!!
