I may be band for writing this. I know some cringe on these boards when the green and orange name is discussed. But we are greatly in their debt; they were the only college football team in Miami for many years.

They also hired Butch Davis as head coach and he created a great legacy there, and doing so again with FIU.

We can be Robin to their Batman Abbott to their Costello, Jermaine to their Michael Jackson. You don’t have to love or hate them, but they have set a great standard for us to follow that no one can deny. Another way of looking at this is “FIU is the main chick and UM is the hot looking side chick”

Ummm.... ok. I don't see it like that. Yes, this city is all about The U. Now more than ever with their current resurgence. Miami is all bandwagon fans, so which ever team is hot will get all the attention and fans.

Until FIU, Miami was all about The U. Canes and Panthers now share the city, but no doubt, Canes have the legacy, stories, history, and infamy. FIU still hasn't really gained any of those things. Two bowl games, (many in the city don't even remember) is our only real history.

I don't see what we have UM to thank for. They haven't down anything for us.

It's simple, FIU needs to be a good team, in bowl games season after season, to be anything but relevant in this town. It's the only way we will be anything in this town.

I dont even know what to say to that. Are you writing erotic fan fiction about football teams? No

If you don't know why every FIU student and grad should dislike that institution, then I can't help you. Good luck diminishing your own degree for the benefit of yuppie NYC transplants.

Current and future generations should be cheering for FIU. I''ll give a pass to the older generations that grew up without FIU football... This is a dumb thread.

Wrong timing but the OP has a point. We're not going to elevate ourselves by trashing Miami's beloved U (while they're winning). A lot of their fans might be bandwagon fans but who gives a crap. I wish FIU had bandwagon fans too..our attendance sucks and it's not all FIU's fault. We play teams no one has heard of.

FIU is the reason I earn a good wage, therefor they will always get my support, but the canes is why I love football.

I've seen people trash them on this board and that's fine. But remember that they are the only one out of the big 3 P5 schools in the state that have agreed to not only play us, but come to our house. That will bring a hell of a lot more attention to the school than wraps on smelly public buses.

My point is that those guys have a lot of clout, we should be working with them not against them. At least until reach where we want to be as a program.

Sex Panther understands. I wish people on these boards would not get in their feelings once Univ of Miami is brought up. We can be an alternative to U and still thrive.

Butch has created media interest in our program, and this because, he was a former UM Coach. Let us not fool ourselves, this is a win for us. I have never seen the local media fall all over themselves to speak with someone like Butch. The power he has is incredible. Also, he still has a fan base here in South Florida; UM fans, players and some within the media, and college athletics. We struck a goldmine when he arrived.

“Good luck diminishing your own degree for the benefit of yuppie NYC transplants”. “This was a low blow Mr. Administrator”. It’s hard to explain to those that don’t reside in South Florida where FIU is. This is what diminishes my degree, dear sir.

P.S who says yuppie anymore that's so dated....

Oh my god it's SO HARD to explain to people that FIU is in Miami. So incredibly difficult to say "its in Miami." Ugh.

The school in coral gables has nothing to do with us. We owe them nothing. We don't even need to mention them on this board. Focus on FIU.

The fact that an explanation is needed is the problem in my opinion.
