Coach talked to Steve Shapiro last night, confirmed that the FIU vs UM game will be 2018 and 2020. So excited!

I'd be even more excited if we had until 2019 to prepare for that first UM game. Going to Hard Rock next Fall with a first year QB? Anyways, I will believe that the game is scheduled for 2018 when it is officially announced as such.

Hey, you are right, if BD says it, who of us is going to argue? Still, the last official word pubbed was this, in the Herald, last fall, under Vila's byline:


NOVEMBER 17, 2016

The Miami Hurricanes and FIU Panthers have agreed to push back their two scheduled football games.

As it stands, FIU will visit Miami at Hard Rock Stadium in 2019; the Hurricanes will then travel a few miles west to visit FIU in 2021.

The two teams had originally scheduled games in 2018-19.

The games were switched because Miami needed a home game in 2019. The second game was moved back because Miami did not have availability on its 2020 schedule.

Thanks for recording! Butch did say we play Miami in 2018, but he followed it with an "I think" lol. It is a bit annoying that every time someone interviews him they always have to bring up other programs. I mean, I get why they do, but for once it would be nice just to talk about FIU.

P.S. You can tell Butch is pissed about the lack of attendance this season. I'm sure he thought it would be way better, especially after an 8-4 season. Hard to blame him.

I found this article from 2017 that says FIU plays Miami on Sep. 22, 2018:

I've always sensed this throughout the season... a disappointment with attendance. I can't blame him because we all feel the same.

Just hope we keep building off success enough that the birds will start to show up.

^^^^^^

You’re right about attendance. I noticed it also. Ideally students would fill up stadiums but it responsibilities just doesn’t fall on them...the alumni need to show up also. I just hope they get how special BD is to FIU!!!

Completely agree it was great interview. I usually record for those that are not able to watch.

Let’s go 9-4

If we continue to win, especially a bowl game, the fans will come. Imagine a bunch of freshmen coming in, excited about their bowl winning football team. Let's start new next season.

That Palm Beach Post article is dated August 22, Dynasty. The one I dug up was from November 17. We will find out soon enough.
