With Butch, don't expect many schools to schedule us unless they are the other 3. I don't think that FSU has a vendetta towards us, if you remember they came down to play us in basketball. The issue with FSU is demand from other schools that have been scheduling them and are at a closer location. Believe me, as a Cane I kinda feel weird defending FSU, but its true lol. In Miami's case FIU works perfectly for them because 1. its only 8 miles away 2. Its not an FCS team 3. It looks good for both schools to play each other because it shows good sportsmanship between both Miami Dade universities and also brings more $ to see a derby between both schools. http://tkt.xosn.com/PhotoAlbum.dbml?DB_ ...

As for Florida? They been suckling in football and pretty much a basketball school this year. Will we play each other in the future? Probably, but not a priority and I prefer to keep that way ( I am not a big fan of the gators, at least the noles play us).
I think in this new era, we do have to amp up our presence and become not become the second team. Every one preaches that we need to be the UCLA of the east then lets act like it.
