    The football program will never be better than what it has been for the last 10 years without a change in the administration. If you're fine with that, that's cool. If you disagree then I'll ask the obligatory why.

    Other than that, Miami signed another high ranked class where the biggest recruits will most likely disappoint over the course of their careers and the role players will be that or worse.

    Thoughts?

    Smaller ucf style stadium for a long term goal for footall.

    I think focusing more on becoming a big time basketball program needs to happen. Take advantage of bron bron and the heat being in the area.

    You're in the ACC and you wanna be a basketball school now? Good luck with that.

    I don't want anything technically. I have no say in any of this. Miami is a basketball school now based on my view of its present and future.

    I would prefer that Miami be a dominant football program but ultimately it doesn't matter. It is what it is at this point. When Larranaga leaves, there should be no faith in the Miami administration to hire an equivalent hc. 'Naga was blind luck or some other miracle occurrence.

    More rumblings about the possibility of moving to Beckham's new MLS stadium whenever he gets it built:

    There is a good joke in here about the canes only being able to fill a 25k seat soccer stadium, but I'm only able to make this lame one

    Pay a ridiculous amount of money to get out of the 18 years left on the Dolphins Stadium lease, move into a relatively smaller soccer stadium, most likely without doing the due diligence and oversight necessary to insure that the stadium will be the best football/soccer stadium that it can be, and just ignore that almost every aspect of the football program is second rate or worse when compared to the top college football programs. That sounds like just the ineptly stupid thing that the UM administration would do.

    Anyway it's never happening. Beckham's group is trying to draw local support for a new stadium somewhere. Once his group realizes that the vast majority of people in the shit South Florida region don't care about Miami at all then these bullshit rumors will die out.

    Miami's best bet for a new or vastly improved football stadium are the Dolphins building one. Miami's best bet for a football program that isn't mediocre as fuck is a new administration and a new BOT. I have a better chance of getting hit by lightning while free falling from an open air commercial flight collision.

    Haha, I can tell this thread is just going to be a barrel of laughs. ;)

    I would much prefer UM to play in a 40,000 seat stadium somewhere near the city of Miami rather than stay out there at Sun Life.

    Not sure if sharing with the MLS team is going to work for Miami. 25,000 is probably the max capacity that stadium should be (most stadiums in the league are around 20,000).

    25,000 is too small for FBS also.

    Miami would do well to have a 45-50K stadium near campus. That way it will appear to be full even when 35,000 people show up.

    Former Cane JoJo Nicolas died in a car crash this morning. RIP.

    *Scratch that, apparently he's still fighting.
