I think I heard somewhere a while ago that they haven't left the state of Florida for an out of conference game in something like 20 years.
Truth...last time was in the early 90s vs. Syracuse...I think its a terrible way of scheduling but its something thats unlikely to change in the foreseeable future...
This is an overblown stat because they play FSU in Tallahassee and play UGA at Jacksonville, where the tix are equally divided. How about taking a closer look at someone like ND? They only play 4 true road games this year, and also in future years if I'm not mistaken.
I get that they are playing FSU and Miami most of the time...but come on, 20+ years without an OOC road game that is ridiculous and I hope is something they no longer get away with under the new playoff format.
They major OOC road game in most years is either FSU or Miami, who happens to be in the same state. So what if Tallahassee is in the same state, it's still a very tough road game. Too much is being made of the "state border" part of the schedule.
I get what you're saying but I would just like to see them have to travel a couple thousand miles for a game once in a while. Travel makes the road games much more difficult. Since I don't watch Florida, are the games against the instate teams filled with Gator fans? Because that would make a huge difference too.
The swamp is always full. The florida state game is always full of Noles. Miami has one of the most dedicated followings in the nation. The _ is always full of canes.
I find this hard to believe because their attendance isn't great.
Their fans are about as dedicated to their Canes, as us Allbuffers are dedicated to making jokes about your mom.
Miami does not have one of the most dedicated fanbases in the country. One of the dumbest statements I have seen on this board in a while.
so they used to be pretty dedicated, but not so much anymore. sounds about right.
teets summed my response up perfectly.
You are the dumbest statements I have ever seen on this board.
Yeah I was just curious as to whether a road game to Miami or Florida State was really a road game or just a home game in a different location
On a good day, Miami is playing home games in essentially a neutral environment.
Florida state sells out all the time. Especially against the gators.
Their fanbase isn't that large anymore but people who like Miami, LOVE Miami. They stick to their team.
Miami can be a tough place to play for a big game like FSU or Florida. But for just about anyone else it seems like you can count the number of people in the stands.
what college football team doesn't have fans like that? ****, even csu has fans that LOVE csu.
Not the sharpest fleshlight in in the drawer.
Miami doesn't even sell out their stadium when FSU comes to their place...UF hasn't played there recently but they do next season and I bet the place is at least 50% UF fans at that game...
Gata fans are frontrunners. They were selling their Bama tickets last year (home game) for $10 because they knew they were about to thumped. Outside of FSU I don't remember the last decent OOC team they played.

:wtf: Are you smoking?
FLounder goes full retard again.
Flounder, you have to have seen the movie. Never go full retard. the U has infamously poor fan support.
If they sell out all the time, then it is not especially against the gators.
