    Miami vs. UF Series

    I recently came across why Miami & UF stopped the yearly game in 1987. First of all Spurrer wanted to continue the series as did Miami, however, the SEC added a 6th game (I think it was a home game) & UF had to choose between keeping Miami or FSU and UF felt they had more in common or interest...

    I was looking thru some football items that my late husband had of the Univ. of Miami football where he played from 1957 - 61. Curci was the QB & Jim Otto, center. (00 for the Raiders). I came across an interesting attendance page that gave the stats for Miami's away games in 1959. Actually...

    The CAT

    The best action including plan and result that occurred at our miserable Miami vs. Appalachian State game this past Friday was the heroic save in an American Flag of a stray cat who somehow ended up on the top tier of the stadium hanging on by his/her paws. She/he subsequent fell into a large...

    Any Ophthalmologists on the board

I am scheduled to have a Gundersen procedure on my left (blind) eye Jan. 13th. I google enough to be dangerous but what I understand is that membrane is taken from the upper...

    Do you get the flu shot?

    Wondering how many of you get the flu shot annually? I do 'cause I am old and subject to get anything going around, but some don't think it does any good or even gives them the flu. I worked in the health care field and it was mandatory. I also have gotten the pneumonia shot, pertussin shot...

    Attendance down for college football

    Congrats from a Cane

    Congrats on your win. My mojo & juju nearly worked but the Gators were the better team. Geez, had Baxa made that field goal there would have been only 1 point difference. I thought Miami looked better than I had anticipated. Hopefully our OL will improve as I don't think they can get too...

    War Canoe

    Obviously, the canoe has collected a lot of dust while in UM care... Ghosts of the Orange Bowl Yesterday at 11:46 AM Miami Sports Hall of Fame, where it has resided since 1989. The canoe was retired after the 1987 game when the annual rivalry ended. The canoe was hand-carved by Seminole...

    The Canes or Butters?

    The Canes play your former great coach's (Butters) team, Central Michigan. Who do you want to win or perhaps I should say who do you dislike the most?

    % of Blue Chip players

    Miami just moved (2019)into this category of over 50% of blue chip players (50.6%) (4 to 5 star). Alabama has around 77% in comparison but interesting is the fact that FSU has over 60%. Not sure of UF's percentage. While the higher the percent, the better the chance for a NC, however, I don't...
