    I know it is a small school but every time I watch the Canes play a home game there is about 20,000 fans in the stadium.

    When they played FSU- FSU always has more fans.
    Why doesn't anyone ever go to their football games.
    Class of 2010, Aerospace Engineering here.

    I can tell you ever since the move to Sun Life Stadium fan and student attendance has steadily dropper for a number of factors.

    1. And probably the most obvious one, team has been in steady decline since 2003, although it seems things are turning around. Miami is full of fair weather fans, and a small hand full of die hards. Same goes for the Phins, Heat, Marlins etc.... (UM season ticket holder since '98)

    2. Move to Sun Life Stadium cut off public transport access to the games. In the old days with the Orange Bowl all you have to do was hop on the Metro down to Culmer and a 5 min bus ride drops you off infront of the stadium. Now, you have to drive 30-45 minutes north (from campus), traffic, parking etc etc... Metro days had to be the best times, get liquored up on campus, drunk as a skunk on the metro, singing the fight songs!

    3. Just like alot of other teams, the economy has not been gentle on the fan base. Its obviously cheaper to sit at home in the AC, couch, cheap beer than spend $30 parking, $8 beer etc etc....

    In addition, one must remember that UM is only comprised of 10,000 students. FSU/UF/USF has over 30,000+

    On the flip side, UF and FSU have stadium on campus and both universities are basically located in cities that only exist because of the university or "college town". So on game day, the only thing to do is go to the game. Unlike say, Miami.

    Look at Alabama, Nebraska, Michigan etc....

    I've been to numerous UM/FSU ganes and there are way more cane fans. Orange seats with people wearing orange jerseys might make it seem like that.

    Love your nice attempt at a troll too. You do realize that in the next 5 years FSU will be a top 25 nationally ranked school with the bill that was just signed right?

    This thread went about as well as I had hoped.

    J comes in being the master Gator basher doing his thing proper.

    Gator fans throwing stones. Its going to be a fun season with several Canes and several Gators on the team. The players will have fun with it and we most certainly will as well.

    PHINS UP!!!!

    In all seriousness, what is the history of the Gator/Canes rivalry? I know the Canes own FSU so I dont need to ask about that one.

    The words FSU and nationally ranked school should never be used in the same sentence.

    Back when those games mattered the Canes OWNED Florida St. Thats what counts to me.

    I remember watching those games in the early 90's. Wide right.

    FSU is and always will be the state wide safety school.

    What do FSU, UF, and UM students have in common?

    They all got into FSU.
