FIU gets naming rights for the stadium. WTF?!?!?!?

Post

Sorry but this chaps my ass. Our stadium is SO much better then theirs and we cant get this done?


I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Upon further review its just the Field that got named, not the stadium.

Still we REALLY need to get his done. With a bowl game OTW I would think a corporate sponsor would be all over it.

FIU just got a stadium deal done does any one know the details. On how much they got. I wonder if we are close to deal that will go a long way in funding this.

It's a field naming deal, not a stadium naming deal.  It's for 3 years. Sigep77 says something is near, but he is not at liberty to say what at this time.

I couldn't agree with you more… I'm surprised we don't have a few sponsors lined up.

One more thing that bothers me is that FIU has 8 HOME GAMES!!!! 8!!!!! vs our 5!!!!
Why is that?
Why can't we have at least 6 home games.

Garcia is better than Angelo's at scheduling, it'll improve soon now that Chun is in control.

We will end up having six home games per season.

Because FIU has a lot more money than us.  They charge their students a lot for athletic fees (as does FAU), however FIU has a lot more students, so…do the math…they have more money to bring in more teams.

New numbers on the way out…FIU is the FOURTH largest school in the country!!  Literally twice the size of FAU.

They still suck though  :Big-Grin:
