Florida International University Games Will Be More Quiet Next Season

WEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. – There will be no marching band or cheerleaders at Florida International University football games this coming season. FIU is no longer funding the band or cheerleaders.

The university blamed the economy for the cuts. It reportedly costs more than $200,000 to fund the band and $25,000 to maintain a cheerleading program.

FIU's dance team, the Golden Dazzlers, will stay.

The cuts come after FIU spent millions on a new stadium for the football team, and hired high-profile basketball coach Isiah Thomas.

I would say I feel bad for them, but then I would be lying lol

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
