USF/FIU not sold out after all

According to a Tampa Bay paper

USF's Allen, Bonani earn Big East football honors | Tampa Bay Times

STILL AVAILABLE: Saturday's game at FIU is still not sold out, despite a capacity of just 18,000. FIU said Monday that USF returned about 840 tickets from its allotment, thought to be 2,500 tickets; USF had tickets available Monday night. FIU has only made tickets for the game available by purchasing season tickets.

A buddy of mine has two tickets to the game.  I don't know what he wants for them, but if anyone wants em, PM me and I'll see what I can do.  We're up by tampa though, so it may be a little late to mail them.

FAU - We got Bowls!

If USF couldn't sell 2,500 it might be a bad sign. I don't see FIU filling the other 16,000+ that they will need for a sellout. If they can't come close to a sellout for the opening of a brand new stadium against a top 20 opponent something is wrong.

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!

"To open up a new stadium, on national TV, it's a dream come true for everyone at this university and all our players," said second-year FIU coach Mario Cristobal. "When you drive down the Turnpike, or 836, and you see this big ol' monster sitting in the middle of campus, you understand the direction this program is going."

"Big ol' monster"?  You'd think it was the Rose Bowl.

Hey, good for them.  I'm sure it is a lot more to look at then Lockhart!

I'm sure it's a nice place, but from the pictures I've seen, they need to complete the bowl.  They have one sideline that is from their old stadium.  I think they are building something there for the 2nd phase which is why they left it as is for now.
