MIAMI, Florida -- The University of Miami is thanking all of the 300 people who showed up to support the Hurricanes Saturday against Bethune-Cookman.

A photo taken by a fan on Twitter showed plenty of empty seats in the stadium when the 'Canes came out of the tunnel and, according to Yahoo! Sports, it didn't get much better as the game went on.

Miami beat Bethune-Cookman 38-10.


Man, when I was in college, Miami was a powerhouse. What's going on?

@Ticomaya,
actually, I'm hoping the canes do well.

so they don't hurt K States strength of schedule with the 'puters...

their coaching is not what it used to be in Miami.

now it's all bluster all the time, and nobody to back up the brash talk...

Excitement for Miami (FL) football’s home opener on Saturday was obviously quelled after a 52-13 shellacking at Kansas State last weekend, but nobody expected the crowd at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday to resemble that of old Florida Marlins games.
As you can see below as the Hurricanes stormed out of the smoke before the opening kickoff against Bethune-Cookman, it appears only a couple thousand fans bothered to show up and watch the first home game of 2012 for one of the most successful college football programs ever.
“The U” averaged 48,654 fans per home game last season and obviously it appears they will get nowhere close to that number this fall.
It will be interesting to see what the official attendance figure turns out to be but it’s certainly not a good sign for how the community is reacting to the ‘Canes falling on hard times with the combination of a 6-6 record last year and the possibility of massive NCAA sanctions on the way for the Nevin Shapiro scandal that was uncovered last year.

@Ticomaya,
Even in the 80's, when UT was doing well to win half their games, or be bowl eligible, we still mostly filled the stadium.

@DrewDad,
My high school used to fill the Orange Bowl. University of Miami kept trying to book it on Thanksgiving Day, but the Orange Bowl Committee chose revenue over higher education.
