Hurricane athletic director Kirby Hocutt said Tuesday that UM and Dolphin Stadium are reversing their decision and will place a ''U'' at midfield of Canes games at Dolphin Stadium, just like UM did at the Orange Bowl.

Hocutt said all involved parties had decided -- as reported in Sunday's Miami Herald -- that the ''U'' would not appear at midfield. Dolphin Stadium president Bruce Schulze and UM associate athletic director Jim Frevola said last week that there would be no ''U'' at midfield -- or UM lettering and logos -- in the end zone, because it would be too difficult to switch back and forth between Dolphins and Canes games.

But after UM officials were flooded with complaints, Hocutt (who got 200 e-mails) called Schulze Monday to figure out a way to change that. The solution reached? ''Dolphin Stadium agreed to grow turf on a turf farm that will contain our U that will be painted on it,'' Hocutt said. ``Prior to every game, they will remove the midfield turf and insert the turf with our U painted in it.''

I do not want to start another OCS thread, or anti-glazer thread, but it is interesting how parties can work things out when both parties (Dolphins and Canes) are interested in making it happen.

Miami has bargaining power.  USF doesn't.

The Fins are classy

The Glazers are slime balls.

They've also been playing football for 40 more years than the Dolphins and won more championships .....

We'll see if their "solution" holds up when the 'Phins have to play the day after the 'Canes in the rain and the middle of their field turns into a muck pit. 

If it works, we should try it!

we'll see how this works out as far as the playing surface is concerned.  once it starts to affect the on-field performance of the NFL players you can bet that somethign will change.

Exalt. If the Glazers arent slime balls, then I dont know what or who is. They royally screw us, and USF just takes it in the ass. I dont want to bring up the OCS debate, but USF needs to start considering it and stop doing business with the Glazer mafia.

I think the OB is already gone.  I saw some pictures the other day.  There is a rumor that the Marlins new park will be in that neighborhood.

I'd be curious to see if maybe 500 or 1000 complaint emails to our athletic director would result in us always being guaranteed the iconic U midfield at our games.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
