Sign me up for this game! Even though I have no idea why they would play it at Yankees Stadium. People in New York don't even know they play football in college.


CORAL GABLES — Miami has entered talks about playing a football game at Yankee Stadium in 2013.

Hurricanes athletic director Kirby Hocutt met with the Yankees on Tuesday about the possibility. Miami already has five home and five road games scheduled for that year, leaving two slots on its schedule.

The Hurricanes plan to host longtime rival the Florida Gators on Sept. 7, 2013. Miami is scheduled to visit the South Florida Bulls on Nov. 30 of that year in Tampa, Fla., the Yankees’ spring training home.

“I think it’s great for college football and the University of Miami,” Miami coach Randy Shannon said Wednesday. “You play teams outside of the conference a lot ... and it’s an opportunity for us to be in the Northeast, which is a big University of Miami alumni base area.”

Shannon said the school is “going through negotiations” with teams looking to find an opponent for the Yankee Stadium matchup.

Miami played in the old Yankee Stadium in 1962, losing to Nebraska in what was the final edition of the Gotham Bowl.

I find it amusing they have a quote from Randy Shannon about the game in 2013. It's on par with Charlie Weis talking last year about the Army-Notre Dame game to be played this year. No fucking way Shannon lasts that long in Miami. I have a better chance of catching gonorrhea from Derek Jeter's jock strap than Shannon lasting to the year 2013.
