just wonder if they have a team, club team or any Soccer program at Miami Univesity.
If you mean the Univeristy of Miami in Coral Gables FL, then they don't have one (they do have woman's squad). But I would imagine if they did the ACC would be a super conference in which to play. I guess that they would bring a style not like many of the other current ACC teams. Will Title ix make them drop men's gymnastics and fencing (TIC)?
Re: Re: What kind of Soccer program they got at Miami University?
If you mean Miami University in Ohio, they dropped the men's sport several years ago. Soccer is only a club sport now.
I mean Miami in Florida,
if anybody can afford a soccer program they can
One would think.
Maybe they can just buy Florida International and use their team!
I don't mean buy FIU's soccer team, buy the whole damn university, merge it with University of Miami and then keep their sports. Some, like basketball and football will be duplicative but it would give Miami a great soccer tradition and coach and merged with Miami's money, the South Florida location and entrance to the ACC, would make them very much a power to be reckoned with.
This that ain't likely to happen, we have to U of M chooses to add soccer. The only way I see that happen is if they need to add some non revenue sports to be in compliance with the ACC.
The Hurricanes would never buy FIU.
They'd get a booster to buy it for them. Probably throw in a weekend in Vegas and a car.
