Hurricanes Fans for a Hurricanes Stadium

      Rye Brook, NY

The University of Miami lost a grand part of its heritage when the Orange Bowl was destroyed and all the tradition associated with it is at risk of disappearing forever.  The Miami Hurricanes have helped transform the University of Miami into a vibrant institution of excellence.  Without rich traditions it is in danger of becoming a sterile factory of education.  Every major public and private college with a major athletic program has the tradition its students, alumni, faculty and the community will long remember and is engrained in their being.  That tradition is having "gameday" be a ritual where everyone involved can walk through campus to their own stadium.  That tradition is LIVING your alma mater, being an active participant not just a spectator.  The next generation will know nothing of the electricty felt at the Orange Bowl when the team would emerge from the smoke, they will have no traditions because they are going to be at an NFL stadium where the Hurricanes are basically just squatters.  Our students, alumni, faculty and the community DESERVE THEIR OWN TRADITIONS that UF, FSU and now even FAU, UCF and FIU enjoy every home game!!

If you support the idea of a stadium for our Miami Hurricane Football team either on Campus or close by (i.e. Tropical Park) that our Canes can call their own then sign the petition!  An on campus stadium is ideal but won't be easy.  Our students need this, our alumni need this and the community needs this!  It could be the focal point of many great memories for decades to come!!  WE WANT A STADIUM!  If you WANT to see UM build that stadium then sign the petition! SIGN THE PETITION and then tell your friends and family to SIGN THE PETITION!
