Few things in sports get the the eyes of a nation on them when teams match up: Yankees Red Sox, North Carolina- Duke basketball and Miami-Florida State football.
These past few weeks have been filled with talks of the next round of conference realignment . USC and UCLA to the Big 10 and rampant rumors about where will Miami be when the music stops this time around at the musical chairs of conferences.
A true reality we may face is no longer having Miami-FSU on a yearly basis . What happens if that is the end result.
For me I would equate it similarly to Christmas without a Santa Claus. We’ve already seen rivalries thrown aside in the name of greed . Texas-Texas AM, Pittsburgh- West Virginia, and Oklahoma- Nebraska. I’d for one , would like to see us avoid this fate for Miami/FSU.
Rivalries are the heartbeat of sports and part of what makes sports a passion for many . Let’s not lose a key part of this Miami football passion.
