UM is the one avoiding the UF.<quoted text>meaningless game NIT= Not In Tournamnet get some balls and play us in football EVERY year, chickenshiit
In 1991, the SEC decided to expand to 12 teams and promptly invited UM and FSU to join in.
FSU refused, joining instead the All Cupcake Conference. Saint Bobby was honest enough to say that the SEC was a “tough” conference.
UM also declined, joining instead the Big Least Conference, which included at the time legendary college football powers like Rutgers and Temple.
Co-caines excuse was that they wanted to “upgrade” their basketball program, although during their tenure in the Big Least and subsequently in the ACC, they never reached the Sweet 16. The real reason was that they remembered numerous thrashings received from SEC schools, like in 1944 when Auburn rushed for 480 yards.
Later the Big Least started to become tougher, so the co-caines promptly fled to the All Cupcake Conference. However, UM football program’s collapse was such that they could not even handle their conference little sisters.
UM could have played UF every year but took the easy way out. Note that when UF dropped them, they did not line up another SEC school.
