The Miami sports fan has a bad wrap nationally. The Marlins are routinely at the bottom of MLB’s attendance numbers, the Dolphins fan base doesn’t show unless the team is good, and the same is said for the Miami Hurricanes. Saturday the Canes welcome in Texas A&M in the return game of their home-and-home. Texas A&M got the best of The U last season in a tightly contested matchup the Aggies won. This is arguably Miami’s biggest home game of the season. They host Clemson later in the season, but they lost to Duke. Canes fans should be chomping at the bit to pack Hard Rock Stadium. That’s not happening though. In fact, the school announced this week that they are running a BOGO on tickets for the A&M game.
Miami offering BOGO ticket special. Fans who purchase ticket for Saturday's Texas A&M game ($125 upper deck, $205 lower end zone or $310 club corner) receive free ticket for Georgia Tech game Oct. 7— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) September 6, 2023
This is a bad look for any program. But this is the same program that gave away free tickets with purchase of a Whopper in the 80’s. Texas A&M’s fanbase is one of the more rabid ones in college football. Some have even gone as far as to call them a cult. I’m not saying that, but some are. A&M had an announced attendance of 97,560 for their home opener against New Mexico State. Miami drew just over 49,000 for their home opener against Miami of Ohio. Aggies fans got word of the BOGO sale for one of the biggest games of the weekend and did not pull any punches.
Was just at Publix checking out. My total was $4.14 and the cashier asked if I wanted to round up to the nearest dollar for charity.— Forrest (@SeminoleForrest) September 6, 2023
I said sure, but then she gave me 4 tickets to the Miami-TAMU game. I tried to give them back but then she handed me Miami-GA Tech tickets too...
Miami couldn’t fill UCF’s stadium at 45k, either. Especially vs Villanova. UCF also wouldn’t being doing a bogo deal vs vs a a Top 25 SEC team, even in a 65k seat stadium. Pump the brakes, Miami.— HoorayForEric 😃 (@hoorayforeric) September 7, 2023
Did not expect to see BOGO Miami football tickets while skimming through the weekly Publix ad🤣 pic.twitter.com/zsWNGmWFEn— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) September 6, 2023
I took a look at the rest of the Publix ad. Looks like the Boars Head FireSmith Chicken Whole Sub is on sale, too.
