That 80 yard run is the perfect example of why Walton was the starter last year. He gets hit in the hole for what should have been a two yard gain but he keeps his balance, bounces off the would be tackler and takes it to the house.
Playing a game at their stadium saves the athletic department a bunch of money. Normally a P5 school would have to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars to a sacrificial lamb for a home game. Since those games are traditionally poorly attended, Miami ends up losing money by paying those teams. Offering to play a game at their stadium gets them out of having to pay them money.
It's really pathetic and hopefully the athletic director can schedule some home and home series against better competition but until then we're stuck playing @ App St, AK State and Cincinnatti. These series' were scheduled years ago under a much more frugal budget than what they have right now.
