Miami Hurricanes On The Ground!
The University of Miami has announced it has cancelled plans to fly to two interstate football games, and will charter buses instead. The university's athletic department will save approximately $140,000 by letting the "rubber meet the road". The games are at Central Florida and South Florida. The school has elected to make these cost saving changes in light of the tough economic times the entire country is facing. With all the conference, television, and ticket revenue that major Division 1 schools have pouring in, it sure is encouraging to see an athletic department being so responsible with their dollars. I think that major corporations, not to mention the federal government itself, would be wise to learn a few lessons from the University of Miami.
