How About the Miami Hurricanes?

The Michigan Athletic Department claims there is no truth to the rumor of Georgia being the home opener in a 1 for 1 deal spanning 2010 & 2011.  If that really is the case (and who really knows for sure) then what other teams should be considered?

The Miami Hurricanes could be a good choice on a few fronts.  Obviously, this would be GREAT for our recruiting in the state of Florida.

Miami has been having some attendance woes.  In 2008, they only filled their stadium to 64% capacity on average. 
Michigan, with its large alumni population in Florida, along with it's traveling fan base could virtually insure a sell-out.
Would that sell-out be worth a 2 for 1 deal?  Can't hurt to ask.

The national TV coverage would go without saying.

Would any other teams make sense giving the financial realities?

Where can I comment?
