It’s not often when your starting QB says he’d rather play road games over home games but Miami starter Tyler Van Dyke said just that.

“We don’t really have that much of a college atmosphere because we play at Hard Rock. We’re about 25 minutes away from campus so a lot of students don’t go up and watch the game, unless it’s a big game. But that’s why I like going into away stadiums and seeing that college atmosphere and playing there and making the crowd quiet.” There have been talks about The U getting their own stadium closer to campus, hopefully to create that college style atmosphere, but nothing has been officially announced.
