Al Golden says winning will bring Hurricanes fans

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Attendance has been an issue for the Miami Hurricanes, but head coach Al Golden insists that will fall into place if the team does its job on the field.

Head coach Al Golden says his Miami Hurricanes will draw decent crowds at Sun Life Stadium, so long as his team keeps winning.

The Hurricanes have drawn crowds that are reported as leaving the home of the Miami Dolphins as half-empty - for the home opneer against Bethune-Cookman, recorded attendance was 39,435 in the 75,540-seat stadium - but a glance around at game time made it appear as if there were significantly less fans. Golden isn't worried about the attendance issue - rather, his team's performance on the field:

"I think we've got to get back to being the type of team that Floridians and the Miami faithful are accustomed to being and get back to that standard," Golden said. "Once we do that, the rest will take care of itself. We have a great stadium."

Miami is 2-0 in the ACC and hosts North Carolina State on Saturday, so they've been holding up their part of the bargain, although it does pale in comparison to the national championship teams of the 1980's and early 2000's.
