welcome to the boards. +1 first post
I'm from Massachusetts, 26 years old. I think it's funny that out of everyone who posted on this thread, I've followed Miami for the least amount of time. 2005 was when it started, my freshman year at UM. I was a big college football fan dating back to like 1997, just never really had one specific team that I was deep into.
From Alabama I'm 25 now living in Shreveport, Louisiana and became a canes fan around 2000-2001 when I saw Willis McGahee in a Syracuse games running all over those clowns...5 TD's in the 1st half..WOW
From Jacksonville, Fl, 27, I became a fan when I was ten because my grandmother bought me a Hurricanes hat at Winn Dixie. All of my family are UF and FSU fans as well as most my friends and I wanted to go against the grain so I went with the team on the hat. I didn't follow the program that close for a few more years but it was my team. The first game that I really sat down and watched was Edgerrin's UCLA domination and I've followed em close ever since. I still have the hat, my son wears it in this pic.

Polk County, F-L-A (Bartow)
i have a cousin from a city called Thomasville GA by the name of "Charlie Ward" who so happened to come to Bartow on a bye week to see my great aunt with my uncle rod. I so happened to be wearing a cane T with the ibis smoking a pipe and a bandage on his face. As reserved and mild mannered he is he was talking trash to me despite i was only 9 years old and my brother joined the bandwagon and that made it official i will forever be a black sheep and be anti-nole/gator FOREVER!!!!!
I could really eloborate and go into to depth but i dont want to take CHAMP'S spot
"Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeeeelll what the Link is cookin"
31 Originally from Louisiana live in st Pete. I started liking the canes when I got a hat and t shirt for Christmas in 93 however I became a die hard when I saw my first game which happened to be the game where edge rushed for 299 yards. Been hooked since.

Brian 26, from New Jersey and I used to be a Florida fan until I saw the U play VTech. Kenny Kelly was the QB and Clinton Portis was a freshman. I liked the jerseys and then I watched the game and I've been rockin with the U ever since. Even though they lost the game.
Born in Fort Lauderdale (Broward General). Raised in Plantation (South Plantation HS). I remember being about nine years old (1974) and I found a large 1973 University of Miami Football media guide at a car dealer. The ownership said I could have it. Until then, I had never heard of the "U". I have followed them ever since. I joined the Air Force in 1984. Listened to the UM vs. Penn State Fiesta Bowl game (1986-87) in the middle of the night in England while standing on my patrol vehicle trying to get the Armed Forces Radio feed from the continent on a handheld radio. In 1990, I received a scholarship that allowed me to go to Miami for the last 2.5 years toward my undergrad. Currently live in Springfield, VA. Go Canes!
