Richt will lock up South Florida like he did Georgia.

The facilities are the biggest issue for Miami. Half-empty, soulless stadium 45 minutes form campus is a terrible situation, and they have no indoor practice facility (though there are supposedly plans to build one), which has resulted in losing 15+ days of practice each of the last few seasons. That's a HUGE disadvantage from a player development standpoint, not to mention the terrible comparison to other programs for recruitment.

Donna Shalala as university president was the worst thing that has ever happened to that football program. She couldn't have given two shits about athletics. It remains to be seen how committed the new president is, but the plans for an indoor facility are a good start.
