The corvette U image from the 60s and 70s then the sucess of the football program really hurt the image of the school. Its always been the red headed stepchild of Florida schools with the big state schools FSU and UF getting all the attention.......UM always seemed to attract way way more kids form the northeast than the big state schools - heck when I was there the joke was it was the U of New Jersey South.
