Buffalo Wild Wings Coaches Campus Tour - Round Two
Feb. 13, 2012
CORAL GABLES, Fla. –Miami coaches Jim Larranaga and Katie Meier were joined by a handful of Miami basketball players as they stormed the dorms in the second installment of the Buffalo Wild Wings Coaches Campus Tour Monday night.
In an effort to rally fans before big upcoming games against North Carolina (Feb. 15), Wake Forest (Feb. 18) and Florida State (Feb. 19), the group interacted with UM students, passed out rally towels and T-shirts, and served Buffalo Wild Wings food to UM students at the Mahoney/Pearson Residence Hall, then the Eaton, Stanford and Hecht Residence Halls.
“We are trying to grow our support one fan at a time,” said Coach Larranaga. “We want to get a new fan every day, every week, every month. By reaching out to the students, faculty and administration on campus, we can start to build that fan base. We’re also reaching out to children, parents and alumni in the Coral Gables and Miami communities.”
Sebastian the Ibis, the UM spirit team, members of Category 5 and Storm Surge also tagged along as the teams encouraged students to “Stand with the U.” Buffalo Wild Wings was present with promotional items and food.
