As reported by king nerd and ESPN contributor Darren Rovell, Central Florida will be selling on-field suites that are full-blown cabanas behind the end-zone for $22,000 a season. I absolutely love this. Such a Florida move and honestly, it’s probably the only place that could get away with doing it. UNLV might be able to, but that’s beside the point. Cabanas on their own are such a strangely awesome thing. Whenever I see them, I immediately am intrigued. For whatever reason, they scream class to me. Probably because they’re typically expensive as fuck. But the reason I love this addition is that any possible way you can make fans feel comfortable and more at home — especially in that Florida heat — you’ve got to do it. This is a suave move, now they just need a pool. However, from what I’ve read there is a downside. Apparently, the cabanas will go in front of the student section and will obstruct the view for some rows into the end-zone. I am fully against giving the student the short end of the stick in essentially every situation. This one stings because these kids are already broke college students who are just trying to enjoy a game (that they most likely have to pay to be at) and now cannot see past the rich folks in the dope ass cabanas. Solve this issue and I am on the first plane to Orlando to attempt to take out a bank loan and get an LMBF cabana for the 2017 season.
