Hurricanes superfan Uncle Luke rips NCAA for expensive Notre Dame-Miami ticket prices

There’s perhaps no celebrity more affiliated with the Miami Hurricanes than Uncle Luke.

The 2 Live Crew star’s rise to fame coincided with the birth of ”The U” as the premier college football program of the 1980s. Luther Campbell’s edgy style of hip-hop music and the unmatched swagger of the Canes made for a perfect match during that era.

So even three decades later, when the legendary rapper speaks he gets South Florida’s full attention.

ESPN College GameDay is in town this Saturday for the first time since 2006 for what figures to be a riveting next chapter to the Miami-Notre Dame rivalry that Uncle Luke is very familiar with.

Miami (8-0, 6-0) is now No. 7 in the College Football Playoff rankings while Notre Dame (8-1) checks in at No. 3.

As a result, ticket prices have soared on the secondary market for the critical contest, much to the ire of Campbell.

Campbell used it as another example to call out the NCAA for amateur athletes not getting paid.

Campbell then responded to a follower about a solution to the exorbitant ticket prices.

Campbell provided his logic to a follower who disagreed with the premise of paying college athletes.

The topic is one that’s been widely debated for quite some time and certainly isn’t going away.

Notre Dame-Miami is slated for an 8 p.m. (EST) kickoff and will be televised on ABC.
