OXFORD, Ohio -- All-In. It's a phrase that suggests that an individual is doing his best to reach a goal or objective.

For Miami University head football coach Don Treadwell, being "all-in" is his team's way of life. And now that the RedHawk players have bought in, he's asking Miami fans to join the cause.

"We want to be all-in at all times," said Treadwell. "So much of what our players are doing hopefully will be reflected by the enthusiasm of our fans and those who are connected with the Miami football family.

"When you go around to the marquee programs in the country, one of the things you notice right away is a commitment, not by just the performance level of the football team, but also by the fans. Their fans are behind them and that makes a huge difference. We really want to impress upon those who been been connected with Miami's football team in the past that it's time to get off the fence and be all-in at all times.

"We have five home games and it would be awesome to walk into a stadium where you can sense that there's a home-field advantage. More and more people are aware of that now and we're going to continue to spread that message. We've got an exciting team coming back and they'll perform at even a higher level if our fans are enthusiastically behind them."
