History

The Beginning (1926-1936)

Before competition even took place on a freshman level, plans for a 50,000-seat on-campus stadium were proposed in 1926 by the school's first president, Bowman Foster Ashe. Work began on a temporary, 8,000-seat structure on campus, but one day later, on September 17, 1926, a hurricane leveled much of South Florida, killing more than 130 people, damaging over 10,000 homes and shelving plans for the stadium. From 1926 to 1937 the University of Miami played in a stadium near Tamiami Park and also at Moore Park until Burdine Stadium (later named the Miami Orange Bowl) was built.

While NCAA probation kept UM out of possible bowls for three years (1954-56), it did not diminish interest in the program. A No. 9 ranking by both UP and INS in 1954 marked UM's first Top 10 ranking at the end of the season. In 1956, on the strength of an 8-1-1 mark, the Hurricanes finished sixth in all three wire service polls. Standouts like All-American fullback Don Bosseler, and future 'Canes Head Coach and All-American quarterback Fran Curci, helped usher UM out of the 1950s and into the new decade.

The Charlie Tate Era (1964-1970)

The death of Jack Harding in March of 1963 prompted Gustafson to step down as football coach and take over athletic director duties after the 1963 season. After a national search, UM tabbed Georgia Tech assistant and former Miami prep coach Charlie Tate as head man in early 1964. And after two years at .500 under Tate, another star emerged to lead UM to back-to-back bowl games.

While many ground-breaking strides were made by the U of M in the '50's and early 60's with respect to desegrigation, it wasn't until December of 1966 that UM signed an African-American athlete, Ray Bellamy, a 6-5, 210-pound wide receiver from Palmetto, Florida, who chose Miami over Florida State, Florida A&M and a number of major colleges in the Midwest. Miami became the first major college in the Deep South with an African-American football player on scholarship, and Bellamy became a standout both on and off the football field. Tom Sullivan, a tailback from Jacksonville, became the second African-American signee in 1968 and was followed one year later by future pro stars Burgess Owens and Chuck Foreman.

The most pivitol recruit during the Charlie Tate area was Ted Hendricks, nicknamed "The Mad Stork", who was signed by the Hurricanes and quickly became one of the most feared pass rushers in college football. As the school's first and only three-time All-American (1966-1968), the late George Gallet, UM's sports publicist for more than four decades, rated Hendricks the greatest player in the University's history. Theodore (Ted) Paul Hendricks (born November 1, 1947 in Guatemala City, Guatemala) was an American football linebacker for the 1969 to 1973 Baltimore Colts (now Indianapolis Colts), 1974 Green Bay Packers and the 1975 to 1983 Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders. ...


Following a Liberty Bowl berth in 1966 and a 1967 trip to the Bluebonnet Bowl, Tate's program fell on hard times. Lackluster seasons in 1968 and 1969 prompted his resignation as coach and athletic director two games into the 1970 season.

The 1970s

Miami spent the next two seasons under "The Little General", former Hurricane All-America quarterback Fran Curci. His teams suffered through a pair of losing campaigns, the second of which was topped off by one of the school's most infamous gridiron incidents. After three games in 1972, the Hurricanes were winless and playing at home against Tulane when a fifth down play gave Miami a 24-21 win.

But Elliott continued UM's merry-go-round of coaches, staying two years and compiling a combined mark of 11-11. Both seasons started off with big wins over ranked foes, but each time disaster struck in the form of losses to lesser opponents. Besides declining attendance, another factor haunting the program was the loss of area blue-chip players to recruiters around the country.


When Ernie McCoy retired as athletic director in 1975, Elliott resigned as head coach to replace McCoy. Offensive coordinator Carl Selmer immediately signed a five-year contract, becoming UM's fifth head coach in six years.


Selmer lasted two seasons, compiling dismal 2-8 and 3-8 records against some of the nation's stiffest competition.

Near the end of the 1976 season, Dr. John L. Green, UM executive vice president who oversaw athletics, decided to make a coaching change. When the news leaked out to the local media, Green decided to contact Selmer in Houston where UM was preparing for the season finale. Selmer was located at The Summit, where the team was watching a pro hockey game and was told he had been terminated. It marked the only time a UM football coach has been fired.

The Lou Saban Era (1977-1978)

On December 27, 1976, journeyman Lou Saban began his two-year tenure as head coach, and in that span laid the foundation for the program's rise to national prominence in the 1980s.

Despite several major setbacks before he even coached his first game (including coronary by-pass surgery), Saban was in Miami for the final week of pre-season practice. His team performed well in the opener, a 10-0 loss at Ohio State. But UM lost the last six games of the year for a 3-8 record. The Ohio State Universitys intercollegiate sports teams and players are called the Buckeyes (after the state tree, the Buckeye), and participate in the NCAAs Division I in all sports and the Big Ten Conference in most sports. ...


Searching for quality players, Saban and his coaching staff went on a recruiting blitz of the East Coast, Midwest and the state of Florida in the winter of 1977-78. UM signed the maximum 30 players that year, including 19 from Florida, in what was perhaps the school's first great recruiting class. A total of six first-team Class AAAA all-state Floridians were in that group, and 11 players went on to professional football.

The Howard Schnellenberger Era (1979-1983)

After taking the job, Schnellenberger spoke in front of countless alumni groups and rotary clubs to extol his vision of a National Championship within the next five years, a claim that no one took seriously at the time.


The integral step in Schnellenberger's rebuilding project was the implementation of a pro-style passing offense that would give the Hurricanes an edge over schools that were unaccustomed to defending it. The new offense received a boost a year before Schnellenberger's arrival when Lou Saban recruited blue chip QB Jim Kelly out of Pennsylvania. Miami offered Kelly the chance to be a QB, while other schools like Penn State wanted him to play linebacker.

The Hurricanes made great progress in the next three years. In 1980, Miami finished the regular season 8-3 while earning its first bowl appearance since 1966.

1983 National Championship

Miami entered the 1983 season with a number of question marks. The most glaring of those question marks was the quarterback position.

The Jimmy Johnson Era (1984-1988)

In the aftermath of Miami's national championship, Schnellenberger elected to take a head coaching job with the Washington Federals of the USFL. Miami Athletic Director Sam Jankovich scrambled to find a replacement for coach Schnellenberger on short notice.

The hiring of coach Johnson was met with a chorus of "Jimmy Who?" by local alumni, fans and media, as well as Schnellenberger's assistants who partially resented Johnson for being selected over someone from within the program.


In Johnson's first game at the helm, the Hurricanes faced off against preseason #1 Auburn in the Kickoff Classic at Giants Stadium in the Meadowlands. The game had several interesting subplots.

After dropping a game at Michigan, Miami regrouped to win 6 of their next 7 games before playing in two of the most improbable games in college football history in consecutive contests. The Hurricanes jumped out to a 31-0 halftime lead in their November 10 game against Maryland before allowing the Terrapins to score 42 points in the second half in the largest comeback in the history of college football.

A Willis McGahee touchdown run brought the Hurricanes within 3 points by the beginning of the fourth quarter. On third down a catch by Chris Gamble was ruled incomplete due to his being out of bounds.

However, the national championship would not last long, as Big12 official Terry Porter (seconds after signaling that the pass was incomplete) threw a penalty flag and made a pass interference call on Miami cornerback Glenn Sharpe.

The Buckeyes scored a touchdown on their possession in the second overtime to take a 31-24 lead. Miami then drove to the Ohio State 2 but were held to one yard on their next three plays. Facing a fourth-and-goal from the Ohio State goal line, Miami called a pass play. The Hurricane offensive line was unable to pick up the blitz. Dorsey’s heaved a desperation pass into the end zone toward Andre Johnson. The ball fell helplessly to the turf. The loss was Larry Coker's first in 25 games as Miami's head coach.

The 2005 Season ushered in the long-awaited debut of Kyle Wright as Miami's starting quarterback, although the much-ballyhooed Wright would struggle with consistency during the season with much of Miami's success that year fueled by their defense. After suffering a heartbreaking loss to archrival Florida State after placekick holder Bryan Monroe bobbled the snap for what would have been a game-tying field goal attempt, Miami would rattle off eight straight wins, including a road win over 3rd-ranked Virginia Tech, only to stumble two weeks later against underdog Georgia Tech. The 2nd conference loss of the season bounced Miami out of a place in the inaugural ACC Championship game and left them with another invite to the Peach Bowl, where they faced LSU and suffered the worst bowl loss in school history, 40-3.

Move to Dolphin Stadium

In the summer of 2007, Miami announced that, beginning with its 2008 season, its team will play its home games at Dolphin Stadium. 2007 will mark UM's final season of football at the Orange Bowl. The move to Dolphin Stadium was approved by the university's Board of Trustees, on the recommendation of UM President Donna Shalala, on August 21, 2007.[12] Interior of Dolphin Stadium, football configuration Dolphin Stadium (previously known as Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium[1], and Dolphins Stadium) is a football, lacrosse, soccer and baseball stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, a suburb north of Miami. ...

Due to the deteriorating condition of the Orange Bowl there had been much speculation in recent years over the venue's continued viability as Miami football's home stadium. With an on-campus stadium not practical due to substantial opposition from neighboring home owners in Coral Gables, the university was left with two options: move north to state-of-the-art Dolphin Stadium in Miami Gardens, which serves as home to the NFL's Miami Dolphins, or renovate the decaying Orange Bowl, adding more restrooms and a video replay screen and making assorted repairs to the stadium infrastructure.

Opponents of the move to Dolphin Stadium cited the Orange Bowl's immense history, its closer proximity to the university, the home field advantage provided by its acoustics, and the Hurricanes status as the facility's sole major tenant. Proponents of the move cited the extra $2 to $5 million in annual revenue the university would earn at Dolphin Stadium, the presence of some of the world's largest high definition video replay screens, the stadium's modern amenities and vast parking area, and the appeal to recruits of playing their home games in a state-of-the-art NFL stadium [citation needed].

The new venue will retain Hurricane traditions. Players will continue to enter the field through a smoke-filled tunnel, Miami and ACC logos will be prevalent on the field of play and throughout the stadium, the Ring of Honor will cover the stadium facade on gameday, and 'Touchdown Tommy' (a small cannon) will still be fired when UM scores. The decision to move the home field of the Hurricanes, however, is continuing to meet opposition from many Hurricane fans and a campaign to preserve the Hurricanes' affiliation with the Orange Bowl is ongoing and intensifying.

One of Shannon's first moves as the Hurricanes' head coach was to have the last names of players removed from jerseys, which is highly unusual in Division I collegiate football. Opponents of the move felt it shied from tradition and made the players more difficult to identify. Proponents of the move would argue that in doing so, Shannon is removing the "individuality" of the players, leaving them with only a "team-first" focus [13].

Florida

Main article: War Canoe Trophy

Miami's rivalry with Florida dates all the way back to 1938, when the Hurricanes defeated the Gators, 19-7, in the first meeting between the geographic rivals. The Seminole War Canoe was carved in 1950 out of a cypress struck by lightning and was given to the winner of the annual meeting. The canoe is meant to symbolize the fighting spirit of the Seminole people that is often on display during games between the Hurricanes and Gators. The War Canoe Trophy was hand carved by Seminole Indians from a 200 year old cypress tree that was struck by lightning. ...

Miami holds the edge in the all-time series with a 28-25 record against Florida. The two schools met every year from 1944 until 1987, but have not played regularly since then. Florida canceled the annual rivalry after the SEC announced the addition of an extra conference game. Nevertheless, the rivalry remains incredibly intense, with many Hurricane fans still considering Florida a more "hated" rival than Florida State. Miami has won the last six meetings between the schools dating back to 1986, including victories in the 2001 Sugar Bowl and the 2004 Peach Bowl. The next matchup is scheduled for the 2008 season.

Traditions

The Smoke

One of the Hurricanes' most recognizable traditions is its dramatic entrance scene. The team enters the field through a large cloud of white smoke billowing from its entrance tunnel, amid a tape of a hurricane blasting over the sound system. The smoke comes from a series of pipes welded together by school transportation director Bob Nalette in the 1950s and comprised simply of fire extinguisher exhaust.

1980s-1990s: Extra benefits, Pell Grant scandal, and NCAA sanctions

In 1994, Tony Russell, a former University of Miami academic advisor, pleaded guilty to helping more than 80 student athletes, 57 of whom were football players, falsify Pell Grant applications in exchange for kickbacks from the players themselves. The scandal dated all the way back to 1989 and secured more than $220,000 in federal grant money. In late 1995, the NCAA concluded that, in addition to the fraudulent Pell Grants facilitated by Mr. Russell, the university had also provided or allowed over $400,000 worth of other, improper payments to Miami football players. The NCAA also found that the university had failed to wholly implement its drug testing program, and permitted three football student-athletes to compete without being subject to the required disciplinary measures specified in the policy. Finally, the NCAA concluded, the university had lost institutional control over the football program.[18] Miami lost seven scholarships as a result of a self-imposed sanction in 1995, and another 24 scholarships were disallowed by the NCAA over the next two years, but Miami avoided the so-called "death penalty." As a result of the scandal, Sports Illustrated in the summer of 1995 argued in a controversial cover story that Miami should shut down its football program.[19] Year 1994 (MCMXCIV) The year 1994 was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by the United Nations. ...

Miami Hurricanes football - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2355 words)
Miami finished the regular season at 9-2 (6-2 ACC), ranked #9 in both polls, and received an invitation to return to the Peach Bowl to face the 10th-ranked LSU Tigers.
With Miami failing to win a conference championship or go to a BCS bowl the last two years and not having won a national championship since 2001, it is widely assumed that Coker will be on the hot-seat in 2006 if he does not take Miami to a BCS bowl.
Miami lost seven scholarships as a result of a self-imposed sanction in 1995 and another lost another 24 from the NCAA over the next two years as a result of the scandal.
