History & Tradition




History & Tradition of "TheU"

The Beginning.....
UM began with just a freshman football team in 1926. Its first game was played on October 23, 1926, a 7-0 win over Rollins College before 304 fans. Under the guidance of head coach Howard Buck, the freshman team posted a perfect 80 record in its inaugural season. Two of the wins were against the University of Havana.one on Thanksgiving Day in Miami and one at Havana on Christmas Day. Miami's last home game at of the season featured a first: the first Hurricane football game played on New Year's Day against Howard at Miami's University Stadium. Around this time, the team adopted the official nickname "Hurricanes," though the exact timing and origin of the name is unclear; some reports suggest it was in reference to the devastating power of the 1926 Hurricanes that postponed the program's first game by a month, and others that it was suggested by a player in response to rumors that university officials wanted to name the team after local flora or fauna.


Traditions

Touchdown Tommy - Touchdown Tommy is the cannon that is fired off when the team runs out of the tunnel, after every point that the Hurricanes score, and the conclusion of a victory. The cannon is kept by the Sigma Chi fraternity's Cannon Master and fired off during the games by the senior brothers of Sigma Chi. Touchdown Tommy is the third oldest tradition at the University of Miami, after the Iron Arrow Head Society and Sebastian the Ibis.


The Smoke - One of the Hurricanes' traditions is the team's 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 consists of fire extinguisher exhaust.Following Miami's rise to prominence in the 1980s, many high school, college and NFL teams over the last 25 years have copied this practice, and in 2001 ABC made a parody of it for a Saturday college football commercial.



Ring of Honor - In 1997, the university established the 'Ring of Honor' as a way to honor outstanding players who have passed through the Hurricane football program. Members are selected by an anonymous advisory committee, the director of athletics and the head football coach.The names and jersey numbers of the inductees were displayed on the upper deck of the Orange Bowl (which has since been torn down). The inaugural class of included Jim Dooley, Ted Hendricks, George Mira, and Vinny Testaverde. These four players are the only ones in the history of the program to have their numbers retired by the university as well.

A second group of players consisting of Ottis Anderson, Don Bosseler, Bernie Kosar, and Burgess Owens was inducted in 1999. After a nine-year hiatus, five new players were added in 2008: Pro Football Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, and Jim Otto, Former-Heisman Trophy-Winner Gino Torretta, running back Edgerrin James and Defensive lineman Cortez Kennedy.

In 2009, College Football Hall of Fame Defensive Back Bennie Blades, running back and former Miami head coach Eddie Dunn and also quarterback Steve Walsh were inducted.

Hurricanes 2010 Season Review




Miami Gardens, Fl
- The Hurricanes finished the regular season with a not so great 7-5 record with losses to rivals Florida, and Virginia Tech, as well as first ever loss to in-state opponent USF in the last game of the season. Shannon was fired by Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt within hours of the loss to USF which ended his four-years with the hurricanes. The canes then went on to lose to Notre Dame in the Sun bowl game on New Year Eve. The loss in the Sun bowl marked the third time in cane history that they had loss three back to back bowl game losses.

Final Farewell, Coach


(Head Coach Randy Shannon Fired)

Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt didn't waste time finding a new head coach for the canes. Enter Al Golden former head coach of the
Temple Owls who says he will bring the canes back to the dominance that they once had before.

"The football program, it's time we put it all together," Golden said.

Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt says Golden was the top choice as soon as their first interview in New York ended early last week. Hocutt and Golden subsequently met in Philadelphia, then had several phone conversations, all culminating in a deal.

"He is the right fit at the right time to lead us back to the pinnacle of the college football world," Hocutt said moments before Golden took the dais.

Golden takes over in much the same manner in which the man he replaces, Randy Shannon, did four years ago - with the Hurricanes seeking a return to national relevance.

Miami hasn't played in the Bowl Championship Series since the 2003 season, and has lost 16 of its last 21 games going back to 2005 against ranked opponents. The Hurricanes thought moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference seven years ago would enhance their chances to remain among the nation's elite; they have yet to even win the league title.

"Win championships. That's my job," Golden said as the room broke into applause.


In Golden We Trust!


(Al Golden New Head Coach)
