    In 1926, construction for a temporary 8,000-seat stadium was put on hold after an actual hurricane leveled much of South Florida.
    In 1940, the Hurricanes canceled a game against UCLA because they had two African-Americans on the team. One of those two was Jackie Robinson.
    They canceled a game against Penn State for the same reason (1946).
    It took them over 57 years to win their first national championship.
    They were on the losing end of Doug Flutie’s Boston College ‘Hail Mary’ play that gone down in history as of the best plays ever.
    They’ve been criticized many times for having a weak schedule.
    Michael Vick gave the team a hard time every time he played them.
    They decided to leave the Big East conference for the ACC because there was more money to be made in the ACC.
    When asked why the teams logo is the letter U, players often said ‘U gotta believe’ or ‘U is great.’
    Some of the NFL’s biggest PR problems played for the Hurricanes.
    Miami booster (and Ponzi schemer) Nevin Shapiro claimed to have given millions of dollars in 'illegal benefits' to dozens of Hurricane football players between 2002-10 (August 17, 2011).
    In 1950, they broke the Southern tradition by playing against African-American players.
    In the late 1950's, UM won a battle that would allow African-Americans the right to enter and sit wherever they wanted in the Orange Bowl.
    During the 1960's, the Hurricanes were known as 'The Age of MIRAcles' because George Mira lead them to a pair of bowl games.
    They have great rivalries with Florida State, Florida, Boston College and Virginia Tech.
    Although having a ‘weak’ schedule, they consistently went to the title games and either destroyed the opposition or were in a close and exciting game.
    Some of the best and most talented football players played for the Hurricanes.
    They were robbed of the 2002 national championship after a bonehead ref made an awful call.
    From 1986-2003, NFL teams turned to the Hurricanes more than any other college level team when it came to premium picks. They supplied 58 players in the first three rounds, including three first picks (Vinny Testaverde, Russell Maryland and Andre Johnson).
    Five of their players (Sean Taylor, Kellen Winslow, Jr., Jonathan Vilma, D.J. Williams, Vernon Carey, Vince Wilfork) were taken in the first round of the NFL 2004 draft, which is two better than Ohio State's 3 players and three better than Texas and Arkansas' 2 players each.
