The Miami Hurricanes, of Coral Gables, Florida, (known informally as The U, UM or UMiami) are the varsity sports teams of the University of Miami. They compete in the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). The university fields 15 athletic teams for 17 varsity sports.[3] Men's teams compete in baseball, basketball, cross-country, diving, football, tennis, and track and field. Women's teams compete in basketball, cross-country, swimming and diving, golf, rowing, soccer, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. UM has approximately equal participation by male and female varsity athletes in these sports.[4]

Team colors are green, orange, and white. The school mascot is Sebastian the Ibis. The ibis was selected as the school's mascot because, according to university legend, it is the last animal to flee an approaching hurricane and the first to reappear after the storm, making it a symbol of leadership and courage. The school's athletics logo is a simple green and orange, color of an orange tree, letter "U." The school's marching band is the Band of the Hour.

History

Aside from being an independent in baseball, the Hurricanes were a full member of the Big East Conference from 1991 to 2004. In 2004, the school became a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

Rivalries

Miami's traditional athletic rivals include the Seminoles of Florida State University[5] and the Gators of the University of Florida.[6] The Hurricanes have played more football games against the Seminoles (60) than against any other opponent (Florida being second with 55 games); the series began in 1951, and has been played annually since 1969. The teams only bowl meeting was the 2004 Orange Bowl, prior to Miami leaving the Big East Conference to join the Atlantic Coast Conference (in which Florida State has been a member since 1992.) As of the 2015 meeting, the Hurricanes hold a 31–29 series lead against the Seminoles.[7]

The Hurricanes first played the Gators in football in 1938; and the teams played annually (except in 1943 when Florida didn't field a team due lack of players due to WWII) until 1987. Since then, Miami and Florida have met only six times (four during the regular season in 2002, 2003, 2008, and 2013, and in two bowl games: the 2001 Sugar Bowl and the 2004 Chick-fil-A Bowl). The Hurricanes and the Gators last scheduled meeting was the game in Miami on September 7, 2013. As of the fall of 2013, Miami holds a 29–26 series lead against Florida.[8][9]

Teams

The University of Miami sponsors teams in seven and a half* men's and ten women's NCAA sanctioned sports:[10]
  • * = Under the NCAA's "gender equity" provisions for balancing the number of athletic scholarships awarded to men and women at schools sponsoring football, Miami not only fields more teams for women than for men, but it has only a diving team for men, while having a swimming and diving team for women; with the reduction in scholarships, the men's diving team is counted as only half of a team by the NCAA.

Baseball

UM has won four national championships (1982, 1985, 1999 and 2001) and reached the College World Series 22 times in the 34 seasons since 1974. Five UM graduates are currently active on MLB teams.require('Module:No globals')

The team is currently coached by Ron Fraser was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in July 2006. The team plays its games on the UM campus, in Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field. Morris' contract as coach has been extended through 2015. Morris has established a record of 850–344–3 (.711) in 19 seasons at Miami. His teams reached the College World Series in his first six seasons at UM, an NCAA record.[11] The Mascot for the baseball team is The Miami Maniac.

Miami holds the longest consecutive post season appearance streak at 42 consecutive years (1973–2014). This streak is the longest of any men's NCAA Div. 1 major sport, topping the football post season streak of 35 seasons (Nebraska 1972–2006) and the basketball streak of 27 seasons (North Carolina 1974–2001).

Men's basketball

The BankUnited Center on the University of Miami campus is the home arena of the Hurricanes' men's and women's basketball teams.

The Miami Hurricanes men's basketball team has produced three players who are currently on NBA rosters. Rick Barry, who played his collegiate basketball at UM, is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame. Barry is the Hurricanes' only consensus All-American in basketball and led the nation in scoring his senior year with a 37.4 average during the 1964–65 campaign. The team plays its home games at the BankUnited Center on the University of Miami's Coral Gables campus.

The Board of Trustees attempted to shut the program down in the middle of the 1970 season, which forced

Notable alumni

The Class of 2012 includes football's Ed Reed, Bryant McKinnie, Rich Mercier and Ray Bellamy, baseball's Robbie Morrison, track's Patrina Allen, women's basketball's Desma Thomas Bateast, and women's tennis coach Paige Yaroshuk Tews. The 44th annual induction banquet will be held Thursday, March 29, at Jungle Island in Miami.

Since its inception in 1966, the UMSHoF has inducted over 250 or the greatest student-athletes who have worn the Orange, Green and White.

The University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame[46] is located next to the Hecht Athletic Center on campus. It houses many artifacts and memorabilia from the Hurricanes' athletic teams over the last 80 years. Each year, the Hall of Fame inducts former athletes who have been out of school at least 10 years, or coaches and administrators, in an annual banquet.

UM Sports Hall of Fame

Some critics of Miami's allocation of fiscal resources within the Athletics Department have blamed the decision to drop certain men's teams on Title IX compliance.[43][44][45]

Miami has notable differences between the graduation rates of male and female student athletes. As of 2002, UM graduation rates had 64.1% graduating within 4 years, 75.1% graduating within 5 years, and 76.8% graduating within 6 years.[41] Male student athletes have a 52% 4 year graduation rate, and 72% of female student athletes graduate within 4 years.[42]

Of the $46.8 million in annual athletic expenditures, $23.9 million were spent on men's team, $9.8 million were spent on women's teams, and $13 million can not be allocated based on gender.[4]

The University of Miami, as articulated by its president Donna Shalala, has been very supportive of achieving gender equity and complying with Title IX. Shalala wrote of her support in a Miami Herald column on the 30th anniversary of that law.[39] However, in the past, female athletes filed complaints with the federal government in the 1970s and 1980s alleging unequal funding and facilities for UM women's sports.[40]

Gender equity

The Miami Hurricanes most recent (2013) overall program Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 92 percent, according to the rates released by the NCAA. Miami's GSR is tied for third among ACC schools and 10th overall among FBS programs. UM has exceeded the NCAA average GSR in each of the last nine years. In 2012, Miami set a school-record with a 93 percent GSR, a year after (2011) establishing a then-record at 89 percent. Eight teams compiled GSR marks of 100 percent. Men's diving and golf each posted their ninth consecutive perfect marks, while women's tennis recorded its sixth straight GSR score of 100 percent. Baseball, women's track & field / cross country, rowing, women's swimming and volleyball also tallied perfect GSR scores. It was volleyball's third straight year with a perfect GSR; rowing and women's swimming posted perfect scores for the second straight year.[38]

Graduation Success Rate
