1984 -  Hurricanes
(Authentic Reproduction)




With the introduction of former Oklahoma State head coach Jimmy Johnson as the new Hurricane mentor, there was also an introduction of a white face mask and "The U" as Miami is often referred to, has been wearing the same styled headgear since. Johnson's teams became the terror of collegiate football and his seasonal records of 8-5, 10-2, 11-1, 12-0, and 11-1 earned him the National Championship in 1987, laid the foundation for two others ('89 and '91) when Dennis Erickson took over in 1989, and earned Johnson the Cowboys head coaching job.
