For one weekend, Miami won't be all about 'The U'

It's a marketing slogan, a credo, and how former Miami Hurricanes introduce themselves on "Monday Night Football." It's "The U" - and the orange and green logo is one of the most distinctive in college sports. Yet when North Carolina visits the Orange Bowl on Oct. 29 for Miami's homecoming game, the Tar Heels won't be seeing that on the sides of the Hurricanes' helmets. For that game, the Hurricanes will don throwback uniforms, replicas from the 1967 season; kelly green jerseys, gold pants and helmets - with red and black hurricane warning flags, not "The U" as a logo.
