Hurricane Day this Friday, Dec. 1 in South Florida

Nov. 27, 2000

Tell us where you’ll be wearing Orange on Friday!

CORAL GABLES, Fla. ( – – The University of Miami will be playing for a National Championship.

Where and When? It doesn’t really matter.

The mathematicians and computers will send the Hurricanes to the Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl or Orange Bowl next Sunday when the BCS announces the official season ending rankings. Regardless of the location, the Hurricanes will contend for the National Championship, as the AP poll is not married to the BCS system leaving the opportunity for a split national championship.

To celebrate the occasion, the University of Miami has declared Friday, December 1st, Hurricane Day. Fans are encouraged to wear “orange” on Friday as Sebastian the Ibis, UM Cheerleaders and the Sunsations will be teaming up with radio station WHYI-FM (Y-100) to spot the “orange” and distribute bowl tickets, basketball season tickets, Hurricane merchandise and many more fantastic prizes to Hurricane fans dressed in orange. The “Bowl Patrol” will be roaming Downtown Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove so run to your local retailer and purchase your “orange” gear.

If you’re stuck at work on Friday and find yourself buried beneath paper, log on to and tell us your location so we can surprise you and your co-workers and bring a little orange to your day.

You may purchase your orange Hurricane merchandise at the following retailers: All Sports, Authentics at Pembroke Lakes Mall, Champs, Niketown, Pro Image at Sawgrass Mall, The Sports Authority and the University of Miami bookstore.

Where will you be spotted wearing orange? It does matter because the Hurricanes are playing for the National Championship. Log on to for more information or tune into Y-100 on Friday morning.
