One of the Miami Hurricanes' signatures is running through smoke as they come out of the tunnel to begin games, but against the Florida State Seminoles, the entrance was a arm-in-arm walk - a break from the school's tradition, symbolizing team unity.
The smoke-run entrance has been a staple of the University of Miami's football tradition for over 40 years, and allowed players to show off while entering the stadium - symbolic of the flash and swagger of the teams that became known as The U. But against the Seminoles, the team made a group decision to walk, arms locked, through the smoke. From Michael Casagrande of the South Florida Sun Sentinel:
Green went on to say that he thinks the Hurricanes will continue to enter as a team rather than individually going forward. No one player made the decision, but rather the team made the call to swap the tradition as a group.
