Quite often on Canespace we see photos of Sun Life Stadium, pictures of players and numerous photos of Canespacers having a great time tailgating.
Here are a different set of photos, taken on campus during an away game in November 1991. A specific game that lives on in Canes lore: Wide Right I.
The game was of course close, and at one point I was so disgusted with FSU's lead that I turned it off and began playing Madden. But I tuned back in during the fourth quarter, in time to see the comeback and then to witness FSU set up for what they had hoped was a game-winning field goal.
The rest on television was history, but here's what happened at the U.
The reaction was immediate. Hundreds of rolls of toilet paper streamed from the dorm windows of Hecht and Mahoney, blanketing the trees below. The campus echoed with cheers, and students milled out to gaze in wonder at the debris that was raining down around them.
Impromptu celebrations took place, as members of the surrounding Coral Gables community cheered along with students. Needless to say, the mess left behind was considerable, as was the celebration!
On October 10, 2015 Miami will again make a special road trip.
And let the reaction to our victory be equally as raucous!
