Tales from the Miami Hurricanes Sideline: A Collection of the Greatest Hurricanes Stories Ever Told | [Jim Martz]

Tales from the Miami Hurricanes Sideline: A Collection of the Greatest Hurricanes Stories Ever Told

University of Miami football is more than national championships, 30-game winning streaks, and being a pipeline to the NFL. It’s the Gator Flop, defeating Tulane on a fifth down, and playing three games in eight days. It’s converting third and 44 against Notre Dame, Michael Irvin talking smack with Florida State’s Deion Sanders, and Vinny Testaverde being sacked by hamburgers.

Audible Editor Reviews

To some, "The U"'s sustained success and five national titles serve as a paragon for how the game should be played. To others, the braggadocio of their late '80's teams signaled the corruption of modern college athletics. 

With 30-plus years of covering the Hurricanes, no one is more qualified than Jim Martz to provide an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most successful and controversial programs in college football history.

Ax Norman's vibrant, buoyant delivery perfectly captures the spirit of the brash and outspoken players and coaches profiled in Martz's stories, making for a fun, compelling listen regardless of one's opinion of this iconic program.

Publisher's Summary

Relive the greatest moments in Hurricanes football - newly updated!

University of Miami football is more than national championships, 30-game winning streaks, and being a pipeline to the NFL. It’s the Gator Flop, defeating Tulane on a fifth down, and playing three games in eight days. It’s converting third and 44 against Notre Dame, Michael Irvin talking smack with Florida State’s Deion Sanders, and Vinny Testaverde being sacked by hamburgers. It’s the Jet Lag Kids playing seven road games in one season, including one in Tokyo, and it’s the Ibis mascot being arrested on the field in Tallahassee and being nicked by a bullet on Bourbon Street.

Tales from the Miami Hurricanes Sideline is a collection of the greatest anecdotes and stories ever told about ’Canes football. In this newly updated edition, Jim Martz, who has covered the team for more than three decades, chronicles the ups, downs, and sideways of this spirited program that has produced five national championship teams under four different coaches since 1983. They have won under charismatic coaches and under low-key coaches. More than anything, they have won with colorful players. In an age of parity and just a few years removed from the program nearly being dropped, the Hurricanes have defied the odds and become a dynasty of modern college football.
