Does/has Miami used different oranges in their history?

Recommended Posts

The first pic certainly appears to me like they're wearing a red jersey, while the third pic looks very much like an orange jersey. So I'm going to infer they have changed their colors over time, but as you stated, it could just be a trick of the light in the photos.

Just some advice, try to be a bit more specific with topic titles.

I see "Miami" and "orange" it could either mean U of Miami Hurricanes or Miami Dolphins.

Really? Does that piss you off that much?

More than likely it has changed. Here are their current athletic colors:

I've said this before, but I have found that the majority of collegiate athletic programs don't necessarily adhere to color standards. At least, not as much as professional teams do.

I should also mention that the Orange that the Hurricanes currently use wasn't even present in the Pantone catalog prior to 1987.

Based on the topic title, and just to be a smart :censored: like I usually am, I was going to say that there is probably quite a variety of orange hues across the city of Miami.

Its from the "swirling" ibis logo, thats it.

Just look at the style guide...(page 60)

I like how they have silver and grey in the style guide. Since, everyone around here likes to blame Nike for schools using those colors. When it's actually on Miami's style guide.

Yeah but its only for that one logo, I doubt Miami would consider it a school color, or use it in athletics. But I guess technically it opens the door for some wacky Pro Combat concepts :P

Dude, I have been saying this for years. Nike only does what they do because the schools allow them to do it. If they could change Ohio State, Alabama, USC or any other other traditional powers that they outfit, dont you think they would do it? Of course they would. But those schools only let them get away with so much. The schools such as Miami and others let them do what they want, and they do.

They *have* done it to Ohio State the past two years via Pro Combat -- plus the sleeve striping pattern before that.

(And for the record, I thought of the Heat when I saw the thread title.)

They used to use that color in baseball. Their grey jersey (which they almost never wore) was storm outside of the placket piping, and silver inside it. Looked like pajamas. They also had a hat...green crown, swirling ibis logo, storm grey bill.

I don't mind the storm grey, just as long as they don't bring back that :censored: terrible green helmet with all orange.
