Last night the University of Miami Hurricanes took on the Virginia Tech Hokies in an ACC battle for the top spot in the coastal division. Neither team came into the game ranked in the top 25, but both programs have been historically strong, gestating the rivalry to the point that this game meant a great deal to both schools regardless of the BCS. Miami head coach Al Golden had his team come out onto the field wearing all orange uniforms, something that hasn’t been worn by the Hurricanes since 1985. Golden’s strategy may just have been what Miami needed, as they beat the Hokies 30-12 on Thursday night.
In the color schemes for the team’s “current” uniforms, the school shows three uniforms, one green, one white, and the other orange. The school colors are green, white, orange, and the orange jersey shown, has green pants to go with the jersey as well as a white helmet. Last night the Canes came out looking like a sea of orange, but retained the white helmets.

Authentically Speaking Trivia Time: What was different about the Redskins logo in 1982? Answer to come tomorrow.
Thursday’s answer: The Wilt Chamberlain Argument was developed by Robert Nozick and it is an attempt to show that patterned principles of just distribution are incompatible with liberty.
