The 1980’s Hurricanes are remembered for several things, winning games and championships, legendary coaches like Jimmy Johnson, and also for spicing up college football with their sometimes hostile version of play.

Proving my point even further, most people know the 1987 Canes for capturing the programs second national championship, going 12-0 and defeating Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl to clinch the title.

When you bring up that magical season, some will remind you of the game Miami played against South Carolina and the eighth-ranked Gamecocks. With the Hurricanes trying to secure a 20-16 fourth quarter lead, Miami defensive end Daniel Stubbs took that intensity and hostile play to a whole new level.

Now while this wasn’t the best look for the Hurricanes, it’s definitely a memorable play from a historic season.
