From 1983 to 2006 the Hurricanes won 267 games and lost only 69. During this run they also won 5 championships: 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, 2001. They should have repeated to win in 2002 against Ohio State but the refs seemed to have a different plan. They did not win these championships with class and sportsmanship. They won with cocky attitudes, taunting, unsportsmanlike play, flashiness, and relentlessness. You either love them or hate them.
