Throughout the 1980s, Miami was at the center of a racial and cultural shift taking place throughout the country, and the University of Miami football team served as a microcosm for this evolution. A predominantly white university, the school's image was forever changed when coach Howard Schnellenberger scoured some of the toughest ghettos in Florida to recruit mostly black players for his team. With a newly branded swagger, inspired and fueled by the quickly growing local Miami hip hop culture, these Canes' took on larger-than-life personalities and won four national titles between 1983 and 1991. Filmmaker Billy Corben, a Miami native and University of Miami alum, tells the story of how these "Bad Boys" of football changed the attitude of the game they played, and how this serene campus was transformed into "The U."
