I don't know what you're talking about though. Utah has a better history in major sports than Miami, although Miami has a good basket ball team this year. And outside of Florida most people don't call it the U. Even when I lived in Texas people called Utah The U and Miami just, well; Miami.
I mean like Utah is a U, U of U. I don't know where the U in Miami comes from. We have always been the U and we were founded first! So I declare The University of Utah officially to be The U!
