Are you All In? Last week kicked off All-In Fridays. Each week  students, staff, faculty, alumni, fans, departments, groups, teams, organizations, businesses, and members of the community are asked to wear red and submit pictures in their Miami apparel on Fridays by tweeting @MiamiRedHawks with the hashtag #AllInFridays, or posting pictures on Swoop's Facebook page. The best photo will win a prize the following Friday delivered by Swoop. To further promote the initiative, members of the Miami Athletics staff will be going around campus and Oxford on Fridays from 12-1 p.m. to take pictures of people wearing red with the All-In sign.
