The Miami Gentle Showers 

To my knowledge it hasn't been asserted anywhere that the Miami Hurricanes' nickname is insensitive and racist.

Only a matter of time.

This also presents a unique problem/opportunity in marketing for The University of Tulsa, which has one of the odder nicknames in college sports -- "The Golden Hurricane". Odd for a team in northeast Oklahoma and odd just for color-coding a weather system. It is, though, one of the few appropriate uses for the modern fad for using singular nouns. You don't want eleven hurricanes taking the field, after all.
