    End of an Era for the Miami Hurricanes

    Unfortunately, the Miami Hurricanes have made the famous “Turnover Chain” come to an end. Many tuned in to college football or at least Miami games just to witness the antics. Usually, on the sidelines after the defense got a turnover. Miami Hurricanes HC Mario Cristobal confirms Thursday at his ACC Media day that it will no longer be a part of the tradition, according to Nick Bromberg for Yahoo Sports. In 2017, the tradition was introduced and then this spiraled throughout the country. Many teams were motivated by the excitement. In fact, they altered their culture by adding some form of variation of the “Turnover Chain”.

    Former HC Manny Diaz was the team’s DC when the chain debuted. However, the era is now over similarly to Diaz’s tenure as the HC. The new HC Mario Cristobal didn’t seem moved by the tradition nor did he talk much about it during his media day. 

    “I haven’t given it much thought, to be honest. Our main focus as a program is on improving ourselves, emphasizing technique, fundamentals, discipline, academics, physical training, sports science, and community service. That’s where our attention lies.”

    “It’s not meant to offend or disrespect anyone.” History is history, regardless of its nature or significance. It remains a part of your program. However, we are currently moving in a different direction that doesn’t include it. That’s the best way to address the situation.

    Who’s Mario Cristobal to the Miami Hurricanes?

    He’s a Miami native and he came to the Miami Hurricanes from Oregon. He was sought after when looking for Diaz’s replacement. Cristobal played football at Miami and knows the importance of the Hurricanes’ history and the high expectations for their future. Cristobal participated in the legendary Miami teams in the 1980s and early 1990s. They took the world by storm on those teams!

    Hopefully, Cristobal can turn this legendary program around. However, the end of an era has come and a new one has begun.
