The Miami Hurricanes made a major splash by bringing in Oregon Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal. The college football landscape changed drastically with several hires, including Lincoln Riley and Brian Kelly, but Cristobal was a tremendous get for Miami.
Cristobal hasn’t even coached one game yet for the Hurricanes, but he has already made a major change to the team. According to Brett McMurphy of Action Network, they are ditching the famous Turnover Chain.
Miami dumping Turnover Chain: UM coach Mario Cristobal said the 'Canes are getting rid of the Turnover Chain "It's not part of our culture," Cristobal told me. UM has had the Turnover Chain since 2017

If you’re a Miami fan, you probably aren’t thrilled about this. As Cristobal said, “It’s not part of our culture.” That means Cristobal is making a culture change with his new job.
Maybe Cristobal saw the stats and decided to get rid of it — the turnovers have decreased in recent years. This news isn’t going over well with college football fans in general.
Miami getting rid of their turnover chain 😔
Bad day for college football #CFB

Miami retiring the turnover chain is dumber than the turnover chain was in the first place. Cristobal, you coward. Bring it back. It’s the culture now.

The turnover chain was cool, it had nothing to do with Miami playing poorly and its demise is the loss of what had become a really fun new tradition. Lame.

Miami should bring back the turnover chain but make it more large and obnoxious every week https://t.co/LyPIWe3I3g

I kind of liked the turnover chain, and thought Miami was of one the few schools do to the prop thing well https://t.co/1O6mPlDE2D

The Turnover Chain brought about some terrific memories, and with its disappearance, let’s look at some of them.

When you think of the Miami Hurricanes, you tend to think of the Turnover Chain, especially in recent years. But, that is no more, and Mario Cristobal is establishing a new culture. Things better go well in Miami, or Cristobal will be ripped for taking away the chain.
The Miami Turnover Chain is no more.
