Despite losing to Pittsburgh on Friday, it’s been a fun season for the Miami Hurricanes, who still have a chance to make the College Football Playoff. Win against Clemson, and they might be in business.
But it’s been a fun season on the sidelines, too, thanks to the turnover chain. Whenever the Hurricanes intercept a pass or scoop up a fumble, it’s always worth watching where the camera pans to next.
Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde named the turnover chain his “Sideline Talisman of the Year” in this year’s edition of the Dashie Awards – which he describes as “honoring the weirdest, dumbest and most offbeat entertaining happenings of a season that is winding down all too quickly.”
Here’s what Forde said about the turnover chain:
It far outlived the aforementioned pimp cane. It shamed the Tennessee trash can. It rose to greater prominence than the Georgia savage shoulder pads. The Miami Turnover Chain was simultaneously the freshest motivational trinket and the most accurate representation of The U imaginable. And the fact that it was crafted by a jeweler who was disassociated from North Carolina’s football program in 2010 makes it the perfect college sports accessory.
Miami fans are hoping the turnover chain makes a few appearances against Clemson.
