Enjoy Retirement, Turnover Series. You are a beacon of light for college football.
Miami coach Mario Cristobal confirmed Thursday in an appearance at ACC Media Days that Miami is no longer breaking the iconic jewellery after being forced to switch sales.
The sales series was introduced in 2017 and its various iterations have been a big part of Miami’s show for the past five seasons. Former coach Manny Diaz was the team’s defensive coordinator when the series debuted. But the era of the spinning series is now over, just like Diaz’s tenure as coach for Miami. And Cristóbal doesn’t seem inclined to talk much about the string being put into the pastures on Thursday.
“I think it’s possible that the media has thought about this more than I did,” Cristobal said Thursday when asked why Miami was retiring the sales chain. “We’re just really focused on getting better as a program and we focused on technique, fundamentals, rigorous regimen, academics, strength, conditioning, sports science, community service, and that’s what the focus was.”
“It’s not a snapshot or a form of disrespect to anyone or anyone. Certainly history is history, and whether it’s positive, whether it’s illogical, whatever it is, it’s still history and part of your program. We’re just moving in the direction that it doesn’t include. Now, it’s really the best way to treat it.
“Let’s put it this way. We worked hard and paid attention to many other things that, in my opinion, are so much more important to winning football matches and being successful that it wasn’t really the topic or the topic. We wouldn’t use it. Guys ok with that? Are we good now?” Everyone has a string of things? Alright. Alright. Thank you.”
Cristobal, a Miami native, came to the Hurricanes from Oregon after the team focused on him as a replacement for Diaz. Cristobal played soccer in Miami and is familiar with the outside feelings that happen in Miami. He was part of the legendary Miami teams of the late ’80s and early ’90s that swept the world of college football with their reckless attitudes.
But Cristobal clearly doesn’t think Miami should celebrate the series’ defensive success. At least not now. We hope to return in the future. The spin series was fun. Miami’s success and attitude makes college football fun, too.
