The turnover chain is still amazing

“Turnover chain, Turnover chain, Turnover chain” I don’t know the rest of the song, but the beat is fire and it gets you going. We all know the “turnover chain” is the best thing is college football right now and nobody can debate that.

Week 13 they caused two turnovers and got an onside kick recovering. The energy the turnover chain brings to the defense is amazing. Today their offense couldn’t match the defenses’ intensity and at the end of the day is the main reason Miami caught the fade against Pittsburgh.

Miami only had the ball for 23:30 on offense. The defense was on the field more than half of the game and only gave up 24 points and 345 total yards. While Pittsburgh was efficient Miami did a good job keeping them under control most of the game besides the fourth-and-five play late and the game that Pittsburgh scored on via a playing action bootleg run.

I personally still love the turnover chain, but today it wasn’t enough to keep them undefeated as Pittsburgh wasn’t to be played with this afternoon.

“Turnover chain, turnover chain, turnover chain” *insert sad face*.
