That turnover chain is generating some negative connotations from other fan bases across the country. The chain does not represent excellence on the field for them, it represents a self-centered bigotry that is unwarranted and ugly.

Miami played its best game vs. Virginia Tech highlighted by elite defense and timely offensive orange and green fireworks. But it was the bigoted tones by rival fans that echoed louder in a cacophony of calamity.

For those who have followed Miami football for decades, these statements are nothing new. Nothing out of the ordinary. Unfortunately commonplace that arises even more frequently when Miami sits proudly amidst college football’s center stage.

These are deplorable statements stemming from subpar corners within a human heart to broadcast openly for the world to see. In a society that often times rightfully condemns prejudice from leaders with consequence, it is sad to see such unabated intolerance.
