Notre Dame defensive coordinator gave his players a pump-up speech before their top-ten showdown with Miami.
No. 3 Notre Dame plays No. 7 Miami tonight in a matchup of two top ten teams. It's a huge game, and huge games merit epic pump up speeches.
Enter Notre Dame defensive coordinator Mike Elko. Apparently he's sick and tired of hearing about how good Miami's defense is, so he told his players how he feels. As you might expect, the video below has some NSFW language.
"They can have the chain. We're getting the f---ing rings" is one of the better lines you'll hear all season.
Update: Miami's defense forced four turnovers and stunted heavy with the chain on the sideline all night. Meanwhile, Miami's offense scored virtually at will and blew out the Irish. Perhaps Delko should have given this speech to the offense; if you don't want to see Miami swagger with the chain, don't turn the ball over!
