Throughout the sports world, Miami has the unique reputation as the "Cradle of Coaches." Legendary football coaches such as Woody Hayes, Bo Schembechler, Ara Parseghian, Weeb Ewbank, Paul Brown and Sid Gillman all had roots at Miami. University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh isn't in the Cradle, but his brother John, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, graduated from Miami in 1984 and his statue stands tall in front of Yager Stadium.

Rubbing the turtles’ heads
Just behind Warfield and MacMillan Halls in Quad Central, you’ll find the Tri Delt Sundial, a gift from Delta Delta Delta sorority. It is said that rubbing one of the heads of the copper turtles is good luck, and if done so before an exam, legend says you will receive an “A.”

Miami and UC square off each fall for the famed Victory Bell. The original bell hung in Miami's Harrison Hall (Old Main) near the site of the first football game in 1888 and was used to ring in Miami victories. The traveling trophy tradition began in the 1890s when some Cincinnati fans "borrowed" the bell. The bell went to the winner of the annual game for the next 40 years until it mysteriously disappeared in the 1930s. The original bell reappeared in 1946 and is on display in the lobby of Miami's Murstein Alumni Center. The current trophy is a replica of the original bell and is kept in the possession of the winning team each year.
