Seven Miami Hurricanes Players suspended for 2017 Russell Athletic Bowl.
Get your "Mark Richt has lost control of Miami" memes ready. Miami has suspended not one, not two, not three, but seven players for its upcoming 2016 Russel Athletic bowl appearance against West Virginia on Dec. 28.
Miami's explanation for the suspensions was given as the ever vague “failing to meet the standards of expectations set by the program.”
The Miami players suspended are wide receiver O'Juan Carney, tight ends Jovani Haskins and Michael Irvin Jr. (son of that Michael Irvin. Just sayin' ), defensive backs Jeff James, Jr. and Cedrick Wright, and defensive linemen Tyreic Martin and Gerald Willis.
