A trio of former Miami Hurricanes football players aren't happy with Miami's self-imposed bowl ban, according to Michael Casagrande of the Sun-Sentinel:

"Sometimes I guess you feel like the school doesn't have your back," said Miami Dolphin Olivier Vernon, a member of the 2011 Hurricane team that also sat out a bowl ban. "You work so hard in the season to get to a bowl game, get to ACC championship, and to know that your school gave up a bowl bid kinda hurts a little bit but I'm not there so I ain't worrying about it right now."

Casagrande also compiled tweets from former players Brandon Harris and Tyler Horn:

The Hurricanes self-imposed a bowl ban Monday for the second consecutive season, according to the Miami Herald. They're doing so "in hopes of softening the blow expected by the NCAA in the case involving former UM booster Nevin Shapiro."

The Hurricanes are 6-5 this season and 4-3 in the ACC. Miami will finish its season Saturday when it travels to play Duke (6-5) at 12:30 p.m. ET.
