Miami football no longer has bowl ban; loses 9 scholarships

The Miami Hurricanes football program learned their punishment and it was some positive news. No longer will they need to sit out post-season bowl games, but they will need to miss a handful of scholarships over the next few seasons.

From Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports:

Miami sat out the last two post-seasons, as well as the 2012 ACC championship game, due to self-imposed sanctions relating to the Nevin Shapiro scandal.

When you look at the success this program is having this year, it has to be a welcomed decision from the team and fans that they will be eligible to take part in the postseason. With their recent winning ways, it is hard to imagine a scenario where the Hurricanes are not in a top bowl game.

The news was was first reported by WQAM’s Joe Rose.
