|2011 Miami Hurricanes football team roster|
The Hurricanes faced adversity even before the first down of football as twelve players were forced to pay restitution and eight players were suspended for accepting money and gifts from former booster Nevin Shapiro, a convicted Ponzi schemer serving a 20-year prison sentence. The players suspended were Jacory Harris (one game), Sean Spence (one game), Travis Benjamin (one game), Marcus Forston (one game), Adewale Ojomo (one game), Ray-Ray Armstrong (four games), Dyron Dye (four games), and Olivier Vernon (six games).
On November 20, Miami announced it was withdrawing from bowl consideration due to an ongoing NCAA investigation into the Shapiro affair.
