CORAL GABLES — Coach Randy Shannon forced Miami Hurricanes players to close their Twitter accounts on Tuesday.
According to a UM spokesman, Shannon did so to limit distractions and increase focus. Miami, which lost 36-24 at Ohio State on Saturday, has a bye week before its next game at Pittsburgh.
Here’s what a few players tweeted before their accounts evaporated at 2:30 p.m.:
