Miami is getting defensive end Olivier Vernon back for this week's showdown with Georgia Tech, the junior having served his six-game suspension for violations associated with former booster Nevin Shapiro. But the defensive line will be one short, with senior Micanor Regis suspended for one game for a violation of team rules. CBSSports.com's Brian London reports Regis' suspension is a result of a dirty play in the victory over North Carolina last week.
"Micanor's actions in the North Carolina game will not be tolerated," head coach Al Golden explained. "Quite honestly, I'm embarrassed."
Regis has apologized for his actions, which were not penalized by the officials in the game. In the days following the loss, several images and clips of the play have surfaced on the internet. After being brought to the ground, Tar Heels wide receiver Dwight Jones appears to catch a right hand from Regis in the groin.
