Miami Hurricanes Once Again Have Most Alumni Selected to Pro Bowl

Another Pro Bowl, another year in which the Miami Hurricanes have more former players selected than the Miami Dolphins had current players selected.

The 'Canes had six alumni selected to the star-studded game, which ties with Tennessee for the most from any college program.

Andre Johnson (Houston Texans) and Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis Colts) will be playing wide receiver for the AFC. It will be the sixth Pro Bowl for each.

Chris Myers (also of the Texans) will be the AFC's backup center.

Vince Wilfork (New England Patriots) will also be playing in his fifth Pro Bowl on the D-line. Ed Reed (Baltimore Ravens) will be playing for the AFC as a safety.

Over on the NFC side, the San Francisco 49er's Frank Gore will be playing running back.

Of course, the number is down from 2010 when the Hurricanes set a record of 11 former players in the Pro Bowl.

This is what it means to be a Miami Hurricanes fan at the moment. There's not a lot to get excited about on Saturday, but come Sunday you certainly have bragging rights.
