Miami has declared eight football players ineligible and begun the NCAA student-athlete reinstatement process, according to The Miami Herald.

Quarterback Jacory Harris was the only player named in the report as being ineligible, which stems from alleged extra benefits provided by former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro. Four other players, according to the report, were cleared because they accepted fewer than $100 in benefits and can repay the amounts to a charity of their choice in order to play.

It is not known if the ineligible players will complete the reinstatement process in time for Miami's first game against Maryland on September 5. The university was expected to get the proceedings started early in hopes that the NCAA can determine their status for the season opener sooner. Speaking earlier Thursday, head coach Al Golden delayed releasing a depth chart due to the uncertain status of so many players involved in the investigation.

“We'll practice enough guys because we don't know what the future brings,” Golden said. “Hopefully we'll find out in the near future if there are any suspensions or penalties and we'll adjust accordingly.”

Golden said ACC rules require depth charts to be released on Tuesday but that Miami was working with the conference and with the Terrapins to coordinate its release.

At least 12 players involved in the NCAA probe practiced Thursday afternoon according to reports.

Why should they be penalized? What makes this different from ALL the politicians who accept bribes from ALL the big companies and contributers to their positions.

Why should a student not take advantage of making a little money when the universities soak all the general public with their fees to see an event.

You kidding? The Big Easy?  Nope.  What else do you call a conference with Syracuse, BC, UConn, WVU, and Pitt.  A conference where frequently their best team has 3-4 losses ever since Miami left--wow, so you were able to win there!!

 What do you call the Big Ten?  The Big 10 or B10 for short.

Well in my lifetime I can say this:

OSU - 3 AP/UPI plus a couple of shared titles, but it depends on what you recognize as a title in the 60s and 70s.

Miami - 4 AP/UPI titles plus shared title.

So it seems that Miami would have a slight edge, but I have one question--how many has Miami won since they left the Big Easy?
