Report: Eight Miami players declared ineligible

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.

Report: Eight Miami players declared ineligible


 Maurice was gone when he went on his crime spree. Seriously you need to go watch the whole game in 2002 before you talk about it. It should have been won in regulation if the REF got the gamble call right. I would rather be Tat U than Thug U anyday of the week.  I know there ave been many good NFL players from Miami, but you need to go do some homework before saying there are no relevant buckeyes in the pros. Go look at some O and D lines, some DB's Oh and if I am not mistaken I think a Buckeye scored the winning TD in a superbowl not to long ago. You think Mark sanchez takes the Jets where he has without mangold anchoring that line?

So breaking NCAA rules trumps breaking laws in your opinion?


Miami's criminals are worse than Ohio State's?   LOL   The FBI had to contact the school in Columbus.  People didn't want to go on record because they were afraid for their safety, in relation to the criminals in Columbus, not because fans would be mad at them.  The Ohio coach was saying how he was afraid for his poor players, but the worse one was the 5'5 guy in Miami.  Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy.

Epic fail!!!

Now I'm sure Miami probably does have worse criminals, but not in relation to what was going on with the respective football teams.

Unfortunately, it's true. That was a catch and should have been a 1st down. It's game over at that point, and no PI call. 

The biggest play of that game was not Porter's horrific call, it was Clarett sneaking up on Sean Taylor and causing him to fumble after an int. Miami was certainly the better team, but on that day, Ohio State earned it.

I won't take that away from them.

The PI call was still horrific though.

Why is it every time a Miami fan talks of the 2002 Championship game, they never mention the complete pass to Gamble that would have ended it in regulation, or the holding on the play byJennings but the ref blew the call three times on the same play.

Here's a reminder just so you stop the nonsense.

BigKatz, you are still gloating about the national championship that you guys paid for in 2002. We should have six! That referee (TERRY PORTER) should have been investigated by the NCAA. He was paid by some OHIO STATE booster! And you should not comment about breaking laws, Maurice Clarett was a criminal and you guys had him on your team! The kid has never been the same after he left TATOO U! LOL! OHIO State was not relevant until 2002 when a national championship was given to them. Before that and even now they have been losers and bust in the NFL. I can name UM players that are still relevant. You don't have as many as we do that is why you HATE! LOSER!

  Miami had more yards (by over 100) and Ohio State only averaged a putrid 3.6 yards per play

But did they have more points?  Because that I checked the game is won by who has more points not more yards.

Like your azzes will not be penalized big time as well or do you not read the papers

This is always my favorite, well you will be in trouble too, ours was not that bad.  haahahahahahahahahahah

dpremier1, the best thing you could do is unplug your computer, take it to the nearest dumpster, and throw it in.  Then throw yourself in after it!

You had your HEAD COACH cover up the rule breaking IMO that trumps a booster!!

So breaking NCAA rules trumps breaking laws in your opinion? I think you need to read the papers and read what those boys at the U actually did. The biggest gift in that game happened way before the PI call (for the canes), but I am sure you didn't see that with your green and orange glasses on. The fact is your QB had not been hit all year and the Buckeyes rattled him or else the 14 point favorite canes would have won. tOSU is and always has been more relevant than the canes.
