Report: More suspensions for Miami

Posted by Tom Fornelli

The Miami Hurricanes have already suspended six players for the team's opening game of the 2011 season against Maryland, and if a report on InsidetheU.com ($) is to be believed, there remains a chance that by the time the game is actually played, Miami may be out of players to field a team. That's because according to the report, four more Hurricanes have been suspended thanks to two separate instances.

According to the report, running back Storm Johnson, linebacker Travis Williams and cornerback Keion Payne were involved in an incident on April 27 at a UM residential hall, which eventually involved the University of Miami Police Department. Offensive lineman Jermaine Barton was involved in a separate incident on April 29.

According to InsideTheU.com, the four players are expected to be suspended for at least one game, although the penalty for the repeat offenders could be more. It is undetermined which game they will serve the suspensions.

A UM spokesperson said Wednesday that no players have been suspended.

Now, as the Sun-Sentinel report says, Miami hasn't acknowledged the reported suspensions. Which means that if they are coming, we don't know for how long nor what games these players will be missing. What we do know is that Storm Johnson and Keion Payne are already two of the six players that had been suspended for the Maryland game. As repeat offenders, it's possible that any additional suspension they receive will be worse than the ones that may be coming to Travis Williams and Jermaine Barton.

The other players suspended for the Maryland game are Seantrel Henderson, Kelvin Cain, Dyron Dye and Devont'a Davis.

Report: Six Canes to be suspended for opener

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Over the weekend there were rumors coming out of Coral Gables that Miami offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson had been suspended for the team's season opener against Maryland, and that Henderson was preparing to transfer. Well, Al Golden and Henderson's father went out of their way to make it clear that he would not be transferring, but Golden did not address the suspension rumors, which seemed a bit strange.

Now we know why, as there are now reports out of southern Florida that not only will Henderson be suspended for the Maryland game, but five more of his teammates will be joining him.
According to two anonymous sources, Henderson, RB Storm Johnson, LB Kelvin Cain, DB Keion Payne, DL Dyron Dye and DB Devont'a Davis will all be spending the season opener on the sideline. The report says that the suspensions are not academic related, and that all six broke team rules.

Al Golden has not commented on the story, as he's on vacation this week with the rest of his players, as Miami is on spring break.

Seantrel Henderson not transferring, suspended?

Posted by Tom Fornelli

There have been a lot of rumors involving Miami offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson floating through Miami and Coral Gables in the last few days. According to InsidetheU.com, Henderson has been suspended for Miami's season opener against Maryland in 2011. Then there are the rumors that Henderson is thinking about transferring from the school.

Which wouldn't be the first time Henderson changed his mind about his school, after all. One of the most highly rated recruits of the 2010 class, Henderson originally announced a commitment to USC on signing day in 2010, but did not sign his letter of intent. He wanted to wait and see about the sanctions that would be hitting USC before signing, and then eventually chose to go to Miami.

One of the biggest reasons Henderson chose Miami was head coach Randy Shannon, who has since been fired and replaced by Al Golden. And that's where the Henderson transfer rumors grew from. Rumors which have now been denied by both Henderson and Al Golden.


More Miami

“Seantrel has every intention of remaining with the University of Miami and our football program,’’ Golden said in a written statement. “It is disappointing that individuals are taking the liberty to hypothesize on his future. He is coming off a strong finish to off-season workouts, rotated with the first team on Thursday and is well respected and liked by his teammates. Seantrel is growing into a leader, loves the game and cares deeply about being a part of the Miami Hurricane family.’’

“I am committed to my teammates, coaches and the championship goals we are chasing at the University of Miami," said Henderson in his statement. "I have no desire to play anywhere but at the U.”

Of course, while that settles the transfer rumors, you'll notice Al Golden said nothing about any possible suspension. Though according to Seantrel's father, Sean, neither he or his son have been informed of any suspension.
