Miami ruling several players intelligible until they can be reinstated by the NCAA. NCAA should rule BEFORE the season opener on their eligibility.

8 players suspended:

http://espn.go.com/college-football/sto ... repayments

Quote:
Defensive lineman Olivier Vernon will sit out six games, while Ray Ray Armstrong -- considered among the nation's top safeties -- and tight end Dyron Dye will miss four games apiece. They are three of eight players, including Harris, who must sit out games and repay benefits before they can be reinstated.



Quote:
Harris, Sean Spence, Travis Benjamin, Marcus Forston and Adewale Ojomo all must sit out one game and make restitution for accepting benefits after enrolling at the school. Four other players must repay small amounts, all under $100, but will not miss any games.


Quote:
A 13th player, Marcus Robinson, was vindicated of wrongdoing.

The NCAA's ruling means Stephen Morris -- who led Miami past the Terrapins last season -- will be at quarterback for the Hurricanes to start the season. Harris, Spence, Benjamin, Forston and Ojomo all will be eligible to play when Miami hosts Ohio State on Sept. 17.

"All we've done throughout this process is try to move forward," Miami coach Al Golden said.

The NCAA said Vernon must sit six games and repay more than $1,200 because as a recruit he accepted things such as access to Shapiro's suite at a Miami home game, drinks and cover charges at two different nightclubs. Shapiro, who told Yahoo! Sports for a story published Aug. 16 that he provided benefits to 72 Miami players and recruits over an eight-year span, has even said that he made a $1,000 donation to Vernon's high school booster club.

Armstrong must repay $788, the believed worth of his extra benefits, while Dye will pay back $738.

"The student-athletes involved have acknowledged receiving improper benefits and will now be responsible for restitution," Eichorst said.

Forston, the NCAA said, received more than $400 in things such as "athletic equipment, meals, nightclub cover charges and entertainment at a gentleman's club." Spence received about $275 in benefits, Ojomo $240, Benjamin more than $150 and Harris more than $140.

Brandon McGee, JoJo Nicholas, Micanor Regis and Vaughn Telemaque all must pay less than $100 for various impermissible benefits.

Separately, Golden said senior wide receiver Aldarius Johnson -- who was also implicated by Shapiro, but not named in Tuesday's NCAA statement -- has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

Timing. There's NCAA and NFL games going on, so the news is preoccupied. I also think Miami is keeping silent and dealing directly with the allegations instead of publicly dealing with it. The silence looks guilty, but much like OSU, regardless of what the media says, the final ruling from the NCAA is the only thing that matters.

At least the media isn't making up false allegations about Miami, good for them.
