Eight Suspensions for Miami
The good news for the University of Miami players implicated in the Nevin Shapiro scandal rocking college football is they will get to play more football.
The bad news is, not right away.
Of the twelve Miami players implicated, eight have been suspended by the NCAA from anywhere from 1-6 games. All twelve must pay restitution before being reinstated.
The harshest penalties go to the players who received benefits from Shapiro while being recruited by Miami.
The four players not being suspended received benefits with a value of less than $100.00.
Defensive lineman Oliver Vernon received the stiffest penalty–six games. He also must make restitution of more than $1200.00.
Miami opens their season Monday night with an ACC game against Maryland.
