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 ($) 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, 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: More suspensions for Miami

Whats funny is the Randy Shannon supposedly cleaned up this program, appears now that he did nothing of the sort. Looks like Al Golden isnt wasting any time though. It will take some time for this to sink in for some of those kids but Al will get his point across eventually.

Seantrel "five star" Henderson didnt want to go to USC because the coach might quit and they just got suspended.....well, the U is really making a man out of him now....Perhaps he should get a tat for the prison yard. This is what Paul Dee expects of other schools?

Report: More suspensions for Miami

It seems the most common news in ncaa football is about players, coaches, and administrators breaking rules. College football is becoming a joke. What's even crazier is the way that the penalties are dealt with. No one follows the rules because the punishments are minimal and discourage nothing. Players are repeat offenders and so are schools. Time to bring some credibility back to college football by giving penalties that have some teeth.

Once a dumb ass...always a dumb ass.  Kick the repeat offenders off the team and maybe the others will get it the next time!  Coach Al needs to set some examples and he will.
