When it was reported late last week that eight Miami football players had been declared ineligible by the school, it was unclear if a decision on their eligibility, one way or the other, would be made before the opener on Labor Day.
According to the Hurricanes’ head coach, the program should find out sooner rather than later.
During an interview Monday with a radio station in Miami, Al Golden said the school should receive a ruling from the NCAA on the eligibility of the players at some point “in the next 48 hours.” He added that the program should hear from the NCAA today if there are any additional questions they have on the allegations that numerous current players had received impermissible benefits.
Only two of the eight players reportedly declared ineligible have been named — quarterback Jacory Harris and linebacker Sean Spence.
For what it’s worth, Harris stated over the weekend that he thinks he will play this season. And that he’s really fond of penguin eggs. Or something.
