Miami Hurricanes Football Scandal: QB Jacory Harris Faces Unexpected Obstacle
Coming into the college football season, Miami quarterback Jacory Harris' greatest fear was probably that Stephen Morris would take over his starting spot.
Little did he know that would be the least of his worries.
With the latest allegations that Harris received improper benefits from booster Nevin Shapiro, Harris is in far graver danger. He faces the prospect of not being able to play his senior season.
In a season that was absolutely critical for Harris in his dream to make the NFL, forfeiting his senior campaign would all but end his football career.
The University of Miami has a choice now. It could start 12 of its players under suspicion of receiving improper benefits and potentially forfeit each game they start, or decide to keep them on the sidelines this season.
Obviously, in Harris' case, he's hoping they choose Door No. 1.
The only problem is, that door could open up into something nasty for the university.
Harris told the Associated Press earlier this month, via Yahoo! Sports:
“You learn from your past. You learn from your mistakes. Maybe it was God telling me he put those in my life for a reason, put them there so I can learn from them and learn, OK, `Don’t go here, don’t go there, don’t do that, don’t do this.”’
In that case, Harris was talking about his propensity for throwing interceptions. Ironic that those words could be used in this context, as well.
Harris could very well learn from his past mistakes. But this time, he may not have another chance to throw a touchdown.
