Miami vs. Maryland: Jacory Harris Expects to Play, Will the NCAA Let Him?
According to a report from ESPN, Miami Hurricanes quarterback Jacory Harris, one of the players ruled ineligible by the university after determined involvement with extra benefits, expects to play in the team's season opener at Maryland.
Harris seemed awfully confident when answering reporters' questions about the likelihood that he will start on September 5.
But should Harris and the 11 other Canes players accused of the accepting extra benefits be cleared to play so soon?
The NCAA is expected to make a decision on Harris and the rest of the ineligible players shortly, but one has to suspect that the given the current landscape of college football and the controversy surrounding the topic of players and benefits, that officials will be looking to make an example out of Miami.
Talk of a "death penalty" has quieted recently and seems a bit extreme for a program that gives so much back to the NCAA financially, but a long-term suspension of key players would be the next logical step in the punishment cycle.
Miami fans will argue every other high-profile university is just as dirty, but proof is proof, and Harris and his accused teammates have been caught.
Harris could very likely play another game with the Hurricanes, but in my opinion it won't be Monday night against the Terps.
