Robert Marve will have company on the sidelines for Miami's opener with Charleston Southern on Thursday. The Canes suspended seven players for the opener, including Marve, the starting quarterback.
Freshman Jacory Harris will start in Marve's place. The Canes will also be missing running back Damien Berry, receiver Kayne Farquharson, fullback Eric Houston, long snapper Chris Ivory, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, and safety Randy Phillips. The two possible starters among them were senior Farquharson and redshirt freshman Ojomo, according to the Miami Herald.
Normally, missing a game against Charleston Southern wouldn't be a big deal but Marve, who redshirted last season, has never taken a college snap and up next for the Canes is No. 5 Florida at the Swamp.
