Miami suspends QB, six others for season opener
By ASSOCIATED PRESS

Miami starting quarterback Robert Marve and six others have been suspended for Thursday's season opener against Charleston Southern.

Marve, a redshirt freshman announced as the starter after Sunday night's practice, will miss the game due to an incident last year. He was arrested Oct. 31 for smashing a car mirror. He was initially charged with two misdemeanors, but they were later lifted.

He will be replaced by true freshman Jacory Harris, a Miami native.

Miami coach Randy Shannon said Marve's suspension wasn't a surprise and he didn't tell Marve about it earlier because he wanted him and the other quarterbacks "to have a chance to compete."

Marve said he only found out in the last couple of days that he would miss his first game as a Hurricane, but was OK with the decision.

"I trust whatever he did," Marve said. "I messed up, so it's best for the team and I'm here for them."

Marve won a state championship and was named "Mr. Florida Football" in 2006 as a senior at Tampa Plant.

He redshirted last season after breaking his wrist in a car crash in July 2007.

The other suspended players are running backs Damien Berry and Eric Houston, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, defensive back Randy Phillips, wide receiver Kayne Farquaharson and long snapper Chris Ivory. No reasons for the suspensions were given.

Of the group, Ojomo had the best chance to start. He would have replaced Allen Bailey and Eric Moncur. Both Moncur and Bailey were not on the depth chart that Shannon released, and have been held out of practice for most of the fall for conditioning-related reasons.
