North Carolina has announced the players they'll be without for Saturday's Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic against No. 21 LSU, and while it's not 16 as some speculated, it's still a hefty loss: the 21st-ranked Tar Heels will be without the services of 12 players. Six have been declared ineligible for violating school and/or NCAA rules by the school, with another six simply being withheld as the investigations continue.
The six ineligible student-athletes include: defensive tackle Marvin Austin, cornerback Charles Brown, cornerback Kendric Burney, wide receiver Greg Little, defensive end Michael McAdoo and defensive end Robert Quinn.
Six other student-athletes who will be withheld from Saturday's game include: tailback Shaun Draughn, defensive end Linwan Euwell, safety Brian Gupton, tailback Ryan Houston, safety Da'Norris Searcy and safety Jonathan Smith.
While Marvin Austin was already suspended indefinitely, the length of time the other 11 players will miss has not yet been determined.
