While the focus is on the eight Miami Hurricane football players who will serve suspensions for their role in the alleged violations posited by Nevin Shapiro, there are also five players on the roster who somehow escaped suspensions altogether and will see the field when Miami's season opens this weekend.
Brandon McGee, JoJo Nicolas, Micanor Regis & Vaughn Telemaque have been cleared by the NCAA to play in every game. They must still make repayments on the gifts they received from Shapiro, which total less than $100.
Linebacker Marcus Robinson was cleared of any NCAA violations and would not be penalized.
While things look grim for the Miami football program in general, that's at least some small token of good news to keep them going.
