CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) 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."
