Wake up, Bronco Nation: Boise State football links and things, 8-26-11

Miami has started to suspend players including QB Jacory Harris that were involved in the Nevin Shapiro case

This is the same tactic that Auburn used when Cam Newton was briefly ruled ineligible before a game last year. Miami is hoping to give the NCAA enough time to review the allegations and have their eligibility reinstated. Good luck with that. Also, the LSU saga is far from over. The police have raided Jordan Jefferson's apartment and witnesses have come forward to say that Jefferson was the one to kick the victim in the head.
