For the longest time Miami has a well-earned reputation of being an institution of thugs.
Earlier this week a sexually-explicit video was posted on Miami starting QB N’Kosi Perry’s Snapchat account, involving two people performing sexual acts. It was posted after Miami’s win over Toledo on Sept. 15. The video resurfaced among Miami students this week.
Miami coach Mark Richt told reporters on Wednesday that senior Malik Rosier would start in the bowl game but also confirmed that Perry is not suspended and would be available for action.
“He’s not suspended,” Richt said. “He is available to play as of right now.”
“We are aware of an inappropriate video posted on a social media account associated with one of our student-athletes,” a UM spokesman said in a statement. “The video has been removed and the posting has been addressed with the student-athlete. We will continue to be committed to high standards of conduct at UM.”
What a joke.
The incident was the second time this season Perry was involved with a questionable online video. Perry was also seen in a video on Instagram flashing a wad of cash while riding in a car this past October.
The appropriate action by any upstanding university would have been to suspend Perry, short of booting him off the team.
Way to rub their faces in it, Wisconsin!
