Penalties Becoming Major Problem for Miami

Coral Gables, FL (AP) - Over the past three seasons, Miami has
averaged a total of 82 penalties.

This season, it's 83 and counting for the Hurricanes -- the most
in the nation, and Miami coach Randy Shannon says he simply cannot
understand why.

The Hurricanes are one of just two teams, Arkansas being the
other, in major college football who've gotten flagged at least 10
times in four different games this season. And the Hurricanes have
been the lesser-penalized team in only one of their nine games this
season.

Shannon says his staff puts together a list of calls they
question and submit to the Atlantic Coast Conference each week, but
that move apparently hasn't helped solve the ongoing problem.
