Miami threw two defensive starters off its football team Saturday for NCAA violations, after a months-long probe into whether players had access to luxury rental cars. Defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad and linebacker Jermaine Grace were ''permanently dismissed'' from the team, though the school is offering to continue providing financial aid until they graduate from Miami. Another linebacker, Juwon Young, left Miami several weeks ago and was part of the same rental-car probe.
