    I see both sides. I went to OSU so obviously I am biased. I think Urban knew, etc and he has a pattern of shit following him. He like others want to win and will do whatever. So yes he lied, etc and probably will get fired.

    That said, not sure what is he supposed to do if she had never filed charges? I mean everybody else who knew has the option of calling the police, leaking it out to the press or even confronting the guy. I do think this is a bit different than a sexual predator using the university so he can fuck kids. No disrespect to women who get beat but they are adults and can make adult decisions like filing charges. Fucking kids is something all together different.

    OSU will be fine. Nobody will care about this. They didn't care when Tressel was fired and they won't care about this. They root for the school not the coach

    When Meyer hired him in 2012 he did acknowledge he knew of the 09 charge for assault on a pregnant woman. He hired this guy anyway, ironically while having "treat woman with respect" painted on a wall in the OSU facility. OK. Did he disclose to his bosses this guys background when he hired him?


    CBS Sports and the Cleveland Plain Dealer have documented 9 confirmed incidents that Meyer and the inner circle knew about in 2014-2016. Did the administration of all 9? Were they reported properly within OSU? How was keeping someone who is now has a significant pattern consistent with treating woman with respect?


    The institution is bigger than the coach and needs to decide what statement about their institutional values they want to make. I am not sure how to deal with the culture of coaches feeling unaccountable and justified to do whatever. Schools need to accelerate the dialogue on how to align their values with the folks who are often the most visible to the public. In the Big 10 alone you have a wife beating cover up, MSU has a pedophile team doc in jail, and well then there's Penn St. the star child for out of control behavior. A great game but the institutions to reclaim control of values as the chase of wins and dollars is having bad consequence.

They will likely finish 5th behind LSU and Mississippi St. Mississippi St will be the huge sleeper this year, they could actually make some noise and knock off some people. LSU/Miami opening weekend will be a fun game. LSU is just a wildcard, I really think Orgeron is a good coach, kinda pulling for them this year.

    I'm just hoping we aren't last in the West. We'll have a great passing game, RB is a huge question along with our entire back 7 on D. I'm hoping Arkansas is a bigger mess than us.

    Likewise to all of this. I’m cautiously optimistic, but I’m also pretty much always prepared for a less than stellar season because we are Ole Miss.

    The fall of our defense the past few seasons has been one of the most disappointing things I’ve seen.

    Maryland places head coach DJ Durkin on administrative leave amid reports of football program's toxic culture and ESPN report following the death of a 19 year player from heatstroke in a May 29 team workout.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...811-story.html

    I did not see the ESPN report on all this. When a player dies in practice there should be an automatic investigation of the circumstances. As a former high school player 73-75 I experienced the old school coaching and training for the sport. It was brutal and it did seperate the weak from the strong. I knew of a kid from another school who went home between morning and afternoon practice jumped in his parents pool and had a cardiac arrest and died. However, this is 2018 and I would think hydration is mandatory not voluntary and from what I hear practice is nothing like it was 40 years ago. People are going after football in this country and this case could be a watershed one for them. I feel for the family involved here. But I can also sense the lawyers circling.

    There is just no place for that.

    There is being a tough football coach, and there is being an asshole that gets people killed and mentally scarred. I mean c'mon, it ain't fucking rocket science.

    Well if the guys an asshole he will pay for it especially in todays culture. Problem is getting the truth here. The head football coach from SC is already opining on this.

    That's like the blue wall. Can't we let evidence come out first before we either put him in jail or exonerate him.

    A kid is dead, and there are accusations of a horrible school environment for those players, but I would encourage Mr. Muschamp and other coaches to just wait.

    The autopsy report is going to be critical here but knowing medicine is not an exact science I would suspect a court fight of epic proportions.

    There is two things:

    1 - is a toxic work environment present at UMD's football program

    2 - through negligence of UMD football staff the young man passed away

    Could be neither, could be one, could be both. If even one of them is true Durkin is gone. If both are true, he will probably never work in football again.

    The outcome is going to be interesting nonetheless.

    The prominent Baltimore law firm that represented Freddie Gray’s family has been hired by the parents of a University of Maryland football player who died last month after collapsing during an outdoor team workout. I personally know some dirt on this lawyer he's a piece of shit.
