    Well These Guys Are Awful

    Several current University of Maryland football players and people close to the Terrapins program describe a toxic coaching culture under head coach D.J. Durkin before offensive lineman Jordan McNair's death in June after a football workout.

    McNair, who was 19, died two weeks after being hospitalized following a May 29 team workout. He collapsed after running 110-yard sprints, showing signs of extreme exhaustion and difficulty standing upright. No official cause of death has been released, but ESPN reported Friday that he died of heatstroke suffered during the workout and had a body temperature of 106 degrees after being taken to a hospital.

    EDITOR'S PICKS

    Sources: Terps OL had visible issues pre-collapse
    Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair showed signs of extreme exhaustion, had difficulty standing upright while running sprints and had a temperature of 106 degrees before he died of heatstroke, multiple sources told ESPN.

    Over the past several weeks, two current Maryland players, multiple people close to the football program, and former players and football staffers spoke to ESPN about the culture under Durkin, particularly strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who was one of Durkin's first hires at Maryland back in 2015. Among what they shared about the program:

    There is a coaching environment based on fear and intimidation. In one example, a player holding a meal while in a meeting had the meal slapped out of his hands in front of the team. At other times, small weights and other objects were thrown in the direction of players when Court was angry.

    The belittling, humiliation and embarrassment of players is common. In one example, a player whom coaches wanted to lose weight was forced to eat candy bars as he was made to watch teammates working out.

    Extreme verbal abuse of players occurs often. Players are routinely the targets of obscenity-laced epithets meant to mock their masculinity when they are unable to complete a workout or weight lift, for example. One player was belittled verbally after passing out during a drill.

    Coaches have endorsed unhealthy eating habits and used food punitively; for example, a player said he was forced to overeat or eat to the point of vomiting.
    Read the whole article...this looks very very bad.

    I would guess 95%+ football teams are guilty of most of all of this.

    I remember when Brady Hoke was in the news for putting Shane Morris back in when he was clearly concussed, it came out he had made a player at Ball State train outside for 40 minutes in subzero temperatures and the player got frostbite on his fingers.

    I did have my eye on the new Tappan Zee bridge but if you can't help me....Look, I understand every conference has it's baggage and skeletons but since the Penn State scandal broke in 2011 it seems that's the only conference that's been in the news.

    Because the SEC pays enough to keep people quiet.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Didn't pay enough to keep Urban Meyer and his thugs(hello Aaron Hernandez)out of the news. The bidding war for Cam Newton's services is another one. Bobby(sfb)Petrino.

    I get it, most everybody does it. Just not to the degree of some.

    From a CBS Sports article (
    https://www.cbssports.com/college-fo...be-unfair/amp/)

    Since 2011, four schools -- Nebraska, Penn State, Rutgers and Ohio State (twice)-have been sanctioned in major NCAA investigations. That's actually the fewest number of major cases (five total) among the Power Five schools in that span.

    AP Poll out


    Since we know it's a crapshoot, how about this-


    Last 7 years, 11 AP preseason Top 10 teams finished year unranked:

    2017 No. 3 FSU
    2016 No. 10 Notre Dame
    2015 No. 6 Auburn, No. 8 USC, No. 9 Georgia
    2014 No. 4 OU, No. 9 South Carolina
    2013 No. 10 UF
    2012 No. 1 USC, No. 10 Arkansas
    2011 No. 8 Texas A&M
    Who will be it this year?
