Maryland Must Solve Clouded QB Situation to Improve in 2013 (Rant Sports)

  1. Another bit worth reading from yesterday is Dan Wetzel’s column about the NCAA fools and about money in college athletics.

    The column is titled “NCAA’s mishandling of Miami case reason for college athletes to get endorsement deals” and can be found here.

  2. Terps have six quarterbacks on the roster for next year. That had BETTER be enough. Sheesh.

    As for the Miami case and the NCAA screw-up … wow. Not even sure what to say. Some heads should roll for this mess. I guess it may be good for Miami as far as that is concerned … but the whole thing is ridiculous.

At this point, the power conferences really should just break off, pay the athletes and put an end to this. No point answering to an inconsistent figurehead organization that can’t even keep its own house in order.
