Yep. Maryland is everybody's homecoming game team of choice. Interesting thing, students at Maryland don't have to pay to go to games at Byrd (there's an athletic fee paid wiith tuition but it's minimal). At Michigan the students pay for each game's ticket (I presume that's the wayvat most "football schools")." Despite not knowing anything about football and caring even less, my daughter bought the tickets.
Nice.
At least she paid for them
Not the taxpayers.

USC sells a student athletics package that includes all home games and basketball games for a reasonable price.  There is a "student section" that is basically first come first served.

Well it looks like the clock is ticking on DJ Durkin. May have to rethink my interest in college football. Tired of jerks running programs

Just read the ESPN article.  Sounds like it was definitely an old school approach...  I think there was a movie on Bear Bryant's early coaching and it sounds a bit like that--where they almost want kids throwing up to toughen them up.  Just doesn't fit with today's values and then obviously you run the risk of an outlier incident like McNair.  A real tragedy there.

They didnít.

Again, ludicrous semantics on your part.

It makes you appear petty.  Is that your intention?
My intention is argue.
FIFY.


Argue?
In a College Football Chat Room?
You canít be serious.

Did SUBURBAN LIAR, or C.H.U.D....

resign yet...I was distracted by golf...,

...just when you thought the SEC (FLA, et. al.) had a franchise on mental and physical abuse of men whose meals depend on compliance with Sadists, when they are allowed to hydrate, funny that hydration or lack thereof separates the pussies from the ďmenĒ...

...well, now the BIGSMALLs and TOSU/MD have really lost the plot on sports...a shame, that you spend a summer with a joke of a president and canít shift focus to football without realizing that everything is depressing and sad.

Thanks, CHUD, and FUCK YOU!!!

Should have left Maryland back in the minor leagues of CFB where they fit in and you would make excuses for them.

Right, Urban doesn't need anyone to make excuses for him. He makes his own.

The person my post recerenced by implication is D. J. Durkin and the program is Maryland. But scratch that itch.
