    Maryland warned it could lose accreditation

    Those wacky, semi bankrupt, idiotic Terps take another blow:

    So does that mean: Middle States Commission of Higher Education > Southern Association of Colleges and Schools ?

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    We need a schematic of who has what power. There's a university with a president, but then some larger, state-wide university board of regents (w/ responsibility for more than just the one university)? Does the UMD have its own board, too? I don't necessarily have an issue with a board usurping authority of one administrator -- the board's job is to set overall direction and be in ultimate control. But this seems like layers upon layers (though I'm not sure of that). No matter what decisions are made and who ultimately makes them, so long as some couches are burned and some sort of inferiority complex is given voice to, we'll know that Maryland is still Maryland.

    I didn't get a harrumpf out of that guy!

    A whole lot of sound and fury. I doubt anything of substance at issue.

    Academia and politics. A bunch of hot air blowing all over the place.

    Agree nothing will happen, but anything that embarrasses them further (shameless as they are) is fine by moi.

    No need to embarrass them further -- just remind everyone of the facts.

    Hot day in May -- lengthy workout.

    A player, Jordan McNair, is in trouble and collapses.

    It is not noticed immediately by the football staff.

    There is nothing available anywhere near the field that could treat a 300-pount player (or a 110-pound ballboy) for heat stroke. Like ice, for example.

    The ambulance does not arrive for 45 minutes (IIRC). The player does not reach the hospital for another half-hour.

    Jordan dies 12 days later.

    After an investigation, the head coach D.J. Durkin is suspended (and the head of conditioning is fired). President Loh is on a path to fire Durkin.

    The Board of Regents, which has no control over staffing, issues a public recommendation to retain him. Loh complies and then announces his own resignation.

    All hell breaks loose in the university community, with the Governor of Maryland, and among the general public. The decision is reversed. The chair of the Regents resigns. Loh rescinds his resignation.

    or, the Len Bias facts. IIRC, Bias did not earn any credits his final (spring) semester. IIRC, only five black basketball players graduated during Lefty's final decade.
