Certainly not after their BOR just announced what they did and brought him back.

Definitely can't let a nuisance like a player dying on your watch get in the way of the bottom line. It's not like the president of Under Armour is a major booster or anything so they would've been real strapped for cash if they had to buy him out.

Or they could have fired him with cause. Durkin just apparently has strong allies who chose to shield him and it's tarnishing the image of the institution.

Glad they did the right thing here. Doesn't fix the problem but it's a step.

Can’t believe how bad they botched that. Should have been a clean removal right off the bar.

People get paid well into 6 figures to make these decisions. It's unbelievable how bad some of them are at it.

Safe to say Durkin will end up being Meyer’s defensive coordinator next year so he can replace one shitbag with another just so he feels comfortable.

Governor Hogan put on the pressure to fire him. Smart with him up for re-election. He was probably going to win anyway though.

I'll tell you who has it the hardest: White Men. We make the unpopular, difficult decisionsóthe tough choices. We land on the Moon, Normandy Beach and they resent us.

So apparently one of the Maryland players that spoke to investigators and said the culture was toxic, got jumped and beaten by another player upon Durkin’s reinstatement. So, yeah, not toxic at all. If I’m his parents, I’m suing the balls out of everyone involved.

Pretty sure I read the coaches put up a mandatory sign in sheet outside the office where these interviews were happening. Just awful.

Not just any player, it was the backup punter. Oh, and this:

Quote:
Toward the end of the practice, another player attacked Barber, attempting to punch him in the face, Barber said. While the two teammates were fighting, others tried to intervene and grabbed Barberís arms behind his back, he said. That allowed the other player to punch Barber repeatedly in the face, leaving him with a black eye, needing multiple stitches on his forehead and a dislocated shoulder, Barber said.

But just as with McNair, I'm guessing the same MD fans are saying Durkin can't be everywhere and be responsible for this sort of thing...

Penn state didn’t get wiped from the map, doubt that a player dying would move the needle.

Big Ten really doesn't have anyone that wouldn't get embarrassed in the playoffs.

Since this post the badgers have run 13 straight times and scored TDs on both drives. Where do I collect my offensive coordinator paycheck?

Iowa about to give up 50 to Purdue. The middle of the field is apparently off limits to defenders.
