U-Va QB to Sit Out, But Why Now?

I'd love to hear an explanation about this. How does former West Springfield standout Peter Lalich play last week but get suspended for this week's game against Connecticut? Maybe U-Va. is not calling it a suspension. Every story I've read uses the terms "won't travel" and "step back." But really, it is.

The short story: Lalich was cited was underage purchasing of alcohol over the summer and last week was charged with violation terms of his probation. He still play this past Saturday against Richmond and Coach Al Groh later said that a report Lalich had consumed alcohol and smoked marijuana while on probation was incorrect, as did Lalich.

While nothing in court seems to have changed - Lalich is scheduled to appear Sept. 26 - something must have happened to force the change in his playing status.

Maryland's defensive line is a complete joke.

I have seen a better pass rush by Pop Warner and CYO teams.

Prediction for Maryland's upcoming game --

Califonia - 48
Maryland - 13

Maryland will finish with a 3-9 record (good for last place in the ACC - even behind Duke)

I am glad that Maryland is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

Jelani Jenkins and Travis Hawkins will be signing with the University of Florida.

Don't quit your day job and don't move to Vegas. I don't see you making it as a sports handicapper nor as a professional gambler.
