Web Sites Present New Dynamic in Recruiting

Colleagues Steve Yanda and Eric Prisbell have a good story in today's paper about how Web sites are changing recruiting. The problem? There is no way to regulate - for recruits, colleges or the NCAA -- these sites. Sure, a school could decline to provide credentials for home games, but much of the time it is to their advantage to have these sites on the recruiting trail. Many Rivals and Scout sites exist primarily because the NCAA will not allow schools to publish or distribute this material; so schools simply "partner" with the Web sites, whose operators can make hundreds of thousands of dollars each off the information.

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

Maryland Football will finish with a 2-10 record.

Maryland's defensive line and linebacker corps are a joke --- no pass rush whatsoever and give up a ton of long yardage plays.

I have seen harder hitting teams in powder puff leagues.

The only hard hits the Terps make - are out of bound plays - which cost them an additional 15 yards - which are quite frequent.

California's running back - Best - will gain 296 yards in the opening game

I love it, when Maryland constantly gets embarrassed on national TV.

Prediction:

California -- 56
Maryland -- 10

It's hilarious to see Maryland win a game - and the very next week get clobbered by a Virginia Tech - Boston College.

It is great to see Maryland go down to a crushing defeat on the football recruiting front (the kids they have received commitments from - are a joke! - taking the bottom of the barrel)

Carolina Blue - Carolina WHITE - Go Tar Heels - Let's go Tar Heels !
