Friday, Forfeits,and Football

Wow. We have a lot to discuss today.

Yet another Maryland High School has had to forfeit games, and this time, its a team already in the playoffs. Cancel that bus ride to Indian Head Chopticon, Lackey, the 3A South Region Champs are now coming to Morganza.

The Chargers join teams in PG, Howard, and Frederick Counties who have had to give up wins. As Vince Lombardi said, "What the hell is going on out here?"

I have often wondered whose job it is to check on these kinds of things because when reporters call schools, the AD says call this person, who then says I have no knowledge of whats going on....Perhaps schools need to take a page from the NCAA book and assign a compliance officer whose job is to check on residency issues, academic eligibility etc......just an idea...

My son played basketball with Georgetown's Austin Freeman a couple of years ago. Freeman helped him with is free throw shooting and my son said, "Dad, He's really good."

Last night, Freeman had a thunderous jam for the Hoyas as they routed Michigan. Just think how good he and fellow frosh Chris Wright will be in January.

The CAA is really good people. Last night, Northeastern was the latest CAA team to be a headache for a high profile conference team. The Huskies fought back from a six-point halftime deficit before losing to Maryland in Overtime. James Gist had a career best 27 for the Terps.

Unless Maryland's guards start making better decisions and stop fouling, the Terps will stuggle badly Monday with UCLA.

Joe Miller and I call the action of the MIAA B Conference title game on CN8. The game will air Saturday at 12:30 and should be a great game.

Scott Zolak and I will call the action of Navy and Northern Illinois, live on CSTV at 3:30 on Saturday.
