It seems we will no longer be docked three scholarships in football thanks to improved grades. See Here
I am not sure who gets credit for the improvement but hey its good news for the program especially if we are hit by the injury bug in the coming years like we were last year. This may also mean that current walk-ons will have an opportunity to receive an open scholarship. The article also describes how programs such as cross country and swimming received perfect scores and will be canceled shortly... One of RE's biggest goals when he first arrived to MD was to make the players better people on and off the field and while its hard to pin this increase on him, it does show that there is improvement. Hopefully improvements will continue off the field and on the field.
***So... I think the season the NCAA is referring to was actually the RF's last season. Well at least we receive three scholarships back.
- Something to think about: We were docked 3 scholarships for academics but hasn't there been far greater violations by larger schools who received smaller penalties?
