A college basketball standout whose NBA dreams ended because of a rare disease is a new spokesman for the Marfan Foundation.
Maryland will have an interesting schedule this year obviously playing some big teams. A game that will be played at home is Ohio State and a few away games in clued Michigan and Penn State. Right now, on paper the Terps have some great players including a quarterback, great receivers, and great running backs.
What is the scoop with, of course, Johnny Manziel? Seems like everyone is pretty opinionated about the quarterback. Is there an upside for Manziel? Manziel made everyone look throughout his college career. One thing that really made people look was in the Chik-Fil-A Bowl. Felder noticed “NFL throws” from Manziel, especially in that bowl. Manziel is good but can he get better? Is he an NFL starter? Potientially, yeah Manziel could be a starter.

Kentucky Power Forward Joel Embiid looked like the top pick in the draft until a recent stress fracture caused his stock to drop in the draft.

It looked like Embiid was going to go first, with Jabari Parker going second and Andrew Wiggins going to go third. So now it puts Cleveland in an interesting situation.”

So what does Michael Felder see down the road for schools and the NCAA? Michael comments that “bigger schools want to give there players cash.” They can afford. The smaller schools, obviously, feel the opposite because they can not afford this. The NCAA might have to change a little bit about they are governed.
Pat Connaughton says he’s reached an agreement with the Baltimore Orioles that will allow him to return to Notre Dame in late July to prepare for his final season of college basketball.
Virginia’s Josh Sborz last started a month ago, and when he walked two Maryland hitters in the first inning of the deciding game of the Charlottesville Regional it looked like the decision to put the sophomore back on the mound might backfire.
