Maryland Unveils “The Maryland Guarantee”

The University of Maryland has announced it will be one of the first NCAA Division I institutions to offer a lifetime degree guarantee for student-athletes in all sports. In addition, the University is incorporating the promise of exhausted eligibility aid into financial aid agreements.
Beginning in November of 2014-15, ‘The Maryland Way Guarantee’ will provide all incoming student-athletes with a multi-year scholarship guarantee. Pursuant to this program, should a student-athlete exhaust his or her eligibility prior to graduating, Maryland will guarantee his or her aid will continue through graduation. If a student-athlete is injured and unable to compete, we will guarantee his or her aid will continue through graduation.

Additionally, Maryland will provide tuition, books and fees for any student-athlete who leaves the institution in good academic standing and returns to complete his or her degree.
Other institutions have extended this guarantee to “revenue sports” including football and men’s and women’s basketball, but Maryland is one of the first to provide a lifetime degree guarantee for student-athletes in all sports.

Relationship Between Jim Harbaugh and 49er Brass Getting Worse?

from Jason LaCanfora of cbssports.com

Things are not getting better behind the scenes for the San Francisco 49ers. There was a persistent rumble throughout the combine about the extent of the rift between coach Jim Harbaugh and the team’s front office. It doesn’t seem like it will go away, and there is increasing buzz that the team might have to decide between Harbaugh or GM Trent Baalke.

The men are barely speaking, I’m told, and almost all communication is through email. Harbaugh also has a strained relationship with team president Paraag Marathe, sources said, and he has clashed with many within the organization. It could prove untenable. If anything, the impression I got this week was that the situation there is actually much worse than how it has been portrayed in the media, and helps explain the delay in giving a new deal to the coach, who has two years left on a contract he has outperformed.

Browns owner confirms team went after Harbaugh
Harbaugh has done nothing but reach, at least, the NFC Championship Game since coming to San Francisco three years ago, and the longer this goes on, the worse it might get. To almost anyone I posited the question to, the response was pretty much the same — there is no way they can’t extend Harbaugh. But then again, in the NFL, you never know.

I’ve long expected Dolphins owner Stephen Ross to attempt to trade for Harbaugh, and we all know he already tried to hire him before firing a coach in the past. I’m also not surprised that the Browns made an attempt to land him as well, although, from what I have heard of that situation, Cleveland’s approach did not get very far. Still, if other teams sense a vulnerability there, they will continue to explore, and it’s hard to imagine Harbaugh coaching out a lame-duck year there in 2015 if he hasn’t received an extension by then.
