Maryland Football Coach Reinstated After Player Died of Heatstroke. Then This Happened the Next Day.

Very strange situation.

Published

On Tuesday of this week, the University of Maryland Board of Regents decided to reinstated DJ Durkin as head football coach of the school’s team, a decision which literally lasted only 24 hours.

After the school received massive backlash for their decision concerning Durkin, they decided to unilaterally boot him to the curb. So what’s the deal with all of this wishy-washy stuff? Apparently one of the players on the team died from heatstroke earlier this year.

Durkin was placed on paid administrative leave on August 11 after one of his players, offensive lineman Jordan McNair, 19, tragically died of heatstroke suffered during a team workout on May 29. Durkin was reinstated by the board of regents on Tuesday, a decision that prompted strong pushback from the community, influential politicians, and some Maryland players, and with which University of Maryland President Wallace D. Loh ultimately disagreed.

“Yesterday, the University System of Maryland Board of Regents announced numerous recommendations, including employment decisions about specific personnel on our campus. I accepted the Board’s recommendations. At the same time, I announced my retirement as president in June 2019,” President Loh said in a statement Wednesday.

“Since returning to campus after yesterday’s press conference, I have met with the leadership of the Student Government Association speaking on behalf of numerous student organizations; the Senate Executive Committee; Deans; department chairs; and campus leadership. The overwhelming majority of stakeholders expressed serious concerns about Coach DJ Durkin returning to the campus,” he continued.

“The chair of the Board of Regents has publicly acknowledged that I had previously raised serious concerns about Coach Durkin’s return. This is not at all a reflection of my opinion of Coach Durkin as a person. However, a departure is in the best interest of the University, and this afternoon Coach Durkin was informed that the University will part ways,” wrote Loh. “This is a difficult decision, but it is the right one for our entire University. I will devote the remaining months of my presidency to advancing the needed reforms in our Athletic Department that prioritize the safety and well-being of our student-athletes.”

ESPN went on to point out that Durkin has $8.5 million left on the deal he made with the school, which means if Maryland fires him without cause, which is what has happened now, he will receive $5.5 million, which is 65 percent of the total negotiated for in his contract.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
