|Maryland Athletes Scooters on campus|

The scooters have actually led to many problems amongst their athlete owners. I mean who would’ve guessed that letting athletes drive around on a scooter without a helmet would lead to any problems? Unfortunately some of the consequences have been pretty dire. For instance, while riding on his scooter one Maryland football player Pete DeSouza was struck by a car. Another Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle was involved in a single scooter accident where he broke his clavicle. These two accidents have led the newly instated Maryland football coach Randy Edsall to put a ban on the scooters for the upcoming 2011 season.
Probably a smart move, but I do feel for the football players who never abused their scooter privileges and are being penalized.
