2010 Military Bowl, Maryland Vs. East Carolina: Four Maryland Players Are Ineligible For Game Due To Academic Reasons

It looks like Maryland will not be at full strength going into the Military Bowl, and it's not because of injury. According to The Washington Post's Steve Yanda, four players are ineligible for today's game:

Four Maryland football players will miss Wednesday's Military Bowl against East Carolina due to academic reasons, according to a press release issued by the school's athletic department.

Senior defensive end Drew Gloster, junior wide receiver Quintin McCree, junior wide receiver Ronnie Tyler and redshirt freshman offensive guard Pete White will not participate in today's contest.

Well, that's not a great way to go into Ralph Friedgen's final game at Maryland. The question is, who of this group will be missed the most? Three of the four players had played in every game, but did not have a great deal of playing time. However, if you were to go by the stats, it looks like McCree could be missed the most. The junior receiver caught 16 passes in 12 games, for nearly 200 yards and a touchdown. With this expected to be an offensive game, quarterback Danny O'Brien will need all the help he can get.
