Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist tweets about Maryland-Ohio State

If one were to construct the most perfect tweet about college basketball written by a rock star, it would probably be the one sent out by Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea while he (presumably) watched Sunday's game between Maryland and Ohio State.

Airing nationally on CBS, he tweeted the following:

Melo Trimble and Marc Loving. Nice. Trimble finished with a game-high 20 points, while Loving had nine.

The next logical question would be get Flea's take on the mood of Diamond Stone's name. 

But this isn't the first time Flea has made an appearance in the college basketball world. Back in 2012 when the NCAA was investigating then-UCLA recruit and current Minnesota Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad, he wore a "FREE SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD" shirt while performing the national anthem at a game against Indiana State.

Even more reason to listen to some throwback RHCP on a Sunday.

Governor Hogan issues statement on D.J. Durkin, Maryland football

D.J. Durkin, head football coach at the University of Maryland, was placed on paid administrative leave Saturday as the school investigates claims of abuse and actions which may have led to the June death of 19-year-old offensive lineman Jordan McNair. 

The Randallstown, Md. native collapsed during an outdoor team workout on May 29 and died two weeks later. ESPN is reporting his death to be the result of an official heatstroke. 

On Sunday, Governor Larry Hogan shared his thoughts on the matter: 

Wallace D. Loh, president of the University of Maryland, issued his own statement Saturday sharing "I am profoundly disturbed by the media reports yesterday about verbally abusive and intimidating conduct by Maryland football coaches and staff towards our student-athletes on the team." 

Loh also announced Matt Canada will serve as interim head football coach.

Durkin is preparing to enter his third season at Maryland. The team begins the 2018 season September 1 at home hosting Texas.
