Former Maryland QB Tyrrell Pigrome reportedly transfers to Western Kentucky

Former Maryland QB Tyrrell Pigrome reportedly transfers to Western Kentucky

Former Maryland quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome has transferred to Western Kentucky, Pete Thamel reported.

Pigrome is a grad transfer and will, therefore, be immediately eligible to play in the upcoming college football season. During his four years as a Terp, Pigrome appeared in 11 games in three of his four seasons, including his freshman campaign in 2016. However, the quarterback never quite had a lock on the starting position.

In and out as the starter due to his own injuries and other moves, Pigrome's most work came in 2019. In his 11 games, he compiled 719 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Now at Western Kentucky, he'll have the chance to earn the starting role and keep it in what will be his fifth collegiate season. The Hilltoppers went 9-4 in 2019 and concluded the season with a victory in the Servpro First Responder Bowl.

Maryland suspends football workouts after nine positive COVID-19 tests

After this week's on-campus screening, the University of Maryland Athletics has announced nine athletes have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Terps conducted an initial coronavirus testing of 105 student-athletes during the first week of June and none of which resulted in a positive result.

The football team has temporarily suspended voluntary football workouts as a result of these positive tests.

Earlier this week the Big Ten Conference announced that they will only play in-conference matchups for the fall 2020 season.

A poll of 250 college basketball coaches reveals 74% want a semi-normal schedule this year

Several college conferences across the country are preparing for the fall sports season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Big Ten announced on Thursday that it will go to a “conference-only” model for all fall sports. The Pac-12 followed announcing football, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball will play only conference games. Earlier in the week, the Ivy League announced no sports would be played until January 1.

More conferences are likely to follow shortly. But after fall sports, what will happen with winter sports and, specifically, with college basketball? Stadium basketball analyst Jeff Goodman conducted an interesting poll.

Of the 250 Division I head men’s basketball coaches (of a 353 total), 74% want a season with non-conference and conference play. Only 24% of coaches want to push the start of the season to January and play exclusively conference games.

One of the unique aspects of early-season college basketball is the non-conference matchups, sometimes in exotic locations. One of the most notable, the Maui Invitational, is planning to move forward as scheduled.

A handful of local teams are scheduled to travel to tournaments this November. Virginia and Georgetown will both head to Anaheim, Calif. for the Wooden Legacy. VCU is part of an eight-team field at the Charleston Classic and George Mason is reportedly traveling to the Bahamas for the Junkanoo Jam.

There is plenty to be sorted out before the start of the college basketball season but for now, we will take some optimism from the men on the sidelines.
