Don't rush to judgment about UM, McNair

University of Maryland football players reveal plans to honor teammate Jordan McNair. (Kevin Richardson / Baltimore Sun video)

I read with interest the article, "Mike Miller joins chorus blasting Wallace Loh, University of Maryland athletics leadership" (Aug. 30), in The Baltimore Sun. A key phrase in the article is, "....if it turns out the ESPN report was accurate."

The ESPN report of a “toxic culture” surrounding University of Maryland football lacks credibility in that it relies almost entirely on unnamed sources. The recently formed external commission will issue a creditable report after interviewing student-athletes, their parents and staff members.

I believe it is better to wait for creditable information rather than act on hearsay and innuendo. Duke University completely blotched the handling of its lacrosse situation in a rush to judgment without facts. The UM Board of Regents does not want to follow suit.
