AD Search to Take "3 or 4 Months"
That means we're talking September or October, then. That's reasonable.
ACC Now's JP Giglio Previews Maryland
This should've been in yesterday's MM, but I missed it. Not exactly time-sensitive material, luckily. He's a smart guy, too.
If your own life depended on winning a basketball game and you only had two hours to put a team together and coach them up, Gary Williams should be your first phone call. Mike Krzyzewski has a more complete resume and Roy Williams is a better recruiter, but as Gary Williams proved (again) last year with a 13-3 ACC record with an undermanned, overachieving lineup, he can out X-and-O anyone in the ACC.
As for how Maryland will do? He thinks the schedule will keep Maryland pretty relelvant.
Maryland won't win 13 ACC games again but the Terps aren't going to fall of the map, either, even in a quasi-rebuilding season. The rest of the ACC (save for Duke and VT) is either bad, in transition or both and you know Gary Williams is worth an extra win or two. Mosley and Jordan Williams must step up, and some combination of the freshmen (likely Mychal Parker, Terrell Stoglin and Pe'Shon Howard) need to make an impact, but another NCAA tournament trip and a 10-6 ACC record is there for the taking.
ACC Now - Summer Hoops Preview '11: The Picks
...and he picks MD for 5th next year. Would you complain about that? I wouldn't.
Recruiting checkup: Maryland Terrapins - ESPN
Despite a slow in momentum, ESPN's Jamie Newberg still has faith in Maryland's recruiting. If Fridge/Frank can pull in one of Connor Wujciak or Travis Hughes, one of Kouandjio, Jennings, or Countess, and one of Damiere Byrd, Quinton Jefferson, or Quinta Funderburke, I'll feel a lot better.
Sizing Up The Stoutest Front Sevens In College Football For 2010 - Tomahawk Nation
Also known as: size only matters when you know how to use it. Maryland didn't. They were the third biggest team in the ACC/SEC, and one of the worst defenses.
Ralph Among 19 Coaches With a Decade Tenure, Probably First to Go
Not a fan of linking B/R, but I did find this interesting. Fridge is a member of a rather select group: only 18 other coaches have been at their current school a decade. The rest have pretty solid job security.
Recruiting Report: New Terps women's hoops pledge realizes dream
Gotta love people that have wanted to be Terps since they were in middle school. Hopefully she's part of the group that helps to get UMD back to an elite level.
