One veteran Maryland player, who spoke to a Post reporter privately about his feelings about Edsall, expressed some displeasure with Edsall’s strict approach, saying that the coach has stifled individuality and created a militaristic atmosphere around the Gossett Team House. The player, who spoke anonymously so he could talk freely, said he would keep his spirits up because he had just three more months before he left the program.
— via WaPo There are a million and one caveats to something like this, but it fits too well into the popular emerging storyline to ignore entirely. It's never good when players speak out against the coach, but I'm pretty sure every team in the country as at least one disgruntled player. Given that this is a new coach, it's pretty standard to have a bunch of disgruntled players. This is more molehill than mountain. That said, there is some minor concern on my part that the player is forthcoming with this information. If this spreads, the season could get messy. If it's more or less isolated, as I'm guessing it is, it's not a huge deal.
