Discontent and grumbling have reached some in the media about Edsall's policies and 'militaristic' style. Its Edsalls first year, and he has only had a few games under his belt here, but I'm venturing to ask you anyway, is Edsall good for Maryland? Recently, Eric Prisbell interviewed Ferrara and Dorsey, which you probably all have read. In case you haven't here are both links to the Q & A, and his subsequent article.
There have been successful coaches on the past and present who have a similar coaching style, the article tells us some are happier, and some are not so happy with the change. Is his style going to produce a wonderful winning legacy for the Terps, helping them achieve better results than our most recent history? Many great coaches of the past started out with lousy first seasons as the pain of change was taking place. Ferrara says that Edsall is great for students who wish to do well in their academcis. We know most student athletes don't become professional players anyway, so academic success surely is an important point. Or do you believe he Is a disaster, the worst that could happen to Maryland, with a too uptight coach? And finally, is it too soon to judge success or failure?
