To touch on some much talked about topics pertaining to Maryland Football, here we go. Everyone on here needs to let this season go. We sucked for numerous reasons and we are not going to a bowl and every week seems to get worse and worse. The fire Randy Edsall chants need to stop because of multiple reasons he will not be getting fired any time soon, meaning he will be on the sidelines for the next 4 and probably 5 years. Thank you financially sound Debbie Yow.
There have been a lot of finger pointing at Edsall's media blunders, quite honestly who cares most coaches can't deal with the media correctly and the one's that can are the one's that win. Why do you think Kevin Anderson hired Edsall because he was the only coach that he could hire that made KA look like he has good people skills.
Now the whole Penn State mess that is happening. First off, the MD coaches should not bring this up to a recruit and use it as the selling point to switch to MD. I don't care who you are you don't take advantage of this situation by those means. However, I totally agree that of the 16 man class Penn State has which ranks #18 in the latest ESPN team recruiting rankings, we should reconnect with the 8 or so commits that had interest from MD before this happened. I am sure most of those recruits would be open to hearing about alternatives now for obvious reason. Use the situation to our advantage, but don't directly us it as your selling point!
A realistic turnaround. MD will be competitive again and it may take some time. Houston Nutt is supposedly out the door at Ole Miss. He won 9 games each year for his first two seasons including 2 Cotton Bowl victories, he's had two losing seasons and now he is gone. Moral of this story is, its not always great to start off fast if you cant keep up that pace. My God, look at Friedgen he put together the three best years of modern day Maryland Football and couldnt match it and he was kicked out because of it. Edsall will win just dont expect 10 and 11 win seasons.
I don't always agree with Chuck D. but he makes a great point. Give him time and he will be successful. This mentality of I want it now is getting old amoung the fanbase. We sucked this year, hopefully we bring in a couple talented players and injuries dont happen in the crazy quantities they did this year for 2012. GO Terps!
