Randy Edsall Interview in the Baltimore Sun

There's a good interview of Randy Edsall by Peter Schmuck at the Baltimore Sun today with lots of information on the general direction of the program, but nothing specific concerning new coaches or other personnel matters.

To get an idea of the interview, here's one of the questions and Edsall's answer:

In a nutshell, if you're talking to Terps fans, why is next year going to be different?

Very simple. (Edsall picks up a binder containing facts about the 2011 season.) I just want to make sure I've got my facts right. Because 90 percent of the season-ending two-deeps are going to be back. Nineteen of 22 offensive players will be back. Seventeen of 22 defensive players will be back. Nine of the 12 special teams players will be back. And then you take a look at it and 131/2 of the team's 26 sacks — 52 percent — were posted by freshman: Andre Monroe with five, Lorne Goree 31/2, Alex Twine, [Keith] Bowers, [Mario] Rowson, [Ian] Evans. Then you add three freshman All-Americans, Joe Vellano, who is a second-team All-American and second-team Walter Camp and Associated Press. We've got four guys coming back off medical hardships. Kenny Tate gets another year. Matt Robinson now has three more years left. Isaiah Ross has two. Tyrek Cheeseboro has four now. All of these young men. All of our players, now, understand what the expectations are … what the program is about, so they are going to be more comfortable and understand more things. We had two of the top 10 attendances in the history of Byrd Stadium. Paid attendance increased 10 percent. All those things going forward, plus when you take a look at what's happening on the recruiting trail and you see what's being said out there from the student-athletes, I think that all bodes well for what's going to be happening in the future. I just hope we'll be able to stay healthy."
