Using the following scale this is what Mark Schlabach and Heather Dinich here is what they had to say about us.
5: Elite program with potential to be a BCS bowl contender every season
4: Above-average program with potential to join the sport’s elite in the near future
3: Average program with recent mediocre results, but seems to be building momentum
2: Average program with recent success, but seems to be headed in wrong direction
1: Below-average program with little success in past or future
A coaching change was probably inevitable, but former Connecticut coach Randy Edsall’s conservative coaching style might not inject much enthusiasm into a Maryland program that could really use some new life.
Counterpoint: The players I’ve spoken to this offseason seem to really have embraced Edsall’s militant style, and he’s well-respected among his peers. He is a proven winner, but there is a ceiling at Maryland as long as the program continues to recruit average talent.

I can't wait till Coach Edsall lives up to his promises so that the so called "experts" will finally give up some love/respect....of course even if we do win instead of saying congrats on a job well done, they'll just say it was a fluke.
