so deadspin put together their top 25 for this year and felt the need to include us at the very bottom. Ranked #120.
we get absolutley shredded
Megalomaniacal athletic director Kevin Anderson fired coach Ralph Friedgen after an 8-4 season, an ACC coach of the year award, and a blowout bowl victory. That was a fine season by the Terps, and it was as good a season as Maryland—a non-football school in a state that only cares about the NFL— ever deserves. Anderson's power play—dumping the rotund and reasonably successful Fridge in favor of ahistorical martinet Randy Edsall, to turn the Terps into a Serious Football Program—is doomed and embarrassing. Maybe if Edsall knows what he's doing, after he's done taking the names off the jerseys and making the uppity players conform to his grooming code, the Terps will rise all the way to BCS snubbee status, before the coach ditches the school for a real football program and the NCAA swoops in to investigate how Maryland got top talent to go to a school where nobody cares about football, and then (because Maryland is a school where nobody cares about football) the death penalty will come down, and we'll never have to watch this kind of stupid charade again.
