Things have been a little slow lately news wise, so todays Maryland Minute is compiled from stories over the last several days. Enjoy.

Maryland makes plans for synthetic turf at Byrd Stadium - baltimoresun.com
We finally get some confirmation that they are indeed putting in the synthetic turf at Byrd. I hope they're also lowering the field so the first few rows of seats can actually see above the players on the sideline and thus actually let the school charge prime dollar for them. Seems like a rendering will be out in the coming weeks. Should be interesting to see that...

Edsall asks for patience from Terps fans, media
Maryland coach Randy Edsall has come under a wave of scrutiny but says his Terps are progressing. Someone did a fanpost about this that's gotten a lot of attention, so feel free to continue that discussion here.

Baseball continues to improve in Bakich’s third season - The Diamondback - University of Maryland

Nice wrap up on the baseball team. They've come a long way since Bakich took over 3 seasons ago. They just missed the NCAA Tournament this year (they were the highest ranked RPI team to not make it). If they can improve their ACC standing next season, they'll be in good shape to make the NCAA Tourney, which really is amazing.
