For the second time in two weeks Gregg Doyel has thrown in a shot at Randy Edsall and the Maryland football program in his stories that have nothing to do with Maryland football. This one in today's Texas coaching story:
"See, Texas will hire only a great coach. It's Texas football, and Texas football deserves nothing less. You don't hand the Maserati keys to the kid delivering pizza, and you don't hand the Texas football job to Randy Edsall. "
An article from December 4th on Florida State getting a free pass in the championship game included this:
"In Florida State's favor are two enormous, eye-catching wins against ranked foes: 63-0 against No. 25 Maryland on Oct. 5, and 51-14 at No. 3 Clemson two weeks later. In a vacuum, those are shocking. But we don't live in a vacuum, do we? We live -- all together now -- in the real world, and in the real world it turns out Maryland was an overrated flop on Oct. 5, undefeated after a pathetic nonconference schedule. After that 4-0 start to get into the Top 25, the Terps finished the season in a 3-5 slide, all in the ACC, which is a lousy conference. Maryland got blown out by Wake Forest, and Wake Forest went 4-8."
Not sure why Doyle insists on taking shots at Edsall and the Maryland program. I'm not an Edsall fan but don't like reading this kind of stuff on the national level.
