This sounds like a terrible game of "would you rather" but...

You're an AD at XYZ-U.

So, would you rather have to hire Randy Edsall or Mark Turgeon?

Before Basketball season it was a no brainer I want Turgeon. Now? it's close.

And I know we're only a quarter way through the hoops season and Edsall has a bowl game. (so Edsall has an extra 3/4ths of a season on Turgeon here at Maryland.)

Full disclosure, I have not been an Edsall fan since day one. I never said I wanted Mike Leech, but I thought Edsall was the wrong hire. and I would have screamed from the mountain tops that Turgeon was a great hire. But now...

I think the answer becomes I would rather hire Edsall. What are Turgeon's signature wins? home against Duke last year during the flash-mob game? okay, that's a great win. But Edsall has at least as good wins. The Maryland pride game over (an admittedly depleted) Miami, or even more recently in Blacksburg. Edsall is actually showing promise that when his team isn't dismantled by injuries he can put together a reasonable year. We're going bowling this year!

Turgeon? we were flat in 2 or our 3 meaningful games this year, UConn was good, Oregon State and tosu were terribad. The rest of the year the only meaningful games Turgeon can win are home to Notre Dame, at UNC, at Duke, and home to Cuse. If you're being generous you can throw in our "rivalry" games with Pitt in there. Barring some unexpected rise from one of our ACC foes.

I'm not there yet, but I might be beginning to turn on my steadfast loyalty to Turgeon. I'll leave you with this question.

Would you rather hire Mark Turgeon or Randy Edsall? Because right now we're stuck in the unfortunate situation of having both.
