D1scourse Patrick Stevens Anderson was asked directly if Ralph would definitely be back in 2011....KA: "I'll sit down & everybody will understand where we're going ... w/the program. At this point, I'm not going to answer that question" Patrick Stevens via Twitter

Interesting that AD Kevin Anderson backs down from saying Ralph will definitely be back in 2011. Also, Stevens said that John Donovan will call the plays at the Military Bowl. Stay tuned for how this all plays out...this has been one crazy circus...

According to our source, Head Coach Ralph Friedgen is going to let AD Deborah Yow know if he is going to fire Offensive Coordinator this afternoon. On November 30, we were the first to report that if Head Coach Ralph Friedgen wants to come back as Head Coach he must fire Offensive Coordinator James Franklin. If not, Friedgen will be dismissed, according to our source. The school will than have to pay over a $4 million buyout. All of the seven assistant coaches are out on the road recruiting.

Football Coach Scoop Let's just say that these guys don't look like the most reputable source in the world. I get a feeling that no one knows what's going on, but maybe they have a source that knows something. I recognize that keeping Fridge and firing Frank is the most feasible economic decision, but it doesn't do anything to help this team now or in the long run. David will post a full story on it pretty soon.

I've talked to a half-dozen boosters who have said they knew of no private efforts to raise money to buy out [Friedgen's] contract. Of course, they can't rule out that the university might come up with the funds on its own if Friedgen were let go.

Jeff Barker. The pendulum swings back? The University can't come up with all the money on its own, but it's possible that they're getting the dough from a few high-level guys.

The future of Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen is now in doubt, and a buyout of more than $4 million will not prevent the school from making a change, according to sources who have been briefed on the financial details of Friedgen's contract. Friedgen's fate is expected to be determined in a postseason meeting with school officials, the sources said, and Friedgen may have to make multiple staff changes to save his job.

If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, we did it. If anything goes really good, then you did it. That’s all it takes to get people to win football games for you.

Sound familiar? This is a quote from former Maryland coach (no, really) Bear Bryant, and something Ralph Friedgen could really take some advice from (big h/t to Coaches Hot Seat Blog). Ralph is more like: "If anything goes bad, it's luck's fault. If anything goes semi-good, the players didn't execute, but at least they fought hard. If anything goes really good, then I did it." It would be so much easier to swallow this whole thing if he took the Bear Bryant approach and took blame for the losing.

I realize the expectations are a lot higher, but we’ve played three tough games against three good teams.

Ralph Friedgen, via Patrick Stevens. Ralph isn't saying the right things right now. Is a 52-13 loss considered playing a tough game now? Since when are JMU and MTSU good teams?
