I got an Edsall. The University of Maryland made it official yesterday, naming Randy Edsall as its new head football coach. He seems like a good guy and a good coach. He built Uconn’s football program from the ground up. This year the Huskies played in a BCS bowl game (now they got stomped by Oklahoma and made the Fiesta Bowl because the Big East Conference is a fraud, but that’s a topic for another day). Quite frankly, Edsall sounds a lot like Ralph Friedgen, except in better shape. Hey, I was all for showing Ralph the door. If you were bringing someone exciting in to take over (ie Mike Leach), I want Maryland to be a strong football program and I think it can be. Unfortunately, the program hasn’t been relevant since Bobby Ross coached there in the 80s. I hope I’m wrong, but I dont think this hire changes anything.
