If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
What if we ...
just take them and kansas and call it a day
This. And that whole proving my point thing.
thats a great offer...
Maryland could actually be good with the right head coach imo. Edsell is obviously not it. If they found a guy who could lock up the talent in the Baltimore/ DC area, they could be solid. Just my two cents though.
no.. that is all
Edsall was a decent coach at UConn and UMD is situated in very good recruiting territory, so there is no reason they should be as bad as they are. And B10 money should help in terms of improving facilities and luring better assistant coaches. But they are in for a rough go of it on day one. Even IU is trending upward, which means they will be in a brutal division.
UMD's 2014 B10 Schedule
@ IU - 50/50
OSU - L
Iowa - L
@ WIS - L
@ PSU - L
MSU - L
@ UM - L
RUT - 50/50
B10 Record: 1-7
We recruit better than half the conference and finally have some semblance of a staff capable of taking advantage of the local talent. We are a 7/8 win team last year if we had our starting quarterback and I'm sure the dialogue would be a hell of a lot different if all the sweet message board posters see 2 wins in year 1 to 7 wins in year 2.
Maybe hes terrible but I have a hard time believing a guy who could win 7-8 games every year at a garbage spot like UConn with recruiting classes ranked in the 70's won't be able to get to bowl games at Maryland with a better staff and recruiting classes ranked in the 30's.

Of course because it is an easy target. Unfortunately for you, it wasn't going to make sense so you had to bail out of your 2011 joke.
OSU's fans are obnoxious and we need a new fan base to shift our unconditional hate to replace Duke.
They we're all just rehashed Michael Jackson jokes anyway that people tried to tell & act like no one heard before.
Pretty cut and dry really.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Maryland will fit in the BIG nicely imo, someone mentioned MSU, Id say depending on the coaching hire that's pretty accurate. BTW don't sleep on Locksley recruitingwise in the Baltimore area, guy can pay em ta git em as good as anyone..
Will be an easy win most years, they are surrounded by tons of talent, but they aren't exactly landing most of that talent. Will be real fun beating them year after year, their fan base is delusional.
Some of you will be surprised. Fear the turtle. [turtles]
We might have the most cynical fan base in the country
No they were not a loss for the ACC. Their replacement (Louisville) is a better brand with a more energized fan base. Md's athletic department has had much financial difficulty to the extent that it has had to drop or suspend a number of its athletic programs. Very few in the ACC are mourning their loss..
Sorry but the ACC is a better football conference than the Big 10, and that is not saying much...
shift all you want.. b/c 10 years from now Maryland will still be winless against tOSU.
