Plank encourages Maryland fans to embrace Edsall
This post was edited by artielange 22 months ago
PR project started...
I'm thinking NO.
Now go buy us Mike Leach in 2 years, Plank.
Love Kevin and UA, but $1.4 million in 5 years ain't a whole lot of cheese. I hate to be bitter and criticize how others spend their wealth, but that's where I am right now.
I'll buy in...only if UA starts making Rangoon shirts.
How does it feel to have Kevin Plank respond to you directly?
"Randy Edsall is a good, strong, decent man who is working his tail off on behalf of the University of Maryland," Plank said. "And there are more people that want to spend their days burning things down than building it up. At least just stop rooting against him. You know, give the guy a chance."
Fuck Edsall. I gave that POS a chance. Jesus, look at what he's done to our football program in the short time he's been here.
Go away, KA!
Yeah that did surprise me. I figured he had probably donated close to 10 mil by now.
1) since the report was done last year, it was most likely not a 5 year span for the 1.4 mil.
2) the report only includes his foundation and company, not his personal donations. so you don't know how much he has actually donated.
real fans are pulling for a winless season...they'd have to fire him then right?
With all due respect for KP, maybe if Edsall got his arrogant head out of his arrogant ass more people would "give him a chance". Actually, I think we all "gave him a chance", but his my way or the highway, up yours to the media, eliminating any/all vestiges of the previous regime, and taking a team that went 9-4 with a lot of kids coming back, had the ACC ROY at QB, running off good players and going 2-10, soured the bulk of long time Terp boosters.
Maybe Edsall ought to give the fans a chance. The folks on these boards will still be Terp fans long after Edsall is gone.
King Penguins, South Georgia Island
The Rangoon list of fail has been talked about endlessly, but aside from an inexcusable 2-10 record most importantly to me is that he has screwed over and alienated A LOT of kids who chose to come to Maryland and be Terps.
Like many I hated the hire, but like most had opened my mind to Edsall at the
beginning of last season. Since the opener he has done nothing but take a shit on this program. I will always love Maryland and Maryland football, but will never support this fraudulent bufoon. Take his career sub .500 record and 1 lifetime win over a top 25 team and GTFO. I will still be here however long it takes for that to happen.
KP doesn't have enough money to make me like Rangoon.
Let's hope Kliff Kingsbury is available when time comes around to get rid of the Goon.

Sounds like an edsall callout to me!
What did you expect him to say? "Fuck rangoon. I can't wait till tat MFer is outta here and I can get my guy hired." He had to say what he said. I'm not in the know, but KP is a smart man.
If you have a problem with how we do things, this isn't the place for it. PM me directly if you don't like it Kevin. I'm locking this article.
Maybe Plank used his influence to get it inserted? This way, if it doesn't work out, he's ''on record'' as not having been involved in the decision. If it does work out, then he's ''on record'' as pushing for Edsall to be given a chance. Wins either way.
Lots and lots of very important donors are very supportive of Edsall, for what that's worth to anyone. The recruiting efforts seem to support that.
Nice, I love Tracy Morgan.
KP must love off-field winning.
Wait, some of you actually think this PR nonsense is in any way related to Plank's real life opinion on Edsall as our football coach? Jesus fucking Christ...
Md fans= dumb in so many ways
I don't understand how your first sentence leads to your second sentence.
