That's right IF you bet against them. I've taken theTerps and the points too!
Come on out and get your whoopin!
The pants are the same cut as last years. They changed the piping and the pattern in the panels. Last years black pants had that ugly gradient on them though.
Good programs worry about winning games, what bowl they are going to this time of year. We worry about STUPID UNIFORMS COMBINATIONS. Check yo'self....Randy Edsall is bad for your health.
We had numerous threads about what bowl we could get to prior to our 2nd, 3rd and 4th string QBs getting hurt.
Randy Edsall would have struggled with or without his arsenal of QB's the last 4 games. He is NOT a good coach. I can't figure out why people defend this guy to the death, but took a dump on Ralph. Edsall has no ties to MD, is 6-15 over nearly 2 years, and is socially a debacle by all accounts.
Let's review this transformative excellence.....we are staring down 2 years with NO BOWL, 4 wins as the high water mark, a wait until next year attitude by the fan base, dwindling attendance to say the least, and an over matched coach. Sometimes you have to cut ties and move on....this is one of those times.
Last year he could NOT WIN because of Ralph's kids not wanting to play for him, this year it is injuries to ALL the QB's. What is it going to be next year? Because I feel as a longtime fan he better win at least 7-8 games in 2013....and that will not be easy with ODU, AT UCONN, WVU, FIU, VT, UNC, at FSU, Clemson, AT NC ST, AT WAKE, UVA , BC...5-6 of those games will be BIG HURDLES.
People defend him? Where are these people?
I don't think it's unreasonable to say there's a good chance this team is in a bowl if CJ Brown is in at QB.
without a doubt they are in a bowl with CJ Brown, but that was not the case. You play with the cards you are dealt. This situation sucks right now because they could have won the game with ANY of the 4 QB's had they played today. But, it is one thing after another with this guy. Before you know it we will be in Year 4 of this circus and we will be at best a 6-6 team. I have HIGH expectations for MD. I realize they are not LSU, USC, Florida etc....but they should not be in the position they are in currently.
When you go to the home games, buy tickets, support the Terrapin Club and have to watch this crap week after week it becomes real frustrating as a fan. And yes, there are people who defend Edsall...face it, the guy has a free pass the rest of this year and will be 4-8 on November 27th. Going into year 3 he will have pressure on him to win....finally after 24 games of basically meaningless football.
The last meaningful game that was played at Byrd was the Miami and West VA games last year in Sept. That is a long time ago. We ALL deserve better than what Edsall is putting together. The uniform crap is just a cover up for the bad football on the field. It looks good until you look at the win/loss column.
Can't wait to see what you say if the basketball team doesn't make the NCAA's.
So what the hell is your point? You say that Edsall would have taken this team into the post season with CJ (I'd argue that would be true with Perry) and then complain when people defend him because we lose a game with a freshman linebacker behind center.
Edsall has come a long way in a year. He got rid of coordinators who weren't getting the job done (even if he may have been greatly persuaded into making that change) and replaced them with guys who have delivered. He doesn't come off like a colossal douche like he did last year and the players in the locker room have bought into what he's doing. If the team is still 100% committed to a team with a QB who wasn't recruited to play offense, the very least you can do is stop crapping on the program every chance you get. You have less than 60 posts here and your schtick is already getting tiresome.
Addicted2Ravens makes all Edsall-haters look bad
Mark Turgeon is a much better coach than Edsall, hands down. You guys can defend Edsall and I will just sit back in amazement. You have your opinion and I have mine. They are 6-15 with Edsall as coach, and yes they had a LB playing QB most of the game today. I already said that the last 4 games will not matter because of the QB situation. Edsall gets a free pass.
Face it, you do not mind the long road to being average that Edsall has put us on. You believe the program needed a major overhaul, and you believe his 12 million dollar contract was ok. You think Edsall has turned this new leaf....Only time will tell, but right now he is 80-85 as a head coach. WE deserve better.
there are 30 bowl games, and 6 wins needed (.50% winning percentage) to make one. making a bowl game is such a high standard of success.
I agree....especially when they added the 12th game which is usually against a chump school. But this is what we are staring at. I am not sure why people have issues with just admitting that Maryland made a big mistake when they fired Ralph Fridgen. And in hindsight an even bigger mistake not following through on the James Franklin deal that was already done.
And what about the US Navy at Pearl Harbor? Those pussies should have just rubbed some dirt on it and kicked Nip ass.
yeah man...whatever you say. don't compare the military to some sporting event bro.
Good programs aren't playing their 5th string QB.
He just moved his schtick from the Scout board to here. He's on a world tour. We'd be, at worst, 6-3 with CJ Brown at QB and in a bowl game. I'm not sold on Edsall, either, but this is certainly not the season to judge him at MD. Addicted needs to move on to another subject until next Fall.
Ralph had worn out his welcome at MD and I wanted Leach. But Leach is 2-7 at WSU after losing to Utah, 49-6 yesterday. You don't win without players. At this point, Edsall deserves the chance to get his players in here because he's not going anywhere. He should be judged on next year and, most importantly, the year after that. Then, there are no excuses. Now, he has plenty of legitimate ones.
Anyone who sat in the stadium yesterday and saw the life sucked out of the stands must be stunned at what has happened to our program. At least there was no traffic leaving the parking lots ...
Randy Edsall will be fired. Eventually. And when he is, everyone is going to regret not doing it sooner.
Look, I am by no means a Randy Edsall defender, but the life was sucked out of the stands because we are on our 5th QB and basically have no chance to win another game. The life in the stands was great during the NC State game. It is what it is right now and, like it or not, it's not on Randy Edsall. Next year, I will be lined up right behind you if we're still winning 4 games.
Really, who exactly are these people that are defending him to the death? And how can the fanbase not have a "wait until next year" attitude at this point? I'm not even sure that your beloved Ralph Friedgen would win games with Shawn Petty at QB.
Come on 83. You know that I do not like Edsall and have said he is a loser since last year. No need to get nasty with me. For one, I NEVER down the kids for anything, and Two, I have been consistent with my Edsall bashing since he was hired.
No RF would not win with Petty, but the point is WE COULD HAVE BEAT BC, and we lost, WE COULD HAVE BEAT UCONN and we lost, same for NC ST. Look at the games the guy could have won with Hills or Rowe and DID NOT. We have probably played the weakest schedule through 9 games in MD history. And we are 4-5. We have played ONE!!!!!! good team in WVU.
Edsall is a total loser coach. When he is fired or run off (and this is going to come from the President) we will ALL be better off and can get back to winning football. Not year the guy will have another excuse, he is working his way to 6-6 or 7-5 in which he has dumbed us into believing is a great year.
I EXPECT MORE FROM MARYLAND
Shouldn't a program with lots of ''life'' have regular sell outs? I'd define that as a better metric, than if the team is in a close, exciting game against a favored team, where it looks like the good guys will pull off the upset.
The life has been sucked out of Maryland since last year when we realized the guy was a fraud. Nobody goes anymore and on a good day you might have 35,000-40,000 tops. Yesterday I looked up at the top deck in the second half and it was a joke. If there were 33,000 people at the game I am John Holmes.
The bottom line is we have a long way to go. Thank god for DIggs, Brown and a few others who will be around at least for 2 more years. And let's not get on the CJ Brown bandwagon either. I like CJ but as a team we won 0 games when he started last year. Do not count out Perry next year.
Nobody goes anymore, but we might have 35-40,000? Ok. Personally, I think Perry Hills has played his last game as MD's QB. Tough kid, but just does not have the arm to be an ACC-level QB. The job is open for anyone to win next year, but I don't think it will be Hills. Although we're certainly not flush with top QBs. My bigger concern next year will be the defense.
