Open Letter To Randy Edsall

Dear Coach Edsall:

As an alumnus and lifelong fan of the University of Maryland Athletics program; I implore you to do the right thing and resign effective immediately. 

Today's collapse against NC State represents a new low for program. It's also the fourth or fifth "new low" the program has witnessed since your arrival.  Your tenure has been one unmitigated disaster after another and it's really time for us to part ways.

Unfortunately, our AD is a moron and gave you a guaranteed $10 Million contract that runs through 2015 and the University is in no position to buy you out.  This unfortunate reality doesn't change the following immutable facts:

1.  The fans, students, and alumni openly hate you

2.  The players live in fear of you and as result, their hatred of you is more muted, but no less real than the aforementioned fans, students, and alumni

3.  Your failures this season are record setting. You've benched the reigning ACC freshman of the year, suspended countless players for minor violations, all while turning a 9 win team into a 2 win team.

4.  You've never taken any responsibility regarding the Terps misfortunes.  Instead, you've chosen to blame the players..

5.  The incoming recruiting class is going to be the worst one the Terps have had in years

6.  Today's blown 27 point lead will forever live in infamy.  Fans like myself will have to wear that score around our neck like an albatross for the rest of our lives.

For all these reasons, please do the right thing and offer to resign.  It's best that we all start fresh.  I'm sure that there is a Linebackers coaching position in the NFL with your name on it.

Anyone know Mike Leach's phone number?

Maryland v Florida Gulf Coast Thread

Florida Gulf Coast comes to College Park as a warm-up opponent. With big games against Illinois and Notre Dame on the horizon, Coach Turgeon is likely looking at tonight's contest as a means to gauge the team's progress. As San Juan painfully demonstrated, the Terps are far from being a dependable team on either end of the floor.  They are [...] Read More »

Terps v Iona Thread

The Terps face Iona in a decisive tilt that will determine if Puerto Rico was kind to Maryland.  The Terps do not do well in early season Tournaments.  In the waning years of Gary Williams tenure; the Terps routinely lost 2 of the 3 games.  In the dawn of the Turgeon era, a vs Iona is all that stands in the way of a 2-1 trip. It w [...] Read More »

Stoglin Leads Terps To Victory Over Buffs

In what was easily his finest performance as a Terp; Terrell Stoglin willed the Terps to victory this evening over the University of Colorado.  Despite being saddled with four fouls early in the second half; Stoglin closed out the Buffs with a lethal combination of threes and deft drives to the hoop. Mosley kept the Terps in it early on wit [...] Read More »

Terps-Colorado Thread

Could it really be any worse than yesterday?  Could we shoot that bad again?  I doubt it.  I am hoping it was the excitement of the game in an empty gym in Puerto Rico that caused our Terps to look like a group of pick-up players that never played together before. Today is a day to forget about what happened against Alabama [...] Read More »

Two Made Jump Shots

Wow.  That was some shooting display.  Outside of Sean Mosley's desperation three at the end of the half and Nick Faust's fadeaway in garbage time; the Terps only hit layups.  That's not to say that they hit many of them. The Terps shot 26% from the field and 56% from the charity stripe. No Terp scored in double figures. I realiz [...] Read More »

Puerto Rico Tip - Off Thread - Game 1

Our Terps get a big test tonight.  It's the middle of the work day for me so I have zero time to put up any pregame analysis.  I know that they will be ready to go.  I'm interested to see how Turgeon has prepared them. I'll be watching on tape delay.  Go Terps! [...] Read More »

Turgeon Era Begins With A Win

The Terps held off a pesky UNC Wilmington squad tonight.  The final tally shows a 9 point win for the Terps but the reality is that the outcome was never in doubt.  After halftime, the Terps took control and pushed the lead to double digits. Unfortunately, they weren't able to extend the lead to 20+ points like we are used to seeing.& [...] Read More »

Maryland Tips Off Against UNCW

I've been away all day, so I apologize for getting the thread up late.  Two quick thoughts: 1. Drew Nicholas ain't walking through the door, so the Terps better come to play. 2. Apparently, Terrell Stoglin is not starting.  It's clear Turgeon is going to value the basketball this year at all costs. [...] Read More »

Maryland - Notre Dame Thread

For Maryland fans, today's game should have been the most anticipated of the season.  A chance to knock off the most storied program in college football history.  Instead, Maryland has limped into this game in such a sorry state, that it's hard to imagine anything but a blowout. Maybe the Terps will surprise us, but it seems pretty obv [...] Read More »
