Football Program in DEEEEP Trouble

11/5/2011 1:32:03 PM I know we have moved on from football for the most part, but my goodness.

I know we have issues and I blame Edsall for most of it, but the end of the game was enough for me to lose any confidence I had in Edsall turning this program around (after he turned it the other way!)

3 minutes left... down by 3 scores.  Sure, a comeback would take a miracle, but you had 4th and 10 at the 20 with 2 timeouts.  Kick a field goal to make it a 2 score game then try the onside kick/use your timeouts to at least give your team a chance (and practice the on-side kick and/or 2 minute drill). 

Edsall of course goes for it on 4th and 10 and gives it up.  So you still have 2 timeouts.  You stop them on consecutive downs, yet don't use the timeouts and let the clock wind down.

Edsall GAVE UP with 3 minutes to go.  GAVE UP!!  You can't win over a group of kids by doing that.  At least show some faith in your team.  And he gave up against Virginia.  The team he said on 3/5/11: "Here at Maryland, we don't lose to Virginia."  But it's okay to give up.  Nice leadership.

But of course, I'm sure it's the fans fault for not packing the place to watch that crap, or Fridge's fault, or injuries fault, or Canada's fault... It sure isn't your fault though buddy.

Keep sticking to that plan.
