I was at the game today. That was a whole new level of suck.

Edsall looks like he's just happy to be on the sidelines...I just dont see the fire. I dont think he will last more than 2 years.
Maryland Basketball Recruiting Roundup: Georgia Big Man Robert Carter Visiting
And the first bit of big news comes from ESPN's Reggie Rankin, who was in Chicago for the Under Armour Grind Session, basically just a Skills Academy-type deal. Rankin talked to the impressive Robert Carter, who informed him that he'll be taking visits to five schools ... including Maryland.
PF Robert Carter (Thomasville, Ga./Shiloh) has terrific skill and the ability to score inside and out with 3-point range in addition to being able to handle and pass. Carter is visiting Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Florida and Florida State.
Carter, a high four-star/low five-star from Georgia, is a great all-around 4 with a developed game both inside and outside. In other words, he's a very good complement to Shaquille Cleare. Mitch McGary will remain the biggest big man priority in the class, but Carter is a close second. Getting a visit - and an apparent top five status - is a big deal for Maryland, and it means they should have a fighting shot
We should bag MD football and just turn our hopes to Turgeon recruiting!

D.C. Assault AAU Program Reportedly Moving to Under Armour Stable
Great news here. Shoe companies have always had and will always have a strange influence in basketball recruiting (see: Archie Goodwin cutting Adidas-sponsored Baylor, or speculation that Terrence Ross' Nike connection contributed to his decommitment). Getting elite D.C.-based recruits in and around Maryland's brand early and often can only be a good thing.
DCA ain't what it once was, but this should solidify Maryland's increasingly cozy reputation with them. Remember that Gary and DCA were always at odds; within months, Turgeon appears to have become buddy-buddy with them. Take that for what you will. If it helps with the Nate Britts and Romelo Trimbles of the world, I'm cool.
I know most of you don't care but I'm posting this anyway.
Lady Terps recruiting news.
Howard set to visit Maryland
The courtship of Malina Howard of Twinsburg, Ohio, now is down to Notre Dame and Maryland. Two weeks ago, Notre Dame played host to the prospect ranked No. 7 in 2012 by ESPN HoopGurlz. Now it's Maryland's turn, and it has an equally big weekend planned as the Terps are hosting their current Class of 2012 commitments, including four-star guard Chloe Pavlech and No. 22 Tierney Pfirman.
Brenda Frese and her staff also will welcome a couple of Top 20 Class of 2013 players to College Park this weekend, including No. 17 Alexis "Lexie" Brown and No. 3 Diamond DeShields.
Brown pledged to the ACC program last June while DeShields still is on the fence. Pavlech and Howard played on the same Sports City summer team while Brown has a previous relationship with Howard after previous trips to Maryland for unofficial visits. Throw in the unofficial visit from the uber-athletic DeShields and this has the potential to be a major weekend for Maryland.

DeShields is the daughter of Delino, right?
Ralph Friedgen Does Not Care For Your Maryland Pride, or His Alma Mater Anymore
I don't listen to WNST, not because I have anything against them; I just don't live in Baltimore. (I've never heard it; I have no idea if it's worthy of listening to, even.) I say that to establish that I don't know the context of this quote, what question was asked, or anything else. But I'm having a tough time of thinking of a situation in which it doesn't come across as ... unfortunate.

Out of curiosity, has anyone noticed that Edsall has been taking veiled shots at Ralph for a few weeks now?
