What would A World Without Lawyers be like?
Maryland has not been a major player in college football since the 1950s. I would love to see them as an annual top 25 team, but I don't think that will ever be the case. We can only hope for some bowl games and an occasional BCS game once every 20 years. I mean, for all that Freidgen gets credit for, we only went to 1 BCS bowl game and got our ass kicked.
As far as basketball goes, MD has always had a solid program, but save for the 2002 season and they've been a step below Duke and UNC. One thing you can say, we are one of three teams in the ACC to have won a National Championship within the last 30 years. I think NC State in 1983 was the last team besides MD, UNC and Duke to win it all. I think Turgeon will get the program going, but I'm not sure we can be on the same level as Duke and UNC.
Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
The Terps got a lot worse this year mostly because of the coaching changes. They weren't as good as their record showed last year due to some lucky scheduling breaks and some great turnover luck on defense, but overall, they were a much better team (and program) then they've been since the coaching overhaul.
O'Brien got worse because of Gary Crowton. The defense got MUCH worse without Don Brown (who was considered an excellent DC by other offensive coaches in the ACC, I know FSU's coaches were glad that he left Maryland).
I don't think that Maryland was going to be some sort of top 10 team this year, but they were setting up to be a lot better than what they've become under Edsall.
You can only hope for so much, realistically, out of the football program. The Fridge wasn't going to deliver a BCS championship (and probably not an ACC title very often), but he kept the program at a decent level for what it is.
It's the basketball program that Maryland fans and alumni should demand a lot out of. That's where resources have been shamefully wasted.
Its between UNC and MD.
Nate Britt will announce his college decision on November 29th, per his father. Big news.

For Maryland to be successful, Edsall needs to reinvent himself
With the expected departure of several of the most talented players from this year’s team – including defensive end David Mackall, tailback D.J. Adams and possibly quarterback Danny O’Brien – and the prospect of a mediocre (if that) recruiting class, the Terps are going to be ACC bottom-feeders again next season and probably for a while.
Edsall has talked about how what he did at Connecticut will help him in College Park. Edsall continued the building process in Storrs begun by Skip Holtz; at Maryland he now has to rebuild a program that he tore apart in less than one season.
More importantly, Edsall should also bring in a group of the team’s veterans, perhaps even a few of the players with whom he had problems, and ask them for input on how to change the us-against-him mentality that has pervaded the Gossett Team House, or Gossett Team Penitentiary, as some players refer to it on Twitter. In your my-way-or-the-highway world, the highway appears to be approaching gridlock.

He said there is gonna be a team meeting Sunday Night and basically said he will tell them they are going to win with or without them. Probably referring to Adams, O'Brien, and Mackell among others.
not sure how they'll find a way to lose this game. But this Uni combo might be the best after the pride ones. A black shellmet would make it awesome.
Give up 40 plus points AND be losing by 20 in the second half? Have no fear if you are playing Randy Edfail's Terps.
It defies logic how this happens.
Fitting end to the season
everything negative and awful that's coming to Edsall and Anderson are well deserved. Talk about ****ting the bed.
Too bad that program is broke because he should be fired before even flying back from NCST. Maybe Plank can pay for it.
There are two teams worse than the Redskins. One is the Indianapolis Colts. You can guess what the other team is.
