COLLEGE PARK, Md. –
The University of Maryland announced today that head football coach Randy Edsall has signed a three-year contract extension. Terms of the contract extension were not disclosed.
Edsall led Maryland into a new era in 2014, with its first season in the Big Ten. Maryland finished the regular season with a 5-1 record away from College Park, leading the Big Ten in road wins. The five road victories were the most for a Terrapin team since 1984. Maryland posted its first-ever road victory at Penn State and its first-ever win against Michigan to punctuate its first season in the conference, which concluded with an appearance in the Foster Farms Bowl. Maryland finished the season 7-6 securing its first back-to-back winning seasons since 2002-03 as well consecutive bowl game appearances.I think Randy is a mediocre coach but he's done some things on the recruiting trail. He deserves a chance to see if he can develop these recruits over the next three seasons.
Securing the commitment of Haskins is crucial to Edsall's DMV strategy. He's a 4-star QB who is announcing his intentions at 3pm ET today. Rutgers and Penn State are in the mix as well. [...] Read More »
Hot off the presses. Sulaimon is a Terp. My mind is reeling that Duke Blue Devil is now a Terp. I'm not sure how to feel. On one hand, the Terps have a completely loaded roster and could be ranked as high as preseason #1. On the other hand, he was kicked off Duke's team for a reason and I'm not sure we need to a potential problem to a tea [...] Read More »
It's the news that Terp fans have been waiting for. Diamond Stone, the 6'10" 250lb 5-star center tweeted to the world this evening that he was taking his talents to College Park MD next year. Unbelievable! I need verification, but this may be the first time in program history that Maryland has netted McDonald's All-Americans in back-to-back sea [...] Read More »
The Maryland Terrapins haven't been to the Sweet 16 since 2003. Exalted names like Drew Nicholas and Steve Blake were involved. Today, the Terps can end the drought and reestablish the program on the national stage. In the way, stands West Virginia. The Mountaineers have slogged through the Big 12 conference which has been tabbed the best confe [...] Read More »
Man, that Valpo game was incredibly frustrating to watch. I'm not going to lie. I avoided public places because I knew this game would be close and I didn't want to have a conniption fit in public. As it was, I destroyed a water bottle and may or may not have beaten a pillow on my couch to a bloody pulp. Yes. I'm a grown man. It's shameful. M [...] Read More »
Happy NCAA Tournament, everyone! It's good to be back after a 4 year hiatus. By now, we've all had the opportunity to get over the fact that the Selection Committee completely screwed Maryland with our seeding and draw. It's water under the bridge. I've come to peace with it. I actually think a potential matchup against Kentucky presents a [...] Read More »
I don't even know where to start. The Terps got served one of the most unfair seeding in recent history. A team with a 2-0 record against the Big 12, including a win against the conference champion, got seeded behind three Big 12 teams. If only that were the only insult. The Terps got shipped in Kentucky's side of the draw too. A top 10 tea [...] Read More »
It was a great night at the United Center. The Terps didn't trail after the score was 13-10 Indiana early in the first half. In what has become this team's signature, the Terps kept Indiana at arms length but were never able to pull away until the final minute. Ken Pomeroy and the other basketball quants call this Terps team the luckiest in A [...] Read More »
For the first time since I was a junior in college, I will get to see the Maryland Terrapins play in their conference tournament. The Terps check in as a #2 seed but I expect the matchup to be much more difficult than the standard 2/7 fare. Unfortunately, Maryland does not matchup well with Indiana. IU's guards are quicker than Maryland's and [...] Read More »
