Is it a done deal? ESPN is simply reporting he is "likely to take the PSU job".

 

That said, if he does a great job, after X number of years, he'll get the call from some NFL team.

Probably not. But he should be on a short leash. He did make it to a bowl game. If he can get them to a bowl game in his first year in the B1G, that's a significant milestone, IMO.

 

Pedo State still has 2 more years on post-season bowls, so Md has 2 more years before PSU and Franklin ramp it up. May be tough convincing recruits to go to a place with 2 more years of the ban.

sorry, but that bowl game was a joke, they had 2 decent wins this season, against a wva and vt teams that were in down years .......

No disagreement about the bowl game...it was lame. But as lame as it was, it still represents a milestone. There were 21 (I believe) FBS bowl games, so far less than half of the 125 FBS teams got an invite. Always better to go to a bowl, than not. Only 6 teams in the big ten got an invite.

 

If the goal isn't to get to a BCS bowl, then I would be disappointed. But as a first step, get to a bowl. The next step should be, win that bowl game.

Penn State has scheduled a press conference tomorrow where it plans to announce James Franklin as the new HC.

 

Considering the success Vandy has had the last 3 years, perhaps it'll take Edsall off our hands.

Maryland should offer a position to Larry Johnson, the Penn State defensive line coach line coach who Is regarded as one of the best recruiters in college football. He's from southern Maryland and is angry that he wasn't seriously considered for the Penn State HC position.

Maybe time for UMD to consider hiring a minority as a head coach again.

Who cares what race the coach is.  We need a recruiter and a winner.  Not a diversity achievement.

You don't see a correlation with recruiting, when you are trying to keep in states recruits that are minorities? UMD has

never had problem recruiting LAX, Soccer and Field hockey in state talent. I'm not saying sell your self short,It's worth an attempt I say to compete with the PSU, WVU and VA techs of the world.

Per 247 sports, the Terps have received commitments from only 2 of the top 30 HS players in Maryland. That's a pretty sad state of affairs. I read somewhere on the Internet that several current Terp players have dissuaded potential recruits from playing under Edsall. Not sure I believe that.

 

But one thing's for sure, Maryland has opened the door wide open for B!G schools to pick apart Maryland. Why go to Maryland if you can go to Penn State, Michigan or Wisconsin?

Yet somehow little programs like Florida State, Duke, Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan State, Oregon, & Missouri all did it with non minority head coaches.

 

What minority were you thinking?  Asian? Native American?

Penny ante terrapin club members...when are you finally going to understand you are small time and the ath. Dept and admin don't listen to you? Under Armor...now they move the needle.

 

Going to stroll down to Duke and hop on their hoops bandwagon? Wouldn't be any more ridiculous than becoming a penn st football fan.
