Alex Kirshner from Testudo Times was kind enough to answer some questions about the ‘Eers and Terps. Let’s get started, shall we?
Matt: I’ve been a long term believer in the ineptitude of Randy Edsall as a head coach that can get you anywhere in a legitimate conference. However, I’ll give him props in that he has dug Maryland out of the hole that he got them into early in his tenure at UMD. Do you think that Edsall is the kind of guy that can lead Maryland to real Big Ten title contention?
Alex: Getting to a Big Ten championship game will be enormously hard no matter who’s coaching. No matter how good a job Edsall does, it will be some time before Maryland’s ever the favorite to beat out Ohio State or Michigan State for a spot in that game. With that in mind, I do think Edsall’s a big-time college football coach. Not everyone likes him, as evidenced by the avalanche of transfers Maryland absorbed at the beginning of his tenure. He clearly has a vision for the program, and while James Franklin and Penn State could be a big recruiting problem, there’s not much doubt Edsall has the Terps moving in the right direction.
