Should Maryland Have Made Announcement Sooner?
While Maryland appointed James Franklin as Ralph Friedgen's eventual successor in order to provide continuity in recruiting, I and others are left to wonder about the timing of the announcement. Speculation has swirled since the season ended that this might be coming. (Though other rumors had Friedgen retiring now and Franklin taking over, so maybe that shows it's best to never pay much attention to rumors.) But if Maryland has known it was going this route for some time, why wait until two days after most recruits sign their letters-of-intent to make the announcement? Unless you are worried that the announcement will disrupt your recruiting plans. Now, recruits have no choice but to accept this is the way things will be, instead of being allowed to evaluate Maryland's plans on their own.
