Who Wants Friedgen Gone Now?

After the Terrapins suffered the worst defeat of Ralph Friedgen’s tenure at MTSU, many critics angrily shouted for Friedgen to be fired. Former Terp LaMont Jordan made a call for a change.

We’re still in September, and we have quite a different forecast for the season now. Maryland has beaten two nationally ranked teams and has shown it has as good a chance as any ACC team to win the conference title.

I am not giving an opinion one way or another on this, but this is college football, and fortunes change and they change quickly.

I have a few questions: Were those who called for Ralph’s job on Sept. 6 wrong?

And I would like one fan, just one, who had called for his head to emerge and admit they now have a change of heart. Who wants to step forward? Anyone?

good for you, Eric. if they're still wingeing at the end of the year, maybe they'll talk up the Tennessee coach. he may be available, of course that's the same Tennessee coach Ralph whumped in a bowl not THAT long ago.

Ralph's not going anywhere. Even though the last few seasons (before this one) have not lived up to his first three years here, look at the 15 years before he arrived on campus. This used to be a team where the coaches, players and fans set their goals for 6 wins and a lousy bowl bid (and they couldn't even achieve that). Now everybody wants to win 10 games per year and contend for the league title. Ralph changed the culture around this program and has been a consistent winner. He can stay as long as he wants.

Still a long ways to go. Ask the same question if they lose at UVA. Another question: is Bowden going to survive at Clemson?

I've called for Raplh's head and may still do it. You rip Clemson for being inconsistent, yet MD is just as inconsistent as Clemson

EP there is still long way to go this season? Last year the injuries were a valid excuse for a bad stretch but this year the Terps should be poised to win 7-8 games NO LESS. We are still talking about a coach that has losing seasons 3 out of the last 4. Also a team that has shown a lot of potential. FREDTERP

If Ralph puts in Steffy again I want him gone.

it may have been too early to call for Fridge's head. so I've learned a lesson. and that lesson tells me it's too early to make a reprieve on that thought. i'll make the evaluation when the season is over. and hopefully i'll want Fridge to stay...

We still have 7 games to might want to check how we finished the 3 losing seasons before declaring that Ralph's arrived again. I think it's abdundantly clear by now that Ralph screwed up the QB decision and the question is still out on Cosh. Anyone can look redeemed after laying an egg. Gameplan better and then you don't have to make an adjustment that saves the day. The team is showing toughness which is's hardly clicking on all cylinders yet.
