Friedgen's expectations

I asked Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen about realistic expectations for this program on a yearly basis. I have been curious about this because it's unclear where Maryland's place is in the college football hierarchy. Maryland is clearly not Florida or Southern California, but it isn't Washington State, either.

Friedgen said this week that he maintains the same goals for this program that he had upon his arrival: consistent top 25 finishes.

“I want to do that, and I want to do that every year on a consistent basis,” Friedgen said. “I won one national championship [in 1990 as a Georgia Tech assistant], and I think if you can do it on a consistent basis, every now and then all the stars will line up in the same direction, you’ve got a chance if things fall right for you. We have a ways to go, but that is what we are striving to do.”

Is that realistic?

I'm surprised this question is being asked now, since the Terps are approaching the bottom 10.

If Boise State can be a BCS contender, no reason Maryland should limit its expectations. I hope we cut ties with both Friedgen and Franklin at year's end. Bobby Ross and Jerry Claiborne both have proven that you can field a winner in College Park.
