Kevin Anderson: "In 2007, I believe, Randy Edsall had the highest graduation rate amongst African Americans from state schools that played in a bowl game. That's a tremendous feat ladies and gentlemen"

Don't forget, he went to Lefty's basketball camp too, so all the alumni can get on board.

Well, it's official. We will be playing in the ACC championship game next year. KA said that's what the players want. So we have that going for us... which is nice.

Hard to believe this is really his dream job. It just doesn't ring true to me.

But, let's face it. Randy Edsall is our coach and we are just going to have to wait and see what happens. I don't think a Pitt situation is going to happen here.

'In 2007...I believe...Randy Edsall had the highest graduation rate...amongst African Americans...from state schools...that played in a bowl game...That's a tremendous feat ladies and gentlemen' -Kevin Anderson

This achievement ought to be on the cover of every U-MD football advertisement for the next 10 years. It should be the cornerstone of our recruiting pitch. It should be at the top of the locker room when the kids walk out to face their opponents. And it should be repeated ad nauseum until every football fan in the state of Maryland hears it.

Good to Great....here we come!

Barno, I like your enthusiasm. I really do. But not all of the time. We get you hated KA's decision. I didn't like it one iota either. The way they treated Ralph is a disgrace, but what is done, is done. I will not let that ruin all the great memories we've had with Ralph. What he did for this program truly deserves some sort of long-lasting recognition. Whether it be a statue, re-naming of some football facility in his honor...something should be done.

But now it's a new coach, a new opportunity for the kids, the coaches and us fans. It's time to get behind them and support them for the 2011 season. You are usually one who sees the glass half full here, so that shouldn't be too hard for you.

At the very least KA didn't totally screw the pooch here. Edsall > Leach in the long run.

jmolina77, I will be rooting for the Terps to succeed...but I will also be calling it as I see it. And with respect to Kevin Anderson, he is a bumbling joke of a joke. If anyone ever doubted me as to how he got this job, I hope they now understand how we ended up with Anderson.
