Morning links: Yahoo grades Maryland hiring of Randy Edsall
Matt Hinton of Yahoo's Dr. Saturday blog, in a post headlined "Meet the New Boss: Grading the Retread Coaching Hires," gives Maryland a B for hiring Randy Edsall. Writes Hinton, echoing much that has been written already about Edsall:
"Edsall's not exciting; fans aren't going to start flocking in droves for 8-4 runs to the Champs Sports Bowl. But if he gives Maryland the decade Friedgen did – that is, six eight-win seasons, seven bowl games and rare conference championship – this is a good hire."
On to North Carolina State, Sunday's opponent for the Terrapins. Freshmen Ryan Harrow, Lorenzo Brown and C.J. Leslie all started for just the second time this season in Sunday's big win over Wake Forest, and they'll start again tonight against Clemson, reports the Raleigh News & Observer.
In ACC basketball action last night, Virginia had "just one of those nights" in a 56-41 home loss to Duke. Lots of "those nights" for the Cavs this season.
