Team: Maryland Terrapins B1G East
Head Coach: Randy Edsall 4th Year
Last Yearâ€™s Record: 7-6
Key Assistant: DC Brian Stewart
Trending: Upward. I donâ€™t like Randy Edsall as a head coach, I love the guy. He is a brilliant Xâ€™s and Oâ€™s tactician in a school that is NOT a football centric place. He frankly needs a better job by his assistants this year and with improved talent under his leadership that is possible.
Unlike Rutgers that had NO business coming into the B1G, you could at least make a case for the Terps. A strong hoops powerhouse and a solid fan base, if they can change into a consistent bowl eligible team I think they could build a good program, but averaging an attendance in the 40K range is not a way to do it when trying to show off the game day experience for recruits.
James Madison: Win
At USF: Win
West Virginia: Win
At Syracuse: Win
At Indiana: Win
Ohio State: Loss
At Wisconsin: Loss
At Penn State: Loss
Michigan State: Loss
At Michigan: Loss
Final thoughts: Edsall is a B1G worthy coach. I think if he has things moving in the right direction. Six wins in 2014 would be going back from last yearâ€™s seven wins, but with a significant jump in competition it would still be an indicator of an upward move.
