Topics discussed include:

  • Randy Edsall OUT as Maryland football head coach, Mike Locksley named the interim head coach
  • Did you really believe it when the Jeff Ermann dropped the news that Edsall would be fired following the Ohio State game?
  • Thoughts on how Kevin Anderson handled the situation, from the news leak to the press conference
  • The Terps go out and play hard against Ohio State before the Buckeyes pulled away half way through the first quarter
  • Had to be excited after that first score, at least a little bit, right?
  • The guys agree that even if the Terps had beaten Ohio State that Maryland would have fired Edsall anyway
  • You could tell by the play calling that Randy knew this was it
  • Perry Hills rushing the ball is what kept Maryland in the game, he’s probably going to be the starter going forward
  • The wide receivers have been garbage
  • Matt, again, wants Brad Craddock to punt
  • The guys speak highly about Hills’ performance, but that doesn’t mean they’re high on Hills
  • Most of Locksley’s more successful offenses have come with mobile quarterbacks, so expect to see more of Perry Hills using his legs
  • Randy storms out of the press conference after a dumb first question. Weird way to see him go out
  • What’s the outlook for the rest of the season? Does anything really change?
  • What’s Locksley’s status if he starts winning games? Should Maryland’s next head coach try and retain him in some capacity?
  • How would you recruit high schoolers to Maryland? CT would go the Louisville-hooker route
  • Saying goodbye to Randy Edsall. What were the high points of his tenure? They’re limited
  • How will the openings at Southern California and South Carolina affect Maryland’s coaching search?
  • Early head coaching candidates? Season is going to have to play out for any progress to be made on this front. Hooray weeks of baseless speculation!
  • CT thinks that Greg Schiano hires people to throw his name into coaching searches. Nobody wants him, yet his name always comes up
  • Penn State kick off set for 3:30
  • The guys debate whether it was Kenny Tate or Adrian Moten who made the 4th-and-goal tackle on Navy’s Ricky Dobbs back in the 2010 opener
