Good read by Wise:

I think the biggest concern as a fan is the work of the AD. I never liked the way Fridgen was let out as a coach. And there is words that Miller was interested in the job, but was put off by Anderson. I'm sure all will be forgiven if Edsall and Turgeon work out, but I just don't have a good feeling about this guy.

In the end, I don't think Maryland is Duke or any other current basketball powerhouse. I do believe that Maryland Basketball need to stop riding past success and create their own future success by doing well in conference play and making it to the tournament on their own. I am excited about this new coach and look forward to what he can bring to this team.

I think Anderson may have screwed up with this BBall coaching search, but I like the Randy Edsall hire. A lot. That said, basketball always has and probably always will reign supreme in the eyes of fans/students/alums in College Park.

Re: Terps Basketball Coach Gary Williams Stepping Down

The Edsall hire is a swing for the fences hire. If he works out it looks genius...otherwise it looks terribly dopey. But it doesn't look ho-hum. The Turgeon hire looks incredibly panicy and like they settled. They'd have been better off taking another few days to find someone who hasn't been just "above average" like Turgeon has been. He hasn't beaten the best teams consistently and doesn't have a crazy-good reputation for recruiting or getting far in the tourney. If they aspire to compete with the Dukes and Carolinas then they needed another swing for the fences hire. Not a "we're happy to win 23-25 games year and bow out by round 2 in the tourney" type hire. The hire looks pretty damn average.

Re: Terps Basketball Coach Gary Williams Stepping Down

Why didn't we get Shaka? We could have Shaked the world with that hire.
