Wait. Hold up. Help me understand what just happened in College Park.
Maryland's stated desire to take the next step in college football, to gracelessly move reliable Ralph Friedgen and the past aside for a shake-and-bake exotic candidate - someone more vibrant, younger, (go ahead, say it) trimmer, a guy who would simultaneously woo five-star recruits and fill empty luxury suites - has now culminated in the hiring of a decent Big East coach whose record is a shade over .500 in 12 seasons?
From a school where basketball will always be king?
Randy Edsall, whose Connecticut kids were waxed in their bowl game by Oklahoma on New Year's night - that's Maryland's new man?
