If you’re among the many wondering how in the hell Maryland could screw things up so badly, here’s a brief reminder that evaluation hasn’t been that school’s strong suit for a while.
Just a few reminders: 1. Maryland once fired Ralph Friedgen, who went 75-50 in College Park. 2. Maryland then let James Franklin walk before allowing him to officially take over as head coach. 3. Maryland then could have hired Mike Leach. They hired Randy Edsall.
“We have a long way to go to get to where we need to go,” Smart said. “That’s nothing to do with Oregon. That’s nothing to do with anybody we play. That’s to do with the Georgia Bulldogs...”-- Kirby Smart, AJ-C, 8/14/22
