Randy Edsall: He’s reportedly left Connecticut to coach Maryland. Is it a lateral move? The Big East and ACC are equally awful. It’s definitely more difficult to win the ACC (Florida State, Virginia Tech), and I’d venture to say it’s a slightly more respected conference. Edsall made some outstanding lemonade out of a nothing program in Storrs, so he should be able to work magic in College Park with a young Maryland team coming off a 9-4 season. All that Mike Leach talk you heard in the last 72 hours? Probably just smoke. He’s still too toxic. [WP]
Hurt his groin. Returned.
The poor umpire nearly fell too.
Sad tale of Branch’s dogs also involves potential political pressure.
Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
