Like flies, three more Maryland players leave program

Maryland Logo

Wow.

Roster attrition isn’t unusual for a first-year coach, but Maryland coach Randy Edsall is having to deal with plenty of it.

At the very least, the transfer news is coming in bunches.

According to a school release, running backs Rahsaan Moore and Jeremiah Wilson, as well as defensive back Titus Till, have left the program to pursue other playing opportunities.

“We appreciate the effort of all three of these young men and wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors,” Edsall said.

The latest departures come one day after offensive lineman R.J. Dill decided to transfer, and five days after running back D.J. Adams announced his intentions to move on.

    Man, you talk about emptying out a backfield. The timing is really bad also, since a lot of recruits have already committed for 2012. I bet the AD there, wishes he had kept old Ralph now doesn’t he? Is the problem with the coach in particular or the offensive game planning or the OC? Does anybody know one way or another?
    I don’t really have a bone in the fight because although I was born in Annapolis Maryland, back about the time the dinosaurs roamed, I have been firmly entrenched in the south for many many years, but MD. does hold a little sentimental part of my heart at times, at least as far as football goes.

    Wow! I thought “one and done” only referred to hoops. Good-bye Randy!

    ” Is the problem with the coach in particular or the offensive game planning or the OC? ”

    My understanding is that the problem is Edsall, who is a hardass.

    They’re not running away from Edsall; they’re running away from those ugly ass uniforms.

    You got a point there Gator. They have got to be some of the ugliest uniforms, along, with Oregon, that have ever been allowed on a footballs field. Maybe the athletic dept. folks, if they looked more like Oregon, they might play more like them. Obviously, that didn’t translate to well did it?

    Indeed the problem is Edsell. He runs a boot camp. He is a very strict coach and these players can’t handle it. However, that is why he was brought in. Ralph was kicked out because the program was dirt close to being nailed with the dreaded “atmosphere of non compliance ” or whatever the ncaa calls it. The school said it was for not getting attendance at games, but that was just the public spin. Ralph had no control over his players. So they brought in Randy to get things in order. Give him three years, Maryland will not only be back in a bowl, but will have a crystal clear record with the ncaa

    The Terps blew it by not hiring Leach. He was a perfect fit with his ties to Under Armour and the direction the program wanted to take on the national stage. Edsall has no personality. The Terps draw from a major market and a medium market and Randy is too small. The Terps will not go anywhere with him at the helm.

    Jrocknstuff,

    Spot on. Maryland lost scholarships under Ralphie for not even meeting the minimum APR score. Edsell must run a tight ship to turn things around. Those that leave early will just allow the ship to turn quicker.
