Terps RB will transfer to James Madison


Nearly two weeks after it was announced that Maryland running back Jeremiah Wilson would be transferring from the program, we now know to where the freshman will be going.

According to Mike Barber of the Daily News-Record, Wilson will be moving down a level to James Madison. The move means Wilson will be able to play right away in 2012. Wilson is a Winchester, VA, native, and JMU is located only about an hour’s drive.

As a freshman, Wilson had just five carries for 16 yards. He is one of three running backs — the others being Rahsaan Moore and D.J. Adams — to leave the program this year.

    Will there be enough players to field a team there next year. Is Edsel really that bad of a coach, or so out of touch with his players. And to think, that thought old Ralph was taking the university down.
    I think there are still a couple of asst. coaches out there in NCAA land that they can hire if they act quick.

    The problem the Terps have is a six year guarantee to Edsall at $2MM per year. No way they can afford to can him and hire anyone worth a hoot.

    This ship is going down for the forseeable future. No reason to Fear the Turtle now. They might consider going back to the old uniforms.

    Just have the boys in Annapolis raise a special tax fund to pay him off. What’s one more tax anyway? I was born in Maryland and lived there until I left for the service, way back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. I had enough, when I was paying taxes to Maryland, while I was in Viet Nam, and hadn’t been in the state in for 3 years. Most states did the same as the U.S. Govt. did, and exempted what little pay you got, while you were in combat, but not Maryland. It was my home of record and after that, when I got home, even though I was stationed in Wash. D.C., I became a resident wherever I was stationed.

    Maybe it’s time for Kevin Plank to write the damn check and get this mess over with.

    I have no idea if Edsall will succeed at UMD, but I could give two ****s about little kids transfering because they are expected to dress appropriately. To Wilson and the others leaving because they want to wear their bling, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.


    Nothing has changed in MD unfortunately. The newest way to fleece MD residences is the Inter County Connector (ICC). Its a fabulous 14 mile “super highway” that connects 270 with I-95 and costs $4.00 one way during rush hour. Thats $40 a week to avoid the DC beltway.

    My father lived about just his whole life in Annapolis. I remember him saying that one day, Annapolis and most of the state of Maryland, would be part of the Washington-Baltimore connection and you would hardly know when you left Annapolis, and arrived at Washington. It turns out he was right.
    I took his ashes up to Maryland five years ago when he died to sprinkle them on his mothers and and second wife’s graves. It was the first time since 1995 that I had been to Md. and I made up my mind it would be the last time. I have lived down south for so long, the pace of life there would put me down, LOL. I avoid congestion of big cities like the plague. I don’t even go to Atlanta and it is 70 miles away from me. If I need something not available locally, I will order it from the internet, rather than go down to that 8 lanes of insanity they call a city.

    I’ve lived in Annapolis all my life. And although I would love to raise my kids in Annapolis the next opportunity I can get to move to North Carolina I will jump on it no matter what my Wife says. I love it down there so I completely understand where you are coming from.

    N.C. is a beautiful state. Not too cold east of the mountains, and employment isn’t awfully bad I don’t think. I am retired and live in Georgia. I came south in 1981 to Alabama, but decided to live when I got a chance, in Georgia. It is an OK state, tax wise, but employment is pretty dead here, unless you live in Atlanta. The winters are pretty mild, and that was the selling point for me. I still think Annapolis is a pretty town, but it has grown up too much for me. When I lived there, it had a population of about 35,000, so that should give you an idea how long it has been for me. Good luck on N.C. Don’t think you can go wrong.
