    Re: Game @ UCONN may have just got easier next year

    Regardless of our game next year, this just doesn't seem right. Edsal is the UConn program, and isn't walking into a better situation at Maryland than he had at UConn. He doesn't seem to be the type of coach that would "fill the seats" as opposed to the Fridge.

    I think its a dumb move. UCONN football is way more relevant than Maryland football. Oh well, here is too hoping they don't hire Mike Leach.

    I think you underestimate how crappy the Big East is. Their TV revenues are miniscule compared to other BCS conferences, and the facilities comparison is not even close. Maryland is definitely a step up from UConn.

    Re: Game @ UCONN may have just got easier next year

    I think the main upside with the Maryland job is that Kevin Plank, the founder of Under Armour and Maryland alum, is ready to start pumping money in the program like Phil Knight does with Oregon. If that's the case, I think Maryland is easily the better job. The ACC is almost as easy to win in as the Big East.

    being one and done with UCONN I hope they do go outside the program for someone like Leach. Staying in house is better for them next year but not necessarily long term.

    The Big East's bowl records from the last 5 years show they are anything but a weak football conference.

    Re: Game @ UCONN may have just got easier next year

    Coach Randy Edsall of Connecticut Huskies hired by Maryland Terrapins, sources say - ESPN

    SWEET!!! Not quite a done deal yet, but this could be huge.

    Now let's hope they make a terrible hire and Todman goes to the NFL.

    Didn't Todman declare for the NFL last night after the Fiesta Bowl?

    I haven't seen that this is a done deal. Edsall got an interview, as did Leach, and the school plans to announce the hire on Monday.

    Re: Game @ UCONN may have just got easier next year

    With Under Armour financing your program can they rival the uniform options Oregon gets? That right there is a step up. Bet he gets a pay raise too! As long as CPR doesn't come up in any of these conversations its all good.

    Re: Game @ UCONN may have just got easier next year

    This should be a must-win now...have to take advantage of new coaches, and we should have the talent to do so. UConn literally fell into a BCS game this year.

    I am sure this isn't the home-run hire they needed to energize their fanbase. I was hoping Leach or Malzahn would have taken it.

    I'm still waiting for news of Rich Rod's firing at Michigan and then hiring at Pittsburgh.

    They have two wins over top 30 teams this entire season.

    Could mean Leach to UConn.
