He wanted to play and since Tebow is now on board he knew that would not be possible at UF. On top of that Meyer was being pressured on a daily basis by Josh's mother concerning playing time last season. It seems Urban had enough.

You Damn Right, because he is a bright young athelite. He also ran it pretty damn good last year to me at the end of the season

Maryland is a great shool to play football at just look at last years rokkie of the Year Shaun Merriman and the 6th pick in the draft this year Vernon "The Duke" Davis and to top it all off we got the Fridge. POrtis is a great pick up for the program

....Maryland is a great shool to play football at just look at last years rokkie of the Year Shaun Merriman and the 6th pick in the draft this year Vernon "The Duke" Davis and to top it all off we got the Fridge. POrtis is a great pick up for the program....

Yeah, Portis was a "good pick up" for Maryland, but Maryland will not be ass good a decision for Portis. He should have done more to get in somewhere else. Maryland will play for a Nat Title about the same time Mexico State does!( no knock on either really, just fact.)
You "got the Fridge"?...& that's a good thing?...Yeah, he's a few Sausage Sandwiches away from being the FORMER Head Coach at Maryland.
Even if RALPH lives to fulfill his contract, he'll NEVER see another Day where his playing in a BCS, much else for a Nat Title. Portis is a hugely talented kid, who the Gators will miss this season....but he'll never have enUFf of the ACC talent to beat the top teams there. Maryland will always be a team that beats "some" one, but always hangs out at or just above .500.
Portis would have been better at StatePenn or a BIG12 school. He's a multi-talented dude....but apparently he's not as confident as he once was. He was ACTUALLY afraid to compete with Tebow?....which is the real reason he left.
I wish him well,....he should make a fine PRO

....as for the TE and Merriman,....you're really bragging about that? That SOME one from your school was drafted?...and got an award? IF that's all you have to hope for in Maryland, then I guess that says more than anything we could print here!
