Not surprising in the least. Our Terps have always been overrated during years when they're so-so. The price to pay for a winning team in College Park is rioting in the streets. No thanks... Let 'em lose and let Ralphie Boy find a new contract in Division III. Make the players go to class and earn their degrees.

Don't give up on them yet. As a WVU fan that just watched the WVU/Maryland game, I'd say they are a top 25-35 team.

This loss was un forgivable. You don't go from 3 yards to having a 28 point lead to losing the game.

I will not renew my season tickets next year. They just put themselves on the same level as Division III. Unacceptable. Heck, if Wake had beat them straight up, I could accept it, but not up by 21 and having the ball on the 3 yard line.

What's wrong with Division III? Salisbury plays a tough DII schedule and they have very loyal fans? What does MD losing have to do with DIII level?

"I was trying to help our defense stay off the field," Friedgen said. "I'm worried I got a young quarterback who had just thrown an interception and didn't want to do it again. I got conservative. I'd probably do it again with the same situation, but we've got to be able to run the ball in that situation, too."

Great...1st downs keep the defense off the field, not 3 and outs. I guess since he'd do it again, we have more fun to look forward too. Its about time Ralph steps up and admits when he makes DUMB decisions. Its gotten old.

When is Dow going to say goodbye to this ineffective coach?

I dont believe UMD should get rid of Friedgen at all. Hes an Alumni that will always give back to his school, just as Williams has even after viilified by many posting here for two years of missing the NCAA tourney. But man, the loss Saturday still smarts. Ralph could shut all of us up if he could pull one off at NJU Saturday. GO TERPS!!!!!!

Since he is an alumnus of UMD he should quit without being asked. He has brought Md. down to the level of a 2nd to 3rd tier team. It has been 4 years since Md finished a season ranked in the top 25 and this season's pathetic start will make the 5th year.

Would you rather have another Joe Krivak or Mark Duffner?

I would rather not have another Joe Krivak or Mark Duffner or the equally inept Ralph Friedgen. I would rather have another Jim Tatum or Bobbby Ross as head coach.

If Ralph is so lousy, why is he 20th in winning percentage of all active coaches (around .667). Consider Bobby Bowdens recent malaise the past few years. Not many programs perform at a high level every year nowadys. One just has to think, Notre Dame, Michigan, Nebraska, Arkansas, Tennessee. Syracuse and Brigham Young were Top 20 teams for the longest time, and look at them now. Also consider the teams in the Top 25 now that were never there before. Boise State, Rutgers, TCU, HAwaii (some last year). In the 80's under Ross, a 9-4 record and win over Purdue would have had them in the Top 20. Times have changed.
