Report: Edsall expected to be fired after Ohio State game

Posted on 08 October 2015 by WNST Staff

With support waning and Maryland football off to a 2-3 start in 2015, head coach Randy Edsall is reportedly expected to be fired after Saturday’s trip to No. 1 Ohio State.

According to InsideMDSports.com, the school intends to dismiss the fifth-year head coach during next week’s bye. The 57-year-old originally signed a six-year, $10 million contract upon being hired, but Maryland gave him a three-year extension earlier this year with just $500,000 guaranteed.

The university issued the following statement in response to the report on Thursday afternoon:

“Randy Edsall is our head football coach, and he’ll be on the sidelines Saturday against Ohio State.”

Edsall is just 22-33 as head coach of the Terps after previously being credited with transitioning the University of Connecticut into a bona fide Division I FBS program.

Maryland receiving all-too-early hype as top 5 team in 2015-16

Posted on 07 April 2015 by Luke Jones

Even as the final tones of “One Shining Moment” were ringing in your head early Tuesday morning, the college basketball world was wasting no time looking ahead to next year.

And if the “all-too-early” looks at the 2015-16 season are any indication, the Maryland Terrapins could be entering territory they haven’t seen in more than a decade. With the confirmation that point guard Melo Trimble will return for his sophomore year and the arrival of five-star center Diamond Stone, the Terps are on track to be a consensus top 5 preseason pick in the minds of several experts.

The Sporting News’ Mike DeCourcy envisions Maryland as the No. 3 team in the nation, citing less dependence on perimeter shots with Stone and Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter manning the frontcourt next season.

CBS Sports projects the Terps at No. 4 behind two old ACC foes — No. 1 Virginia and No. 2 North Carolina — in the “ridiculously early” preseason top 25. Gary Parrish sees a “Final Four-caliber roster” for head coach Mark Turgeon.

Not to be outdone, ESPN’s Eamonn Brennan likes Maryland as his No. 5 squad and the preseason Big Ten favorite “by a wide margin” because of the core four of Trimble, senior Jake Layman, sophomore Jared Nickens, and Stone.

Do these absurdly-premature preseason rankings mean anything? No, but it’s another reminder of how far Turgeon’s program has come over the last calendar year.

And it allows you to daydream about the possibility of the Terps headlining next year’s “One Shining Moment” package after having to watch Mike Krzyzewski and Duke do it again on Monday night.

Five-star recruit Diamond Stone commits to Maryland

Posted on 28 March 2015 by Luke Jones

Less than a week after its season came to a disappointing end in the NCAA tournament’s round of 32, the University of Maryland received a commitment that could springboard the Terps into the national title discussion for 2016.

Five-star big man Diamond Stone announced his intentions to attend Maryland on Friday night, which suddenly transforms a frontcourt that was the Terps’ biggest weakness this season into a major strength. The 6-foot-10 center out of Dominican High School in Milwaukee will combine with Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter to form an imposing twosome.

Stone took an official visit to Maryland back in October and had narrowed his choices down to the Terps, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and Oklahoma State. His arrival coupled with the return of freshman sensation Melo Trimble will arguably give Maryland its most talented team since the 2002 national championship squad.

A McDonald’s All-American this past season, Stone averaged 24.4 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 3.0 blocks per game.

Maryland’s strong ties with Kevin Plank and Under Armour likely helped in his recruitment as the shoe and apparel company sponsored Stone’s AAU team.

Trimble reportedly planning to return to Maryland next year

Posted on 24 March 2015 by Luke Jones

After completing one of the best freshman seasons in University of Maryland basketball history, point guard Melo Trimble will apparently stay put next season.

According to InsideMDSports.com, Trimble plans to return to College Park for his sophomore season after leading the Terps in scoring with 16.2 points per game. His efforts were a major factor in Maryland making it back to the NCAA tournament for the first time in five years.

Most NBA draft experts projected Trimble to be selected no earlier than the end of the first round, making his decision relatively easy despite trepidation from many fans in College Park. At only 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, Trimble will need to improve his skills as a pure point guard in order to give himself the best chance to succeed at the next level.

Head coach Mark Turgeon has the potential to oversee his best team yet at Maryland next year with Dez Wells being the only significant departure from this year’s squad. The Terps will be adding Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter and junior college point guard Jaylen Brantley to the mix for the 2015-2016 season while Trimble, Jake Layman, and Jared Nickens — three of Maryland’s top four scorers this past season — will return.

Trimble, a former McDonald’s All-American, made 41 percent of his 3-point shots as a freshman and showed a tremendous ability to get to the free-throw line, making 86 percent of his attempts from the charity stripe.

The Upper Marlboro native was a first-team all-Big Ten selection voted by the conference media.
