Wednesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

September 16, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Internet issues here at 1550 Hart Rd. (my fault, not anyone’s here) this morning kept me from polishing off Crabs and Beer this morning, so I didn’t get to comment on Lisa Horne’s note on FoxSports.com that Maryland & Virginia would be in a bidding war for the services of Jeff Jagodzinski as head coach.

Insane.

Maryland has a succession plan. James Franklin will be the next head coach. Economically, even a 2-10 season couldn’t change such plans. That’s just where they’re at.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….
