This is going to be a big week for Gary Williams and Ralph Friedgen, for different reasons.

Who's week is more important to their team's future?

With Saturday's win at Georgia Tech, Williams is one victory away from No. 600, a milestone that coupled with his national championship could put him in line for a Hall of Fame nomination. With games at Boston College and at home against North Carolina State -- both winnable -- his Terps are suddenly in the top half of the ACC and could stay in the hunt for an NCAA tournament bid.

But I think this is a bigger week for Friedgen's future in College Park.

With national signing day for college football looming on Wednesday -- the same day Williams goes after No. 600 -- the Fridge seems on the brink of having his best recruiting class. Last week's announcement that DeMatha wide receiver Kenny Tate and Quince Orchard defensive tackle Zach Kerr are going to be Terrapins could lead other blue-chippers to follow.

It should be an interesting few days for the Terps and their fans.

Who has more at stake, Gary or Ralph?
