Edsall says Terps are team in transition

I mentioned in an earlier post that I wanted to make sure I understood exactly what Maryland football coach Randy Edsall meant when he said after the Temple game:

"This is a process we're in. It's a process. It wasn't going to get changed overnight."

So I asked the new coach about the quote today. As I expected, he said Maryland was in transition from the Friedgen years (he didn't mention Friedgen by name) but NOT in a rebuilding mode.

Edsall provided a lengthy answer. I'm guessing he was happy to elaborate on the Saturday quote, which got quite a bit of attention.

Here is some of his response:

"You have to establish a program – a protocol for how everything is done. It's not what just happens on the football field."

"The process doesn't happen overnight because people don't just change overnight. It takes time, especially if young people aren't used to being held accountable. Or they're not used to doing thing correctly all the time."

"Where there [were] issues, we made tremendous strides. But we had to make strides academically, we had to make strides in terms of doing the right thing and doing it the right way."

I'll have more on this in a story that will appear tonight for tomorrow's paper. Since I raised the issue of the quote initially, I wanted to get this to you now.
