If any of his coaching peers can relate to what Randy Edsall is going through in his first season at Maryland, it is the man who will be on the opposing sideline Saturday night at FedEx Field in Landover. Like Edsall, Brian Kelly came to a more high-profile position - in the case of Notre Dame, one of the most highly-scrutinized in the country - after having success at a Big East school. And, as Edsall has already experienced in his first 10 months in College Park, many wondered if Kelly was the right man for the job. Some still do. Though recent victories over Navy and Wake Forest have helped soften the mood since Kelly - like Edsall - questioned the level of talent he inherited in South Bend from Charlie Weis when he was hired before last season, the coach who built Cincinnati and two smaller programs into perennial winners believes it is part of the transition most coaches go through when changing jobs.

Here is the fifth installment of a series that checks in with the eight Division III programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Monday's visit was with Frostburg State. Tuesday's visit is with Goucher. REVIEW The good: Few teams endured what the Gophers went through after sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel was killed in a hit-and-run incident on April 14. The tragedy rocked the players and coaches, but the Gabriel family encouraged the team to continue the season, and the players responded by advancing to the Landmark Conference tournament final.

Goucher's season could have ended literally and metaphorically on April 14 when sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel died of injuries he suffered during a hit-and-run the day before. But once he had the backing of the Gabriel family, coach Brian Kelly knew the campaign would go on. What he was uncertain of was whether the same could be said about the team. “Immediately following with the Catholic game [on April 17], we were purely playing off of emotion and energy,” he recalled.

There needs to be a wider vision for the proposed slots parlor on Russell Street. Moving the Preakness to a new world-class facility in the Camden-Carroll industrial park would reinforce the slots parlor opposite Russell Street and feed off the success of Camden Yards. Also, adjacent to the site is the mouth of the Gwynns Falls that empties into Ridgley's Cove. This presents an opportunity to restore a natural landscape feature and demonstrate Baltimore's leadership in environment and recycling.

Brian Kelly will be introduced today as the next Notre Dame coach. He will, of course, instantly be ordained a savior, though he'll do well to just be Brian Kelly, with the peak-volume personality and production that suggests. He is a championship-program craftsman. He has the magnetic, kinetic charisma befitting the son of an Irish-Catholic alderman from Boston. He led Cincinnati to two straight Bowl Championship Series bids. It is the hire Notre Dame had to make, the energy and optimism transfusion a lilting powerhouse had to have.

The Notre Dame-Florida State matchup in the Dec. 29 Champs Sports Bowl is a toast to epic college football history and, for a second-tier bowl, fairly cool. It also loses some of its impact if any current player has a spotty Internet connection. Asked about the 1993 showdown between the No. 1 Seminoles and No. 2 Irish, receiver Michael Floyd described his familiarity this way Sunday: "I've seen it on YouTube," Floyd deadpanned. In the present tense, two teams that began the year in the Top 25 with BCS hopes, then flopped early only to recover for 8-4 seasons, will reconvene in Orlando, Fla., to determine who puts a happy punctuation mark on their season.

Joe Paterno continues to impress. The 84-year-old coach passed Grambling State great Eddie Robinson with his 409th win Saturday, giving him the record for the most victories by a Division I football coach. If South Carolina is going to win the SEC East, it's going to be with defense. Everyone knew losing Marcus Lattimore would be a huge blow for the Gamecocks, and that showed against Tennessee. South Carolina needs to stop people to have a chance to win. Clemson's loss is another disappointment for the ACC. After several frustrating seasons, the ACC seemed to have a national title contender in the Tigers.

When Goucher opened the season with a 13-9 victory over Birmingham-Southern, the initial thought was that the team that had captured two of the last three Landmark Conference tournaments might be able to extend that success under Kyle Hannan - who left for Division I Mercer - into 2013. The Gophers then dropped their next six contests before turning the tide with a 5-1 record over their last six games, and they are now tied with Scranton for first place in the conference with identical 4-0 marks.

Coach Brian Kelly knows he won't know if the problems that No. 8 Washington College exposed in Saturday's 16-7 rout against Goucher will be solved until the Gophers take Beldon Field in Towson on Wednesday against No. 19 Gettysburg. But one area he won't have to fret about is the identity of the starter in the cage. Junior Karl Wiszumerski made a game-high 12 saves against the Shoremen in his first career start. He was credited with zero turnovers and was a plus in the clearing game, which is usually a shaky area for first-time goalkeepers.

A number of factors - being on the wrong end of the ground ball and shot battles and having problems with the man-up offense and man-down defense - played a collaborative role in Goucher's 16-7 loss to Washington College on Saturday. But if there is one lesson Gophers coach Brian Kelly can glean from the season opener, it's that the problems can be addressed and fixed. “They're definitely correctable mistakes,” he said Tuesday morning. “For 30 minutes, what Goucher lacrosse was all about was effective.

Goucher's search for a fresh face at goalkeeper for the first time in three years has been completed. Junior Karl Wiszumerski will make his first collegiate start in the net when the Gophers open the season at No. 9 Washington College on Saturday. Wiszumerski beat out sophomore Stefan Schultz and freshman Peter Hayes for the honor, coach Brian Kelly announced Friday morning. “Karl Wiszumerski will be our starter,” Kelly said. “He's a junior that has really, really played great lacrosse here in the preseason.

When asked to reminisce about Goucher's 6-5 loss to the Merchant Marine Academy in the semifinals of the Landmark Conference tournament on May 1 - an outcome that prevented the top-seeded Gophers from capturing their third tournament crown in four years - coach Brian Kelly quipped, “Do we have to?” It's encouraging to see that Kelly's sense of humor hasn't been affected by that setback, but the second-year coach said the loss resonated throughout the program at the time. “We were 6-0 in our conference and felt pretty good about where we were heading into the tournament,” he said.

Thursday's entry is the fourth installment of a series taking a look at each of the eight Division III programs in this state, according to their order of finish from last season. The Sun's lacrosse preview is slated to be published on Friday, Feb. 7. This is Goucher's turn. Overview: After two Landmark Conference tournament championships in three years, the Gophers ran through the league with a perfect 6-0 record last season and seemed poised to add a third crown. But a stunning 6-5 loss to Merchant Marine in the semifinals of the conference tournament had Goucher sitting on the sideline in the postseason.

Goucher's struggles on defense this past spring could be traced to several sources, but one important factor may have been an upheaval in personnel. Before the season even began, the team learned that starting defenseman Paul Taylor, who had recorded 68 ground balls and 44 caused turnovers in 2012, had exhausted his eligibility. Sophomore short-stick defensive midfielder David Waligurski (18 GB, 5 CT) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in the fall and would sit out the entire campaign.

Notre Dame announced this week that the Fighting Irish will wear special green jerseys and gaudy 24-carat gold leaf helmets for Saturday night's “Shamrock Series” game against Maryland at FedEx Field in Landover. Refusing to be outdone when it comes to ugly uniforms , Maryland coach Randy Edsall revealed on his Twitter account Wednesday that the Terps will wear their “Pride” uniforms, the ones they wore in the season opener. On the Pride uniforms, the Maryland flag is prominently displayed on the helmets and the shoulders and sleeves of the jerseys.

Goucher, which wrapped up the top seed and home-field advantage in the upcoming Landmark Conference tournament, will conclude the regular season with Saturday's home contest against the Merchant Marine. The Mariners will visit Gopher Stadium again on Wednesday as Goucher's semifinal opponent in the conference tournament. Gophers coach Brian Kelly compared Saturday's game to a “dress rehearsal” for the tournament. “It's obviously a dress rehearsal for a game that will have a lot of significance for Wednesday,” he said Tuesday.
