It's interesting that Kevin Anderson was on the Maryland sideline during the 56-41 defeat at North Carolina State in the season-ending football game. Anderson is usually up in a stadium box. But he said he wanted to gauge for himself what was going on with this team. It's not that Anderson was going to fire Edsall. The athletic director is absolutely behind the first-year Maryland coach. But the AD said he will meet with Edsall Saturday night as part of a "top to bottom" review of Edsall's program.

Since Randy Edsall took over for Ralph Friedgen in January, there has been a revolving door of coaches and players shuffling in and out of the Maryland football program. And it still hasn't stopped spinning. In recent weeks, linebacker Ryan Donohue, running back Gary Douglas and quarterback Tyler Smith announced plans to transfer, while fullbacks Haroon Brown and Taylor Watson — both of whom are graduating — decided they wouldn't return for their final season of eligibility. It's the type of attrition one might expect from a coaching change.
