Maryland football players and coaches spent Sunday breaking down and critiquing their 52-24 loss Saturday to Ohio State at Byrd Stadium. Now the Terps hope to take advantage of their bye week before preparing for their Oct. 18 home game against Iowa. In particular, Maryland (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten Conference) will look to get as healthy as possible. Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15. Starters such as inside linebackers Cole Farrand and L.A. Goree also have been playing through injuries.

COLLEGE PARK - The contracts Maryland signed with its new men's basketball and football coaches contain incentives reflecting athletic department priorities - competing nationally, quickly leasing luxury stadium suites and selling more football season tickets, and improving athletes' classroom performance. The contracts, obtained Thursday in a public records request, guarantee football coach Randy Edsall $2 million over each of the next six years and basketball coach Mark Turgeon $1.9 million a year over eight years.

Maryland announced on Thursday that football season ticket sales have increased 25 percent since last year. That means coach Randy Edsall will receive a $100,000 bonus, according to Edsall's contract. Edsall signed a six-year deal with the Terps in 2011 that is worth $2 million annually. Among the incentives in the contract is a $100,000 bonus if Maryland's season ticket sales increase 25 percent or more in a year. In addition to season ticket sales, the Terps' overall attendance is up 25 percent from last season, the biggest increase of any school within the Power 5 conferences.

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.

Everything seemed to be going against Randy Edsall bringing in a respectable first recruiting class at Maryland. A 2-10 record is typically a repellant for many prospective college players. Turmoil among the current players and coaching staff can also make even marginal talent shy away. Given what transpired with Edsall and the Terps the past few months, Wednesday's National Signing Day was considered a step in the right direction — and possibly more. The 24-player class was led by five four-star recruits: Good Counsel running back Wes Brown and offensive tackle Mike Madaras, linebacker Abner Logan of Cambridge, Mass., running back Albert Reid of Washington and offensive lineman Nick Brigham of Atlanta.

Barbara Edsall gently eased her Honda Civic down the hill to the intersection of Main Street and Baltimore Street. The stoplight was red. "Randy always talks about being a country bumpkin from a town that has one signal light," Barbara Edsall said as she sat waiting for the light to change. . "This is the one signal light. " The intersection is at the center of what was once a rural, agricultural and factory town of about 1,800 but seems now, more than three decades after Randy Edsall left to become its first Division I scholarship athlete in memory, part of the suburban sprawl between Baltimore and Harrisburg.

At 6 feet 4 and 220 pounds, Kenny Tate looks like a linebacker. Beginning with spring practices next week, Maryland's All-Atlantic Coast Conference safety from 2010 will do more than look the part — he'll play it, too. Maryland coach Randy Edsall said Friday that Tate is moving to "Star"— a hybrid linebacker-safety position in which he will essentially be an outside linebacker. The shift means that Tate, a solid NFL prospect, will have undergone position shifts under each of his head coaches before his college career is over.

COLLEGE PARK -  On Saturday, Michigan coach Brady Hoke failed to immediately remove quarterback Shane Morris from the Wolverines' game against Minnesota despite Morris displaying concussion-like symptoms after a blow to the head. He then allowed Morris to re-enter the game a few plays later before finally being pulled from the game for good. In the days since, Hoke and Michigan have been the target of heavy criticism on a national level, and it did not help that Wolverines athletic director Dave Brandon acknowledged in a statement sent out early Tuesday morning that Morris has since been diagnosed with a probable mild concussion . Without critiquing Hoke or Michigan, Terps coach Randy Edsall laid out the team's concussion protocol Tuesday when asked how Maryland approaches players who display concussion-like symptoms.

The University of Connecticut has completed fundraising for a memorial in honor of former Huskies cornerback Jasper Howard, who was killed at an on-campus dance in 2009. The “lead gift” for the memorial came from Maryland's Randy Edsall, who was Howard's coach at Connecticut. “Jasper Howard represented everything that is good about college athletics,” Edsall said in a statement released by Connecticut. “He loved being a student-athlete at UConn. His tragic death had a bonding reaction with the entire UConn community that none of us will ever forget for the rest of our lives.” Former Connecticut players, as well as Huskies fans from around the country, contributed towards constructing the statue as well.

COLLEGE PARK -- For Maryland, Saturday's game at Syracuse is a chance to get back on track after last week's loss to West Virginia and an opportunity to move to 3-1 heading into Big Ten play. But for Terps coach Randy Edsall , it is also a return to his alma mater. Edsall was a quarterback at Syracuse from 1976-79. He then began his coaching career at Syracuse as a graduate assistant 1980 and spent 11 seasons on the Orange's staff before moving on to Boston College in 1991.

COLLEGE PARK - On a typical Saturday night after a game, Maryland coach Randy Edsall will sit in his home office and break down the film, going through and analyzing each play while also grading the performance of each player. And whether it was from home or from his office inside Gossett Team House, Edsall spent Saturday night evaluating the film of the Terps ' loss to West Virginia on Saturday afternoon. What he saw? A lot of mistakes and missed opportunities that led to Maryland falling behind, 28-6, early and eventually losing, 40-37.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland coach Randy Edsall had a brief conversation with quarterback C.J. Brown before the Terps' practice Tuesday morning. The primary message? Relax. Have fun. And stop overanalyzing. Brown has struggled as a passer through Maryland's first two games, and Edsall said he feels like the sixth-year senior overthinking things has contributed to the issues. Brown completed 17 of his 28 pass attempts for 201 yards and two touchdowns during the Terps' win over South Florida Saturday, but he threw two interceptions and also had a fumble that a South Florida defender returned for a touchdown.

It's customary for coaches to give out game balls after a win -- usually one to a defensive player, one to an offensive player and then one to a special teams player. But Maryland coach Randy Edsall gave out 12 after the Terps' 52-7 win over James Madison on Saturday -- one to a defensive player (L.A. Goree), one to safety Sean Davis for his work on special teams and then 10 to the players whose blocking he felt helped the Terps rush for 285 yards and five touchdowns. Those players were: left tackle Michael Dunn, left guard Silvano Altamirano, center Sal Conaboy, right guard Andrew Zeller, right tackle Ryan Doyle, tight end Andrew Isaacs, fullback Kenneth Goins Jr. (Gilman)

COLLEGE PARK -- Two of Randy Edsall's primary concerns entering preseason practice remain two of the coach's top concerns as Maryland now gets ready to wrap up camp: Depth at cornerback and depth along the offensive line. “[Those are] probably the two positions I would like to have more depth,” Edsall said. At cornerback, the Terrapins have sophomore Will Likely, junior Alvin Hill and senior Jeremiah Johnson, a top three Edsall and defensive coordinator Brian Stewart have voiced confidence in. But the players behind those three lack experience.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland will scrimmage Wednesday before wrapping up preseason practice Thursday, but Tuesday's morning session was the last practice of camp that was open to the media. Here are some notes: * Coach Randy Edsall reiterated that Brandon Ross is Maryland's top running back. He also said Albert Reid is currently No. 2 on the depth chart, while Wes Brown is No. 3. “We are going to continue to look at it and continue to evaluate it,” Edsall said. “We've got a couple more days here, and we'll see where it all shakes out. Those guys are working hard and doing a good job. Hopefully they can continue to do that.” * Edsall was highly complimentary of senior outside linebacker Matt Robinson.
