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.

Back for a second season, we'll be previewing each of Maryland's football games by conducting a Q&A with a reporter who covers the Terps' next opponent. This week, we traded emails with Jesse Dougherty , sports editor for The Daily Orange, one of the country's most respected college papers. Be sure to check out  more of their coverage here  before the Terps and Orange kick off Saturday at 12:30 at the Carrier Dome.   Tracking the Terps: He's far from a household name, but Scott Shafer has gotten off to a strong start in his year-plus as the head coach at Syracuse.

Many angry Maryland fans handed out a big red "F" when the Terps hired Randy Edsall to be their football coach last month -- mainly because they wanted Mike Leach and his high-flying offense. But Yahoo's Matt Hinton liked the move, giving them a "B" for the hire. "Edsall's not exciting; fans aren't going to start flocking in droves for 8-4 runs to the Champs Sports Bowl," Hinton wrote in this post on his Dr. Saturday blog. "But if he gives Maryland the decade Friedgen did -- that is, six eight-win seasons, seven bowl games and rare conference championship -- this is a good hire.

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.

In the last few years of the Ralph Friedgen era, Maryland struggled to lure the top local talent to College Park. That's something new coach Randy Edsall, who transitioned Connecticut from Div. I-FCS to a BCS bowl, will try to change as he places his stamp on the football program. It's really not fair to judge Edsall by his "first" recruiting class at Maryland because of the uncertainty surrounding Friedgen's job status all season and Edsall only getting a month to clean up the mess after he was hired in early January.

Maryland unveiled a 22-man recruiting class today in College Park. Here are some notes from Randy Edsall's news conference. ** It was a “pretty uneventful” Signing Day, Edsall joked before discussing the Maryland decisions made Wednesday by Friendship Collegiate Academy linebacker Yannick Ngakoue, Suitland wide receiver Taivon Jacobs and Avalon School defensive back Jacquille Veii . “I think that makes a big statement,” the...

I have been critical of many things Maryland football coach Randy Edsallhas said and done over the course of his first season in College Park, but the moves he made in replacing his team's offensive and defensive coordinators are to be applauded -- on a number of fronts. First, new offensive coordinator Mike Lockley is a huge upgrade over any assistant Edsall has brought on when it comes to recruiting. Locksley, too, consistently raised the performance of his offense in the four years he held the coordinator's position at Illinois under Ron Zook.

Last month, former Maryland assistant and current Penn State football coach James Franklin came to the area and declared the Nittany Lions would treat Maryland as its home state - even though it's already someone else's home state. Franklin said area schools " might as well shut ... down because they don't have a chance. " On Monday, Randy Edsall responded to that at a charity golf tournament on Franklin's home turf: “Talk is cheap,” Edsall said, according to the York Dispatch . "We're not gonna boast and brag,” Edsall told the Dispatch.

Maryland coach Randy Edsall said Sunday that freshman receiver-returner Stefon Diggs must learn to keep his emotions in check when the opposing team provokes him. ”He can't go and do what he did there,” Edsall said, referring to an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty assessed against Diggs during Maryland's 33-13 loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday. Diggs appeared to toss the football at a Yellow Jackets player in the first half. “He's got to understand that there will be people that will try to get inside his head,” Edsall said.

COLLEGE PARK -  At different points, Maryland's media relations staff is responsible for tracking down Terps players. Some players can be more difficult to find or get in touch with. But Matt Taylor, Maryland's primary media contact for football, says sophomore cornerback Will Likely is not one of them. If Likely is not in class or on the practice field, Taylor says Likely is often just in the Terps' defensive back team meeting room evaluating film. People can see Likely's talent.

It's hard to imagine what the snarling football coaches of yesteryear — think Bear Bryant or Woody Hayes — would have made of the poetry on the helmet and sleeves of the uniforms the University of Maryland played in Saturday. But the Under Armour designers of Maryland's "Star-Spangled" uniforms, which highlight the Francis Scott Key poem "Defence of Fort M'Henry" in cursive, would like to think that the old-school coaches might have approved. The uniforms, which the Terrapins wore in Saturday's home loss to West Virginia, were intended to promote the team and inspire players and fans.

Maryland running back Wes Brown did not play during the Terps' loss to West Virginia on Saturday, something Terps coach Randy Edsall later explained as a “head coach's decision.” However, Brown is “good to go” for Saturday's game against Syracuse, Edsall said Sunday. “I just, as a head coach, decided not to play him yesterday,” Edsall said. “We've got a new week today. … He was out there last week. But like I said, I made a decision that he wasn't going to play.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland football team had plenty of self-inflicted wounds in Saturday's 40-37 loss to West Virginia. The Terps also did not get much help from the officials, most notably during the game's final minutes. First, officials marked Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown a yard short of a first down after a run on which the quarterback appeared to cross the first-down marker at the 37-yard line. Instead, officials marked the ball at the 36.

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.

Maryland football coach Randy Edsall offered condolences today to former Terp and current Raven Torrey Smith, whose younger brother, Tevin, was killed in a motorcycle accident. Edsall said Maryland's football program was thinking about Smith and his family and “praying for them.” Smith, who played for former coach Ralph Friedgen, remains close with  current and former Terps players. He trains with many of them during the offseason and returns occasionally to College Park.

What's that old saying? “If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.” After losing its second starting quarterback to the same injury -- an anterior cruciate ligament tear -- Maryland is left to start again at quarterback. I'll have a story for tomorrow's paper on the two guys left standing -- Caleb Rowe and Devin Burns. They are very different sorts of players. Rowe is a pocket passer. Two teammates described him to me today as a "gunslinger" because of the way he whips the ball downfield during two-minute drills in practice.

Shortly after Maryland escaped with a 24-17 win over South Florida on Saturday, Terps coach Randy Edsall stood in front of his team inside the visiting locker room at Raymond James Stadium and was blunt with his offense. “I told them afterward that we were awful offensively,” Edsall said. There were plenty of issues. But one thing is undeniable: The Terps need more from quarterback C.J. Brown as a passer. Brown was just 11 of 24 for 111 yards during Maryland's 52-7 season-opening win over James Madison.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland coach Randy Edsall called freshman Will Ulmer in for a meeting Monday. When they sat down, both agreed it would be best for Ulmer to make the move from quarterback to wide receiver. Ulmer was committed to being a quarterback through preseason practice. But he worked some at wide receiver with the scout team as the Terps prepared for their season opener against James Madison last week, and Edsall said Ulmer is now excited about the prospects of playing his new position.
