    If Taggart was a bad hire cause he was a sub-.500 coach, what is Locksley?

    -fought one of his assistant coaches
    -sued for sexual harassment

    Him and Ellis Johnson are the two all-time worst CFB HCs imo.

    Just because he’s scoring a bunch of points at Bama with 5 stars and Saban pulling the strings doesn’t mean he’s become competent all of a sudden.

    In his half of a season as UMD's interim he went 1-5 with a lone win over Rutgers. UMD should probably get used to that.

    White coach who had a player die on his watch vs a black coach with issues 5+ years ago.

    I live in the area, people seem awfully high on Locksley and don't give a fuck about his previous stuff. They're definitely gonna give him a chance.

    Gunners is right, Locksley is returning home to a hero’s welcome. Maryland grads and Marylanders / Maryland side dmv’ers are starved for a local hero with Alabama fame.

    I read the Post every day. I don’t recall anything negative about Canada. And, I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t end up buttfucking locksley before this is all said and done.

    This is also the school to allow Durkin to stay before the backlash, one of the few schools that does PR worse than Ohio State.

    I'm not trying to argue with you, there could be a number of reasons for Locksley. He's a stud recruiter and killed it at Bama this year.

    Maryland Freshman RB Anthony McFarland had a very inconsistent season, but he torched Ohio State for almost 300 and ran for over 200 against Indiana both in November. He’s got NFL talent.

    It’s not going to be easy in the Big Ten East, but Locksley is going to recruit DMV hard and he’ll get guys who will play right away.

    If you’re Maryland, what else do you do? Resign yourself to a perpetual 6-6, 7-5, 4-8, 6-6 cycle or go with a guy who can get NFL talent in your program right now?

    It’s not like he just won the Frank Broyles Award or done nothing else to redeem himself since.

    This is the fucking Maryland job we’re talking about. It’s not like Penn State just hired him.
