Mike Locksley Hired to be the new Head Coach

Recommended Posts

Just saw this. He seemed to find his niche with Alabama and knows the MD/DC/Northern VA area pretty well so that should help in recruiting. 

I like the hire overall. Now let's hope he can go out and recruit a real QB.

If he stabilizes the Program and Recruits like he has in the past I'll be happy. The incidents at New Mexico are concerning but that happened a few years back. I agree with ChrisP. You don't get on Sabans staff without being a damn good Coach.

Jackson has two years of NCAA eligibility left. Although he is coming off a broken leg that derailed his sophomore season, he racked up 2,991 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns and six rushing scores as a redshirt freshman in 2017.

The 6-foot-1 quarterback from Ann Arbor, Michigan, recently entered the NCAA’s transfer portal and reportedly visited the College Park campus over the weekend.

I am not too familiar with NCAA transfer rules, but division 1 to division 1, requires to sit a year out, right????????

Not if you've graduated academically and the grad classes you want to take at another school are not offered at your current school.  That's how a lot of guys get around this.

Good honest article of Fridge's view of Locksley. https://247sports.com/college/maryland/Article/Ralph-Friedgen-Maryland-Football-Michael-Locksley-Terps-Coaching-DJ-Durkin-Hire-132025620/  If Fridge does make the trek to come to a MD game this season, I hope he gets a big standing O.  Maybe he had some issues, but he was one helluvagood football coach at Maryland, and I'm sure it would mean a lot to him and his family - and to Coach Locksley.  .

    • 44,003 for the last three games for 1.3 million.Paid attendance should be close.Really nothing to be excited about but understandable. The last two years the Orioles have lost more games at home then any time ever in a 162 game season.Not sure if it is ever..Mets and Tigers both lost 107 at home consecutively . Tough to watch such bad home team baseball. Still would be the worst average hone attendance since 1978 and of course worst ever at Camden Yards.
    • Do you have a link to this pipeline article?
    • Haha I had totally forgotten.
    • I have the same issues, bad back (and down my right leg) and rotator cuffS. Doesn't wake me up tho. Yes, because of beer I sleep like a baby. I do however wake up start awake many times after 5 or 6 hours. Just from deep sleep to wide awake. I've learned to just get up, fire up my computer and waste some time, Not one drop of coffee. Take my morning drugs, several of which help or cause sleep. Go back to bed in 2 hours or stay up and take a nap in the afternoon. Tossing and turning in bed is never going to be sleep. I can't multi quote it right but I like waking up and having to go to the potty. Every night please! Let's play two! Makes the night seem longer to me.
    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
