Shannon won't be Maryland defensive coordinator

His lazy a-- will just be sitting around doing tv gigs, mumbling incoherently, while collecting Miami's 1.5 mil buyout. You guys can do better than a simplistic base cover 2 with no blitz packages IMO.

Perhaps, but his Florida recruiting chops would have been huge.

As the DC at Miami, his defenses were always among the best in the country, especially in creating turnovers IIRC. I'm sure a lot of it had to do with the talent he had, but that still only gets you so far.

And while I don't think MD would suddenly be getting major 5-star recruits from Florida if Shannon were working down there for them, I'm sure that the caliber of recruits he'd bring in would be a noticeable improvement over what the Terps currently get.

If there's a better available option out there to be the DC, I sure don't see who it could possibly be.

The point is moot now, but Randy wore out his welcome at many a high school in the state of Florida, even S. Fla. I don't think he'd be the recruiting monster down there that a lot of people are touting him as. I guess this takes away from a lot of the spotlight for the Canes/Terps game next year.

Missed this at first, and could be valid.

Ron Vanderlinden may be coming back to MD.

I don't see this happening. Vanderlinden is a likely successor for the Head Coaching job at Penn State when Joe Paterno retires, which at age 85, should be very soon.

I'm more upset about being rejected by Shannon. He was arguably the best option out there, and this is a bit of a slap in the face to Edsall. Going from best to second best, is never good.

I've heard a few names thrown out there sense Shannon won't be coming . On the radio they were saying Penn state d-line ast coach Larry Johnson. I don't know much about the guy except son played in the NFL.

I really wanted us to get Shannon and think he would of been huge for this defense , I really hope Edsall has something up his sleeve

I don't see it as a rejection. It simply makes perfect sense for Shannon not to take the job if he'd have to forfeit a $1.5 million buyout. As the DC, Maryland would probably only pay him about half that amount per year. So if you're Shannon, do you take a 50% pay cut to go coach, or do you take $1.5 million to do nothing, and maybe even make a little more cash by doing some TV/radio work? Easy choice, IMO.

And there is no way UMd should have paid him $1.5 million to be a DC, so I have no problem with them not matching that amount.

I keep hearing Larry Johnson's name, but I honestly don't know if he'd be a good DC or not. He obviously has great local ties that would help with recruiting, but you'd think if he was defensive coordinator material someone would have already lured him away from Penn St.

To be fair, people said that fifteen years ago. I think at this point he's going to coach that program until long after he passes away.

    • If you’d asked me a few weeks ago, I probably would have told you that I didn’t care if Aaron Judge hit homer 60, 61 or 62 against us.    I’m not sure what’s changed, but in the words of the great Mox from Varsity Blues, “I say, ‘**** that.’”  I do not want to see our guys pitching to him this weekend.    I do not want to see Judge (who, for the record, I don’t have much of a problem with) celebrating at our expense. I don’t want to see his teammates celebrating at our expense. I sure as hell don’t want to see their fans celebrating at our expense.    Nothing would please me more this weekend than seeing Yankee fans crying about how we walked Judge 12-15 times over three games and how they bought tickets to see him hit #62 and blah blah blah.  Nothing would please me more than, after years of seeing Judge destroy our pitching, giving him absolutely nothing to hit and having him stand on first base all weekend while the boos rain down. I want us to be the bad guys. I want us to be the killjoys.  I do not want Hyde to give in. And even if he does have our guys pitch to Judge, I want our guys to be smart and throw everything in the dirt. Or airmail it over the home plate umpire.    I doubt it happens.  I’m sure some poor sap like Baumann or Baker or Krehbiel or  Reed will go down in history as the sucker who grooved a belt high fastball to Judge for #62. He’ll be on replays forever.  And after the game he’ll give some stock answer about “wanting to challenge him” or something which is silly because our pitching hasn’t ever been a challenge for Judge.    So, Hyde and/or Elias, if you’re reading, just walk Judge all weekend long. Make the Yankees and their fans miserable. Be the bad guys. Don’t let anyone have fun at our expense. It’s a new era for Orioles baseball, we’re no longer a laughingstock. No longer a team to set records against. No longer a team to beat up on.  Do not give in.    Milligan, out. 
    • I think it's pretty simple... they like him more than Tyler Nevin as a backup 1B, and they don't trust anyone else on the team to play first base. There were reports of Santander and Gunnar taking reps at first but nothing saying that the results were passable. I'm guessing they didn't like what they saw.
    • Not to mention this was AFTER Hays ruined the chances last night by GIDP against Barnes and like clockwork he repeats the feat. So yea Mullins just might have been a better option there.
    • Well, Chirinos did hit a homer!  
    • I feel like Elias has decided recently that they are out of it, and now its about securing better odds for the draft lottery by putting out lineups like today's.
