Rumour has it that Don Brown's players lobbied for his retention at Maryland. They got their wish; he was kept as DC by new coach Randy Edsell. Stories here and here.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speaking of UConn, this article discusses possible replacements for Edsell at Storrs. The UConn AD says they'll move quickly.

Bill McGovern of BC who interviewed for the UMass HC, has met with UConn.

Meanwhile, at Pitt things are melting down. They fired Dave Wannstedt and his assistants, then the new head coach Mike Haywood was fired due to domestic violence.

Now their recruiting class is evaporating.

TSN has a writeup on Friday's National Championship game.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kyle Havens and John Griffin  are in the latest edition of Josh buchanan's Top 100 FCS players eligible for the NFL draft.

BTW, Havens 2,692 yards in 2010 puts him 6th in all-time career passing yards at UMass. He's behind Peil Pennington and ahead of now #7 Tim Day. His career 29 TD passes places Havens as #6 all-time between Dave Palazzi (31) and Tim Day (27).
