This will be another homecoming of sorts for this season. last home game had one of our former head coach's on the opposing sideline. This week, we get the flip side of that picture. Our head coach faces his former program.

I look forward to a great afternoon at the stadium, a hard hitting, well played game, and win for the guys in blue.

We're 3-5. You are what your record says you are, so if you don't like it - change it.

We don't win this game on Saturday. We win it today, and tomorrow. I'm a broken record by now, for many of you with this stuff. But it's the truth. these players and coaches need to seriously evaluate themselves on what they can each and every one do to become better as individuals and a team, and then do it every day.

The post season goals for the season are hanging in the balance this week. We've put ourselves in this position, now we've got the opportunity to start climbing out of it, with a big sentimental win next Saturday.

Go blue!

This has been a tough season, but wins over the Orange and Rutgers would heal alot of wounds. Shockingly a bowl game is not out of the question. Three very winnable games coming up. Win those and get an invite to Yankee Stadium and everyone is happy.

I agree. Looking forward to seeing some orange juice on the field next weekend.

CarL - spot on saying players AND Coaches. IMO coaches have not performed as well as fhcRE. Bad calls on 3rd and short, terrible clock management and lack of finishing it off in the red zone due to poor play calling. Getting 3 points consistently vs TD has sucked the life out of this team. Saved best for last. Stubbornly staying with QB rather than trying an alternative.

At some point will people realize that whatever happens with Edsall somewhere else has no bearing on what he did here? If he takes Maryland to the BCS NC game, that doesn't mean he was any better here and if he gets fired at halftime next week it doesn't mean he was any worse here.

I agree - just tired of all the talk of Edsall vs Coach PP

bottom line: RE did fine job here and deserves praise
The way he left is a psychological issue that we have no right to judge. It will keep a great man from greatness, however.
