He's already earned the nickname "Rangoon" on the MD boards. They seem to really hate him with a passion, and yesterday's debacle was the capper. How do you lead a game 41-14 with 22 minutes left and lose by 15?
Talk about going from the penthouse to the outhouse. The Washington Post |
writer doesn't pull any punches regarding Edsall's dream job. After Randy coached
his team from a 41-14 lead to a 56-41 loss in his season finale I guess they've

ruined the last college football memories of your senior class - something Edsall never brings
up - bother you at all?
No. Nothing bothers Edsall. Heís never wrong. He coached good; his players played bad. And
