Prayers are Being Answered?!?

My Christmas prayers have a chance of being answered - Maryland just bought out Ralph Friedgen's contract for the final year of his deal! Now if this isn't a sign that Maryland made the wrong move with their athletic director, I have no idea what is. Friedgen just won the ACC Coach of the Year award (and it really could only have been him or Beamer) by taking a team that had no business doing so and winning 8 games and being one win away from playing for the ACC title.

The reason he got let go is because they lost their offensive coordinator in James Franklin (the Maryland AD hated the "coach-in-waiting" idea anyway), and I bet there was a disagreement on who Friedgen would bring in as replacement. He's asked to step down, he says no, and they buyout his contract. This new athletic director has been itching to put his stamp on the program since he got there, and here's his chance.

The reason my prayers could be answered is because Friedgen and Beamer are great friends. Friedgen isn't the best recruiter but he is one helluva good coach (obviously) and would make an AMAZING offensive coordinator. Oh PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE replace Bryan Stinespring with Friedgen as offensive coordinator and move Stiney to recruiting coordinator. We need a movement among the Superfans to make this happen before some other program snaps Friedgen up. If this change was made we would ALL have a Merry Christmas.
