Edsall didn't know anything about players only meeting
Times have been better in College Park.
After a 45-6 loss to West Virginia, Randy Edsall’s team had to regroup. Apparently not all of that regrouping had to involve Edsall.
The Baltimore Sun reported on Tuesday morning that the Terps had a players only meeting.
Maryland had a players only meeting before this morning's practice at 6:45. Leadership council guys (Craddock, W. Brown, Rowe) spoke.

Players only meetings happen all the time, though usually they’re a more common practice at the professional ranks.
The newsworthy element wasn’t the fact that they had the meeting, it’s that their coach was informed about it during Tuesday’s Big Ten Teleconference. When asked about the Baltimore Sun’s report, Edsall responded with even less knowledge than the reporter who asked the question.
Maryland coach Randy Edsall asked about a players-only meeting this morning. Edsall said he has no idea about it.

Edsall didn’t necessarily say that was a bad thing.
Edsall then said on the Big Ten call if something productive came from it, then great, but said he knew nothing about players-only meeting

The Maryland coach was transparent on Monday when he informed the media that Caleb Rowe, who was one of the three players that spoke at the meeting, would remain the team’s starting quarterback.
Rowe completed 10-of-27 passes for 67 yards and four interceptions in the Terps’ 45-6 loss on Saturday. He was replaced by Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman, who threw an interception but also connected with Jahrvis Davenport for Maryland’s first and only touchdown of the day.
Maryland would look to bounce back when it hosts No. 22 Michigan on Saturday to kick off B1G play.
