Edsall gets inspiration from Wiz Khalifa about impending job status
Earlier on Thursday, it was reported by 247sports.com that Maryland was set to fire head coach Randy Edsall after Saturday’s game against Ohio State.
The university delivered a statement that said Edsall is still the coach of Maryland, despite the reports swirling. We didn’t hear anything vocal from the Terps coach on Thursday.
But he did reference the one and only Wiz Khalifa with another inspirational quotes. You can read between the lines with this one.
"Worrying is stupid. It's like walking around with an umbrella waiting for it to rain."- Wiz Khalifa

While Edsall may not believe it’s raining, confirmed reports from the likes of 247sports and Yahoo’s Pat Forde would suggest otherwise it’s pouring.
The Terps are coming off one of their worst two-game stretches in program history. In back-to-back losses to West Virginia and Michigan, Maryland was outscored 73-6.
It is possible that Edsall really doesn’t believe the writing on the wall. After all, this is the same coach that had the media inform him that his team had a players only meeting.
Coming into this week, the biggest storyline coming out of College Park was supposed to be which of the three Terps quarterbacks would get the start against the No. 1 Buckeyes. Edsall now appear has far bigger problems to worry about.
But at least he has some inspirational beats to get him through this time of uncertainty.
