We Must Protect This House … Starting Next Year

NC State fans will recognize this story – hotshot coach returns to his alma mater and immediately affects positive changes in the program. Expectations immediately rise along with the excitement, but after a few years the team isn’t really winning any more than they were before he showed up. Chuck Amato’s story, say hello to Ralph Friedgen’s story.
Fridge came in and immediately kicked the Maryland program into the conference elite, winning 10, 11 and then 10 games in his first three year – a stunning reversal of fortune for a school which had basically no football success for well over a decade. Unfortunately, just as the Terrapin faithful were beginning their 35-story gilded statue of the Rotund One, the football team had back-to-back losing seasons.
Now what? Well, just like everywhere else, they look to next year. Next year everything will be better again, right? Right?
