Randy Edsall is making academics a priority for the Maryland Terps. It’s all part of Edsall’s plan to lay a strong foundation for his new program.

Senior wide receiver Quinton McCree told the Washington Times,“The day he walked in and gave a speech, I knew he was about business. I knew ‘That’s it.’ It’s like when I went to Hargrave Military Academy. It was no playing around. It was straight academics.”

Edsall said, “If we don’t teach them that, then were not doing what were supposed to. If we do those things, the results out on the field, that’ll happen. I’m confident that’s going to happen. If you don’t lay the foundation right from the get go, it’s not going to happen.”

We were surprised to hear offensive coordinator Gary Crowton has implemented certain parts of Oregon’s offensive scheme. The Baltimore Sun has reported the Terps spent time watching Oregon film this spring and will utilize some of the up-tempo style that has become the staple of the Ducks' offense.

Edsall's first game as the Maryland head coach will be against Miami (FL). Out of the gates, the Terps host Miami (FL), West Virginia, and Temple.

Here are some highlights of the Maryland spring game:
