More thoughts on Franklin

Here is another good article on the "coach in waiting" promotion of James Franklin by David Glenn at the ACC Sports Journal. Clearly there is more to this story than just the recruiting angle and the uncertainly regarding how long Ralph Friedgen will remain as the head coach at Maryland was influencing the hiring of assistants.

This USA Today article has some interesting notes on Gary Williams and his situation at Maryland. I was struck by Nolan Richardson's comments regarding his souring relationship with Arkansas eight years after winning a national title.
"Once you create a monster you have to keep feeding it. And sometimes you run out of food, and then the monster comes after you. The monster is the fans and university officials."
