After finishing the 2011 season with a 2-10 record, the Maryland Terrapins football team has to do better in 2012. Although the team has had its share fair of struggles, this was their worst season since finishing 2-10 just two years ago in 2009.
What made this season even more disappointing was it was the first season under head coach Randy Edsall. Edsall's hiring was supposed to bring a change to Maryland football, yet already he's coached a team way worse than the 9-4 team Ralph Friedgen coached last season. If he wants job security, Edsall is going to have to inspire his team to play better.
This begins with offseason workouts. Already the Terrapins have had an interesting offseason that has included signing a four-star recruit. If their players can spend the offseason working hard on improving and getting closer to each other, Maryland could easily improve their record this season.
Here are five players that will likely need good spring performances for Maryland to improve.
