Good for him. It's a great program for him to go to. It will give him some better exposure and he fits that style of offense much better. Sorry to see him leave Maryland though.
What an effing mess. I'm happy for the kid, who didn't deserve to have his career battered against the rocks like that. He'll have two good years at Wisconsin to get back on track. After seeing him play as a freshman I was convinced he'd be a first round NFL pick. That doesn't seem as likely, but hell, he's way ahead of where Flacco was at the same point in their careers, and with transferring.
I guess that fact that Russel Wilson, another ACC drop out, succeeded there made it appealing to Danny. Sounds like they have some injury issues at the QB spot and there is a decent chance he'll start in the fall. Happy for him.

It's crazy that just 2 seasons ago, Danny was ACC Offensive Freshman of the Year, the team won 9 games and Friedgen was ACC COY. Things really got bungled, wish he could have played out his career at MD, but can't blame him one bit for wanting to transfer. Hopefully he tears it up at Wisconsin and gets drafted very high.

I actually got one right. I knew him in the Pred state U jacket at yesterdays visit was bogus.

But I thought Vandy and Franklin were talking to him behind the scenes and it was a done deal he was going there?? I thought there was this huge plan in place to steal him away from UMD??

as has been rumored. I freakin hate it but I wish the kid the best.
Hope the Terps turn things around, losing to Duke in football was about the bottom of the barrel

MD has a top 50 recruiting class this year including 5 with 4 star status. Coach said they would start as freshman. There's no one left-lol.
According to ESPN.com, five of the top 18 players in the state are heading to Maryland, including a pair of SuperPrep All-Americans in offensive lineman Mike Madaras and running back Wes Brown, who were teammates at Good Counsel (Md.) High School.
"We were able to make some in roads in our prime recruiting areas of Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania," Edsall said. "We got into some areas and schools which we haven't been able to in a long time."
Maryland fulfilled a number of needs on both sides of the ball with running back, linebacker and defensive back the most represented positions.
