On Wednesday Maryland announced that it would be playing West Virginia (2013) and Virginia Tech (2014) in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium. Apparently those games aren't the only scheduling thoughts on the school's mind. While playing in a celebrity golf tournament for charity on Wednesday in Pennsylvania, head coach Randy Edsall told the York Dispatch that he'd like to see Maryland resume a series with Penn State in the future.

"I think it would be good for the region and for both programs," Edsall told the paper.

"Kevin Anderson, my athletic director, he and I have talked and that's something we want to do, but we're not going to play two for one (two games at Penn State for every one at Maryland). If they want to play us in a one for one and have an extended series, we would love to do that."

Penn State and Maryland are not strangers to one another on the football field, as they used to meet on a regular basis, with the last meeting coming in 1993. What happened after that? Well, Penn State joined the Big Ten, that's what.

The first meeting between the schools came in 1917, and over that 66-year span the two teams met 37 times. Now, if history is any indication, this is a series that Penn State would love to start again if it can find a place to fit Maryland in its schedule. In those 37 contests, Penn State went 35-1-1.

As for why Maryland would want to resume the series, maybe the Terps feel that they've got a 34-game win streak in them?

Obama wants to declare MARTIAL LAW, so he can flip the country into a communist country.  Edsall is nuts.

Penn St seems very popular with people wanting to play them these days. Temple may have to find another pay day pretty soon!
