You can likely cross Michigan off the list of teams that will welcome newcomer Maryland with open arms to the Big Ten this season.  In an interview with Washington, D.C’s 106.7 The Fan Wednesday afternoon, Terrapins’ coach Randy Edsall made some not-so-flattering comments about the Wolverines’ football stadium, dubbed by most as “The Big House.”  Sure, it’s large, Edsall said, but it’s not too loud.   Randy Edsall on Michigan Stadium: “It’s big, but it’s not loud.” — 106.7 The Fan (@1067thefandc) August 27, 2014 Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post‘s DC Sports Bog transcribed the full quote: “You know, I had the opportunity to play in the Big House when I was in Connecticut coaching there, and when they had just finished the expansion [to] 113,000,” Edsall said. “Yeah, it’s big, but it’s not loud. I mean, that’s one thing with Michigan, it’s not a loud crowd. And I think the biggest thing with that situation, you go in there and they understand that, ‘Hey, the field is the same size here at Byrd as it is there.’ “And the biggest thing you’ve got to do is go out and out and get on top of them and try to take the crowd out of the game,” Edsall went on. “But we’ve played at Clemson and Florida State and those places, and Clemson is as loud as it gets. So I don’t think our guys will be intimidated by that. It’s just kind of the history of the Big House and Ohio [State's] stadium and Penn State. But again, just go focus on what you’ve got to focus on, and that’s playing against the guy you’re lined up next to.” While this comment probably won’t please Wolverine fans, many outside the Michigan program would agree with Edsall. Michigan Stadium’s atmosphere for the occasional night game is as good as any in the country, but it’s been known to be a little dull during day and afternoon contests.  Maryland travels to Michigan Nov. 22.  [DC Sports Bog]
