Ralph Friedgen, the reigning ACC Coach of the Year and a man who never let the Maryland Terrapins get blown out by Temple, said some mighty candid things about his previous employer. He (probably?) joked that he's burned his Maryland diploma and says he's riding with a Georgia Tech flag now, perhaps as a tribute to the school that hired him twice and never fired him.
Normally, there's no big surprise in a fired coach not liking his former employer, but Friedgen wasn't just an employee of the University of Maryland: he was a graduate. Friedgen played for the team, took classes in College Park, dedicated more than a decade of his life to serving it. I know it hurts to be let go, but I was one of the ones who thought (and hoped) he'd have too much support for the kids he recruited and coached, let alone the university from which he graduated, to turn his back on them. [And seriously, that's more than "turning his back." That's, like, sacrilege, or something. I'm serious.]
And if I may sum up the Georgia Tech fan's reaction:
Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee.
