Maryland is ready for that moment when fans want to rush the field and tear down the goalposts.

Whenever that moment might come.

According to the Washington Post, the university installed new hydraulic goalposts to stop all those rowdy fans from tearing down the goalposts during all those big wins — like Saturday's 7-6 triumph against William and Mary.

If only they had had them during any of the two wins the Terrapins managed last season.

I guess now that the program is struggling, any win might cause all 10,000 fans that attend Maryland games to feel the need to bring the goalposts down. Or perhaps the school is worried about fans just tearing the goalposts down in frustration.

In either case, the Terrapins probably should have saved that money for Randy Edsall's buyout.
