Update: The Confidential does want to thank all of the folks that provided comments–both here and on Testudo Times.  It is a tribute to Maryland sports fans that there was so much interest in this issue. 

Having reviewed all of the comments and criticism, the Confidential is sticking with Gary Williams, Boomer Esiason, and Curley Byrd.  While Randy White had a fine career, his notoriety lags behind Esiason overall and also trails the final two competitors for the 4th spot.  As for the 4th and final spot… it came down to Len Bias vs. Juan Dixon.  Bias was the better player and the better athlete.  But Dixon led Maryland to a national championship.  Maryland fans got to savor a national championship because of Juan Dixon’s leadership and skills.  He gets the final spot.

The final verdict: Gary Williams, Boomer Esiason, Curley Byrd, and Juan Dixon.
