The blonde has been described as a sweetheart and has been praised for her ability to remain stoic after that dreadful 2011 first season at Maryland –in which her hubby was roasted by local columnist after losing eight straight games. She’s said about her husband
“I almost think sometimes people see him as some sort of a cartoon figure, like he doesn’t have a real life, like he’s been conjured up, like he’s this machine or something,” “I think they portrayed him as some dictator. Yeah, he has rules. With 85 guys, you’d better have rules. Is he unreasonable? No. I think he’s fair. Maybe if it’s not what you’re used to, you see it as unreasonable.”
