Turtle-Soup.com RSS Feed http://www.turtle-soup.com/ This is the website syndication feed for the Turtle-Soup.com Maryland vs North Carolina A&T There are basically two perspectives to have coming out of Maryland’s first two games: This team can’t shoot and it’s going to be a long year. This team is going to be good once they start hitting from outside. Two games in, I am bending towards to optimism but the last few season indicate that they aren’t going to be a great shooting team just better than they are showing us right now.  What should be exciting is that defensive intensity and the ability to have two true p... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4615/2018/11/11/maryland-vs-north-carolina-at/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-north-carolina-at Turtle-Soup.com 11/11/2018 10:14:09 PM Double Thread: Maryland vs XXXX (BB) and Maryland vs. Indiana (FB) In basketball, the Terps opened their season this week in less than resounding fashion eking out a 6-point win against minnow Delaware. The Terps had a 20 point lead at halftime but things went off the rails when Bruno got into foul trouble. Clearly, that's going to be a concern all year. Bruno is a player with no replacement and the Terps quickly became beatable on the interior without him. Sure the horrid shooting hurt as well (another concern we'll have all year), but the lack of frontcourt d... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4614/2018/11/09/double-thread-maryland-vs-xxxx-bb-and-maryland-vs-indiana-fb/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=double-thread-maryland-vs-xxxx-bb-and-maryland-vs-indiana-fb Turtle-Soup.com 11/9/2018 12:22:43 PM Basketball Opener: Maryland vs Delaware It’s basketball season! It’s finally year and boy do we need a distraction from football. Turgeon has another young but talented team. The veterans are where you want them to be: PG and C. The goal as always is to make a run in the Tournament but Turgeon needs to prove he get into the Dance with regularity first.  He hasn’t been able to do it without Melo Trimble and it’s hard not to doubt this year’s squad given its youth. If they fail to earn a bid, then the groun... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4613/2018/11/06/basketball-opener-maryland-vs-delaware/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=basketball-opener-maryland-vs-delaware Turtle-Soup.com 11/6/2018 6:10:07 PM Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State This week has been awful. Our university has become a topic of national discussion in the worst possible way and its leaders have besmirched the great reputation of our beloved school. DJ Durkin’s dismissal has opened up the debate over a new coach and its hard to imagine that the Terps will bring in a big name. The athletic department is in disarray and the schools we compete with for recruits have the “why would you go there?” speech ready to go. And of course, the Terps play a footb... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4612/2018/11/02/gameday-maryland-vs-michigan-state/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=gameday-maryland-vs-michigan-state Turtle-Soup.com 11/2/2018 9:07:35 PM DJ Durkin To Return As Head Coach DJ is returning to the program. I’m speechless and frankly don’t understand the decision. The Report’s findings indicated that there was “ongoing dysfunction” in the athletic department and the training staff’s mistakes contributed to Jordan McNair’s death. I can’t fathom how those findings square with Damon Evans and DJ Durkin keeping their jobs. It’s not hard to see that there was concern that firing Durkin and Evans would open the school up to further lawsuits by McNair’s family for wron... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4611/2018/10/30/dj-durkin-to-return-as-head-coach/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=dj-durkin-to-return-as-head-coach Turtle-Soup.com 10/30/2018 6:22:08 PM Gameday: Maryland vs Illinois The Terps are still playing games. This despite the fact that they have no passing game whatsoever. A win tomorrow and Maryland will be one game away from bowl eligibility. That’s hard to fathom given how one-dimensional they but it is a fact nonetheless. Illinois is truly dreadful and can’t really beat anyone outside of Rutgers in the Big Ten. From my perspective, I’d just like to see a game where the offense makes some progress in the passing game. Kasim Hill has shown us nothing this year ... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4610/2018/10/26/gameday-maryland-vs-illinois/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=gameday-maryland-vs-illinois Turtle-Soup.com 10/26/2018 9:16:40 PM Gameday: Maryland vs Iowa He we are. This is a game that can define Maryland’s season. Iowa is a good football and Maryland is flying a long way to play them but the Hawkeyes are not an elite team. Over the last few years, that hasn’t mattered much. As we now know, any good team that it is not coached by Tom Herman generally just rolls through the Terps. Maybe today will be different but that will only be the case if Maryland figures out how to throw the ball down the field. The Terps are one of the best rushing tea... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4609/2018/10/19/gameday-maryland-vs-iowa/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=gameday-maryland-vs-iowa Turtle-Soup.com 10/19/2018 11:27:27 PM Gameday: Maryland vs Rutgers the eyes of the college football world will be on College Park this afternoon for this epic tilt.  If only. maryland limps into homecoming with the sixth worst passing attack in FBS. Today is a chance to right the ship and position ourselves for a run at terrible bowl game. Can you feel the excitement? http://www.turtle-soup.com/4608/2018/10/13/gameday-maryland-vs-rutgers/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=gameday-maryland-vs-rutgers Turtle-Soup.com 10/13/2018 11:32:45 AM Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan Well it’s that time of year. Maryland has racked up some early season wins and one of the Big Ten elite teams shows up on the schedule. It’s hard to imagine Maryland going to Ann Arbor and beating Michigan. Granted, that’s happened before (I was there), but this Michigan team is much better than that one. In reality, it would be great to see Maryland compete on the road against a good team like Michigan. Keep it close. Give us a reason to believe that the Terps are a team that can go toe to... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4607/2018/10/05/gameday-maryland-vs-michigan/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=gameday-maryland-vs-michigan Turtle-Soup.com 10/5/2018 10:15:06 PM Gameday: Maryland vs Minnesota How was that for crashing down to earth moment? Getting blown out at home to Temple hammered home the point that this team is far away from being ready to compete in the Big Ten. Temple is not a good team. The loss is pathetic and inexcusable. Now Minnesota comes to town and maybe Maryland beats them. But does it really matter? Does anyone believe that this team is capable of going to Michigan and winning? Or competing with Ohio State? Of course not. It is hard to keep the faith when f... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4606/2018/09/21/gameday-maryland-vs-minnesota-/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=gameday-maryland-vs-minnesota- Turtle-Soup.com 9/21/2018 9:16:55 PM
