Terps Hold On Against Virginia, 27-20

The Terps started brightly only to muddle through a weak 2nd and 3rd quarter; but they held on and play well in the 4th quarter for a huge ACC road win.  Maryland is firmly ensconced in sole possession of first place in the ACC standings.

Granted, we are in mid-October but at 4-2, I can actually see my way to an 8-4 record.  It's not as preposterous as it sounds.  The Terps host NC State at home next week for homecoming and if our defense continues to play like this, we'll be in that game until the end.  The Terps travel to BC and the host Georgia Tech in the following two weeks.  Those games are all winnable.  It's hard to imagine that we actually pull that off, but the path is there.

At 7-2, the Terps would be a national story at that point, but crazier things have happened.  Of course a cold dose of reality would loom with Clemson and FSU on the horizon.  The season would end at UNC and again, it's not crazy to think the Terps would have a chance in that game.  So as I said, the path to 8 wins is there.

Now as for the game, Stefon Diggs is awesome.  The defense is stout and Perry Hills is getting better every time out.  The running game is atrocious and that will likely be the thing that keeps us from 8 wins.  But let's not worry about that now.  Let's enjoy a 4-2 record we never thought was possible.

Maryland - UVA Gameday Thread

Despite all the bluster of the Duke - UNC rivalry; I've always believed that the ACC never really had rivalries in the same way other conferences do.  To me, every team is a rival.  I don't particularly want to beat Georgia Tech anymore than I want to beat Clemson.  However, if Maryland has a rival; its UVA.  Charlottesville [...] Read More »

Terps Edge Wake In Uninspiring Victory 19-14

A few quick observations: The Offensive Line is awful.  The routinely get blown up on the line of scrimmage on run plays and miss assignments on passing plays.  It's really ugly Maryland's defense is borderline elite.  Seriously.  Wake is a decimated team but they did nothing outside of the first play of the game.  If [...] Read More »

Wake Forest Beckons

This is a big sports weekend for anyone from Baltimore.  The Orioles will be playing in their first playoff game in 15 years.  While that in and of itself is notable; what's more interesting is how the Orioles got to this point.  At 93-69, the 2012 Orioles have turned in one of the best seasons the franchise has had in 30 years and t [...] Read More »

Maryland Just Got LeBroned By The Harrisons

Jesus, what the fuck was that? Why even pretend to include a school like Maryland in the decision process when all along you were planning on attending the NBA Lottery Factory?  I'm not even upset that they chose Kentucky, I'm just pissed that Maryland was led on like that.  Kentucky is an easy choice and the rationale obvious.  I [...] Read More »

Earl Badu Has Died

I can't get confirmation outside of Twitter; but it seems pretty clear that Earl Badu has passed away. For those who don't know, and honestly, how could you be reading this site if you don't; Badu was a beloved walkon who played on the Terps 2002 Championship team.  I'm not going to speculate on the cause of death; but 32 years of age is w [...] Read More »

West Virginia Game Thread

I am shortly boarding a plane for 8 hours and I'm not going to have time to do a full analysis of tomorrow's game.   Suffice it to say that the Terps will have their hands full with the 8th ranked team in the nation.  In particular, the Mountaineer offense will pose a stiff challenge.  The Terps defense has been relatively stout s [...] Read More »

UConn Thread

The Edsall Bowl.  There are only two states in the Union that care about this matchup tomorrow.  We just happen to go to school in one of them.  For the Terps, tomorrow's game represents the opportunity to get to an improbable 3-0.  In the Terps way is an offensively challenged UConn squad.  NC State barely escaped thei [...] Read More »

Sam Cassell Jr Likely Ineligible

I've been reading through everyone's comments in the previous thread and there's not much else to say.  Cassell seemed to be the kind of kid who basketball coursing through his veins and it would have been fun and satisfying to see him develop.  While not official, it's not looking good. The loss will be minimized, of course, if Dez We [...] Read More »
