Terps Step Out Of ACC For Big Opportunity Against Temple

 I just commuted home from Mexico and landed in a Chicago snowstorm during rush hour.  I'm spent.

The good news is that I don't have to play tomorrow at 11am. Our Terps however, do and will.  The Owls present a stiff test as they always seem to.  Already, Temple has knocked off Duke this year, so the Terps are going to be big road underdogs. 

To have a chance, the Terps will need to win on defensive end.  Good things happen when the Terps play superior defense (see Georgia Tech).  Bad things happen when they don't (see Florida State).

It's a longshot, but the Terps have the firepower to win this game.  They just need to put all of the pieces together.  So far, that hasn't happened this year.  Tomorrow morning would be a great time to see it.

Terps Hit The Road - FSU Thread

Come on! We only had 2 days to enjoy the latest win?  I wish we could have enjoyed it a bit longer, but the schedule is the schedule. Tonight is a big one.  Clearly not a must-win, but a win would definitely open some eyes.  It could go one of two ways.  Either FSU is flying high off of their whooping of UNC and thinking t [...] Read More »

Mosley, Defense Beat Jackets

This game could not have started any uglier... but in the end, heck, I wouldn't have kicked it out of my bed! Sean Mosley has gotten a lot of flack on this site and others over the years, but everyone who watched their win over Georgia Tech can say just what Jackets coach Brian Gregory said after this one:  "He flat out won them that g [...] Read More »

Terps Host Georgia Tech To Gain Leg Up In Topsy Turvy ACC

The ACC this year is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.  No one can figure it out.  UNC lost to FSU today by 33 points.  33 points!  Who cares if it was in Tallahassee?  Sure, the Seminoles were preseason #3 in the conference but no one expected that. Georgia Tech dominated NC State on the road this week.&n [...] Read More »

Jeckyll and Hyde Terps Hold Off Wake Forest

I'm convinced that these kids are going to give us all heart attacks before the season is through. At least we can't say that we haven't been warned.  Ever since the Terps have gotten to full strength, a familiar pattern has been established.  Often (not always), the Terps run out to a big lead in the first half (see Cornell and Wake), on [...] Read More »

Wake Forest Beckons

The ACC schedule is wonderful in that it offers near immediate opportunities to bounce back from defeats.  Yet, for those teams with issues that have not been fixed; losses can stack up in a hurry. The Terps hung in but never really gave me the sense that they could be NC State on Sunday.  Wake should not present that same problem but [...] Read More »

Maryland Comes Up Short Against NC State

For large stretches of the game, the Terps played a disjointed, frustrating style.  Stoglin was his usual beast self and kept us in the game.  It was only at the end of the game did he start jacking up shots outside of the offense.  Padgett showed flashes, Len did too but there just was not enough firepower coming from inside [...] Read More »

Maryland Opens ACC At NC State

The Terps and Wolfpack square off in the final game of the ACC's opening weekend.  Thus far, it was a weekend filled with surprises.  Clemson upended FSU by 20.  Wake squeaked by Virginia Tech while GT and Miami gave Duke and Virginia all they could handle. Before yesterday's game, the conventional wisdom had Clemson, GT, and Wake [...] Read More »

Terps v Cornell Preview and Thread

The Terps final tune-up before the ACC season gets underway tomorrow night when Cornell comes to town.  The Ivy League has given the ACC trouble this season.  Harvard's beaten BC (then again, who hasn't beaten BC?) and Florida State now sports two losses to Ivy League squads. Both Harvard and Princeton have downed the 'Noles this season. [...] Read More »
