Maryland - Towson Thread

Can you feel the excitement leading up to tomorrow's titillating Maryland - Towson game?  Me either.

Who cares about these kind of games anyway.  All major conference schools do it and aside from the odd Appalachian State v Michigan or Middle Tennessee State v Maryland (twice!); these games are boring and offer no upside for the big school. A win is expected, a loss is a catastrophe. 

Now Towson is actually decent for a 1-AA school (or whatever it is called now).  They trounced Villanova which is usually a powerhouse 1-AA.  Regardless, Maryland SHOULD feast on the inferior quality.

As fans, the only thing we should look to is the performance of the offense now that Danny O'Brien has his two favorite targets back.  He needs to start clicking again and moving the ball down the field.

As for the other side of the ball, the defense is brutally bad and regardless of tomorrow's performance, will remain so.

Next week, Clemson comes to town and the Terps will have an opportunity to turn their season around. Until then, they need to work on getting their act together.

Temple Rolls Over Terps

It must have felt like old times for Randy Edsall this afternoon.  He got hammered by a non-BCS school.  When UConn entered Division I (or FBS or whatever 3 letter acronym they go by now); drubbings by D-I also-rans were routine.  Unfortunately for Edsall and Terp fans these kind of performances are totally unacceptable.  Th [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Temple Thread

The Terps host a quality Temple team today.  Temple gave Penn State all it could handle last week before falling short, so expect the Terps to be grinding all day. Still, a loss would be disastrous.  The Terps whiffed on a massive opportunity last weekend against WVU and a loss today will foul all of the high hopes fans had going into [...] Read More »

Christian Sanders Commits To Stanford

The headline says it all.  The Terps have lost 3-star combo guard to Stanford.  Sanders is a sharpshooter, so in my humble opinion, he's an asset on any team.  The Terps have not exactly been "lights out" from beyond the arc, so it hurts to lose a kid who can shoot well. On the flip side, Maryland is loaded at guard and [...] Read More »

West Virginia Recap and Meet Charles Mitchell

Yesterday's loss was brutal.  It was brutal because the Terps valiantly fought back from 24 points down only to have our best player throw an AWFUL pick to end the game. Sure, there are plenty of positives to take away from the game (defense played well in the second half, Terps ran the ball well and moved down the field with ease of the l [...] Read More »

Maryland vs West Virginia Game Thread

The Terps head into to today's pivotal tilt with the Mountaineers a bit underhanded.  As has been widely reported; the Terps will be without their top two wideouts.  Messrs. Tyler and McCree have been suspended indefinitely. Will the offense click with the same precision?  It had better if the Terps are to beat the #18 team in the [...] Read More »

DJ Adams Reinstated; WRs Tyler And McCree Out Indefinitely

DJ Adams was reinstated from his one game suspension today.  Therein lies the good news.  The bad news is that WRs Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree have been suspended indefinitely from the team. Tyler and McCree totaled 13 catches against Miami (6 and 7 respectively) so this is a major loss.  Tyler is charged with assaulting a pol [...] Read More »

Remaining Class of 2012 Wish List

With Jake Layman on board and Jerami Grant officially out of the picture; the Terps recruiting class of 2012 is starting to come into focus. Maryland's remaining wish list is a short one: 1A - Mitch McGary. 1B - Amile Jefferson McGary and Jefferson would elevate the Terps into the stratosphere.  Each possess a unique skill set that wou [...] Read More »

Jerami Grant Decision Looming; Not Looking Good For MD

It's looking like Jerami Grant will announce his college choice tomorrow and it won't be Maryland or Rutgers.  It seems that Syracuse will be the pick.  Turtle Soup sources (read: DBR) are quoting sources from NY that are claiming the Orangemen will get Grant's services.  How's that for a rumor from a rumor.  Well, I'm going [...] Read More »

Terps Fight Through Mistakes To Beat Canes 32-24

They gutted out a huge opening season victory in the face of a driving rainstorm in front of a sellout crowd on national television.  Take that sentence in.  Savor it. Sure, the Terps performance against Miami left much to be desired; but a win is a win.  Much will be made of the following: 1.  Miami was missing 8 of its be [...] Read More »
