Football Terps vs. NC State Thread

The football regular season ends today at 330PM ET as the Terps play host to NC State.  NC State can secure a spot in the ACC Championship Game with a win so they have all to play for. 

The Terps on the other hand are playing for things like:  Senior Day, Pride, and Bowl Position (although its likely the Military Bowl regardless of outcome).

I don't think it will matter much as the Fridge will have the team properly motivated.  I've always considered 8 regular season wins as the threshold for a successful season and the Terps are on the cusp of that.

NC State is a quality team (by ACC standards); but the Terps have proven that they can play with those teams. The coaches still play too conservatively and I don't put it past them to screw the players again with the timid play calling.

NC State has an athletic QB; but the Terps have been able to contain those types of guys all season.

In the final analysis, the outcome today is almost irrelevant because our bowl is virtually assured.  That may be a tad depressing; but I can't recall the last time I've been this optimistic about the future of the program.  Danny O'Brien has the potential to be the best Terp QB since Shaun Hill was hanging around College Park.  Who could have imagined that back in August?

Terps to Play Elon College Tonight

Happy Thanksgiving folks.  I'm back in the Free State for a couple of days; but unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to Comcast tonight for the epic Elon battle.  These cupcake games are important for building the confidence of our bench players.  In particular; I'd like to see Weijs and Padgett play a little more.  Ne [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. Delaware State Thread

Threads, threads, and more threads. I still haven't properly digested the weekend that wasn't; but there is no rest for the weary.  The Terps are facing perennial MEAC doormat, Delaware State tonight.  We should win by 30, maybe more.  We aren't going to learn anything about this team until the Penn State game next week, so [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. Florida State Thread

After the heartbreaks in New York, it is now up to the football team to redeem the week for Maryland.  It won't be easy.  Florida State is as good as it gets in the ACC this year and the young Terps will have their hands full. Many seem to think that Maryland is headed to the Military unless the Terps make it to the ACC Championship g [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. Illinois Thread

There is much to dissect from last night's loss to Pitt; but given the time crunch, I'm throwing up a thread for the Illinois game since it is starting in less than 2 hours. Illinois lost in overtime last night to Texas.  Both teams looked good and Illinois will certainly be looking to leave NYC with a split.  The Illini have an exper [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. Pitt Thread

Tonight the Terps are big underdogs. Pitt has experienced guards and they have a big interior presence. The Terps are still learning about what kind of team they are.  I think the key will be for them to get off to a strong start.  If Pitt runs out to a big lead, we may not see them again. The Terps need to hang with Pitt for the f [...] Read More »

Season Early-view Part II

Since the season has already started; it would be silly for me to call this a "preview", so I am going with "early-view" instead. We've played three games and already there is a lot that we have learned. 1.  Backcourt minutes will be hard to come by.  Our freshman guards will be a force to contend with all yea [...] Read More »

Terps vs. Maine Thread and UVA Recap

There is no rest for the weary Terps blogger these days.  The football team delivers an inspiring (yes, I said inspiring) win today against rival UVA and tomorrow, the Terps basketball team has a final "tune up" before heading to NYC for some big tests at the end of the week. Maine returns 11 players from last year's squad and is [...] Read More »

Terps vs. UVA Thread

It's moving day for the football team.  A victory in Charlottesville means the Terps are headed towards the top tier of the ACC and some exciting games to close out the season. A loss and it's back to the pack and a likely 6-6 finish.  UVA is eminently beatable.  Yes, the beat Miami with Jacory Harris; but the Terps should have d [...] Read More »

A Star Is Born

Pe'Shon Howard, welcome to Maryland!  In his second game as a collegian,  Howard hit the game winning shot to beat a veteran College of Charleston team.  Players will go their entire careers without hitting a game winner and Howard drained one in his second career game.  He was the best guard on the court. The kid is clutch.& [...] Read More »
