Maryland vs Jackson St

There are a lot of opinions about Saturday’s squeaker against Bucknell. The optimists will harp on the second half comeback, while the pessimists will focus on the listless first half.

Personally, I’m inclined to focus on the former. Yes the Terps started poorly but it was the fourth game in nine days, they were coming off a “big” win against Butler, and Bucknell is no pushover. They only lost by 12 at UNC and they shoot 40% for three.

Maryland got the wake up call and sparked the comeback the right way with defense. 

For me, the bigger concern was the last four minutes. The Terps were a mess down the stretch. They turned it over, couldn’t not execute the offense and played a little scared. Bucknell went stone cold and that enabled them to hang on. The last 30 seconds are another story but the game was really over at that point.

Tonight they welcome Jackson State who won’t put up the same kind of fight. It’s the final tune up before they head to Florida for that holiday mini tournament. Their likely opponent in the championship game is the Jamie Dixon led TCU Horned Frogs. Yes, the rare Frogs vs Turtles tilt. TCU has a top 30 Pomeroy Rating so that is shaping up to be a decent game assuming we get past St. Bonny that is.

Maryland vs. Michigan

Michigan comes to town for what is likely to be a lopsided contest this afternoon. Michigan is having an off year but the Terps have been decimated by injury and the defense can’t stop anyone right now. Hopefully, we’ll put a decent showing at home but even the most jingoistic fan can’t expect the Terps to pull out a win today. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Indiana

I guess the Terps are about as good as they could possibly be with a decimated quarterbacking corps but this is where we are. A feisty Indiana squad is in the docket and if the Northwestern game is an indicator, the Terps will be lucky to win. The defense is not quite good enough to make up for the offense’s deficiencies. That’s a recipe [...] Read More »

Don’t have time for long post today as been in the hospital welcoming the starting backcourt for 2035 Maryland Terrapins. Yes, I’m the proud papa of twin boys! Anyway, the Terps are going to get crushed in Madison. I’m glad I’ll be occupied with more important things. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Northwestern

Time to put last week’s game out of our mind and focus on the future. Maryland and Ohio State have different objectives this season and that’s even more true when the Terps are on their fourth QB of the season. Six wins is achievable but to get there, the Terps must dispatch Northwestern. The Wildcats are having a poor season and the Terps hav [...] Read More »

Maryland vs #10 Ohio State

Last week’s thrilling and unexpected victory underscored for Terp fans how great DJ Durkin and his staff have been. Not only have the recruited players that can compete, they’ve built an identity and have shown that they can punch above their weight. We are lucky to have this staff and let’s hope we can hold on to them for a long time. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Minnesota

With Kasim Hill's season ending injury, the air came out of The balloon for the Maryland Terrapins. Expectations of a fun and exciting season quickly disintegrated and fans are left wondering "how could this happen to us again". It's a question worth asking but there are no answers. Sometimes you are unlucky. Sometime you are really unluc [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UCF

The Texas Longhorns lost to the #4 USC Trojans last week and the winner was Maryland. After Maryland beat Texas, the popular narrative was that Texas was garbage and Maryland was that much better but now that Texas proved they can't take a top 5 team to overtime, Maryland suddenly looks formidable. The Terps checked in at #28 in the AP p [...] Read More »
