Terps v Clemson Game Thread

In my mind, today’s game can only be defined in one way. Win or lose,  if the Terps play well; they will remain relevant in the eyes of fans and alumni.  A blowout or demoralizing loss and it is on to basketball season for the faithful.  Terp fans have always been a fickle bunch; but the Football team’s bandwagon is poised for a mass exodus.

I sincerely hope it doesn’t happen.  Historically, we’ve played well in Death Valley.  I just have little faith in the coaching staff and I think that Clemson’s talent will make it impossible to hide James Franklin’s incompetence.

Clemson has played a tough schedule and their record demonstrates that they are still learning how to win.  Maryland could surprise. At the very least, I expect the Terps to start better than they did against West Virginia.  That was an embarrassment.  A repeat performance would set the program back significantly.

In the end, we should hope to be close heading into the 4th quarter and hope to get lucky down the stretch.  A win and we all get to care about football for the rest of the season.

Terps Escape Duke 21-16; Suckiness Confirmed

"We're not the number of fingers I'm holding up!"      Image by Getty Images via @daylifeSo, who had the under tonight?  Thought so.  Jeez, am I glad I don't bet on sports anymore.  How the Terps offense only mustered 14 points against that defense (7 points came on a Punt Return) is a mystery.  Elon College scored more points against Duke than the [...] Read More »

Duke Football.

The FIU Aftermath

The most important thing is a victory. The kids worked their butts off, played hurt, and earned a victory over a decent team. I want to take nothing away from them. I, for one, am proud of how hard they play and have played this year. I just think they can be better and it's up to the coaching staff to put them in better positions to succeed. [...] Read More »

West Virginia Recap - They Were Who We Thought They Were

James Franklin and Ralph Friedgen are geniuses.  Here was the game plan they devised late Friday night:OK, we'll let the Mountaineers get out to a 28-point lead by looking listless on defense and totally inept on offense.  Then, just when West Virginia lets its guard down; we'll remember that we have one of the best receivers in the ACC on our team [...] Read More »
