Maryland vs West Virginia

9/13/2014 8:59:08 AM Nothing says Big Ten vs Big 12 like Maryland vs. West Virginia, eh?  Seriously, this venerable rivalry endures despite all the conference shifting underneath our feet and that is something to be happy about.

As for the game, the Mountaineers are always a bellwether for our Terps.  A win and we are a good team.  A loss and we are average.  Today will be no different. West Virginia sports the excellently named Clint Trickett at QB.  The Terps destroyed him last season but he is a year older and better.  WVU held their own against Alabama so this likely won't be a cakewalk.

The Terps need to play much better offensively than what we saw in South Florida.  CJ Brown has looked terrible thus far.  He's turned the ball over, his accuracy (never a strong suit) has been particularly bad.  Today, he needs to step up. I don't need a superstar, just a guy who can limit mistakes and get the ball in the hands of playmakers.

A win today and I think the Terps will be 5-0 headed into the Ohio State game.  Wouldn't that be something?
