FIU Preview and Game Thread

2-2 or 3-1?  That is the question.

The answer will determine if the rest of the Terps football season is even worth following.  Am I being dramatic?  Yes.  Is a 2-2 record that includes a home loss to Florida International University an unadulterated disaster?  Yes.  Can it happen?  Maybe. The Terps need to come to Byrd ready to play tomorrow.  FIU is a good team that had Texas A&M against the ropes last weekend. Nevertheless, this game will be won or lost on the Maryland sideline.  If the Terps execute and avoid stupid mistakes, they should win easily.  If they begin the game with the same level preparedness as last week; we lose. I'd like to see lots of Da'Rel Scott and Torrey Smith.  Those are the best skill players and we need to get them the ball early and often.  Reps now will help after the ACC season starts. On a side note, there are some big basketball recruits making their official visit this weekend (Messrs Faust and O'Bryant).  Committals from one or both would be cause for celebration as each is ranked in the top 25 nationally.  Git er done, Gary. The football game is on ESPN3. Enjoy folks.
