They Deserved Better

11/21/2009 1:11:22 PM I know we've moved on to hoops, but I have to take a second to congratulate the Terps football squad on a tremendous effort against FSU on Saturday.

Of course, they found a way to lose, but they showed a lot of heart and a lot of effort in nearly knocking off the Seminoles on the road. They ran the ball like we thought they were going to early in the season and if not for some "playing not to lose" play calls in the final 3 minutes, they might have pulled it off.

They made just enough mistakes to lose it, but I saw a lot of progress and hope this can be a start of a more confident team going into next season.

I realize I'm going to get the same old "we shouldn't be happy with a close loss" stuff, but just look at reality. This is who we are and after a season where the team looked like a bunch of bums, I can look at this game and see some light at the end of the tunnel. Jamarr Robinson looked really good (his deep ball accuracy will hopefully improve next season), as did Davin Meggett and the receivers actually caught the ball.

It would have been so much nicer if they could have pulled it off, but I am encouraged. Okay, now back to hoops.
