Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan

After an absence of lord knows how many years, I will be attending a Maryland football game tomorrow. That's right, I'm headed to the Big House to see which of these two teams is the least mediocre.  The winner will be declared the best-worst team in the Big Ten.  Can you feel the excitement?

In all seriousness, the Terps have a chance to cap off an unusual feat: road wins at Michigan and Penn State in the same season.  Granted, both teams are having historically awful seasons, but it'd be a noteworthy accomplishment during Maryland's inaugural season in the B1G.

As for the game, CJ Brown is still the QB so that means the offense will sputter and we'll see a lot of one-hoppers to the receivers.  Yet, the Terps should be in the game throughout if not comfortably ahead.  The Wolverines are awful.  The crowd will be tempted to root against Michigan in the hopes that it will hasten Brady Hoke's departure.

Could anything be better than watching two average teams in cold rain?

Maryland vs Fordham

Maryland tips off its third game tonight at 730ET.  It's hard not to be encouraged from the first two games.  The Terps didn't beat anyone by 30+ points last year and already, we have two 30+ point wins.  Fordham is a step up but it should still be a blow out win.  A solid performance, and we'll all be feeling good heading into next week's tour [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Central Connecticut State

The Terps kicked off the season with a resounding win.  The victory against Wagner represented the largest margin of victory since....wait for it....2010.  Yep, that's right.  It's the largest margin of victory of the Turgeon era.  Before we start booking our travel for March, we need to see a little more. Dez Wells, despite the ankle scare, lo [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State

The Terps welcome Sparty to the friendly confines of Byrd Stadium this evening.  Both teams are bowl eligible although the respective national profiles are quite different.  Michigan State was in the national championship discussion up until last weekend, while our Terps have been on the cusp of relevance all year. The quest for relevance is in [...] Read More »

Basketball Tip-Off: Maryland vs Wagner

The Maryland Men's Basketbal season begins in earnest tonight against Wagner.  My feeling as we begin the season are not particularly strong.  This team has many question marks and all of them need to be answered in the affirmative if Maryland is going to have a good year. The biggest ones are: 1.  Is Melo Trimble able to lead the offense?  Ear [...] Read More »

We Beat Penn State And Played A Basketball Game Yesterday

2-35-1 never felt so good, huh?  We all know that Penn State is turrible but yesterday the Terps did something that had never happened before.  They won a football game in State College, PA.  I felt like my old self watching this game.  I was yelling at the TV, pacing back and forth.  All the old hatreds for Penn State came flowing back.  I rem [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Penn State

Maryland hasn't beaten Penn State since the early sixties.  The Terps record against the Nittany Lions all-time 1-35-1.  Maryland has never won in Happy Valley.  It's an awful history.  One that can't be wiped clean with a victory today, but a win today will certainly feel like a new start. Penn State is not good.  Maryland might not be much bet [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Wisconsin

By all accounts, Maryland has no chance tomorrow.  The Terps have never been to Camp Randall Stadium where the Badgers enjoy a formidable home field advantage.  What's more, Wisconsin is huge upfront and possesses the second-best running attack in the nation. Maryland is a bit under-sized in the trenches and this looks like a classic mismatch.  [...] Read More »

Maryland v Iowa

I'm having trouble with my publishing tool but I want to get this thread up before the game. In short, we can beat Iowa and Iowa can beat us.  I expect a close game.  A win and Maryland is likely bowl bound. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Ohio State

What a sports weekend this is shaping up to be in Baltimore/DC! The Orioles and Nationals are in the playoffs.  The Ravens are playing the old Baltimore franchise, the Colts, there is a football team in Landover MD, and our beloved Terps play Ohio State. The good folks at Buckeye Battle Cry asked me to participate in a blogger exchange.  These g [...] Read More »
