Maryland vs Towson

The Kasim Hill era begins in earnest tomorrow when the Terps take on the Towson Tigers in College Park.

Last week's thrilling and improbable win was tempered by the devastating news that Tyrone Pigrome was lost for the year with a knee injury.

Losing Piggy is yet another big injury that this program has endured over the last few years. Aside from the fact that your heart goes out to Piggy. He was outstanding on the field and seemed primed to have a breakout season. Now his season is over and Kasim Hill has the reigns.

Regardless of whether Hill serves as an able replacement, it makes DJ Durkin's job even tougher. Having a true freshman negotiate through one of the best conferences in college football is a Herculean task. 

This year's schedule is brutal. Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State all loom on the calendar. Michigan State and Minnesota are there too. If Kasim Hill can lead the Terps to a winning record with that slate, we've got a future star on our hands.

In the meantime, the Towson Tigers will be a low risk tune up for our young QB.

Maryland vs #23 Texas

Maryland open up the football season tomorrow against Texas for the first time since 1978. Texas is 3-0 all time against the Terps outscoring them 102-0 in the process. Yep, we've never scored a point against the Longhorns. At the very least, that should change tomorrow. Whether or not the Terps can run with the high powered Texas offense is a [...] Read More »

What's After Melo?

Melo is officially gone. Where does that leave our Terps? Clearly the young nucleus of Jackson, Huerter, and Cowan will form the backbone of the team. The additions of Bruno Fernando up front and Morsell in the backcourt will bring needed toughness. It was hard watching teams like South Carolina and Gonzaga defend so tenaciously in the To [...] Read More »

NCAA Tourney Round 1: #6 Maryland vs. #11 Xavier

It's here folks. The Terps begin their Tournament journey this evening against Xavier. Both teams have struggled down the stretch so there is no momentum heading into the contest. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the Terps will not make a deep run if Justin Jackson doesn't get on track. The Terps were virtually unstoppable in January when J [...] Read More »

NCAA Tournament Preview

It's hard to argue that Maryland didn't get over-seeded on Sunday. While the record (24-8) may warrant a #6 seed; the Terps have limped home (4-6 over their last 10 games) with some really bad losses (@ Penn State, home to Iowa, Big Ten Quarters vs Northwestern). In terms of their Tournament chances, it all depends which team shows up. Will it b [...] Read More »

Big Ten Quarterfinals: #25 Maryland vs Northwestern

It has begun. The Big Ten Tourney has already provided us with its share of upsets. #1 seed Purdue is gone. The Terps have an opportunity in front of them. They take on a Northwestern that they dominated in Evanston last month. From there the path toughens but there are no teams in the conference that Maryland can't beat. Couple that [...] Read More »

Michigan State @ Maryland

The Terps righted the ship earlier this week with a convincing 20 point win at lowly Rutgers. Today, the Terps have the chance to consolidate their gains with a win over a mightier foe, Michigan State. The Spartans will be fighting for their Tournament chances but the Terps have much at stake too. Maryland needs to win in order to secure a dou [...] Read More »

Maryland @ Rutgers

Tomorrow's game against Rutgers is an absolute must win if Maryland is to avoid any bubble talk. To put it simply, the wheels have fallen off the bus in February. The Terps had a magnificent January (New Year's weekend vs Nebraska was the only blemish) and have followed it up losing 5 of 7 in February.  The problem is primarily defense. Y [...] Read More »

#24 Maryland vs Iowa

 Reeling. There is no other way to describe the Terps right now. Losers of 4 of their last 6, the Terps seem to be running out of steam. Maryland has had leads in the second half during three of the four losses. The issue is hard to pinpoint but it's easy to point to the fact that we start three freshman and they are currently playing the long [...] Read More »
