#2 Maryland vs Illinois State (Cancun Day 1)

Coming off last week's less-than-stellar performance against Rider, Maryland should be wary of Illinois State.  Not only are ranked teams dropping like flies, but the Redbirds are in the MVC conference and those teams are giant killers.  Northern Iowa just beat UNC last week.

Our Terps are still learning to play together as a team as evidenced by the porous defense we've seen.  Rider and Georgetown both shot over 45% from the field.  For a team as athletic and big as the Terps that's not acceptable.  It's my view that the defense is the last thing to come together as a team is learning how to play with each other.  Tonight, let's look for improvement defensively.

Oddly, free throw shooting has also been a problem but I imagine that will come together as well. 

Georgetown played Duke tight this week so methinks that win will prove to be a good one as the season unfolds.

Tonight's games is on the CBS Sports Network.

Football Gameday: Maryland vs Indiana (And Some Rider Analysis)

The Terps welcome a team of equal ability to College Park today. Let's see if they can get off the schnide and actually win a game.  Indiana has been competitive but there won't be a talent gap on the field like we've seen in every other Big Ten game this season.  This is a game that Maryland can actually win. Now, given the above, we all know t [...] Read More »

#3 Maryland vs Rider

After the heart stopping finish against Georgetwon, Terps fans can relax a little tonight as Rider cruises into town.  Rider is a minnow and the Terps should win by 30+ points. Of greater concern to me and perhaps other Terp fans is what we saw on Tuesday night.  I saw a team with 3 guys 6'11 or taller who got outrebounded and gave up a ton of o [...] Read More »

#3 Maryland vs Georgetown

The Battle for DC. Maryland should be playing Georgetown EVERY YEAR but since we don't, tonight's game is a rare treat on the schedule.  The reasons why this is not an annual game are varied and confusing, but hopefully the paralyzing ice that has frozen this rivalry will thaw with tonight's contest. Maryland is coming off a convincing but ha [...] Read More »

Football Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State

Our football Terps continue to play out the string today when they travel to East Lansing to take on Michigan State. The Spartans have looked shaky of late but there is no way the Terps leave Spartan Stadium with anything but a loss. I don't care that Maryland has shown life recently. They may hang around for a bit, but they can't win. In other [...] Read More »

Season Opener: # 3Maryland vs Mt. St. Mary's

Tonight is the dawn of the Stone Age at the University of Maryland. Diamond Stone and his highly touted teammates start their journey tonight against minnow, Mt. St. Mary's. There is so much excitement surrounding this team it's hard to put it all in perspective.  The game itself will undoubtedly be a blowout so the real drama is going to be [...] Read More »

Football is bad, Wiley might be done for year, bleak outlook in CP

Just kidding. Yeah, the football team is bad, and yeah Dion Wiley is done for the season. But that's about as bad as things get in College Park right now. Basketball season officially kicks off Friday night for our Terps, and the football team has put together performances that range from semi-competitive to actually competitive.  I said in my l [...] Read More »

Dion Wiley Tears Meniscus - Could Miss Season

The headline says it all. Wiley needs surgery although it is known how much time he will miss, it could cost him the season. Obviously, this is devastating news for Wiley and concerning for Maryland. Wiley figured to garner something like 20 minutes per game this year and that will need to be replaced for the foreseeable future.  I'd expect Nickens [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Wisconsin

Maryland has looked moderately better the last two weeks but they are still in search of a morale boosting win. This is not the Wisconsin team of old but they are still more talented at just about every position than the Terps. It is homecoming and the Terps are desperate. These players want to show the rest of college football that the problems wi [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs #10 Iowa

The Terps have a chance to knock off a top 10 team today as they visit Iowa. While Iowa is likely one of the worst top 10 teams in recent memory, there is little doubt that they will beat Maryland. That is not to say the Terps didn't look much better last week in the 31-30 loss to Penn State. They did. So much so in fact, that it leads one to th [...] Read More »
