#21 Maryland vs #7 Virginia

Maryland is ranked for the first time in something like 4 1/2 years and we get to celebrate by hosting #7 UVA in our first tangle with an ACC school as a member of the Big Ten.  It's an exciting way to play this year's first meaningful game at the Xfinity Center.

The Terps will be without Dez Wells which is a huge blow to our hopes.  However, those who are ready to throw in the towel, let me caution you that our young Terps were able to beat the then #12 Iowa State Cyclones while Dez Wells shot an atrocious 5 for 20 from the field and did everything he could to give Iowa State a chance to comeback in the closing minutes.

That said, of course I think Maryland's chances would be better with Wells in the lineup.  I'm just saying that I think our young kids can pull this off.

Melo Trimble has shown that he is an elite talent.  The offense will run through him.  Ceko has gotten better every game and if he plays well tonight, the Terps can hold their own in the interior.  Jake will need to get his points and I think we will need one other scorer to step up.  Nickens and Wiley are both capable. 

The crowd will help.  A win tonight and this team is in the Top 25 to stay.

Maryland vs VMI

Hopefully the basketball team can help to erase the awful taste left in our mouths after the football team aborted their season yesterday. I won't speak of it anymore, but suffice to say that if Maryland played Rutgers 9 times, they win 10 of them.  Only an incompetent coaching staff could have given Rutgers the victory. Now onto the basketball [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Rutgers

The quest for 8-4 ends tomorrow with a home game against Rutgers.  Maryland can taste a decent bowl and I don't see Rutgers spoiling the party. Rutgers has been getting rolled in the Big Ten and I think the Terps have a chance to run up the score. A win and the Terps have a shot at a decent bowl.  I've seen them projected to play in the Citrus [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Monmouth

The CBE Champions return home tomorrow night to face Monmouth.  Monmouth and Maryland share a common opponent, Central Connecticut State.  Maryland beat them by close to 40.  Monmouth beat them by 15.  I'm expecting a 20 point win.  There's obviously a hangover concern after the triumphant trip to Kansas City but I'm confident the Terps can weather [...] Read More »

We're Relevant!

That's the best thing you can say about last night's resounding victory at the CBE Classic over #13 Iowa State.  The Maryland Terrapins basketball team matters on the national scene again.  Barring an utter collapse against the minnows Monmouth and VMI, the Terps should be ranked in the Top 25 come Monday, December 1st. Who could have thought th [...] Read More »

Maryland vs #13 Iowa State

If Terp fans wanted any indication of how beaten down we've been over the last few years, one need only look to the last five minutes of last night's game against Arizona State.  I think we all felt that after giving up the lead, the Terps would just collapse as they always do and we'd lose another close game.  It didn't happen.  The combination of [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Arizona State

Today is when the rubber meets the road.  Today is when the bullets start flying for real.  Use whatever cliche you wish.  The young Terps will fast their first real competition of the season when they tip-off against Arizona State in Kansas City this evening.  I think this Tournament used to be sponsored by O'Reilly Auto Parts but who really knows [...] Read More »

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 of [...] Read More »

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 »
