Gameday: Maryland vs Howard

The DJ Durkin era officially begins today and there is reason for excitement. The product on the field will likely be a work in progress but Durkin has had one of the best off seasons in recent memory. DJ has landed a slew of big recruits and has really turned the "DMV" movement into something.

What all of that means for this year, remains to be seen. Perry Hills is still the QB and although this offense suits him well, he's not exactly an elite talent. The WRs and RBs are deep and the defense should be much improved.

Can the Terps make a bowl game? Absolutely. Can they win 8 or 9 games? Doubtful.

One thing I know for sure is that the Terps will be much better than last year's version simply because we've traded Edsall for Durkin.

As for today's game, none of this matters. The Terps are 46 point favorites. This will be a blowout. It will tell us nothing about this team. Hopefully, we'll see some things that get us excited for what will see down the road.

Melo Trimble Returns For Junior Season

Terp fans got the good news they'd been hoping for when Melo Trimble announced he was returning to College Park next season. As a Terp fan, it's hard not to be elated by this news although as a Melo fan, I do feel bad for him. His slump during the back half of the year really hurt his draft stock. I hope he's able to rediscover the magic that we ha [...] Read More »

Final Verdict

That was disappointing. Reaching the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2003 is something to be proud of but the Terps were capable of a lot more. The loss to Kansas was a microcosm of the larger problems that nagged the Terps all season. The offense was stone cold for a significant stretch in the second half and got outrebounded. The Jayhawks finis [...] Read More »

NCAA Sweet 16: #5 Maryland vs #1 Kansas

The Terps take on the #1 overall seed this evening in their first sweet 16 game in 13 years.  The Terps are 6 point underdogs and some experts are picking the Terps. Seth Davis for one, has predicted the upset. Personally, I'm confident that Maryland has the talent to play with Jayhawks.  I expect the game to be close throughout.  It will come d [...] Read More »

Terps Advance To Sweet 16

The Terps punched their ticket to their first sweet 16 in 13 years tonight. Put another way, it is the first time since I started this blog 12 years ago that I get to write a post about Maryland in the Sweet 16. Oh man, how I've waited for this! I don't care how it happened, I'm gonna enjoy it! It wasn't pretty, in fact it was down right ugly [...] Read More »

NCAA Tournament Round 2: #5 Maryland vs # 13 Hawaii

On Friday, the Terps backed into a win against South Dakota State to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Ahead by 18 points in the second half, the Terps nearly gave it all way thanks to incredibly hot shooting by the Jack Rabbits (13-16 down the stretch), poor defense, and dumb fouling by Maryland.  Melo Trimble fouled ou [...] Read More »

NCAA Tournament First Round: #5 Maryland vs #12 South Dakota State

It's the Terrapins vs. the Jackrabbits this afternoon in Spokane WA.  Or put another way, it's the turtoises vs the hare.  Yes, the old fable ends well for the turtoise and I certainly hope today is no different. #5 seeds have been dropping like flies so far and the Terps are certainly vulnerable.  South Dakota State has excellent shooters and T [...] Read More »

Big Ten Semifinals: Maryland vs Michigan State

It's Big Ten Semifinal day and Maryland has a chance for a true signature win today. Sure, the Terps have beaten top 20 teams this season, but always at home. Michigan State is a favorite to get to the Final Four and a likely one seed if they beat Maryland today. In fact, they may be a one seed if they lose. The Terps played Michigan Stat [...] Read More »

Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinal: Maryland vs Nebraska

The Terps have a surprise opponent tonight. Nebraska beat Wisconsin last night and that means the Cornhuskers now have a chance to avenge their 5 point loss in Lincoln earlier this year.   Nebraska will be playing their third game in three days so Maryland should win handily. "Should" of course is the key word in that sentence.  Maryland should [...] Read More »

B1G and NCAA Tournament outlook

The dust has settled and it's time for the real thing. I think we all expected a better performance from the Terps in Bloomington, but I don't believe that game was ever going to be a good indicator of the success this team will have over the next month (hopefully). The B1G Tournament will tell us if this team has the mettle to make it through Marc [...] Read More »
