#25 Maryland vs American

The 2016-17 Maryland Terrapins Men's Basketball Team kicks off its season tonight against American University. As is the case with these early season cupcakes, the game is less about the opponent and more about how the Terps are coming together.

If the exhibition against Catawba is an indicator, the Terps freshman class is a solid one. Cowan, Huerter, and Jackson look like contributors.  Dion Wiley is back and he is going to be a valuable contributor.

The biggest question mark for the Terps will be the frontline.  Damonte Dodd has struggled with consistency throughout his career and it remains to be seen if he can ever be relied on for anything more than a shot blocker.  He needs to be a rebounding force this season for the Terps.  Ivan Bender was purported to be the most improved player this season and he just broke his wrist so we won't find out if he can contribute for awhile.  Michael Cekovsky is also battling injuries so it's likely the Terps will struggle upfront in the early going.  The pressure will be on the likes of LG Gill to provide the muscle and interior scoring the Terps will need to have a balanced attack.

Gameday: Maryland vs #2 Michigan

The Terps are massive underdogs and are likely candidates for a blow out loss tomorrow. The defense against Indiana demonstrated how far the Terps need to go to be consistent in the Big Ten. Right now, they just don't have the athletes on that side of the ball to stop good teams.  Michigan is not known for its offensive prowess as much as [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Indiana

The Terps can get bowl eligible in Bloomington tomorrow as they take on the frisky Indiana Hoosiers.

Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State

The last two weeks have proven that DJ Durkin has a long road ahead. The talent on the roster is just not good enough to compete with most of the Big Ten. It's going to take time to undo all the damage that Randy Edsall did during his tenure. As evidence, we can look at all the true freshman that are making an impact this season. Unfortunately [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Minnesota

Maryland Football came crashing down to Earth in Happy (Not Happy) Valley last weekend. The defense was overmatched and Penn State demonstrated a different level of athletic class than the Terps currently possess. Looking back, it's hard to believe that prognosticators thought the Terps could win. If Penn State had played Maryland's schedule h [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Penn State

Tomorrow's game against the Nittany Lions is arguably the biggest game Maryland has played in close to a decade. The Terps have a chance to get to 5-0 for the first time since 2001- and we all know what happened that year.

Basketball: Bruno Fernando Commits To Maryland

I know I'm a couple days late here but I was traveling for work. Fernando is a huge get for the Terps.  Tons has already been written on this but for me, the headlines are that the kid is an elite athlete who has post moves and a soft touch. Diamond Stone wasn't exactly jumping out of the gym last year and that's what Bruno does. He may not be a [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Purdue

The Terps kick off the B1G season tomorrow against lowly Purdue. The Terps will be favored and they have an excellent shot at moving to 4-0. That would an exceptional start to the DJ Durkin era. Before we break out the party hats, it's important to note that Maryland was expected to win their first three given the quality of the opponent and Purdue [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs UCF

Perry Hills is the most accurate passer in the FBS. That means one of two things: 1. Gus Frerotte is the QB whisperer and Perry Hills is on his way to the NFL. 2. Maryland's competition thus far has been absolutely abysmal. Ok. It doesn't have to mean one of those two things, it can mean both right? While it's doubtful, that Hills will b [...] Read More »

Maryland vs FIU

Maryland predictably breezed through Howard last week and now it's on to an odd Friday evening kickoff with FIU.   The bullets still aren't flying for real as this is largely just another tune-up. If last week is any indication, the Terps will be a run heavy offense that tries to use establish the run to open up the passing lanes. This ma [...] Read More »
