Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State

This week has been awful. Our university has become a topic of national discussion in the worst possible way and its leaders have besmirched the great reputation of our beloved school.

DJ Durkin’s dismissal has opened up the debate over a new coach and its hard to imagine that the Terps will bring in a big name. The athletic department is in disarray and the schools we compete with for recruits have the “why would you go there?” speech ready to go.

And of course, the Terps play a football game tomorrow. It’s a big game. With a win, the Terps will be bowl eligible. Michigan State is one of the better teams in the Big Ten but the gap between them and the Terps can be overcome.

Maryland has been playing the entire season in front of a mostly empty home field. I really hope tomorrow is different. The players have endured so much. From the loss of a teammate and friend to the controversy that ensued, the players have kept their heads down and have performed admirably on the field. Now that the Durkin saga is over, the fans owe it to these guys to show up and support them.

Who knows? If we pack the house, maybe the kids can find a way to pull out the win?

DJ Durkin To Return As Head Coach

DJ is returning to the program. I’m speechless and frankly don’t understand the decision. The Report’s findings indicated that there was “ongoing dysfunction” in the athletic department and the training staff’s mistakes contributed to Jordan McNair’s death. I can’t fathom how those findings square with Damon Evans and DJ Durkin keeping their jobs. [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Illinois

The Terps are still playing games. This despite the fact that they have no passing game whatsoever. A win tomorrow and Maryland will be one game away from bowl eligibility. That’s hard to fathom given how one-dimensional they but it is a fact nonetheless. Illinois is truly dreadful and can’t really beat anyone outside of Rutgers in the Big Ten. [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Iowa

He we are. This is a game that can define Maryland’s season. Iowa is a good football and Maryland is flying a long way to play them but the Hawkeyes are not an elite team. Over the last few years, that hasn’t mattered much. As we now know, any good team that it is not coached by Tom Herman generally just rolls through the Terps. Maybe today wi [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan

Well it’s that time of year. Maryland has racked up some early season wins and one of the Big Ten elite teams shows up on the schedule. It’s hard to imagine Maryland going to Ann Arbor and beating Michigan. Granted, that’s happened before (I was there), but this Michigan team is much better than that one. In reality, it would be great to see M [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Minnesota

How was that for crashing down to earth moment? Getting blown out at home to Temple hammered home the point that this team is far away from being ready to compete in the Big Ten. Temple is not a good team. The loss is pathetic and inexcusable. Now Minnesota comes to town and maybe Maryland beats them. But does it really matter? Does anyone bel [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Temple

Maryland looks to keep its perfect season intact today when Temple comes to town. This is the last tune up before the conference season begins. This game should not be close and so far, the Terps have shown that they can blow teams out. As long as the Terps keep the penalties to a minimum and avoid injuries (obviously), they’ll be fine. T [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Bowling Green

What a win last weekend! With all of the dark clouds surrounding the program, the team took the field and played their best. They even handled the weather delay and took down a ranked team. It’s hard not to be proud of these kids and how they represented the University. It also set the Terps up nicely to have a great start to the season. [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Texas

What a summer.  The Maryland Athletic Program has their worst summer since 1986. The tragedy of Jordan McNair’s death has been compounded by the behavior of senior administration officials. It’s a black mark that will last for some time. This goes far beyond sports but the purpose of this site is to talk about the games on the field so th [...] Read More »
