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 anymore.  The bottom-line is that the Terps will find out how they stack up against a power conference opponent.

ASU is coached by our old friend, Herb Sendek.  He graduated/lost a bunch of guys and has replaced most of them with jucos. Translation: the Sun Devils are still learning how to play together too.

Our Terps struggled against their last opponent, Fordham.  Shots didn't fall in the first half and Terps struggled to find answers inside.  That said, they came out in the second half and dominated as they should.  There are still so many reasons to be concerned. Can Layman hang in there against stronger defenders?  Can Trimble run the offense against aggressive defenses?  What will happen to our rebounding?

We are going to learn in a few hours.

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 »

Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State

The Terps welcome Sparty to the friendly confines of Byrd Stadium this evening.  Both teams are bowl eligible although the respective national profiles are quite different.  Michigan State was in the national championship discussion up until last weekend, while our Terps have been on the cusp of relevance all year. The quest for relevance is in [...] Read More »

Basketball Tip-Off: Maryland vs Wagner

The Maryland Men's Basketbal season begins in earnest tonight against Wagner.  My feeling as we begin the season are not particularly strong.  This team has many question marks and all of them need to be answered in the affirmative if Maryland is going to have a good year. The biggest ones are: 1.  Is Melo Trimble able to lead the offense?  Ear [...] Read More »

We Beat Penn State And Played A Basketball Game Yesterday

2-35-1 never felt so good, huh?  We all know that Penn State is turrible but yesterday the Terps did something that had never happened before.  They won a football game in State College, PA.  I felt like my old self watching this game.  I was yelling at the TV, pacing back and forth.  All the old hatreds for Penn State came flowing back.  I rem [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Penn State

Maryland hasn't beaten Penn State since the early sixties.  The Terps record against the Nittany Lions all-time 1-35-1.  Maryland has never won in Happy Valley.  It's an awful history.  One that can't be wiped clean with a victory today, but a win today will certainly feel like a new start. Penn State is not good.  Maryland might not be much bet [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Wisconsin

By all accounts, Maryland has no chance tomorrow.  The Terps have never been to Camp Randall Stadium where the Badgers enjoy a formidable home field advantage.  What's more, Wisconsin is huge upfront and possesses the second-best running attack in the nation. Maryland is a bit under-sized in the trenches and this looks like a classic mismatch.  [...] Read More »

Maryland v Iowa

I'm having trouble with my publishing tool but I want to get this thread up before the game. In short, we can beat Iowa and Iowa can beat us.  I expect a close game.  A win and Maryland is likely bowl bound. [...] Read More »
