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 indeed why today's game is so important.  Maryland has played a ranked team competitively in god-knows-how-long.  Few expect a Terp win today, but a competitive contest would make us all feel like we are headed in the right direction. 

The lost of Diggs for the season is devastating but the Terps have the talent on edges to recover.  I shudder thinking about CJ Brown making good throws against the Spartans elite defense but these guys are human and can be beaten.

A win would be dreamland.  A close game would come close to that.

PS- the basketball discussion continues in the thread below.

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 th [...] 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 [...] 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.  Maryl [...] 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 mism [...] 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 »

Maryland vs Ohio State

What a sports weekend this is shaping up to be in Baltimore/DC! The Orioles and Nationals are in the playoffs.  The Ravens are playing the old Baltimore franchise, the Colts, there is a football team in Landover MD, and our beloved Terps play Ohio State. The good folks at Buckeye Battle Cry asked me to participate in a blogger exchange.&nbs [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Indiana

Maryland officially begins life in the Big Ten tomorrow with a trip to Bloomington IN to face the Indiana Hoosiers.  The Hoosiers have been Jeckyl and Hyde this year.  A home loss to Bowling Green followed by a win over #18 Missouri.  Which team will show up?   I suppose that depends on which Terps team shows up.  [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Syracuse

I've made my feelings about our starting quarterback known.  Thus, I fear we are in for a long day tomorrow.  Randy Edsall seems intent on sacrificing the rest of the talent on the roster so he can have a mobile quarterback on the field.  Caleb Rowe may not be the second coming of Scott McBrien but he was in for a handful plays and c [...] Read More »

It's Time To Sit CJ Brown

Yesterday's loss looked close but it wasn't. WVU ran all over Maryland.  Nearly 700 yards of total offense? What's worse than calling that "embarrassing"? Humiliating? Yeah that's it.  It was humiliating.  From where I sit, I didn't see a defense that was ready for the offense they faced.  The Terps rushed 3 or 4 guys [...] Read More »
