#4 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps kick off Big Ten conference play tonight against conference minnow Penn State. While no game should be taken for granted, I can't imagine the Nittany Lions will be coming into the Xfinity Center and causing too much of a fight. We've seen Maryland keep teams in games with poor defense and this may happen again but the result won't be in doubt. Penn St lost their best all around player from last year (Newbill) and have struggled at times this season.

The conference season has already produced its first surprise. Last night Iowa held serve at home and beat the #1 team in the nation, Michigan State last night. The win underscores how difficult it is to win on the road in this conference. Maryland will get a chance to get their first road win at frisky Northwestern on Saturday. That will be an interesting test but Maryland has more talent at every position.

An undefeated week and the Terps will be moving up in the polls. Looking at the schedule, the Terps have some tough road games at Wisconsin and Michigan but if they can emerge unscathed, they could be the #1 team in the land heading into that Michigan State in 1/23.

A final note on the Big Ten is that the conference is currently rated #6 in the country. Many teams have struggled and the conference looks to be top heavy. I don't know what that means for Maryland at this stage but it doesn't change the fact that Maryland needs to take care of business against teams like Penn St at home.

#4 Maryland vs Marshall

Is it still basketball season? Feels like no given the Terps have played exactly one game in the last two weeks. Tonight is the final non-conference tune-up when Marshall visits College Park. This game  should not and will not be close.  Terps fans should concern themselves not with the final score but with the sharpness of the Terps on b [...] Read More »

#6 Terps vs Princeton

The Terps play in the good 'ol Baltimore Arena tonight as the take on the Princeton Tigers.  The Bawlmer Arena is to arenas what LaGuardia is to airports: a relic of the past that outlived its usefulness 25 years ago. To me, it stands a monolith to Baltimore's futile efforts to masquerade as a major sports town. Yes I love the Ravens and Oriol [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs UMES

The Terps have entered the final stretch of the non-conference season. UMES comes to College Park tonight and they are surely the worst team the Terps will play all season. UMES is fresh off a 50-point drubbing at the hands of Michigan State and I expect the Terps to demonstrate no mercy either. Despite beating UConn at the Garden on Tues [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs UConn

There's a ton I want to say about this matchup but I am too swamped today.  Sorry. It's going to be a great game but if I had to put my prognosticator hat on, I'd say this game builds off the St. Francis performance and the Terps fire on cylinders from the opening tip.  We win by 10+. I will make it up in the comments. Go Terps! [...] Read More »

University To Rename Byrd Stadium

The University just announced that Byrd Stadium is being renamed to "Maryland Stadium".  The effort is due to many campus groups' objection to having one of the University's flagship facilities named after a devoted segregationist.  The memorandum goes on to say that Byrd's contributions have laid the foundation for all the success the University h [...] Read More »

#2 Maryland vs St Francis

I guess this will be the last time for awhile that we'll be able to use that #2 handle in front of Maryland. It was an entertaining game down in chapel hill but unfortunately the result went the other way. we can take solace in the fact that the Terps fought hard and overcame a horrific amount of turnovers to take the lead in the second half. Ul [...] Read More »

ACC/B1G Challenge: #2 Maryland vs #9 UNC

While the incredible swirl around Maryland's search for a football coach continues, the basketball team heads down to Chapel Hill for a titanic match up with our old rivals, the Tarheels. It should be a great night.  The Tarheels enter the game as 6-point favorites.  They will welcome back their star point guard, Marcus Paige as well.  He'll be [...] Read More »

#2 Maryland vs Cleveland State

Of course, the day I forget to put up a football thread is the day that Maryland finally wins a game. Congrats to the seniors for going out with a win. Now the coaching search can begin. I'm praying for Dan Mullen but I'm certainly not banking on it. Now, on to basketball. The Terps have a tune up tonight in preparation for the trip down to Chap [...] Read More »

Terps win Cancun Challenge; Happy Thanksgiving Soupers

Now that's the kind of performance we all knew our Terps are capable of. Is there anything better than going to sleep coming off a performance like that and waking up to the best day of the year (in my humble opinion)? There were a lot of takeaways from last night, and honestly, not all of them were good.  Diamond struggled. He struggled badly. [...] Read More »
