Gameday: Maryland vs UConn

Today's matchup would be a salivating one if it were a basketball game.  Unfortunately, it appears that UConn football has fallen on hardtimes. The Huskies opened the season with a lowly loss to Towson University. UConn hasn't played a game since but the Husky faithful are not expecting much this year.

For the Terps, the boys have a chance to prove that they can still dominate when the level of competition is ratcheted up a notch.  What's more, it is Maryland's first road test.  All in all, it is the perfect opponent for a team that we all hope is on the rise.

So far, the Terps have given fans little to complain about.  CJ Brown has been nearly perfect while Stephon Diggs may be the most electrifying player in the NCAA right now.  His mate at the other wideout position, Deon Long, looks like the real deal too.  The defense has been getting turnovers and stopping drives with regularity.

If the Terps maintain their form and come away with a win, we'll be treated to a great test next week in Baltimore against West Virginia.  A win there, and we can say the Terps are for real.

My prediction for today's game: 31-16

Maryland vs Old Dominion

Maryland played one of their best games in years last week as they routed and undermanned FIU squad.  The tune ups continue today as Old Dominion comes to Byrd.  As far as I'm concerned, games like this only offer negative consequences.  No one gives you credit for a win and a loss can ruin the season. ODU is much better than FIU so the test wi [...] Read More »

Terps Open Football Season vs FIU

The prognosticators don't know exactly what to make of the Terps final season in the ACC. Surely, Maryland will have better luck and less injuries.  CJ Brown is the undisputed starter.  Far be from me to question the coaching staff about that decision since I haven't been at practice or seen any of our QBs throw a pass all summer.  That said, I do [...] Read More »

Is Alex Len Really Going To Be Picked #1?

I feel compelled to address the groundswell of news reports that Alex Len is about to be drafted #1 by the Cleveland Cavaliers this week.  While on one hand, getting picked #1 is great for Alex personally and a great advertisement for the program; I'm troubled.  Here how I see it playing out: 1.  He's not ready to contribute and Cleveland Stinks [...] Read More »

Dion Wiley Commits To Terps

Mark Turgeon nabbed another top 50 recruit today (no. 36 to be exact) as 2014 shooting guard, Dion Wiley committed to the Terps.  Add Wiley to fellow 2014 guard, PG Melo Trimble, and the Terps have their back court of the future in place. It's further evidence that Coach Turgeon has created a new level of expectations for the caliber of talent [...] Read More »

Bye Bye Alex Len

In a move the surprises absolutely no one, Alex Len is going declare himself eligible for the NBA Draft.  We've known this was going to happen back in November.  He will leave a large hole to fill, but Chuck Mitchell and Shaq Cleare are up to the challenge. I wish Alex the best although I'd be surprised if he sees the court much over the next tw [...] Read More »

Pe'Shon Howard To Transfer

I can't say that this news comes as a shock but Pe'Shon Howard has played his last game in a Maryland uniform.  On one hand, I'm sad because Howard is a great kid who caught a few bad breaks with injuries.  On the other hand, I think that his departure is a signal that Turgeon intends to upgrade the PG position NEXT SEASON. Yes, freshman Rod [...] Read More »

NIT Semifinals - Terps v Iowa

Perhaps this is a bad question to ask on the eve of the NIT Semifinals; but I'm wondering what Terp fans prefer the most?  A first round loss in the NCAA Tournament or the NIT Championship?  For me, it's all about getting to the Dance; but the merits of a deep run in the NIT are clear:  freshman and sophomores get a taste of the postseason agai [...] Read More »

NIT Quarterfinals: Maryland vs Alabama

Tonight's game provides a valuable test for the Terps.  Mark Turgeon definitely wants this. I can guarantee you that.  After the season ending debacle at Virginia; the young Terps desperately need to have the experience of a road win as we look toward next season. Neutral sites are one thing, but winning  on the road is the difference between a [...] Read More »
