Gameday: Maryland vs Michigan State

11/2/2018 9:07:35 PM

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?
