The last two weeks have proven that DJ Durkin has a long road ahead. The talent on the roster is just not good enough to compete with most of the Big Ten.
It's going to take time to undo all the damage that Randy Edsall did during his tenure. As evidence, we can look at all the true freshman that are making an impact this season. Unfortunately, they are ready to compete consistently the way upperclassmen do. It's likely going to take two years to be truly competitive.
Now, injuries are piling up. Heartbreakingly, the team announced that Will Likely tore his ACL and is done for the year. Just awful. The kid needed this season to make his case for the NFL and now he will not have the chance to truly showcase his skills. I hope he sneaks into the draft anyway. He'll be a great kick returner somewhere.
Michigan State limps into town with more losses on their record at this juncture in the season then they have seen in years. Despite their struggles, they are more talented than our Terps. Maryland will fight but a win would a big surprise.
