The Outlook for Football Season: Part Two

After the relentless optimism of Part One, the indefinitely long series returns with an analysis of the incoming recruits. I'll only break down the recruits that have chances of playing this year. Guys like Tyrek Cheeseboro, Matt Robinson or Ian Evans aren't going to see any love because their shirts are so red they're being attacked by bulls. Luck [...] Read More »

Football Recruiting Update

I know all the focus is on basketball right now (and rightfully so), but since my work at Turtle Sports Report has forced me to look to the gridiron when I only want to see hardwood and tank tops (Excuse the double entendre), I can’t help but notice that Ralph Friedgen and his staff has put together a pretty good recruiting class.This class is pret [...] Read More »

Introducing Turtle Soup's student contributor and other news

As most of you know, both Gregg and I live outside of the state of Maryland.  It's also true that neither Gregg nor I have been out of college for over 10 years. Because of these two factors; Gregg and I couldn't be more pleased to introduce our first student contributor, Ethan Rothstein.  You can call him "the Intern" if you like; but that implies [...] Read More »

2009 Football Terps Are Dead To Me

I was about to write a post mortem on yet another disastrous performance by the gridiron Terps when it dawned on me.  This team is not worthy of the energy that is expended as I type words about them.Blame it on the coach, the scheme, "the confused one", or the players.  I don't care.  The season is over as far as I am concerned.  It's a damn shame [...] Read More »

The Dyke (or Dike) Is Full Of Holes

That's the best analogy I can muster at this late hour for the football Terps.  When we fix the turnovers and penalties; the defense fails to show.Due to the horrendous start time; I missed the entire game.  Needless to say, I'm thankful in retrospect.  Wake rolled up 500 yards of total offense for the first time 4 years. Sure, Chris Turner threw 3 [...] Read More »

Terps vs. Wake Preview

Before we talk about tomorrow's game; I have a few housekeeping items.The previous post - Please ignore it.

Terps Last Stand - Rutgers Is A Must-Win

Rutgers is a bad football team and all indications thus far point to the fact that Maryland is equally putrid.  Nevertheless, one of these two squads will have the chance to right themselves tomorrow at Byrd Stadium.  Those of you looking for quality football may choose to avert your eyes.  How's that for an exciting lead-in?As ACCsports.com notes, [...] Read More »

It's Official: The Football Team Sucks

Middle Tennessee State University came into Byrd Stadium and left with a win.  I went to Maryland when Mark Duffner was the coach and we never lost a game to a team like that. Now, we've lost to a team like that in successive seasons. First away and now at home.The program has gone from excelling to middling in less than a decade.  We went from mid [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. MTSU Thread

Maryland squares off today against what is arguably the 4th best college football team in the state of Tennessee.  The game will be close.  The Terps have not demonstrated that they are a class of above the likes of MTSU.By my count, we have one player on the squad who has shown true quality on the field- Da'Rel Scott.  Freiden and Franklin would b [...] Read More »
