Terps v. Cal (Almost) Halftime Thread

9/13/2008 1:10:16 PM I have to remove the "They Can't Win" Thread off the top of the page; just for karma's sake.

Today is my birthday. I can't picture a better present than what the Terps gave us in the first half. The running game has stayed true and Turner has been able to make them pay when Cal stacks the box. He isn't going down the field (except for that laser that Turner threw to Heyward-Bey); but the screen pass and short outs have been effective.

I'm still concerned about the complete lack of defensive pressure. Cal's QB has all day back there and the Bears have been able to move the ball as a result. The good news is that the defense has stiffened in the red zone thus far.

Turner has not made any mistakes which has keyed our success. Let our athletes do what they do. Just get them the ball in open space and we will be fine.

I'm cautiously optimistic that the Terps can finish this big win off in the next 30 minutes. As Gregg alluded to in his post; a win would set the season up for success because the ACC is way down (as everyone and their brother keeps mentioning)
