After An Ugly Win at South Florida, Maryland is Now Ready to Rumble With WVU

The Maryland Terrapins found a way to win on the road last Saturday afternoon despite turning the ball over six times.  Maryland Quarterback C.J. Brown, who had a lot of success on the ground in the Terps’ opening game, found much more success throwing the ball against the Bulls. While Brown was unfortunately intercepted twice, the 17/28 passing, along with two touchdowns, was a step in the right direction. Both receiving touchdowns were caught by Marcus Leak. The Terps defense played very well again, only allowed ten points. Seven of the Bulls’ points came off of a fumble returned for a touchdown and there isn’t much the defense can do about that. Overall, it wasn’t a pretty game, that’s for sure. In football, good teams have to be able to win ugly, and that’s what Maryland did.

 

West Virginia looked pretty good week one against Alabama. There is no way to deny that. Last week, WVU put a hurting on Towson, and many Terps fans are a little nervous about Saturday’s high noon showdown with the West Virginia Mountaineers. Don’t be. I know what happened last year doesn’t mean anything this year, but it’s hard for me to forget the 37-0 score Maryland dropped on WVU last season at M&T Bank stadium. Maryland has a good defense and an offense that is due to start firing on all cylinders. At home, at what will be a packed Byrd Stadium on Saturday, Maryland is going to make statement. And that statement, is that the Terps are a much better team than most people are giving them credit for.
