Maryland Game Day: Terps Face Second Cup Cake In A Row As ODU Comes Calling

Featured, Sports and Bets — September 6, 2013 at 8:38 pm by

Opening day at Byrd stadium went as well as it could have last week.  The tailgate beers were cold, and the college chicks showed up to watch the Turtles kick off the season. But beating FIU isn’t enough to get too pumped. The Terps just did exactly what they were supposed to do against weaker competition, they kicked the crap out of them.  Let’s hope they keep that up tomorrow.

This time of year most NCAA teams are scheduling a few cup cake games to start the season and Maryland is no different. That said, it’s not always as easy as its supposed to be. Just ask West Virginia, who barely slid past William and Mary last week. Throw aside the fact that FIU was a weak opponent and Maryland really did look good. QB C.J. Brown made his return to the Terps line up in a big way. The double threat QB threw for 3 TD’S while he also had over 100 yds rushing to go along with two touchdowns on the ground. To say that it’s good to have a QB like Brown back under center in an understatement. Returning WR Stefon Diggs and new comer Deon Long both looked great with a TD each. Diggs’ 66 yard TD in the 2nd quarter was a  pretty impressive play and sign of good things to come.

 

While MD did put it on FIU last week they backed off in the 2nd half only scoring 3 points after the break. I know many of the starters sat and its nothing to worry about, but I would like to see the Terps play a complete game this week.  One where they crush Old Dominion and never looking back. Maryland is a 19 point favorite at home, which is about where the odds makers had them last week. Based on last weeks performance I feel confidant the Terps can end this one in blowout fashion again, giving the drunk college kids a good show and putting a few bucks into the gambling man’s pocket.  Terps get after it 4 PM tomorrow at College Park. FEAR THE TURTLE.
