52-7 is some sort of ass whooping. But that’s what Big Ten teams do against CAA teams. It’s hard to say a lot about Maryland based on this game other than they did what they were supposed to.

 

Also, I’ll be damned if that “Chessie Monster” crab pretzel  wasn’t fantastic……

Quarterback C.J. Brown had one passing touchdown, and three more on the ground. His completion percentage of 46% left a lot to be desired, but it was only the first game of the year, so we’ll give him a mulligan. (Mulligan for a senior, ugh.) In the third quarter C.J. and WR Deon Long hooked up for a 41-yard touchdown for that passing score. Maryland’s top WR Stefon Diggs didn’t get into the end zone, but he did have five catches. Diggs also had an explosive 59-yard kick return. Several  running backs got touches in the game, but top backs Brandon Ross and Wes Brown combined for 167 yards on 29 carries. The defense added two interceptions and the rout was on. Turn the page now, though. That cup cake game is over and the Terps are now headed to South Florida.

The Terrapins are only a 14 point favorite this Saturday at 3:30 PM when they visit the South Florida Bulls. That’s a much different situation than last week’s game. First of all, Maryland is playing a more competitive team, hence the closer spread. The Terps are also on the road this week, which of course, does play a factor in the line as well.  All of this considered and the Terps are still a two touchdown favorite, and the better team. That’s why the Terps must win, which I strongly believe they will. It’s just going to be closer than Fourteen. (Sorry, Terp bettors)
Let’s Beat them Bulls Saturday!!!!
