The Terps have prioritized their frontcourt thus far in 2021, adding ESPN 100 big man Julian Reese, who has the physical tools to produce inside and the budding versatility to extend his game away from the basket. Ike Cornish is another high-level player capable of playing either forward position and being equally versatile defensively. Fellow four-star forward James Graham is a nice complement; while he has better size, he’s not quite as powerful and is more effective operating on … Read More »

There was a time when BIG Ten football happening looked bleak. But after 329 days, Maryland football is BACK. Maryland and Northwestern, two 3-9 teams from a year ago, faced off for the first time ever in Evanston. Between COVID-19, the 57 new players in the program, and an unknown starting quarterback for basically the entire week leading up to the game, there couldn’t be any real expectations, just hope.

Yes I was depressed after anticipating Maryland’s 1st Big Ten game of the year and having to sit through last year’s 3-9 Wildcat team run roughshod over the Terps.

For the Maryland offense, year after year, there is always something that throws everything off the rails. And for the past five years, an injury to the starting quarterback has been the team’s kryptonite. Case in point, Josh Jackson suffered an ankle injury last season right before two must win games. If something like that happens again this season, the team will be in big trouble as they only have two quarterbacks on scholarship.

Even though it may not seem like it from the earlier preview of their offense, this. Maryland team will probably not have a high winning percentage this season. A large majority of the team’s struggles will most likely come from the defense. A defense that was among the bottom
in the Big Ten last season, allowed the most points in conference play. The defense also allowed the most yards in all of the Big Ten last season. … Read More »
