Prognosticators Not Kind To Terrapin Football—Let Everyone Overlook Us!!!!!

The following is from gamerosters.com: 6. Maryland (3-5) Coach: Ralph Friedgen (9th year) –” The Terrapins struggled on offense last year under first year coordinator James Franklin and his West Coast system. This year however, the Terps return starting QB Chris Turner and a deep group of running backs led by All-ACC performer Da’Rel Scott. Despite the loss of 1st round pick Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland will boast one of the deepest and fastest set of WR’s in the conference. Turner and his weapons will need to progress in year 2 of Franklin’s system, because the offensive line will be breaking in 3 new starters and the defense returns just 4. The Terps will make the switch to a 4-3 defense, where DT Travis Ivey and LB Alex Wujciak should be deadly. There is a lot of youth with this team, and Friedgen should have Maryland back challenging for the top of the division soon, just not this year.” 

My take: Harpo is a Senior and for the first time he securely is QB1. Chris Turner will be a much more active QB, running and scrambling. There is an overall upgrade of receivers despite the loss of DHB. Don Brown is a defensive guru. I anxiously await 2009. Check out Chris Turner’s key run last year:

    The “Bleacher Report” had basically the same prognosis 4W 8L————–Let them look past us every week & the TERPS will surprise them all. Their Picks for Top teams are VT ,Gt ,NCS,WF————–They gave Ralph some bad ink as well as new BC Coach Frank Spaziani. I can’t wait for the season to begin.
