ACC is too much into basketball, they don't pay enough. The north Carolina teams get all the foul calls. Big10 pays alot more. They really want to get into the Maryland\Washington dc market. The #9 media market in the world.
Why not pick up Maryland?
We have a hot recruiting base in both football, and basketball.
Basketball won a championship in 2002. We won 11 games in football in 2002,2003. 2001.
what do you Big10 fans think?
Because in the last 2-3 years Maryland/DC is starting to really produce alot of football talent, Goldman, Darby, Tabor, Stefon Diggs, West Brown.
2013, 2014, 2015 are flat out loaded. 247 has Maryland's top in state players and its a list of about 60 players.
If you would have told me in 2002 that Maryland would have legit 45 div1 players for the 2013 year, i would have laughed in your face.
But Coach Edsall , Coach Mike Locksley and all this Maryland coaches have to step their game up. Or kids like Williams Chest and others will leave the state. I feel this 2012 season is make or break for my Terps. If we can go back to the way Edsall ran his offense in Connecticut running, running, running the game to set up the pass. Maryland can be successful, because when Edsall first got to Maryland. He wanted to make a slash and so he got a wide open offensive guy, who didnt even like calling running plans.
But i Know with Coach Locksley Terps will have a more balance NFL like pro offense. Which will help the O line develop quicker, Give Qb CJ Brown a clean pocket, and Guys like Diggs, West Brown and the play makers should find success in this offense. My main thing is just if i could talk to Coach Edsall one on one. is that he should go back to the way he coached offense at Uconn. Do what got him to the BCS bowl he went to. because there is going to be so much good young talent in Dc/MD this coming years.

girls the girls they love me.
y'all screwed up not going after leach when you had the chance. he'd have been awesome in college park.
We arent screwed up nothing yet. like That Movie "Field of Dreams "
If you build it they will come. Alot of this talented Dc/ Bmore , MD kids live 20-50 mins from the campus. If and When we can win, 7 games get to nice bowls. the players will stay. DMV 4 ever. Orioles, Wizards, Redskins/Ravens Terps EVERYTHING . EVERYBODY STAND UP.
The Blue Print = Win 7 games in 2012. Show out in the bowl game win it. 2013, 2014, 2015 recruits will see this, They wil have home town pride. We will be on our way.
you keep telling yourself that and let me know how it works out for you.
I have confidence in my Terps. We will turn things around. Failure is not am option. We must ball out, because our backs are against the wall. We have to make it.
are you 14? failure isn't an option? your backs are against the wall? what wall? long history of failure for maryland football, so it's definitely an option.
do yourself a favor and root for the lacrosse team next weekend. if they play like they did yesterday, they'll be tough to beat. they get by duke on saturday and they win the title, imo.
The top talent in the MD/DC area could go to UMD, or they could go to a program worth playing for. That's UMD's biggest problem.
Yeah it doesn't matter how you feel. Maryland blows and that isn't going to change.
Who's your squad?
Gringo Mafia Sergeant at Arms - 5 time POTW
That's why they play the games on the field.
pulling for loyola or maryland, but i think duke has the best team. i think nd loses to loyola and maryland will have to play like they did yesterday to beat duke.
so glad you guys beat uva today. i'm pretty anti-irish, but dom starsia's a gigantic prick. hope that kid that got ktfo is ok and can go next weekend.
Maryland sucks man, time to accept it.
Dude what the hell are you talking about?
The majority of elite players from maryland will always leave state... thats not going change
We tried. Old White Guys got in the way.
No. This is jtp's doing. He's kept me around for his bizarre HOF resume.
The real thing Maryland needs to get a handle on is the basketball program. My dad is a UMD alum and I grew up watching Maryland bball and always liked Gary but he never got that team as good as they could be, even with winning a title. Want to talk about talent in the Baltimore/D.C. area? Look at the basketball talent. And they most certainly could be convinced to stay close to home.
Maryland's football issue lies in being in the ACC in a day and age where the ACC is bush league compared to the Pac, SEC, Big Ten, and Big XII. Maryland is like Oregon prior to Belotti where they can either be really awful or really great. We need a great coach that can and will stay, we had that in James Franklin but he left and now we're stuck with Edsall. What makes this even harder is that Ohio State and Penn State heavily recruit this area as well and more likely than not players who go there will never go to CP.
Why cant we have both, i understand that Maryland has a ceiling in football. something like 10 wins, or 11 wins,. BCS bowl game is our ceiling. No where not Alabama, or Texas or Florida.
But winning 8-9, even 10 games a year shouldn't be out of the question.
The area is really starting to grow alot of talented football players.
the Basketball program is starting to come around,maryland basketball coach mark turgeon
you quoted me talking about maryland lacrosse in the final four next weekend. you are a notre dame fan. notre dame and maryland are both playing in the ncaa lacrosse final four next weekend. you should pay more attention to what's going on at your school.
Don't ever compare Maryland to Oregon again. Ever.
You honestly think I give a damn about lacrosse?
I meant who's your favorite football team?
I'd put Maryland's football ceiling around 9 wins. You guys are awful.
you should, it's your school's best sport.
how is it you can't figure out my football team? does the internet confuse you?
