University Of Maryland Not Expected To Do Well

Did you see the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated? It was the College Football Preview issue.

Those of us who live in Laurel Maryland were very disappointed with the issue.

Sports Illustrated predicted the University of Maryland football  Terps to finish in the bottom of their division in the ACC.  In fact, the article only mentioned Maryland in passing.

This prediction is somewhat surprising when the Terps are going for their fourth straight bowl appearance.  If  Maryland is successful in their quest for a fourth straight bowl appearance, they will set a school record.

The probable reason for the prediction is that Maryland has a very young team.  Only nine returning starters this year.   The Terrapins also lost three receivers from last year.

Three of Maryland’s returning starters on defense are from Prince Georges County. Riverdale Baptist’s Travis Ivey, Dematha’ Anthony Wiseman and Gwynn Park’s Adrian Moten are all starters on the Terrapin defense.

Don’t count the Terps out to early.  I went to the game last year against California.  Cal was supposed to blow out Maryland, but were surprised when the Terrapins scored a bunch of points early and held on to win.

Maryland opens the season against the California on September 5th.

Go Terps, make Maryland proud.
