Terps vs. Middle Tennessee: The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction*

Posted by SuckaFish

Before each game we’ll give Five Reasons to Be Concerned, Five Reasons to Feel Good, and The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction.* We gave you the bad stuff, then the good stuff. Now here’s this week’s pick.

Why MTSU Could Win
They play a spread offense that has been incredibly difficult for the Terps to stop. And now Maryland has to try to stop it without two starting DBs. The Blue Raiders beat Maryland last year and think they can do it again today.

Why Maryland Could Win
A steady diet of Da’Rel Scott with a side order of Morgan Green should lead to big yards and lots of time of possession. Last year MTSU kept the ball for long stretches and Maryland abandoned the running game. If that changes today the Terps are in good shape.

The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction*
There are plenty of reasons for Maryland to be worried coming into this game, but they do have the most talent and should win the game. Look for more than 200 yards rushing and a couple of TDs out of Scott and Green and a much happier result in College Park. The SWAGLESS prediction:
Maryland 31, MTSU 23.

Terps vs. James Madison: The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction*

Posted by SuckaFish

Before each game we’ll give Five Reasons to Be Concerned, Five Reasons to Feel Good, and The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction.* We gave you the bad stuff, then the good stuff. Now here’s this week’s pick.

Why JMU Could Win
That’s what they do, win games. They’re a Top 10 team in 1-AA and made the playoffs in four of the last five seasons. And after the CAA went 2-0 against the ACC last week they won’t be intimidated.

Why Maryland Could Win
Speed, strength, and anger will all be in the Terps favor. Da’Rel Scott and Morgan Green should have some big holes to hit and that will end up giving Chris Turner plenty of time to find his speedy receivers in single coverage.

The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction*
The Terps could easily lay an egg, they’ve done it before. But they have too much size, too much speed, and too much to play for this weekend. JMU will get a steady diet of Scott and he should have over 100 yards and a couple scores. The Swagless prediction: Maryland 34, JMU 17.

Terps vs. Cal: Five Reasons to Feel Good

Posted by SuckaFish

Before each game we’ll give Five Reasons to Be Concerned, Five Reasons to Feel Good, and The Absolutely 100% Guaranteed Prediction.* We gave you the bad stuff. Now here’s the good stuff.

1. The Running Backs

Maryland is very talented and very deep at RB. Da’Rel Scott finished second in the conference in rushing last season and made the preseason All-ACC team. He was suspended for the first half of the Maryland’s Humanitarian Bowl win over Nevada. In the second half he ran for 174 yards and two TDs.

Davin Meggett had nearly 500 yards last year in a backup role. Morgan Green ran for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Humanitarian Bowl. And we haven’t even mentioned true freshman Caleb Porzel who may be the fastest player on the team.

2. The Wide Receivers

Torrey Smith set the ACC’s single-season record for kickoff return yards last year, including a 99-yard score in the bowl game. Now as a sophomore he’ll be unleashed on offense. And the Terps will easily go seven-deep at WR. Look for junior Emani Lee-Odai and sophomore Ronnie Tyler to have big years.

3. Chris Turner

The senior is entering his third season as the starting QB. He doesn’t make amazing plays. He doesn’t make too many huge mistakes. He doesn’t put up great numbers. But there is one thing he is great at, playing in big games. In his 20 starts he has a record of 5-1 against teams ranked in the Top 25.

4. A Brand New Defense

Maryland has a new defensive coordinator, Don Brown. His scheme is said to be baffling, full of stunts and blitzes. Eric Prisbell has an interesting article about it in The Washington Post. Coach Friedgen says he still can’t figure it out and he’s seen it all summer. Cal could have a very tough time dealing with it considering they have no film and no real way to prepare for this defense.

5. Kenny Tate

On the defense most people talk about LB Alex Wujciak as the star and best pro prospect. But S Kenny Tate has been the talk of camp. Even Coach Friedgen is gushing.

“When we recruited you, you told me you wanted to be an impact player,” Friedgen told Tate. “Right now you are an impact player. Keep playing the way you are playing. You are a force.”

“We’re saying all this, we haven’t played a game yet,” Friedgen acknowledged. “But I’ll tell you what: If he does in the games what he is doing now, he’ll get a lot of honors. We can’t block him.”
