University of Maryland

The season has a bit of a different feel to it after last week’s disappointment, but there is still a chance to have a pretty decent season. For that to happen, we’ve absolutely got to beat the fat guy on Saturday. Last time we played the Terps, we came up just short and we have not beaten Maryland since 2000. They were embarrassed by Clemson at home last week after Ralph accidentally guaranteed expected a win, so both teams have something to prove or, um, disprove.

Keys to the Game:

1. Score more points.

2. Figure out pass protection. I’m don’t have any idea exactly what happened, but T.J. has had little time to find anyone recently. Clemson just ran the ball down Maryland’s throat, but I doubt we will be able to do that. I think we do have the talent to move the ball through the air, but the last few weeks are very concerning….especially considering Erin Henderson will be on the other side of the line.

3. Win the game with our D. The Terps have injuries on their offensive line and will probably try and establish the run early. We’ve got to continue the progress and see if the defense can win a game for us for the first time in years.

Info: 3:45 ESPNU, UNC is favored by 2

Prediction: UNC 24-21 Maryland
