Ten Things We Learned

Sorry this took me so long, but I got lost amid the chaos on campus and then grabbed some dinner.

1) Fans can call Chris Cosh a goat and a hero in the same game.

2) No team can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory like Clemson, which summed up the Tommy Bowden era in 60 minutes.

3) Getting Darrius Heyward-Bey the ball as often as possible and any way possible is a good idea.

4) Playing in the Gator Bowl (or better) is a legit possibility for Maryland.

5) Obi Egekeze likes streaks, both good and bad.

6) No one does football like the South.

7) It will be darn near impossible to pry the starting quarterback job from Chris Turner the rest of the season.

8) If anyone says they can figure out the ACC, they are wrong. There is no favorite.

9) Maryland-Virginia looks like an epic mismatch, which means it won’t be.

10) Fans calling for Ralph Friedgen’s head a few weeks ago are as quiet as Death Valley was mid-afternoon.

[Question: What does everyone want to me write about next week? Any good story ideas? I have a few, but I'm looking for one more.]

#9 is what I'll be worried about this week. I'm sure UVA will be peeved about getting drilled by d00k.

But at least we know we can win in a stadium full of orange...

Either yesterday's win will propel the Terps to the consistency found in 2006 (after a dramatic comeback vs UVa), or the Terps will fall back to the tired inconsistency.

It is all up to the players!

How about a story on Cosh, since he's been ripped since he's been here.

How about a story on Moten? If you look at the recruiting rankings his senior year for the state, a large number of players ended up at PSU including one of his teammates. Well, three years later Moten, a three star recruit, is arguably the best of the bunch. Ask him about attending the announcement for Antonio Logan-El at ESPNZone in Baltimore.

Story on Cosh long overdue...guy's job hangs by a thread

A couple of ideas:

1) How does Ralph explain the rash of injuries that have plagued his team seemingly by position? Last year it was O-line. This year it's the secondary. What does he think is going on?

2) What in the world has happened to UVA? Last year was the exception to the rule.

3) What is the structural reason behind MD's recent success? Is it more than emotion? If it is emotion, can the kids play on that for 8 more weeks?

4) What are the emotional bonds within this team? They seem pretty coherent. How does Ralph foster such a tight team bond?

Eric- definitely need a story about how MD is going to rebound/get revenge for last year's loss to UVA. Specifically, despite UVA's problems, the guy who almost single-handedly killed the Terps last year is still there- Mikell Simpson.

One story of interest would be the 2 divisions. It would seem to me that the Terp's side is much stronger with Clemson, FS, WF and BC with NCS the weak one.

Can we see a profile on some of the players that are starting to show good seasons? I would love to hear more about the line play (off. & def.) as well as guys who have stepped up this year. Thanks.

Cosh. People have been calling for his head for years(including myself). He deserves credit for making some great adjustments in the second half.

How about a story about the rivalry between Groh and Friedgen. They both went back to their alma maters the same year and they don't seem to like each other at all.
