Terps Ranked? Not So Fast
I know Matt is a little ill today, and his stance in his previous post reflects that. I’m a little sick as well, so maybe I didn’t read it correctly, but let’s be serious. Ranked? My reason why Maryland should not be ranked at this point is simple: The Terrapins lost to Middle Tennessee State, and they lost by 10 points. Yes, this is the same Middle Tennessee State team that lost to that great Arkansas State team, 31-14, on Sept. 20. Yes, this is the same Middle Tennessee State team that has one victory all season. And we know how they earned that lone victory, don't we?
Once again, I feel Maryland has as good a chance as any ACC team to win the league title. But I’m not ready to rank the Terps just three weeks after the Meltdown in Murfreesboro. As I said on the radio this morning, the loss to MTSU damages Maryland's resume more than the victories over Cal and Clemson bolster it. A win over Virginia, coupled with a few upsets across the country, and Maryland makes the cut next week. But the Terps are not ready for prime time just yet.
