Terps: Good or Bad? You Decide

Eric gave you choices yesterday. I want to force decisions. The problem with this poll is the correct answer ("neither of the above") is not a choice. But at the same time, this is essentially what everyone is trying to decide about the Terps more than halfway through the season. So ...

This one is easy - a pretty bad that rises to the occasion sometimes may have one or two good upsets, but not beat 3 ranked teams in a season.

On the flip side, you continue to rant about Virginia being a horrible loss and a bad opponent. The evidence says otherwise. Virginia just took care of business against a hot UNC team.

The shutout loss to UVA is still unbelievable...but so is the shutout win vs. Wake. Jeckyll/Hyde performances.

Lets hope for the rest of the year, its the team that showed up to play Wake is the team we see the next 5 regular season games, the ACC championship in December, and the Orange Bowl in January.

NC State - 27
Maryland - 10

Maryland will finish with a 5-7 record.

I am extremely happy that Penn State is ranked number 3 in the country - and very soon to be ranked number one --- this will definitely hurt Maryland's recruiting - thank god !!!

I am happy that Maryland is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

Jelani Jenkins, Travis Hawkins and Isaac Holmes will be signing with the University of Florida.

Go Tar Heels

Maryland and Gary Williams - get crushed on the recruiting trail - again:

City College forward C.J. Fair committed to Syracuse yesterday, according to Baltimore Stars official Troy Franklin.
Fair, a 6’7 junior, is rated the No. 45 player in the 2010 class by

Hey GARY are you aware that Md. never offered a scholarship to C.J. Fair---You are enjoying a phantom victory as usual.

Another response to PSU Gary. Penn State has a fine season but just doesn't rate anywhere close to Top three. Dream on.

Not to get sidetracked, but who exactly has Penn State beaten this season? Big 10 is pretty bad this season.

Has to be a pretty good team that plays down to it's competition. After the Cal and Clemson upsets there is no reason Wake wouldn't be coming to the game Saturday ready to play and they were absolutely manhandled. Can't really say the Terps are sneaking up on anyone, except for Cal earlier, they've beaten 5 ranked teams in a row. That said they love to get 'snuck up on'....

Several weeks earlier you said that the TERPS would beat the Cavaliers, because Virginia was a bad football team.
The way you phrase today's question, you continue to refer to U. Va. as a bad football team.
Just to refresh your memory, over the last three weekends, U. Va. beat the TERPS, beat E.C. U, and beat the same Tar Heel team that was ranked - and had beaten Notre Dame.

Big ten is bad "this season"? Try every season. Big ten has 4 teams that are never good. Four Dukes. Man I wish the ACC had four Dukes....
