Bowl Projections

Before I post these bowl predictions from around the country, let me first say that no one knows how this will play out, especially after the first 10 games have unfolded. But I like to look at these predictions to get a sense of the national perception of Maryland week to week.

Stewart Mandel at Sports Illustrated says Maryland will win the ACC and play Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl.

Sportsline.com has Maryland in the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando to play Minnesota.

Mark Schlabach of ESPN says Maryland will play Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl, while Bruce Feldman predicts Maryland vs. Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl.

Matt Hayes of the Sporting News has Maryland vs. Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl.

These people were ALL predicting last week that North Carolina would win the conference and go to the Orange Bowl. Thus, their projections are worthless.

Their predictions are worthless because situations change?

Maryland will play Navy in the 1st Eagle Bowl. Oh boy.

Man, I would love love LOVE a Maryland/Minnesota matchup. Stupid gophers. It'd make my day to see the Terps run roughshod over the little rodents.

Right now, though, the matchup seems beneath them.

Lee26:
I'm a fan, not a hater. I entered that projection with a smile and nod to the absurdity of projections. I think a bowl game Dec 20 at drafty old RFK is awful. Sorry my post was misinterpreted. I'm pulling for Terps all the way.

erniegogo,
Good stuff. Yeah that bowl is terrible and it looks like it might be where UVA is headed. . . :)

Maryland - WVU in Charlotte. It ain't the Orange Bowl, but at least I could go to the game.

If they don't make the the Orange bowl, I would love to see them play Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl.

I would kind of enjoy beating up on West Virginia for old times sake...
