Terps Good at Rebounding
Maryland may suffer setbacks from time to time, but the Terrapins are nothing if not resilient. After the last five regular season losses, dating back to last season, Maryland has answered with a victory. It is easier to beat these guys once than it is to keep them down.
“I hope that stays true,” Ralph Friedgen said. “I think we have good kids who probably respond in adverse situations. When things get going good, most people tend to relax. I don’t know. But I am glad they respond. I have said it a number of times, I like this team. I am glad they went out today and right from the get-go [played well].
“They were giving me grief about putting too much clothes on. I said I am getting old. We had a couple fights, a couple guys trash talking to each other. They had a good time out there today. I like when they have a good time. They had fun. It was not drudgery out there. Sometimes when you come off a tough loss it can be drudgery. I have tried not to make it that way.
“I am sure they feel the same way, that they want to get that taste our of their mouths. As disappointed as I was after the Virginia Tech game, we still control our own fate. We have to play smarter, more physical and better. The season is far from over. I told them Monday that we prepared 365 days to be in this position, to have a chance to win the conference championship. You win three games and you win it. But you have to win the first one. This is what we work for the whole year, to be in this position. Now is not the time to worry about it and tighten up. Now is the time to go out and play your best.”
The last time Maryland lost a second consecutive regular season game? Nov. 3, 2007, at North Carolina, 16-13.
Will the Terps lose two in a row?
