Time Keeps on Ticking Away
What do Southern Methodist, Oregon and San Diego State have in common? They are the only teams in the country that rank worse than Maryland nationally in time of possession.
Now, we know part of the reason for this, and it is not necessarily a bad thing. Maryland often scores too quickly. Darrius Heyward-Bey is one of the reasons why.
When Maryland does score quickly, an already inconsistent Maryland defense then takes the field again, becomes fatigued faster and goes from inconsistent to non-effective. How big of a concern is this? Or should Maryland’s offense score as quickly as it can?
For what it’s worth, North Carolina is 102nd in time of possession. Among teams ranked 110 or worse, only Missouri and Oregon are having decent seasons.
