Terps 'D' Not Holding Up Well

James Madison just strode 56 yards in six plays on a scoring drive that lasted all of 2:35. For all the success Maryland's offense is having, its defense is being equally faulty. The Terps' offensive drives are methodical and patient,...

Chris Turner: The Dink-And-Dunker

I had not taken a close look at the performance of Maryland’s wide receivers until a couple days ago. There was so much hype about the wide receivers in preseason camp. Against California, Adrian Cannon led the way with five...

It was difficult what to make out of quarterback Chris Turner’s showing against California because, well, he was often running for his life or on the ground before he could run for his life. But when Turner -- who completed...
