Terrapins Insider: September 13, 2009 - September 19, 2009

What Changes Would You Make?

Just finished my game story for the newspaper. Wow. It looks like this Maryland team is headed for a five-win season or something even worse. No easy games left on the schedule. And they've struggled in the games that were...

Sophomore running back Davin Megget scores from one yard out to give Maryland a one-point lead with 1:19 remaining in the first half. The Terps have been turnover-prone so far, but managed to capitalize on a Mid Tenn State turnover...

Blue Raiders Score, Extra Point Blocked

It seemed Maryland would escape a Chris Turner interception deep in their own territory, but instead, Mid Tenn St quarterback Dwight Dasher scored on a four-yard rush. The extra point was blocked, allowing Maryland to maintain a one-point lead. Mid...

Carroll to Handle Coin Toss

Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said cornerback Nolan Carroll, who is lost for the year with a broken leg, will handle the coin toss duties Saturday. Maryland could really use Carroll on the field against Middle Tennessee, but his presence may...

Make Your Predictions

The way I see this game, Middle Tennessee quarterback Dwight Dasher is the key. If Dasher plays like Joe Craddock did in last season’s 24-14 victory over Maryland, MTSU has a great chance to win. But Dasher threw three interceptions...

Tate/Wiseman Likely to Return Punts

Ten reporters gathered for Ralph Friedgen’s post-practice media session Wednesday evening, but not much came out of it. I did ask Friedgen about the punt return situation, and he said that Tony Logan (shoulder) has been practicing all week but...

Poll: Who Will Win?

Maybe I am in the minority here, but I think this is a fascinating matchup Saturday. I could see either team winning. And MTSU should whip the ball around and there should be big plays on both sides of the...

Friedgen Wants to Cut Down on Penalties

During today’s news conference, I asked a few people about specific penalties in the James Madison game because there was some uncertainty in the hours after Maryland’s 38-35 overtime victory. Specifically, in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter,...

And the Band Played On?

Through dogged reporting and around-the-clock digging, it has come to my attention that there is some fan concern over whether Maryland’s student band created too much noise at times when the Terrapins were on offense. This blog post is not...

The First Two Games in One Word

Maryland is 1-1. But everyone sees the first two weeks of the season differently. For some, there is more reason for optimism. For others, there is more reason for concern. Is the glass half-empty, half-full, or is the glass already...
