Meggett TD Run Puts Terps Back On Top

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 by quarterback Dwight Dasher. His fumble set up Meggit's TD.

Maryland 14, Mid Tenn St 13 -- 1:19 remaining first half.

what an embarassing effort by the players and coaches. No one should say "good effort" because that was half-assed from top to bottom.

I am soo excited that our "Coach in waiting" is part of the coaching staff of this disgrace... this team is a joke.

Time to find a coach who can recruit. When Ralph was a winner he did it with Vanderlinden's guys, not his own.

Another ill informed comment on terp insider...what a shocker. Our recruiting is not even remotely the issue. We have recruited over 50 top 100 players in the nation at their position in the last 3 years alone. We have perhaps the most talented team in the Fridge era. The problem is they are 18, 19 year olds with no experience.

I have not given up on the season. We have had some pretty low moments early in the season before, namely 2002, 2003, 2006, 2008. All of those years we started out terribly and managed to regroup and challenge for the ACC title each season.

Granted, this is our worst start ever under Friedgen...but we said that last year too when we lost to MTS and look where we were in late November, on the verge of the acc title game.

Just be thankful we don't have any ACC games on the schedule until October. We get a clean start against Clemson in 2 weeks. We should have Bruce Campbell back by then and hopefully we will have replaced the defensive coordinator with Dave Sollazzo.

Barno1, you are the ill-informed one. Check out Ralph's record in his first few seasons with Vanderlinden's recruits (granted Vanderlinden coud not coach). Ralph has not been able to duplicate that success for years using his own recruits. Ralph is a nice guy who reversed the downward spiral of the program, but he simply cannot recruit well. Gary has similar problems, but seems to find a way to get more out of his lesser known recruits.

Collegedad, It is fruitless to argue with so called "no it all" barno the turd.He thinks he has all the answers.Well he does not. Ralph can not coach without previous talented recriuts. I will say again.Who wants that fat slob in there house to recruit there son.Will Franklin do the job? the jury is still out on that one.

Even the mention of clemson scares me. We will not score against them.

Early line vs rutgers is 2..Jump all over that one...

early line vs clemson??? 24

Fridge winning with Vanderlinden recruits...gee I seem to have heard that line before. Do you have any original thoughts of your own or do you just take other people's arguments and pawn them off as your own?

By the way, last I checked, Fridge won with these guys his first 3 seasons...NONE of whom were signed by Vanderlinden and nearly all made it to the NFL

Scott McBrien
Josh Allen
Dominique Foxworth
Shawn Merriman
D'Qwell Jackson
Randy Starks
Adam Podlesh
Vernon Davis
Stephen Heyer
Andrew Crummey
Rich Parson
Josh Wilson
Madieu Williams
Derrick Miller
Wesley Jefferson
Dre Moore

That's 16 reasons that prove you are wrong.
