Smith Earns ACC Specialist Honors

Maryland’s Torrey Smith was voted the ACC’s specialist of the week. Smith had an 85-yard kickoff return against Wake Forest on Saturday. He totaled a career-high 194 yards on six returns (he got plenty of opportunities, that’s for sure). Smith also caught a career-high 10 passes. He had 267 all-purpose yards, the second-highest total of his career. He ranks first nationally in all-purpose yards (236.7).

On another note, kicker Nick Ferrara has also done a great job. He made a 50-yard field goal Saturday, he won the James Madison game with a field goal, and he has handled punting duties in the absence of Travis Baltz.

Who is your MVP at the season's midpoint?

Hey c'mon Terp fans, we can still go undefeated the rest of the way and make it to the Papa Johns Capital One Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl played at Huntingtown High School.

Stay positive fans!!!

How does it work? They need to win 6 games (so four more) to be lower-tier bowl eligible, right? And they need to finish at least 8th overall in the ACC, correct? Its a tough road, and I think the odds are against them making it at this point.

I know you sneer at the lower tier bowls (poopy), but all the programs end up going to them at some point. Unfortunately, it has been our lot for the last few years. A lower-tier bowl is better than no bowl at all, thats for sure.

Did you see the shot of Yow sighing on the sideline behind Friedgen?

Hugh, that's not correct. They just need six wins and are almost guaranteed a bowl game. It might not be one of the ACC tie-in games if they are rated below other ACC teams, but since they are from a BCS conference, they will likely beat out some smaller school teams also on the cusp of bowl eligibility.

Last year, I think San Jose State and one or two other bowl eligible 6-6 teams from minor conferences did not get bowl invitations. NC State, with the same record, did.

Well, at least a couple of players are making contributions.

Yes, it was quite odd. She was standing literally 2 inches behind him shaking her head after a bad play. Not cool.
