Prediction Time

Maryland might be 2-7, but I am 6-3 in my predictions for this wacky team. And I am thisclose to being 8-1! A play here, a play there.

Call me crazy, but I think Maryland has a chance in this one. Let’s not forget that Virginia Tech has also had a disappointing season in the sense that it will not reach the Orange Bowl or play for the national championship. What’s the motivation for the Hokies in this one?

I think the new quarterback (Jamarr Robinson) will provide an emotional shot in the arm for the Terrapins. That’s no slight to Chris Turner, who is still a better quarterback at this time than Robinson. But a new look can’t hurt at this point. And Robinson’s scrambling ability will certainly help.

I think Virginia Tech will be blah offensively. The Hokies will get an offensive score or two, and they’ll likely get a defensive score and/or special teams score. As for Maryland, the Terrapins should have a difficult time sustaining drives against this defense.

Keep in mind that Maryland scored two offensive touchdowns in the first half of the N.C. State loss and none after Robinson took over under center late in the second quarter. And this was against a poor Wolfpack defense.

Virginia Tech will win, 24-10.

A better question is this: Which will be greater – Virginia Tech’s point total or Charleston Southern’s turnover total tonight against Maryland’s men’s basketball team?

I'm going to call it 42-16 Va Tech, and the 42 will all come before the end of the 3rd quarter. Mercifully, Beamer lets up on the throttle to spare Fridge the shame of getting more than 50 scored on him.

How can you say VT will only get 24? I went to VT, and I am about as pessimistic as they come about this offense and the OC Steinspring. But with that said, against this Maryland defense, and with all the turnovers VT will force, they have to put up more than 24. How is Maryland going to stop Ryan Williams? I expect a big day out of him, and at least 28 points out of the offense, even though Tyrod has looked bad and the offensive coordinator should be fired.

Terps by 10. Everyone in the ACC sucks. Maybe not GTech, but everyone is beatable depending on the week.

This game will be a joke just like this season. Next season will be a disaster as well.
What you people will never understand is ACC football is a joke.You thought adding teams from a bygone era would make the confrence "real". That is the same move the Redskins use... way overpaying for past resumes and soaking rich,stupid government workers and loyal "homies" for the overpriced tickets.
Beamer is a "wanabe",he gets a$1,000,000 bonus for a national title (read his contract)that's why he still tries to win.He recruits thugs from Tidewater Va. but still chokes in "helmet" games and always will...that's just the way it is.
This game will be ugly. A wet field, a team with below average players, coaches who are just working for a paycheck to live in an overpriced area. The fans are really getting bent over,the DC area has always thought it was a great sports town it's not. You have Juan Dixon's title Bob Dandridge's title and Mark Rypien beating a perienial loser...the Bills...that's it!
So take tomorrow's beating for what it's worth...another meaningless waste of time.

Wow Johnny P....nice outlook. Have fun curling up in a dark corner listening to Sinead O'Connor this weekend, wishing the grey clouds of life didnt follow you wherever you go.
