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?
