Poll: How many games will Maryland win?
It is finally game week, even though Maryland doesn’t open the season until a week from today against Navy. I’ll ask for predictions on the Navy game Friday, so today we can open it up to season predictions. Look, it’s hard to imagine that the Terrapins won’t be improved this season. That said, I still have concerns about offensive line depth … a few questions about quarterback … and growing concerns about the kicking game. I’m eager to see improved and healthy running backs Da’Rel Scott and Davin Meggett and depth at wide receiver.
In the end, look for it all to translate into Maryland sitting right on the fence for a bowl game late in the season. There is a very good chance, in my view, that this team wins between four and seven games. It wouldn’t surprise me if things go poorly, injuries mount and the Terps win four. And it would not stun me at all if they win seven. But it will take quite a bit for them to win more than seven.
My prediction: 5-7, with wins over Morgan State, Florida International, Duke, Virginia, Wake Forest. Two games in non-conference play – Navy and West Virginia – are particularly daunting, although I expect Maryland to be competitive in both.
How do you see the season going?
