An ugly first half for Maryland against West Virginia

So, we’ve seen a sloppy, turnover- and penalty-laden first half. We have also seen a mismatch -- 21-0 WVU is up.

West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith completed his first 10 passes – including three for touchdowns --- while Maryland quarterback Jamarr Robinson struggled to communicate with his center on consecutive plays.

West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin zigzagged and spun his way downfield – amassing 77 first-quarter yards – while Maryland struggled to gain a yard, much less a first down.

Which was worse, offense or defense?

And what should Maryland do at quarterback now that backup Danny O'Brien has been shaken up with that sack in the final minute of the half?

So much for this being a different Maryland football team. No pass rush, wide open opposing receivers, dumb penalties-- Maryland football is back!

Take the Terps +4 in second half. Vegas is favoring terps at the half. Also love Terps +.5 in 3rd quarter.

I'm getting this on a.m. radio but it seems the Mountaineers are getting good help from the officials. Still, it now seems our guys are their own worst enemies. What happened to the team the performed in games one and two?

Let's see, 28-0 now in the 3rd quarter. It's so predictably awful.

I want to see what O'Brien can do. We haven't given him a real chance yet.

I think we now know who Robinson is. Good runner, can throw the short pass and the bomb on occasion, but no consistency. And he does not see to be able to see the mid range part of the field. I can see 2 open receivers on TV and he manages to miss them. He should not be startubng for a major program. H is a good backup.

Not yet sure about O'Brien, but lets give him a try!

SirPelleas, Vegas (and I) was right. Terps won the second half and third quarter handily bro.
