Predictions for Maryland-Morgan State game

With the Navy victory under their belts, the Terrapins can envision being at least 4-1 entering the bye week in early October. And frankly, Maryland needs to be 4-1 at that point. They should win Saturday by a comfortable margin. But it’s been a long time since they’ve won a game comfortably, so nothing is guaranteed, especially after a short week and an emotional game on Labor Day.

I see Da’Rel Scott and Davin Meggett each having runs of at least 25 yards. I see Jamarr Robinson with two touchdown passes and another strong game on the ground. I want to see if the defense can take the next step and whether Maryland can get its wide receivers into the mix. After some early stumbles, I see the Terps scoring a convincing victory against an overmatched foe, a win that will be forgotten by Tuesday.

Maryland 34, Morgan State 6

Anyone think this game will be a lot closer?

Terps finally get a blowout win: 42-7.

I predict another lack-luster performance, but Terps will win.

Then the Fridge will take the team out to McDonalds.

35-10 Terps, and O'Brien throws 2 TDs and puts some heat on Robinson's starting spot.

Would like to see 35-0 at halftime. Then rest your starters the second half. Let O'Brien start the entire second half.

If its not a blowout in every sense of the word, then I suspect that this board will be lit up after the game. If it is a blowout, it will prove nothing to the fans, although it may alow the coaches to work some kinks out. WVU is the next real test.

I predict 40+ - 14.

Terps win by 10-20 pts.

If MD wins in a blow out, then this team is different from last year's by a stretch and they most likely head to a minor bowl and Fridge's neck is saved for another year.

If they squeak by, then it is the same old s**t and we are staring at 4-5 wins and Fridge is gone.

In this context, it is a big game. BTW, I think Franklin is a horrible and predictable play caller. He is not doing Fridge any favors.

I'm with Prisbell and company.

This will be a good game for the Terps to test their depth and rest their starters. I also expect this to be a good opportunity to establish some rhythm in the passing game.

My prediction: Maryland 41 - Morgan State 6.

If Morgan State beats Maryland today, the Fridge will be moved into the basement and used to store fish bait. The Terps alums won't stand for such embarrassment.
