Maryland up 21-7 at halftime at Boston College

This was exactly the way Maryland needed to play in the first half of a critical game. The Terrapins are taking advantage of turnovers and sustaining drives. All three of their first half touchdown-scoring drives started in Boston College territory. Look, nobody expected Maryland to be able to run against the Eagles, who take away everyone’s running game. Quarterback Danny O’Brien has misfired on a couple passes, but overall he looks impressive. For a half, Maryland looks like it is ready to take the next step in its progression and snap that nasty 10-game road losing streak. We’ll see how the second half unfolds.

How about Antwine Perez? Two interceptions and a fumble recovery in the first half.

Thoughts?

Fridge and Franklin - 2 chokers!! They're about to choke one again and Franklin's BS offense is doing NOTHING in the second. Their minds are MUSH. They are not mentally tough under Fridge and he MUST GO!!

I have never seen a program struggle in wins like MD. We are such a weak program right now that it is so hard to watch - even in a win. Hope they pull it out, but Fridge and Franklin must go

Wow. Good stand by the D. Finally, a road win.

A tipped pass is the only reason this was close. We need to run on 1st down though.

Very good road win. I am quite happy to be wrong with my opinion that we would not win. Finally I think we can say we have a quarterback. Very solid game by Danny O'Brien. We may have been a little conservative in the second half, but the defense came up big at the end and the tip catch by BC is one of those flukes that just happen. That could have rattled the team but they played well after that. Didn't like the 4th down call with 2:00 minutes left and it was rushed as well. We needed to call time out there and call a play that was more likely to succeed. But chalk up the win. Even against a bad team it's a road win in the ACC.

Sorry haters. I know it hurts when the Terps win. Oh well. You can cheer against the Terps next week and hope they lose. 5-2!

5-2!

A solid win for the Terps. Fridge's comments about his players last week look like the did the trick. Great to see Petecard admit he was wrong in saying the Terps wouldn't win another game this season. You're right Pete, a win is a win. It doesn't matter whether you win by 3 or win 24-7.

The Terps did what they needed to do today and next week they need to take care of business at home against Wake. I expect a solid 45,000 person crowd for the homecoming game. Win next week and we are 6-2.

Viva the Fridge!

Take the win, and head home.. Please explain to me what we were thinking about going for it on 4th down.. If you want to put the dagger in, we should have thrown the bomb to Torrey on 1st down, had man to man coverage... Gave BC excellent field postion, have to feel a bit lucky at the end.. See y'all next week.. Tailgate starts at 9:30..

"Please explain to me what we were thinking about going for it on 4th down"

Assume you're talking about the final 4th down (we went for it on 4th a few times). Made perfect sense to me. We were on the BC 35 yard line on a 4th and 1 with 2 minutes left up by 3. I think every coach in America at every level would go for it right there knowing that if you get the 1 yard the game is over. If you don't get the yard, they only get the ball at their own 35 vs a punt where they have a good chance at getting a touchback and only net 15 yards. Great call, bad result. But still worked out fine as BC didn't even get a 1st down on the ensuing drive.
