Your predictions for the Maryland-Clemson game

When you read this, I’ll be flying down to Charlotte, where I’m jumping into a rental car and driving to Greenville, S.C., where I’m staying the night before Maryland's game Saturday at Clemson. So let’s make this prediction brief: I think the Terrapins will offer a valiant effort against the Tigers and fare much better than they did in their first road game this season (a 31-17 loss at West Virginia on Sept. 18). But I’m not calling for the upset. This game means more to the Tigers, who are looking to avoid a four-game losing streak. It's a must-win situation, basically. The Tigers have too much talent to lose four in a row overall or a third straight game to Maryland. Not going to happen. The game that I have circled as a potential road victory for the Terrapins is the Boston College game, but we’ll get to that next week.

Clemson 30, Maryland 17

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Maryland 28, Clemson 21. Go Terps!

Late TD by the Terps (maybe another Tony Logan PR?) pulls out a 21-20 win. Let's go Terps!

Do I smell a 5-1 or do I smell doo-doo?

I recall the Terps played an ugly game during their last walk through Death Valley, with exception to the big reverse by DHB.

Clemson is 0-4?? I think the Terps have a good shot here.

And, Prisbell, given that the Terps are 4-1 and the Tigers are 0-4, how would it be an upset if the Terps won?

I smell no doo-doo! Terps win a close one, 17-14.

Great opportunity for a young Terp team on Sat. Blow-out loss at Morgantown will help them. Terps need to step up and grow up, and this could be the week. Besides, Clemson is notorious for making huge blunders late in games. And Ralph has had two weeks to prepare. That alone is an equalizer.

Terps win in a squeaker on a blocked field goal or blocked punt late and run back for a t.d. forcing number one Terp booster Eric Prisbell to eat is words; again!

Did anyone notice how bad Parker's arm looked on the hail mary attempts at the end of their last game? Hard to believe he has a major league arm based on those throws. Hopefully we can put some heat on him early in the game.

I have faith in Dabo that he will do something incredibly stupid. Name me the last winner of the Nobel Prize named Dabo. Exactly. Terps win 24-21.

Terps win 28-17 ude mainly to Clemson miscues. Both DOB and J-Rob throw for TDs extending the 2-QB approach.

And Poopy makes a return to the boards.

glad to have the old sirpelleas back!

Seems like everyone at least has the Terps beating the 14 point spread.

Hugh, Our friend Poopy sends his best wishes.

Unfortunately Barno1 has started an all-out smear campaign against our good friend Poopy. This includes false and baseless accusations and even outright lies. Why Barno1 is doing this only he can answer.

One could even ask Barno1 why is anti-American and spits on the 1st Amdendment of the Constitution.

What's ironic about Barno1's crusade against our buddy Poopy is that we've all witness, countless times, Barno1 voilating the Posts terms of service by insulting numerous posters he disagrees with. What more, Barno1 has even made anti-gay remarks on here.

Of course only Barno1 can answer as to why he's started his smear campaign against Poopy.

That said, Poopy does think the Terps should handle Clemson rather easily and he sends his well wishes to all.

ralph_melish:
Don't be so hard on Barno. One thing he can't stand is when people say stupid things, which Poopy did practically all the time. Even I got some cheap shots in on him.

Plus, if you read Barno's posts, he often points out where people have said certain things and then had to take them back. When GW won coach of the year last year, Barno made all those people like petecard and Poopy eat their words because all we ever heard fom those guys were "Gary needs to move on, he can't coach anymore, or he can't recruit, etc." Bottom line: if you say something on this post, you'd better stand by your words, because if you're wrong, we'll call you out on it.

Anyway, back to the game. This will not be a pretty game. If the Terps can force the Tigers into turning the ball over, we should come out ok. But this may be one of those games where it comes down to a field goal try.

Terps 19, Clemson 17

Smearing poopy? That's a double entendre, my friend! But like I said, I smell no doo-doo.

Terrapins Insider is the next great reality show.
