Maryland's Pete White expected to start at right guard

By Eric Prisbell

No trouble getting on campus today. There just aren’t many people around. Expect a crowd of 33,000-38,000, I think.

A quick note before the game: Redshirt freshman Pete White is expected to make his first career start at right guard in place of injured Justin Lewis, who hurt his knee in the first half of Saturday’s loss to Florida State.

Eric, how bout reporting on the fact that representatives from the Peach Bowl and Champ Sports bowls were in attendance today and impressed by our performance? Oh....that's right...you won't report that because you'll stand by your absolutely ridiculous claim that we are "destined" to go to the Military Bowl.

I have always defended you Eric against the attacks on this site. But I can't defend your reporting anymore. You have been needlessly critical of this team this year and have baited the fans repeatedly--yes, baited--by continuing to make ludicrous assertions.

There is virtually ZERO chance we will play in the Military Bowl. And when we get chosen for a more prestigious bowl, rest assured I will quote all your arrogant proclamations about the Military bowl warmly and accurately.

Yes, some of us haven't forgotten your comment about how "amusing" it was to you that Terps fans thought we weren't going to the Military bowl. I can't wait to make you eat those words Eric.

Here's what "real" college football experts are saying about the Terps bowl destination:

Terps in a sunny Florida bowl game against the 2nd best team in the Big East. Funny, no mention of the Terps in the Military Bowl by these experts.

Barno, the Orange Bowl was also at the game (the O.B. Rep gave me one of their logo stickers at the MGN tailgate) but the O.B. wasn't there scouting us...

This Military Bowl thing has gotten pretty ridiculous. Sure...a 7-5 Md team that had no quality wins to its credit was a likely candidate...and I wasn't going to argue otherwise. However, an 8-4 Md team that finished the season beating a quality, ranked opponent will not be put in the last place ACC bowl. I'm sure the Military would love to have Md but it's not happening. Even if other bowls decline Md, Fridge will decline the Military and try to set something up with the Hunger Bowl, where Maryland would face either Nevada or Boise State. I think his comments about "fighting like hell" for a good bowl should Md beat NC State were a veiled suggestion that he's not accepting a Military bid...he did this a couple of years ago too so it certainly seems he's not keen on playing in that bowl. It's really not fair for the kids to have to play 10 miles down the road...dollar sense or not...given the season they've had. For what it's worth CBS' updated Bowl projections have a WVU-MD rematch in the Champs Bowl.

8-4 should get us real consideration for something other than the local game. We can always go there some other time with a 6 or 7 win season. Even if it's nowhere super special it's just nice for the team to get a trip somewhere I think. I've been just hanging back shaking my head at the commentary on here in recent weeks by people who are unable to make any distinction between the various bowl games. For those of us who remember when the bowls all had real names and everyone knew the many levels of prestige distinctions it is pretty sad that now some people just think all "non-BCS" bowls are all the same.

Where's TerpFanMA? Is he calling Ron VanderLoser to rescue the program? Is he hoping that we can get Temple on the schedule again? Great win by the Terps--best D-1 turnaround in the country in 2010.

As much as I respect the military and what it stands for there is no way the Terps are the worst eligible bowl team out of the ACC and should land in that bowl. We wont know where they will be headed for a while but I agree with the comment if we drop that low they should fight like hell to play in the Hunger Bowl and play a team like Boise or Nevada. Heck with that scenario forget the other bowls that would be fun win or lose.

Pete White = SJC! SJC! SJC!

Maryland will win

Pete White should have been starting long before now. The results are in. When is Maryland going to wake up? This kid is good. I wish we had him in Hokie Nation.
