    2023 Maryland Football

    They have an unusually easy schedule. Some like that, I certainly do not. It detracts from their final record and reduces their chances of receiving national attention. They still play in the Big Tenís Eastern Division with annual meetings with Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Michigan State. But they havenít yet demonstrated they can beat any of those four - except under extenuating circumstances (e.g., at Penn State during the covid-shortened 2020 season and against the Spartans in 2022). As for the rest of their Big Ten schedule, they totally avoid the better programs (Iowa, Wisconsin, Purdue, Minnesota). So the absolute best case scenario is an 8-4 season (5-4 inside the conference) but no national ranking.

    FWIW opening win over Towson (my alma mater) is third straight game Terps have not surrendered a TD. It includes the bowl game victory over NC State - the only significant opponent (after Rutgers).

    Nice win, looked like a good crowd too. Glad to see the student section filled up and rowdy. Cool of Coach Locksley to not run up the score against his alma mater.
