The Maryland Terrapins shocked UNC 88-85 in overtime today.  Shell Games is live in College Park, MD, where fans have spilled onto the streets.

The scene here is chaotic.  Maryland students stormed the court, busted windows in the Comcast Center, and took to the streets setting late model American cars ablaze across this college town.

Damage at the corner of Rte. 1 and Knox Rd is so severe it can only be described as a midieval scene.

This blogger is in disbelief.  I cannot describe my emotions at a moment like this.  I can only think to say…

LETS GO MARYLAND!

Fok me? No, fokou! Maryland wins the Mud Bowl

Some games are considered ugly because of mistakes that are made. Some are ugly because of dirty play. Some are ugly because of a lack of offense. Yesterday’s game between Maryland and UNC was mistake filled on both sides of the ball, dirty in a literal sense, and showcased little offense from either side. It was wet, sloppy, messy, and ugly.

An ugly win for the Terps is still a win, and yesterday’s 17-15 victory over #16 UNC was a big one. Da’Rel Scott was once again the rock, bringing consistency to the ground game with 129 yards and a TD on the ground. His effort kept the UNC offense off the field for most of the day. Chris Turner once again managed to accomplish the improbable in leading the Terps on another game winning drive. Turner improved to 5-0 against ranked teams in his career.

The defense bent but did not break. Moise Fokou led the team in tackles, and on a day where it was hard to get a good hold on anything he repeatedly came-up with drive stoppers, including three solo efforts. After UNC got out to a quick start off a Maryland safety and a FG drive within the first five minutes, the D settled down and kept the Terps in the game.

This game was up for grabs and the Terps took it. It’s tough to blame either side for their slip-ups considering that they were playing in a driving rain and on a swampy turf. An ugly win is a win, and we’ll take it.

As a side note, Josh Portis once again proved to be useless. I think he needs to stay on the bench for the rest of the year and learn the offense. The Terps are lucky that his fumble didn’t cost them the game.

terps field hockey administers a very casual university beat down

Cheers Susie!

Cheers Susie!

The Maryland field hockey squad closed out a 15-2 regular season with a 10-0 win over VCU on a senior night in which all five seniors scored.  The victory means Maryland finishes the regular season ranked #1.  They have the top seed in the ACC tournament and are on a roll going into the post-season.

Senior back Susie Rowe, a UK import, had two goals and two assists.  The performance led her to a second ACC Player of the Week award in 2008.

The game marked the end to a dominant regular season for the team in which they beat opponents by more than five goals a total of eight times.  The team also recorded eight shutouts.  They are getting it done on both sides of the field, and finished the year with six wins in a row.  Many of those wins came against big programs including ODU, Penn, and UNC.

The Terps should be playing home games in the NCAA tournament on 11/15 and 11/16. Cheers to Susie Rowe, Katie O’Donnell, and the rest of the team on a great season. We look forward to a run at the title.
