As a Maryland fan i feel out LB group is going to shock alot of people with our athleticism. Look out for Matt Robinson 6'4 240 runs about 4.66/40, but he was a Safety about 2 years ago. he can cover Slot Wide outs Te,s , Rbs and blizt the passer. He is do it all guy. Goree is classic Weak Side back Will guy. We have some kids who can play i would place us at #4. All our linebackers have alot of playing experience too. Even our back ups like Alex Twine AKA THE HEAD HUNTER. This guy is like a rocket shot out of a cannon he is a special teams leader and ace. We have a backup guy Abner Logan the guy is built like Robo Cop 6'1 235 4.4 /40 like 5% body fat. Hits like Barry bonds on an Angry day, only bad thing for us is he is going to miss 6 games Because he had some off the field issues. Cole Farrand is our LEader at backer Classic down hill middle linebacker 6'3 245 4.7 comes to play 100 tackles a year type of guy.
We are a 3/4 team so we also have Lb pass rushers Ngakoue, Yannic is a big time high 4 star recruit for us in 2013, he is a true sophmore now. 6'2 250 and can get to the Qb and Lay the wood. Cudjoe-Virgil, Yannik is our other pass rushing LB 6-2 255 senior was having an out standing year , before season ending injury. Dude is a beast pass rusher. SO yeah Maryland has about 6-7 linebackers who can be alot of damage. A good mix of speed will Linebackers, Classic Middle Backers And 3/4 NFL type pass rushers. We also have an Aggressive Defensive coach in Steward who coaches in the NFL with the Cowboys and Texans and loves to make Qbs lives a living nightmare.Our secondary is pretty green. We have Will Likely who is 5'8 but plays about 6'1. Florida kid speed, tough athletic, he is also a very good kick return. Who averaged about 29 yards a kick return. He is a True Sophomore.#2 Is Jeremiah Johnson Senior Cb not a flasy cb, more of a solid technical CB. 4.5 speed#3-5 are about the same solid guys but not testedAt Free Safety we have a ALL Big ten candidate Sean Davis is tall, 6'1 had very good instincts and gets to the football, had over 100 tackles. He is a Jr.At Strong Safety We have Anthony Nixon a solid safety good athlete JrSpecial teams kick returner we have a SPoil of riches, Diggs, Will Likely, Taivon Jacobs, Veii (speed Rb) Lerverne Jacobs, DeAndre LAne (a speed 5'7 Wide out)PUnt returner we have either Will Likely or Diggs again.Kicker is solid, Punter is ok. There you go the 2014 Maryland Terps.

ProjectBucky wrote: Sounds a little pie in the sky to me - you're basically telling us that you are loaded. You have no average players on offense and your linebackers are most similar to the 49ers. I know that you've had the injury bug, but this is still a Maryland team that went 7-6 in the ACC last year and 4-8 the year before. I don't understand how you give up 34 to Wake Forest if you are that strong at LB with a solid DL.Against winning FBS teams last year Maryland ranked 71st defensively giving up almost 450 yes per game. People seem super high on your QB but statistically he was pretty average. Completion %58.9 72nd in the country and passer rating 135.89 55th in the country. Both of those numbers are worse than Wisconsins starting QB Joel Stave. You gave the guy a 7/10 on accuracy, but the numbers don't seem to back that up. Now obviously he can also run, but is he a better passer than a guy like TMart?

Let alone at PSU. Those two teams played ea. Other quite regularly before PSU joined the big 10. Care to guess for all time how many times MR has beaten PSU? Look it up cuz. It ain't pretty. I actually think if MY steals one it will be at Iowa ccuz.imo I believe Iowa is still a Lil overrated. Go Badgers!!!---------------------------------------------How does what happened 25+ years ago between PSU/Maryland have any bearing on the 2014 season? My concern with PSU is they have zero depth on the oline, they lose a guy or two and things could unravel really quickly.

Badger89 wrote: Actually Project Bucky it has a lot to do with it from 25 yrs. Ago. For a few simple reasons: the first being the answer to my question:once and only once in their entire history of playing each other did Maryland beat PSU. And the other reason: in all the ensuing years PSU has remained very strong and a solid program to a well above average program whereas MD. Has remained absolutely bad to even dreadful. So yes with that kind of history, one can not pick MD to win esp. At PSU and esp. How each team is trending right now. GO BADGERS!

I didn't get to see Brown or Diggs, unfortunately, but if they're healthy you should have a solid offense. We've also gone to a 3-4 defense under DC Dave Aranda.

Brutal conference schedule against foes they are predominantly unfamiliar with.BTW, Iowa is the last place I'd predict a Maryland win. Highly questionable if Wisconsin wins at Iowa this year!

Football wise board. hoopsgalore wrote: I wouldn't bank a Maryland win over Indiana quite yet.A friendly tip. Intelligent sports fans (if that's not an oxymoron) know that the message boards and fans opinions have absolutely nothing to do with the outcome on the fields of play. Personally, I've laughed at the "Indiana is really dangerous" type of claims. At this point, the argument that they're better under Wilson requires optimism because at least at this point the facts don't support it. He's got a worse winning percentage than 6 of the last 7 IU coaches:CoachSeasonsWin %Wilson30.278Lynch40.388Hoeppner20.391DiNardo30.229Cameron50.327Mallory130.466 And being in the same division as Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State & Penn State isn't going to make things any easier. Maybe Wilson will end up turning the program around. But I sure wouldn't bet my own money on it.
