Big, Big Ten Assumption, Part 3 …
Maryland is AWFUL.
What’s the line? When someone shows you who they are, believe them?
It’s easy to see how Indiana can roar back from its rocky performance and roar by a Rutgers team that might have outkicked its coverage a bit. It’s even easy to assume that Penn State might have the talent to keep Ohio State from rolling at will on Saturday night.
This just might be Maryland football.
Maryland has lost its eight games going back to last year, and seven of the last nine defeats were by 24 points or more. But it’s more than that.
This Terp offense hasn’t hit 17 points in six games and hasn’t scored more than 17 in nine of its last 11 dates.
Northwestern is going to be okay in a rebound year, but 43-3 good?
The Terps managed just 207 yards of total offense, was awful on third downs, and couldn’t get anything going with the passing game down the field.
Oh yeah, the Terp defense. If Northwestern could run for 325 yards, and Indiana transfer Peyton Ramsey could take target practice with an easy 212-yard day, then Maryland, welcome to a Rashad Bateman, Mo Ibriahim, and the Minnesota skill guys looking to roll on Friday night after last week’s rough evening against Michigan.
