With Penn State two weeks out, it's wise to not overlook Temple. Good to see the Terps in the right mind-set.

Syracuse looked past MD to the Clemson game next week.

Syracuse looked past MD to the Clemson game next week.   

Did they? Or was Maryland just that much better? I saw a much more athletic and faster team in MD.

This Temple game will be a big test for the team to prove they are for real because it will be there first game.

It's hard to watch this offense and not think they are not for real because of all the weapons in both the run game and passing game. Josh Jackson is the first legitimate QB MD has had in a long, long time. 

The defense is where my questions still are even though they only gave up 20 points to Syracuse. 

Either way, I thin they win big against Temple. I have my tickets to the Penn stat game already!

Agree completely.  Our D-Line and overall D needs improvement but the O looks very strong. This Temple game should be a real test, but getting a W is paramount to keeping the positive momentum moving forward.

Yep, this is where coaching will come into things. Locksley has to make sure his team doesn't start to believe the hype and overlook Temple while focusing on Penn State. First road game also will make things interesting. 

CBSSports has Temple rated #51 with Syracuse dropping to #45 and Maryland only at #25.

This should not be a push over game, but if the Maryland we saw during the first two games show up they should win.

This is future Tony. You are being fooled! Don't be fooled. It's the same 'ol same 'ol. Don't buy those tickets! Penn State will destroy them and the only fun you will have is the tailgate. Oh, and by the way, don't get to the gate 20 minutes before the game because it will take the incompetent Terp Stadium people 45 minutes to get you through and you'll miss Penn State whooping the Terps in the 1st qtr.

    • I have to be honest and admit that I hated the Jackson pick. I didnt think Jackson was or could be a good passer. I am really impressed with his growth as a player. I also thought he was predisposed to running 1st. I am impressed with where we are as a team and much of that is because of the elite athletic ability of Lamar. I still think he's exposed to a cheap shot by a defensive player too often and think a leg injury will end his career. but I am enjoying where we are and the way the team is playing!
    • Thought it would be interesting to look at what people are thinking now.
    • Our defense was key in this victory! Great game by the team and Mr Jackson and his offense. Our defense will be a top 5 before the season is over
    • I think the answer to all these game polls going forward have the same answer.
    • Does anyone else think this 2019 team is a better team than either of our Super Bowl winning teams?      
    • In the 1920s the International League Orioles were probably among the top 10 professional teams in the world.  Jack Dunn refused to sign affiliation agreements.  He had all stars and Hall of Fame caliber players in their prime.  But eventually he was pressured by the rest of the league into caving.  The PCL made a little run in the 1950s at going independent and hinting a going major, but expansion and the Dodgers and Giants put an end to that.  Besides the relatively low-level indy leagues today there haven't been real minor league pennant races in my lifetime.
    • It's premature to say that the MLB draft is moving to August.  MLB wants to move it after the College World Series.  Some have speculated that August makes sense as a date in August would eliminate the need for short-season A teams.   Logically, it makes no sense to mandate which minor league teams will be axed although "leaking" a list may encourage towns on the fence to up their facilities.  How up to date are the facilities in Frederick? It location is great.  Organizations such as the Orioles/Astros that are big on machine learning, regression models, and neural networks are more likely to be on board with this plan while organizations such as the Cubs/Yankees that have the resources to have a more balanced approach may have  misgivings. During the past season the Cubs had 300 players under control.  This new plan would lessen that number by at least 100.  Youngsters that are unable to make the jump from the DSL or HS to full-season ball may stay at their respective complexes and play unofficial games against other organizations throughout the summer as opposed to until the draft as in past years.  One advantage is that it will be easier to evaluate prospects with fewer non-prospects in the mix, although you could argue that 20-year old prospects benefit from playing with 25-year old non-prospects who know the little things but have limited tools. The great statistics put up by top prospects during their first ML seasons in recent years suggests that top prospects may be spending too much time in the minors.  More rapid promotion for a select few is likely with a thinner pool of players.  It is also possible that AAA will be more like AA is today, i.e., the place for top prospects.   Independent leagues comprised of released players could fill the role that AAA has today - although this will depend on the details of the next ML agreement.  I've also heard that some teams would prefer a shorter season so that their prospects could spend more time in their respective pitching/hitting labs.
