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.

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
