Ask and you shall receive. Well, I asked for a victory in Death Valley and I received one. Although things did not look promising after the first half where the Terps looked left for dead going into halftime down 17-6. The defense allowed close to 200 yards rushing and Spiller and Davis looked "un-tackle-able".

Things turned around though, was it a pep talk by the coach at the half? Was it a veteran leader stepping up and getting his team riled up? Or perhaps it was the realization that there was still a chance to steal a game on the road and set the tempo for the ACC season.

Heyward-Bey ripped off a 76 yard sprint to shift the momentum and countless receivers contributed with 6 different guys getting into the action. One interesting thing to note, Heyward-Bey did not account for a reception in the game.

What exactly happened to the Clemson offense in the 2nd half? They had zero points and did not pose much of a threat after halftime. I know for one thing for sure though, the Terp's d showed some heart and passion. Personally, I love the linebacking group that lines up every game. The secondary has it's moments as well.
Who deserves the gameball for this game? Well I think it has to be split between Chris Turner for showing poise and accuracy and also the defense for stepping up to the challenege in the second half and slowing down a dyanic running duo.
Now let's carry on this momentum to an inferior team, the Wahoos of Virginia or whatever they call themselves these days.

Gary Sick of hearing of GUS

Just a quick note to pass along, in a recent article in the Post, Gary Williams was talking about the new freshmen Steve Goins who was cleared to play early in the week. Steve Yanda was reporting on the the story and asked about Gus Gilchrist.

When asked whether Gilchrist's departure had anything to do with Goins' decision
to come to Maryland, Williams replied thusly: "This has nothing to do with Gus
Gilchrist. I'm tired of hearing about Gus Gilchrist. He was never here. Steve
Goins came here because he wanted to play basketball at the University of

It seems that Gary is a little sensitive about the whole Gus Gilchrist situation. A situation that I am still unclear of what exactly took place.

Fast Start in the ACC is CRUCIAL

So here we are, the start of the ACC season for the Terps and what should we expect? Well for one, a lot of balance. The preseason favorite, Clemson was ranked #9 in the preseason polls and was just as quickly knocked out of the rankings by 'Bama. Other perennial teams like Virignia Tech, Florida State and Miami aren't going to scare anyone this season. Wake Forest looks like the strongest of the bunch at this point.

So what does this all mean? Well a FAST start in the ACC is CRUCIAL. Convienantly enough the Terps ACC season starts with the orange and purple of Clemson in Death Valley, the preseason favorite. So what better way to prevent the 1-4 ACC start of last season rearing its ugly head once again this season than to defeat Clemson in Death Valley.

The key to the game will be to slow down the combo of Spiller and Davis, while getting Green and Scott rolling for the Terps.

In my opinion, The Terps ACC schedule is pretty friendly outside of the Thursday night clash in Blacksburg against the Hokies of VT. The ACC is definitely up for the grabs and if the offense that appears against CAL and Eastern Michigan appears more than the offense that was present for Delaware and Middle Tennessee State, then the Terps should do just fine. However, if it doesn't it could be a long season.

Once again, a fast start is crucial especially against preseason favorite Clemson.


Steve Goins officially Joins Terps!

Steve Goins, the 6'10'' Chicago native have officially been cleared to join the Maryland Men's basketball team for the upcoming season, as reported by the Diamondback.

Goins will be the 12th player under scholarship for the Terps, leaving one spot open for the upcoming season. It has been rumored that Korean player Jin Soo Kim will be that player once he is also cleared for eligibility by the NCAA.

Steve Goins averaged 14 points and 11 rebounds in his final high school season. Goins will be listed as the tallest player on the Terp's roster and will have to help bolster a depleted frontcourt. Braxton Dupree and Jerome Burney figure to get the majority of the minutes.
Goins is thought to be a raw talent as of right now, but the Terps will definitely need some minutes from the big guy.
It will be interesting to see how the Terps starting lineup shakes out as of now. If they want to go small, I could see the lineup looking like this:
C Braxton Dupree
F Lance Milbourne
F Cliff Tucker
G Greivis Vasquez
G Eric Hayes
Or if they want to go bigger:
C Braxton Dupree
F Jerome Burney
F Landon Milbourne
G Greivis Vasquez
G Eric Hayes.
Stay tuned for more Men's Hoops news!
And as always tune into THE STEAK, CRAB, & CURRY SHOW tonight from 7-9 PM EST LIVE on 980 ESPN's Kevin Sheehan will be on the show, as well as's Dayn Perry. We can be reached at

Curry on the Cal Game

If you have been listening in on the Steak Crab and Curry Show then you know all three of us talk about the fact that the Terps always play to the level of their competition. Saturday's game against California was no exception as the Terrapins beat the Golden Bears 35-27. Maybe it was the noon game time (which is 9 am in California) or maybe it was just a good team finally finding their identity; either way the Terps looked good taking care of the 23rd ranked team in the nation. Maryland's two running backs Da'Rel Scott and Davin Meggit chewed up the Cal defense for 169 yards and 3 td's. Chris Turner who threw 3 picks against Middle Tennessee State last weekend did not commit a turnover on Saturday while going 15/19 passing with 156 yds and a td. But it was the Maryland defense that really surprised people including myself. They held RB Jahvid Best to just 25 yards rushing after he ran for 311 yds in Cal's first two games. They also sacked QB Kevin Riley 5 times and forced him to throw an interception.

I cant be happier for the players and coaches of this team especially after the dissapointing loss to Middle Tennesse last weekend. This just goes to show that we have a very tough team that is willing to go toe to toe with anyone in the country. With a balanced offense that doesnt turn the ball over and a defense forcing turnovers and sacks I really feel that the Terps have a good chance of being ACC Champs. One thing that has been worrying me is our kicking game. Egekeze has not made a field goal all year and when the Terps get to conference play, every point counts and could be the difference between win and a loss. I don't know who Coach Friedgen can turn to for field goals; maybe a soccer player on the bench or someone else but this needs to be taken care of asap.

Im looking forward to the game on Saturday against Eastern Carolina because it gives Maryland a chance to build off of this past weekends win. For once in my collegiate career I want to see our football team absolutely decimate an opponent; blow them out of the water by 50 points. Saturday will give us an opportunity to do just that and hopefully our team is up for the challenge.

As always...GO TERPS

Kevin Barnes Unleashed!

Kevin Barnes made a name for himself last weekend against Cal...just ask Jahvid Best about it.

And the conclusion to this play...

Well that was pretty gross.
