    I like our new guy. Durkin and the staff he has put together. Not a lot here in a while.
    They seem prepared, no we haven't played anyone. But do you remember games like William and Mary?
    They seem excited to play, yes I know weak competition and winning may help.

    Cameron Chism comments early in this read kind of tell the story.
    A Big Win Calls for Big Celebrations Against Purdue

    Next years recruiting class looks pretty darn good.
    Penn State and Minn will tell us a lot.
    Go Terps.

    I'm curious to see if we can hang with State in Happy Valley.

    Me too. I think the line is now Penn St by 3.
    We lose, its not the end of the world for fist time coach. Then it's how we lose.
    They lose, it could get tough for Franklin. And to think a few years ago he was the Maryland Coach in waiting.
    One coach has lost his job already this year after loosing to Maryland.

    Nice Washington Post article yesterday,
    DJ Durkin’s melding of the present and future is working at Maryland, by Jerry Brewer

    Now I don't know how I got to it. I do get a email from 20/7 though.
    His approach could teach a lot of those making regular job changes with some supervisory role.

    Need to beat Rutgers to be bowl eligible and need a couple of more recruiting classes for Durkin.

    I think Rutgers will be tougher than some think.
    They have what might turn out to be a good young coach too.
    The good news is it's home.

    This years (2017) recruiting class of verbal commits looks pretty good so far at 20 today. I never paid much attention to recruiting outside of signing day in the past. There is so much more news and rumors than years ago.
    We only have four freshmen that haven't played in this years class, ie red shirt. One of those was Even with a good class we will be young for a few years. The Tweets and quotes from our freshmen, commits etc to friends they are trying to bring on seem have the mantra come and play early. Good in the short term.
