  • The Baltimore Sun and Dave Tucker of TestudoTimes.com got together to discuss Terps, and it’s always an interesting read whenever that much Terpage is in one article. Topics range from Dion Wiley to Alex Len and it’s my opinion that you should read it.
  • Danny O’Brien was the best quarterback to come through Maryland since Hollenbach, which isn’t saying much until you consider he was a rookie at the time. Unfortunately, poor management and ego got the best of him, and he is now leaving Wisconsin after being benched due to his poor performance last year. Normally I’d have some snappy remark about him being a quitter, but in all honesty now I just feel bad for the kid.
  • Chibuzo Ukandu is a name you might want to start paying more attention to. He’s the younger brother of fellow Terp Azubuike Ukandu, and appears to be getting a lot of looks from Rand Edsall. Is he a project? Sure. But considering where he attends high school, Maryland might want to take him on to further the bonds between them.
  • Andrea Adelson has a list of transfers to watch in the ACC, and obviously on that list is a certain wide receiver who was fuego in JUCO and is now expected to perform at the D1 level. I’ve got high hopes, and you probably should too. Provided Maryland gives the guy a proper quarterback I see no reason why he can’t thrive. That being said, there are definitely a lot of expectations on the kid.
