Former Terrapin QB Scott McBrien Gives His Keys To Beating FSU

If you’re a Maryland Terrapins fan, when Scott McBrien talks, you’re almost contractually obligated to listen. With Maryland about to head down to Tallahassee for the program’s biggest game in about five years, the Moutaineer Killer himself decided to chime into the conversation. From an airport. Headed to Tallahassee.

Via his website, (Scott McBrien’s Passing Academy), McBrien laid out what the Terps need to do in order to beat Florida State at Doak for the first time in program history. McBrien provides us with not three, but four keys to the Terps winning against the ‘Noles, which you can check out here.

McBrien knows his stuff, and if there’s one analyst who I’m going to listen to about this game, it’s probably him. Even though he admits that his pick might be a homerish one, I still tend to agree. Stopping the Seminoles from making the big plays that damned Boston College is probably the most important thing, and I have no idea how they’ll do that with their top two corners out. Still, if they can manage to do that and control the clock via the ground game (looking at you, Brandon Ross), I still think they could come out with a W at Florida State.

Roll Terps.
