I can't remember the last time there was this much buzz surrounding a Maryland football game. This is the biggest game MD has played in football in a while. And I think it's a telling sign for Ralph Friedgen - if they can't sell out Byrd for this game, against FSU, Saturday night, black out, on ABC, then short of an ACC title, it's going to be hard getting sell outs at Byrd anytime again while Ralph is there. In case you're on the fence about going, check this out:

Not sure if we linked to this in the past, but I thought it was worth doing because of the detail Stevens goes into about Ralph's dislike of Virginia. Ralph, I'm pretty sure this is one issue where the fan base is 100% behind you.

Gary doesn't think we gave Maine enough respect. I would have given them more respect if they came out before the game and each player said "I'm from Maine and no one can beat me!"
