Checking in on the recruiting classes in the ACC - ESPN
An overview of every class, including Maryland's. The future of Maryland's class, according to them, is in Darius Jennings, Corey Tindal, Dondi Kirby, Blake Countess, and Steven Montgomery. Land Jennings and one more, and I'm happy. Jennings and two more, and it's another amazing finish. -BB

TCU's move to Big East provides security - Dallas Colleges Blog - ESPN Dallas
TCU is heading to the Big East. Probably doesn't impact MD much, but it does pretty much guarantee that the Big East will keep their auto BCS berth. I doubt this gets the Big 10 expansion talks going again, because the Big East isn't exactly a threat, even with TCU, to them.

Doesn't mention MD much, but he does say this:
Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen completed one of the season's biggest turnarounds in improving the Terps from 2-10 to 8-4. While Maryland's offense was largely a work in progress all year, the Terps unleashed the hounds Saturday against N.C. State (8-4), with freshman quarterback Danny O'Brien throwing for 417 yards and receiver Torrey Smith catching 14 passes for 224 yards and four touchdowns. "Hopefully, we'll start getting some respect," said Friedgen.
