At #25...in the last week. Whatever, I'll take it. -BB

My take - isn't the last week the most important?

They give Maryland the win over Penn State, but the Big Ten the win over the ACC. Won't argue with that. -BB

My take - I disagree, after UVA SHOCKING upset over Minnesota last night...

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

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.

"Hopefully, we'll start getting some respect," said Friedgen.
