Maryland Minute 10.9.12: Terps Juggle Depth Chart; State Game Time Announced

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Depth chart changes in Terps secondary, defensive line
The running backs are listed as co-starters despite Edsall saying earlier that Justus Pickett and Wes Brown are the guys, but I think they're still just playing games there. More interestingly: Anthony Nixon is listed as the starter at safety. He got a game ball from Edsall on Saturday, so clearly he did something right.

Maryland-State game time announced: 3:30
Great time, once again. Every game that's not a noon kick (or the infuriating 12:30, which is like a noon kick only lamer) is a bonus to me. It's also on ESPNU, so actual TV FTW. Assuming there's no Dan Hawkins in the booth, this time.

BC breaking out USA-themed jerseys for Maryland game
It's the Wounded Warrior Project game, which explains the flash. But if BC's wearing them for this ... won't Maryland, too? Or will we have our own game? Or are we not participating in this anymore? UA has enough programs that they don't need every team to do so.

Georgia Tech fires Al Groh, everyone laugh
Poor ol' Chessmaster. Well, the negative part of this is that there's a chance the defense improves, since Groh had apparently lost the locker room. Here's hoping it has the opposite effect and throws things into a state of disarray. Everyone knows Maryland can stop GT's offense, but if they can put up some yards on their D, this game's definitely in play.

Second in the Harrison sweepstakes, Maryland Terrapins plow ahead - Andy Katz
Still looking for that first elite recruit. Thing is ... who would that be? Noah Vonleh doesn't seem to be in play. Roddy Peters doesn't count. Not really in play for Justise Winslow, Dwayne Morgan probably won't be high enough. Theo Pinson?

Kansas gets a commit from PG Frank Mason
Mason's a local kid - playing with Damonte Dodd at Massanutten, actually. A lot of people are saying this is big for Roddy Peters, and it may be. I don't think Kansas will stop pursuing him, and I doubt he's scared off by Mason, who's a Plan B type. But hopefully it's just enough to give him pause.

Virginia Football's Indoor Practice Facility Roof Catches Fire - Streaking The Lawn
As STL says, once your football facilities start spontaneously combusting, it's probably time to admit there are some problems in the program.
