Happy Tuesday. Sorry I've been MIA of late. I was on vacation visiting Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks for 10 days and then came home to no power or Fios. We got power back quickly, but we just got our Fios back up and running. Hope everyone survived the storm and is enjoying their summer thus far. Now, onto the links...

In Scout's latest rankings, they've move Dodd up to a 4-star and #79 in the class of 2013. I hope we can keep him committed to us until next year. Great find by Turgeon. Are notes - Andrew Harrison - #2, Aaron Harrison #4, Jermaine Lawrence #15, BeeJay Anya #20, Tyler Ennnis #22, Dominic Woodson #29, Knenedy Meeks #40, Rysheed Jordan #47.

Heather Dinich looks at a reason Maryland can win and a reason Maryland could lose this season. I think she over simplifies the transfer situation. If those players didn't want to be here, isn't it better that they're gone? Yes, replacing offensive linemen is never easy, but I think they'll be better in year two of Edsall than they were last year, in which everything that could go wrong seemed to go wrong.
