It's West Virginia week. A few years ago, that was a really big deal. Maryland and WVU each had good teams and the games were very entertaining. Unfortunately for Maryland, the last several WVU games have been rather lopsided in WVU's favor. The last time Maryland beat the Mountaineers was in the 2004 Gator Bowl, when we blew them out 41-7. That win gave Maryland the series lead against WVU, at 21-19-2. Since then, Maryland has dropped six straight, and has been out scored 194-111. So the question is - do you still consider WVU to be a rivalry game? Is this still the biggest football match up you look forward to each year or has the recent WVU dominance altered your view of this game?

WVU Coach Dana Holgorsen: Rivalry with Maryland still there - TI
There's been plenty of discussion about the "rivalry" with West Virginia, which most West Virignians don't really consider a rivalry. Dana Holgorsen seems to be glad it's on the schedule, but you'll note that he doesn't call it a "rivalry" either. -BB

Maryland listing four co-starters at running back
Mind games? Or is Edsall/Powell/Locksley really uncertain about which of the four should start?

Based on the merits of the situation, it should be Brown. At the moment, at least. It looks like Maryland will ride the hot hand until someone proves themselves to be worthy of the full-time gig. First that was Pickett; now it's Brown. Until someone else wrestles it away from him, it should be his spot. I'd guess the staff agrees with that, but they don't want him to get lazy or complacent. Or it's just a reflection of the fact that, really, there is no entrenched starter, really. - Ben B.
