Since the founding of TT, we've had three GameThread-worthy events against Temple. And Maryland hasn't won a single one of them. This is a terrible, horrible streak, and it must be ended. Will Maryland finally get its win over Temple today?
Eh, probably not. But hey, Terps, do it for us. I can't take much more of losing to Temple.
Noon kickoff, ESPNU.
Random, Baseless Prediction: There's at least one safety, as well as a missed field goal. Not picking sides on for which team, though. Oh, and Justus Pickett scores again.
Prediction: This isn't a terrible matchup for Maryland, and there's no reason to think they can't win this game. If Perry Hills can settle in and play mistake-free, if the offensive line can control the point of attack against an inexperienced front seven, and if the defense can force Temple to throw the ball more than they want, it's a winnable game. Of course, that's a lot of ifs, and should any one of them fail, Temple's margin may be too great to overcome.
But it's the GameThread, so I'll assume they won't and say Maryland 21, Temple 3. Because why not.
