Dear god no.

Maryland is at #25 in both the AP and Coach's Polls. Yah, right? The Terps are getting some national respect, about time, right? Well, the second one is a yes. But the first one? No. Not at all.

Think about it: when are the Terps at their best? Playing a ranked opponent as an underdog, as the games against Clemson, Cal, Wake Forest, etc. It'll be a whole lot harder to be an underdog when they're ranked and *Team X* isn't. This team gets complacent if they're playing anything other than a four TD favorite. Sigh. Let's see if Fridge can keep his team motivated despite being ranked.

Maybe, if we're lucky, some team will jump them in the bye week.
