Phrase of the day: "Hop up out the bed, Turgeon swag on." Why did we ever stop saying that? On that note, looks like Nick Faust is sporting a mohawk. As I said before: 11 on the Swag-O-Meter.

Game is on at 5:00 EST on ESPN2. It appears that it'll also be on ESPN3. We'll post any streams we find in the comments.

Random Baseless Prediction: Maryland's first three-pointer of the season comes from ... Sean Mosley? We'll go with that.

Prediction: The key to me is really going to be if they can contain JaMychal Green. It's easier said than done, but if it happens I think Alabama might be prone to a few offensive scoreless periods like we're so used to seeing from Maryland. That said, I'm not sure, at least right now, that Maryland has the offensive wherewithal to make it matter, especially against a defense as strong as Bama's. I'll say Tide 65, Terps 59. Game not quite as close as the score, and it's plenty ugly at times, but I don't think you can be upset with that.
