2013 Maryland football's 10 things to know: Forget last year ever happened -
You need to check this out. SB Nation's Bill Connelly gives his long breakdown of Maryland, discussing last season and what we can expect in 2013. I think 8 wins is more likely based on Maryland's out of conference schedule, but Bill thinks 6 is more likely, but more is certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

Maryland football: Soon to be swimming with the big fish in the Big Ten - The Washington Post
Nothing against Jason Reid, but I couldn't disagree with this piece more. He clearly doesn't know about Maryland's planned upgrades to facilities, the guaranteed money they''ll be receiving to make additional upgrades, and ignores other key facts to try to articulate his point.

Nice to see Torrey Smith emerging as a leader for the Ravens.

Terps plan to get some work done in their voyage to the Bahamas -

"There are seven guys right away that I feel very confident with, and both [freshmen] Roddy [Peters] and Damonte [Dodd] have been pleasant surprises. We won't play down here like we're playing North Carolina State."

Apparently Peters has really surprised Turgeon and hopefully with Shaq out, Dodd can get some work in. Can't wait to see these guys on the court this fall.

Field-goal kicking "inconsistent" at Terps' first practice -
Something that hasn't been mentioned too much is the kicking game, which was apparently inconsistent yesterday.
