Yesterday, the men's basketball team played their first exhibition game of the season in the Bahamas. There was no TV or radio feed, but there were live stats coming out of the game...until they froze during the 1st quarter and never resumed. But according to Nick Faust, the team did win the game.

I've also heard that Jake Laymon and Dez Wells had great games, but we still have no stats or other updates from the game. As soon as we do, we'll fill you all in.

Obviously you want to have Brown out there too, but I really think Reid and Ross will be a great job this season.

$$$ article, but a Maryland player makes this list, but it's not who you'd expect. Diggs isn't on here (I assume they already consider him a star), but C.J. Brown is at #45.

They've got Edsall as kinda hot, but not one of the hottest. They're pretty spot on; if he doesn't deliver this year, he'll likely be in trouble. Also worth noting on this list is Mike Leach.

Terps offense may move from stalled in 2012 to stalwart in 2013 -
Maryland's offense could definitely be the strength of this team. Even if the o-line struggles, those struggles should be somewhat minimized by utilizing the zone read. As long as Brown can get the ball in the hands of his play makers or make plays himself, I think the offense has the potential to be great.

Nice piece on Matt Robinson, who is competing with Alex Twine for a starting spot at outside linebacker.

With no turnover on coaching staff, Maryland football at last enjoys stability
Something that hasn't been talked about much is the lack of staff turnover from last season to this season. Should be huge for this young team, as everything will remain the same playbook and terminology wise.
