Coach Cirvoski joined the Norris & Davis Show yesterday to discuss Graham Zusi's performance, and the US's outlook in the World Cup going forward (hint: he likes our chances to advance to the knockout stage)
Local Iowa newspaper The Gazette previews Maryland as a B1G opponent, from a B1G perspective. Iowa has some concerns in their secondary, and can be a one dimensional run based team on offense. They praise Maryland for speed and experience, but note that the schedule does the Terps no favors. I think they are trying to make some friends though, given the think, "the Terps could be favored at State College."
Local Syracuse media outlet The Juice has a preview of the Maryland-Syracuse game. The Juice is a little less modest than The Gazette, however. "The Orange dominated the Terrapins in the way to a 20-3 win at Maryland last year. There's no reason why SU can't do something similar at home. Syracuse 35, Maryland 31." How interesting that a 4 point win counts as dominating like they did last year.
