With the football season well under way and Maryland sitting at (2-1) with a daunting Big Ten schedule looming, it is important to remember that no matter where the Maryland football team ends up this season, we Terps fans still have a lot to look forward to and much to hang our hats on already.

Men's Basketball:

Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter has spent this season getting in better shape, dropping nearly twenty pounds and appearing much more lean than he did when he arrived in College Park, and that is what could propel him into first round NBA discussions with many of his Terps teammates.

The Big Ten Network will cover some 160 games this women's college basketball season. One for Terps fans to be on the look out for is when Maryland takes on Syracuse  at 7 p.m. ET on Dec. 2.

Field Hockey:

Sound and fury: How Maryland is preparing for Mountaineer Field | CSN Mid-Atlantic
If any of you readers went to Maryland during the Ralph era, you already know that this is a tactic that has been utilized at the University of Maryland for many years. I remember sitting with my window open at the beautiful Denton Hall hearing the FSU War Chant blaring over the loud speakers at Byrd/the adjacent practice fields as the Terps prepared to take on the Seminoles at Doak Campbell. Hopefully for Edsall this strategy carries with it a higher level of success than it did for poor Fridge.

"It’s a very tough environment. Their fans are passionate about their team," Edsall said. "We know it’ll be loud." Sadly, Edsall was not allowed to simulate any couch burnings during practices this week.

I suppose, statistically speaking, things could be worse for the Terps...but, they could be better.

Big Ten Football:

MAC-to-Big Ten coaching pipeline remains viable, despite landscape - Big Ten Blog - ESPN
With many coaching vacancies already opening up in the Big Ten, they could look to an old source (the Mac) in an effort to avoid said vacancies.
