That hit was incredible!!! I thought when Bart Scott knocked the snot out of Ben Rottenboogers, I would never see anything to top it. However, the Kevin Barnes de-cleater has even eclipsed that hit! I'll never forget it! It is one for the books, and no doubt a season changing play for the Terps.

Best (sorry) thing about the hit?-- it was delivered by a now 5th Year Senior and once early commit from Glen Burnie, MD and Old Mill High-- local kid makes good. Keep these kids at home, Ralph...

Hope this brings all the Ralph haters back on the bandwagon. He does know how to motivate the Terps. The same thing happened last year before they upset Rutgers and held Ray Rice well below his average.

Maryland will finish with a 4-8 record (good for last place in the ACC - even behind Duke).

I am glad that Maryland is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

Jelani Jenkins, Travis Hawkins and Isaac Holmes will be signing with the University of Florida.

Go Tar Heels !

Yes-- those Left Coaster surfer dudes can tell you all about pipes and what not, but when it comes to an old fashion stick in the open field they are apparently clueless. Textbook tackle, period. The kid with the Cal shirt needs a real education

There are much more vicious hits all the time. This hardly deserves an article unto itself.

How about the pass? That was a textbook "hospital pass" coupled with a textbook tackle. Poor RB just stretched out and opened up. I hope the Cal QB apologized to Best after the game.

Nice play. Terps needed it after embarrassing us at Middle Tennessee. However, worst headline ever written. Like some nonsensical haiku.
