I blame this game on the players. If they did not want to play - why did they even go there. At no time did they play with any kind of urgency, and the bottom line is there is no clear cut leadership on the field. Successful teams get up for every game, and try to beat embarrass teams like UVA. At no time did UMD get its footing last night. I do not know why it is so hard for the players to buy in to the fact that they can realistically be good. I would assume this group of players would want to be good, but maybe I am wrong. Is Darius not a big game player? UMD needs to find a guy that when all else is going bad, they can ture to him to take over.

And guess what? If you think the football team is ugly, wait until you see Gary's mess at Midnight Madness!

Its not that they lost to Virginia, it is the fact that they got hammered by a team that hadn't even been competitive with another Division I team this year.
Say what you want, but playing down to the level of your competition is a direct reflection on the head coach. Virginia put 8 and 9 men in the box the entire first half- daring a down field throw- and the response from our coaches was to run off tackle on 1st and 2nd down virtually every series. I'm no rocket scientist, but I think I can figure that one out.

I loved this result.
Virginia -- 31
Maryland -- 0 (zero - zip - zilch - nada)
Maryland's - Defensive and Offensive lines and Linebacking corp are the worst in College Football.
I have seen harder hitting teams in powder puff leagues.
Maryland's recruiting efforts are going to take a major hit with this result.
Wake Forest -- 34
Maryland -- 10
Maryland will finish with a 5-7 record.
I am happy 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 !

He has fallen into the old entitlement trap. Many coaches are more successful in there first few seasons at a program, because there is no connection with current players and the evaluation process is different, everyone starts out even.
There are players on this team, including one 4 year starter (#55) on defense, that should never see the field period.
Put the best athletes on the field, and if they are inexpierenced and make mistakes, so be it.
No excuse for the VA. LOSS.
