Terps win, but...

Terps win against a much weaker opponent, the Villanova whatevers, who are very much NOT a "league formerly known as I-AA" powerhouse (witness the App State upset of Michigan).

Overall, I'd give the Terps a C+. They at least executed against a weaker team. However, unless they spend the rest of the season playing Duke or Towson, things need to improve. Jordan Steffy, finally making a substantive appearance for MD was so-so. Fridge had some modest raves on his performance, but I thought he wasn't that great. He hit his receivers, made a few reads etc. However, 'Nova is much slower than anything else he'll see all season.

Overall, they didn't stink up the joint, plus I got some tasty funnel cake. (not my picture)

Next up? FIU!

Things jump up a notch against WVU. Yes, I will be at the 9/13 game, and I will be on my best behavior less a hillbilly throws a Jack Daniels bottle at me.
