So, since the last time we did one of these, the Maryland Terrapins almost pulled one off against the Buckeyes...for about a quarter in their game. After the obvious failure, Maryland fans knew what was about to go down. Kevin Anderson, AD for Maryland, knew what was about to go down. Hell, even Randy Edsall probably knew that he was screwed.
|I mean, look at this face!|
This is the face of a man who's clearly been in over his head for years.
So, with Locksley's background in mind, should Terps fans be worried about the first black coach in Terps Football history when his squad matches up with the team who's coached by the man who should've been the first black Terps Football coach, James Franklin of Penn State?
Yes, plain and simple. Look, I don't want to kick a team when their down--especially one who I hold near and dear to my hearts. And, Penn State isn't without their problems (look at last week's game against--you guessed it--Ohio State; their offense and special teams woes were quite apparent). But, Penn State is a team that still outmatches Maryland this year. Plus, ya know, the rivalry between the teams has always been pretty one-sided.
But, this is college football. Stranger things have happened...
Maryland and Penn State kickoff Saturday at 3:30PM at M&T Bank Stadium.
