2019
Aug. 31: Bowling Green
Sept. 14: at Temple
Sept. 21: Syracuse
Sept. 28: Penn State
Oct. 5: at Rutgers
Oct. 12: at Purdue
Oct. 19: Indiana
Oct. 26: at Minnesota
Nov. 2: Michigan
Nov. 9: at Ohio State
Nov. 23: Nebraska
Nov. 30: at Michigan State

 

 

I feel like we're finally going to see production in the passing game.  There is also depth if (when) injuries occur. 

 

The RB's are awesome.  

The LB's can be strong. The Secondary can be good. 

The O-Line has some talent... but they are also younger. 

The D-Line has some young talent, but real questions / concern of how productive they can be in '19. 
Probably not enough depth.

There seems to be some concern with the Punting.  


I'm keying on the QB play.  It's been mediocre to bad for years.
Has a real chance to be average to even good this year. 

They get the passing game going with what they have with their RB's, they should be in most games. 

 

 

 

 

Ohio State and Michigan are Top 10 for all, Top 5 for some.
Penn State is Top 20 for most. 
Syracuse, and Michigan State are Top 25 for most. 
Nebraska Top 25 for some.
Minnesota and Purdue Top 45 for most.

Frankly I think they're all "winnable", though certainly they'll be heavy underdogs in a few.

 

Michigan and @OSU certainly are probably losses.

Penn State probably is a loss.  I have a feeling that Scott Frost will have Nebraska playing very well this year so I see that one as a likely loss for now.

 

But no reason expectations shouldn't be pretty high.  Say what you will about Durkin but there's no question he significantly upgraded the talent base which should bear fruit this year.  Locksley doesn't get too much of a honeymoon period here - this is not a rebuild from a talent standpoint.

It feels like a 5 or 6 win team to me.

Yeah, I think so.  Even 7 or 8 is possible.  5 or 6 feels likely. 

They've got some QB depth, and legitimate reason to believe they'll get production in the passing game for the first time in years. 
That's huge. 

O-Line still has some talent despite the departures. 
D-Line is the major question. There is some talent, but it's young, and the depth isn't great. 

RB's awesome.  WR's / TE's have some talent. 

LB solid.  Secondary solid. 

 

 

 

Seriously, just get regular production in the passing game for the first time in years, and that's going to make a tremendous difference overall.

Seems like a fair analysis.

There are going to be some ugly games but if they get some luck injury wise, I think they could get to 6.

I am not a fan of the junk bowl games, but getting to 6 wins and becoming eligible for one of the games, might pay big dividends for Maryland going forward.  IMO, they are still damage goods from a recruiting stand point, but a bowl game would give them a little more credibility.
