Yes, it is sort of a slow week.

It provides time to dwell too much on the last game you saw, for better or for worse. And it offers the opportunity to think of all the stuff you can look up (and should look up) to continue to nourish the appetites of blog readers.

After running through all of the 100-yard receiving games Maryland has yielded in the Ralph Friedgen years (there have been 30 and counting), it seems only reasonable to list all of the Terps’ huge outbursts in that span.

Here goes:

175: Darrius Heyward-Bey vs. Miami, 2006 (5 receptions, 2 TD)

158:Vernon Davis vs. West Virginia, 2005 (5 receptions, 1 TD)

157: Scooter Monroe at North Carolina, 2002 (3 receptions, 1 TD)

140: Vernon Davis vs. Clemson, 2005 (6 receptions, 1 TD)

139: Vernon Davis at North Carolina, 2005 (7 receptions, 1 TD)

125: Danny Melendez vs. Virginia, 2005 (9 receptions, 1 TD)

114: Rich Parson at N.C. State, 2003 (4 receptions)

111: Darrius Heyward-Bey at Georgia Tech, 2006 (5 receptions)

109: Darrius Heyward-Bey vs. Georgia Tech, 2007 (4 receptions)

108: Vernon Davis at N.C. State, 2005 (8 receptions, 1 TD)

106: Scooter Monroe vs. Georgia Tech, 2002 (5 receptions)

104: Vernon Davis at Virginia, 2004 (5 receptions)

103: Latrez Harrison at Duke, 2002 (3 receptions, 1 TD)

101: Vernon Davis at Duke, 2004 (4 receptions, 3 TD)

That’s 14 such performances for Maryland in 7 1/2 seasons, and Vernon Davis accounted for nearly half of them in a pair of 5-6 seasons.

For what it’s worth, Maryland is 9-5 in those games. Also, the current 13-game run without a 100-yard receiver is the program’s longest since a 16-game drought in 2002-03.
