Hope no one is really that surprised Maryland is winning this game.

Just like no one should be surprised if the Terps lose next week.

It just so happens the good version of the Terps showed up today.

Key in that: Chris Turner going 20-of-28 for 186 yards in the first half. To invoke John McCain, my friends, that is sharp.

Another maverick idea: Throwing to Darrius Heyward-Bey. That’s 13 targets, eight catches, 94 yards and a score for Hey-Bey. He entered with 30 targets in six games.

Riley Skinner should be having a good game for Wake. He’s been better than his 8-for-16 and 75 yards. But the Demon Deacons have dropped at least four passes, and a pair of missed field goals have kept Wake off the board.

Wake, by the way, has not taken a snap in the red zone and has only 106 yards offense – including 31 yards on 16 carries.

Jim Grobe’s team gets the ball first to start the second half. It’s probably a pretty crucial possession for the Demon Deacons, who need a sustained drive or two at this juncture.
