Terp tendencies: Breaking down the California game

← return to D1SCOURSE

Two of the numbers that were glaring a week ago were first-down passing and third-and-short defense.

Well, Chris Turner was 5-for-7 for 34 yards on first down. And Maryland’s defense didn’t face a third-and-short all day.

So those got fixed up quite well for Maryland.

A couple things that stand out about this week: Turner targeted his tight ends seven times, and Dan Gronkowski and Lansford Watson combined for seven catches.

Also, Maryland had only four “explosive plays” – gains of 16+ yards – as opposed to eight a week earlier. But the offense still looked vastly better, even if there weren’t as many big plays.

(Those long-yardage plays were Da’Rel Scott’s 24-yard touchdown, Turner connecting with Darrius Heyward-Bey on gains of 32 and 27, and Davin Meggett running for 38 yards).

Anyway, here’s the extended rundown of Game Three of Maryland’s season:
