With the college football season quickly coming it only seems right to dive into the good and bad of the University of Maryland’s schedule. Listed below is the Terps’ 2013 schedule. Aug. 31 – Florida International Sept. 7 – Old Dominion Sept. 14 – at Connecticut Sept. 21 – vs. West Virginia (Baltimore) Sept. 28 – Open Oct. 5 – at Florida State Oct. 12 – Virginia Oct. 19 – at Wake Forest Oct. 26 – Clemson Nov. 2 – Open Nov. 9 – Syracuse Nov. 16 – at Virginia Tech Nov. 23 – Boston College Nov. 30 – at N.C. State (Bold and italic denotes home games) There is many ways to possibly look at this schedule. One of them being that only six of their games are at Byrd Stadium so they have a chance to win all but maybe one of their home games (Clemson). Bad news is, Maryland is opening their season with four-straight games against non-conference rivals. Worst case scenario is that the Terps manage to record another losing record although this is probably the healthiest their team has ever been and you have star player Stefon Diggs running the offense. I understand that it is virtually impossible to imagine Florida State or Clemson not playing in their conference finals, but there is still a chance that Maryland could find a way to sneak into the top of the standings. Likewise, if the Terps can avoid injuries this year there is no reason why they shouldn’t win a minimum of six games and finish in the top three of their division. Good news is, when Stefon Diggs is catching passes from someone that isn’t Shawn Petty, he becomes one of the top NCAA players. Diggs is also Maryland’s first 1,000 yard receiver since Torrey Smith and is able to bring speed to their lacking offense. Even so, if Brandon Ross is able to play like he did last year, there is no doubt in my mind that the Terps will be eligible for a bowl game this upcoming season. With the likely hood that all starters will remain healthy the majority of the season, I am predicting to see the Terps carry an even 6-6 record with 2-6 in their conference. Yes, 2-6 in the conference is not spectacular but based off last year’s results with Boston College, NC State, and Clemson I can’t guarantee that the Terps will be able to beat them again with minimal help in their offense besides Ross and Diggs. Winning six games would make them eligible for a bowl game, their first one since 2010.
