Maybe, but Maryland seemed to have some extra pep last night. Maybe they are in a good place right now. It will be interesting to see if they can play well again on Thursday.
I love the positive vibes. I just think Indiana is a real opponent, as to where the previous two wins came against the equivalent of teams you’d play in your OOC slate in Nebraska and PSU. So I just can’t read into these past two wins, as to where I can read into the fact that MD hasn’t beaten a real team since 1/25 at Rutgers. Do they have it in them? Yes. And like you, I’m also quite pleased with how they responded after Iowa. But just feel like a big part of that response was getting to play Nebraska and Penn St. Add to that the fact that Indiana is desperate and played very well last night in Columbus despite the L, I’m just not expecting a contested game. Hope I’m wrong.
