Game Starts at September 05 2011 17:00 EST
Take (212) MARYLAND
And you think you’ve got troubles? Miami is the featured Monday night
matchup the first week of the college season….and battling an
embarrassing scandal for their ACC opener. New Coach Al Golden has to
work around 8 to 13 players being suspended and hoping to get some of
them back for this game, including quarterback Jacory Harris,
linebacker Sean Spence and receiver Travis Benjamin. Only tight end
Dyron Dye and cornerback JoJo Nicolas were not seen practicing. Senior
QB Harris (14 TDs, 15 INTs in 2010) was erratic in their pro-style
attack last season as was soph Stephen Morris (7 Tds, 9 INTs), so
Golden is going with a simpler playbook. He’s a proponent of running
the football first. Top wideout Leonard Hankerson (72 receptions, 1,156
yards, 13 TDs) is no longer around, but there is depth at receiver with
talented playmakers like seniors Travis Benjamin (43 receptions, 743
yards, three TDs) and LaRon Byrd (41 receptions, 441 yards, one TD).
The rushing attack must also move on without last year’s top guy
(Damien Berry), but sophomore Lamar Miller showcased his big play
potential, averaging 6.0 yards per carry. Four of the team’s five
starters along the offensive line return. The linebacking must deal
with the loss of leading tackler Colin McCarthy. The team is idle the
following week, followed by a home date against the Ohio State (how
ironic). The Hurricanes are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 conference games.
Maryland starts life without coach Ralph Friedgen, bring in former
UConn coach Randy Edsell. He likes to run the football, too, though he
brings in new offensive coordinator Gary Crowton, who likes the pass.
Junior QB Danny O’Brien (22 TDs, 8 INTs) runs a balanced offense that
was strong, averaging 32 points along with power RBs Davin Meggett (720
yds, 5.7 ypc) and D.J. Adams. Another change from the Friedgen coaching
scheme will be the removal of the two-tight end set. Maryland will
utilize only one, going with TE Matt Furstenburg. The defense can’t
rush the passer but does a lot of things well, allowing 22.2 ppg. Last
year Miami won 26-20 at home as 8-point chalk. The Terrapins are 7-2
ATS in their last 9 home games and the Over is 5-2 in their last 7 home
games. So many changes makes this a better game to watch to see their
Projected Score: Maryland 24, Miami 17
