In the B10 East, IMO Maryland is clearly behind

Ohio St
Penn St
Michigan St

That's 5th place in a 7 team division. Sounds rather mediocre to me. I guess we'll find out more in the next 2 weeks when they play Michigan and Michigan State, while we play TCU and UCF.

Yeah, I hate having a quarterback who sets conference records in his first season and has a chance to own some of the program career records in his second. :roll:

As long as emotional reactions don't get in the way of rational thought. Maryland ran for 225 yards last night. How many of those came when your walk-on backup tight end was on the field?

No, the defense is depleted. Still gave up barely half as many first downs (16, compared to 30 for SMU). Maryland has a big, strong offensive line and wore down our defense. That was the game. Sure didn't help that Kerley and Massey went out, too.

Mordecai set the conference record for TD passes last year, has thrown 10 in 3 games this year (only one behind conference leader), and you want to sit him? We all see a lot of potential in Stone, but for the moment, Mordecai is still the guy.

This loss sucks because we didn’t get beat, we blew it. The two TEs [deleted] us on INTs, the defense looked great in the first qtr/half but their WRs were wide open in the 2nd half. TM looked a little nervous at times, but he’s earned the benefit of the doubt. Our offensive play calls seemed to have shifted a bit in the 2nd half and didn’t benefit us. I’ll be the first to say Stone is my favorite player, but the backup QB is always the most popular… I’d like to see a lot more of Camar!!!

Regardless, beat the [deleted] out of tcu, win the conference, and all is right in the world!!!
