You know, it was a weekend without football, and for the first time in a little while, I can say I missed it even with our Terps coming off a loss. I think it has a lot to do with watching Stefon Diggs. If he moves the excitement meter for me, hopefully some other people will be interested in coming out to Byrd to see him in action as well this Saturday against Wake Forest.
There is some administrative stuff we need to take a look at here. The ACC announced that the Virginia game on October 13th will be a 3:00 start on RSN. As far as I remember, RSN stands for a regional sports network, and in most cases, I believe that is Comcast Sports Net in the Baltimore/DC market. Either way, another great time. For those of you road tripping, it is easy enough to get up in the morning and get down there in time to still have a solid pregame tailgate. For those of you watching at home, you can still knock a lot off your honey do list, or get to that morning soccer or football game your kids are playing in, and still see most if not all of the game live.
So there is one last little nugget before we start looking at Wake Forest. Just a little primer for you, the Terps are FAVORED by 4 points. That right, I said FAVORED. Now, if you take the fact that most people give three points for the home team, the Terps are a one point favorite on a neutral site against a Wake team that hasn’t impressed much this season. Coming off a loss to Duke, they will be ready to get at it, but if I was a betting man, with the Terps riding a little momentum following the better than expected effort at West Virginia, and coming off a bye, I would go with the Terps here. Just a gut feeling here.
Check back as the week continues, as we will dissect Wake a little closer, and take a look at what exactly the Terps are up against.
