  1. Oh, it’s almost game time, my friends! VERY EXCITED for this first one. I’ve got Loyola winning, but I picked against both of these teams in the last round, so what do I know? Also, I got my bike fixed up and back today. It’s amazing.

    • he was so calm! I feel like he disagreed with what Dixon said, but was just so cordial about it… that’s the calmest he may have ever been. haha. wouldn’t have minded some yelling! hahah.

  2. If Costabile has a big game but Duke loses, do you think he wins the Tewaaraton? Sawyer didn’t do too much earlier. Guess it depends on the game Sawyer would have on Monday? Any more shot for Peter Baum?

    • If Sawyer goes off, he could win it, but otherwise I think it has to go to Baum or Costabile, even though I love Stanwick.  Manny is a great player, but realistically has little to no chance.

      I feel like Baum is good enough to pull a Shanahan though.

  3. Maryland needs to move the ball against Duke’s quick slides, they move it once and dodge when they could move it 2-3 times and get an open look on the backside. Other than that a good offensive half for the Terps

  4. Funny how when Championship Weekend gets moved to Foxboro, two Maryland teams makes the finals. Probably would have shattered attendance records if the game was at M&T Bank Stadium Monday.
