Maryland Terrapins Preview 2022

Well that’s more like it.

Maryland struggled through six straight losing seasons, and just when it looked like it was going to happen again, the team won its last two games – and got its first bowl victory since 2010.

7-6 is nothing to build statues for, but for a program and head coach that needed a positive turn, that was it.

Yeah, yeah, all the Terps did was beat Rutgers and blow through a depleted Virginia Tech, but after getting obliterated in all six losses in a 1-6 run leading up the regular season finale, that was exactly the positive momentum needed to go into the offseason.

Now there’s excitement, and rightly so.

No, Maryland isn’t going to win the Big Ten title, but after a few years of building things up through strong recruiting classes, Mike Locksley has a whole lot of good pieces in place, His offensive style should be more consistent, and now it’s time to be that thorn-in-the-side team that screws up the big guys.

This should be the best Terp team in years, the schedule is easy early and …

The schedule gets brutal, and might take a win over Rutgers again in the regular season finale, but it should be a more entertaining ride to get there.

Maryland Terrapins Preview 2022: Offense

Yeah, the offense works – against the mediocre. Overall, Maryland was fourth in the Big Ten in total and scoring offense, was 13th in the nation in passing, and was okay in pass protection, but the total numbers don’t tell the whole story.

Maryland cranked up more than 460 yards in each of the seven wins – all against bad teams, with the exception of West Virginia – and was under the mark in all six losses. The idea is to be more consistent, more balanced, and better against the good teams – there are a whole lot of them on the slate.

It all starts with a passing game that’s going to be a problem for the rest of the Big Ten. Taulia Tagovailoa sputtered in 2020, but it all kicked in last year with 26 touchdowns and close to 4,000 yards. Now he’s the unquestioned veteran No. 1 guy, and he’s got the targets to do even more.

Rakim Jarrett led the way with 62 catches, Dontay Demus is one of the Big Ten’s most dangerous weapons when healthy, and on the way is Jacob Copeland from Florida – who caught 85 passes and scored nine times over the last three seasons – to add another deep threat.

The ground attack will be along for the ride, but it’ll be fine as long as it can boost up the yards per carry from the four yards per pop of last year.

All five starters are expected to be back to a functional offensive front – left tackle Jaelyn Duncan is the best of the bunch – but the backfield loses leading rusher Tayon Fleet-Davis.

Challen Faamatau and Colby McDonald are tough, quick backs, but the O will be about that passing game.

Maryland Terrapins Preview 2022: Defense

Like the offensive side, the defense was great against the mediocre and got rocked by everyone else. The Terps struggled to take the ball away, they were 12th in the conference in total defense, and 13th in scoring.

Worse yet, it’s going to be a bit of a work in progress with so many key parts gone and the depth needing time to develop.

The line has to be more of a factor. It only got gouged against the run a few times, and it only gave up four yards per carry, but the pass rush was sporadic and there weren’t nearly enough tackles for loss.

On the plus side, the 300+ pound tackle combination of Ami Finau and Moria Nasili-Kite should be a strength. Now the disruption has to come from the ends.

Ruben Hyppolite îs a good hitter in the middle of the linebacking corps, but he’s one of the few returning top tacklers. On the plus side, corner Tarheeb Still is back to go along with Jakorian Bennett on the outside.

Only two players came up with interceptions in 2021. New Indianapolis Colt Nick Cross came up with three, and Bennett got the other three. The corners have to be great, but the Terps need more help at safety.

So where’s the curveball going to come from this year in the Big Ten?

Last year it was Michigan getting over the hump – at least, it did after losing to a surprising Michigan State team – the year before it was Indiana rising up and Northwestern getting to the Big Ten Championship for the second time in three years, and this year it’s …

Nebraska? Maybe. Maryland? To a point, potentially, or …

Maybe it’s back to Ohio State and 13 other teams.

There’s a whole lot of fun to be had with all 14 teams looking either improved or good enough to make a reasonable push for a strong season. Of course, that’s not how this all works, but it’s Spring. It’s a time for hope.

The rankings are based on how good the teams should be and not the final projected records. Keeping in mind that this all could/might/will change when we make the final calls in August …

With the history of the Big Ten there are loads and loads of Hall of Famers and all-time great NFL draft picks to choose from. So who are the best of all-time coming from the conference?

This isn’t a list of the top pro players to come from the Big Ten schools – these are the best draft picks.

The guys who had great careers for someone other than teams that drafted them get knocked down a peg, or aren’t on the list at all. For example, Purdue’s Drew Brees was obviously an all-time NFL great, but for New Orleans, not the Chargers.

The goal for any draft pick is to get a player who performs at a high level for a long period of time, so longevity matters over one short burst of greatness.

22 College Football Thoughts For 2022

Contact/Follow @ColFootballNews & @PeteFiutak
2022 College Football Schedules: All 131 Teams

22 College Football Thoughts For 2022
22, College football is changing, and it’s okay
21, Texas & Oklahoma, you really want the SEC?
20. SEC is really, really good if you like it or not
19. James Madison, welcome to the show
18. Sun Belt is the cool conference
17. Transfer Portal will only get bigger
16. NFL, keep your hands off our announcers
15. Big 12: Get bigger and stronger, or else

14. Big Ten expansion: NOW what does it do?

Conference expansion and realignment have been a part of college football ever since college alliances began, but business-wise, it all went up a few notches in the early 1990s.

The Southwest Conference and Big 8 created the Big 12, Florida State joined the ACC – setting the tone for a wave of additions from the Big East – and Penn State went to the most forward-thinking conference of the bunch, the Big Ten.

Even when the Big Ten wasn’t bringing aboard schools, it was getting everyone talking.

When it has expansion and big business ideas, the B1G usually tells you what it’s going to do – or, at the very least, hints at it – and why? Because it can.

However, after Texas and Oklahoma made the move to the SEC, the Big Ten has been strangely quiet when it comes to conference expansion. As in, like, dead silent.

Under former Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, the conference had a way of subtly letting out the expansion trial balloons to see which way the wind was blowing. So far under new commissioner Kevin Warren, there’s apparently no interest in adding more schools, everything is fine as is, and …

There aren’t a whole lot of options. That’s the problem. And there’s a bigger existential concern that Big Ten people don’t like to talk about at parties …

Ohio State.

All of a sudden, the SEC is positioning itself to take over the Big Ten as the most dominant revenue producing conference, but it needs more. It needs to make people outside of the southeast part of the country care about the product when it’s not the Alabama vs. Big Other SEC Team of the Moment showdown.

The SEC getting Oklahoma was one thing, but landing Texas changed the game.

First, it’s Texas. Blow off the problems on the football field; that’s the big boy at the table when it comes to revenue producing athletic departments.

Second, it’s Texas. It’s going to step in and be the second-best academic institution in the SEC behind Vanderbilt, or arguably 2B along with Florida.

Third, it’s Texas. Having Texas A&M is great, but you get the University of Texas, you get all the big markets across the entire state including a lockdown of the Dallas/Fort Worth area – the fifth largest media market in the country.

The SEC now owns Dallas, it owns Atlanta (7th largest media market according to the Nielsen Ratings), and it pretty much has Houston (8th), Tampa/St. Petersburg (13th), and Orlando (17th). That’s not quite like having Chicago (3rd), Philadelphia (4th), Washington DC (9th), Minneapolis (14th), Detroit (15th), Cleveland (19th) and whatever parts of New York that cares about college football, but it’s huge.

And the Big Ten totally blew it.


Big Ten 2022 Schedule Analysis: 3 things to know
Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Maryland | Michigan
Michigan State | 
Minnesota | Nebraska | Ohio State
Penn State | PurdueRutgers | Wisconsin


It was one of those spitballed ideas several years ago when the Big Ten was looking to expand. Texas was – and still is – the PERFECT fit for the Big Ten in every possible way. As I said in an earlier rant, Texas people aren’t doing their jobs – in terms of potential football success, revenue, and academic profile – if it doesn’t do a double-take on this SEC move.

But that’s not going to happen, Texas is going to the SEC, and that opens the gate for every big-time athletic school that would trade it all for a little bit more.

It’s doubtful the SEC could ever get Michigan – horrible academic branding downgrade – but Ohio State? It’s been more than just hinted that the SEC would love to get THE school in Ohio and all but end any possible balance of college football power.

Of course there’s the sports side, but to get all of the Ohio markets – and create a much, much bigger overall media deal – would be a devastating blow to the Big Ten.

No, I don’t think Ohio State is ever leaving the Big Ten, but it sure as shoot has a whole lot of negotiating power with a whole lot of muscle.

So now the Big Ten has to do something splashy to not only keep up with the SEC, but to make the current members richer and happier. 

But how?

There are two expansion issues for the conference. Expansion only makes sense if it raises the revenue for everyone. There’s no reason to keep adding schools just to add schools if it splits up the pie a few more slices. The other issue is the lack of options.

Part arrogance, part negotiating stalemates, part not wanting to add big-time football schools to make life a wee bit harder for the powerhouses – notice there was no griping whatsoever from the football coaches after adding Rutgers and Maryland – the Big Ten didn’t get Texas. It never really came all that close to figuring it out with Notre Dame – that was on both sides. It completely whiffed by not jumping on Missouri and Colorado to expand west, and it didn’t really go hard enough on the top ACC schools when it had the chance. 

That last one is the killer. 

The Big Ten would LOVE to have North Carolina – it fits in the exact same way Texas would have. It would have probably pushed for Georgia Tech for the Atlanta market – just like it wanted Rutgers for New York/New Jersey and Maryland for Baltimore/Washington DC – Boston College and Syracuse would’ve been interesting ideas, and Virginia would be a no-brainer.

But the ACC has its schools locked up until 2035 in a rough media deal – that’s sort of why you haven’t heard much about the SEC putting a fence around the southeast part of the country by taking over Clemson, Florida State, and Miami.

Everything has its price, and there’s always a way, but the ACC is all but out. Notre Dame continues to be a non-starter, and the Big Ten and Pac-12 don’t seem to want to mess with each other in any sort of expansion rumors – even though USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Arizona, and Washington are all probably more in the Big Ten’s thought bubble than many might want to believe.

So now what?

There are only a few schools that make sense for what the Big Ten is looking for. They have to be Tier 1 research universities with a good media reach and the ability expand the overall footprint – don’t worry too much about geography and travel; it’s 1,300 miles from Piscataway to Lincoln.

And it has to have the main schools the respective states – like THE University of Nebraska, and THE University of Maryland, and THE State University of New Jersey.

The easy starting point would be Kansas – great basketball, Tier 1 research, Kansas City and St. Louis markets, easy geographic rival for the Big Ten West – but that’s not exactly matching the SEC getting Oklahoma and Texas.

All of the other Big 12 schools other than TCU have the Tier 1 academic profile, but … nah. West Virginia doesn’t really fit, and the Big Ten isn’t going after Iowa State when it has Iowa, or Kansas State when it can probably get Kansas.

So that leaves the Pac-12. The Big Ten doesn’t want to ruffle that relationship, but business is business, and Colorado would slide right in and be at home in the Big Ten. The Pac-12 would get all mad, and then it would finally do what it should’ve done years ago and snatch Colorado State, San Diego State, and UNLV from the Mountain West.

Colorado and Kansas? Really? That would be the Big Ten’s smartest and best answer to the SEC getting Texas and Oklahoma? 

Yeah – because it works. 

Remember, this is business – don’t get caught up in level of play on the football field. 

Colorado would be about adding Denver – the 16th biggest media market in the country – and Kansas, again, gets you Kansas City (34th) and helps with St. Louis (23rd) to go along with the national basketball base that would park it on the Big Ten Network during the season.

Or nothing could happen, the Big Ten will keep printing money, and it’ll spend its time working on keeping the member institutions from thinking about entering the conference transfer portal.

But it’s the Big Ten. It might be quiet, but ohhhhhhhh, no. It’s not going to sit this one out.

You really think the Big Ten is going to let the SEC take over the world?

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Ohio State vs Maryland Game Preview


Why Ohio State Will Win

Ohio State is too good at both ends of the floor on the inside.

It’s second in the Big Ten in shooting percentage, it’s doing a nice job from the outside, and the defense is solid at generating blocked shots and is okay on the defensive boards.

Maryland will shoot plenty of threes, but it doesn’t make enough of them and the defense has a hard time getting out and forcing mistakes and stopping threes.

The Terps have allowed 40% shooting or better in each of the last eight games and are getting bombed on too easily at times. Ohio State wasn’t on from the outside against Iowa, but it’s been effective against everyone else over the last month.

Basically, Maryland will have a hard time keeping up, but …

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why Maryland Will Win

Maryland won’t have to worry about turnovers or mistakes, and the defense should be better than it was the first time around.

The Buckeyes hit over 50% from the field and made 11 threes, and that’s almost certainly not happening again. The Terp offense failed to get to 40% from the field, but if the attack can force its way to the free throw line it’ll have a shot.

Ohio State’s defense might be decent overall, but it doesn’t force mistakes. Maryland should be able to attack the rim, and even if it doesn’t generate points, it should get fouled enough to matter.

However …

Top 25 Game Previews, Predictions

What’s Going To Happen

Ohio State is shooting too well.

Maryland needs to own the free throw line – it’s great when it gets there – but the Buckeyes have been a machine lately with 71 free throw attempts over the last three games.

Maryland needs to make lots and lots of free throws along with making 45% of its shots from the field.

Neither will happen.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Purdue vs Maryland Game Preview


Why Maryland Will Win

On a four-game losing steak, Maryland is having defensive issues without enough takeaways or stops inside or out. What is it doing right?

It’s hitting its threes.

Not normally a great outside shooting team, it cranked up 14 threes in the 110-87 loss to Iowa and came up with ten in the 82-67 loss to Ohio State. The team can’t hang shot for shot with the Boilermakers, but if they can start putting the pressure on from the outside early, they might have a shot.

How did Purdue lose to Michigan 82-58 a few days ago? The Wolverines nailed 12-of-21 from three.

As good as Purdue is overall, the defense allows ways too many made shots. Everyone seems to be hitting from outside lately, but …

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why Purdue Will Win

Maryland isn’t cranking up the offense even with the threes.

The offensive rebounds aren’t there, the inside shooting is erratic, there are way too many turnovers, and in general, there aren’t enough offensive options to keep things going against the versatile Boilermakers.

Even with the loss to Michigan, Purdue is still the best scoring team in the Big Ten. It’s still the best rebounding team, it’s great from the line, and it’s the best in the conference from three.

Maryland won’t get enough rebounds to make up for the other issues.

Top 25 Game Previews, Predictions

What’s Going To Happen

This might be a plucky Maryland team that has its moments, but the three point shooting against Iowa was an aberration.

Purdue is going to be salty.

That Michigan loss was a blip, but that ends now. The dominance at home will continue. Currently 14-0 in Mackey, Purdue will come out hot and cruise from there.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Maryland vs Ohio State Game Preview


Why Maryland Will Win

Maryland’s been on a rough run – it can’t seem to buy too many breaks – but the defense hasn’t been all that bad.

The rebounding at times has been strong, and the three-point defense is solid, and now it all has to come together against a team that should be a tad rusty.

After all of the weather problems over the last week, the Buckeyes haven’t plays since January 30th and haven’t won a game since the 27th. They might be rested, but considering they weren’t hot from the outside over the last few games against Big Ten teams, the Terp defense has to be on from the start.

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why Ohio State Will Win

Maryland is hitting its shots from the field and it’s not enough. It has to be doing everything right on the inside and can’t miss its free throws because the overall scoring punch just isn’t there.

It’s a bit by design – this isn’t a team that’s going to race up and down the court – but the scoring just isn’t there. It’s a struggle to get to 70 – it hasn’t done it more than twice since December.

Ohio State might not have been red hot before the week off, but in general it’s a strong shooting team that can work inside and out. It’s the second-best shooting team in the Big Ten, and it should be able to find ways to get past one of he nation’s best scoring defenses.

However …

Top 25 Game Previews, Predictions

What’s Going To Happen

Ohio State has to be patient.

It’s going to want to get up and go against a Terp team that does a whole lot of things right, and that includes keeping games in the 60s and under.

Can the Buckeyes get to 70? Maryland is 0-9 when it doesn’t get to 68 points,  and Ohio State is 11-1 when it scores more than 68.

It’s going to be a fight to get points, but the Buckeyes will go on a little burst in the second half to finally start getting control. Maryland won’t hit its free throws when it counts.

Maryland Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Terrapins miss from the Big Ten West Division?

The Terps don’t get Iowa, Minnesota, or Nebraska, but missing Illinois isn’t necessarily going to help. They have to go to Wisconsin, but Purdue and Northwestern are winnable games at home.

It’s not like there are a ton of breaks against the East, but Ohio State and Michigan State have to come to College Park and closing with Rutgers at home should help the cause.

Maryland Football Schedule What To Know: The Terps are easing their way into the season

In general, a Power Five program should face at least one other Power Five team in non-conference play. Maryland, though, has built its slate to get to 3-0 with a nice base of wins – Buffalo, at Charlotte, South Alabama – before kicking off the Big Ten season at Michigan.

Maryland Football Schedule What To Know: What does it all really mean?

It’s a good schedule overall with enough built in winnable games to get to at least six wins and a bowl.

Take care of home against Rutgers and Northwestern, win the three non-conference games, and pull off a victory somewhere else against a Purdue or even a Michigan State at home – or Indiana on the road – and it’ll be a good year.

With a late run of three road games in four dates, though, before dealing with Ohio State, winning early is a must.
