2023 49er Football Week #2 - Charlotte @ Maryland 9/9 7:30 PM NBC

Our first ever broadcast on a national OTA platform. This is as big as it gets. Also, though I’m sure Poggi will downplay it, this game has to be one he has had circled since he interviewed for the job - between his background in Baltimore HS football, the number of Baltimore HS and even University of Maryland transfers we have, and the Terps being a previous B1G foe - this is one you know he really wants. And it will be one of the toughest games we play all season.

Getting up to speed on how week 1 went for the Terps:

Lots of concern about their O line play in week 1. They are missing 1 starter and lots of new faces.

Five minute highlight reel of their victory over Towson:

Box Score:

Taulia was 22/33 260 3 TD 86 QBR; also ran 2 for 28 and 1 TD.

TE Corey Dyches had 6 catches for 108 yards and emerged as Taulia’s go to.

I might post some from Phil Steele if I get around to it.

Did they score TD’s on their first 3 possessions? Box score said they were up 21-0 in first qtr.

Seems they were able to play 3 QB’s.

Line prediction? Maybe + 18 or +20??

Tagovailoa threw for three touchdowns and ran for one in the first half of Maryland’s 38-6 rout of Towson on Saturday. The Terrapins took their standout quarterback out late in the third quarter, allowing backups to play against an FCS opponent. But that was after Tagovailoa attempted a whopping 32 passes in the first half as Maryland pulled away.

I predict Maryland (-19.5), though I’m no gambler. If it’s bigger than that, the oddsmakers are either leaning on last year’s score and/or have the same concerns I do about our pass defense.

I think this dude will have no problem with the Maryland QB wanting to run. He is the Terminator!

I’ll be there with another niner and some friends was just looking at the alumni meet up spot “The Hall CP” email says starts at 5 but I’m looking to get to the area by 1-1:30. Does look like the Hall has a good venue so it might be a good spot to camp out at… :call_me_hand::call_me_hand: :beers:

I’ll be there with daughter and cousin. I haven’t really looked into tailgate or anything yet.

My wife’s aunt and uncle just sold their vacation home in Maryland. So rude.

Yeah. I think Vegas thinks they are going to throw all over us and we will struggle to score. With that O/U they are predicting a final score of like 40-14 Maryland.

GA State -7 vs a UConn team that only lost 24-14 to NCSU is also kinda :eyes:. Either NCSU is overrated or that GSU team is damn good.

I’m thinking NCSU is overrated, or URI is in line for an FCS title.

I’m wondering what look we’ll present to our first national prime time TV audience. I’m guessing green pants, white jerseys and gold chrome helmets.

I think we wear St Francis something some where

God bless you ghostofclt

Could we pull a shocker? Something tells me yes. I don’t know, I just have a different feel about this game. I may be embarrassed but…

We will shock Maryland after Saturday’s tune up. Time to hit them again n the mouth.

I think our offensive coordinator knows Maryland’s strengths and weaknesses, and so I expect all our coaches to exploit that knowledge.
