Boston College vs. Maryland: Final Thoughts and Predictions

Jim Rogash

Previewing this weekend's Boston College-Maryland game

Two more regular season games to go, two more wins on the board for Addazio and Co., and two more chances for Andre Williams to show the world that he is the best running back in the nation. The other story line here is that this is BC and Maryland's final matchup before the Terps head off to the Big Ten. It's been a rather bizarre rivalry, with Maryland delivering a big blow in 2007, but BC winning the last two in spite of Frank Spaziani. Let's take a look at BC's final trip to College Park, what the game means for the two teams and of course another installment of Baldwin Junior.

Big Questions

What kind of team is Maryland without Stefon Diggs? Can C.J. Brown move the ball against a susceptible Boston College secondary? Can Kasim Edebali make a big play or two? Alex Amidon, will we see him make another big play again in a BC uniform? Andre Williams, does he have another 300 yard game in him? Maybe a bit more Myles Willis this weekend? Will Nate Freese continue his "Screw You Groza Award" Campaign with yet another perfect performance? Can David Dudeck please just catch a punt? Will Matt Patchan and Ian White open up two lanes of highway for Andre Williams again? I have been tough on him in the past, but will Andy Gallik have yet another solid performance? If C.J. Brown goes mobile, will Kevin Pierre-Louis be able to track him and prevent the big play?

Lingering Questions

What kind of awful uniform combination will Maryland wear tomorrow? Can we make it two games in a row without a major two minute drill screw up? Defensively, will BC be able to get to the quarterback before he makes plays with his arm or feet?

What To Drink While Sending Off The Twerps To The Big Ten

Flying_dog_logo_medium

Flying Dog Pale Ale. Had to go with a beer from Maryland, but was nervous that there wasn't a good brew made in the state, but then I found this. It's a solid beer, and totally fits the personality of the state. Just start with the label, which is ugly and nightmarish, honestly what the hell is that? It looks like a robot bat picking up a rabid dog that looks like it just ate a small child. So bizarre, kind of like the Terps uniforms or even the state flag (that looks like a bunch of other flags that were sewn together). Can anyone in that state make a label or logo that looks halfway normal? Otherwise the beer itself is pretty delicious and can be found at almost all Liquor stores that have decent selections.

Baldwin Jr's Pregame Preview

CAW CAW!!!!!! BAWDWIN JUNYOR IS SUPER EXCITED TO PRESENT ANOTHER EDICTION OF MY PREVIEW AND THOUGHTS! THIS WEEKEND I MADES IT DOWNS TO MARY-LAND TO VISIT WITH THE TURTLES AFTER BEING INVITED BY KEVIN ANDERSON. WHAT STRUCK ME THE MOSTS WAS THAT THE FACILITIES!

I AM GETTING SO BORED, THERE IS ONLY SO MANY TIMES I CAN RE-READ MIKE LOCKSLEY RECRUITING VIOLATION REPORTS! HELP ME BEECEE INTERRUPTUS! YOU ARE MY ONLY HOPE!

Gametime Song Of The Week

Junior Mafia - Get Money

If you have never heard of Junior Mafia, they are a mostly New York crew that was centered around the late great Notorious B.I.G. The crew consisted of Biggie, Lil Cease, Lil Kim and uh, some other guys. They had a couple of good tracks together, but for the most part their solo stuff was the music you wanted to snag. HOWEVER, this track was not only one of the best songs they created, but possibly one of Biggie's best versus ever. The hook is very catchy, and the song itself is well worth a listen.

Why did I choose it? Because Maryland as an athletic program is seriously in the red, and it would be in their best interest to go out there and "Get Money". Just hope their story doesn't end like Christopher Wallace's did, or like Lil Kim's for that matter. God I can't get that dress she wore that showed over her breasts out of my head. There is a lot of language in this track as usual so of course it is NSFW

New Guy's Alternate Song of the Week

So Long and Farewell from The Sound of Music. That song was pure torture to me when I was in 7th grade music class. I hate The Sound of Music even though it's a staple for this time of year. As such, I hope the last time BC plays Maryland in an ACC game is pure torture for Terps fans. Enjoy being the last place team in the B1G next year since Penn State is still ineligible at life and Rutgers is in New Jersey (therefore, they don't count).

The BC Interruption Prediction Game

I win last week with a predicted score of 28-13 (15 point difference). Grant finishes in second for 10 points, followed by Brian (8), Joe (6), New Guy (4) and Jeff (2). Joe receives an additional six points for getting N.C. State's final point total of 21 points correct.

No shakeup to the leaderboard this week, with New Guy holding a nine point lead over Joe with two regular season games to go.
