Maryland 38, NC State 31

Box Score

I don't really know what to say at this point.  It's never surprising anymore--how could it be?  But the disappointment, the anger, the frustration...they're always independent of expectation.  I felt good about today.  After the first quarter, I even let myself think it might be easy.  

I should have guessed that another second-quarter lull was in order, this one a near-total collapse that completely turned the game around for Maryland.  The offense sputtered; Jeff Ruiz shanked a punt; we had a field goal blocked. The defense did pretty well under the circumstances but was put in a bad spot too many times.  These things have come to define this team.

Who's ready for the Champs Sports Bowl?  I hear the Big East is really compelling this year.
