Earlier in the week, I wrote an article, claiming that the Maryland Terrapins football team would continue to struggle this season. Unfortunately, I was right. The Terps got manhandled at home Saturday, falling to the 22nd-ranked Michigan Wolverines.

In the early stages of this game, Maryland appeared to be giving Jim Harbaugh‘s Wolverines a run for their money. The game went into halftime with the Terps only trailing 6-0 to Michigan.

Things would change for the worse in the second half for Maryland, however. The Wolverines began to pile it on and the disparity between the two teams became quite evident.

The Terps were abysmal on offense throughout the entire game. Quarterback Caleb Rowe looked terrible as usual, completing just 8 of his 27 pass attempts for a measly 47 yards and three interceptions, before being replaced by Daxx Garman.

It was a pathetic offensive showing, as the Terps could only muster up 105 total yards for the entire game. Each of Maryland’s possessions ended in either a punt or an interception, and they only recorded one first down on the day.

The Terps’ defense was able to keep things pretty interesting in the first half of play, but was worn down as the game progressed. They even forced three Michigan turnovers, but the offense was too inept to capitalize on them.

Randy Edsall and his football team clearly were not prepared for this game and it showed. They will get back to the drawing board this week, but it won’t get any easier, as they prepare to face the No. 1 team in the country: the Ohio State Buckeyes. Yikes.
