TOWSON CONCLUDES 10-GAME ROAD SWING AT TEMPLE WEDNESDAY NIGHT Tigers Seeking .500 Record During Season-Opening Road Trip
PHILADELPHIA Pa. – The Towson men’s basketball team will conclude its 10-game road swing on Wednesday as the Tigers travel to the Liacouras Center to take on the Temple Owls.
The game is set to tip at 7 p.m.
The Tigers (4-5) are coming off two of their best efforts of the season last week as they defeated defending America East champions Vermont (68-64) on Wednesday before narrowly falling at No. 15 Georgetown (46-40) on Saturday.
Junior forward Jerrelle Benimon was named the Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week yesterday after averaging 20.0 points and 13.0 rebounds in those contests. Benimon has registered a double-double in five of his last seven games.
Freshman guard Jerome Hairston (9.8 ppg) is second on the team in scoring and tops the team in assists (23) and steals (19). Junior guard Mike Burwell (9.2 ppg), junior forward Marcus Damas (8.3 ppg) and graduate student Bilal Dixon (7.1 ppg, 6.8 rpg) round out the Tiger starters.
Temple (6-1) is coming off its first loss of the season, a 90-67 setback against No. 2 Duke.
The Owls, under the direction of seventh-year head coach Fran Dunphy, are led be the play of senior guards Scootie Randall (15.1 pgg) and Khalif Wyatt. Besides topping the team in scoring, Randall also leads Temple in rebounding (7.1 rpg.), three-pointers (15) and minutes played (35.7 mpg). Wyatt (13.9 ppg) paces the Owls and ranks sixth in the Atlantic 10 Conference in assists, averaging 4.6 per game.

Mids Consistently Among Nation’s Top Rushing Teams
• Over the last 11 years, Navy has consistently been one of the top rushing teams in the country, never finishing lower than sixth.
• In 2002, Navy finished third in the country in rushing, averaging 270.8 yards per game.

It is the second-most yards rushing by the slots in the triple option era. In 2008 the slot backs rushed for 381 yards against Towson, thanks in large part to Shun White’s school-record 348 yards rushing.
• Over the last two games, the Navy slot backs have rushed for 514 yards and three touchdowns on 65 carries (7.9 yards per carry).

Ryan Chell and I made the drive up to Filthy Saturday, and I will admit I expected much worse than what I got.
As Darren Pang would say, “holy jumpin’!” Perry Hills wasn’t great-but he made some nice throws. Marcus Leak was fantastic, and Stefon Diggs more than made up for an earlier fumble with that spectacular catch you saw there at the end of the game.
Most of us would have settled for just not giving up 12 rushing touchdowns like it felt like they did a year ago against the Owls. Instead we got Randy Edsall’s first EVER road win.
While I was in the “Illadelph” (to quote The Roots), I had a tasty chicken cheesesteak and a pretzel. I did not however get to stop at the place The Nasty One recommended, “Talk of the Town” for one of their steaks.
Anything anybody can tell me about this place?
I was a little disappointed we didn’t bump into Temple fan and friend of “The Reality Check” Bill Cosby at the game, but apparently he was busy looking dapper at UMass…
The Jets didn’t just look BAD in the preseason, they looked like one of the worst teams in the history of football. They scored one offensive touchdown. They looked to have the offensive ineptitude of a JV football team, but at one of those schools where they only have like 300 students so the JV team is mostly made up of girls and kids that thought they were trying out for badminton.
And then, this.
I’m not as baffled as you. I’m significantly more baffled. I had sort of assumed the Jets were just going to panic and line Tim Tebow up at every position to try to set some sort of bizarre record because they cared so little about winning.
What the eff? I PICKED THE JETS TO WIN?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!!?
Heh. I knew it all along. And you doubted.
Here’s what Thurman Thomas thought about the Bills’ effort…
But other than that I hear he enjoyed it. Before we move on, here’s Bills TE Scott Chandler knocking down Rex Ryan…
Here’s Antonio Cromartie flipping into the endzone…
And after the game Bart Scott announced a media boycott. Who says he didn’t learn anything from Ed Reed while in Charm City?
For like five seconds as it was storming in New Jersey Saturday there was a thought Syracuse could hang with USC. Nope.
There was a bit of a weather issue in the New York area Saturday (hell…in the Baltimore area too). You might have noticed it if you were watching the U.S. Open semifinal between Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych…
You know how good Calvin Johnson is? He had over 100 yards receiving Sunday and NO ONE noticed. No one except Matthew Stafford of course, who needed somewhere to throw the ball to help move past his THREE interceptions…
What you missed in that highlight package? Cortland Finnegan chucked an ear pad from Megatron’s helmet to the Rams’ sideline. Dirty? Clever? Rhubarb?
Here’s a picture that shows the Lions cost Floyd Mayweather $100,000 during the first half of the game…
Meanwhile…in the Windy City…the Brandon Marshall experiment is working thus far. Who would have ever thought a tall receiver would be something a NFL team would actually want?
And if I were to ask you, “who is the longest tenured player in Chicago Bears history?”, what would your answer be?
Would your answer have been this?
That’s LS Patrick Mannelly, who began his 15th season with the Bears today.
Kicking Off: Maryland held on to beat Temple 36-27 to improve to 2-0 on the season … quarterback Perry Hills went 11 of 21 for 190 yards, two passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown … running back Justus Pickett ran for 69 yards and a touchdown, and Stefon Diggs had 135 all-purpose yards on nine touches … the defense forced two early turnovers and was once again tough against the run, holding Temple to 52 yards on 39 carries.
Forced Turnovers Set Tone: Maryland’s defense set the tone right away by forcing a fumble on Temple’s first offensive play of the game. Joe Vellano forced the fumble by running back Matt Brown, and Demetrius Hartsfield recovered it. Then, on Temple’s second drive, Cole Farrand forced a fumble on third down that A.J. Francis recovered.
Defense Locks Down: The Terps held Temple to just 34 total yards and two first downs in the first half. Temple had just 28 rushing yards on 22 carries (1.3 ypc) and six passing yards as Maryland won the time of possession battle 16:21 to 13:39. The second half was more of the same as the Owls had just 24 rushing yards on 17 carries. For the game, Temple had just 52 rushing yards on 39 carries (1.3 ypc).
Leak Steps Up: Sophomore receiver Marcus Leak had three receptions for 90 yards, and two of them were big plays. Leak had a 32-yard TD reception to give Maryland a 17-3 lead in the second quarter; he also had a big momentum play in the third quarter. On a third-and-17, Leak caught a jump ball from Hills for a 39-yard reception, and Maryland went on to kick a field goal on the drive. The catch came right after Temple scored a TD as a result of a Maryland turnover right after halftime.
Showing Improvement on Offense: Maryland showed improvement on offense in week two of the season. The Terps’ 12 first downs in the first half nearly matched their total of 13 in game one against William & Mary. Maryland finished with 334 yards of total offense and 19 first downs.
Diggs’ Drive: Maryland’s first touchdown drive came in large part due to the efforts of Stefon Diggs. The freshman set up the drive with a 27-yard punt return that gave Maryland the ball at the their own 43. He then had a 12-yard rush and a 12-yard reception before Perry Hills hit Matt Furstenburg in the end zone on a beautiful pass for a 22-yard touchdown.
More Diggs: Despite a fumble on a punt in the fourth quarter, Diggs had a solid all-around game. He had nine touches for 135 yards, an average of 15 yards per touch (3 receptions for 59 yards, 2 rushes for 17 yards, 3 punt returns for 34 yards, 1 kickoff return for 25 yards). Diggs also had a 38-yard catch on third down with under 4:00 left in the game that setup a touchdown and helped preserve the win.
Safety: Maryland got its first safety in exactly five years when Temple’s center snapped it over the head of QB Chris Coyer and into the end zone in the second quarter. The Terps’ last safety came against FIU on Sept. 8, 2007.
Turnovers: The Terps were able to hold on to win despite losing the turnover battle for the second straight week. Maryland had four fumbles lost, while Temple lost two fumbles and threw an interception.
Tidbits: Brad Craddock’s 45-yard field goal in the first quarter was the first of his career … Perry Hills’ 22-yard TD pass to Matt Furstenburg early in the second quarter was the first of his career … Maryland’s 23 points in second quarter its most in one quarter since they had 28 on 10/30/10 vs. Wake Forest … when Temple QB Chris Coyer hit C.J. Hammond for a 62-yard touchdown in the third quarter, it represented the first points Maryland’s defense allowed this season that didn’t come off turnovers … with 73 all-purpose yards Justus Pickett surpassed 1,000 career all-purpose yards … the Terps finished with three sacks and seven tackles for loss … Cole Farrand had a game-high six tackles … A.J. Francis had a blocked field goal, sack and fumble recovery.
COLLEGE PARK, MD. - The University of Maryland football team takes to the road for the first time of the 2012 season when it faces Temple at Lincoln Financial Field Saturday at noon. The Terrapins will look to build upon a 7-6 season-opening win over William & Mary in which 14 players made their Maryland debut, including 12 true freshmen. The defense kept the team in the game, allowing Justus Pickett to run for the game-winning score in the fourth quarter.
• A dominant defensive effort by the Terps enabled the win in week one. Linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield made 13 tackles and helped seal the game with a fumble recovery late in the fourth quarter. Defensive lineman Joe Vellano had 11 stops – two of them for loss – and an interception. In all, the defense recorded 10 tackles for loss, four sacks and held William & Mary to just 2.5 yards per carry (41 attempts, 104 yards). Hartsfield, the ACC’s active career leader in tackles, and Vellano, a 2011 second team All-American, highlight the 10 starters returning to the Maryland defense this season.
• The offense was set to return five starters, including three of its top four receivers from last season in wideouts Kevin Dorsey and Kerry Boykins, and tight end Matt Furstenburg. Junior C.J. Brown, who started five games in 2011 and set the Maryland single-season rushing yards record by a quarterback, was set to assume No. 1 quarterback duties before suffering a torn ACL in a non-contact drill on Aug. 14. Injuries hit both sides of the ball hard during the preseason, as 10 potential starters missed the William & Mary game with various injuries and ailments (see note page 2)..
• Still, Maryland hopes a number of key returnees, combined with a highly touted 2012 recruiting class, will help it reach postseason play for the ninth time in the last 12 years. In addition to Vellano and Hartsfield several playmakers are back on defense. In the secondary, Eric Franklin and Dexter McDougle have plenty of experience, having both started every game last year. Franklin, a senior who has played in 28 career games, led the team in solo tackles (64), ranked second in total tackles (106) and tied for second on the team with four pass breakups. McDougle, meanwhile, led the team with six pass breakups and tied for the team lead with three interceptions. The Terps also welcome back linebackers Darin Drakeford and Alex Twineand defensive lineman A.J. Francis, all of whom have starting experience. Drakeford is a disruptive force, tying for the league lead last season with four forced fumbles. As a true freshman last year, Twine ended the season as the starter at Will linebacker and averaged 9.8 tackles in his four starts. Francis has played in each of the last 38 games and has 24 career starts.
• Quarterback Perry Hills, who against William & Mary became Maryland’s first true freshman starter since Latrez Harrison in 1999, will direct the offense. Hills overcame a slow start against the Tribe by leading the Terps on a 10-play, 69-yard TD drive in the fourth quarter that proved to be the game winner. Maryland has a young, talented group of skill players around Hills. Pickett, a sophomore, is the veteran in the backfield and is joined by three freshmen in Brandon Ross, Albert Reid and Wes Brown. At receiver, sophomore Marcus Leak and freshman Stefon Diggs each had three receptions in the season opener.
• Diggs is also the kickoff and punt returner, and averaged 16.6 yards on three punt returns against William & Mary. Nathan Renfro secured the punting duties and performed well, averaging 53.0 yards on four punts with a long of 60. His best punt came late in the fourth quarter with Maryland holding on to a one-point lead. Renfro had his 57-yard punt downed at the 2-yard line with 2:17 remaining to help seal the win. With senior Nick Ferrara out of the season opener, freshman Brad Craddock handled the kickoff and place-kicking duties.
Quick Hitters • Seven players made their first career starts on Saturday against William & Mary: quarterback Perry Hills, running back Albert Reid, safety Sean Davis, defensive back Jeremiah Johnson, linebacker Cole Farrand, nose tackle Darius Kilgo and offensive lineman Nick Klemm.
• In addition to the seven first-time starters, 14 players saw their first action against William & Mary. And of the 44 players that saw time against the Tribe, 25 of them were underclassmen.
• Maryland has 14 true freshmen listed on its two-deep (excluding return men), which is the third most in the FBS (Colorado – 16, Texas – 15).
• Maryland allowed William & Mary to gain just 229 yards of total offense. That’s its best total defensive performance since surrendering 115 to Wake Forest on Oct. 30, 2010.
• The Terps held William & Mary to 2.5 yards per carry. Additionally, 28 of the Tribe’s 41 rushes were for three yards or less, including 15 of 19 in the first half.
• Demetrius Hartsfield recorded a double-digit tackle game against William & Mary by finishing with 13. Hartsfield had seven double-digit efforts in nine games last season. Hartsfield also had a fumble recovery with 1:11 left that sealed the win.
• Head coach Randy Edsall handed out game balls for the win over William & Mary. Marcus Leak got the game ball for offense, Joe Vellano for defense and Nathan Renfro for special teams. Renfro also received honorable mention punter of the week from CollegeFootballPerformance.com.
• Maryland was hit hard by injuries in the preseason. Thirteen players missed the season opener due to various injuries and ailments: defensive linemen Keith Bowers, Isaiah Ross and Andre Monroe; defensive backs Isaac Goins, A.J. Hendy and Matt Robinson; linebackers Kenneth Tate and Abner Logan; quarterbacks C.J. Brown and Dustin Dailey, running back Brandon Ross; offensive lineman Josh Cary; and place-kicker Nick Ferrara. Both Monroe and Brown are out for the season.
• Perry Hills became the first true freshman starter at quarterback for Maryland since Latrez Harrison in 1999. He also became the first freshman to start a season opener since redshirt freshman Calvin McCall on Sept. 2, 1999, in a 6-0 win over Temple.
Maryland-Temple Series History
• Maryland leads the all-time series with Temple, 6-1. The series dates back to 1997; the schools played four years in a row from 1997-2000. Temple’s only win in the series came last year, when it beat the Terps 38-7 in College Park. Maryland is 3-0 when playing at Temple.
• The last meeting in Philadelphia was Oct. 8, 2005. Mario Merrills ran for three touchdowns and Sam Hollenbach passed for 228 yards in a 38-7 victory.

I once stumbled into the Ukrainian Festival after a Ravens game once a few years back. I couldn’t have had more fun. There was dancing, sausage and potato pancakes. It was a lot like my 13th birthday party…except we did all of those things at the old Funjungle in Perry Hall.
And since there’s at least half a chance I’ll forget to say something about these guys during the course of RennFest, I should probably do it now. These guys are Hack and Slash. They’re humorous fellas…
