Outlook: The Terps have heard the doubters, who are providing the necessary fuel. No one is saying that replacing the losses on attack and defense will be easy, but the team is deep. If Chanenchuk can develop a chemistry in the midfield, Cummings could find a permanent home at attack. The saving grace for the defense is the presence of Amato.
