With seniors Jake Layman and Rasheed Sulaimon, junior Robert Carter Jr. and freshman Diamond Stone all scoring in double figures, the Terps led by 28 points at halftime, after allowing season-low 18 points in the first half, and by as many as 42 before playing out an 88-63 victory.
Head up, eyes searching, Maryland point guard Melo Trimble dribbled a few feet past midcourt Sunday when he found freshman center Diamond Stone motoring down the lane, running full speed toward the basket. Trimble kept moving. As two Marshall defenders came toward him, Trimble snapped a perfect one-hand bounce pass through a maze of arms to Stone for a two-handed dunk. The evolution of one of college basketball's best point guards continued.
When Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson introduced DJ Durkin as the university's 36th football coach Thursday, he kept coming back to one thing during his comments: Durkin's pedigree. By now, it's well-known that Durkin coached under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan and Stanford and under Urban Meyer at Florida and Bowling Green. He was on the same staffs as current Stanford coach David Shaw and Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn, who was the defensive coordinator for the Super Bowl XLVIII-champion
It would be difficult not to be charmed by new Maryland football coach DJ Durkin. The 37-year-old former Michigan defensive coordinator is young, energetic, well-spoken and — by some accounts — as competitive as the uber-intense Jim Harbaugh, who he was working for at Michigan when he got the call from Terps athletic director Kevin Anderson. So, he can strike the good first impression off the checklist of important coaching attributes he has brought to Maryland, after Thursday's
Greg Feulner, a candidate for Harford Community College president, emphasized his commitments to lifelong learning, fundraising and increased diversity on campus during a public meet and greet Tuesday afternoon.
Mike Locksley, who went from being Maryland's offensive coordinator to its interim head coach for the past seven weeks after coach Randy Edsall was fired, interviewed for Edsall's old job Monday, a source familiar with the process said.
Harford Community College announced Wednesday that its presidential search committee has identified four finalists for the college presidency and will hold open public forums for each candidate when he or she visits the campus next week.
Arnold A. Reiling, a retired petroleum salesman who became a naturalized citizen while serving in the American Army during World War II, died Oct. 28 of congestive heart failure at his home in Pikesville. He was 93.
It would have been easy for DeAndre Lane to transfer and leave Maryland at any point during the past two years. After appearing in four games while battling a hamstring injury during his freshman year in 2013, he appeared in only the season opener last season. He could have elected to go down a level to the Football Championship Subdivision or try his luck somewhere else where he could play immediately. But Lane decided to stay. He stuck it out. And now, three-quarters into the way season and
Two months after having a steady stream of four- and five-star recruits visit Maryland in a short amount of time, the men's basketball program settled for one of those who visited and one who had previously committed. As expected, the Maryland men's basketball team on Wednesday signed both Kevin Huerter, a 6-foot-6 combo guard from Clifton Park, N.Y., and Anthony Cowan Jr., a 5-11 point guard from Bowie.
Gilman's two-time All-Metro defensive tackle Ellison Jordan found out in the middle of the season that he had been selected to play in the Under Armour All-America Football Game in January, but he kept it a secret until Monday.
That line of thinking, albeit premature in this instance, brings us to the spring and summer of 2015, to the University of Maryland, and to two high-profile players heading into their respective drafts: wide receiver Stefon Diggs and outfielder LaMonte Wade.
Maryland has already faced a laundry list of the nation¿s top defensive playmakers whose names are dotting mid-season watch lists for honors such as the Bednarik Award or the Lombardi Award. Ohio State¿s Joey Bosa bullied the Terps offensive line on Oct. 10, while Penn State¿s Carl Nassib did the same two weeks later. There was Iowa¿s Nate Meier and an assortment of talented Michigan linemen.
Things have been quiet in College Park the past couple of weeks regarding the search for fired football coach Randy Edsall's successor. Athletic director Kevin Anderson, whose own legacy with the Terps will certainly be tied to this hire, has declined to discuss who he might be looking at since saying on the day of Edsall's firing that Maryland wanted a coach "to excite the fan base." Many names have surfaced in a variety of media outlets, a few that seem to have validity and others that appear
After its move to the Big Ten Conference, Maryland gets the opportunity to play in some of the most venerable venues in college football: The Big House in Ann Arbor, Mich.; The Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio; Beaver Stadium in Happy Valley. The massive crowds and history add another dimension to the contests.
Jake Funk had been developing through his entire career at Damascus, putting up eye-catching numbers at running back as the Swarmin' Hornets racked up wins and marched through the playoffs, but the attention he was receiving from colleges didn't match the level he thought he was capable of playing. He hit the midway point of his senior season with an offer to play linebacker from Wisconsin, offers from the three service academies and offers from other low-level Football Bowl Subdivision schools,
When Mike Locksley takes the field as Maryland's interim coach against Penn State on Saturday, he's not worried about getting butterflies or having any nerves in his first game as a team's head coach since 2011. He's just expecting to have "that rock-gut feeling" with all of the scenarios for the afternoon flashing through his mind. Most of all, Locksley's excited to be back on the field after two whirlwind weeks.
During an illustrious career at Gilman, Penn State offensive lineman Brian Gaia captured three MIAA "A" Conference titles, earned all-state honors three times and was named an All-Metro by The Baltimore Sun twice. But he never had the opportunity to play in the stadium of his favorite team, the Baltimore Ravens. That will change Saturday when Penn State takes on Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium in a Big Ten Conference tilt.
Audrey Snyder is the Penn State football beat writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. With Maryland set to face Penn State this weekend at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, she was kind enough to chat on the phone for a while about the upcoming matchup and answer some questions about the Nittany Lions.
To borrow a term Maryland interim coach Mike Locksley has used a few times, the past few weeks have been a whirlwind for the Terps. From reports of former coach Randy Edsall's imminent firing days before a trip to play No. 1 Ohio State to pushing those Buckeyes into the third quarter to Edsall's walk-off press conference to his subsequent firing the next day, there has been little normalcy for Maryland.
Most college coaching searches are conducted over weeks, sometimes days. To find a replacement for Maryland football coach Randy Edsall, athletic director Kevin Anderson will have a couple of months. In some ways, it might make the search easier, given that Anderson will have a lot more time than he did when he hired Edsall to replace Ralph Friedgen in 2011. In other ways, maneuvering through the process after a midseason firing is "tricky," according to former Wisconsin athletic director Pat Richter.
In his comments after coach Randy Edsall was fired, Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said the schools is looking for its next football coach to be someone to "excite the fan base," particularly on the offensive side of the ball. College football is filled with young offensive minds right now, many of whom have recently ascended to head coaching jobs.
McDonogh¿s Eric Burrell went into the football recuiting process with an open mind. Never a big follower of college school football until he started getting recruited, Burrell announced that he had committed to the Badgers.
Less than four months after signing a contract extension that could have paid him an additional $7.5 million had he stayed on the job through the 2019 season, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall was fired.
While he plans to keep a similar structure for the final seven weeks and six games of the regular season, Mike Locksley said he told the players during a meeting Sunday that things are going to be different under him than they were under Edsall, who had the reputation of a more strict disciplinarian.
Whether he was coaching his final game at Maryland on Saturday afternoon, Randy Edsall and the Terps turned in an inspired performance in pushing the nation's top team on the road with a hostile sellout crowd in the stands.
