Today in the SVP Lounge, CT and Eric talk to Daniel Gallen – who’s been covering the Terps for the Baltimore Sun and Carroll County Times – about what he’s seen at Maryland fall camp, how Perry Hills looked at Saturday’s open scrimmage, what’s surprised him thus far, reasons to worry as the season progresses and why he’s hemorrhaging followers. Plus, CT and Eric are going to Orioles-Nationals in D.C., discussing a potential Maryland-Rutgers trophy game, and Eric has never seen GUTS.
Topics discussed include:
- CT and Eric hung out on H Street in D.C. last weekend
- Eric went to Camden Yards for Orioles-Nationals, he and CT both going to the final game of the series in D.C.
- CT always buys Flying Dog’s Snake Dog at Nationals Park. The high ABV gives you a lot of bang for
- Rutgers wants a rivalry trophy with Maryland, Eric is intrigued
- CT says it should be a piece of asphalt like the Aggro Crag from GUTS. Eric doesn’t know what GUTS is

- From a guy who’s been around the football program for several years, what the difference in the vibe between Randy Edsall and D.J. Durkin?
- Gallen says that Perry Hills looks like a capable quarterback, there was less of an overhaul this year that last. If we see improvement, it will be on the little things he did wrong last year
- Caleb Rowe hasn’t been as much of a factor in the quarterback competition due to injury
- What’s Gallen’s running back pecking order? Ty Johnson looks great, having lost 21 pounds during the offseason. Might see as many as five guys, at least early on
- Gallen is most surprised to see Shane Cockerille playing linebacker after playing quarterback. Team intensity, body transformation is very noticeable. Worries that the intensity could be backfire, it’ll be interesting to see how they respond to superior teams in tough spots
- Denzel Conyers should be back for Howard
- CT wonders if Gallen’s tired of Maryland sports, he says no, will continue to watch
- Gallen’s lost followers since he took his new job
