Daniel Gallen on Fall Camp, Totally Serious Ideas for a Maryland-Rutgers Trophy

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
  • The guys welcome Daniel Gallen to the SVP Lounge
  • 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

Today in the SVP Lounge, CT, Eric and Zack put Red Shell Radio to bed and announce a new era of Maryland podcasting with Talking Terps. In the first episode of the 2016-17 season, the guys go full speed with pads on to preview the 2016 Maryland football season. They discuss the dawn of the D.J. Durkin era, breakdown the preseason story lines, go through the team position-by-position, hash out everyone’s plans for tailgating, comb over the schedule for wins, and put Randy Edsall on a shelf by recounting losses that will haunt their dreams forever.

Topics discussed include:

  • Red Shell Radio is now Talking Terps!
  • Eric is engaged
  • Zack is the new face in the fold
  • Who’s hyped for the D.J. Durkin era?
  • What are you excited for going into the season?
  • Quarterbacks! It can’t be worse than last year, right?! The guys are confident Perry Hills will be the starter
  • Zack points out Walt Bell’s offense should be simpler than dealing with the offense constantly changing last year. Eric is still concerned with need to move the ball through the air when the team is down
  • For the first the first time in god knows how long, Maryland might actually have an effective running game. Ty Johnson could be a lot of fun to watch
  • Zack gets to gush about Randy Edsall one last time as he did recruit offensive lineman well, could finally have a Big Ten caliber line in terms of size and strength
  • The receivers need to get the ball, but if they do, this group is solid
  • D.J. Durkin pulls a coup, nabs JUCO transfer J.C. Jackson. He’s a former four-star recruit and Florida Gator. The guys are hyped
  • CT is glad Maryland is rolling the dice on a guy who’s had issues in the past
  • William Likely is a beast, look for Alvin Hill to play behind him and Jackson. There could be depth issues behind that
  • Durkin added a bunch of freshmen to the secondary that we might see at corner and safety
  • CT not feeling confident about Josh Woods and Denzel Conyers, Zack and Eric don’t share his skepticism
  • Jermaine Carter Jr. could be the best player on the team
  • Zack points out that Durkin likes to play a lot of nickel and dime defense, helps to cut down for the need of depth at linebacker
  • The defensive line has the biggest range in terms of floor and ceiling: They might be terrible, but they also might be pretty decent
  • CT knows nothing about the kickers, Zack and Eric drop knowledge on him. The presumptive starting punter Wade Lees got busted for PEDs in Australia, has a huge leg
  • The guys get into some tailgating talk, CT doesn’t have any wedding conflicts. Eric’s own wedding could be slated for fall 2017
  • Here’s to winning games and not being forever stuck with noon kickoffs
  • The Terps have gone from having one of the hardest schedules in the country to one of the easiest in the conference
  • The first three games of the season against Howard, FIU and UCF are all very winnable. If they want to go bowling, those three are important
  • The first three games of the Big Ten season are also winnable with Purdue, Penn State and Minnesota
  • Maryland’s got a good shot against Purdue at home, Penn State will be tough, Minnesota is about on the Terps level
  • All three guys pick Maryland to go 5-1 in the first half of the season. They are really boring
  • The second half of the season is really damn tough. CT thinks they might not win another game until Rutgers
  • Despite all of our positive talk, this team was bad last year. We’re just looking for improvement. Five wins would be a big
  • The guys decide to put Randy Edsall on a shelf and move on for good by discussing which Randy Edsall loss will haunt their your dreams forever? There are so many horrific examples

  • How much fun was the first half against Nebraska?
  • Golf clap for Jake Layman, he’s really had a great year

  • Big test for the Terps on Saturday facing Purdue on the road

  • Chris and CT would prefer if the Terps played more consistently inside-out
  • No definitive answer as to what’s ailing Melo Trimble, but his performance will determine how far Maryland goes the rest of the way
  • The guys are very pro-Brantley
  • Damonte Dodd had a pair of great defensive games, totaled 8 blocks

  • Losing to Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament last year as tough, getting a crack in the title game would
  • CT thinks a team that plays big would be a good match-up for the Terps in the NCAA tournament. Chris thinks a team that plays fast and forces Maryland to do the same -- like in the loss to UNC -- would be the ideal match-up
  • *Without actually playing UNC
  • CT forgot about watching a Wizards game because he was so engrossed in the horror of the Minnesota loss
  • Michigan win wasn’t wholly inspiring

  • Could you be persuaded that he didn’t do it on purpose?
  • But really how did he not get tossed?
  • Terps play their worst basketball of the year in the first half of the game against Wisconsin
  • Eric thinks there was a rust factor going from playing Purdue to Bowie State and then to playing a hot Badgers team
  • Wisconsin is on a roll right now
