Saturday October 1st 2016 will mark only the second meeting between the Maryland Terrapins and the Purdue Boilermakers.Their last meeting occurred 10 years ago in the Champs Sports Bowl newly named the Russell Athletics Bowl.
The Boilermakers roll into town with a (2-1) record as they’re coming off a win over a low end Nevada team (24-14) in front of 41,000 fans at Rose-Ade Stadium. Sophomore David Blough threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. He connected with Senior Bilal Marshall five times for 82 yards and a score. 44 of those recieving yards came on one play in the first quarter. The ground game had its success as Senior Markell Jones rushed for over 100 yards and a score.
The Boilermakers defense held the Huskies to under 300 yards of total offense while they totaled nearly 500 yards in offense.
After a week of rest the Terrapins are off to a (3-0) start with their latest win coming in a thriller versus the University of Central Florida Knights (30-24) in double overtime fashion. The Terrapins stuck with a run-heavy scheme consisting of their arsenal of backs which were very successful. Among those backs Freshman Lorenzo Harrison rushed for 77 yards on 15 carries and a score. Perry Hills finished with just over a 100 yards through the air and completing only 10 of 23 attempts. Hills was not given much time to drop back as the Knights brung pressure nearly every time, the front four in particular who tallied 4 sacks.
The Terrapins defense gave up over 500 yards in total offense while only adding nearly 400 yards in total of their own on offense. Your probably wondering why the numbers don’t add up right? Well the misleading numbers are due to the many turnovers by Freshman quarterback McKenzie Milton. Milton was responsible for 6 fumbles and an interception.
On a positive note, despite the turnovers Milton didn’t hesitate to put the ball in the air. Confidence will help keep the young Freshman rolling. The Terrapins’ Senior Will Likely continues to disrupt the opposing teams gameplan. His athleticism goes a long way. He will likely be seen at nickelback, slot reciever, halfback, as well as punt and kick returner. I believe he will be the difference maker if the Terrapins were to have struggles.
ESPN has UMD with a 73% to 27% edge to win over PU.

I agree that he’s no Ali but Floyds defense is too good. He has perfected the shoulder roll!
Mike Tyson isn’t just backing Manny Pacquiao to defeat Floyd Mayweather in Saturday’s match — the former undefeated heavyweight champion wants Pacquiao to knock out his “very small, scared” competitor.
Tyson slammed Mayweather in a video interview with Undisputed Champion Network posted online Wednesday after being asked about Mayweather’s claim last week that he is greater than boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
“He’s very delusional. If he was anywhere near that realm of ‘greater than Ali,’ he’d be able to take his kids to school by himself,” Tyson said of Mayweather. “He’s a very small, scared man.”
Tyson didn’t elaborate further about his entertaining comments regarding the undefeated Mayweather’s school-going habits, but he did predict the match wouldn’t last long. “I think it’s gonna be a knockout,” he said. “I don’t think it’s gonna go the distance.”
Tyson told reporters again Thursday that he’s hoping for a Pacquiao victory…

We all know the tale of the adorable and talented orphan “Annie” who longed for the reunion with her family. With all of the hype surrounding the new Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) versus the old Annie (Aileen Quinn), how do they compare? Who will capture the hearts of many this season?
The original Annie musical aired June of 1982. It received 2 oscars and 5 times the nominations. The budget of the movie totaled at $50 million yet they claimed $57 million is gross in which half a million was made on opening weekend. Now that’s what I call a treat!
Now on the other hand, Annie of the 2014 also has had plenty of chatter surrounding it. This years musical has been nominated for 2 oscars and 5 other nominations for the best holiday picture of the year, but it’s money that speaks louder than words. Annie of 2014 costs over $65million to be produced but they went home with not nearly as much on opening weekend racking up just under $16million.
Despite the decline on pay day I wouldn’t say Annie hasn’t left her mark in 2014. Annie lives in the heart of all its viewers. With the urge to get up and dance or sing in any given scene, you were sure to leave theaters with the joy and much appreciation for your own family. Let’s cherish the moment we spend with family for the holidays and take care of the Annie’s in the world. The warmth of a home can go a long way. It’s a “hard knock life” but it doesn’t have to be. May Annie live on!
