Maryland joins Rutgers as the newcomers in the Big Ten. The Terps had a successful close to their stint in the ACC, going 7-6 and snapping a two-year funk. They bring a competitive team into the Big Ten. But the schedule makers did the Terps no favors, and this experienced team will have to claw its way back to bowl eligibility.
Maryland was mediocre on offense in 2013. But they have a veteran quarterback, an experienced offensive line, and depth at the skill positions. They have eight starters back, including quarterback C.J. Brown, and should show significant improvement on that side.
The Terps defense welcomes back nine starters and 13 of their top 15 tacklers. They were very average on defense last year. But removing teams like Florida State, Clemson and Virginia Tech from the schedule should only help.
Maryland drew Wisconsin and Iowa out of the West. They do get Ohio State and Michigan State at home, but the Terps are long shots to win those contests. Add in road games at Syracuse, Indiana, Penn State and Michigan and there aren't a lot of gimmes on this schedule.
I think that Maryland is a strong team and they are going to be very competitive in the Big Ten. But I don't think they will get seven wins this year. I think they will top out at six wins and bowl eligibility. I would play 'under' even though I like this team.
