Battle of the Uniforms

Well it’s official for the Irish.  Kelly green jerseys, bright gold pants and new shiny helmets with a big green shamrock on the sides and a leprechaun slapped on the back for good measure.  Even new fancy gloves. 
What it takes to motivate kids these days to play football.   Check it all out Here.

Now what is Maryland going to wear to upstage the Irish?

More importantly, what is Maryland going to do on the field to upset the Irish?  Not much, they are full injuries, coaching problems, and nothing to play for but a butt-whipping from the Irish.

Tough game to call since a strange team took the field in the first half against the Deacon Demons.  It reminded me of a problem Lou Holtz had in getting his teams ready against an inferior opponent.  His teams had the tendency to play to the level of the opposition.  As a fan it was most frustrating because you knew the Irish were so much better.
Can Head Coach Brian Kelly (no relation to the color) wake his team up?  (It took a half-time locker room chat last week)

Can Quarterback Tommy Rees quit throwing picks?  (We doubt it)

Can Defensive Coordinator Bob Diaco hobble together a defensive front seven smitten by injury?  (Good luck)

Can the Irish out-fashion the Terrapins?  (Not likely from what we’ve seen this year coming out of College Park)

We would really like to see a blow-out early and get Dayne Crist going in the 3rd quarter and Andrew Hendrix running in the 4th.

This game and next week will be the best chances for the younger guys and walk-ons to see action.  Sure hope the Irish come out strong and keep it that way.

Go IRISH Beat the Turtles.
