5 questions for the terps

August 28, 2008|By Jeff Barker

How many quarterbacks will we see this season and in what roles?

Will Jordan Steffy stick? Will Chris Turner re-emerge? Will the situation present itself to allow multidimensional Josh Portis to show his stuff? Possibilities abound.

Can Maryland win one of the biggies on its road schedule?

The away games on the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule are daunting. A truly successful season would include a win at Clemson or Virginia Tech. Is that dreaming?

Does speed really kill?

Maryland has speed all over the field - one of the biggest reasons coaches are optimistic about the season.

How forgiving are the fans?

Fans have aligned themselves with quarterbacks the way delegates commit to presidential candidates. Can one candidate - er, quarterback - unite the masses?

Can Maryland sell out its suites?

As of Media Day on Aug. 4, the university had sold 28 of the 64 suites that will be part of the newly renovated Tyser Tower. Fans will want to buy more than popcorn if they like the product on the field.
