A surprise on Maryland's injury report: linebacker Kenny Tate is listed as doubtful for Georgia Tech. We don't know why yet. Tate had nine tackles and an interception against Towson last week. He's 11th in the ACC in tackles at 8.8 per game. His absence would be a blow to a defense already without linebacker Darin Drakeford and defensive lineman Andre Monroe, among others. Maryland started three first-year players on defense against Towson last week. Tate plays a hybrid position called "Star.

TV: ESPN2 About Georgia Tech (4-4 ACC): As usual, the Yellow Jackets had no trouble using their triple-option offense to pile up gaudy rushing statistics. Georgia Tech led the nation with 327 rushing yards per game. But the Yellow Jackets struggled to stop opposing offenses, especially down the stretch. Four of Georgia Tech's final five opponents — Duke was the lone exception — scored at least 27 points.

ATLANTA -- It was evident by the way Mark Turgeon spoke - with his head lowered and in an almost disbelieving tone - that the Maryland coach considered it far too late in the season to still be harping on the same issues that have plagued his young team for weeks. Lack of inside toughness, selfishness on offense, missed layups - Turgeon recited all the usual culprits following Maryland's 63-61 loss at Philips Arena on Saturday to a last-place Georgia Tech team that had lost 10 of its previous 11 games.

There's no way to sugar-coat it: the Maryland Terps are a mess right now. They were absolutely horrible in that 78-68 loss to Georgia Tech in Atlanta last night. And if they don't straighten out some major issues immediately, the rest of the season could go completely off the rails. Guard play, shot selection, working the ball inside - Maryland was awful in each category. Junior point guard Pe'Shon Howard is struggling so much with his passing and his shot that he's a liability when he's in there.

Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns, Josh Nesbitt accounted for three scores and No. 7 Georgia Tech clinched a spot in the ACC championship game by routing host Duke, 49-10, on Saturday. Orwin Smith returned a kickoff 83 yards to spark the slow-starting Yellow Jackets (10-1, 7-1). Their offense took over after that, scoring touchdowns on five of the following six possessions, rushing for 306 yards and shutting out the Blue Devils in the final three quarters. Nesbitt was 6 of 10 for 195 yards with touchdown passes covering 32 yards to Stephen Hill and 75 yards to Demaryius Thomas, and had a 2-yard touchdown run. Dwyer, the reigning ACC player of the year, had scoring runs of 3 and 13 yards in his fourth consecutive 100-yard game.

Fans couldn't have helped but notice how Sean Mosley scored the game's final seven points, including four free throws and a big 3-pointer with 2:36 to go. But I hope they also noticed the senior's defense on Glen Rice Jr., who entered the game having scored 28 points in a loss to Duke and 22 in a win over North Carolina State. Rice's line on Sunday? He was 2-for-8 from the floor, including 0-for-3 on 3-pointers, and finished with six points. No wonder first-year Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory said Mosley "was the toughest kid on the court,” which is high praise in the ACC. I featured Mosley in my updated story about a game in which neither team could eclipse 30 percent shooting in the first half.

At a time when the stability of Maryland's men's basketball program has been in question, Robert Carter may have provided the best form of support for embattled coach Mark Turgeon. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound power forward - considered one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's most promising big men before announcing plans to transfer - signed with the Terps on Friday. He then praised Turgeon for his vision and said he wasn't concerned about the fact that five scholarship players transferred from Maryland after the season “I feel like he's doing and they're doing what's best for the program,” Carter said of Turgeon, who just completed his third season at Maryland.

Maryland baseball coach John Szefc paused and looked forward, trying to articulate just how special it was to be part of the Terps ' first NCAA tournament team in 43 years. Szefc was just 4 years old when Maryland lost its first two games in Gastonia, N.C., in the 1971 national tourney. "It's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around that," Szefc said. Since then, the program has endured 27 losing seasons in 43 years, failing to compete with perennial Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouses such as North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Virginia and Florida State.
