It was October 2011, and I remember standing just off the field inside Doak Campbell Stadium for media interviews after Florida State's 41-16 victory over the Terps . It was a rough day for the Terps. I remember that coach Randy Edsall made a memorably candid statement. "We just don't match up with the speed and athleticism of Clemson and Florida State. That's what we are going to have to do from a recruiting standpoint," said Edsall. He sounded determined, almost defiant, about the ultimate course of his program.

Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley has orally committed to Florida State, picking the Seminoles over Maryland and Texas. Locksley, the son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, is rated by ESPN as the 11 th -best dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2015 and the seventh-best player in Maryland. He recently dropped the Terps from consideration, he said. "They kind of were my dark horse throughout this whole process," Locksley said. "They were a school I felt could, out of nowhere, just pop up, but we kind of decided together that it was real hard to play for your dad, especially at the level that he's at and [Maryland]

It's quite a short list of Johns Hopkins basketball players who have gone on to coach at Division I college basketball schools in the past 25 years. It's such a small list, in fact, that Florida State assistant coach Andy Enfield -- a prodigious college shooter who is the only player to score more than 2,000 career points at Hopkins -- commands half of the list all by himself. Mike Blaine, a UMES assistant, is the other occupant. "Not a lot of guys that played there went into coaching," said Enfield, who helped lead the Seminoles to 25 wins last season, tied for second-most in school history, and 22 this season.

The Terps open their final Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball tournament with a second-round game against Florida State at noon Thursday. No. 8-seeded Maryland (17-14, 9-9 ACC) and the No. 9 Seminoles (18-12, 9-9) split the regular-season series. The winner faces No. 1 Virginia in the quarterfinals Friday at noon. To preview the matchup, we traded emails with Brendan Sonnone, who covers Florida State for the Orlando Sentinel . Check out more of his work on the Sentinel's "Chopping Block" blog . Baltimore Sun: Florida State took care of Maryland pretty easily down in Tallahassee in January, then the Terps won by a dozen in College Park.

Maryland plays a Florida State team Wednesday night that is top-ranked in the nation in defense and features a 26-year-old shot blocker who never played in high school or the Amateur Athletic Union but honed his game on military bases in the Middle East, where the temperature climbed above 115 degrees. The Seminoles (19-7, 9-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) build themselves around size and length - attributes that are an integral part of the coaching staff's plan of complicating life for opposing scorers.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The image of the Atlantic Coast Conference is much like a stockbroker's.Efficient, coldly calculating, slow to change, but quietly effective. And, above all, conservative.So, how, many college basketball observers wondered, would the staid ACC welcome the brash and flashy newcomers at Florida State during their inaugural season in the league?A little more than halfway through their first trip around theconference, the No. 23 Seminoles (14-5) have received favorable reviews.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Long live the Bowl Coalition, the ingenious playoff format responsible for college football's newest rallying cry, "We're No. 2!"That's what the Florida State players were saying yesterday after their 31-24 loss to Notre Dame. Actually, they were pleading, because dropping to No. 2 is their only hope of returning to No. 1.Confused? Don't sweat it. The national championship now figures to be decided in a Fiesta Bowl rematch of these teams Jan. 1. Two games of the century within seven weeks, what a country.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- On a recruiting trip to North Carolina last Monday, Florida State basketball coach Pat Kennedy had dinner with Jim Valvano, for whom he was an assistant at Iona many years ago.Valvano won an NCAA championship at N.C. State before becoming a television analyst. He told Kennedy, whose Seminoles are newcomers to the Atlantic Coast Conference, he would be measured in his new conference by a variety of things but none more important than how he does against Dean Smith. And then Valvano gave his old assistant some pointers on how to deal with Smith and his undefeated, No. 5 North Carolina Tar Heels.

MIAMI -- A year ago, Dan Mowrey played bodyguard for Gerry Thomas after his teammate narrowly missed a 34-yard field goal in the waning moments of Florida State's 17-16 defeat to Miami.It was a class move, considering that Mowrey had lost his job to Thomas after blowing some kicks, but not games, earlier in the season. "He's a friend," Mowrey said at the time.Yesterday, nobody shielded Mowrey after he badly missed a 39-yard field goal with three seconds left that would have tied second-ranked Miami.

COLLEGE PARK - For Maryland point guard Seth Allen, the lasting memory of his team's 24-point loss at Florida State nearly a month ago was of the Seminoles hitting one 3-pointer after another. “I just remember walking in and they hit every shot,” Allen recalled Saturday at Comcast Center. “It was crazy. It was like 3, 3, 3. They really embarrassed us at Florida State.” Allen gave the Seminoles a similar memory. His career-high 32-point performance helped lead the Terps to an 83-71 victory and avengethe most one-sided loss in coach Mark Turgeon's three seasons at Maryland.

As his team prepares for a much-needed home game Wednesday night after two bad road losses, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon says his players must pull out of their "funk" and focus on the big picture. In the big picture, Turgeon says, the Terps are 2-2 in the conference. They may not feel like a .500 team after losses of 20 points and 24 points, respectively, to Pittsburgh and Florida State. “Guys got to get themselves out of the funk,” Turgeon said Monday on the ACC's media conference call.

Maryland has taken the best shot from a number of teams this season. In the early part of the schedule, it was Oregon State and Boston University at home. Last week, it was Pittsburgh on the road. Then came Sunday night, when Florida State's best shot wasn't a rim-shaking dunk by either of its 7-footers or any one of its athletic wings at the Donald L. Tucker Center. The best shot was a steady stream of 3-pointers by one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's worst 3-point shooting teams that knocked out the Terps by halftime and sent them to an embarrassing 85-61 defeat.

Maryland coaches noticed something unusual when they reviewed the game video from the 63-0 loss to Florida State last Saturday. Before Maryland would snap the ball, Seminoles defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. would occasionally point to the sky as if signaling that he knew a pass was coming. Was Maryland somehow telegraphing its intentions to run or pass? Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley said today that the Terps need to avoid any pre-snap behavior or stances that give the defense clues.

It's been labeled Maryland's biggest football game in at least two years, but do the No. 25 Terps actually have a chance to upset No. 8 Florida State in Tallahassee? Here's a look at what the experts from a number of national media outlets think. (Feel free to leave your comments and score predictions at the bottom.)   ESPN Insider Phil Steele has FSU prevailing, 37-20: "This will be the first time since 2006 that Maryland has been involved in a game featuring two Top-25 teams and I think the stage may be too big at this point," he writes, "especially considering the Seminoles have averaged 52 PPG in their past nine home games while the defense will be playing with a chip on its shoulder after last week's poor performance.

COLLEGE PARK -- One week before its "game of the century" against Notre Dame, Florida State came to Maryland last October with a No. 1 ranking and a "get it over with" attitude. jTC Apathy ran high among the Seminoles, with one exception: It was the biggest game of the year for Danny Kanell.It was Kanell's turn at second-team quarterback when Florida State came to Maryland last year, so he got the start when coach Bobby Bowden decided to rest Charlie Ward."Some of our guys were overlooking Maryland," Kanell said, "but I know I did all I could.

Florida State's media notes project a key battle Saturday between Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs and Seminoles senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner. That should be fun to watch. But I'm looking forward to seeing how Maryland's pressure - the Terps have been sack happy through four games - fares against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. I wrote a story for tomorrow's paper on Winston , who I spoke with briefly today. The striking thing about Winston is how calm and focused he has been to begin his career.

COLLEGE PARK - Two years ago, Maryland traveled to Florida State and endured a 25-point defeat, punctuated by the sight of starting quarterback C.J. Brown leaving the game dazed after a head-high tackle. As the sun began to set over Doak Campbell Stadium - and on Maryland's 2011 season - coach Randy Edsall made a blunt statement about the disparity between the Terps and the Atlantic Coast Conference's elite teams: "We just don't match up with the speed and athleticism of Clemson and Florida State," the coach said.
