The Maryland Terrapins just lost the ninth game of the season to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons with a final score of 31-10. They are now 2-9.
In a season that has been incredibly frustrating for Maryland football fans, today might be one of the more frustrating days. Unlike other games when they were blown out from start to finish, of which there were quite a few, this one is almost worse because for a while it felt like the Terps had a legitimate shot at winning. They were tied at halftime but Wake Forest just pulled away in the second half and ended up losing pretty handily.
The big story line today has to be missed opportunities. On my count the Terps left 27 points on the board, and that isn't even a stretch. There was the Davin meggett touchdown that as called back after an offensive penalty, the fruitless drive that started at about Wake Forest's 15-yard-line, the dropped touchdown by Matt Furstenburg at the end of the game and the two relatively short field goals missed by Nick Ferrara.
There were a few players that played well enough to win this game, particularly C.J. Brown who did not make the big mistake and consistently put the Terps in a position to succeed. But they just didn't have enough pure difference makers to make the plays when they actually counted.
