The Maryland Terrapins hit the road tonight, heading to Clemson to take on the Tigers. The game starts at 7 and can be seen on ESPNU. Our Maryland blog Testudo Times points out that this could be a good opportunity for Maryland coach Mark Turgeon to get something that has eluded them all year long.
Mark Turgeon is still yet to win a true road game in his tenure in College Park. The Terrapins have had some opportunities - the overtime against Miami stands out, and the N.C. State game in Raleigh was a chance as well. But this is by far their most winnable road game yet, and probably their second-best opportunity of the season (Georgia Tech will likely be the best shot).
Mark Turgeon has done a lot of things right in his first season in College Park, but if he goes the whole year without winning a true road game, that could be a problem. This is a very good opportunity to get that win. Not a must win by any means, but it would be a good one to get.
