FSU gets its TV time.
Florida State will play at Maryland at Noon on ESPNU, just as it wanted. The kids can get back into Tally by a decent hour and maintain a normal sleep schedule in preparation for Florida the following week.
Maryland notes: if you're not aware, this is a bad football team. Specifically, its offense. The Terrapins are on their fifth quarterback of the season. He's a linebacker. I am not joking. Defensively, this is a cover 4 team that brings a lot of zone blitzes. And they're a good defense. How good? Probably the second or third best Florida State has seen.
Weather: Currently, Weather Underground projects a high of 54 and a low of 39 for the game, with 0% chance of precipitation. There's a good chance this game is played at a temp higher than the mid-40s, which is very good for a bunch of Florida kids.
Who should I follow on twitter? Glad you asked. Patrick Stevens at @D1scourse and @TestudoTimes
