Agree with all of this. Would only add:

- Slobs seasoned/conditioned (more so that last year)

- J.T. (if starter) not green (like last year); don't care about WR status -- he ran a few times if memory serves

- Cardale (if starter) doesn't give a...

- Zeke found ways time and time again when he was keyed on due to "3rd string QB" to the tune of 200+ yards in 3 straight games

- D: approaching unlock of Silver Bullets status

Not saying it's in the bag and fully appreciate the granularity of match-ups. Also, not trying to sound like the guy arguing on performance...

Still -- I think scheme/surprise lasts a few series, but then experience and depth across the board takes hold.

Old (scored a similar ringer shirt on eBay):

New (it takes people here in D.C. a few seconds):

Jesse Palmer dominates the hair product and strangely-tight-sport-coat categories, but I'm going with David Pollack for failure to offer any opinion/analysis on any situation that cannot somehow be related to SEC defense (which apparently differs from defense in any other football conference/context).

Live in D.C.-metro Maryland and wife is a Terps alum. After making sure my son's first game was in Ohio Stadium (Rutgers), we are going to Maryland-Richmond on Labor Day weekend.

I'll spare everyone what I paid for tickets, but can say that it was a one-bill purchase... And Ben Franklin wasn't even close, let alone U.S. Grant.

Yet another skill player scored while I overthought this... 

Going with TG -- combo of special teams (crunching hit and may be a return TD) and trick play (reverse or reverse-pass for TD).

And here's the early frontrunner for bootleg T-shirt of the year...
