There’s been all kinds of hints about another Maryland game in Baltimore lately. This time it comes from the Baltimore Sun. Unlike the mention in the Examiner last week, it’s clear here that the game is far from a done deal. Our 2010 schedule as it stands right now is:
Sept. 11 . . .Rutgers
Sept. 25 . . .at Wake Forest
Oct. 2 . . . .at Air Force
Oct. 16 . . . SMU
Oct. 23 . . . Notre Dame (Baltimore)
Nov. 6 . . . .at East Carolina
Nov. 13 . . . Delaware
Nov. 20 . . . at Houston
Dec. 4 . . . .Army (Philadelphia)
With Rutgers and Wake Forest already on the schedule, plus resurgent programs in Houston, East Carolina, and maybe even SMU, 2010 might not be the best year for this game to happen– especially considering that we’re already scheduled to play another game in Baltimore that year. But if it means getting another million dollar check, it almost has to happen eventually.
UPDATE: OK, WTF Baltimore Sun? Talk about a complete re-write of an article after I posted it. Anyway, now that the article is updated with Chet’s response, I guess it doesn’t have to happen eventually. Apparently he’s upset at last year’s missed opportunity. There’s clearly more to this story.
