MIRROR IMAGE OF NORTHWESTERN?
Maryland's victory over Temple gave Ron Vanderlinden the first victory of his head coaching career. Vanderlinden, who has been associated with incredible turnarounds at both Colorado and Northwestern maybe following a similar pattern from his first season at Northwestern. After falling in their first three games of the Barnett-Vanderlinden era in 1992, the Wildcats defeated Purdue in game four for their first victory. The Terps victory in their fourth game marked a similar story line.
NO FIELD GOAL ATTEMPTS
Maryland's defense held Temple to no field goal attempts. It marked the second time this season (also against Ohio) that the Terpsi defense had held their opponent without a field goal attempt.
TERPS FORCE SEVEN TURNOVERS AGAINST TEMPLE
Maryland forced a season high seven turnovers against Temple. The Terps were credited with four interceptions and three fumble recoveries.
QUOTING RON VANDERLINDEN FOLLOWING HIS FIRST CAREER VICTORY
"Temple is a very good football team and we knew that we would have our hands full. I told our team that this game would go down to the wire.
What we had to do was believe and have faith in each other, hang together and find a way to win it and not look up for 60 minutes. I believe we did that.
I was really proud of the fact that weive got some guys stepping up and making plays. I have always believed that players make plays.
I think Lewis Sanders has demonstrated that heis a player and he continues to make plays. Also, Eric Barton and Eric Ogbogu are very capable of making plays.
I am really proud of both of our cornerbacks - and particularly Troy Davidson at the end of the game. He made a big time play near the end of the game. I have been impressed with the way those two players (Davidson and Washington) have taken their share of lumps and yet continue to get better and work and not get their heads down.
LaMont Jordan has a gear that he can go to. Itis a good gear and I like that gear. He has shown toughness, speed and the ability to make plays.
I am also really proud of the way that Brian Underwood has played. I thought he ran well. I thought that he ran hard and was difficult to tackle.
When Temple scored early in the second half and our offense answered with a touchdown -- I thought that was an impressive drive and showed maturity by our offense. i
