Happy Birthday, Markus and Tyler!

The BCs can't remember the actual calendar date when the Thomas-Frese twins were born. (Okay, we know it was in February.) But we do remember one thing: it was the day that the Terps beat the Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor 3 seasons ago. Unforgettable. So, in our minds, the twins' births and Maryland's annual road match-up against Duke are (and probably always will be) inextricably linked.

Which means that today, the day that the Terps travel to Cameron, is the 2011 anniversary of that special day. So Happy Birthday, boys! (Hope there's some cake and ice cream on your menu tonight.)

Anytime Maryland and Duke meet is a big day and a big game. But this year, today also marks the beginning of the ACC season for both teams. And if that's not enough reason to get excited about tonight's game, how 'bout the fact that Duke is currently undefeated and ranked #3 in the nation?

So yeah, it should be one heck of a battle. Maryland v. Duke; ACC opener; two ranked teams going head to head in a game that actually means something. It doesn't get much better than that!

. . . . Actually, it does. Tonight's 7 PM game will be televised on RSN (Comcast SportsNet in the DMV). So while many loyal Maryland fans are hitting the road this morning on their way to Durham, those of us who aren't (we have to work, darn it) will still be able to see the game. Yay!

Go Terps . . . Beat the Devils.

50-50, under 8 minutes to go. Rodgers and Barrett are playing great.
