Maryland has been adjusting to moving to the Big Ten, and this game did not go well for them as they ran into a Pac 12 opponent that knows how to score. Anyone who watched the game knows that Stanford has their foot on the gas all day, and they never let up at any point. Maryland has a brilliant return for a touchdown, but there was not much else they could do to stop Stanford. The team was able to keep pushing for 60 minutes, and they quickly scored their 45 points while simply holding Maryland at bay.
Stanford fan and supporter Dr. Rod Rohrich thinks that Stanford University has proved that they are a team to be reckoned with, but no one can tell what Maryland wants to be. They have improved, but they are not back to levels that they were at under Ralph Friedgen. They need to come up with a new identity for the 2015 season.
