I'm starting to come around to the idea that this team may have overachieved but that in recent weeks they have regressed to the mean. You could easily give them credit for many of the close losses they have endured this season and they certainly would have a much better record but I think bad teams usually lose close games. Maryland may not be a "bad" team this season but they are certainly very flawed. The anemic offense keeps Maryland from blowing out any team, the largest margin of victory in the ACC was 11 points to N.C. State, and the average margin of victory this season was a mere 6.1 points. The average margin of defeat in ACC games this year was 13.2 points and even throwing out the 41 point loss to Duke as an anomaly the margin is still 9.75 points. Maryland had five single digit losses in the conference but also had five single digit wins so in essence I think this team ended with the record they deserved.
