    Terps notes: flash cards and the hurry-up offense
    **Headiing into the contest at Georgia Tech, Maryland's hurry-up offense has held the ball for an average of 24:40 per game -- last in the ACC by far. So might the Terps go slower against Georgia Tech to try to keep the ball away from a Yellow Jackets...

    For some Terps, playing for Edsall has been 'a rough transition'
