Maryland Football: Terps start out fast before embarrassing themselves against Hoosiers on Senior Day

On Senior Day in College Park, the Maryland Terrapins were without their starting quarterback Perry Hills (mono) and had to revert back to the FBS leader in interceptions Caleb Rowe before he was knocked out of the game with a possible concussion. In a further new look offense without wide receiver DeAndre Lane, playmaker Will Likely got his first career start on both sides of the ball. Things looked good for the Terps early but as many on campus have come to learn, this team might be allergic to success. Maryland wasted the career day for senior Brandon Ross by blowing a 18 point lead on their way to a 47-28 loss. The Hoosiers ended the game on a 44-7 run.

Linebacker Jermaine Carter cost his team a three-and-out to start the game by jumping offsides on third down to open the game. Three plays later Nate Sudfeld hit Mitchell Paige on a crossing pattern that beat Anthony Nixon. Despite the red zone opportunity, Maryland shutdown Devine Redding on three straight rushing attempts in goal-to-go situations to hold the Hoosiers to a field goal.

Maryland Football: Terps hope not to fall flat again, host Michigan and Joaquin AT NOON

It would not be surprising if Randy Edsall and his coaching staff burned the tape of there 45-6 thumping by the West Virginia Mountaineers. It was indeed that bad.

Probably the only good thing that came out of all of this is that the second best pocket passing quarterback recruit, according to ESPN, Dwayne Haskins has remained strong in his commitment to the University of Maryland. Although it is accustomed for many true freshmen to sit out their first year of eligibility, Maryland might be in such a dire need of a quarterback to rally around that Haskins could play next year.

Maryland Football: Terps travel to Morgantown in hopes of avenging last year’s loss to WVU

After opening the game down 28-6 last year Maryland fans had little hope of anything more than a route at the hands of West Virginia last year. Clint Trickett was having his way with the defense throwing for 511 yards and four touchdowns including one to Kevin White who finished with 13 receptions for a whopping 216 yards and another two to Mario Alford who had 131 yards on 11 catches. It was no surprise that White was a first round pick in this past draft.

But something magical was in the air as C.J. Brown had willed his team all the way back to tie the game at 37. Brown would finish with 241 yards in the air but more importantly 161 yards on the ground when the rest of the Maryland backfield combined for a miserable two yards on 9 carries. Then it was heartbreak, from the perspective of Maryland fans worse than a blow out, as West Virginia sent Byrd Stadium home unhappy with a walkoff 47-yard field goal from Josh Lambert.
