Danny O’Brien, Maryland’s top QB last year, transferred to Wisconsin. His backup last year, CJ Brown, was set to ascend to the starter’s job this Fall … until he tore an ACL Tuesday and was lost for the season. Of course, the injury happened on a non-contact drill.
This leaves Maryland with two freshman quarterbacks, neither of whom has taken a snap at the college level. If you thought Randy Edsall caught a beating last year – all of it deserved – 2012 should be a bloodbath, even though the ACC is a joke. I imagine the spread for the West Virginia game on Sept. 22 in Morgantown will be in the low 40s.
Maybe the Terps will trot out a fresh batch of snazzy Under Armor jerseys to mask the stench of another awful season in College Park.
Somewhere, Ralph Freidgen is cackling and rolling a blunt.
