Terrapins Insider: August 24, 2008 - August 30, 2008

The Thumb

So the most talked about right thumb in College Park tonight belongs to Jordan Steffy. And only Jordan knows whether his thumb hurts or not. Why didn’t three prominent offensive players, Edwin Williams, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Da’Rel Scott, know...

As you know, Jordan Steffy was replaced early in the fourth quarter by Chris Turner. Ralph said after the game that Steffy had a thumb injury, but he did not know when or how Steffy got injured. I asked three...

An Offensive First Half?

Wow. A 7-0 lead against a Delaware team that can barely throw the ball vertically down the field. Sure, Da’Rel Scott is running well (10 carries for 74 yards) and Darrius Heyward-Bey has four catches for 70 yards and Davin...

It is an 87-degree afternoon here at Byrd Stadium. Maryland back Da’Rel Scott had a nice 40-yard run, but the Terps missed two field goals and there is not much to cheer at this point. I even heard a smattering...
