Terrapins Insider: September 19, 2010 - September 25, 2010

A long day for Maryland's defense

After four games, Don Brown, Maryland’s defensive coordinator, is concerned about he “wear and tear” his defense has experienced in recent weeks. The unit was on the field for 82 plays against Navy, 85 plays against West Virginia and a...

O'Brien to start; WR Tony Logan warming up

No official word from the Maryland press box, but all signs point to Danny O'Brien making his first career start. Interesting that WR Tony Logan has also taken pre-game snaps. Jamarr Robinson's shoulder must have gotten worse, but no word...

Maryland's O'Brien may start FIU game.

Early word from the field at Byrd Stadium: Don't be surprised if Danny O'Brien starts this game despite a nagging high ankle sprain. Could be interesting. WR Tony Logan, a former high school QB, has even been warming up....

Your FIU-Maryland game predictions

Let me first say that my West Virginia game prediction (28-17) was only three points off the actual score (31-17). Now, on to the prediction for Saturday's Maryland-Florida International game. I was tempted a little bit to pick the Panthers,...

Maryland and Texas, a tale of two football programs

The year 2017 is a long way away, but the years pass quickly and programs change quickly. Seven years ago, Maryland was a 10-win program, Texas achieved its third straight season of at least 10 victories and was two years...

Should NCAA football teams with losing records play in bowl games?

I don’t root for teams. I root for Marriott points, working computers, relaxed deadlines and NCAA tournament sites in New Orleans or Tempe. I also root every year for something else: More bowl berths than eligible teams. I root for...

Friedgen: Some players were 'star-struck, nervous' against West Virginia

There are days when Ralph Friedgen is in a good mood. There are days when he is not in a good mood. And it’s easy to tell the difference. On Wednesday night, Friedgen was not in a good mood because...

Moten's play could have changed Maryland-West Virginia outcome?

The single play I wanted to ask defensive coordinator Don Brown about was a critical one. There was 4:03 left in the third quarter Saturday in Morgantown, W.Va., and Maryland had just crept back into the game after quarterback Jamarr...

Brown: Defense lacked execution, communication early

Don Brown, Maryland’s defensive coordinator, is nothing if not blunt. It’s refreshing. He will assume responsibility for mistakes, credit players who deserve it and give you a no-nonsense assessment of an opponent. My favorite quote from a near 20-minute chat...

Brattan: Dill not 'totally alien' to playing left tackle

Tom Brattan, Maryland’s 10th-year offensive line coach, compared his task this week to a wine connoisseur who fetches an aerator to expose wine to air quicker, essentially coaxing more flavors out of the liquid. Instead of waiting for the wine...

Right tackle DeSouza ready for first start of career

Maryland’s team this season attracts as much national attention as the ACC – yeah, not much. Whatever. I’m finding this team more fascinating by the day. You have coaches coaching for their livelihood this season as injuries mount and tougher...

Some expecting Maryland to blow out Florida International?

Driving down Route 29 Tuesday morning on my way to Maryland’s media access, I heard a promo on ESPN980 for Saturday’s Maryland-Florida International game. I’ve heard these before for Redskins game, and there usually is a touch of commentary mixed...

Injuries at LT, QB significant setbacks for Maryland

Not a positive day in College Park if you are a Maryland fan. Both of Maryland’s experienced quarterbacks, starter Jamarr Robinson and backup Danny O’Brien, are banged up. Both could play, but coaches would rather not play O’Brien, who has...

Do you blame the Maryland coaches for the West Virginia loss?

There has been a knee-jerk reaction by some fans to blame the Maryland coach on the hot seat for the 31-17 loss at West Virginia. I’m not saying coaches are immune from some blame, and even Coach Ralph Friedgen accepted...
