Is this the start of the Danny O'Brien era at Maryland?

Danny O'Brien looked good in his first career start. Should he continue to start?

This is an amusing question Prisbell. Rarely do you ever see 90%+ of Terps fans agreeing on ANYTHING.

Nothing against Robinson, but with Franklin's play calling, and offense, he'll never use Jamarr's full athletic abilty.. Might as well get O'Brien going.. That way we finally have a QB, that we'll have for the 3 1/2 years..
By the way, with the crowd that was there yesterday, felt like the old Duffner days..

Without a doubt, OB is the future of Terp football. Robinson is a solid backup, but OB's ability to negate Franklin's weak play calling with timely audibles can't be emphasized enough

Far different ballgame yesterday if OB isn't at the helm.

Terp alums and fans: Get your a$$es out to Byrd. The stadium looks great and it's by far the best deal in town.

The only way we're going to get better at sustaining drives is by having a quarterback who will be out there all of the time and not rotating in and out and who the coaches and the team believes in. When Jamar is on the field, it looks and feels like a different team. You can see they are inspired and have more confidence with their play calls when O'Brien is in the game.

Not to say Reid handled things the right way in Philly with Vick and Kolb but Fridge needs to look at that and realize that with O'Brien on the field, it gives them the best chance to win the game and still get set for the next 3.5 years.

I watched the game on TV and the crowd was pitiful. The same needs to be said to the students. Their tickets are for free and what else are you going to be doing on a Saturday afternoon? I'm unable to make many games this year because my wife is pregnant and just about on bed rest so I am giving my tickets to people who I know will go in my place and represent Maryland.

Well, if he's going to win for us, I suppose he should start. This is what Maryland has been lacking for several years: a freshman that has the talent to start immediately, who will grow with the team around him.

Jamar Should be the starter. He adds another level to the offense that defenses will have to prepare for. and he also has a cannon. i dont think we wanna see obrien playing against the likes of VTech and Miami just yet.

Not sure why people are acting surprised about a noon game being half empty at Byrd. This is ALWAYS the case on noon games and has been even when Maryland was a great team. Half the students that normally go don't go to noon games unless it's a big ACC opponent.

Next week vs Duke at 6 p.m there will be over 40,000 people there, relax.
