Maryland quarterback O'Brien earns ACC rookie of the week honors

Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien earned ACC rookie of the week honors for his performance in the 42-28 victory over FIU. In his first career start, O'Brien completed 18 of 27 passes for 250 yards with two touchdown passes and no interceptions. He was the first freshman quarterback to start at Maryland since Latrez Harrison on Nov. 20, 1999, and just the fifth in school history. O'Brien, who threw touchdown passes of nine and 68 yards, led the Terrapins on five scoring drives and had an efficiency rating of 168.89, the seventh-highest mark by a freshman in division I-A this season.

Congratulations Danny! Be careful becasue that 400lb oaf will be looking for any excuse to go back to Robinson...he may even ask the team to vote for QB like he did with Turner...

TerpfanMA, you really are an idiot. And aside from that, you haven't watched a MD game in at least 2 years.

Friedgen before: http://misterirrelevant.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/ralph-friedgen-is-fit.jpg or http://swasted.com/wp-content/gallery/fat-coaches/fat-ralph-friedgen.jpg

Friedgen now: http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2009/1006/ncf_i_friedgen_200.jpg or http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2010/0831/ncf_u_friedgen_200.jpg

Are you somehow not aware that Fridge lost over 100 lbs? Stop commenting already.

Probably the most idiotic comments I have read in a while.

First off, they really shouldn't call a freshman a "rookie." Second, go Danny!!!!! Congrats!

Didn't Calvin McCall start 8 or 9 games his freshman year which was in the 2000s?

McCall won the ACC rookie of the year award when he started as a freshman, which gave the sportswriters something to write about when he joined the BB team and quit FB.

Looking at the numbers, DOB sounds better than he looked when watching the game. He is nursing a high-ankle sprain and we're lucky it did not flare up in the game. So he looked immobile, but that might be more of the injury than his ability. Moreover, when comparing him to Robinson who runs like a gazelle, anyone would look relatively immobile.

It could just be that...DOB, recruited by Franklin and committing b/c of the coach in waiting concept could just save both RF and JF's jobs. I suspect if both are healthy we'll play both QBs vs. Duke; either way, I think this is a game MD wins easily. Hope to see a second half of power running to eat up clock.

And to the poor Terp fan who has to live in the wretched state of MA, that's a "300lb oaf."
