Pete DeSouza 'getting around pretty good,' Ralph Friedgen says

By Eric Prisbell

Pete DeSouza, the redshirt freshman offensive lineman who broke both legs in an Oct. 21 on-campus motor scooter accident, has been seen at the Gossett Team House using a walker and is very determined to get back on the field as quickly as possible, Coach Ralph Friedgen said.

Maryland players had visited DeSouza at a local hospital during the past few weeks, but DeSouza met the entire team at the team house before the Terrapins left campus for their Nov. 13 game at Virginia.

"Everybody was really excited to see him," Friedgen said.

DeSouza is finishing two classes and is "getting around pretty good" on campus, Friedgen said.

DeSouza has told Friedgen that he hopes to be ready to compete in spring practice. Friedgen thinks that recovery timeline might be a tad too optimistic, but "that's the type of kid he is," Friedgen said.

Can't wait for the Post to catch up. Here is my post-FSU-game rant. Twice we had the opportunity for the breakthrough game. Twice we did not capitalize. Wrangling over the bowl games is irrelevant tonight. We won't be in the BCS. I have a f-ing right to be disappointed and I am.

For Starters, I don't mind the "Black Out" concept, but it does not work and the names of the players should be on the jerseys. I'm sure someone noted the irony of a team wearing "honor", "Integrity" and "commitment" got BEAT by a MFer wearing "Moody." Do "Scott" "Logan" or "Smith' offend anybody? WTF? WHO IS THE IDIOT WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS COOL AND HOW MANY IDIOTS BOUGHT OFF ON THAT CRAP?

Second thing that p*ssed me off was that NOW WE BURN Garcia's redshirt. That shoulda been burnt at the beginning of the season. We've been thin at o-line all year and an injury from playing him. So NOW WE play him cold in the biggest game in 2 years when we coulda had a deeper o-line all year. IT GETTING burnt was inevitable. We really were that thin at o-line.

I am disappointed about the game, but would rather lose with O'Brien than otherwise. Do not regret the Fridge re-signing (unless the stupidity on the uniforms was HIS idea...he better say it was a surprise on him or might change my mind on this specific point); coaching did not lose the game. The specifics of the loss aren't even worth rehashing - not that it was closer than the final score indicates, we were in until the end, we were robbed on interception that wasn't - all irrelevant. We lost. It sucks. It hurts. And the feeling is too f-ing familiar.

Yeah, I know we will be back (next year or soon thereafter) in this position again - meaningful game with the division on the line in the next couple of years. I hope we don't lose that next one too.

Woulda complained about Garcia's redshirt and the moronic names on the uniforms regardless. And it if was pointing to a higher purpose it failed. Otherwise I thought the uniforms looked fine.

Regards -
