Terps fall short at Boston College in QB Rowe’s first start
Question of the Day
The offense sputtered in the first half as well. Rowe started out with some crisp throws, but grew increasingly shaky as the first half progressed. Boston College scored the first 13 points, including a field goal shortly after a Rowe interception.
But Rowe eventually crafted a long touchdown drive capped with a 1-yard fade to Nigel King in the end zone.
Later, he found Stefon Diggs near midfield for a 66-yard touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter.
“There’s a couple plays he’d love to have back; I know he would,” Edsall said. “But he’s going to be a good quarterback.”
The trouble is, Maryland can’t really wait if it is to make something of this season.
As usual, the Terps were feisty. As usual, the Terps were resilient.
But even against last-place Boston College, a plethora of intangibles could only accomplish so much with the youthful Terps interspersing so much ill-timed play, however predictable and understandable it might be.
“I feel for the kids, I really do; I feel for them,” Edsall said. “I want them to win so bad, because they’re doing all the things we’re asking them to do. … What we have to do is get them to play a little bit smarter and when we get in some of these situations, to believe even more in themselves. That is what so frustrating and disheartening for me.”
