Temple trampling is on Maryland’s mind
Question of the Day
“I felt terrible after that game,” Francis said. “I didn’t go out after that game. I didn’t leave my room. I felt embarrassed. I embarrassed myself, I embarrassed my team. I felt like we embarrassed our school and the state of Maryland.”
A year later, the Terps’ many mistakes and listless play isn’t any easier to handle.
“I looked at it [Monday],” Edsall said. “I wasn’t put in a very good mood after watching it.”
Thoughts of that game have festered for some time. This year’s Terps undoubtedly are in a better frame of mind if not particularly deep (Maryland used only 44 players in its opener) or experienced (25 freshmen and sophomores saw time against William & Mary).
Regardless, they finally receive an opportunity to make a better showing against the Owls.
“That game’s been eating at me for a year now,” Francis said. “It’s not one of my fonder memories of playing here at Maryland. I can’t wait to try to redeem ourselves this Saturday.”
Notes: Edsall said Thursday defensive linemen Keith Bowers (knee) and Isaiah Ross (hamstring) are expected to return this week, while guard Josh Cary (knee) is questionable. All three missed the opener.
Edsall also said he is “very optimistic” safety Matt Robinson (shoulder) and cornerback Isaac Goins (illness) will be ready for the Sept. 15 date against Connecticut. It’s also possible tailback Brandon Ross (hamstring) returns then. Edsall said it was less likely linebacker Kenny Tate (knee) would play next week.
