Almost two months ago, Maryland coach Randy Edsall faced the first true low tide of his tenure when Temple demolished the Terrapins 38-7 at Byrd Stadium.
Maryland coach Randy Edsall inherited a 9-4 team coming off its first top-25 finish in seven years. His first season will end just two days after Thanksgiving — potentially with a 10-loss season.
The sight of a teammate grappling with a severe injury was difficult enough Saturday for the Maryland football team.
So much changed during the Maryland football program's extreme makeover in the past 10 months. A head coach was fired, another hired and most of the staff turned over. Schemes were overhauled. There was an exodus of players for a variety of reasons.
Maryland lost both a game and one of its best offensive linemen in its first road trip of the season.

"It's just kind of who I am," said Gonnella, who wore a brace on his left knee and spoke with reporters as crutches draped the seat next to him. "I'm not going to waste time crying, you know? It's broken. It's not going to fix itself tomorrow."
