Topic - C.J. Brown
A civil trial over the fatal Albuquerque police shooting of a 27-year-old man with schizophrenia began Monday in a case that drew added scrutiny to the department's high number of officer-involved shootings.
As a sixth-year senior, C.J. Brown has seen a lot of things. Now he's under center and prepared to be "the old guy" again for Maryland.
Rakeem Cato threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns, and Marshall used two fourth-quarter scores to rally past Maryland 31-20 Friday in the Military Bowl.
Because of the calculations about the probability of fan bases traveling— the closer the bowl, the more likely fans are to travel — being able to nab Maryland was key in the eyes of bowl officials, especially considering the program's impending move to the Big Ten.
C.J. Brown ran for three touchdowns and threw for two more, and Maryland beat North Carolina State 41-21 on Saturday in its final Atlantic Coast Conference game.
There was a time when things just weren't the same for quarterback C.J. Brown because of injury. Those days are behind him and Maryland is bowl eligible.
Now that Maryland has finally gotten its coveted sixth win, the Terrapins intend to use the final two weeks of the regular season to make a positive impression on bowl committees around the country.
The Terrapins' 27-24 victory over Virginia Tech was a season-salvaging event. Maryland had seen its 21-7 lead erased and overcame a pass interference call in overtime that led to a Hokies field goal when it appeared Virginia Tech would be held scoreless.
The loss damaged Virginia Tech's chance of playing for the ACC championship. The Hokies started the game knowing if they beat Maryland and then Virginia next week, and if Duke lost one of its three remaining games, they would win the Coastal Division and a spot in the championship game.
As they prepare to face Virginia Tech on Saturday, the Terrapins have dropped three in a row and four of five. They've been stuck on five victories for a month and still need a sixth to become bowl-eligible.
Two interceptions, two lost fumbles, several dropped passes and shoddy tackling all contributed to Maryland's third straight loss and fourth in five games.
"Now is a good time to get that sixth win," defensive end Zeke Riser said Tuesday. "We started 4-0, and it was like, we're going to get to six really quickly. It hasn't worked out that way."
The Terrapins were 5-1 this year before their top two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, each broke a leg last week in a 34-10 loss at Wake Forest. Diggs and Long are among nine players out for the season, six on defense.
Maryland (5-1) proved it can still accomplish many of the goals it had set prior to the season. Meanwhile, Virginia (2-4) faces a scramble for bowl eligibility with only one game remaining in which it figures to be the favorite.
Maryland (4-1, 0-1) never got anything going and was lost after quarterback C.J. Brown left the game with an injury in the second quarter. The No. 2 total offense in the ACC was held to 234 yards.
"I didn't know of his mental illness," Brown said. "If we would have known, things may have been different."
Brown said in a deposition he drew his service pistol and fired three shots just inches from Torres' back.
