Latest C.J. Brown Items
Although Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown will miss the 2012 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, there is some hope he will have a year of eligibility restored because he's missed nearly two entire years due to injury.
One awkward cut during a mid-August practice ended Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown's junior year before it started — and quite possibly altered the trajectory of the Terrapins' season as well.
Every coach deserves a second chance, and this season was Randy Edsall's. He did not, to put it mildly, score a touchdown in his first year at Maryland. Indeed, he aggravated many inside and especially outside the football building with a swagger and certitude that simply didn't jibe with his 74-70 record at Connecticut.
Nick Klemm didn't spend much of the past three years in the public eye. The offensive lineman was part of Maryland's field goal unit for half of last season, and he occasionally spelled starting tackles R.J. Dill and Max Garcia.
As he's worked his way back from a knee injury last year, Maryland linebacker Kenny Tate is already reminding teammates of the guy who was one of the ACC's top defensive players in 2010.
Justus Pickett received immediate on-field experience last fall at Maryland.

A dozen players with eligibility remaining left Maryland's football program since the end of a miserable 2-10 season in coach Randy Edsall's debut.
College athletics is sashaying toward a tipping point. I say "sashaying" because it suggests a certain obliviousness, a lack of self-awareness, and the folks in college sports have always scored high in those particular categories. High enough to qualify for an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.
