Seems like just yesterday Randy Edsall, Maryland's imperious football coach, was imposing his will on Danny O'Brien and two other players to keep them from transferring to Vanderbilt, where former Terps assistant James Franklin has been gaining traction.
Name a way to inject some life into its rushing attack, and Maryland probably tried it in the last month.
There's quite a drama playing out in Maryland's athletic department, where it's the best of times and worst of times in the Terrapins' "Tale of Two Programs."
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.
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.
Danny O'Brien once looked like he would shatter many of the career passing records at Maryland. After playing his sophomore season under coach Randy Edsall, O'Brien is following a well-worn path out of College Park.
Maryland received a peek at Max Garcia's talents under emergency conditions late in the 2010 season.
Maryland couldn't make it out of April before losing a projected starter for part of next season.
"I'll just take those three years and maximize those three years," Garcia said. "I would love to have another year back, but that's just not going to happen now."
"All of those guys are in the league now," Garcia said. "I don't know. Maybe that's a sign."
