Latest Mike Locksley Items
When the Terrapins hit the field at Byrd Stadium on Saturday, they will do so with sixth-year senior C.J. Brown back under center. It is a welcome turn of events for a team that foundered to a 4-8 record, thanks in no small part to ACL injuries that felled Brown and his backups, Perry Hillis, Devin Burns and Caleb Rowe.
That Maryland left Saturday's 33-13 loss to Georgia Tech with uncertainty about its offense hardly is unexpected. Its unusually injury-ravaged quarterback corps offers an obvious explanation.
Shawn Petty, the latest in Maryland's unexpectedly long line of quarterbacks, is not overly emotional. He also wasn't expected to play quarterback again after being recruited as a linebacker out of Greenbelt's Eleanor Roosevelt High School.
C.J. Brown, Maryland's presumptive starting quarterback and one of its team captains, already had his chance to play in 2012 extinguished in the preseason.
Name a way to inject some life into its rushing attack, and Maryland probably tried it in the last month.

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.
