Terps Fall Apart; Lose 56-45

10/15/2011 8:51:53 PM CJ Brown almost did it by himself.  Outside of Justus Pickett and Davin Meggett he had no help.  Brown set  a school records for rushing yards by a QB and he put 45 points up against the #24 ranked defense in the nation.

Yet it was not enough.  Not even close.  That's because Maryland's receivers are the worst I've ever seen.  They can't catch anything.  Tyler dropped a sure TD pass (on Brown's only good deep ball of the night) and the rest of corp dropped at least 4 other balls maybe more.

Shockingly, the awful pass catching wasn't even Maryland's worst performance of the night.  What can you say about the defense and special teams?  Bad doesn't even come close to describing it.  The Terps can't stop anyone.  The tackling is terrible and they don't put any pressure on the quarterback.

For the second game in a row, Maryland had a ranked team on its heels and came up short.  On one hand; I give credit to Edsall for having the guts to put in CJ Brown; but the result was still the same and that is all that matters.

It is apparent now that the real tragedy in all of this is that the receiving corps is so bad that Danny O'Brien never really had a chance to be successful.

In the end, the Terps had a 38-17 lead and lost.  That's inexcusable.  Edsall has not won over fans or alumni with his approach and games like this will only cement the anger of the fan base.

The season is mostly lost at this point so, uh...

How bout that Alex Len, huh?
