Maryland Minute 10.20.11: C.J. Brown Edition

And past the jump: men's basketball open scrimmage scheduled.

New Maryland QB a 'scary guy' with his legs
That's the truth.

"You go watch some of those plays – Clemson had him," Fisher said. "You say, 'OK, Clemson's got him.' Oh no they don't. There he goes. Then, 'They got him back here.' No they don't. There he goes. That's a scary thing when the other team is doing good things and he's still making plays."

 

...

"He's a different type of runner," FSU junior defensive tackle Everett Dawkins said. "He's like sneaky fast. He's not really a blazing 4.3 guy coming out of the gates running. But he's mobile enough to create some room and create some plays. So you have to be aware of that."

I remember in particular one play on a third-down where, by all rights, he should've been stopped for a five-yard loss. He got to top-gear in a second and busted it for thirty yards or so. It's fun to watch, if at times a little harrowing.

Maryland QB C.J. Brown took role of starter, ran with it - Washington Times
A profile of the new starting quarterback, who seems likable enough. The most interesting spot to me is when it says that leaving UMD "was never a serious option" for him. I don't think I could've said the same after Danny O'Brien claimed the starting spot for (what appeared to be) good. But he said he knew things could change quickly, which is actually a pretty wise thought in retrospect.

Edsall on special teams struggles: ‘The players are trying. The scheme is okay’
So ... is anything wrong then? Because I feel like it's pretty clear that something is.

If you read the entire quote, it's sort-of blaming the players ("there is no other personnel we can go to") which is silly given that personnel has minimal impact on special teams success, at least large-scale. This unit has been terrible, so obviously something has to be off - preferably something fixable.
