"I regret to inform the Terrapin faithful that my family and I have decided it would be best for me to move on with both my academic and athletic endeavors," Dill said in an e-mail. "Therefore I have requested and been granted a release from the Maryland football program. I leave here with great memories of the university and Terp Nation." [...]
"I wish the Maryland football program nothing but the best," Dill said. "Good luck to everyone involved with the program, from my brothers on the team to Coach Edsall, [offensive line coach Tom] Brattan and the coaching staff. I will always bleed red, white, black and gold and most of all, I will always be a Terp."
Another classy exit. Best of luck wherever you end up, R.J.
You'd think this hurts Maryland fairly significantly: they lose a senior lineman who's started for a solid two-and-a-half years, and they have no one with experience to plug into his place. His backup last year, Jake Wheeler, will be a redshirt sophomore next year with no starting experience. It also robs Maryland of some much-needed depth along the offensive line. Guys like Mike Madaras and Nick Brigham will likely be robbed of any chance to redshirt as a result.
I'm sticking with my over/under of 5.5, though most people would probably place it at 9.5 or so. We'll keep an eye out.
