Terps' Offense: Revamped or Rejuvinated?

Maryland QB, Perry Hills, is out for the season, and it looks like Devin Burns is the new starter. That raises a few questions.

Based on two quarters of play, the Terps' offense was much more efficient with Burns under center (no offense intended to Hills). Was that attributable more to the lack of preparation on the part of NC State's defense, or because Burns is better at the zone-read option? The other factor that may have played a role is the offense pulled together when it's leader went down. If that's the case, are we in for a disappointment at BC?

We'll find out Saturday, in a game most expected us to win even before the season started. Given that, how important is it for the offense to have a game to work out any kinks - or just get accustomed to a new signal caller - before entering the meat of the schedule starting a week from Saturday against Georgia Tech?

Finally, speculation is that true freshman Caleb Rowe will run the two-minute drill if/when the situation arises (and maybe see a few snaps at other times during the game). Does having to prepare for two different styles of play make things considerably more difficult for opposing defenses?
