#Terps QB CJ Brown is done for season with knee injury. Stay tuned.
Maryland announces C.J. Brown suffered a season-ending knee injury (ACL) in a noncontact drill last night.— Patrick Stevens (@D1scourse) August 15, 2012
Maryland's called a press conference at 2:15 and it'll be expanded upon there.
You can think C.J. was a pretty crappy QB, and maybe he was. I know I disagree with that, but hey, to each their own. But you can't say he wasn't a significantly better option than the unproven, relatively unknown and un-touted(?) freshmen on offer. Borderline disastrous.
I guess Perry Hills will be the starter for the moment, but it's about to be a full-on battle with he and Caleb Rowe. The good news, I guess, is that it doesn't change the paradigm for Maryland too much: still based on the running game, but now even more pulled in with the passing game.
If the football gods wanted Maryland to be successful, at least Ricardo Young would be eligible. Sadly, they don't, and he's not. So it's true freshmen and only true freshmen on offer.
