I'm guessing you've heard: Caleb Rowe went down to a season-ending ACL injury, making him the fourth - and last - Maryland quarterback to be lost for the year. A group of Marylanders reacted probably exactly like you did. Let's round them up.

First, Randy Edsall:

"Pretty much unbelievable, probably just like you guys," coach Randy Edsall said Sunday evening of the Terps' reaction to learning the news. "It's very unusual. I'm not sure if something like this has ever happened with that position."

...

"It could be like five-to-six month recovery because it tore off from the bone," Edsall said. "That’s what was different so maybe that’s why he didn’t experience the pain or have any issues."

Smart man. Anyone who asks Diggs to be put in at the most cursed position of all time, go wash your mouth out with soap.

Now, to the Tweeters! We have the well-wishers:

The jokester, who is technically a former Terp:

The guy who doesn't like jokesters:

And the determined ones:

Love hearing that from Young.

But none are even close to Stefon Diggs' speech. Print this out in full and turn it into a poster, man.

THEY MAY TAKE OUR QUARTERBACKS, BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!

(I do have some qualms about the vaguely anti-fan tone some of this stuff takes, for what it's worth. They have every right to feel aggrieved in this situation. Not sure they have a right to feel aggrieved that fans aren't psyched, which seems to be the case a little bit, especially with the whole "you don't go throw what we go through," as if it's not a game they volunteer for in return for a free education, provided to them by fans going to games. But I think that's just the way I read it the first time through, not really Diggs' point. Just figured I'd mention it.)

Enough of that. Diggs is building his legend. More Braveheart.
