"Randy Edsall could have been angry when Shawn Petty jogged over to the sideline after throwing a fourth-quarter interception Saturday. He could have yelled at his quarterback, made sure he knew what he was doing wrong and told him not to make the same mistake again."

Good to know Edsall is trying to help Petty as much as possible. Who knows, maybe we could use him in some trick plays next season?

Where does 2012 rank among Maryland's most injury-prone seasons of late? - Washington Times

No. 5 Maryland Women's basketball team rolled in their only exhibition, 84-46.

Take a look at this women's team because I think they're what the men's team will be by 2014. It's going to be awesome.
