Maryland quarterback Caleb Rowe's concussion suffered against Indiana occurred before Rowe re-entered the game, interim head coach Mike Locksley said in his Sunday teleconference. Rowe's head contacted the turf again on his first snap back in the game after the play on which Locksley said he was concussed. Locksley said Rowe told medical staff of a headache at halftime before being subsequently held out for the rest of the game.
Its pretty terrible.

Diamond Stone is making an impact off the bench
Melo Trimble is finding all of Maryland's bigs against Rider, finishing the first half with 4 assists.
Trimble has been getting to the rim so well this season.
A change in Maryland's starting lineup for Friday's non-conference game against Rider. Michal Cekovsky replaces Diamond Stone at center. Cekovsky has had two strong games to open the season, while Stone played well in the opener against Mount St. Mary's but struggled against Georgetown. It's Cekovsky's second career start .
Herman would've been an out-of-the-park hire for Maryland, but he's pretty safely off the board now – or, if he isn't, he certainly is for Maryland. There are a ton of quality candidates out there, but Herman might've been the best of them all. Good for Houston for taking a major step toward keeping him in town for a while.
The Terps are still hanging out just behind Kentucky and North Carolina. But what's notable here is what writer Luke Winn has to say about Melo Trimble's 18-free throw showing against Georgetown: ""Trimble was a foul-drawing machine even before the NCAA made its freedom-of-movement rule changes this off-season. As a freshman he generated double-digit free-throw attempts in nine different games—but he took it to a new level on Tuesday against Georgetown, creating a career-high 18 FTAs ... It was the best foul-drawing performance I could recall by a guard in a big game ..."
