A closer look
Monday: Welcome to Running Backs Week
A quick prospectus of the position, which is one of the strongest on the team.
Tuesday: Who’s the best RB in Maryland history?
LaMont Jordan ran away with this honor, garnering over 673 of the 1,028 votes cast (65 percent).
Wednesday: Maryland had its big runs in 2016, but got stuffed plenty of times
I made up a stat called “extreme carries,” which covers a running back’s longest and shortest carries, and looked at how the Terps took advantage in this realm.
Thursday: Maryland has run well for years, but now has depth in the backfield
The Terps have recruited three backs in back-to-back cycles, allowing them to absorb, say ... a transfer.
Friday: The best running backs on Maryland’s 2017 schedule
