Anyway, scroll through the timeline to relive the last six years. Or don’t. It’s your choice.

“You see them every day, you look them in the eye. They’re ready to go, they’re ready to attack it. The team is ready to respond, too. It’s part of it. It’s part of the game, unfortunately. When it happens at the same position, that makes things a little tougher. But it’s part of life and it’s a great way to learn.”

His completion percentage is the third-highest in the conference behind Purdue’s David Blough and Wisconsin’s Alex Hornibrook. Considering how inefficient he was against Maryland last season, it looks like Rhoda has made huge strides.In three games this season, Hill was 18-of-21 passing for 230 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions to go along with one rushing touchdown.Saquon Barkley has 98 all-purpose yards 14 seconds into today’s game. https://t.co/tYCQAHFkfX“What are we going to do? We’re going to go buckle up and go fight and do whatever we got to do and pick each other up. Here we are. It’s the hand we’ve been dealt,” said Durkin. “It’s no one’s fault. Those guys  obviously were competing like crazy and they got hurt on the field. It’s part of the game. It’s part of what happens.”Quarterback Max Bortenschlager will start Saturday at Minnesota. He struggled against the Knights on Saturday, throwing two interceptions and taking five sacks.

Maryland turns to 3rd starting QB after Hill's knee injury

When Maryland’s freshman class develops in two years, four-star offensive linemen Marcus Minor and Jordan McNair, as well as two four-star linemen in the 2018 class, will protect Hill. Four-star running back Anthony McFarland and a bevy of three-star wide receivers will serve as Hill’s weapons.Maryland’s got two ACL tears through three games. That’s on top of onetime starter Caleb Henderson, a four-star North Carolina transfer, being injured since the offseason. Maryland is once again on its fourth-string QB, though this time it only took three games. The Terps have one healthy scholarship QB: Bortenschlager, the new starter.

A balanced offense and stout goaltending have proved a successful formula for the Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team, which is seeking its 13th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance.

Someday, Maryland’s going to have a good quarterback not get hurt. But there’s now a real chance the Terps have to use a walk-on QB at some point during Big Ten play, if not dip into the non-QB ranks yet again to find one. A team that looked like it could win six or seven games after upsetting Texas in Week 1 is now in dire straits, again. This is nobody’s fault, but it’s a pretty huge shame.Start Photo Feature Full List Showing photos 1 – 11 of 11 Author Josh Stirn @Josh_Stirn

Maryland QB Kasim Hill has torn ACL, out for season

Maryland offensive coordinator Walt Bell said earlier this month that he would also consider using running backs Ty Johnson and Lorenzo Harrison under center if he was in a pinch, but for now it appears that Bell will rely on Bortenschlager remaining healthy and Henderson finding his way back onto the field.

The Maryland football team stepped onto Capital One Field on Saturday afternoon full of promise and the early-season enthusiasm of an undefeated team, but it wasn’t long before the Terps faithful was lamenting…

Maryland (2-1) now has only two scholarship quarterbacks, sophomore Max Bortenschlager and junior transfer Caleb Henderson, available for its Big Ten opener Saturday against Minnesota.

” class=”image-lazy” /> Maryland football runs all over Minnesota in its 31-24 win to begin Big Ten play The Terps rushed for 262 yards against one of the nation’s best run defenses.

When Pigrome tore his ACL three weeks earlier, Maryland faced even more daunting obstacles. The Terps led by three in the third quarter at then-No. 23 Texas in front of 88,396 rowdy fans and two million more watching on TV.

Maryland's Kasim Hill out for season with torn ACL

“Kasim [Hill] went down in the game, Kasim suffered a torn ACL,” said Maryland head coach DJ Durkin. “He’ll be getting surgery here sometime soon. We don’t have the date set yet, we’re waiting for the swelling to go down and make sure we handle that the right way. I really feel for Kasim. There are not many kids that have higher character than that guy. Worked really hard and I thought he performed really well for this team. It was a tough play. He was competing, got spun around, got hit, and went down in the game. He’ll bounce back. He’s got a great future in football, both here and beyond. I think that’s pretty clear. That guy is a phenomenal talent, doesn’t even compare to the type of person he is. He’s got a great attitude about it. He’s looking this thing right in the face saying ‘Let’s go get it.’ He’ll get surgery and rehab and will be back with us when the time allows.”

His biggest asset against Minnesota will be junior wide receiver D.J. Moore. He is far and away the Terps’ best option in the passing game, with 28 receptions, 281 receiving yards, and four touchdowns. Senior receiver Taivon Jacobs (10 receptions, 150 receiving yards, one touchdown) is their next best option, but no one else even comes close to Moore’s production. Those two are the only receivers with a touchdown this season.

James Franklin raised some eyebrows this offseason when he announced that running back Saquon Barkley was going to be returning kickoffs in certain situations this season. If Franklin was going to insist continuing to use his best offensive player in such situations, then it was only a matter of time before Barkley managed to break one loose for a big return.Bortenschlager was 15 of 16 passing for 132 yards, a touchdown and a pair of interceptions after coming in against UCF.  He looks for his first college win when he leads the Terps into the program’s first-ever trip to Minnesota.

The offensive line is now tied for 101st in the nation after allowing five sacks against Central Florida, all of which came after Bortenschlager was inserted into the game. The Terps have also allowed 17 tackles for loss, which places them at 64th in the country averaging 5.67 TFL per game. The unit returned three starters from a season ago.Gophers, like many, no longer stand on sidelines for national anthem Randy JohnsonFingers can be pointed towards the durability of dual-threat quarterbacks, or the workload that they take on. Their sizes are often not comparable to the defenders tackling them. The true basis of a dual threat quarterback should require the size similar to Cam Newton, who stood at a powerful 6’6 and 250 pounds.Maryland’s Melvin Keihn (15) nearly intercepts a pass, targeted for UCF running back Taj McGowan (12), resulting in an incomplete pass.
