Maryland’s QB Carousel

Just days before the Terrapins were supposed to head into The ‘Shoe, Maryland’s quarterback was in disarray.

Caleb Rowe started against Michigan last Saturday was benched for the second consecutive week. Rowe was awful, going 8-of-27 for 47 yards and three interceptions. The young man somehow managed to make the Wolverines look like a national championship unit…and that’s hard to do!

Actually, Michigan’s defense is much improved this season, but that’s no excuse for Rowe, who has been downright bad.

Coach Randy Edsall has already used three quarterbacks this season, and he still doesn’t have an answer.

Some notable Maryland alum like Perry Hills, and believe he has the intangibles to succeed. Hills is 27-of-51 this season, for 306 yards and four touchdowns against two interceptions.

Rowe is only completing 44 percent of his passes and has four touchdowns compared to 12 interceptions.

The third quarterback to consider is Daxx Garman, who is 6-of-18 for 115 yards while throwing a TD and a pick in his limited playing time.

Maryland’s quarterback room should make Buckeye fans feel grateful about the current state of signal callers at Ohio State.

Cardale Jones may not be playing like the 12 Gauge of last winter’s postseason, but he’s still undefeated as a starter. Maryland would love to have a player such as Jones on their roster.
