About The Terrapins

I know Randy Edsell is probably out after this game, or at least after this season. But Maryland came out swinging and did not let up all afternoon.

Edsell’s tenure at Maryland has been marred by bad luck and injuries, rather than his own coaching, but this team played hard and never let up. Perry Hills is not the No. 1 quarterback on the roster, and Edsell got his offense to look good against the top ranked team in the country. He may be out of a job soon, but he won’t be out of work for long.

Speaking of Perry Hills, he had himself a heck of a day (he may even pop up later in our wrap up with a superlative!). He had 25 total carries for 170 yards and two scores to go along with 133 yards in the air and a passing touchdown. No, he will not lead this team much further than they are given his issues throwing the ball. But, if you watched his 75 yard run, he has game breaking speed and athleticism. Hills wowed at times today with his running ability and helped put up 28 points on the top ranked team in the country.

Because of Hills and teammates, Maryland outgained Ohio State on the ground 253-182. Hills himself outpaced the Buckeyes most of the game and only had 12 fewer rushing yards than the entire Ohio State offense. It’s not too often Ohio State can win that way, but it goes to show that Maryland didn’t back down from the bully of the Big Ten.
