Brown, Perry Hills and now Caleb Rowe have all gone down with ACL tears. Devin Burns, who came in to replace Hills after his injury against NC State, suffered a season ending foot injury during the same game.  So what does this mean for the Terps?

And Then There Was None, Maryland's Rowe Out For The Year

We've now officially entered unchartered territory as Maryland has lost an unprecedented 4th QB to a season-ending injury.  The new QB is rumored to freshman Linebacker, Shawn Petty, who quarterbacked Greenbelt's Eleanor Roosevelt High School last year.  If Petty goes down, which at this point you need to prepare for, Brian McMahon a freshman TE who powered little...
