The way Bret Bielema tells it, all the starts in the world at another school werent enough to convince him that Danny OBrien deserved to be a starting quarterback at the University of Wisconsin.Certainly Bielema, Wisconsins seventh-year football coach, had an inkling that OBriens experience would trump his competitors in a three-man quarterback race.

Randy Edsall, Maryland Handling Danny O’Brien Situation Horribly

I thought, and maybe Hickey would disagree with me here, that Indiana Hoosiers football had some flashes of quality play during their 1-11 campaign through the 2011 season. Quarterback Tre Roberson is pretty good and head coach Kevin Wilson seems to know what he’s doing (at least sort of). Things might just be on the way up in Bloomington.

Maryland: Happy Trails Danny O'Brien

Just one year ago, it was all smiles for Maryland Terrapin fans and Danny O'Brien.  He was coming off a great freshman season and us fans were looking at 3 more years of possibly our best QB since Scott McBrien.   Now he's gone.
