College Park, MD–

Today was one of the those tail of two halves game again Michigan, only the Terps second half, was just as bad as the first.   This was also a game that fans and Head Coach Randy Edsall would most likely like to forget sooner than later. Edsall would like to forget, as talk of him being on the hot seat didn’t get any better with the 28-0 end result.

Michigan led 6-0 at halftime before pulling away with two third-quarter touchdowns. After Jake Rudock connected with Drake Johnson for a 31-yard score, wide receiver Jehu Chesson took an inside handoff and sprinted down the left sideline for a 66-yard touchdown.

That made it 21-0, a deficit way too formidable for Maryland to overcome.

terps vs michigan 2Caleb Rowe had absolutely nothing going for him today and we mean nothing. He went 8-for-27 for 47 yards and three interceptions before being replaced by Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman, who also struggled. Since taking over for Perry Hills late in the Terrapins’ second game of the season, Rowe has thrown 12 interceptions.

“We just can’t turn the ball over the way we did,” coach Randy Edsall stated after the game.

The Terps have their hands full coming up next weekend against Ohio State and if they continue to struggle at quarterback, the result probably will be much of the same as it was today.
