COLLEGE PARK -- Could there be a better poster boy for Maryland than Brian Cummings?The Terps have 17 starters back from their best team since 1990, but the consensus preseason opinion is that they'll finish sixth in the nine-team Atlantic Coast Conference. Sports Illustrated places them in the bottom half of major-college football, where their No. 60 ranking among Division I-A's 111 teams is a testament to mediocrity.It's only motivation for Cummings, the junior quarterback whose throwing motion isn't hindered one bit by the chip on his shoulder.

On trial in 1895 for acts of "gross indecency," Oscar Wilde was asked to define "the Love that dare not speak its name." He described it as "such a great affection of an elder for a younger man as there was between David and Jonathan, such as Plato made the very basis of his philosophy, and such as you find in the sonnets of Michelangelo and Shakespeare." The love is "so much misunderstood," Wilde said, that the "world mocks at it and sometimes puts one in the pillory for it." If Wilde's jury had been able to hear a 1688 opera by Marc-Antoine Charpentier about the intense love of David and Jonathan, there just might have been an acquittal.

COLLEGE PARK -- Brian Cummings is supposed to have a big mouth, but twice he handed over his starting quarterback position at Maryland with nary a peep. He's put on hold his baseball career, played with a separated shoulder and spent 24 frightening hours vomiting after a concussion, all for the good of the Terps.Does that sound like a quitter, the accusation Cummings faced last winter?Cummings is undersized and overhearted, a fifth-year senior who's been known to work a huddle with too much lip and a play with too much grit.

COLLEGE PARK -- Honk if you've quarterbacked Maryland.Keon Russell is the sixth player to pilot the Terps the past three seasons. Two years ago, Scott Milanovich, Kevin Foley and Brian Cummings got turns. When Cummings sprained an ankle in the 1995 opener against Tulane, Orlando Strozier was the emergency fill-in.Redshirt freshman Ken Mastrole has gotten two starts in place of the injured Cummings this season, and when Mastrole fractured his right collarbone in seven places at Duke, Russell got his chance.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland senior wide receiver Jermaine Lewis had another big game against Duke last night to extend his school records in receptions, yardage and touchdowns.Lewis made nine catches, boosting his career total to 144, and one touchdown (a 45-yarder from quarterback Brian Cummings) to give him 20 for his career.His yardage was 205, lifting his all-time total to 2,330."This was one of my best [games]," said Lewis. "I was feeling like I was in a zone out there. Brian made the right reads and we did just about what we were supposed to do."

COLLEGE PARK -- The rain was pouring, but it was still a fiery football scrimmage at Maryland two weeks ago when offensive lineman Brad Messina and defensive tackle Ramon Olivares carried their aggression beyond the whistle.In rapid order, both were yanked from the scrimmage and interior defensive line coach Rubin Carter had Olivares down on the artificial turf practice field, where he cranked out some push-ups."You have no right to retaliate," the former Denver Broncos star bellowed. "Retaliation costs 15 yards and that's selfish.

COLLEGE PARK -- The program has had only one winning record since 1985, and the defense has been near the bottom of the NCAA statistics for three straight years.Scott Milanovich, the most prolific passer ever at Maryland, will miss the first four games because of a gambling suspension. The first two quarterbacks on the current depth chart, Brian Cummings and Orlando Strozier, have never attempted a pass in college.Those are some of the reasons the Terps were selected to finish eighth in the nine-team Atlantic Coast Conference in a preseason media poll, an appraisal that sits just fine with some at Maryland.

COLLEGE PARK -- Can the Maryland football team make it to a bowl for the first time since 1990?That was the key question as the Terps opened practice yesterday with fewer doubts than in coach Mark Duffner's previous four years at Maryland. The Terps return their kicker, seven starters on offense and eight on defense, and 10 of those 16 are seniors. They are coming off a 6-5 record, only their second winning mark in a decade, and have shown steady improvement the last two seasons.Will the progress continue?

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Quarterback controversy? What quarterback controversy?Brian Cummings is 4-0 as a starter for the Maryland Terrapins and 1-0 in relief after replacing an ineffective Scott Milanovich in the second quarter and leading the Terps to a 9-6 win over Wake Forest last night.Milanovich? He has a better arm, better credentials and an 0-1 record. And he was working on 0-2 and a horrifying upset loss last night before Maryland coach Mark Duffner finally yanked him out of desperation and Cummings bailed him out.Does anyone out there see this as a tough decision?

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Brian Cummings can pitch relief, too.The starting quarterback during Maryland's improbable run to a 4-0 start and a No. 17 ranking, Cummings came off the bench in the second quarter when Scott Milanovich struggled at Wake Forest last night, and helped the Terps pull out a 9-6 victory before 19,107 at Groves Stadium.Maryland (5-1, 3-1) was picked to finish seventh in the Atlantic Coast Conference, primarily because Milanovich was suspended for four games for gambling and his replacement was Cummings, a redshirt sophomore who has thrown plenty for the Terps' baseball team, but was a third-string quarterback a year ago.Cummings played the last 39 minutes, completed 20 of 30 passes for 222 yards and guided the Terps on three crucial drives, which resulted in a field goal, a touchdown and one last series that ate up more than eight minutes down the stretch.

Last fall, Brian Cummings was the third quarterback on Maryland's depth chart. Figuring that he might have to wait until 1997 for a chance to be the Terps' starter, Cummings considered transferring to a smaller school or concentrating on baseball.Step out of the shadows, Brian, and into the spotlight.Cummings moved up a notch last winter when proven backup Kevin Foley, the disenchanted loser in a quarterback controversy, transferred to Boston University. Two days ago, when the NCAA shocked Maryland by extending Scott Milanovich's gambling suspension from two to eight games, Cummings became the Terps' only experienced quarterback and a starter by default.
