Maryland cornerback Cameron Chism started 32 straight games from 2009 until being benched near the end of last season. He is one of just three players in school history -- Curome Cox and Bob Haley are the others -- with two interception returns for touchdowns (Miami and Clemson games of 2011) in the same season. Like the Terps as a whole, Chism, a criminology and criminal science major from Washington D.C., didn't  have the sort of 2011 season he aspired to. But he finished his career having played in 44 games -- 34 under former coach Ralph Friedgen and 10 under Randy Edsall -- and had seven interceptions.

- What Maryland fans saw was Matt Robinson sprinting from his safety position to behind the line of scrimmage, sidestepping a blocker, and slamming his torso against the shoulder of Miami running back Mike James before tumbling to the ground. James momentarily remained on his feet, then fumbled after a hit by Terps cornerback Cameron Chism. The ball was grabbed out of the air by defensive lineman Joe Vellano, who scored a Maryland touchdown in last season's opening-game win over the Hurricanes.

Milan Collins grew up in Louisiana dreaming of one day playing football for LSU. But when Hurricane Katrina hit his New Orleans home, plans for the future were abruptly changed. Collins, then a fifth-grader, and his family moved to Maryland after the storm hit so his father could continue working a government job. When the Collins family settled outside D.C., Milan soon found a new rooting interest. “When I moved up to Maryland, I kind of saw that LSU would be a stretch of the imagination,” Collins said.

COLLEGE PARK - Injuries are exposing freshmen and other inexperienced players to more prominent roles as Maryland heads to Clemson on Saturday for what coach Ralph Friedgen calls "a defining game" in one of the nation's most intimidating stadiums. The untested Terps, many of them on defense, will need to acclimate quickly to Clemson Memorial Stadium (capacity 81,500), a place opposing players either love or fear. Coach Ralph Friedgen is hoping it's the former when such players as Cameron Chism, a freshman defensive back, encounter the stadium popularly known as "Death Valley."

As midnight approached, C.J. Brown sat slumped in a chair inside Maryland's football complex after Maryland's 56-45 loss to Clemson on Saturday. A reporter asked Brown how he felt. "I'm tired," Maryland's new starting quarterback replied. And why not? Brown had just rushed for 162 yards. It was easily the most by a quarterback in school history, besting the 139 yards by Dennis O'Hara against Wake Forest in 1969. Brown had rushed for 124 yards a week earlier in a loss to Georgia Tech.

Perhaps Joe Vellano said it best. Clemson is not a team you can afford to get into a "shootout" with. But that's what happened to the Terps, who collected two big turnovers en route to an 18-point, third quarter lead. Give Maryland credit for that. Particularly since the Terps -- minus injured Demetrius Hartsfield and Kenny Tate et al -- were playing a handful of freshmen on defense. Maryland has had six different defensive starting lineups in six games. But there was an  air of inevitability about the Clemson Tigers and big plays, right?

A day after the Terps unveiled another set of new uniforms during their 32-24 win over the Miami Hurricanes, the sports blogosphere is still buzzing about Maryland's fashion sense and not star quarterback Danny O'Brien, new head coach Randy Edsall or even Cameron Chism opting to score a pick-six instead of taking a knee. If you believe there's no such thing as bad publicity, then you'll be thrilled to hear that everyone has been talking about the Terps uniforms -- LeBron James and Chad Ochocinco on Twitter , Skip Bayless and today's talking-head cohort on ESPN and pretty much any sports writer or blogger with an interest in NCAA football.

COLLEGE PARK - -When Maryland's gambling defense succeeds, it does so with a flourish. Consider the game-clinching sack and fumble it caused against Clemson in the fifth game. But when it fails, it's usually in equally spectacular fashion - at least for the opposition. Saturday night's 42-32 loss to Wake Forest provided further evidence of a disturbing pattern by the Terps of surrendering big plays. Against Wake, Maryland (2-4, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) gave up plays of 51, 48, 33, 25 (twice)

Four years ago last month I covered my first Maryland football Signing Day for The Baltimore Sun. There wasn't a consensus opinion on the Terps' 2008 recruiting class -- Rivals.com ranked it the No. 38 group in the country, while Scout.com had it listed as the 52nd-best class nationally. So how did Maryland's 2008 group ultimately stack up? Today we'll revisit my 2008 superlatives for defense and find out. Click here for a look at the offensive players . ************************************************************************* Most wanted: Given to the most heavily recruited Maryland commitment Who I picked: Masengo Kabongo - Fairfield (Conn.)

Isaac Goins came out of high school thinking he'd be a standout wide receiver in college. Alonzo Carter , however, had other plans in mind. Carter coached Berkeley (Calif.) High's football team against El Cerrito, where Goins was an all-conference wide-out. After the 2009 season, Carter was hired to coach Contra Costa College in San Pablo, Calif. Goins, meanwhile, held out hope for a Division I scholarship, but when Signing Day 2010 came and went, Carter reached out to the senior prospect.

Occasionally during training camp, Maryland football players couldn't help but smile as they sprinted through plays at a pace that was tiring just to watch. The Terps (1-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) were laughing at their own predicament - at being asked to speed up their offense until their chests heaved and they were drenched in sweat. Maryland's defense had to follow at the same speed. "At practice, all Coach Crow [offensive coordinator Gary Crowton] is saying is, 'Go fast, go fast!

Randy Edsall had been in this position before, coaching his first game with a new team. But Monday night's 2011 season opener at Maryland seemed different than it had been for him 12 years ago at Connecticut, or even when he joined Tom Coughlin to help launch the Jacksonville Jaguars five years before that. To Edsall, those jobs were a lot tougher than taking over the Terps from Ralph Friedgen. "This isn't my first first rodeo," Edsall said over the summer, at the Atlantic Coast Conference media day in Pinehurst.
