If pundits and fans were optimistic before the season, it was largely because of Maryland's speed. But - with the exception of Darrius Heyward-Bey's long run against Clemson - the Terps haven't been taking advantage of this asset the past few games. Heyward-Bey had no catches against Virginia. Da'Rel Scott's longest run in the game was 12 yards. (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/terpsblog)

Like a band on its farewell tour, the 2010 Maryland Terrapins gathered a final time Wednesday and recorded one more win before sending a tearful coach Ralph Friedgen off with hugs, a Gatorade shower and 10 years of memories. If nothing else, Maryland's 51-20 victory over East Carolina in the Military Bowl provided solace for Friedgen, who had likened his final days at his alma mater to a "slow death. " When it was over, Friedgen smiled as he hoisted the gleaming Military Bowl trophy.

COLLEGE PARK -- Morgan Green was looking for a breakout game in last year's Red-White spring contest to propel him into the 2007 season. Instead, he suffered a break. Vying to start at tailback for Maryland this season, Green fractured his collarbone during the game a year ago after leading the White team in rushing. The injury, which required surgery, dampened what had been a promising spring. A year later, the outlook is different for the tailback from Charles County as the Terrapins play the Red-White game this afternoon at Byrd Stadium.

The Terps seemed listless. The Byrd Stadium crowd seemed restless. Everything changed once Tony Logan finally got the opportunity to field his first punt. Logan, who entered the day third in the nation in punt return average, faked left, went right and sailed 84 yards for a third-quarter touchdown that propelled the Terps to a 21-16 victory over Duke in Maryland's Atlantic Coast Conference opener Saturday. The Terps (4-1, 1-0 ACC) may have played an imperfect game — they trailed 9-0 until the final moments of the first half — but the victory allowed them to feel good about themselves heading into the bye week.

COLLEGE PARK - Another week, another "trap" game coming up for Maryland. The last time the Terrapins (5-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a nationally ranked foe, as they did 26-0 Saturday over then-No. 21 Wake Forest, they stumbled badly the following week against underdog Virginia. Coach Ralph Friedgen is hoping the scenario won't repeat itself when the Terps, who dealt Wake Forest its first shutout since 1998, host North Carolina State on Saturday. N.C. State is winless in the ACC, just as Virginia had been.

College Park - It should have been only a quarterback "competition," and a settled one, for that matter. Maryland picks Jordan Steffy, he plays three quarters against Delaware in the season opener, he sits in the fourth quarter in favor of Chris Turner and the Terps hold on, 14-7. But no, it couldn't have been that easy in College Park. Not the game against a team from the former Division I-AA. And not the quarterback competition. No, it had to become a "controversy." There could be a million reasons Ralph Friedgen took Steffy out with 12:08 left yesterday and put Turner in. The one given, though, smelled fishy.

- Tailback Da'Rel Scott , who broke his wrist in Maryland's win over Clemson on Oct. 3 and missed the next five games, has begun practicing and is likely to return Saturday against Florida State. But quarterback Chris Turner (knee) will miss his second straight game. The fifth-year senior is "50-50" to play in Maryland's final game of the season - and the last of his career - against Boston College on Nov. 28, coach Ralph Friedgen said Tuesday. The Terps have not won a game since Scott's injury Oct. 3. But Maryland (2-8, 1-5 Atlantic Coast Conference)

BOISE, Idaho - As they prepared for the Humanitarian Bowl, Maryland coaches knew they would have to stop Nevada's potent rushing attack. What they couldn't have anticipated is that they would spend valuable time and energy to corral and punish seven of their own players - including star running back Da'Rel Scott - who missed curfew a few days before the game. After meeting for 2 1/2 hours with athletic director Debbie Yow, coach Ralph Friedgen told Scott and the other players that none would be permitted to start the game, in which Maryland beat Nevada, 42-35.

— For the longest time, Da'Rel Scott wore the yellow jersey. The tailback had been slammed to the turf against California in Week 3 of the 2008 season, injuring his shoulder. For weeks afterward, Scott wore the bright yellow practice jersey so the defense knew to avoid contact with him. The jersey was a fitting symbol for an obviously talented player — a legitimate NFL prospect — who has spent portions of his Maryland career not quite himself. While his time in College Park has included memorable success — he has take-your-breath-away acceleration in the open field — it has also been spent navigating around obstacles.

If running back Da'Rel Scott seems a little quicker than a year ago, there might be a few reasons. The first is that Scott -- after suffering shoulder and wrist injuries earlier in his career -- says he is healthy. The second is that he said his muscles have been honed by competing this past season in indoor track. Scott ran 60-meter sprints, recording a time of 6.87 seconds. Maryland said he ran the fastest time -- 4.33 seconds -- among running backs in the 40-yard dash during spring football workouts.

COLLEGE PARK - -It has come to where Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen can't bear to watch a football team turn the ball over - his team or anybody else's. Friedgen talks these days like a man a little bit haunted. "NOOOO!" the coach says he screams when he watches a critical interception, even one on television involving another team. As his Terps (2-5, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) prepared for Duke (3-3, 1-1) on the road today, turnovers had become the bane of the coach's existence - and of his young Terrapins.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - This is not how Maryland wanted its regular season to end: watching another team, Boston College, celebrate winning the Atlantic Coast Conference division title the Terrapins had long coveted. But when it was over, the Terps could only watch Eagles players pump their helmets up and down as they savored a 28-21 victory and an Atlantic Division championship. It was the sort of celebration the Terps (7-5, 4-4) had imagined occurring at Byrd Stadium last weekend if Maryland had beaten Florida State and Boston College had lost to Wake Forest.
