Maryland football players and coaches spent Sunday breaking down and critiquing their 52-24 loss Saturday to Ohio State at Byrd Stadium. Now the Terps hope to take advantage of their bye week before preparing for their Oct. 18 home game against Iowa. In particular, Maryland (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten Conference) will look to get as healthy as possible. Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15. Starters such as inside linebackers Cole Farrand and L.A. Goree also have been playing through injuries.

At mealtime, the South Campus Dining Room on the University of Maryland's campus is more town hall than eating space, a meeting spot abuzz with the goings-on of class, nightlife and, of course, Maryland sports. So when an electronic "BEAT WILLIAM & MARY" countdown clock inside the dining room began ticking down the days until Sept. 1 earlier this week , the discussion inevitably turned to the beleaguered program expected to dispatch that same Tribe, A.J. Francis listened in. The nose tackle shook his head at what he heard.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The game against Indiana on Saturday was a chance for Maryland to make a first impression, an early opportunity for the Terps to show they can be a competitive team in the Big Ten Conference. "We showed that Maryland football is as good as anybody else," Terps inside linebacker Cole Farrand said after Maryland beat Indiana, 37-15, at Memorial Stadium. Before the season, Big Ten writers picked the Terps to finish just fifth out of the seven teams in the conference's East Division.

Maryland announced Wednesday that cornerback Avery Graham has left the football team and has been given his unconditional release to transfer wherever he'd like.   “I'm disappointed that Avery has decided to leave us, but he didn't feel he was going to be a starter in the fall,” Terps coach Randy Edsall said in a news release. “Avery was a hard worker during his time here and we wish him well.” Graham, a redshirt junior listed behind Jeremiah Johnson on Maryland's spring depth chart, finished his Maryland career with 17 tackles in 13 games.

What in the world is happening to Maryland's football program? This is getting scary now. The way players are dropping down in College Park, it's like the orthopedic version of typhoid fever is sweeping through this team. Now it's senior linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield who's out with a season-ending ACL tear , apparently hurt in the second quarter of the Terps' loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday. Hartsfield is the fifth Terp lost for the season with an ACL tear, joining quarterbacks C.J. Brown, Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe, along with defensive lineman Andre Monroe.

Maryland, continuing its adjustment to a 3-4 defense, shuffled its staff responsibilities. Lyndon Johnson -- who was special teams coach last season -- will now oversee both outside linebacker positions. Last season, he coached the Star position -- a linebacker hybrid-- in addition to special teams. "With our scheme changes defensively, the Sam and Will are two of the most critical components of the scheme and I wanted Lyndon devoting his full attention to these positions," head coach Randy Edsall said.

Maryland football recruit Abner Logan was on Twitter this morning when he saw a familiar name, the one that looked like it had been pulled straight out of a word scramble. He didn't know anyone else with the name. It had to be the same player he'd faced for two years at basketball practices for New Hampshire's New Hampton Prep. Turns out, he was right: Evan Smotrycz and Logan will be reunited in College Park this fall , even if they won't be playing the same sport anymore.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland safety Denzel Conyers is ineligible to play this year. Conyers signed with the Terps after attending Butte College, a junior college in California. But the junior apparently did not have a 2.5 GPA at Butte, which is why he is ineligible. Maryland appealed the ruling on the basis that Conyers was a full qualifier when he signed with Florida International in 2012 and took classes this summer at Maryland to get the credits he needed. However, the Terps' appeal was denied.

COLLEGE PARK -  Three times last week, South Florida running back Marlon Mack found an opening in Western Carolina's defensive front, made a defender or two miss down the field and then outran the defense for a touchdown of 56-plus yards. As a whole, South Florida does not appear to be very good. The Bulls gave up 31 points to a Western Carolina offense that did not score more than 30 points in any game last season. South Florida quarterback Mike White, meanwhile, threw just three touchdowns with nine interceptions in six games last year and was just 9 of 26 with no touchdowns and an interception against a Catamounts defense that gave up 62 points to Samford last season.

COLLEGE PARK - Derrick Hayward did not look natural at tight end during the early part of preseason practice. Hayward, a redshirt freshman who signed with Maryland as an outside linebacker, lacked fluidity as a route runner. He was also inconsistent catching the football, as he was during the spring as well. But the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Hayward improved as preseason camp went on, to the point that he will begin the season as the top backup to starting tight end Andrew Isaacs. “He's continued to develop to where you'll see he's created a [role]
