But Terps fans are more likely to remember how Petty stepped in as a freshman in 2012 and played quarterback after injuries knocked out the four players ahead of him at the position. The 235-pound Petty, who had played quarterback at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt , was serviceable as a passer.

Now Wells, who transferred to Maryland before last season and immediately became a starter, is legally challenging the procedure that Xavier used to dismiss him. “In July 2012, Wells was falsely accused of sexual assault,” according to a copy of the suit.

Two-a-days have ended and yesterday was the final scrimmage for Maryland players to audition for any remaining starting spots. It seemed like a good time to ask coach Ralph Friedgen if he has a sense of where his team is. "I don't," he said. "I really don't. I'm a little concerned where we are. There's moments in every practice when I think we're pretty good. Then there's other moments when I don't think we're very good. ... I'm really encouraging our leadership to come forward and kind of push us through this.
