- 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.

COLLEGE PARK - There was the torn labrum, the chipped bone, the groin injury, the problematic rotator cuff. Each has taken a toll on Maryland outside linebacker Matt Robinson , testing his body and his will. Seasons come and go for Robinson, but injuries often linger. When spring comes, he often is still healing from the year before. But this season, the savvy rising senior is healthy. As much as any Maryland player, Robinson was eager to greet the arrival of spring practice Saturday.

As the season began, Maryland had about a dozen injured players -- the preseason really took a toll. The number of players ruled out of action for this week's Wake Forest game has dwindled to three. However, safety Matt Robinson (groin) is listed as questionable. He had started the two previous games after missing the first part of the season with a shoulder injury. Another player out Saturday is reserve cornerback Alvin Hill, who was suspended for 14 days for an undisclosed violation of university rules.

Matt Robinson should be at the point in his Maryland career where everything is done on muscle memory. The former Atholton standout should also be at the point where his starting position is solidified. Had Robinson stayed healthy, and remained at safety, he might be at that point. But after missing large chunks of the past two seasons with injuries to both shoulders and his groin, Robinson is starting over as an outside linebacker. At least he's listed as a starter going into Monday night's first preseason practice in College Park, though Randy Edsall said earlier in the day during his news conference that the competition between Robinson and junior Alex Twine for one of the outside linebacker spots is among the most intense on the team.

A day will come when Matt Robinson will look back on his sophomore year in high school and smile. In the fall, he enjoyed his first season of varsity football, becoming a starter at safety and also seeing time at wide receiver to help the Raiders reach the regional playoffs. From there, Robinson, 6 feet 3, worked his way into the starting lineup of the basketball team as a forward. He averaged 7.5 points and nearly five rebounds a game, providing solid defense and hustle as the Raiders reached the county championship game and finished the season 18-6.

Consider the circumstances the Western Maryland men's soccer team found itself in when faced with the task of opening the season against highly regarded Carnegie Mellon.The Green Terror had eight days to prepare for their Sept. 4 game against Carnegie Mellon, which finished the 1993 season ranked 17th nationally and had six of its top seven scorers returning. And Western Maryland was doing it with a new coach, John Plevyak, who took over for Matt Robinson in late July.Plevyak was still learning some of his players' names when the Green Terror gave Carnegie Mellon all it could handle.

Nick Ferrara had such a promising start to his Maryland career. He won the job in his first season and kicked well enough to be named to The Sporting News freshman All-ACC team. He was 18 of 25 on field-goal attempts as a freshman. And here was a key stat: He made seven of 10 from 40 yards or more that season. Former coach Ralph Friedgen was enamored of Ferrara's potential as a long-distance kicker. But Ferrara, who also punts, has had a lingering hip-tendon injury, and coach Randy Edsall said today that the kicker's Maryland career is over.

Titus Till was the next Terp up. When starting safety Matt Robinson had shoulder surgery following the Sept. 24 Temple game, Till figured it was his turn. The redshirt freshman — who grew up in Italy and Japan and played soccer as his primary sport — had never started a college game. "It was heartbreaking to me because I've known Matt since high school. We were Maryland all-state together and played in the Crab Bowl together," Till said. "He had a face-to-face talk with me to just say, 'Yeah, you're ready, do your thing.

At 6 feet 4, Kenny Tate was a formidable safety, towering over receivers and his defensive backfield teammates. With Tate's imposing size, it made sense for Maryland to shift the all-Atlantic Coast Conference player to linebacker where he can do what he does best - unsettle quarterbacks. But the offseason move - as well as the switch of linebacker David Mackall to defensive end - has other implications for Maryland's defense as well. The moves have opened up opportunities for increased roles for other players in the defensive backfield vacated by Tate - including an expected leadership role for second-year safety Matt Robinson . Switching players' positions is akin to changing the letters in a crossword puzzle.
