COLLEGE PARK - The fans called him a traitor. His ex-teammates razzed him. They cursed at him. They told him he wasn't good enough to play with them, then tried to knock him senseless to prove they were right. But when Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien led a 48-17 rout last year of West Virginia, the school he had transferred from in 2001, he ended up having the last word in the matter. "Last year, they were talking all kinds of trash to Scott, like, `You weren't good enough to play here' and all that," said Maryland offensive lineman Eric Dumas.

Donald E. McBrien, former director of pupil services for Howard County public schools who earlier held the same position in Baltimore County public schools, died Wednesday of congestive heart failure at St. Agnes Hospital. The longtime Ellicott City resident was 79. "Don was a good friend and perfect for that job because he had great empathy for people who needed guidance or help," said Robert Y. Dubel, who headed Baltimore County public schools for 16 years until retiring in 1992.

COLLEGE PARK - "Please raise your hand," a columnist in West Virginia wrote shortly after the season began, "those who believe former Mountaineer Scott McBrien still will be Maryland's starting quarterback when the Terps visit West Virginia on Oct. 5." Nearly eight weeks past that date, the question seems frivolous now as Maryland prepares to play Wake Forest tomorrow. McBrien started and starred against the Mountaineers in a 48-17 win, the springboard to a great season in which his passing stats compare favorably to those of Shaun Hill, who finished third in voting for Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Year last year.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien practiced yesterday for the first time this week, and afterward declared himself ready to play in Saturday's homecoming game against North Carolina. McBrien said he had a magnetic resonance imaging test yesterday morning to determine if there were any lingering effects from the concussion he sustained Oct. 23 against Georgia Tech, and that he was given a clean bill of health. After sitting out the previous two days, he admitted that playing again was somewhat therapeutic.

CLEMSON, S.C. - The interceptions sat in the middle of Scott McBrien's stat line, standing out ahead of the quarterback's 13 completed passes out of 23 attempts for 153 yards. The eyes scanning the box went right to the three picks, even ahead of the three touchdowns he threw, or the one score he ran for in Maryland's 30-12 victory over Clemson on Saturday night. "It's a shame, because he made some great throws, too," coach Ralph Friedgen said after his team's eighth straight win moved the Terrapins (9-2, 5-1)

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien is going back to his old school, and Terps coach Ralph Friedgen does not want the junior to talk about it. As the Terps prepare for their first road trip in a month, a ride that will take them on Saturday into the nasty atmosphere of Mountaineer Field against a familiar opponent in West Virginia, Maryland figures to find out much about its makeup as the rest of the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule lies...

COLLEGE PARK - For 15 minutes yesterday, Scott McBrien was nowhere to be found. Practice had started and players were done stretching, but Maryland's senior quarterback was noticeably absent. In his place, freshman Joel Statham was rifling passes to the Terps' starting wide receivers, and, periodically, offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe was offering encouragement while fiddling with the young quarterback's mechanics. Finally, McBrien appeared, jogging slowly out from behind the fence that surrounds the practice field.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Maryland Terrapins entered a new season last night with a host of question marks surrounding their unproven quarterback position, and in a 22-0 loss to Notre Dame at Giants Stadium in the 20th and final Kickoff Classic, their passers earned some experience the hard way. As expected, redshirt junior Scott McBrien started the game, while sophomore Chris Kelley got his first taste of live action after overcoming three knee operations....

COLLEGE PARK -- It might seem odd, but Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen and senior quarterback Scott McBrien don't talk much during the week. It's not that they dislike each other -- quite the opposite, in fact -- it's that McBrien is one of the team's true introverts. He prefers to go about his business, listening plenty but saying little. So Friedgen admits he was a bit surprised this week when McBrien walked past him at the end of practice and mumbled two words he hoped would put his coach at ease.

COLLEGE PARK -- For at least this week, the play of Maryland sophomore quarterback Joel Statham will have to speak for itself. In an effort to protect Statham and perhaps sharpen his focus, coach Ralph Friedgen declared that his quarterback would be off-limits to the media this week as the team prepares for its Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Duke in Durham, N.C. Statham was just 9-for-20 for 108 yards and threw three first-half interceptions in...

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen showed off his team's new dining facilities yesterday. Later this month, he'll show off the Terps' new uniforms. In between, Friedgen will devote most of his waking hours to picking a new quarterback. All that's new isn't the only focus for Maryland's football team, which begins three weeks of spring practice today. But as Friedgen starts his fourth year with the program, it's what stands out. The new dining facilities represent one of the final touches on a $3 million expansion of the Gossett Team House that began two years ago. The new uniforms are part of a $2.6 million deal with Under Armour that was signed in January, and they should be unveiled - with the help of former Terp Boomer Esiason - when Maryland holds its spring game April 24. Picking a new quarterback, however, is the subject that will loom over all the others this spring, both in media coverage and in the conversations the coaching staff has behind closed doors.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - He could have said superb, and he could have said gracious. Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen could have used the word relieved to describe his senior quarterback yesterday, because clearly that was the case. But after watching Scott McBrien throw for a career-high 381 yards and three touchdowns in a 41-7 Gator Bowl rout of West Virginia, Friedgen found an even better way to describe his senior quarterback. McBrien was, quite simply, divine. "Scott," Friedgen said, "was heaven."

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For a young quarterback at Maryland, learning Ralph Friedgen's complex offense is not unlike trying to learn a second language. It starts in a classroom, requires hours of daily study and then takes practice and more practice. And just when the quarterback feels like he's gained a little confidence, along comes the two-minute, no-huddle attack. He calls the plays, makes all the decisions, keeps one eye on the clock and the other on the defense. It's a pressure-packed, frantic final exam for Terps signal callers.

COLLEGE PARK - The less Scott McBrien has to say, the more Ralph Friedgen likes his chances against West Virginia in the Gator Bowl next month. And so, with Maryland's football team resuming practices this week in preparation for the Terps' Jan. 1 game with the Mountaineers, Friedgen gave the media one last chance to speak to McBrien. Starting today, the Terps' quarterback is off limits. "I'd rather put the onus on me than put Scott in a tough situation," Friedgen said. "I'm not worried about whether Scott can handle it, I just don't want Scotty to be bombarded with questions when he's getting ready to play a game."

COLLEGE PARK - Scott McBrien isn't going to lie. More than two weeks later, his head still hurts. "It bothers me all the time," said McBrien, who suffered a concussion in Maryland's 7-3 loss to Georgia Tech on Oct. 23. "Once the game gets going, my adrenaline takes over and I really can't feel it. But practicing is tough out here." The cold weather hasn't helped matters, either. "I didn't believe [the doctors] when they told me it would hurt once it got cold, but I feel like I have a rod in my head sometimes," McBrien said.

Scott McBrien should remain at quarterback for Maryland's home opener against Akron on Saturday, football coach Ralph Friedgen indicated in a teleconference yesterday. McBrien, a junior who transferred from West Virginia a year ago, struggled in his Terrapins debut, a 22-0 loss to Notre Dame on Saturday night in the Kickoff Classic in East Rutherford, N.J. He completed only nine of his 23 passes, and two of his throws were intercepted as the team amassed only 117 passing yards. Asked about a possible switch to Chris Kelley - the other candidate to replace Shaun Hill during fall camp - Friedgen said, "I don't see a change."

The status of Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien for Saturday's game against North Carolina "remains unclear," team officials said yesterday. McBrien, a senior, suffered a concussion in the first half of the Terps' 7-3 loss to Georgia Tech on Thursday night, and he did not return in the second half. The team was hoping he would be ready to return to practice yesterday, and in its weekly football release, Maryland said McBrien would be back "without limitations." That apparently changed late yesterday when the athletic department said McBrien would be listed as questionable for Saturday's homecoming game.

COLLEGE PARK - When searching yesterday for a word to describe his performance, Scott McBrien could have picked brilliant, and no one would have dared disagree. He could have picked courageous, and no one would have laughed. You could even argue that after playing the best game of his career, he could have picked flawless, because at times, Maryland's senior quarterback was all those things. Instead, the word McBrien chose was careless. "It might sound odd, but I played careless today," McBrien said.
