08:19 AM ET 10.29 | Caleb Rowe has fallen prey to the Maryland QB jinx of 2012, which had already claimed CJ Brown, Perry Hills and Devin Burns. Just one day after starting his first collegiate game, Maryland has announced [Rowe] suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Rowe, a freshman from Landrum, SC, went 23 of 40 for 240 yards in Maryland's 20-17 loss to Boston College on Saturday. He also threw his first collegiate touchdown pass. ... In a statement released by the school, Maryland coach Randy Edsall expressed his remorse over Rowe's injury. ... While no official announcement has been made, Rowe's backup Shawn Petty figures to start next week against Georgia Tech. However, Petty is normally a linebacker and has not played quarterback since high school.

I have never heard of a team having this happen, 4 different QBs go down. Even worse, not one is able to return.


Anybody had a word with the O-line coach about this...?

Edsall may want to wander over to the intramural games and check out the flag games for another QB. Believe thats where YA Tittle was discovered at LSU back in the late 40s.

Can't decide if it's Texas' fault or the ugly uniforms are to blame.......

This is as bad as AGHIRB (angry god hating Iowa running backs). Maryland is getting killed by this.
