Davin Meggett and the busted play

Davin Meggett didn't grow up with his father, former NFL running back David Meggett.

But the Maryland freshman said he talked to his dad -- as he sometimes does -- after the Terps' victory over North Carolina last weekend.

The elder Meggett had watched the game on television. He wanted to know about what appeared to be a planned running play to his son.

"He was asking about a play in which it looked like I ran the wrong play," the freshman said. He said it was supposed to be a pitch to one side, but quarterback Chris Turner looked to other side and then just held on to the ball.

"Chris called the wrong play," Meggett said with a smile.

Meggett, who doesn't seem fazed by anything, had 86 yards rushing in the game.
