One of the hardest parts of Maryland's Saturday night loss was that the blowout occurred in front of so many of the players' family members on "Senior Night."
The 30 seniors, including injured cornerback Kevin Barnes, were introduced to the crowd one by one before the game. Coach Ralph Friedgen embraced the players under the goal posts. They then trotted toward midfield and were embraced by family members.
The players and their relatives seemed so delighted to greet each other.
A half-dozen of kicker Obi Egekeze’s relatives surrounded him, each wearing black T-shirts with “OBI” emblazoned on the front.
Center Edwin Williams said that he'll have good thoughts about what transpired at Maryland in his career. But he wasn't in the mood after the game to think about those good times just yet.
