Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

Who do you like at quarterback?

So who do you like at quarterback on Saturday?

*Chris Turner? You can make a case that the fifth-year senior -- if his knee allows him to play, and that's a very big "if" -- has earned the right to try to finish out his college career on an up note. Coaches have obviously felt all season that Turner's experience at running this offense gives the Terps their best chance to win. Turner has had interception problems this season, though.

*Jamarr Robinson? He could be the future, at least in the near term. No doubt he is the most mobile of the quarterbacks, according to offensive coordinator James Franklin. So he gives Maryland a dual-purpose threat -- which is important when your offensive line is porous. But how effectiely can he pass and manage the offense? We don't know yet.

*Danny O'Brien? Playing the freshman sure would be interesting in that coaches rave about his acuity. Said coach Friedgen: "He's very mature for his age. He's very bright. He would have been accepted here at Maryland as a regular student. Came here early, went to summer school. He's in here watching tape all the time." But do you want to burn O'Brien's redshirt in this of all seasons?

Fridge has also said that freshman C.J. Brown should be ready to play. You may list him as a "write-in" on your ballots if you wish.
