Schmuck: Maryland football shows big-play potential and something more important during difficult time — resilience

Who are these guys and where were they last week?

The Maryland football team thoroughly trounced undefeated Minnesota in its Big Ten opener Saturday at Maryland Stadium after being thoroughly trounced by winless Temple there seven days earlier. You figure it out.

This time, everything that could go right pretty much did. The Terps (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) broke off several big touchdown runs. They scored on a back-breaking pick-six. They had three takeaways and did not commit a single turnover. Interim coach Matt Canada had to dig deep to blame himself for anything that happened Saturday after delivering 21 personal postgame mea culpas for the Temple debacle.
