Rowe has appeared in relief in each of Maryland’s first two games, a win against Richmond and a loss to Bowling Green.
Graduate transfer Daxx Garman is now listed as the backup quarterback.
Rowe replaces Perry Hills in Maryland’s third game of the season. They watched the film after the game and had a follow up meeting before making the decision to go with Rowe. “We haven’t finished everything that we’re doing”. He threw four touchdowns against two interceptions, but he completed only 53 percent of his passes and averaged 5.6 yards per attempt, more than two yards fewer than he averaged in six starts as a freshman. Picked off with just under nine minutes to play, the Terps were down by only a touchdown.
“Here at Princeton, if we can’t handle this and say, ‘we’re supportive of everybody no matter what their background, religion, race or sexual orientation, ‘ then we don’t have the right guys in the locker room”, Surace.”We’re going to support Mason 100%”.
The bad news for Terps fans, many of who I have talked to are already ready for basketball season to begin, is that Caleb Rowe also may not be the solution. Down 34-27 midway through the fourth with the ball, the junior threw his first interception of the contest that lead to another scoring drive for Falcons and virtually iced the game. His last appearance came in Maryland’s 52-24 loss to Ohio State on October. 4, when he was 13 of 22 for 173 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions. “There were some things that I could have done better, and that I can look to improve on”. In addition, wide receivers D.J. Moore and Taivon Jacobs are slated to make their first college starts for Maryland (1-1). The youngsters replace Malcolm Culmer and Amba Etta-Tawo, both of whom struggled with drops against Bowling Green.
Rowe immediately took over following the mistake and has since been named the starter for this Saturday’s meeting with South Florida. Edsall insisted throughout the preseason that he’s comfortable with all three of his quarterbacks.
With all the movement at quarterback, it wouldn’t be surprising for Garman to see some time against the Bulls as well.
With this announcement, he proved it.
