#Terps QB C.J. Brown has officially been granted a sixth year of eligibility, per a team source. NCAA waiver had been pending.
Cool, not surprising, but glad it came through. Now, just be really, really good!
I guess we won't know if that is a good thing or bad until about mid-October.

There's 0 chance it's a bad thing.
The only thing left for him to do is be Case Keenum.

Of course it could be a bad thing. We are already looking at limited 'ships for '14 and I don't want a QB with a higher ceiling lose reps/transfer because of the logjam at the position.
So unless CJ plays well and wins us a lot of games, it could be a bad thing.
C.J. is such a good athlete that, even if he sucks as a QB (I'm still holding out hope for him), he can still be a huge asset to the team at another position like WR. This is definitely not a bad thing.
No. He's a QB, and he'll either be a good one or hold a clipboard.
Lets just go to the Rose Bowl in 2015!
Presumably, we are going to RS at least one, if not both of our true frosh from last year (likely one). So, that means that even with CJ getting the starting job this year and assuming he keeps his starting job for a second year, the position would be vacant when Cockerille is entering his sophomore year (potential 3 year starter), Hills/Rowe would be entering junior year (potential 2 year starter). So, yeah, conceivably kids could transfer for any reason, but a 6th year CJ shouldn't be a reason for any of these kids.
I'm a little confused by the hype and faith in a quarterback who has yet to win a game in which he's seen meaningful action.
We're Maryland. This is very surprising.
I hate agreeing with goodman on sports, but I do. One good game against a defense that gave up like 1000 points in their bowl game doesn't really prove much to me. He has yet to throw for even 200 yards in a game and we have no idea if the ACL has affected his ability to run.
I don't think anyone is believing that CJ is going to be RG III, but let's face it - we would have been much better last year with CJ over center the entire season, likely in a bowl game. And, while he wasn't incredible in 2011, it was his first time getting meaningful play and we did put up over 40 points in two of his few starts. He doesn't have to be great. He has to limit his mistakes and be able to take advantage of some serious offensive weapons
A less than spectacular line only increases his value. He is such a weapon with his legs that even if his throwing doesn't progress, I think it's likely that he is our starter for the next 2 years barring injury.
Jesus Christ, you suck.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
He's not going to just be handed a job if he's no good. The best QB will emerge. Personally, I think that will end up being Rowe in 2014 but we'll see.
It doesn't matter if he wins the job or not. A 6th year QB that doesn't start adds no value to a program. He would still take valuable snaps in practice and occupy a scholarship.
A 6th year backup QB last year likely would have started half the season.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...

Seriously, I don't know how you say something like that after last season.
