bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The University of Maryland football team is hoping Bruce Perry has a long memory with indelible recall. That way, the senior running back can conjure up the good times of the 2001 season while fast-forwarding through the 18 months of agony which have followed. After a glorious sophomore season, Perry has spent the last 1 1/2 years recovering from a number of nagging injuries. The senior came to Terrapins camp in good health and with high expectations only to be bitten by the injury bug again, placing his chances of playing in the season opener at Northern Illinois on Aug. 28 in jeopardy.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The days of free expression are over for the University of Maryland football team. At least for the quarterbacks. At least for now. Coach Ralph Friedgen has different plans for starter Scott McBrien and backup Chris Kelley this weekend when the Terps open the home season against Akron. The free-flowing Maryland offense will be slowed by an anchor after the choppy outing the Terps encountered last Saturday in a 22-0 loss to Notre Dame.

keller@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - A three-minute span in the third quarter of Maryland's 33-20 win over Duke on Saturday pretty accurately summed up the last two years of Bruce Perry's football life. Perry made two big plays early in the second half, coaxing a crowd of 50,084 into the prolonged shouting of his name that rang through Byrd Stadium in 2001. "Bruuuuuce!" But after fumbling on a middle running play, Perry let loose a little frustration.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Ralph Friedgen walks in a different world compared to the average guy. He's a football coach - more exactly, the University of Maryland's head football coach - so any eccentrics are ignored. But oddly, there actually is something that can distract Friedgen away from realizing that his best offensive weapon is about to return to the playing field on Saturday. That thing, believe it or not, is Wofford College. The announcement that tailback Bruce Perry, a first-team All-American and last season's Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Year, took a backseat to Friedgen's concerns of playing Wofford.

keller@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - It seems quarterback controversies get most of the ink in football. The Maryland Terrapins have had just such a battle simmering this season between Scott McBrien and Chris Kelley, although McBrien may have taken the upper hand with his 300-yard, three-touchdown performance in Saturday night's 45-3 win over Eastern Michigan at Byrd Stadium. The more pressing question for the Terps now is who is going to be the feature running back?

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - It was a new old version of Bruce Perry walking around the University of Maryland football facility on Saturday night. He looked like the same guy people used to see 18 months ago when things were going well for the tailback. But lately, Perry hadn't been looking like himself. ... Until Saturday. "I ain't seen you smile in six months," someone yelled to Perry as he walked through the halls at Gossett Team House near Byrd Stadium.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. There are a lot of things that Josh Allen isn't. The University of Maryland tailback is not loud. He's not overused. He's not cocky or overconfident. And most of all, he's not a very good comedian. "Before the game we were joking and I asked him 'How about 100 yards?'" quarterback Scott McBrien said. "He said 'How about 200?'" And last of all, he's a not a good predictor of his abilities. Allen ripped off 257 yards on 38 carries 57 more than his joking prediction and two touchdowns for the third-best rushing game in history to lift the Terps to a sorely needed 27-17 victory over Virginia Thursday in a pivotal game in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship and bowl chase race.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - There's no such thing as a mulligan in football. As much as the University of Maryland football team might like to deny it, last Thursday's 20-13 overtime loss to Northern Illinois goes on the final scorecard as a stroke driven way out of bounds. It wasn't just a loss to Maryland. It stunned the Terps. Instead of reveling in a season-opening win to set up this week's crucial meeting with Florida State, it became a week of reassessing and rationalizing before the key Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Perception is everything. It is more mental than physical. It's good salesmanship. It's inspirational speaking. It's reality's hall of mirrors. Perception allows the belief that something can be pulled off to be stronger than the actual ability to accomplish it. Example? How long has the city of Hagerstown pulled off the illusion of being a "baseball town?" Twenty-two years? Now that's one for the Perception Hall of Fame. But really, there's nothing fake about good perception.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Ralph Friedgen was starting to feel like the captain of a ship that had run aground. The University of Maryland football coach enjoyed virtually smooth sailing his first two season at the helm of the Terrapins. Just his mere presence turned the troubled Terps' program starboard, qualifying for major holiday bowls in his first two seasons. But this year, it was much different. Maryland entered the season with high expectations.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - They warm up. They come out and give it their best shot. And then they wait for the judges to vote for the winner. No, it's not the latest episode in the search for another American Idol. It's just another day in the life of being a Maryland tailback. Today is the day that coach Ralph Friedgen - the master judge - will select who will start on Saturday against Duke. Chris Downs, who rushed for 212 yards and three touchdowns last week against Georgia Tech, and Josh Allen, the Terps' freshman phenom have been the main players vying to start in the backfield.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Chris Downs is having trouble figuring it all out. From where he sits, it's uncomfortable. It's probably because of all the bright camera lights in his eyes and the microphones and tape recorders waving in his face. After all, all he does is run with the football for the University of Maryland football team. "I don't like all this attention," Downs said Saturday. "It's not for me. " For now, he has to get used to it. People are heaping all that attention on him because of the way he does run the football for the University of Maryland.
