Padgett convicted of reckless driving
Officer in riot found guilty
By Fola Akinnibi Staff writer
HYATTSVILLE — No criminal charges stand between senior James Padgett and the Terps men’s basketball home opener next week, after his DWI charge from a summer traffic incident was thrown out of court Friday. The men’s basketball forward pleaded guilty to a count of reckless driving in Prince George’s County District Court Friday afternoon. The charges stemmed from a June 16 incident in which University Police pulled Padgett over at 3:28 a.m. for allegedly driving without headlights, according to court documents. An officer smelled alcohol and administered a field sobriety test, which Padgett failed, University Police spokesman Marc Limansky said. Officers subsequently charged Padgett with driving while intoxicated and failure to display headlights. However, the Intoximeter test results that led to Padgett’s DWI charge were thrown out of court Friday due to an error: Padgett’s acid reflux condition caused mouth-alcohol contamination during the first test, his lawyer said, and then officers waited only eight minutes to administer the second test, rather than the prescribed 20 minutes. Padgett faces a year of unsupervised probation, a $250 fine and 48 hours of community service, and he must attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim impact panel meeting. One of Padgett’s attorneys, Rick Jaklitsch, said the results of the trial were not surprising. “The state wasn’t going to be able to prove any kind of alcohol violation,” Jaklitsch said. Because Padgett was not convicted of an alcohol-related violation, he can play in the November 2 matchup against Indiana University of Pennsylvania, according to Jaklitsch. An athletic department spokesman confirmed coach Mark Turgeon will not suspend him. “We’re thrilled on behalf of Mr. Padgett,” Jaklitsch said. “I suspect the basketball team is going to be thrilled too.” email@example.com

HEARTBREAKER Terps fall to N.C. State after missing field goal; Hills suffers potential season-ending injury By Josh Vitale Senior staff writer Brad Craddock walked onto the field at Byrd Stadium on Saturday with just six seconds showing on the game clock. The Terrapins football team trailed N.C. State, 20-18, and the freshman kicker had a chance to win the game with his 33-yard field goal attempt. Craddock told himself to take his time and swing through, to treat it the same as any other kick. He took three calculatedstepsforward,swunghisleg and sent the ball toward the uprights.
“I didn’t see it really,” Craddock said. “I just reacted to what everyone else reacted to.” That reaction involved falling to the ground in disbelief as the Wolfpack celebrated around him. Craddock’s kick careened off the left upright and fell to the turf, sending the Terps off their home field with a 20-18 loss. “That was a very disappointing and heartbreaking loss we had out there,” coach Randy Edsall said after the game. “They gave everything they had. We put ourselves in a position to win the game there at the end, but we just came up short.”
Two hours earlier, the Terps seemed to have little chance of notching their third straight conference win. They trailed, 10-3, late in the second quarter, and quarterback Perry Hills had just been carted off the field with a knee injury. But the Terps’ backups kept them in it. Second-string quarterback Devin Burns — aided by running back Wes Brown’s 121 rushing yards on 25 carries — led scoring drives of 44, 74 and 43 yards in the third and fourth quarters, giving the team an 18-17 lead See wolfpack, Page 7
Honoring a 50-year legend
The jury rendered its verdicts Friday in the trial of two county officers accused of beating a university student during the 2010 Duke riot, convicting one officer of second-degree assault and acquitting the other of all charges. The verdict concluded the five-day trial against Prince George’s County officers James Harrison and Reginald Baker in Upper Marlboro. Jurors found Harrison not guilty of misconduct in office but convicted him of second-degree assault, The Washington Post reported. Harrison, who is out on bond, is set to be sentenced Dec. 14 and could face up to 10 years in prison, according to The Post. Baker was acquitted of all charges. Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks told The Post jurors may have drawn a distinction between the two officers because it was legal to drive former university student John McKenna to the ground, as Baker did using his riot shield the night of March 3, 2010. Originally, the two officers faced firstdegree assault charges, along with seconddegree assault and misconduct in office, in connection with their involvement in the March 2010 riot following a men’s basketball upset of then-No. 4 Duke. The county had previously agreed to settle civil suits by paying McKenna $2 million and nine others involved in the postgame riot a total of $1.6 million, The Post reported. The other settlement recipients alleged police falsely arrested and physically assaulted them during the riot. McKenna’s attorney, Christopher Griffiths, argued the payments suggest other county police aside from Harrison and Baker were engaged in misconduct. “That’s an aspect of this case that the jury didn’t hear,” Griffiths said to The Post. firstname.lastname@example.org
Denton quad project behind schedule
Darryl Hill, first-ever black college football player in ACC, honored at homecoming game
Renovation will finish in November
By Jenny Hottle Staff writer
By Savannah DoaneMalotte Staff writer
As he entered Byrd Stadium for the 1963 opening football game against N.C. State, player Darryl Hill kept glancing up toward Ellicott Hall, the death threat he received earlier that morning still weighing on his mind. An anonymous caller warned Hill someone would shoot him from the roof of Ellicott if he stepped out onto the field, which at the time was not protected by the upper deck. So when the Terps celebrated their first points of the game with the traditional cannon firing, Hill dove to the ground, thinking someone had fired a shot at him. “My teammates — of course, they weren’t aware of what happened — were rolling on the ground, laughing,” Hill said. “I didn’t think it was so funny.” Fifty years later at Saturday’s homecom-
Denton Community residents are unlikely to see a quad of their own, clear of construction tape and equipment, until Thanksgiving, nearly one month later than Facilities Management anticipated finishing the project. Officials deferred the $3.65 million renovation from beginning on time because Facilities Management was unable to get the necessary building permits, according to Bill Olen, capital projects director. They then set the project’s new start date in June, pushing its expected completion back from early October. However, suspend-
alumnus Darryl hill, who was the first-ever black football player at this university and in the ACC, was honored at Saturday’s homecoming football game. On the field, he was presented with a new jersey with the number 50. charlie deboyace/the diamondback ing football game, the Terps went up against N.C. State once again, but not before the athletic department took time to honor Hill for paving the way for future generations. As a college athlete, Hill became the first black football player to break the color barrier at this university and in the Atlantic Coast Conference. At Saturday’s game, Hill walked back out onto the field and was presented

ing plans didn’t cost the university much extra money, Olen said, because it did not involve purchasing additional supplies. “The project has gone longer than we expected due to the delays in the beginning stages,” Olen said. “We started three months later than planned, so it was expected that we may finish later.” The prolonged work will bring residents an updated and greener quad, replacing a large swatch of grass with scarce seating. It will present many new landscaping elements and plants, as well as sustainable features, such as site drains and eco-friendly bioretention areas built to decrease rainwater

HILL From PAGE 1 Athletic Director Kevin Anderson also credited Hill with opening the doors for his own success. “If it weren’t for pioneers l i ke Da r r yl, I wou ld n’t be sitting here in this room,” Anderson said at the news conference, which was held in Gossett Team House. However, Hill said during his college football career he was more worried about fumbling the kickoff than being a pioneer. “But then I started seeing the horrors in the South,” Hill said, adding his best games by far took place in the South, where his mother wasn’t allowed to enter stadiums and his family was booed in the stands. “I
got more and more motivated because I thought we needed to shake things up.” The southern players themselves were decently respectful, Hill said, but the fans were a different story. He remembered his teammates leaving the stadium in a rush without even showering to avoid the threatening crowd surrounding the locker room. Hill said his teammates always took his side and refused to stay in hotels that prohibited black people. The president of the university at the time, Wilson Elkins, also fought to keep Hill on the team when the Board of Trustees said he couldn’t put a black football player on the field. “He told them, ‘That’s not your call — it’s mine. You see me next year at contract negotiations,’” Hill said. Within a decade, things had changed dramatically — black football players started for southern teams such as Clemson, where Hill’s own family was barred from the stadium during his football career. “I think sports is the single most important factor to social togetherness that this nation has ever known,” Hill said. “When blacks began to play college sports, that changed the whole landscape.” Hill’s story also inspired Engl ish professor M ichael Olmert to write a play, Moving the Chains, which had a staged reading at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington in March 2011. The script recently evolved into a screenplay, Illegal Contact, and production of the film is ex-

And everybody loved him. He had a great personality.” Today, Hill recognizes the impact he had on college football and seeks to fight against economic discrimination in youth sports with his foundation, Kids Can Play USA. The foundation helps low-income families meet the costs of league fees and charges and pay for equipment. “The idea is to remove the economic barriers from sports so that all American children can play. The youth sports now come with a price, and less fortunate children are being left out,” Hill said. “Our vision is a return to the day where sports are free and open to all children.” While Hill continues to enjoy watching the Terps play, the sound of the cannon still makes him jump. “Some th i ngs you never forget,” Hill said. “That cannon was one of them.” firstname.lastname@example.org

A s the on ly rema i n i ng aspects of construction are finishing the service parking on Denton Hall’s west side and a patio structure on Elkton Hall’s west side, the site is already experiencing less dust and noise. “The construction that is currently being done is minor in comparison to the disruption of the previous work,” Olen said. Though the construction has not been overly disruptive, said Denton Community resident Chris Leyh, an end to the ongoing work will be a relief. “The construction has affected me, but not too badly,” sa id the fresh ma n h istor y major. “It can be a little noisy in the morning now.” Freshman architecture major Jack Byrnes said he is looking forward to enjoying the peace and quiet of North Campus when construction ends and the quad opens to students. “Every other day, there’s jackhammering outside my window that wakes me up, and it’s really inconvenient to walk across the quad, since a lot of it’s marked off,” Byrnes said. “I’m excited for the construction to be over.”

Com i n g on t he he el s of constructing Oakland Hall and transforming the former Denton Dining Hall into 251 North, the renovations mark the final phase of Facilities Management’s three-year project to improve that portion of North Campus, according to Facilities Management Associate Vice President Carlo Colella. “T he qu ad has not been updated very much from when it was first constructed,” he said. “These renovations will signal the conclusion of the landscape enhancements of this area of campus.” In addition, ongoing construction should not pose an inconvenience to students, because Facilities Management email@example.com

My name is Zipper — Dick Zipper. And as names go, I think that’s a pretty funny one. As a kid, I learned how to laugh along and see how many variations of “Hey Richard, your zipper is open” kids could come up with. I would belittle those who were not original: “Egads! I have heard that one only 100 times before. Is that the best you can do?” When I started dating, it was a pretty good icebreaker. When I ran for University Senate at the State University of New York at Albany many years ago, I believe the “Check your Zipper” signs got me elected. So the name has worked out for me. Back in the day, when my parents named me, Richard was one of the top 10 baby names. I think most people back then associated the name with “King Richard the Lionheart”: a brave, wise and noble leader. However, the nickname Rick for Richard somehow evolved into Dick, which somehow became a street word for penis. So some of us ended up with pretty funny names — and these are real people: Dick Face (Australian politician charged with corruption), Dick Pole (a major league baseball player), Dick Finder (a urologist), Dick Trickle (a NASCAR driver), Dick Armey (a former congressman) and, according to whitepages.com, 195 Dick Heads in the U.S. (with 21 in Georgia alone). Before I continue with this childish (but fun) name-related humor, I think we should take a break for the educational portion of the column; after all, we are in college. The word aptronym means “a name which relates to its owner’s profession or

personality, often in a humorous way.” The first part of the word, “apt,” was intentional. So here are some aptronyms. Some of these make you wonder if these people chose their careers because of their names – or if they should consider changing professions. These are real people. Dr. Fingerhood (OB/ GYN), Dr. I. Ball (optometrist), Dr. Looney (psychiatrist), Dr. Croke (cardiologist), Dr. Hacker (plastic surgeon) and of course Dr. Cockburn (urologist). Then there are the dentists: Dr. Phil Wright, Dr. Les Plack and Dr. DeKay. Sue Yoo is a lawyer, Brad Slaughter a supermarket meat manager, Linda Toote a professional flutist, Sir Russell Brain a famous neurologist. A. Forest Burns is vice president at the American Forest Resource Council and, my personal favorite, Cardinal Sin, was head of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. Then there are names that are just fun. After all, wouldn’t it be cool to go on a hike with Chip Monk or talk about the Civil War with A. Blinken? And while most of us would like to have everyone chanting our name in an athletic competition, Olympic pole-vaulter Kim Yoo-Suk may not. What is in a name — especially an unusual name? They can be fun, and they can be a source of teasing. They certainly make you stand out in a crowd. So when you become a parent, if your last name is Lee, refrain from naming your kid Brock; if your last name is Baum, please stay away from Adam; if your last name is Bath, Anita may not be a good idea. Remember, although a rose by any other name is still a rose, roses do not have to attend elementary or middle school. Richard Zipper is a Golden ID student taking classes in biology.

EDITORIAL CARTOON ASHLEY ZACHERY/the diamondback
The Commons misconception
outh Campus Commons is one of the prime pieces of real estate on this campus. Students often resort to begging or bartering to worm their way into the elite, on-campus apartment complexes. There are many aspects to Commons’ appeal, from its distance from North Campus to its two-to-a-bathroom amenities. Students who live in Commons pay at least $790 a month (for four bedrooms, two bathrooms), totaling $9,480 a year. Comparatively, students living in on-campus residence halls pay $2,959 a semester, totaling $5,918 a year. Clearly, students are willing to pay for the supposed comfort of Commons’ high-end qualities. And for the most part, students living in the apartments are happy. They get their own bedrooms, have an easier time hosting parties and can quickly stumble home from Cornerstone. Is it really fair to ask for more? This editorial board believes it is, especially when what we’re asking for would simply ensure residents’ health and safety are met at basic levels. Recently, South Campus Commons apartments have been having major issues. At the beginning of this month, residents experienced a number of water outages. You went to the gym? Better find a friend in a dorm so you can shower in the communal bathroom there. That was a menial issue, but when you’re paying so much for a more private living space, you expect
your amenities to be in working order. Widespread outages across Commons buildings cause huge, unfair problems. Then things escalated. In early O c t o b e r, s e v e ra l s t u d e n t s i n Commons 7, the newest apartment building, discovered they had bedbugs in their apartments. Bedbugs have become such a prevalent problem in Commons that officials added a “bedbug clause” to the lease in May
South Campus Commons should not have water outages, bedbugs or mice; management needs to figure out how to effectively use the money residents are forking over to fix these issues. 2011 that states students must prove their rooms are bedbug-free when their leases end. The addendum also requires tenants take certain precautions against bedbugs, such as not bringing in furniture from off the street and notifying management if they believe there may be an infestation in their apartment. But despite these precautions, the bugs are back and it’s freaking everyone out. Then a Friday Diamondback article revealed Commons residents are finding mice in their apartments. Staff have received reports of rodents
in 20 apartments since the semester began, with some apartments having to report more than one incident. Many students have complained Commons is slow in reacting to its vermin problems (both bedbugs and mice), and more and more students are becoming wary of any slight movement in their apartments. These problems are getting a bit ridiculous. Though all the issues have been attributed to the construction occurring on Knox Road and the development of Prince Frederick Hall, these projects were planned well in advance. Commons officials should have anticipated the possible consequences and addressed them preemptively. But as they didn’t do that, there should be more timely, efficient responses to complaints. Bedbugs and mice have been issues in previous years. Why isn’t there an effective system for handling these pests? Water outages are sometimes unavoidable, but they should be more controlled or concentrated and not leave residents incapable of handling them. Students who live in the residence halls surrounding the quad aren’t having these same issues, and they are in close proximity to the construction. Does the Department of Resident Life have a more effective way of handling these problems? And if so, why haven’t Commons officials realized it? They have more money from students, so it should have more resources. Students love to live in Commons, and they pay for it dearly. In return, South Campus Commons should give students a reason to trust they will be taken care of under their roofs.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Election questions and issues
mong the many questions on the ballot this November, Question 5 — regarding the congressional redistricting plan — is important for all Marylanders. The issue has lacked publicity and the ballot wording is confusing, so it is important for voters to understand Question 5 will decide whether to ratify the new map — enacted by the General Assembly last year — for continued use in 2014-2020. As a proud Democrat and Marylander, I urge my fellow Marylanders of both parties to vote against Question 5. It’s one thing for the new map to provide one party with an advantage. But it’s deeply concerning how the new map harms and effectively disenfranchises certain rural and suburban Marylanders. Using thin ribbons, the redistricting plan ties together small population areas with distant and unrelated large population centers. In this manner, parts of Frederick and Carroll Counties were tied with a ribbon into the new 8th (mostly lower Montgomery County), central Anne Arundel County was
tied into the new 4th (mostly western Prince George’s County) and much of northern Baltimore County was tied into the new 7th (mostly Baltimore City). The new map can be seen on the state’s web site at http://www.mdp.state.md.us/ redistricting/2010/congDist.shtml. If we vote against Question 5 and reject the map, the governor and General Assembly will have to enact a new map — hopefully with more cohesive districts — for use in our 20142020 elections. Please vote on Nov. 6 and vote against Question 5. STEVE SHAPIRO email@example.com
With a hotly contested presidential election, this university has made registering to vote much easier for students. Voting is a way to express our citizenship and make our voices heard, so it is fantastic to see so many fellow students signing up to vote. Whether someone identifies with Democrats, Republicans, independents, Greens or any other party, voting is a vital part of the political process. However, the online
registration for students seems to have neglected Maryland law in fair voter registration. Having been a registered voter since the summer of 2011, I decided to take a look at the online process to see what it was like. Much to my dismay, I noticed this university had left several small third parties off the political party menu. It did leave a spot for “other,” but this puts these parties at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to registration. My friend who registered at this university, but not online, saw the options to vote for third parties registered in the state of Maryland. I registered when I got my driver’s license and saw these same parties, such as the Green and Conservative parties. Perhaps it was a mistake, but this university must show all registered parties — not just the major ones. Otherwise it is an unfair process of registering voters. Hopefully this can be corrected before the next election cycle so all parties have a chance to be heard in the political process. MATT DRAGONETTE FRESHMAN ACCOUNTING

Take the time to isolate yourself from the world Our generation is defined by communication, at a level that has both revolutionized the world and destroyed our independence
JUSTIN DENT The greatest moments of my childhood were the moments I spent alone. Even when surrounded by those I loved and cherished most, I’d often escape larger gatherings to read, write or simply walk. In fact, I had such a habit of disappearing on long walks with little reason or provocation, it became commonplace in my household to automatically — and correctly — assume, when no one could find me, that I was off roaming somewhere. Despite all these tendencies, most would have never have ventured to label me a loner; I enjoyed conversa-
tion and company, openly cherished my friendships, actively sought new ones and was — by most measures — a friendly kid, despite my quirks. However, in a society growing increasingly concerned with constant contact and the number of words said per minute, such independence or introversion is undervalued, underexercised and, as a result, incorrectly criticized or discouraged. Our generation will be remembered for revolutionizing the ways in which we communicate. The rise, prominence and strength of social media have gone a long way to connect individuals, maintain friendships and expedite the transmission of information across the globe. Undoubtedly, this rise has brought with it certain positives, but it has also diminished our capacity for
meaningful human interaction. For many, the mere option to stay in constant communication with their friends, followers and subscribers has turned into a necessity — dinners are full of tweets and short on substance; status updates are crafted for optimum ‘likes’; pictures and videos are taken to be posted, not remembered; and online back-and-forth replaces in-person banter. Our incentives for digital connectivity translate into the physical landscape, where a perverse motivation to say and share as much as possible dilutes the quality of what we have to say; the fear of not being connected dictates how we spend our time. We are flies trapped in a web of interconnectivity. The notion of willingly breaking away, taking ourselves out of
the loop, has become increasingly difficult. Our constant connectivity causes us to sacrifice — willingly or unwillingly — our individuality, from our personalities to our preferences and behaviors. We slowly become products of groupthink and the differentiation between ourselves and those around us becomes less and less. The stronger the groupthink, the more difficult it becomes to leave; when you break away, you’re the outsider, ostracized from the perpetual popularity contest that now occupies life. But for all the enjoyment you may derive from your online interactions and your constant communication with those around you, your independence is wholly more important. To this day, those around me have criticized me for being too removed,
quiet or introverted — and I’m OK with that. The number of words that you say may define your influence in some twisted calculation, but not your impact. The friends you make and maintain will give you great enjoyment, but your independence will always give you more. Be mindful to take time for yourself, regardless of what others might have to say or think. In the end, your thoughts will be yours, your behaviors and preferences your own and your experiences and lessons yours to tell.

This tour is one of the band’s first national trips, and they are looking forward to playing for new audiences. “The joy of being an opening band,” Bishop said, is that “there’s a lot less pressure. You kind of relax, take it easy, and really just try to make new fans. So it’s a lot of fun for us.” Bishop sees an opening in the pop music world for a rising rock band making big sounds. With the recent success of artists like Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers, Hey Marseilles is hoping they can follow the same path while remaining true to their roots. “It feels like the pop landscape currently is really interested in the type of soft rock that we produce,” Bishop said. “There’s a lot of acoustic bands out there that are doing really well on the charts.”

figures. Tami Taylor became the school principal, a force for good and fairness in an unfair education system. And Coach? Well, Coach Taylor was just something to behold. The man could give as rousing a speech as anyone, but with just one glance, glare, scowl or smile, he spoke volumes. While it sounds silly to say this about a fictional TV show, both Taylors were something of moral philosophers, always in deep thought, always grounded within their positions of power and always doing the right thing. Coach became a father figure to nearly all the team’s players, and it almost never felt cliched or forced. I said I would put politics aside for this article, but it’s impossible for me to avoid sharing my belief that Coach and his wife would undoubtedly have been great friends with our current president and the first lady. Much of President Obama’s cool, thoughtful demeanor is Coach Taylor-esque, and Tami had a passion for education that would certainly help her bond with Michelle. But again, politics has nothing to do with this phenomenal show. Rather than featuring lengthy, preachy speeches, the series’ best moments often showcased shared silences and looks. So as I close this article, please picture me giving you a quiet, firm stare and a head nod implying you should immediately watch the entire series if you haven’t already. firstname.lastname@example.org

WOLFPACK From PAGE 1 with less than 14 minutes remaining. “Everybody came up to me at halftime and was just like, ‘Take advantage of the opportunity. Be ready to go,’” said Burns, who finished the game with 47 passing yards and 50 rushing yards. “That kind of settled me down some, so after that, I was ready to go.” Burns wasn’t the only signal caller who got a chance in Hills’ stead, though. After Niklas Sade’s 43-yard field goal gave N.C. State a two-point lead with 32 seconds remaining, Edsall called on true freshman Caleb Rowe to lead the team’s two-minute drill. “They were telling me through the headset, ‘Be ready to play, be ready to go in,’” Rowe said. “During the week we would do a lot of two-minute situations against our defense, and they’re very good. It wasn’t really a surprise.” He ran the two-minute to near perfection. He hit wide receiver Kevin Dorsey for a 17-yard completion, scrambled for
SEMINOLES From PAGE 8 getting a corner kick chance all in the span of five minutes. Florida State defender Ines Jaurena sent a hard-hit ball toward the net, but Terps defender Shannon Collins jumped up on the goal line, connecting her head with the ball and knocking it out of bounds. Just a few seconds later, midfielder Aubrey Baker stopped another shot from Jaurena just in front of the cage. “It was really nerve-racking,” Collins said. “We did have to defend a lot today, more than we would have liked. But we did hold our own. … Defensively, we did do pretty well today.” In the end, though, the defense didn’t have enough to keep the Seminoles off the scoreboard any longer. McCarty’s game-winning tally ended the Terps’ regular season in

an 11-yard gain and found wide receiver Nigel King down the right sideline for 33 yards, setting up Craddock at the 15-yard line with six seconds left. But Craddock’s wayward kick ended the Terps’ comeback bid. “It’s never good when you miss one. That’s being a kicker,” Craddock said. “You hit them and people love you. You miss them and people don’t like you. There’s no medium, really. That’s part of the game. You live through it.” It might not be easy for the Terps to live through this one, though. Despite all the positives — Burns’ emergence, Rowe’s poise and Brown’s breakout performance — the team suffered through a multitude of mistakes. Defensive end A.J. Francis and cornerback Dexter McDougle both dropped would-be interceptions. A lapse in the secondary allowed Wolfpack receiver Bryan Underwood to take a Mike Glennon pass 68 yards for a third-quarter touchdown. And Wes Brown’s fourth-quarter fumble ended a drive that could have salted away the Terps’ victory.
defeat, sending them into next weekend’s ACC Tournament losers of their past two games. As far as Morgan is concerned, the loss is on him. He didn’t think his players were motivated enough to play their best soccer, a task he said is his responsibility. But his team won’t put the blame solely on its coach. And when the conference tournament gets underway Sunday, Collins said they’re going to do a better job of putting a bit more responsibility on themselves. “[Morgan] takes a lot of things to heart. It doesn’t necessarily fall on his shoulders as much as he’s saying it does,” Collins said. “He does need to help us get pumped and ready before the game, but we need to take it upon ourselves to do so. If we can’t do it ourselves, then no one else can really do it for us.” firstname.lastname@example.org
“Since my bad shoulder had the ball in it, I tried to hurry up and cover it up. And by the time contact hit, I was too late,” Brown said. “If I didn’t fumble, we wouldn’t be in that predicament.” The most crucial mistakes, though, came from Craddock’s right leg. Despite making field goals from 36 and 48 yards, Craddock missed an extra point on the Terps’ fi rst touchdown — forcing them to try a two-point conversion on their second — and missed what would have been the game-winning kick. Despite an injury to their starting quarterback — Hills is scheduled to undergo an MRI today — and a number of mistakes on both sides of the ball, it’s the kicker’s final errant attempt that will resonate with the Terps the most. “Double the kicks, whatever it is you’ve got to do to make sure you get the job done,” Brown said he would tell Craddock. “So next time, we’ll have more confidence in you. We won’t have to doubt or anything.” email@example.com
HEELS From PAGE 8 you’re kidding.’ But then Keith makes a great save, and we come through in overtime.” Outside of a 2-2 draw with then-No. 11 UCLA on Aug. 31, the Terps faced perhaps their stiffest challenge of the season Saturday. Even when the Terps have struggled early, like they did against Rutgers on Oct. 9, they’ve been able to put teams away. But it took North Carolina 99 minutes to give them the right chance to end it, a process made more difficult by a waterlogged Ludwig Field. Bands of heavy rain moved through College Park before kickoff and throughout the first half, causing puddles to form on the goal lines and in the midfield. The start of the second half was delayed as the grounds crew used pitchforks to drain some of the water.
“The field did get a little too wet, a little hard to play on,” Cardona said. “But, I mean, rain is part of soccer. You go to England, half the games are played in conditions like this.” In the end, though, the rain couldn’t wash away the Terps’ 12-game winning streak or 14-game unbeaten span. The scoreboard still read Terps 1, UNC 0. A nd as Ci rovsk i stood on the soaked sod, he took a moment to reflect on his 20 years as coach and the battles he’s had with the Tar Heels. For a season full of looking forward — whether it’s to the next game, an ACC Championship or a national championship — it was a rare moment of retrospection. “This was a real classic N o. 1 v s . N o. 2 g a m e ,” Cirovski said. “It had everything. This is one of these nights that I’ll treasure.” firstname.lastname@example.org
LETOURNEAU From PAGE 8 carried the Terps to the brink of a landmark victory. Devin Burns, the former wide receiver who moved to quarterback when Brown was lost for the year, came off the bench to spark a stagnant offense over the game’s fi nal two quarters. He used his speed and deceptiveness to open up lanes for running back Wes Brown, who fi nished with 25 carries for 121 yards — the first time the Terps have had a 100-yard rusher in a game this season. Before Saturday, Burns had only seen the field twice all season. The redshirt sophomore spelled Hills momentarily at West Virginia and entered briefly at Virginia to offer the Terps a change of pace under center. But against the Wolfpack, he played with the poise and confidence of a skilled veteran. Burns used a combination of option reads and screen passes to chip away at the N.C. State defense and engineer touchdown drives on his first two second-half series. When he dashed 2 yards into the end zone on a bootleg with 3:33 remaining in the third quarter, the announced crowd of 40,217 burst into uproar, rejoicing as the Terps cut the Wolfpack’s lead to just 17-15. Of course, Burns was merely part of the Terps’ shocking comeback. Wide receiver Marcus Leak found room to run on screen passes and finished with a season-high 94 receiving yards. Tight end Dave Stinebaugh blocked a Wolfpack punt early in the third, allowing reserve wideout Levern Jacobs to recover the ball in N.C. State territory. And a makeshift offensive line, the same one that allowed five first-half sacks, bulldozed the Wolfpack’s front seven for long stretches throughout the second half. “We’ve been stressing that we need to get the run game
going to try and open up the pass game and vice versa, and I think the [offensive line] did a great job,” Burns said. “So I just came in and did what I could for the team.” Caleb Rowe did much of the same. The freshman signal caller, who hadn’t seen a single collegiate snap before Saturday, stepped on the field in the game’s waning moments to orchestrate the two-minute drill. H e n e a rly d i re c te d t h e ga me-w i n n i ng d rive, too. Rowe found Kevin Dorsey for a 17-yard reception, scampered for an 11-yard gain and let wide receiver Nigel King — who hadn’t recorded a catch yet this season — turn a short dump pass into a 33-yard catch. All in all, the second half was a breathtaking display of confidence and will. The best screenwriters in Hollywood couldn’t have scripted it any better: Two reserve quarterbacks come off the bench and lead an inexperienced group to the edge of a season-defining victory. But there would be no storybook ending. Kicker Brad Craddock’s 33-yard field goal attempt with six seconds remaining hit the left upright, sending N.C. State’s bench streaming onto the Byrd Stadium field with a two-point win. Maybe that ball striking yellow iron will be the lasting image of Saturday’s heartbreaking defeat. Maybe it will be Hills writhing in pain on the Byrd Stadium field after an illegal block sent his knee wayward. But Saturday was about far more than heartache. It was about a team that came together when it mattered most. It was about a group that refuses to break — even under the most trying of circumstances. “We competed; we didn’t give up,” wide receiver Stefon Diggs said. “Things happen; can’t do much more than cheer on your teammates and keep your head up.” email@example.com

For Terps, Not as bad as it looks
Despite disappointing homecoming loss to N.C. State on Saturday, team receives noteworthy contributions from host of reserves CONNOR LETOURNEAU Perry Hills wasn’t content watching the second half of Saturday’s homecoming matchup with N.C. State on a TV screen in the Terrapins football team’s training room. With his team down, 10-3, at halftime, the freshman quarterback approached coach Randy Edsall and asked to strap on a brace and continue competing. Never mind that Wolfpack linebacker Rickey Dowdy’s illegal block from the back had just sent Hills’ knee backward. Never mind the rookie, who was thrust into the starting job after C.J. Brown suffered a season-ending ACL tear in August, had to be carted off the field in the waning moments of the first half of an eventual 20-18 Terps defeat. Hills was willing to do whatever he could to help his team stay atop the ACC — even if it meant risking his own safety. “That’s what you love about him,” Edsall said in his teleconference yesterday. “You love that he’s competitive and all those things.” That competitiveness hardly ends with Hills, though. It’s a trait pervasive throughout Gossett Team House, one that’s become this young squad’s defining characteristic more than halfway through Edsall’s second season in College Park. No matter the circumstances, it will play hard the full 60 minutes. That mantra has perhaps never been more evident this season than during Saturday’s second half. While Hills grappled with a potentially season-ending injury, a host of reserves Quarterback Perry Hills suffered a game-ending knee injury in the second quarter. charlie deboyace/the diamondback

Downpour doesn’t slow Terps Team notches rain-soaked win vs. North Carolina, 1-0, on Friday By Daniel Gallen Senior staff writer
Coach Jonathan Morgan’s Terps lost to No. 1 Florida State, 1-0, at Ludwig Field yesterday. charlie deboyace/the diamondback
Morgan on defeat: ‘It goes back to me’ Terps fall to No. 1 Florida State, 1-0, yesterday By Erin Egan Senior staff writer For 85 minutes, the Terrapins women’s soccer team kept No. 1 Florida State at bay. Despite facing 14 shots, the team’s defense held strong, keeping its victory hopes alive throughout the afternoon. But the No. 7 Terps could only hold on for so long. Seminoles forward Tiffany McCarty finally broke through in the 86th minute, netting a goal past the outstretched hands of goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands to give her team a 1-0 victory at Ludwig Field. Coach Jonathan Morgan could only watch on from the sideline. But when the game was over, he didn’t place blame on his defense or his goalkeeper. He put the weight of the loss on his shoulders. “It’s on me because we need to be inspired and confident going out onto the field, and we weren’t,” he said. “I don’t think that was our best soccer. I don’t think it was even close to our best soccer. Something was missing today and we need to find out what that missing piece
was, but I think it goes back to me.” That missing piece could have been forward Hayley Brock. The team’s top offensive threat — she leads the team in shots (42) and goals (10) — received a red card and was ejected for fighting in Thursday’s loss to Miami, making her unavailable for yesterday’s contest. Without her, the Terps managed just six shots in the game and lost their second consecutive game — the first time this season they’ve lost two games in a row. “I don’t know how confident we were going into [yesterday’s] game and I think that ultimately rides on me,” the first-year coach said. “I don’t know if I did a good job inspiring them to play today. … We didn’t have the energy and the bite we’ve had in the past, and that’s on me.” The Terps (11-5-2, 6-3-1 ACC) did seem to have some of that energy on the defensive end, though. The Seminoles (15-1-0, 8-1-0) came out firing midway through the second half, launching three shots in quick succession and See SEMINOLES, Page 7
Nearly all at once, 7,340 people went silent Friday night. T he boisterous crowd — the second-largest in Maryland soccer history — was nowhere to be found. Gone was the festive atmosphere that percolated for 88 minutes in a torrential downpour. Gone were The Crew’s usual pleasantries for visiting North Carolina. Gone were the electricity and vibrancy that had persisted through the first-half deluge. And in that vacuum, the Terps’ undefeated start, their top national ranking and their ACC lead hung in the balance. North Carolina forward Rob Lovejoy was lining up for a penalty kick after Terps forward Schillo Tshuma fouled him on a run in the box in the 89th minute. At the whistle, Lovejoy took two steps to his left, as if to shoot across the goal, but instead shot to his left. Goalkeeper Keith Cardona, nearly horizontal, was there. “He kind of over-faked it,” Cardona said moments after the No. 1 Terps notched a 1-0 win over the No. 2 Tar Heels. “I’m not going to try to write a book on it. It was a pressure situation and with God and everyone behind me, I guessed right.” By the time Cardona hauled in North Carolina midfielder Verneri Valimaa’s subsequent rebound shot, the raucous crowd had returned. As a low fog rolled onto the field and lightning brightened the sky over nearby Byrd Stadium, a chorus of chants and yells ensued when the game entered overtime. In the 99th minute, Tshuma deflected forward Patrick Mullins’ shot past North Carolina goalkeeper Scott Goodwin, sending the Terps’ bench storming onto the field in celebration with a 1-0 victory over their archrivals. “Patrick Mullins, when he gets the ball, you’ve got to make the runs through the boxes,” Tshuma said.
Forward Schillo Tshuma (in between teammates, center) celebrates after scoring the game-winning goal in the 99th minute. The team defeated No. 2 North Carolina, 1-0, in overtime Friday. elliot kim/for the diamondback “He leads the team with assists, and I just knew if I made that run, I’d be lucky to get a piece of it. Thank God I was there in the right spot at the right time.” In a way, Tshuma’s finish was preordained. After the Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, native fouled Lovejoy in the box, midfielder and captain John Stertzer pulled him aside and told him the Terps (13-0-1, 6-0-0 ACC) were going to need him if they hoped to take down the Tar Heels (11-2-1, 4-1-1). Said Tshuma: “He goes, ‘Schillo, you’re going to score the winning goal. Just keep going.’” As the Terps dogpiled on the far side of the field, Tar Heels players simply laid down on the wet Ludwig Field turf in shock. North Carolina entered the night on a 15-match ACC unbeaten
streak, and Goodwin hadn’t allowed a goal since Sept. 28. When Tshuma found the back of the net, it had been more than 491 minutes since Goodwin had last allowed a goal. It’s not like the Tar Heels didn’t have their chances against a Terps backline missing star defender Taylor Kemp for the fourth straight game. In the 63rd minute, Valimaa fi red from distance but hit the cross bar, and in the third minute of overtime, forward Andy Craven’s redirect bounced off the left post. “I thought we played a great game, but we kept coming up empty,” coach Sasho Cirovski said. “I kept thinking, ‘Are they going to steal it?’ With the last couple of minutes, when they get that chance, you’re going, ‘Oh no, See HEELS, Page 7
