Maryland's arduous November continues Saturday as No. 10 Florida State at Byrd Stadium, a meeting that could both serve as the Terrapins' last home game and clinch a losing season for the quarterback-starved team.
Maryland coach John Tillman was vexed as halftime arrived Friday at Byrd Stadium.
Maryland's first season under Randy Edsall will end without a bowl. Virginia's second season under Mike London will probably be capped with the school's first postseason appearance since 2007.
Quintin McCree's five years at Maryland featured just a little bit of everything. So did Trenton Hughes'. So, really, did anyone else part of the Terrapins' erratic run in recent seasons.
The end of October was a welcome time for the Maryland football program at this time a year ago. The drudgery of a woebegone 2-10 season was seemingly shoved into the past for good as the Terrapins celebrated bowl eligibility and the possibility of good times ahead.

The coaches change. The players change. West Virginia still keeps beating Maryland. And turnovers continue to foil the Terrapins in the border series.
