Earlier this season there was a trend that saw college football players say dumb things on Twitter followed by those players and their teammates being told by their head coaches to stay off of Twitter. It made sense because you can't say anything stupid on Twitter if you're not on Twitter. It's a model that Ralph Friedgen may want to follow at Maryland, though it's not Twitter he should be keeping his players off of.
In October freshman offensive lineman Pete DeSouza broke both of his legs in a scooter accident, ending his season early. Now freshman cornerback Dexter McDougle will miss the Military Bowl against East Carolina after breaking his clavicle in what was described as a "single scooter accident on campus."
Though some conspiracy theorists believe there was a second scooter, located on a grassy knoll.
Fellow Terrapin Isiah Ross was driving the scooter at the time of the accident, but escaped without injury. The duo apparently hit a bump in the road that caused Ross to lose control of the scooter, causing the injury to McDougle and sent him to the hospital where he was treated and released.
McDougle played in 11 games for the Terps this season with 22 tackles and 3 pass break ups.
