Maryland vs Towson

9/8/2017 8:45:37 PM

The Kasim Hill era begins in earnest tomorrow when the Terps take on the Towson Tigers in College Park.

Last week's thrilling and improbable win was tempered by the devastating news that Tyrone Pigrome was lost for the year with a knee injury.

Losing Piggy is yet another big injury that this program has endured over the last few years. Aside from the fact that your heart goes out to Piggy. He was outstanding on the field and seemed primed to have a breakout season. Now his season is over and Kasim Hill has the reigns.

Regardless of whether Hill serves as an able replacement, it makes DJ Durkin's job even tougher. Having a true freshman negotiate through one of the best conferences in college football is a Herculean task.

This year's schedule is brutal. Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State all loom on the calendar. Michigan State and Minnesota are there too. If Kasim Hill can lead the Terps to a winning record with that slate, we've got a future star on our hands.

In the meantime, the Towson Tigers will be a low risk tune up for our young QB.
