Maryland struggled defensively in its 48-27 loss to Bowling Green on Saturday. That's no secret. Falcons quarterback Matt Johnson carved up the Terrapin secondary for 491 yards and six touchdowns, part of an overall offense that posted 692 total yards.
Many took notice, including former Redskins cornerback and current CSN analyst Shawn Springs, who appeared with host Julie Donaldson on Monday's 6 p.m. edition of Football Central on CSN.
Donaldson, transitioning out of news about Maryland's changes at the quarterback position, asked Springs what went wrong on Saturday.
"Quarterbacks always take the blame when a team loses," he said. "But you look at the defense -- 700 yards? They set defense back probably 50 years with that performance.
"Coach Edsall, a very disciplined coach, he'll make changes this week. They'll be much better."
It was a snowball effect that derailed Maryland in the second half of Saturday's loss.
A Will Likely muffed punt in the third quarter set Bowling Green up inside Maryland's red zone, where a touchdown followed shortly after. The second half also included back-breaking 99-yard and 73-yard touchdown drives that exhausted a Maryland defense that was forced to be on the field for more than 63 percent of game time.
The Terrapins -- and those adjustments Springs alluded to -- now begin preparation for South Florida on Saturday at noon in College Park.
