Brandon Scherff: What to expect

The Washington Redskins needed a change in attitude along the offensive line and they got that in the form of former Iowa Hawkeye road grader Brandon Scherff at fifth overall.

Scherff is the fifth offensive lineman selected in the first round in team history. Sixth if you count TCU’s I.B. Hale, a tackle drafted eighth overall in the 1939 NFL Draft.

The others tackles taken? Mark May (1981 – 20th overall), Andre Johnson (1996 – 30th overall), Chris Samuels (2000 – 3rd overall) and Trent Williams (2010 – 4th overall).

Redskins Pros and Cons: Week 13

By Jake Russell

Early on, the defense, especially Indiana native Ryan Kerrigan, showed they wanted to win this game.

A sack-fumble created by Kerrigan that gave the Redskins offense the ball at the Indianapolis Colts’ 15-yard line was followed up with three plays for eight yards resulting in only a field goal.

The next Colts drive lasted only four plays when safety Ryan Clark notched his first interception since 2013 and gave the Redskins the ball back at the Colts’ 45-yard line. The offense again put up a dud, mustering only a three-and-out and a punt to the Colts’ 17-yard line.

After trailing 21-3, the Redskins put together strong scoring drives to end the first half and begin the second half to cut the Colts lead to 21-17.

That was as close as it would get the rest of the game.

At the end of the day, Andrew Luck put up a monumental performance by going 19 of 27 for 370 yards, five touchdowns and one interception on the way to a 49-27 drubbing. The loss knocked the Redskins down to 3-9, marking their ninth losing season since 2002.

Poll: Who should be Maryland’s B1Ggest Rival?

Moving from the ACC to the Big Ten has been quite the adjustment for fans of the Maryland Terrapins. Some have acclimated themselves with the move quite well. Some, not so much.

While the Terps consistently perform well in lacrosse, field hockey, soccer, women’s basketball and recently completed the best baseball season in its history, all eyes will be on how the football and men’s basketball teams adapt to the move to a conference with predominantly Midwestern schools.
