Updated 4:00 p.m. ET: Bad news if you’re Maryland. The worst possible scenario for freshman quarterback Perry Hills has come true.

Following an MRI Monday morning to determine the extent of a knee injury Hill suffered during Saturday’s loss to North Carolina State, the university announced that Hills has a torn ACL is done for the season. Hills was replacing C.J. Brown, who also sustained a torn ACL in August.

“I am very disappointed for Perry,” coach Randy Edsall said in the release. “I was proud of the way he stepped in this season and led our team. Perry is a great competitor and I know how strongly his teammates feel about him. We will do everything we can to support him through the rehab process.”

With both Hills and Brown out, the Terps must turn to Caleb Rowe and Devin Burns, who was originally a wide receiver to start the year.


For the second time in the past two months, Maryland is faced with the possibility of losing its starting quarterback to a significant knee injury.

In the second quarter of Terps’ first ACC loss of the 2012 season Saturday, Perry Hills was knocked of the game with a knee injury after attempting to make a tackle following an interception.  From the descriptions in various media accounts, it appears the true freshman, at the very least, hyperextended his knee.

Whether that’s the extent of it is to be determined as, the Washington Post reports, Hills will undergo an MRI Monday to determine the extent of the injury.

Hills has started every game this season for the Terps, completing just over 57 percent of his passes for 1,336 yards and eight touchdowns.  While he has thrown seven interceptions, he’s thrown just four in the past six games after his first-ever start netted three.

A three-star member of Maryland’s 2012 recruiting class, Hills took over as the starter a couple of weeks prior to the start of the season after C.J. Brown tore his ACL in mid-August.

Back on September 10, it was announced that Jim Harbaugh had dismissed Logan Tuley-Tillman for “conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete.”  Now we know what that unacceptable conduct was.  Allegedly.

Tuley-Tillman was officially charged with two counts of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.

From the report:

Capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person is punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of no more than $2,000, or both. Using a computer to commit a crime, in this case, would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5,000, or both.

The incident occurred in the 300 block of Catherine Street Sept. 4. Tuley-Tillman is accused of filming a portion of a sexual encounter with a woman without her knowledge and then transmitting it to his personal device without her permission, according to Ann Arbor police.

Tuley-Tillman was a four-star member of Brady Hoke‘s second-to-last UM recruiting class, rated as the No. 24 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Illinois.  He played in one game as a redshirt freshman last season, the season opener against Appalachian State.

This season, he had been listed as the No. 2 left tackle and played in the 2015 opener.

One of the most talented players on the defensive side of the ball not only in the Big 12 but in the country has seen his season come to an abrupt end.

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen announced Tuesday that Karl Joseph will miss the remainder of the 2015 season because of an injury to his right knee.  The hard-hitting safety sustained the injury in a non-contact drill during practice Tuesday.

The injury also marks the end of Joseph’s collegiate playing career as he’s off to the NFL next spring.

“I am devastated and heartbroken for Karl,” Holgorsen said in a statement. “He is a young man who has given everything he has to our football program and University over the past four years and who elected to return to WVU for his senior season to earn his degree and to be a part of something special with this team. He exemplifies what it means to be a Mountaineer. Karl is an All-American, a fierce competitor, a leader and I know he will have a full recovery, and I can’t wait to watch him on Sundays next fall.”

Joseph started all 42 games in which he played for the Mountaineers. He was first-team All-Big 12 last season, and his name littered numerous preseason All-American teams this year.

“I want to thank my teammates and my coaches for their outpouring of support,” Joseph said. “This has been difficult for me and my family but I know I will come through this stronger than ever. I will forever be a Mountaineer and will be cheering on our team every step of the way.”
