The Terps actually outgained the Seminoles almost halfway through the second quarter, but Maryland could not convert on third down.
Things really got out of hand in the second half, as it seemed like the Seminoles could score at will while the Terps couldn't even get a first down.
Certainly, some of the problems stemmed from the loss of quarterback C.J. Brown, who took a late hit that was not flagged in the second quarter and was knocked out of the game.
Caleb Rowe came on in relief of Brown but could not jump-start the offense. He wasn't exactly getting much help from an offensive line that could not run-block to save their lives.
The defense was actually able to get some pressure on the quarterback, but missed tackles and issues in the secondary really hurt the Terps. For the first time this year, the absence of two starters in the secondary really seemed to effect Maryland in the passing game.
It was disappointing to see less than 100 percent effort in the second half, particularly in the third quarter. Even the coaches seemed to throw in the towel, as Randy Edsall seemed more concerned with running out the clock than trying to score.
It's safe to say that Maryland will no longer be ranked when the new polls come out early next week. The Terps host Virginia on Saturday, which gives them a chance to get their season back on track and erase the embarrassment in Tallahassee.
