Maryland offensive coordinator Walt Bell is confident freshman quarterback Kasim Hill can lead the Terps' offense effectively, but Bell expressed sadness that sophomore Tyrrell Pigrome's season ended when he tore the ACL in his right knee on the final play of the third quarter of Maryland's 51-41 win at Texas Sept. 2.
"That kid's been through a lot, and for him to do what he did from the day the season ended until last Saturday, to have that taken away from him, that's heartbreaking," Bell said Sept. 6. "When he gets out of surgery [Sept. 7], I'll be there in the hospital room waiting on him after practice. I hurt for him, not for the football team. He'll be around. He'll be there with me every step of the way. If it's legal and we're allowed to do it with him, we'll do it.
"We will miss Pig. I will miss Pig. I love that kid. It's going to be tough not having him out there every day."
