Suffice it to say that Da'Rel Scott would like to forget about last season.
The rising senior tailback was hampered by injuries and could only watch from the sidelines as his Terrapins went 2-10.
Considering that last year was the year of the running back in the ACC, people are already predicting Scott to be one of the rushing leaders in 2010.
Scott had an 1,133-yard season in 2008 and he believes he can do it again.
Unfortunately, it's not going to happen.
Now Scott will obviously rebound, but I am adamantly saying here and now that he will not run for 1,000 yards next season.
First off, Scott will not be getting enough carries to lead the ACC standings.
His successor, Davin Meggett, split time with Scott and reached the endzone seven times last season. Furthermore, he averaged nearly 15 yards per reception, showing a versatility that will put him on the field.
Quarterback Jamarr Robinson is still developing and will result to scrambling and running when under pressure. In other words, rushing yards will be racked up by many players next season.
Besides, until Robinson can prove he can stretch the field, teams will stack the box and deny running backs a chance to rack up big yards.
Scott's health will be closely monitored and, considering what happened in 2009, will probably be limited to a number of carries.
Will he improve his numbers? Yes.
Will he disappoint Terrapin fans who expect big numbers? Yes.
