Will Kasim Hill face adversity?
It’s been about as a perfect a start for Hill through his first two games.
Hill is completing 84.2 percent of his passes and he’s also displayed the ability to run the football when he needs to. However, aside from that 3rd-and-19 conversion against Texas, the former St. John’s College (D.C.) star hasn’t faced a ton of adversity.
The Maryland signal caller has yet to throw an interception or fumble the ball. Obviously, that’s not a bad thing in the slightest.
At some point against Central Florida, it might not be the worst thing if Hill faces some adversity. Maybe Hill coughs it up or gets sacked on a big third down play.
How is Hill going to respond when he suffers a negative play? Will he put it out of his mind immediately or will he dwell on it and struggle after it’s over?
Hill began his career by helping the Terps stay on the winning side of things against Texas. Maryland only led 37-34 when he Tyrrell Pigrome suffered a torn ACL and was forced from the game.
Maryland’s offense hasn’t changed since that point. Hill is more of a traditional pocket passer, but the former four-star recruit has a similar skill set.
If he faces some adversity this week, it might better prepare the young quarterback for the tougher slate of Big Ten games that will occur later this season.
