Terps’ Durkin wants ex­pla­na­tion from Big Ten on late hits

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Mary­land foot­ball coach DJ Durkin said Mon­day that he is try­ing to get a clar­i­fi­ca­tion from the Big Ten Con­fer­ence about why there was no penalty called on Michi­gan for what he thought was a late hit on quar­ter­back Perry Hills and why the Terps got whis­tled for one later in the game. The hit by Wolver­ines de­fen­sive end Chase Wi­novich in the sec­ond quar­ter of Mary­land’s 59-3 loss to No. 3 Michi­gan in Ann Arbor on Satur­day knocked Hills out of the game with an undis­closed in­jury. Asked if he thought the hit on Hills was late, Durkin said in a tele­con­fer­ence with re­porters, “Yes, as a late hit is de­fined. When you com­pare it to the late hit that was called on us late in the game, I don’t know. We def­i­nitely sent [the film of the two plays] in for them to look at to get an ex­pla­na­tion on. The ball was gone [from Hills’ hand] and he was driven into the ground. I put it in the league for clar­i­fi­ca­tion for ex­actly how they’re call­ing it.” Hills’ sta­tus for Satur­day’s game against No. 6 Ohio State at Mary­land Sta­dium is in ques­tion, though Durkin sounded op­ti­mistic the fifth-year se­nior will be back for the game. It also ap­pears the in­jury is a re­cur­ring prob­lem with his right (throw­ing) shoul­der. “Perry will be able to go and prac­tice, but those are al­ways de­ci­sions [re­gard­ing play­ing] we’ll make as the days go,” Durkin said.” Durkin also said sopho­more run­ning back Ty John­son, who was in­jured in the third quar­ter and re­mained on the side­line the rest of the game, should be ready to face the Buck­eyes.
