COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Now that C.J. Brown has gotten over the euphoria of playing football again, his focus is on becoming a better quarterback.

It's an understandable quest, except Brown left very little room for improvement after leading Maryland to a 43-10 victory over Florida International last week.

Returning from a knee injury that forced him to miss all last season, the fifth- year senior completed 20 of 23 passes for three touchdowns and ran for 105 yards and two scores.

Still, Brown believes there are still a few flaws that need to be corrected before Maryland (1-0) hosts Old Dominion (0-1) on Saturday.

He wants to read the opposing defense better and improve his clock management. He will have the opportunity to do so against ODU, which yielded 52 points to East Carolina.
