Football quick hits

Ralph Friedgen

\ But there just wasn’t a whole lot of interest to come out of yesterday on the football front.\

\ Jordan Steffy has had the better week of practice, and Friedgen said he’d have to look at tape to decide whether Steffy or Chris Turner would start at quarterback against Boston College. Neither of them played particularly well yesterday, for what that matters.\

\ It doesn’t sound like there will be any surprises returning from any ailments this week. Friedgen hasn’t exactly had much pep the last few weeks, but you can almost imagine a storm cloud fixing itself right over his head when he talks about injuries.\

\ My biggest question for tonight is about as harrowing a what-if as Ralph has faced all year. If Scott Burley and Bruce Campbell can’t play – and since neither practiced beyond a walkthrough yesterday, it doesn’t look good – and Paul Pinegar gets nicked up, who goes in at left tackle.\

\ The essence of that question is: Who is Maryland’s fourth-string left tackle? That’s enough for any coach to wonder why raindrops keep falling on his head.\

\ – Patrick Stevens
