OK, a couple nuggets to drop out of the notebook and into the blog.
* It looks like Morgan Green will play some at tailback, and his best chance of getting on the field could be in pass protection.
This accomplishes three things. One, it tosses an extra running back into Maryland’s mix.
Two, it upgrades the Terps’ pass protection, since all signs point to that being a strength for Green.
Three, it reduces the workload for Da’Rel Scott. Even if he does roll up 26 carries again, he might not have to have linebackers charging at him as much. That would help.
* Tony Logan is running the scout team at quarterback. The redshirt freshman wideout spent some time at QB last year as well. This probably doesn’t help his development all that much, but it does give the Terps a little flexibility with Jamarr Robinson needing to prepare as an emergency (No. 3) option the next few weeks.
* Ralph Friedgen likes to look at past notes on what practices don’t work out well, and the first day of classes is typically a stumbling block. “We’re eight-for-eight,” Friedgen grumbled, wondering what sort of issues tie that crazy day together. So Tuesday’s practice was lackluster, but things improved today.
* Dominique Herald traded his garbage man work for a spot back on the field with Maryland after turning in his one-game suspension. The sophomore safety could pop up on the kickoff return and punt block teams on Saturday at Middle Tennessee.
