A few notable items from Maryland coach Randy Edsall’s teleconference Thursday (indeed, his last Thursday teleconference with reporters this season) …

* Wideout Tony Logan isn’t just the emergency quarterback, he’s Maryland’s No. 2 quarterback this week.

The Terrapins are down to one scholarship quarterback (C.J. Brown), so at least there won’t be a dreaded game-time decision when Maryland visits Wake Forest on Saturday. But Logan will be the backup option in case Brown goes down, with walk-on Troy Jones the No. 3 QB.

“He’s done some good things there in terms of what we’ve asked him to do,” Edsall said of Logan. “We’ll have a package for him that he’ll be able to go in and handle. … Hopefully, he doesn’t have to.”

If Logan is forced into action, that would mean Brown is injured, so it’s plenty understandable for Edsall to fervently wish for that scenario not to unfold.

One good thing in play: Logan at least wears a number (No. 1) traditionally in the numerical range for a quarterback to don.

* Maryland is bringing only 60 players to Wake Forest. The Terps traveled about 65 guys to road games last month at Georgia Tech and Florida State. But injuries have eroded that group even further.

“In all my years of coaching, I can’t remember this small of a number,” Edsall said.
