Secondary coach Kevin Lempa said Chism was closer to playing in Maryland’s dime package. But down two cornerbacks already, the Terps might need one of their reserves to develop quicker than anticipated.
“We just need more from the other guys who aren’t as experienced,” Friedgen said. “They need to grow up real fast.”
Note — Friedgen said right tackle Dane Randolph (ankle) was ailing during warmups Saturday. Randolph, who did participate on the field goal unit against Wake Forest, is expected to take snaps as a reserve this week.
