Ralph Friedgen

\ I was right.\


\ “Where’ve you been,” Friedgen asked, referring to my absence yesterday from the daily media session. “Did you have a hot date last night?”\

\ “If only,” I replied before describing a staff shortage that left me covering the Washington Mystics at Verizon Center.\

\ “Who are they?” Friedgen asked in all seriousness.\

\ Anyway, Morgan Green is still out, and Ralph finally revealed it was a hamstring ailment of some kind. Chase Bullock has also been out a few days, but he’s likely to be back sometime soon.\

\ As for yesterday’s mock scrimmage, here are the quarterback numbers:\

\ Jordan Steffy: 18-23, 174 yards, INT\ Josh Portis: 7-10, 40 yards\ Chris Turner: 5-10, 47 yards\ Jamarr Robinson: 2-5, 2 INT\

\ At least Robinson had a good completion percentage.\

\ Meanwhile Obi Egekeze made all four field goal attempts. It would be no shock if a kicker is announced along with a quarterback tomorrow.\

\ As the mining the bottom of the depth chart, Ralph said Haroon Brown is making a push for a backup fullback spot. Brown, you might remember, was a last-second addition to the Terps’ recruiting class last February.\

\ More in a bit …\
