So, what will everyone write about once Ralph Friedgen names a starting quarterback?

That is really the great mystery of Maryland‘s camp. Well, other than which QB will throw a TD in a scrimmage first (which did not happen on Saturday, regardless of what you might read elsewhere).


The spot where the tediousness of the quarterback decision shifts from curious ink-stained wretches to the Fridge is on Monday morning. He says he wants to make a decision by Saturday, but it’s reasonable to believe he might “need to look at the tape” or “inform his team of the decision” sometime late Saturday or Sunday.

But after that, it begins to look suspiciously like a flattened raccoon in the middle of the road: Stretched out much farther than anyone ever wanted to see.

In the headlines is the take of the Washington Post’s Eric Prisbell on quarterback Josh Portis.

The Baltimore Sun‘s Don Markus takes a look at the possibility of a two- or three-quarterback system.

David Steele of the Baltimore Sun considers the similarities at quarterbacl between Maryland and the Baltimore Ravens.
