Just got home after a whirlwind of activity over the last five hours or so.

The highlights of the day.


Gary being Gary, Greivis being Greivis and Ralph Friedgen finding himself in an oddly morbid mood.

But first some nuts and bolts from football.

Ralph said we’d see more of Jack Griffin on the offensive line this week, which really isn’t a huge surprise. Maryland needs to find something —- anything —- to jump-start the line. No reason not to try to use the guy Friedgen calls “a sixth starter” to get things rolling.

Toss in Paul Pinegar‘s move to left tackle and walk-on Andrew Gonnella’s progress at left guard, and here’s a look at a two-deep for the offensive line (from left to right)

First team
Bruce Campbell-Jaimie Thomas-Edwin Williams-Phil Costa-Scott Burley

Second team
Paul Pinegar-Andrew Gonnella-Danny Edwards-Jack Griffin-Dane Randolph

Phil Costa can still back up at left guard and center, so he would presumably spell Thomas or Williams if need be.

That’s the big stuff at this point. Ralph said tailback Da’Rel Scott still will have another three weeks of practice noncontact work, but that he’s entirely got his burst back. Maryland could certainly use it against a Wake Forest team that is exceptional in defending the pass.

More —- lots more —- to come throughout the evening.
