A topic over the last two days in discussions with Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen is the state of the Virginia Tech quarterbacks.

Based on about 20 minutes of action, he’s concluded Cory Holt is sort of a combination of Tyrod Taylor and Sean Glennon —- or at least a mix of their traits.


Of course, it’s tough to say for certain, since Holt played quarterback for the first time all season on Saturday. And Turtle Sports Report’s Seth Hoffman asked if that was the only tape the Terps had of the fifth-year senior.

“Yeah,” Friedgen said. “I don’t think he’s played in any other games.”

This was the time for a case of know-it-allism to come into play. So I mentioned he’d last played QB more than a year ago against Duke.

“I might pull that one out,” Friedgen said. “What other games did he play? Do my research for me so I don’t have to go through all those films.”

I seem to do a lot of other folks’ research, so I figured it would be fun to play along.

“Isn’t that what I’m here for?” I replied. “Let me shoot you an e-mail.”

Friedgen, now in his full, mischievous grin, glared at me for a few seconds before speaking up again.

“You are a Maryland grad aren’t you?” the big fella said. “Once a Terp, always a Terp.”

I wouldn’t go that far.

Friedgen won’t be getting that e-mail, of course. But he could look here to see Holt’s game-by-game performance at quarterback throughout his career.

Then again, Ralph says he doesn’t read anything in the media. So I guess he’ll just have to miss out (stats in completions-attempts-yards).
