Because people love reading about quarterbacks, here are a couple snippets from Ralph Friedgen yesterday on junior quarterback Josh Portis.

First, on his overall use:


“I think we have to do more with him, either him throwing it or him handing it off,” Friedgen said.

There’s more to come on quarterback continuity later —- as in how Maryland might be smart to try to keep that position as stable as possible if a lot of other things are in flux.

Back to Portis. He looked like a magnet for tacklers on his failed fourth-down scamper in the fourth quarter. And maybe there’s a reason why.

“Really, he kind of just didn’t go through with the whole play,” Friedgen said. “They blitzed a little bit. It was picked up, and if he kept up he probably would have made it. He panicked and went the other way.”
