Lots of morsels from tonight to get to, including some scrimmage notes that are already on the Twitter.

(So, yes, go ahead and check that feed when you get the chance).


Anyway, the most notable bit on longer-reaching news is defensive tackle Joe Vellano‘s stress fracture —- and the surgery he underwent today.

Coach Ralph Friedgen said he expects Vellano back for the Clemson game —- which is Oct. 3.

That cuts a little more from Maryland’s depth on the defensive line, and I’ll have more on that a bit later.

But one thing’s for certain —- there’s a little extra pressure on Ian Davidson and Zach Kerr than there was before Vellano went down.
