OAKLAND, Calif. —- For understandable reasons, the blog has been a little quiet today.
And really, at this stage, there’s only so much left to write anyway.
After all, since Ralph Friedgen‘s team last stepped onto a field, the following has happened:
* Darrius Heyward-Bey turned pro
* Don Brown was hired as defensive coordinator; Charles Bankins soon followed as special teams coach
* The Terps hauled in a recruiting class of 26 players
* James Franklin was designated as Friedgen’s successor
* LaQuan Williams lost and regained his eligibility in a span of a week
* Quintin McCree caught three touchdowns in the spring game
* Friedgen’s diet permitted him to lose 100 pounds
* Dion Armstrong was, effectively, an academic casualty
* Adrian Cannon emerged as the most likely candidate to become Chris Turner’s favorite target
* The Terps’ kicking derby was never settled (publicly, anyway)
In short? How about they play a game already.
T-minus 26 hours and change. Thank goodness.
