Thursday links

Thursday is here. As I've said before, that means the weekend has arrived on college campuses across the country. So eat, drink and be merry.

There is certainly optimism in College Park. Hmm. Optimism isn't the right word. Judging by Coach Ralph Freidgen's statement Wednesday that the Terrapins "could easily be 7-1 or 6-2," perhaps delusional might be the better adjective.

On Aug. 25, Maryland announced that Saturday's game against Virginia Tech was sold out. Well, on second thought, it's actually not. On Wednesday, the school sent out an e-mail message saying that student tickets, and student guest tickets at $25, were still available.

With Maryland unsettled at quarterback, Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times takes a look at at the debuts of each of the last 10 quarterbacks to make their first career start for the Terrapins, dating to 1996.

I'm a day late on this, but it's never a bad time to honor the troops. Here's Steve Yanda's Veteran's Day salute to a Maryland basketball family member. It's a really great piece, so give it a read.

And finally, Bud Foster told me on Tuesday night that he would be interested in the Memphis head coaching opening. So in a nod to the Hokies' defensive coordinator, I figured I'd dust off a video that became popular over the summer: Foster surfing at Claytor Lake, near Blacksburg. Pretty cool, right? Not bad for one of the nation's top defensive coordinators.
