Wanted: Delaware's players

Ralph Friedgen spoke very highly of Delaware’s squad this afternoon, even saying, “There are a lot of guys on their team that I would like to have on my team.”

Delaware may not be the East Coast’s Southern Cal, but it is no pushover either. Delaware returns 14 starters and 44 letterwinners from last year’s team that reached the Division I-AA national title game. Granted, quarterback Joe Flacco is no longer around.

That said, Delaware was still ranked among the top 10 in Division I-AA in at least five different polls. Here is some quick reaction from Ralph from earlier today:

“They have quite a few players that were on Division I teams,” Friedgen said. “I have been very impressed with their offensive line and defensive line. They are very athletic in the secondary. They have nine starters back on defense. One question mark is the quarterback situation.”

Ohio State transfer Robby Schoenhoft and redshirt freshman Lou Ritacco are competing for the starting quarterback job, and Coach K.C. Keeler has been quite coy about when and how he will name a starter.

Maryland will finish with a 4-8 record (good for last place in the ACC - even behind Duke)

It was gratifying to hear that, Maryland is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

"There are a lot of guys on their team that I'd like to have on my team." Gee, Ralph, that must make the guys who are on your team feel good.

If this guy isn't on the hot seat, particularly after he squeaks by DE and MTSU, then I don't know who should be.

He graduates his kids, which I respect, but his recruiting and on-field product are hurting the program. He has an undersized "D" line, undersized RBs, underachieving starting QB, and an overmatched defensive coordinator.

Its good to see that Maryland is still recruiting Tavon Austin as he will fit perfectly in their scheme. Also will be cool to seem him represnt his state instead of some other place.
