Egekeze's Margin for Error

As I wrote yesterday on Terrapins Insider, Ralph Friedgen will stick with struggling kicker Obi Egekeze to start against Eastern Michigan. But the key word is start. Here is exactly what Friedgen says, so it is clear that Egekeze also needs to perform:

“We’ll start with Obi, and see what happens. It’s close. We’ll see what he does. He has kicked very well this week. To me, he was trying to guide the ball through. I said, ‘Just kick the damn thing.’ He has been doing that, and it doesn’t seem to have as big of a hook as it had. There were spells where he has had inconsistency, but he has always come out of it. The worst kick he has had so far was Saturday. That, he should have made. He missed by three feet. We ran the clock down on him a little, but he still should have made it. Then he comes back and makes a 52-yarder. Easy. But the other guy (Nick Wallace) is kicking well, too. And competition is a wonderful thing.”

So my question is: How big is Egekeze's margin for error? If he misses one kick, is it Nick Wallace time?

One kick and then you have to give Wallace a shot.
