Friedgen Sticks with Egekeze

Coach Ralph Friedgen will stick with kicker Obi Egekeze to start against Eastern Michigan even though Egekeze has missed all five of his field goal attempts this season. Friedgen said Egekeze kicked very well this week.

Running back Da'Rel Scott (left shoulder) has practiced the last two days and remains questionable for the game. The full injury report will be out in a few hours.

More later...

I'm fine with Ralph sticking with Obi for the first kick, but if he misses it then he has to think of the good of the program rather than worrying about Obi's feelings.

I HOPE he can do this.

i'd go a step further, providing Maryland can perform up to their own level against EMU, instead of EMU's. i'd give him a half to work through if he can. then, we have to look FORWARD.

i will take the opposite view on this one--EMU would be the perfect opportunity for a new kicker to get his feet wet--with the acc schedule coming up this would be a good practice look at a kicker in game situation

I don't know what Obi's problem is, he's about to win the Groza in my season of NCAA09...

But yeah I say give him one more chance. One miss, regardless of distance and let eh kid take a shot. Hopefully he gets that last chance in the 1st quarter...
