More from Ralph

This will be a quick post because I have to jump on a teleconference with Jeff Tedford in a few minutes. Ralph called California one of the best teams to play at Byrd since he has been here, and that's just not blowing smoke. Cal has averaged 52 points per game this season.

Ralph said Cal uses Jahvid Best much like USC used Reggie Bush in the past. Expect Best to also line up at receiver at times, etc.

Ralph told his players that he didn't do a good job getting them prepared for MTSU. He talked a lot about the breakdowns in communication defensively and the lack of pressure on the quarterback. Will have more on that later.

The loss of Terrell Skinner for the next two to three weeks will hurt. More later, time for Tedford.

Terps need to get out on that field saturday and play with Pride and Passion.

This is a senior laden team. Step up in an adverse situation, have pride in themselves and their school, and play with reckless abandon. No one expects them to win, so WTF, go for it....kinda like Rocky vs. Apollo.

Did anyone have the guts to ask Ralph why the DBs played 10-12 yards off the ball in short yardage situations? It really looks like there is no accountability to the press or public by the coaches.

Paco,

You'll never get tough questions from beat writers. They treasure access to coaches and players over mining for answers to controversial questions.
