Football Friday

We're less than 28 hours away from kickoff of the Maryland-Wake Forest game, and there's plenty of ACC football to discuss. In today's Post, Eric Prisbell takes a look at how in the days leading up to this key Atlantic Division tilt, all eyes are on the health of a kicker; the Winston-Salem Journal looks at the person who would take over if that kicker isn't well enough to play.

Steve Yanda explores an issue near and dear to Terrapins fans' hearts: how an offense gets the ball in the hands of its most dynamic playmaker. It turns out it's not always so easy when that player is a wide receiver, a familiar refrain to the Terps faithful.

Around the area, Navy's defense and Virginia's quarterback prepare to lead their teams in home games against ranked opponents. And Virginia Tech prepares to travel to the ACC school that has had the most recent success against the Hokies.

Around the country, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Tony Barnhart calls for a one-point Wake victory; Rivals calls Da'Rel Scott vs. Wake's run defense the ACC's best matchup of the weekend; and the Sporting News says tomorrow's game matches two of the 10 worst nicknames in college football (a premise with which I wholeheartedly disagree, incidentally).

Check back here later for the ever-popular predictions post, and we'll also share with you Prisbell's story on Terps defensive coordinator Chris Cosh, which will appear in tomorrow's newspaper.

Did you notice in that Rivals article that they have the Fridge on the "hottest" seat?

Franklins excuses are pathetic. Treat him just like Maclin. He should get at least one screen pass each half. Then make him the primary read on however many plays. The funny thing about constantly throwing screen passes is it forces the defense to come up and play you tighter which opens things up down the field. Yeah it isn't like ringer but Missouri has found a way to get Maclin the ball ten times a game so there is no reason MD can't find a way to get Heyward Bey the ball 5.

I loved this result.

Maryland's - Defensive and Offensive lines and Linebacking corp are the worst in College Football.

I have seen harder hitting teams in powder puff leagues.

Maryland's recruiting efforts are going to take a major hit with this result.


Wake Forest -- 34
Maryland -- 10

Maryland will finish with a 5-7 record.

I am happy that Maryland is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

Jelani Jenkins, Travis Hawkins and Isaac Holmes will be signing with the University of Florida.

Go Tar Heels !
