Friedgen and Homecoming Traditions

It's homecoming weekend in College Park, so let's take a look at the record of Coach Ralph Friedgen (class of 1970) in homecoming games. Friedgen has gone 5-2 in homecoming games (the Terps had lost nine of their previous 15 homecoming games before Friedgen's arrival). Here's a breakdown:

2007.....Virginia.................L, 18-17
2006.....N.C. State.............W, 26-20
2005.....Virginia.................W, 45-33
2004.....N.C. State.............L, 13-3
2003.....North Carolina......W, 59-21
2002.....N.C. State.............W, 24-21
2001.....Duke.....................W, 59-17

I imagine there's a fair number of alumni who check in with this blog, so do you regularly make an effort to get back to College Park on homecoming weekend? Do you have any homecoming traditions you look forward to? Please share.

I made it back for last year's Virginia game (my first as an alumnus) but the weekend trips from Birmingham, AL are taxing.

NC State -- 27
Maryland - 10

Maryland will finish with a 5-7 record.

I am extremely happy that Penn State is ranked number 3 in the country - and very soon to be ranked number one --- this will definitely hurt Maryland's recruiting - thank god !!!

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

Barring a drastic change of heart, it appears unlikely that Dunbar running back Tavon Austin will stay in Maryland for college.
Austin told's Mike Farrell this week that he’s narrowed his list of schools to three.
“I haven’t taken any official visits lately,” Austin explained. “I went to West Virginia a little while back and that went pretty good. I’m not going to take all five of them.
“I’m taking an official to UNC on November 7, and I think I might make my decision after that. I’m looking at West Virginia, North Carolina and Michigan right now, but I might not make it to Michigan. I’d say West Virginia is leading by a little bit.”
• In Mike Farrell’s Weekly Whispers column, the analyst says that Hawkins and his Quince Orchard teammate, defensive end Jason Ankrah, have been impressed with Penn State’s 8-0 start.
Speaking of Penn State, numerous prospects who didn’t have interest in the Nittany Lions suddenly are interested after the team’s awesome start. While Gaithersburg (Md.) Quince Orchard defensive end Jason Ankrah has always loved Penn State, teammate Travis Hawkins - a cornerback - once again is showing a lot of interest.
* Jelani Jenkins and Isaac Holmes will be signing with the University of Florida.

Go Tar Heels !
