Friedgen's Message to Players
No more creative motivational tactics by Ralph Friedgen. After two months of trying to get this squad to be consistent, the Terps remain in contention for the Atlantic Division title, and Friedgen simply laid out the truth for his players:
“The only thing we assured ourselves of is mediocrity,” he told them. “We have four games against four tough teams left. Four very big games.”
Given the wild swings Maryland has shown this season, they could win or lose any of the four games by virtually any score. Losing to Virginia Tech wouldn’t hurt as much as losing to Florida State, which is tied with Maryland for first in the Atlantic Division. The game against FSU on Nov. 22 at Byrd Stadium is shaping up to be the biggest of the season.
Back to Friedgen’s message, he couldn’t have been more truthful to his players. The worst they can be is mediocre; the best they can be is ACC champions.
