Steffy Update

Ralph Friedgen had an update on Jordan Steffy last night. The fifth-year senior who fractured his thumb in the season opener against Delaware is progressing and is expected to make the trip to Virginia Tech for the Nov. 6 game. Friedgen said Steffy has some good days in practice but also some so-so days in which he has some trouble gripping the ball. It remains to be seen whether Steffy can approach 100 percent at any point this season, but perhaps he may be able to help Maryland on occasion if need be. The other thing is, starter Chris Turner has played so well lately, why would there be any need to take him out, even for a few plays? Josh Portis didn’t even play in the last game against North Carolina State.

I never saw what the coaches saw in Steffy but it is a shame he has been injured so often. Turner has been playing very well and I hope Coach Friedgen doesn't feel compelled to use Steffy just because he's available.

If Ralph is seriously considering playing Steffy he can kiss his fan base support goodbye.

I'de still like to see a little more Portis. I think he is especially useful whenthe Terps have a lead. Spread it out and run is a nice contrast to pack it in and run.

Naming Steffy the starter cost Maryland the MTSU game. Please just offer him a coaching position and be done with this.
