Sunday Chat With Friedgen
Just finished with Ralph Friedgen’s Sunday teleconference. Cornerback Kevin Barnes, who injured his shoulder in the first half of Saturday’s game, will undergo an MRI exam tomorrow. “He was pretty sore this morning,” Friedgen said. “I don’t know where he is at.”
Friedgen said no one else who played Saturday is in jeopardy of missing the North Carolina State game. Friedgen said linebacker Adrian Moten (torn ligaments in wrist) is 50/50 for the Virginia Tech game on Nov. 6. “They took a screw out [of his wrist] last Wednesday,” Friedgen said. “He still has another one in there. All the bones are set and healing.”
Friedgen said Saturday was the best Maryland had played all season. He said the Terps played with more energy, played like they had been practicing and committed fewer mental errors. When asked if he had a better feel for whether the team will continue to play like that, he said: “No, not really.”
Friedgen said Darrius Heyward-Bey, who had a career-high 11 receptions, made a great catch on that 41-yard juggling reception in the first half. “I thought that was a big play in the game,” Friedgen said.
Regarding the sparse attendance, Friedgen said: “There were a lot of empty seats in the upper deck. Right now we’re tied for first and I’m hoping our fans will come out and support us and give us a home field advantage.”
