Terps Injuries and the Secondary

Maryland’s defense has struggled all season. One of the many reasons why is because the secondary is banged up, and that was evident Saturday night. Cornerback Kevin Barnes said he had a helmet-to-helmet hit that left him woozy. And he said that Anthony Wiseman also got nicked up. Why didn’t they come out of the game?

“We have no depth,” Barnes said.

Coach Ralph Friedgen made clear that he is more worried about getting better than getting healthy right now. That’s what he said. He had planned to give the team a day of Tuesday, now he said he will hold a team meeting at 2:30 on Tuesday.

Would you please Ralph and the staff why they burned Chism's redshirt if he is not ready. Why not put the kid in the game and let him learn, you already burned his redshirt. I dont get it.

Correction. Maryland’s defense has struggled for the past three seasons.

There should not be any shortage of players for MD's secondary since all you have to do to play the position at MD is to either run with your back to the play(and have no idea where the ball is)or when facing the play, just "attempt" to tackle the opposing playing after "letting" him catch the ball.
HORRENDOUS, PATHETIC, EMBARRASSING and JUST AWFUL...excuses, excuses and more excuses...
