The Coin Toss

Maryland screwed up the coin flip last week against Wake Forest. The Terps won the toss and elected to receive, which was not exactly what Coach Ralph Friedgen had in mind. It was overshadowed, and Fridgen forgave all involved because the Terps marched down the field, scored a touchdown and won handily. But Friedgen is not taking any chances tomorrow. He is writing up instructions for players who are involved in the coin toss. He is leaving nothing to chance.

The same thing happened in the Cal game, and we won that won. Maybe the players should look at the instructions and do the opposite!

GREAT NEWS:
Barring a drastic change of heart, it appears unlikely that Dunbar running back Tavon Austin will stay in Maryland for college.
Austin told Rivals.com'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 Rivals.com 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 !
