Thursday Practices? Not So Good
Today is Thursday, and Maryland typically does not practice well on Thursdays. Coach Ralph Friedgen is getting fed up with that habit. For the season’s first month, Friedgen has had players go light on Thursday in hopes of avoiding injury and fatigue. But he said he may go back to tougher Thursday practices if he has to.
“I haven’t been pleased with Thursdays,” Friedgen said. “If we don’t start practicing on Thursday, we are going to be in full gear on Thursday. I don’t really care. I really don’t like going out in shells. I try to save them a little bit. We go out in shells on Monday and practice as a much faster pace than Thursday. I don’t think we should. We should practice at a fast pace and execute. Quick whistles but sharp and crisp. They don’t seem to get that. They think Thursday is a time to relax. No time to relax. The offseason is when you can relax.”
Is Friedgen just being a grouch? Or does he have a legit point with these Thursday practices? The team had a poor Thursday practice and Friday walk-through prior to the MTSU debacle.
