A Year Later, Different Teams
Maryland did not display its finest offensive effort in last season’s 16-13 loss at North Carolina. The Terrapins had more first downs than the Tar Heels (18-15), but they trailed 16-3 after North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates hooked up with receiver Hakeem Nicks on a 30-yard score. Maryland had trouble running the ball for much of the day. Here is what Ralph Friedgen remembers:
“I look at it offensively,” he said. “Cory Jackson had a big cast on his hand. Both Bruce Campbell and Scott Burley were limping around. On defense, Erin Henderson got hurt and came out. We were like the walking wounded. I look at the game and we played hard, but we did not play as well at the other positions. Hopefully we have grown. I think they have improved quite a bit and are playing very well right now.”
