I wrote about the depth at wide receiver in Friday’s paper, but Coach Ralph Friedgen delved a little more into the subject Thursday evening. It’s interesting. There is depth, and there is little separation among the top 10 wide receivers...

Maryland conducted an abbreviated practice Tuesday night because of intermittent lightning and the general threat of storms in the area. Coach Ralph Friedgen kept pushing practice back, but the weather never cooperated. Access to players and coaches was canceled, so...

Costa Puts OL Responsibility on His Shoulders

There is no question that senior center Phil Costa is the quarterback of the offensive line. And if you saw how the line performed in Saturday’s scrimmage – ugh – without Costa, who sat for precautionary reasons because of his...

Bowen 'Really Mad' at Low Expectations for OL

I wanted to post some of my recent interview with offensive lineman Tyler Bowen because I could not get everything into my story today about the offensive line. Bowen, a 6-foot-7, 305-pound sophomore, has been competing against Paul Pinegar and...

While watching the first five periods of practice the other day, I chatted with a few writers about which Maryland games will be the most difficult and which will be the least difficult. So here is my attempt to rank...

Defense Way Ahead of Offense

One conclusion Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen was certain about after reviewing tape of Saturday’s 111-play Saturday scrimmage was that the defense is miles ahead of the offense entering the second week of camp. Of the 14 sacks made by the...

Barbour Maintains Lead in Kicker Battle

The biggest thing Coach Ralph Friedgen wanted out of Saturday’s first scrimmage – in addition to no injuries – was a sense that there might be an under-the-radar guy who could help. Immediately after the scrimmage, Friedgen was not sure...
