Areas of Concern Along the O-Line
From an offensive standpoint, Maryland has two areas of concern heading into the week of preparation for the opener against California.
The tight ends have been a disappointment throughout camp.
“That’s one position where we’re not as strong as we need to be,” Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said.
Friedgen said Tommy Galt would probably start if a game were played today. But Lansford Watson and Matt Furstenburg are expected to play, as well.
The other problem? Offensive line. No surprise there. Paul Pinegar and R.J. Dill are both expected to play at right tackle. Andrew Gonnella is expected to start at one guard position, but the other one remains up for grabs.
“The o-line is going to be interesting,” offensive coordinator James Franklin said. “It will probably be interesting all year long. It’s a challenge. Finally, we have the right people in the right spots to give us a chance.”
