Friedgen on Swine Flu

Every once in a while, someone will ask a question at Tuesday’s news conference that is a little bit different. And that’s a good thing, because it breaks up the monotony of everything, and I’m not a big fan of monotony.

So a television reporter asked Coach Ralph Friedgen about swine flu on campus.

Friedgen said one of his players is sick. I’ve learned it is not a prominent player. That player has been isolated just in case, but Friedgen does not know whether the player has swine flu.

Friedgen is very concerned, in general, about sickness spreading among teammates because players often share suites together on campus. Friedgen and coaches have told players to wash hands frequently and not to share towels, utensils or water bottles.

“You worry about how devastating it is if it gets contagious on our team and our coaching staff,” Friedgen said.

Ralph's found another reason for why the Terps can't emerge from mediocrity - H1N1, ah hah!
