Friedgen: 'There Are a Lot of People Down on Us'
Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen didn’t seem exactly overjoyed on today’s ACC teleconference. Who could blame him? There was a lot of talk about turnovers and penalties. Once again, here is what Ralph has done in practice to try to change things up:
1) Coaches are now counting turnovers in practice. The entire offense performs 10 up-downs for each turnover.
2) Officials were brought in for Tuesday’s practice and will be back today. They will call penalties.
3) Maryland will run a specific number of plays during each team period, and those plays will be repeated until they are done correctly.
“This (penalties and turnovers) have to stop if we are going to be successful,” Friedgen said.
Should all this have been done from the start of the season?
Friedgen said his team had a team meeting on Tuesday.
“There are a lot of people down on us right now,” Friedgen said. “But I don’t think our players are.”
