Friedgen Wants to Cut Down on Penalties

During today’s news conference, I asked a few people about specific penalties in the James Madison game because there was some uncertainty in the hours after Maryland’s 38-35 overtime victory.

Specifically, in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, Maryland’s QB Chris Turner completed a four-yard pass to wide receiver Torrey Smith. A flag was thrown near the James Madison sideline.

The penalty, a 15-yard personal foul, was not on Smith but rather on tight end Tommy Galt.

It was a key call because it put Maryland in a second-and-21 situation from its own 36. The drive stalled, and the game went to overtime.

Coach Ralph Friedgen said after the game that he would not tolerate inopportune penalties, and he said Tuesday that he has addressed the issue with his team.

Perhaps Galt was driven to rage by the band's disruptive noise...

According to some well-placed Terrapin fans, almost every one of the penalties could be attributed to the nefarious intent of none other than the Maryland Marching Band!
