Moten Takes Charge in Last Week's Players-Only Meeting

What’s the one thing that usually follows adversity? A players-only meeting. It happens all the time. And it happened Wednesday at the Gossett Team House. Players said junior linebacker Adrian Moten, who never hesitates to share his opinion or confront players, was the ringleaders.

The meeting got so spirited that Coach Ralph Friedgen approached because he was supposed to have a general team meeting afterward. But Friedgen heard and was told that it was getting a little loud in the meeting, and that players were expressing how they felt in blunt terms. In other words, progress was being made, at least that’s what Friedgen felt.

Friedgen let the players finish their meeting. Later, he met with the Terrapins Council to discuss any issues that arose. The biggest one? Players wanted to wear black jerseys and red pants for the game. A new look might make for a new outcome. It couldn’t hurt.

“I’ll let you wear that if it will help us win,” Friedgen remembered telling players.

Hopefully, after THIS week's game, there were more "blunt terms" thown in Anthony Wiseman's direction. It seems like every time an opposing team scores a big play, #6 is right there...just a few too many steps behind whatever is going on. He could have made a tackle on Spiller on the big KO return, and tried to strip the ball instead. Kid drives me INSANE!

I hated the black on red look. I think the Terp black jerseys look best on the white...classy, like an NFL look.

I thought the red and black looked funny, but it's nice to know the idea came from the players. Thanks for this story.

Are you kidding? The black over red uniforms are awesome!!! I would also like to see red over black. Just stay away from the all white, those are the worst.
