Scott's New Best Friend: a Football
If you were one of the many students this week on campus who crossed paths with Da’Rel Scott, you saw him carrying a football. Scott carried a football to class, carried it to practice, carried it everywhere he went.
After fumbling three times the past two weeks, Scott wants to make extra sure he will be able to hold on to the football Saturday against Clemson.
“I am doing everything I can,” Friedgen said about stopping turnovers. “I am pulling out all the stops.”
Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said the idea came from a movie. A similar cure for fumbles was detailed in the “The Program,” a 1993 football movie starring James Caan and Halle Berry.
Maryland has 13 turnovers this season. Only one division I-A team, Miami (Ohio), has more.
“I get very upset with turnovers,” Friedgen said. “I have been trying to keep my poise, but it’s wearing me out, it really is. My staff is tired of hearing it. I know the players are tired of hearing it. I am tired of seeing it, too. I would just like to give ourselves a chance. We have not done that the past two games.”
