Friedgen: Kicker Ferrara will be a game-time decision
A few tidbits from Coach Ralph Friedgen coming out of today's press conference in advance of Monday's season-opening game against Navy:
The kicker situation remains fluid. Sophomore Nick Ferrara has a groin pull and has also been inconsistent throughout camp. Punter Travis Baltz has been performing the place kicking duties of late. "We have not resolved it totally yet," Friedgen said. "It's an ongoing process. We have to make it a game-time decision."
Junior cornerback Cameron Chism, who has been recovering from a pulled hamstring, is progressing, Friedgen said, and the coaches are hopeful that he will be able to play.
Friedgen also talked plenty about the confidence he now has in his offensive line -- "I am anticipating that we're going to have a good season because of the offensive line." --- the improved speed on defense and the rivalry he'd like to have with Navy.
I'm headed to practice in a couple hours, more updates as they come.
