Poll: What position most concerns you?

We’re less than two weeks away from Maryland’s season-opener against Navy. Media access starts up again this evening after a dark day yesterday. There are plenty of positions/units to keep an eye on.

The offensive line, the biggest problem last season, is something to watch. Coaches are encouraged by the development of the starters. The inexperience of the backups is still an issue.

The quarterbacks all have potential. Overall, Coach Ralph Friedgen has been pleased with the leadership and general play of starter Jamarr Robinson. But he occasionally forces passes into coverage.

The injuries at tight end are getting ridiculous. It had looked like a position of strength. Now three guys --- Lansford Watson, Will Yeatman and Devonte Campbell --- will miss the opener.

Kicker is the position that has been on Friedgen’s mind the most. Nick Ferrara, who had a strong freshman season, has been inconsistent. Punter Travis Baltz got some work at place kicker in Monday’s scrimmage. He didn’t fare much better, Friedgen said.

Or is there another position/unit that concerns you most?

My vote was for "other" because it would be for Head Coach.

If "Other" can also mean "All of the Above" then that is my vote.

D-line and O-line are my biggest concerns. You can't do anything without strong lines.
