QB Robinson: 'If that's the way they want to go with it, that's fine'
Jamarr Robinson, Maryland’s starting quarterback, talked to reporters Tuesday for the first time since the Morgan State game and expressed no frustration about a two-quarterback system in College Park.
“We’re all together,” Robinson said. “I am fine with it. If that’s the way they want to go with it, that’s fine.”
Robinson said he has been spending extra time with offensive coordinator James Franklin on improving in the passing game. Robinson has completed 42.1 percent of his passes in two games and has thrown two interceptions. Coach Ralph Friedgen said he missed some throws against Morgan State.
Franklin said Robinson will start Saturday. Backup Danny O'Brien will play as well. And the coaches will stick with the hot hand.
This will be the toughest environment Robinson has ever played in. Robinson said he feels he is prepared because he played at Florida State last season, but that was a half-filled stadium and didn’t remind me of West Virginia’s hostile crowd at all.
He said he normally walks onto the field during pregame and soaks in the ambience and looks at the crowd before getting into his routine and focusing on the task at hand. “It’s easy to let your emotions get the best of you in a place like that,” Robinson said. “We have to keep our composure.”
Robinson said he prefers playing on the road than at home because “I like when people are against you.”
He will get his wish Saturday.
Is he ready? Anyone concerned about the starting QB position, or no?
