Friedgen wants QB Robinson to run a different offense
Wanted to offer a quick update from Coach Ralph Friedgen’s press conference this afternoon:
I was struck by the small contingent of media here today. Only about a dozen by my count.
Expect Danny O’Brien to continue to start at quarterback. Friedgen said he is hopeful that backup Jamarr Robinson can run a different offense to give opponents even more to prepare for during the week.
Travis Baltz beat out Nick Ferrara for place kicking duties again on Monday. Friedgen has wanted Ferrara to win back the job, but he has struggled in practice.
Defensive lineman A.J. Francis called this Saturday’s game at Boston College a must-win game. Francis also said he was surprised how “irate” Friedgen was after the loss to Clemson.
Upon further review, Friedgen did not think his team was emotionally flat to start the second half.
Friedgen choked up twice during the news conference while talking about the incremental progress of his team over the past 18 games.
Friedgen will have officials at practice Tuesday and Wednesday to the team can continue to work on reducing penalties, a major source of frustration for Friedgen.
Regarding snapping the 10-game road losing streak and winning on the road, Friedgen said, “It’s about time we start maturing and grow up and are able to do that.”
