Sophmores Cameron Chism and Trenton Hughes. Are either as good as Carroll? No. Is Ralph Friedgen a little worried? Sure sounds like it. After reviewing film of MTS, he had this to say:
"It would be easier with Nolan..."
Some nice quotes from the QB and DB.
"He's one of the premier corners in the ACC. To lose a senior, one of your best players, that's always tough. It's gut-check time. We need guys to step up. Nolan's not coming back. We don't have a time machine around here." - Turner
"Nobody's going to cry for you," defensive coordinator Don Brown said. "Next Saturday when the game starts and they blow the whistle, nobody cares. So I don't even worry about it."
Every week, Terps players and coaches seem to be saying the right things. Unfortunately, words alone don't get you victories.
3:30, on ESPN360. Ugh. - bbroman
Hey, it's a slow news day and I like soccer. After dropping their first game against the then #19 UCLA Bruins, the Terps rebounded by beating then #8 Cal, 2-1. Maryland's #7 ranking doesn't include their 2-0 win over BC in the ACC Opener last friday, so expect a small boost for Sasho's squad when the new NSCAA/adidas poll is released.
Among the honorees this year is longtime voice of the Terps, Johnny Holliday. I'll forever have Holliday's voice etched in my mind from this night (2:06 is what I'm talking about)...
Sucks, but never really expected much from it. - bbroman
Most interesting note? That Maryland will soon be visiting Alex Kirk. - bbroman
