In basically his last free day for the season , Coach Ralph Friedgen commented on scheduling future rivalry games for the Terps. “Some of the proposals — such as emphasizing West Virginia and other “rivalry” opponents — are designed to appeal largely to fans.
“When I was at Georgia Tech, we played Georgia and I loved that game. That’s what gets the crowds going,” Friedgen said. “Anytime you play a border state, there’s going to be a rivalry and that’s good for your program. Virginia is always a big game, but their rivalry is with Virginia Tech.”
Maryland and West Virginia next meet in 2010. Friedgen said he’d also like to schedule more games with Navy, whom the Terrapins last played in 2005 and don’t meet again until 2010. The most recent hurdle with Navy, a debate over the 2007 Bowl game selection has been cleared and it’s time to make Maryland Navy a yearly event.
