I was talking with Gary Attman, a big time Maryland supporter and booster, last night when he brought up a great point to me. Ozzie took a lot of heat for passing on the likes of DHB, Crabtree, Hakeem Nicks, etc. Though the Ravens need a deep threat, Ozzie let all of these speedsters go and concentrated on the Offensive line. Exhibition season means very little but the quality of protection for #5 allowed him to destroy every defense he faced, Now let’s relate this to Cal’s crushing win over Maryland. The Terps are loaded at the skill positions but frightfully light on the offensive line. For the Terps to move to the next level, they need to concentrate on the 2 lines.
Now that the disappointment of Saturday’s loss is wearing off, let’s remember the Terps are 0-1 and would have been 0-1 had we lost by 3. The real concern today is the health of left tackle –Bruce Campbell who suffered a turf toe injury.Ralph will address the line needs and comment on it at his Tuesday Press conference.
