The score was not indicative of the onesidedness of the game. That being said Chris Turner had a decent game tossing 3 TDs of his own. Some observations:
Caleb Porzel burned his redshirt as expected but was ineffective in 3 rushing attempts. Have no fear this kid will be great.
The return of Bruce Campbell to the lineup is crucial to this team. There is just no running game or pass protection without him.
Ralph had this to say post game:”We obviously played poorly in the first half and they (Wake Forest) played really well. You have to give it to our kids. They hung in there and kept fighting. If we had scored that touchdown with eight minutes to go, who knows what would have happened. We blew a lot of coverages in the first half and didn’t get a whole lot going offensively. Other than the long kick return, I wasn’t real pleased with our special teams. We then played better in the second half but it was too little too late.”
Wake gained over 500 yds despite playing close to the vest in the 2nd half.
The Terps are now 2-4 and 1-1 in the conference.
Our next 2 opponents Dke and UVA were both easy winners today—Duke by 21 over NC State and UVA 47-7 over IU.
Alex Wujciak led the team again with 11 tackles.
