ENEMY LINES
An opposing coach's view

Against the Terrapins, job No. 1 is to handle Henderson

"You scheme to try and stop E.J. Henderson. He's accounted for in your protection. But he's likely to run right over your blocker. A lot of their blitzes are set up for linebackers Leon Joe and Henderson.... Tailback Bruce Perry is a physical runner who can also make you miss. The question is at quarterback, but coach Ralph Friedgen did a great job getting Shaun Hill to manage the game last year. It was phenomenal that he could teach his system and get them to execute it in one year."
