As promised, the Tony Logan Tracker will be a regular feature as the Maryland junior chases the school's punt return record.
Logan, who came in with touchdowns in his previous two games, couldn't break loose for a long return even though Maryland forced seven punts. Credit for that goes as much to Clemson punter Dawson Zimmerman, who turned in a fine performance.
Logan had three returns for 28 yards, which isn't a bad day and was still more than nine yards a return. But he lost a good chunk of his advantage on the pace set by Steve Suter in the 2002 season:
TONY LOGAN PUNT RETURN TRACKER (YARDS THROUGH EACH GAME)
Next week will be an opportunity to crate a little more space; Suter had only three return yards in the seventh game of the 2002. That was a home victory against Georgia Tech, as then-new Yellow Jackets coach Chan Gailey was able to spread his patented brand of benign, 7-5ish blandness to not only his own team but also opponents almost immediately.
It should be noted Suter had huge days in Weeks 8 and 9 in 2002, meaning Logan will need a substantial return or two in the next few games to remain ahead of Suter's pace. But for now, things still look favorable for a legitimate run at the record --- assuming opponents bother to kick to LOgan in the coming weeks.
