Running through a few items of note leftover from Maryland's spring game Friday night ...
* The 13-13 tie rang a bit hollow for players, who had a dinner of steak and lobster on the line.
Coach Randy Edsall decided everyone would receive the quality dinner after time expired.
"I really didn’t want to go any more plays than that," Edsall said. "The kids, they wanted it to go into overtime. I thought the guys played hard and that we didn’t need to go into overtime."
* Wide receiver Nigel King suffered a hyperextended knee, but Edsall said the sophomore should be fine. King had only an 11-yard reception before leaving with the injury.
* The night's leading tackler? Shawn Petty, who had 13 stops.
Petty, of course, started the last four games of 2012 at quarterback. And he even had a brief appearance at quarterback in the first half.
"They were just allowed to put some trick plays in," Edsall said. "I allowed them to do some trick plays. That’s something they put in. That’s not going to be something that’s going to be in our arsenal for the season."
* There really isn't much reason to dissect the quarterback play. C.J. Brown, once fully recovered, will enter preseason practice as the presumptive starter just like last season. Ricardo Young, who received plenty of work this spring, will be in a backup role.
But just for fun, here's the breakdown of Young's night while throwing to Stefon Diggs and everyone else:
Diggs: 8-for-9, 159 yards, 1 touchdown
Everyone Else: 4-for-12, 26 yards, 1 interception
* Sophomore Brad Craddock made both of his field goals, including a 40-yarder to tie it in the fourth quarter. The Aussie is working exclusively at kicker this year, and Maryland's hope is he will settle into that role by the time the season arrives. Friday was a good sign in that regard.
* Edsall said there would not be permanent captains next season, instead opting for a 10-player leadership council with representatives from each position group.
Maryland had essentially the same structure under former coach Ralph Friedgen, although the council consisted of four seniors, three juniors, two sophomores and one freshman.
The 10 players Edsall named to the council:
QB C.J. Brown
C Sal Conaboy
OLB Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil
WR Stefon Diggs
ILB Cole Farrand
CB Jeremiah Johnson
NT Darius Kilgo
LS Greg Parcher
TB Albert Reid
TE Dave Stinebaugh
That group includes three seniors, five juniors and two sophomores.
