Foley to start vs. Clemson

September 28, 1994|By Paul McMullen | Paul McMullen,Sun Staff Writer

COLLEGEL PARK — COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland has won both games in which Kevin Foley attempted more passes than Scott Milanovich. Coach Mark Duffner isn't going to mess with a good thing, so Foley will get his second start Saturday at Clemson, where the Terps can move above .500 this late in the season for the first time since 1990.

"Foley will start, and we'll go into the game with the same plan as last week," said Duffner, referring to a 31-7 rout of Wake Forest, when Foley ran the Terps for seven series and Milanovich five. "It's not an easy situation, and I'm not in the fortune-telling business. I'm not sure how long we'll keep on doing it this way."

Foley is excited by the prospect of his second start, but Milanovich remained upset with the events that have had him go from setting Maryland records for passing yards and touchdowns as a sophomore to coming off the bench as a junior.

"I'm just going out there knowing that if you don't produce, you don't get back in," Milanovich said. "It's hard to play that way. It worked last week, but who knows how long it's going to keep working? That's a lot of pressure. Somebody's going to end up cracking before all is said and done."

A few minutes later, Milanovich softened his tone.

"Me and Kevin were talking the other day, that quarterbacks around the country are going to hate us," said Milanovich, referring to the possibility of the Terps triggering a rash of quarterback platoons. "Maybe our situation is just unique, but I still feel the best way to field a productive offense is to put one guy on the field."

* Walt Williams, a redshirt sophomore from Miami, will start at wide receiver in place of Jermaine Lewis, out with a dislocated shoulder.
