ALCATRAZ ISLAND, Calif. -- In an age when college football coaches hope their players stay out of trouble, Ralph Friedgen brought his Maryland Terrapins to one of history's most notorious prisons Monday afternoon.

Visiting Alcatraz, a penitentiary that has been closed since 1963 and is now an official U.S. landmark, is part of the nonfootball itinerary for the Terps as they get ready for Friday night's Emerald Bowl against Oregon State at San Francisco's AT&T Park.
